    Question How much weight have you lost from your all-time high?

    Yesterday the bookieoffers started a thread asking about fitness training and losing weight in this thread exercise/fitness/training - anyone taking part. And in that thread he mentioned the very popular weight loss thread started just under a year ago by Peter Arena of WBX Affiliates: Weight Loss!.

    So, given the interest of many of the folks here in trying to get in better shape and lose weight, as indicated in the above threads, and given that webmastering is a pretty sedentary occupation, I thought I'd make this week's poll about losing weight.

    If you look at your all-time high weight, is that where you are now? Or have you lost weight since then?

    Be sure to share your personal stories in a post. What's worked, what hasn't, in terms of keeping weight off over the long term.

    Personally, a few months ago I began a cardiac rehabilitation program, and so have been more careful about what I eat, and also have been exercising a several times each week. That combination has allowed me to reverse a trend of adding a couple pounds a year that has gone on far too long. Not that I've lost that much weight, but I am down 10 pounds from when I started, something I was never able to do before. And in my mind I know I can keep the downward trend up for some time before I reach a point I will be happy with over the longer term.

    I'm at my all time high at this moment. In the past I never had problems with high weight. But the last year it is going higher and higher. And my condition is going down.
    Last week I was on vacation with friends and I couldn't follow them climbing a mountain. I didn't like that at all.

    So for me it is time to start loosing weight now. I'm gonna start with doing some more exercising.

    Good luck to you Michael.

    Do men even weigh themselves? I look ok, but if they didn't keep putting Snickers on offer, I'd probably look better.

    LOL. This is a much bigger problem than we currently pass the time of day for. If you are anything like me or any other affiliate worth their salt sitting down at the PC trying to make a success of their site for 12+ hours every day it is extremely unhealthy.

    Last year I made 16st and I couldn't believe it when I stood on the scales. But honestly WTF do you expect when all you do is sit down all day and drink beer in the evening?

    I stopped eating bread, rice, pasta and potatoes in any quantity and the weight is slowly falling off me. I'm down to 15st still drinking beer two nights a week though.

    The bonus of not drinking so much is you gain clarity over thinking and that is really important for creativity.

    I got myself a couple of dogs recently and getting up early in the morning at 6am and walking six miles is wonderful for thinking time and exercise.

    nerdfitness.com and marksdailyapple.com are my favourite sites for this stuff.

    At one point I weighed 90kg (198lb). I lost 30kg and went up and down over the years between 60kg-75kg. Early last year I was 75kg again and decided I was going to get rid of it for good. As I lost weight and started toning up I decided I wanted to be more than just thin so started doing a body sculpting program.

    Here are the things I have learned:

    Pure weightloss = calories in vs calories out. If you eat more than you burn, you will not lose weight.
    Your body/weight etc is 90% made in the kitchen. If you do not eat properly, you will not get the results you desire.

    I have been doing this program for a year now which goes for 3 months at a time. The first 3 months and the last 3 months were the two I was very strict with my diet and the results of those two were the best. It has come to a point now where over a 3 day period of eating clean I can see a visual difference in the way my body looks. I can tell if I have not had enough water (I drink between 3-5L per day, 1 gallon = 4L).

    Eating clean doesn't necessarily mean missing out on the good stuff. People are amazed when they see my food. I have not added salt to anything in a year. I cook with ingredients that make the food taste salty. eg Olives, capers etc. People are also amazed when they see how much I eat. To give you an idea, I eat more (calories) than my partner. On the occasional off week, I still lose kg sometimes so then I adjust to eat even more. I watch my macros (carbs, protein and fat) and try to get as close as possible to them every day. It makes such a difference, although I wouldn't recommend the macro watching for people who are only trying to lose weight for now as it is too complicated. I don't pay much attention to the scales anymore because I weigh more now than what I wanted to but my body is far leaner and smaller. So I judge by my clothes and how I look and feel.

    My program consists of 5 days a week of weights training (with some HIIT on 1 of those days as well as some longer duration cardio on 2 other days during the cutting phase) and 1 super session which is a combination of weights and cardio. I even run my own saturday morning outdoor bootcamp type group where women (and a few blokes) come and I train them (while I'm doing my super session of course).

    I'm always up for a challenge so have been doing fun runs for the last year too. This time last year I couldn't even run 2 mins without stopping, and now (even without doing any cardio, just weight training) I can. A few weeks ago I did a 10km fun run in 63 mins. This sunday we have the annual city 2 surf which is 14km. I'm also doing a 100km bike ride in November for MS.

    Good luck to everyone! I find stories from other people pretty inspiring so please post yours

    Just to throw a spanner in the works, im trying to put weight (muscle) on. Im just under 12st at the minute but I want to get back up to 13st (muscle) I train 5 times a week, every week day. weights 3 times a week followed by HIIT running, then two cardio sessions followed by boxing. I know losing weight is hard, putting on good weight is also hard as well. Body fat percentage is about 11-12% at the minute but I want 8-10%.

    It is easy to snack away but I buy healthy boring snacks like cherry tomatoes, nuts and chicken. Doing loads of exercise etc is no good if you just go and eat a load of junk food. Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym. I've also swapped my weekend beer to a more sophisticated G&T

    Nothing wrong with bulking up mate, did it myself when I was about 21-22, when I weighed just over 10st

    did really well but as age crept up ( and I gave up smoking) so did the weight

    you tried kettlebell training? that don't half batter you, great HIT training

    I think it's great that this fitness group has started here - always been into exercise and fitness. Keep it up!! It does become harder once injuries hold you back - and therefore I have to pay more attention to the types of foods I eat. I think getting in cardio each day is important to eating healthy.

    Last year I gave up smoking which put on a few pounds then in September I ripped my knee tendons and wasn't able to walk very far for about 4 months.

    Overall I went up about 10lbs last year to 15st 11lbs which was just too much for me to feel comfortable.

    This year I've been eating more healthily and counting the calories. Although don't exercise much I'm fairly active and have managed to lose 3st in the past 6 months or so. Feel much better at 12st 11lb than where I was and so long as I can keep it under 13st, I'll be happy.

    I am at 200, I was at 250 over a decade ago. About five years ago I was training for taekwondo tournaments and got down to 160, that is my lowest. That was 3 hrs of training daily with a strict diet.
