    thanks

    i been up and down my whole life

    i was 3-4 times larger at the age of 4 than every other boy in kindergarten. runs in the family. it skipped my parents but all 5 of my brothers and sisters got hit by it. comes from my dad's side. his dad and a bunch of aunts on his side and big giant fat fucks

    i'd say by the 9th grade i couldn't fit in booths anymore and for the better part of my adult life i carried around 550 @ 6'4"

    at 18 i lost 200 pounds on my own gained it back

    in 96 i lost 300 and gained it back

    since then i've been up and down 100 here 50 there 200 here 75 there a never ending battle

    in jan i was 450 i'm around 285 now but i carry it will at my height i went from a 56 jeans in jan into a 38 now

    another 40 pounds and i'll be content

    thank you thank you

    i'd also like to thank power walking at the mall 3 times a day

    Atkins

    and Percocet

    and a little starvation here and there i like to fast for a day or 2 or 3 from time to time

    fasting is the best. i get the most energy by not eating at all

    i avoid carbs and sugar like the plague

    instantpot is an electric pressure cooker. i picked up the 7in1 and it has tons of things it can do. also, it's fast. just google the name.
    depending on mixer you are looking at, you can get killer deals. i picked my kitchen aid up at bed bath & beyond on a killer deal.
    the knife sharpener is the chef's choice trizor XV. i converted all of my knives from the standard 20* down to 15*. they are razors now.

    Congrats on the healthy lifestyle. How are your knees? What are doing for exercise?

    Edit: oh I see, walking!

    Wow.....200 pounds is impressive. Sounds like you have good will-power. Most people these days would need bariatric surgery to lose that much. I applaud you!
