    What's your plan, Andrew? The most important thing, IMHO, is to have realistic, attainable short-term goals so that you have something you can shoot for and achieve to encourage yourself forward. Once you hit that first goal, and you've proven to yourself that you can do it, you build on that sense of accomplishment to keep driving to long term goals and real change.

    agreed, once you start to see those initial changes happen with your body, it's a healthy addiction that you just can't kick

    Don't give up is the important part. Obviously this is important to you or you wouldn't be looking for ways to improve.

    Do you have a workout buddy or any kind of support in this endeavor? Being heavy most of my life and running through about every different doctor prescribed, diet center-based, and fad diet in the last 20 years (with moderate success), one of the most important things I've found is to not try to do it alone. Having someone to encourage you and talk to you about day to day concerns and motivation is critical.

    Motivation technique that worked for me was using a large calendar on my wall next to the front door. Everyday that I did some exercise, usually walking, I would put a giant red 'X' over the day. Even if I didn't feel great, I would do at least 20 minutes on bad day, and 45-60 minutes on a good day. Everyday you make an 'X'. After a week or so, you just want to keep the chain of X's going.

    Effort is like interest, a little everyday really adds up!

    I totally agree with having visual motivation. That's why I feel this website is so good. It helps chart and organize your progress towards health and fitness.

    So far I am liking this site. Great way to meet others and help keep each other motivated. I agree you need to have your goals and plan written out and posted somewhere you can see them all the time. If you are in a funk or need that extra motivation just remember why you are doing this. Reminding yourself of your goals always helps re-ignite the fire!

    Reading good mags about it also proves a fine motivation. To begin with an exc routine, I'd keep a Mens Health issue in my backpack. And if I had a bad day, I'd read a couple of articles and that is enough to fire my clay again.

    Good luck Andrew. The best advice I can offer is take it one day at a time. If I can lose the kind of weight I have lost in the last year and a half then I know you can too. I have lost 155 lbs in the past year and a half and I was by all definition a food addict. So I know you can do this. Stay Strong and keep the Faith!
