    How can one maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle 24/7? Is it possible to always have that drive and motivations to have the "ideal" body weight? Do you often blame comfort food for the "root of all evil"?

    These are some of the first things i think about when i woke up unfortunately lol.

    For some odd reason i can not get any lower then what i am now currently in weight (193). I use to weigh about 275 so i think this was a BIG step for me. How can i get to that next level without becoming "manerexic"? Thus far i have relied on sports (wrestling, football, and track) to get me fit, but now i can't anymore because i sprainned my foot snowboarding.

    GIVE ME SOME ADVICE AND OR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.....

    If you are having trouble working out because of an injury, then it is even more important than ever to watch what you eat. Avoid high fat foods such as the junk food you seem to crave. I have had a sore knee for nearly a month now which makes it impossible to run or cycle without causing pain. I am sticking to vigorous walking on the treadmill until I am satisfied that the knee has recovered.

    To be honest being 193 and 6' 1" you seem pretty fit to me, your body type is not the skinny type, more big-boned.

    You need to approach it from a different angle

    when you're doin the same things over and over and not get any better results

    then switch tactics
    What that is ... is up to you
    maybe hire a trainer
    try out a new workout routine
    hit up a P90X video

    anything that attacks the problem in a new way

    Well, first let me say "congrats" for making the progress you have to 193.

    Well I wonder if you need to work on balance in your life.. maybe you have some tension or challenges in some other area. If I'm off base, then I'd focus on specific goals when you get up in the morning to take your mind off your eating goals.

    Also be realistic about how much you really should weigh. I have a couple of friends who have lost weight to the point they don't look good. Evaluate what is most healthy and aim for that weight.. no some skinny substitute.

    yeah i get at what you guys are saying.... I also DRINK WAY TO MUCH STARBUCKS! Maybe i can cut back on that and some other stuff too. Oh and i went to get weighed in and found that i am normal for my age and height. The phyiscal instructor also said that some of weight issues can be inherited too. Like the fact that i have bronchitis, and high blood presure from my dad's side of the family.

    food, stretching, and rest are just as important as activity.
