I've been reading through your results and I'm very inspired by you. At your age and weight, to lose the weight you have lost is fantastic. I hope you are keeping up with it with some success. I just received my shipment this afternoon of 2.0
I'm very overweight as well. I'm 38 years old, lost my wife to breast cancer 1 year ago, and have 2 little girls. I weigh around 370 lbs. and my diet has been horrible since I lost my wife. I can't keep going this way with 2 little girls to take care of on my own. It breaks my heart to imagine them without a mother and a father if I continue this way. I'm an emotional eater, convenience eater, and like you, a food addict. Reading your progress really has me inspired and I hope you continue to keep updating us to your progress.
Tomorrow I will begin my soylent journey and get my health in check. Keep up the good work my man!
edit: You might want to take a look at your BMI and maybe not get too set on the 160 lb. number. Depending on your body frame, body type, it might be too small. Not saying it is wrong, but when I was at my healthiest weight and when I looked my best was my senior year in high school. Normal clothes fit on me, I was a 34-36" waist, which for my body frame and bone structure, was perfect for me. I am about 5-10 or 5-11, and really my ideal weight is 180 lbs. I would just get to a weight where you look and you feel great. Don't concern yourself too much with a number. I had a personal trainer 5 years ago, and he always told me it is about your "waist" not your "weight" you need to get your waist to a healthy range...weight is all relative. It is a good gauge of overall progress but it doesn't tell the whole story. Waist, not weight...I think that's pretty good advice...lose those inches...that's more important.
