    Crash, keep us posted. I'm right there trying to lose. But, it is not coming off. I think it's an age thing. Plus 2 rounds of prednisone this winter didn't help. Then there is the stress eating.

    So, I'll be following this for inspitration!!!
    "I enjoy surviving." Yes, well I certainly hope so as the other side of that is "DEATH!"

    good luck Crash. Stick too it, and remember it doesnt come off overnight. It took years to get there, it will take a while to get back. Don't give up, just take small steps...but keep steppin'

    The first week has passed, and I have one more week of the "fat flush" before I start eating the way I plan to for a long time. My goal as I started was to lose 100 pounds, and I wanted to average about 2 pounds a week. I knew that the first week would be a bigger number (wish I could do it every week), but then would get down closer to my 2 pound a week goal. Today I got weighed in at 296, for a loss of 14 pounds.

    Good night, if I got results like that I'd be close to done! Fat flush, that has to be brutal.

    My weight doesn't count right now because I went to the bush and didn't eat much. I know I lost some but it's probably mostly intestinal.

    That's an impressive start and a realistic goal. Good job.

    You are moving at a nice clip and it has to be gratifying to see so much progress so quickly.
    How do you feel?

    I have not. Probably because I refused to face my own reality.

    Great work Crash. Keep it up. At this rate, you'll reach your goal in no time!

    I'm curious about your exercises. I know your knee limits what you can do (no jumping jacks, etc.) and I was just wondering about alternative exercises you are doing that don't strain your knee.
