Either way I don't care. I am starting to feel happy again. I tell my grandpa this all the time, this move has saved my life. And as you can see between being happier and being in a place like this, I am starting to build new found confidence.

I am really happy for you man and I mean that! :)

I feel like I would be a lot happier with myself if I could just move away from my Mom but it will take time. I can't just up and leave because I have no way of transportation and I can't work because I would loose my disability benefits and in order to get my benefits I need somebody like my Mom to be my payee.

I know my Mom loves me but I don't think it was right for her to keep me from growing up for so long just because of my disabilty. There are plenty of people with Aspergers and Bipolar Disorder who do an OK job of taking care of themselves.

Gah Oh my God I'm gonna have to actually play forum dad...

I just saw some of the pictures and conversation.

I wanted to step in and say, don't make your perception/attractiveness to others be your driving factor in getting fit, losing weight, making changes.
This is gonna sound like a line but honestly - if you focus on getting yourself fit and above all HEALTHY you'll live better, you'll move better, you'll be stronger and the stuff that kind of happens on auto pilot inside your head when this is all taking place...that will make changes to your personality, how you carry yourself, confidence levels etc.

I'm married. let myself go a lot, for a long time...right now I have a shitload of weight I need to drop...and I know how hard it seems...though I also know how easy it actually is. I've knocked off weight before, and trust me...most of it is the psychological battle you wage against "lazy you", which is a big part of us all.

You just need to be patient. Don't hop on the scales all the time. Don't worry about the numbers, the times, anything like that - just worry about the things you have to do.

Eat right. Cut the shit you know you shouldn't eat/drink by at least 80%. Super fatty, deep fried foods. Foods that are high in sugar. Night snacks (after dinner just keep it light...if you eat while bored - take a walk) and lots of bread and/or processed food are bad things.
Keep it fresh.
Introduce fish to your diet. Eat salad even if you don't like it.
Don't kill your vegetables - just give them a steam or a blanch.
Learn how to make some seasoning mixes and dressings.

I've been making some changes with the wife over the last week...she's been smashing it...I'm actually on day today 1 of re-attending gym (later tonight) and the "full" diet.
Nutella had to go. Takeaway food. Chocolate. Biscuits/cookies. Ice Cream. Soda. Definitely soda. Gah. Save more money on this shit than I'm spending on gym.

You guys can do it...and it's way easier physically than it is mentally...you just need to retrain how you think when it comes to this stuff. Many people do.
Just make sure the number one person you do it for is you (and yknow maybe your future generations). The physical stuff becomes habitual. Just get yourself to do it. Once you've started it's easy.

Good luck. We're in this together.

Actually the real reason I'm needing to loose weight is because of some health problems I have been having lately but it also makes me feel good to look good.

Cheebs, I'm using you and Spal as inspiration. You know, since you're older than the kids.

I've needed to drop weight for a few years now, since they told me I'm diabetic and have high blood pressure. Changing your eating habits is very hard mentally. In fact, my doctor had suggested I see a therapist for my "food issues".

I know what I need to do, I just need to get in the right mental status and get it done. Shit, quitting smoking was easier than this.

I used to have the hardest time with dieting but once I had gallbladder surgery and found out that I had a fatty liver and would end up getting cirrosis before 50 it became easier for me to force myself into eating healthier. I don't want my neice growing up without her uncle. :(

At this time 6 years ago I weighed 350 lb. I now weigh 200 lb. I had gastric bypass but I have also worked very hard. I still have a gut on me but I have dropped so much weight And it has helped me so much health-wise and it has done a lot for my confidence.

when I decided to get the surgery I Did It For My Health. Now I work out also for my health and As I said before, it helps me build confidence. I know looks do matter When it comes to finding people attractive. It has nothing to do with being shallow, it's just what attracts you. It's not your fault and it's not their fault. I know I'm not the prettiest thing out there but I also know I'm not the ugliest thing out there but With that said, I'm not really a random hookup kind of guy anyway. I mean I would do it, I have done it, it's just that Isn't really my thing, I'd rather be having sex in a meaningful relationship. In a place like Las Vegas there are lots of choices for men and women and with my looks aside, I just feel like I don't have the proper Mojo or social skills to
Pick up women. For the time being I am just trying to focus on me And work on the things I need to work on and then maybe next year when I start back the college I can meet someone and see what happens from there.
