I probably wont get a reply to this seeing as how the other introduction threads are also with no replies. But hello everyone, I look forward to bugging Sarah with all my questions regarding the stuff I know I shouldn't drink or eat anyways... lol I am a blogger (ugh) an activist, and a construction worker.

One year ago I was searching what was in fast food, (I use to eat a bunch of crap before) in my searches I was lurking the prison planet forum (I hate how everything is stickied there making it all clutered up) anyways, I went to the health section and saw a post by Sarah, I ended up here and have been coming back every so often.

I like to credit this site as one of the main reasons I began eating healthier and stopped eating garbage. thank you health wyze for influencing me to losing 60 pounds, Im 6' 1 weighed 250 went down to 190, got a girlfriend and went up to 210!!! lol gotta get right.

Welcome to the forum.

The important thing is not how much weigh, but what your fat to muscle ratio is. If you're a muscular guy, weighing 250lbs is not unreasonable. A lot of people go to the gym to lose weight, and then flip out when they see their weight actually increasing, because muscle weighs more than fat.

With you being a construction worker, being 6 feet tall, and weighing 210 pounds, most guys ought to be envious of the condition you are in.

Welcome, I am fairly new here myself. Good for you for changing you diet and getting healthier. Well done.

Thank you both, I told everyone last year that I would go one year without soda and fast food.

Today I ate a fish filet fries and a sprite from McDonalds... I wasn't missing much, the food made me feel lazy and the rest of my day was not very accomplishing. I kinda feel disgusted in myself as well. Tomorrow I will probably go get a whopper, I shouldn't but I think afterwards I will begin another year of "freedom fasting" (being free from garbage food) and then working on my muscle to fat ratio, meaning I need to get back to lifting.
