Well my diet is stop eating anything to do with sugar e.g. cakes, sweets etc. and no meal more than 250calories. I've been eating helathy food for at least 3 months without any sugar/fat etc... Also I go to the gym 4-5 times a week for 1-2 hours. I have to work it around school and work... :wink: Its hard :(

Yep unfortunately we don't get a white house to lock ourselves in while we fight this battle! But we do get the support and encouragement of everyone on this site - and that's worth a mint!

Good luck Mate, you can do this!

Welcome to the forum Michael! Well done for managing to fit in your excercise around your other commitments. The gym can get a bit boring sometimes can't it! Maybe think of some other excercise you could substitute every so often, just to keep things interesting...

Good luck :D

Good luck with your weight loss, sounds like you're off to a good start already! It is hard to fit these things in around study and work, but it can and must be done!! :) It's just a way of life for me now so it comes first!
