Not many people will remember me from RMMB but I did post there on occasion, and I believe this is my first post here on TiB. Focus: On January 1st, 2009 I weighed exactly 318 pounds. As of today, December 2nd, 2009 I weigh exactly 234 pounds. I did all this while working part time and going to school full time for an engineering degree. I also smoke pot regularly (several times a day for about 8 months). The hardest part was giving up drinking. I played football for 14 years and declined opportunities to play in college because of a terrible coach who turned me away from the sport. Biggest regret of my entire life was to stop playing. This is actually where I learned the work ethic to start this cardio workouts to lose weight.
