    I am starting this topic,in an effort to build a support group with fellow overweight Real Jocker. Probably we can share, support and work together in order to build and rebuild our body, health and self confidence.

    I know we are in a minority here since most of RJ are fit jock showing of their shirtless body and six pack. But I am sure , there some of you here who in the same boat as me.

    How about it guys?

    When I was 70 lbs overweight, it took a "borderline atrial fib" reading on an EKG to kick-start my fitness oriented lifestyle. Now I do it because it's fun. There's nothing more satisfying than working up a massive sweat on a bicycle, then going home for a shower and some weight lifting (home gym).

    Once you find an active sport or hobby that you enjoy, it makes getting/staying in shape much easier; and new people you meet tend to think you've been in shape all your life.

    BTW, I saw a VERY overweight guy mountain biking today. He was a bit slow, but still managed to hit all the advanced trails with steep climbs (I stayed behind him for a few minutes cause the trail is very narrow with few places to pass). Just watching him was motivation for me to do even more.

    Really? I found it by accident looking for porn...I mean...yeah, it was porn. I'm not going to lie.

    To be honest, sometimes I feel weird being on this. A friend of mine convinced me to join. I don't believe I'll be losing any real weight anytime soon?

    I was obese for most of my life. It's a hard path to change, but it can be done.

    This kind of thing is the first step. Good luck, bud.

    The kicker for me was the end of my last relationship five years ago. I had gotten up to 210 pounds (on a 5'8" frame).

    Larkin nailed it - this sort of thing can be an important first step, and there's lots of great resources here you can utilize (including some super guys who know exactly what you're attempting to do). Trust me, if I can do it at age 45, you can too!

    Good luck to all you guys.

    down from 17st 8.5lb (that's 246.5lb) to 15st (that's 210lb).

    I am faltering a bit at the moment. I really need to enthuse myself to do exercise.

    It gets even harder as I get older -- if I had kept up with my weight loss back in my early 20's I'd be in a much better place today.

    I've recently cut out most starchy carbs, again, and began to look more seriously into Paleo, since it seems to most resemble my more successful losses.

    But it's an effin' struggle. Every. Single. Day.

    You start by getting honest, about who and what you are and how you got that way, and...by developing a plan that you execute for success.

    It's not rocket science.

    First thing you need to do is to get pictured and properly profiled.

    Remember this: Anything worth doing should be worth doing well. Start with your Real Jock profile.

    Very good idea for a topic. I hope it gives hope to people who think there is nothing to do about it.
    With a good diet and a lot of exercise, my father lost 30kg (sorry I don't know how many pounds it makes) in 3 months.

    I lost 20lbs my first month into diet and exercise, but it halted at 170. since going to the gym more it has creeped back up to 188. I'm not really mad about how my body looks, so I haven't put much work into lowering my weight. It's supposed to be 160, but nothing I do seems to get me below 170.

    30 kg = 66.1387 pounds. Great progress. Big congrats to your father.

    Always nice to see RJers can rely on you for supportive words, Dave.

    Hey, I said it in the past tense.

    Seriously, you look great now. Ruggedly handsome.

    Look quick...this message will self-destruct in 10 seconds.
