Being on Prednisone the past few years has caused me to lose my water weight, but gain it back. I went to the nephrologist in early May and was at 188 pounds, but I'm proud to say after lowering my dosage, eating better and exercising when I can, I'm down another 8 pounds. I'm fitting into clothes I haven't in several years and am stoked!

Does anyone have experience with Jenny Craig, and other weight loss programs? Do they work or are a waste of money?

My problem is I am very "illiterate" in terms of nutritional knowledge, exercises, etc. My weight has ballooned to 185 pounds now, whereas I used to weigh 135 when I finished college a decade ago.

I have a sedentary job, work 100-115 hour weeks on average for the last several years, and I have to travel constantly, and I have been using that as an excuse to pig out on junk food, and obviously have no time for regular gym activities. I might sometimes go on a diet of fruits and veggies, but that makes me hungry by mid-day and can't sustain it for long.

Any ideas from those here who succeeded losing weight?

Of course they work. But they're for ignorant/weak people who can't educate themselves/control themselves.

Losing weight is not hard. Just control your diet and get in a little exercise. Eat whole healthy foods (eggs, chicken, lean beef, oatmeal, whole grains and vegetables) and don't overeat. Cut out junk food, soda alcohol and sweets.

And cut carbs. Bread and potatoes are the enemies of weight loss.

I am a calorie Nazi. I keep track of Calories and the fact that I keep track helps me not eat another serving of some foods, or stay away from bagels (320 Cals!?!?!) Egg Whites, chicken, little or no bread when eating meat, Seeds, lots of water, and sleep. I get to eat plenty just have to make small sacrifices and put effort into my Diet Log.

Nutra planet usually throws a pretty good New Years sale. If you are looking for basic supplements or designer stuff (legal only and no research chems), their selection's pretty good. Anyway, look out for it on 12/31 at midnight in case anybody needs to stock up for 2012 or whatever.

Down 17 lbs since the start of the year, diet changes and exercise. I've got a long way to go but I know I can get there. I joined up with some friends to run the Rugged Maniac 5K on May 19th. I went and saw my doc today and they took my BP at 122/80 that's better than it's been in years. The first milestone is 50# which I hope to hit this summer

Awesome! Great job joining a run like that. I've found that registering for events makes it easier to get motivated to train because there is a deadline. What I would caution, though, is to schedule an even harder one down the calendar. It's very easy to hit that event, and then when it's done rest and lose your gains. But nice work! Keep us posted on the run!

So Im 8.5 weeks into a 12 week $100k transformation contest after a serious winter "dirty bulk".

In a little over 8 weeks I've lost over 30 lbs, 8 inches on my waist and retained just about all my strength.

I have about 3.5 weeks left to go and my goal is to drop another 10 lbs so I not have cut up abs, but way over the top stomach veins even haha.

If I succeed and win/place in it, I'll post up some transformation pics because it's already an absurd difference in just 8 weeks, let alone with another 3.5 to fine tune.

What weight did you start this at? What are you at now?

When does the Orange Mane Weight Loss Challenge begin?

Who would be the contestants?

I'll shed more weight than a fat b**** no doubt.

Finished with 50.4 lbs lost, 10" off my waist and a drop of approx 20% bodyfat.

In twelve weeks.

Ended the contest wishing I'd had cut 3 lbs or so more off, but can't really be frustrated with those results.

So you and I talked at the beginning of my little weight loss endeavor a few months back. Thought I would give you the results thus far. I started at 209 and as of this morning I was 184, so 25 pounds of fat burned off, increased my 225 reps from 6 to 10, been working my legs like crazy and recently ran a 10k race at 43.01 (6.57/mm). Problem is, I have the flub around my gut and love handles still. These effers just wont go away!

I hear ya. I am on the last two workouts of my set plan I have been working and am thinking about tryinig out CrossFit for a spell. I did my first session yesterday and had pretty good results and was able to run a 3 miler later in the day, although the soreness is now setting in, just in time for leg day... YAY!

I'm 100% bought in to Intermittent Fasting (leangains.com for more info).

If Martin Berkhan told me to drink my own piss, I would.
