BUT I visit here a lot, and have had a nice experience. So I thought, why not create a thread that encourages me and others who are in the same pickle to stick with our diet/exercise plans? It's possible most here aren't fat Americans (this ain't Reddit, btw ;) like myself who need to lose weight, but maybe you have other fitness goals and have a hard time sticking with them. This thread is for you, to use (somehow) as a way to share your struggles and victories, etc. Or just talk about your workout plan, where you are physically, etc. :P
Anyway, me personally, I'm at about 187 lbs, where I want and should be at 165 lbs (preferably with a six pack, eventually). I'm trying to lose 2 lbs a week, but like many others I've always used food as a emotional crutch and while I like swimming, transportation to the YMCA right now is tough. HOWEVER, if I'm using both hands to play video games, then I don't have another one to use to eat, so that helps (except for my eyes, which can become strained).
