Some great suggestions/stories here. All of them work for some of them. Like was hinted in several other posts you have to find what you are willing to accept. Any physician will tell you if you can lose 10% of your body weight in a 1 year time frame that is incredible. There are a lot of ways to do it much faster if you like, but again, what are you willing to accept. Set S.M.A.R.T. goals and work everyday towards those. When times get tough, and they will, remember that very first post you made. Remember your why!
