Started getting healthy again back on September 27, 2017. As of about noon today I am just a couple of pounds of hitting the 100lbs lost mark since then. Will hit that mark within a week with no problems. Been a lot of sweat, lot of hours at the gym, a lot of miles, eating clean and just taking better care of myself. I have done it all naturally as well. Eating healthy is the easy part.
Feeling great again and well worth the effort. Got about 15-20 more pounds to get to my goal and then its all about maintaining that weight. Not gonna be an issue at all as I do not want to ever have to lose it again. Learned my lesson from past mistakes.
Also my wife started working on it as well a couple of months before me. She did not have near as much to lose but she has done extremely well in her journey. She looks amazing. We have been married 26 years and have a great relationship still today but the time we share together at the gym has definitely been great for our marriage. Quality time together doing something we both love. Very blessed and thankful for it all.

Wow Mark that is insane weight loss - and to say you did that naturally is something that I have never heard of in my life. 100 pounds in 5 months!!! That is 25 weeks...4 pounds a week (stand back boys I did that without a calculator).

Amazing sir - bow_down

When I hit my weight goal I am going to list the total hours working out or running, total estimated calories burned and total distance. I average about 16-18hrs per week of working out. It's not always easy to get it in. Sometimes I hit the gym late at night or super early in morning. For me its about accountability. I had to put that much effort in to create a daily caloric deficit to get to my goal. I eat pretty clean 99% of the time. I really stay away from anything processed or refined if I can. We eat a paleocentric style most of the time.
The people around me will attest to how I have done it naturally. My Dr. I have seen for over 25 years says I'm literally am in that 5% of the population that can shed weight quickly. Being a Firefighter/paramedic and driving apparatus I can't take anything like a stimulant etc. I also do not care to do so on a personal level. Was not a fan of the surgeries available either. I have just focused on doing it safely and getting fit. The time was just a byproduct. Glad it's happened that fast but I still have a lot of work to do to stay healthy.

I just don't think about how hard it is I just go do it. I hold myself accountable and put my time in even when my motivation is low. To me its just a matter of staying the course.

What were the diet changes that impacted your weight loss the most?

Really hard question to pinpoint just one thing but I am a firm believer that you cannot outwork your diet. I really focus on cutting out anything other than natural sugars in regard to sugar, I really try to avoid processed foods, really limit my bread intake. I still eat dairy usually in yogurt, small amounts of cheese on sandwiches etc and eat smaller portions. Every couple of weeks I might splurge and eat out but its usually at McAllister's, Panera etc when I do. I don't eat much of anything fried. I am a big fan of smoked turkey breast from Rudy's. I buy a lb or so a week and eat it in lettuce wraps instead of using bread for lunch. Try to keep it in the refrigerator at all timesas its so handy and fairly natural. Lots of good things I can still eat I just eat less of them. Wife pretty well cooks with all coconut based products for oil, flour etc. We use honey to sweeten things when needed, We just pay attention to what we call hidden calories in things like dressings, drinks and such. I drink a ton of water which is excellent to help lose weight. You are more full and a hydrated body simply functions better.
I initially started out trying to stay under 2000 calories per day when I was pushing 340lbs. As I lost weight and really stepped up the workouts I allowed myself to take in a few more clean calories to help with recovery etc. Its a fine line though. I snack on fresh fruit normally and try to eat as balanced as I can. I also try not eat past 7:30-8:00PM if I can help it.

To me you gotta have the eating right coupled with a good level of exercising to see the best results. They go hand in hand. I cannot stress enough that all bodies are different and results will vary for everyone. There really is no magic potion, its just staying on top of what you eat and then putting working out pretty high on priority list. There are times it sucks to get up a lot earlier or to work out late at night but with all I have on my plate with my family right now I simply have to work around their Dr. visits, chemo treatments and pharmacy runs. I also still work like most people and have all the stuff that goes with that. some days I catch myself coming and going...LOL
I just try to take advantage of whatever time I get whenever I get it to work out. not to mention its a great stress reliever. It all goes hand in hand.

The biggest key to me is adjusting your "want to". You have to really want to do it. It simply has to be a priority. At least it is that way with me. I don't feel as if I am missing much when it comes to eating. I really have no cravings and to me its perfectly natural to eat like I do. I don't starve myself or get too extreme. I just eat as clean as I can as much as I can. its that simple.
