Don't be!  Join me!  I weighed in at 325, so this isn't exactly easy for me.  If I can do this, I believe that most people could.  Also, there is strength in numbers, so why not join me?  We can become accountability partners and send both phone or text encouragements.

Sounds great.  I actually managed to lose almost 20 lb at the first few months of the year.  I went on vacation and added that whole exam that I spent hours studying for and fell back into my old eating habits...gained every pound of it back.  Just this last week I started cutting back on some of my eating.

I did this about 13 years ago. Got down from around 260 to 160. My target weight was 180. So I was way smaller than what I wanted to be. Right now around 190-200 and need to be back to 180. We have a fitness center at work and I try to hit it every day but I have been so busy that I have not been in 2 weeks and my 34 waist is getting tight again. Will go there this afternoon.

13 years ago I started walking, went on the Slim Fast diet (which DOES WORK if you follow the directions). Then I started running 3 miles a day and lost 100 pounds. 

2 years ago when they put in the fitness center at work I was back to 3 miles a day. Then got some serious heel pain and decided to "tough it out" and run anyway -- bad decision. Went to the foot dr and they found I had a heel spur. Here is my xray:



As you can see that spur was rubbing against my muscle and was casuing my pain so running did NOT help, there is no way to "tough it out". I eventually ordered special inserts for my shoes and work boots and they did the trick. That and taping up my foot (much like a boxer tapes up his hands to box). The tape would pull the muscle off the spur and relieved the pain. Been almost a year now with no pain.

So I gave up the treadmill and started using the Eliptical Machine at work because it is low impact on the foot. I go 3 miles each time I use it, sometimes more (up to 6 miles) but since it has been 2 weeks since I have been on it, it will be tough to get to 3 miles today.

Praying bro! Hope you hit your goal, it can be done, if I did it, anyone can. For the most part I have kept off the weight but no struggle to get back to 180.

I need to watch how much I eat. Buffet style food service is easy to abuse.

I've been through those heel spurs.  I had my right foot operated on in 2004.  I had the left one operated on in 2006.  I am no stranger to foot pain due to spurs.  The corrective insoles did not help me at all.  They made my feet, back, and legs hurt even more.  If you get to hurting badly enough with heel spurs, surgery is the only option.  Quite frankly, I am very glad that I had mine done.

I don't run.  I am a walker though.  I love to put on my headphones and just hit the pavement.  I don't do it so much for the fitness although that is a plus.  I prefer to walk to just unwind from the day, pray sometimes, think, and just make the world leave me alone for a while.

I hope to get down to 220.  For my height, the doctors say I should weigh 180.  I think they are crazy.  I got down to 206 back in 2000 and I had bags under my eyes and you could count most of my ribs.  I was too light at 206.  I felt and looked my best around 220.  If I can get back to that weight, I would be quite pleased.

I'm at around 230 right now.  All the charts say I'm supposed to be around 140-150...realistically I would like to see 160-165ish again.

I decided not to have the spur cut out. My Dr said they can grow back and it is only a final option and with treatment it would clear up, which it did... He said this "You treat heel spurs, you don't cut them out. You wear glasses and it treats your vision. You don't cut out your eye you treat it!". Strange analogy I know  scratch

That's odd, really.  I went to a bone specialist after seeing a pediatrist for some time and just having more and more pain "treating" the symptoms.  The bone specialist told me that after they get so big and start having multiples sprout up as I was having that you have to do something.  They went into my foot, cut the tendon back a bit, planed off the heel until the bones bled so that the tendon would properly reattach, and stitched me back up.  The surgery lasted less than 30 minutes for each, and I have had no problems since.  I don't even have to wear orthotic inserts, either.  Those things made me hurt in my legs and back so much that I will never wear them again.

Other than the inserts, the pediatrist just wanted to keep giving me cortisone injections for pain.  Those shots would only last for a day or so and then I'd be right back in pain.  Cortisone weakens the muscle and tendons which can make those spurs poke through even more giving you more pain.  At the time, I worked in a tire factory being on my feet for 12 hours per shift.  Foot pain is not something you can work with, ya' know?  I had to do something.

Sadly, our medical system is more about treating symptoms than they are about cures.  Give them the pill, the insert, the shot, whatever......just keep them coming back so we can make more money.  I'd much rather do something that eliminates the pain with no further treatment.

I'm somewhat in the same boat -- I work in a paper mill and work 12 hour shifts on my feet and then was jogging 3 miles at the end of 12 hours. But I was one of the lucky ones, the orthotics did the trick -- not custom ones but I found some for 35 bucks that did the trick. I only had one shot and it was a steroid shot not a cortizone shot. 

And I don't mind swapping out the treadmill for the eliptical machine. Much easier on my foot and no pain but I dont dare go back to the treadmill. Haven't weight in yet this week either, will weight in at the END of the week because I have a feeling I won't like what I see...
