Got started a couple days ago with a daily walk of 15 min. Today increased to 2 daily walks of 15 min each in the hot Florida sun.

The next step is going to increase to 3 daily walks. Two 15 min walks at work, and one after work at home. After this I will adjust my walk at home and increase it on days I don't fish.

Better than nothing. Start off slow and gain momentum.

I haven't lost but a few pounds, BUT I seem to be out danger as far as immediate heart problems.  The Defibrillator/Pacemaker incision seems to have finally healed and I'm cleared to do anything I feel like doing. Only thing after lying around in and out of the hospital for more than two months, I don't have any strength or energy.  I'm sure the medication has something to do with this as well.
My wife and son (who lives with us) have finally decided to lose some weight so it will be easier with us all on board.
Played golf today for the second time.  Only made nine holes but it's a start.
I can fish o.k. but afraid to go alone.  It's hard to get in and out of the boat! 
Also I have to keep everything covered because the antibiotic I'm on makes my skin extremely sensitive to the sun.
I reduced my "work" schedule from five nights a week to two.  (I'm a musician).
So now all the excuses are gone, so it's time  to get serious.  First goal is to get below 270.  I'm 6' 5" and eventually need to get down to below 250. 
Piece of cake right?  No, make that salad.  :)

Juiced for the first time in a long time this morning.

2 Medium Carrots, 1 cucumber, 1 kiwi, 3 handfuls of spinach, 1 grapefruit.

Got a little over 10oz of juice out of all that. The spinach yields the least and the cucumber the most.

I know they were just trying to help me with my cancer to get me better but I just couldn't drink that stuff.

I finally started getting rid of some of the weight that the Prednezone put on me this last fall and winter (I will never take that drug again. Just horrible).

I've been drinkin' a LOT of water. It's easier when it's 80-90 degrees out.

And while I still have pain issues, I'm starting a little workout regimen with free weights. Dig it- I AM getting back into "better" shape.

Dale that's good to hear and just keep at it. I'm still holding my weight at around 190 LBs so all is good on my end also.

Been doing at least one healthy meal per day and itís not enough. Time to get strict with the diet. This week I started eating 2 healthy meals and yesterday I started drinking green tea. 2 times a day.
BTW green tea helped me lose a bunch of weight a long time ago. That stuff helps burn fat and improves metabolism. Iím hoping it helps me again.

My main goal now is to cut out sugar and carbs as best I can. Itís not easy since most of the foods I love are full of carbs.
Iíve also decided to cut out red meat.

This rain is stopping me from doing my 15 min walks at work. I need to find breaks in the rain and get them in though.

Thanks Lip!
Iím serious about the life style change. I went to publix yesterday and bought healthy foods. Iím also going to start taking lunch to work. Got me a lunch bag and some meal prep containers that are perfect to keep portion control.
Long gone are the days of eating a massive plate of food.

Rick, I have lost almost 35 pounds since last October. The biggest contributor to that was I started running around 3 times per week.
The second part was my diet. For several reasons, it is quite difficult for my to find and buy all these healthy style foods and figure out all of the fat, carbs, calories, etc. So what I do is cut out a lot of meat and replaced with veggies and just reduce the portion sizes.
The third thing I have done is cut out alcohol almost all together. I was never a huge drinker (don't listen to Lip, he lies  ~beer~ ), but I did like a few drinks on the weekend. However, now that I am running 3 times per week, I feel like I am cheating myself if I have a drink. Eventually, I just stopped wanting to drink.

Sorry for jumping in your thread with my story, but I hope it might help you a little.

Good luck with your lifestyle change, you will feel so much better for it sooner rather than later.

When I retired in early 2016 I was just a touch over 300 lbs. I am presently right around 250 and hopefully losing some more. I would be happy right around 215, haven't been under 200 lbs since my Military days.
My biggest help was not having Fast Food for lunch every day. Then I found out I am Type 2 Diabetic so I had to watch my Carb intake. Well, that hasn't worked out so well lately. My blood sugar in the morning is elevated more but that might be part of this stomach thing. I've got an appointment with a Gastro Doctor in early June to see what that is.
When I lost my most weight, down to 200 lbs, a few years ago I had Lean Cuisine for lunch every day and did a quite bit of walking. Cindy and I started walking a couple days a week but that has slacked off a bit.
Good luck Rick.

Iím glad you shared. This isnít my thread this is a thread for everyone!
I quit drinking a few years ago. Iíll have the occasional whiskey at a family party but thatís about it. By occasionally I mean almost never lol.

Youíre correct potion control is important and the running helps for sure. I wonít be doing any running yet. Im going to try and get back to being able to walk a 5k. If I can do a 5k 3 to 4 times a week Iíll be able to drop weight till I can get to the point where I can try and run.
Going to have to put fishing on the back burner during the week to accomplish the walking.

Maybe work in some spinnerbait only fishing during the week? Just one cast, reel, and move, one cast, reel and move. I know it won't burn as many calories as a 15 minute walk, but if you do it for an hour, maybe it will be about the same. I know the goal is to maintain an increased heart rate, so I don't know if that will work or not, but you could try it once to see. Just a (possibly stupid) thought. I guess the only problem would be if it turns out to be a killer technique, you won't be walking as much lo

It was a technique that worked well for me last year and put some nice fish on the bank for me.

Thanks, the down side with Lean Cuisine diets is the salt intake. All that stuff has so much sodium.

Carbs are bad. They are the sole reason why I gain weight. When I cut them out, I lose weight. It's that simple. So that's my strategy. But I am only cutting out the bad carbs, not the good ones.
