In the spring of 1974, I was introduced to the man widely known as Nikoli Volkoff. A true mountain of a man, he was the first 300 pound man I ever met that was in top physical shape. A shade over 6'4, he then wrestled at an announced weight of 340.
It's relevant only because I cracked 340 at my weigh in today. It's the lightest I've been in years and was the last significant milestone before my target of 309.
When I moved here three years ago, My furniture didn't arrive for almost a month and I lived on buffets and Carl Jr's. and by the time my scale showed up, I was at 417.
At the time, getting down to 300ish seemed like a pipe dream, but I'm in striking distance. My diet has improved but still has plenty of upside left to it. As has my blood work. I'm fitting into my 46 pants, where I was wearing 54s in 2017

Congratulations on your achievement. I would have never guessed that you weighed that much.

What is your diet plan, if you don't mind saying?

I painted my front door...



If anyone will humor me, please leave a comment. Just wanna make sure...something.



In my Midwestern world, that would not be my front door. It appears to go from the garage to the kitchen. Front doors are for guests, welcome or not. But what do I know from upstate New York.

My mission is to eat less and exercise more. I cut my beer consumption to almost nothing, limit fast food and drink a lot of water. Roughly a third of my meals are Nutrisystem and I have 2-3 shakes a week as a meal replacement. Lots of little things- whole wheat pasta, ground turkey, having a salad with my pasta. I don't pretend to eat healthy, just healthier.

Congrats on the weight loss
I don't have a weight problem but I am getting older, 60, and listening to my DR
Meal kits are a life saver for me. Before meal kits, a lot of take out for me
I now use Hello Fresh and Plated depending on the offerings that week
I love them. Eating fresh healthy food cooked at home every night and its delicious.
I have been an Ice Cream lover my whole life. Always had it in the freezer. Daily evening snack and I ate a big bowl
Totally given it up. Doc was saying I was doing too much sugar and could become diabetic.
Doc also told me to limit purine foods. Don't have a gout problem and don't want one
Some of the foods I was told to limit surprised me such a spinach, asparagus and mushrooms.

Many older houses in the North East had front doors on porches that weren't all season. Over time, many were enclosed, and made into bedrooms or playroom. The front doors became most decorations. With snow and mud, using the side door is easier.

if that's a front door I think you might have some security issues with that lock. And a few privacy issues.
