Since I quit smoking 17 years ago the pounds have slowly accumulated add to that the fact I take a medication that gives me a horrific appetite and I could weigh 400 pounds. The medication does something to whatever part of my brain (no comments please)and I just keep eating.
My ideal weight is around 175 - 185 for my height and until recently I was running at 210.
I've begun to drop some weight by reading labels for sugar content, serving size and then weighing the portions I take on a kitchen scale. I've dropped about 7 pounds so far but, I still have to push myself away from the table because the medication is still working.
Also looking into a stationary bike to help burn some calories and keep up on the cardio.
Just my 2¢ worth
