    A lot of the issues that I have are weight

    related. I used to weigh 400 lbs. (28.5 st, for those of you in the UK). If you look at my picture in my profile, you can see I don't weigh that anymore. Now I weigh 165 (11.7 st). Got it done with diet and exercise. People always ask me if my life is better. I can't say yet...

    In 2003, I weighed in at 203lbs/92KG.

    At 5'10'' tall (around 180cm) I was a little chubby. I decided to start jogging every day as well as doing my mom's exercise tapes and playing DDR. Combined with watching what I eat, I dropped my weight down to 165lbs/74KG and have remained there ever since.

    I have an experience of losing about 55 lbs (25

    kg). Took me over a year, just by keeping my diet healthy and excercising. I'm now 123 lbs, 5'7" height, keeping the result for fifteen months now.

    I started at 215 and dropped down to 190.

    I have been hovering at 195 ever since. I know my eating habits are partly to blame for my weight gain but i have also been hitting the weights fairly hard. It's tough to objectively say wether it's muscle or fat keeping up my weight.
