Iíve struggled with my weight for most of my life. My highest weight was 292 pounds around 2011. I got down to about 245 by exercising and eating better but that all went out the window when I moved to Las Vegas for 6 months in 2013/2014. By late 2014 I was back up to about 270 and after WSOP 2015 I was about 284 again. I stayed above 270 for the next 18 months or so before finally slowly losing the weight during 2017. I got down as low as 214 after my trip to Asia for 3+ months in 2018. From there I put a little bit of weight back on but kept steady until last October. Since last October Iíve put on over 25 pounds and I currently sit at 251 pounds. (I think this timeline makes sense)

My goal is not to lose a certain amount in a certain amount of time but just to exercise and eat healthy. The weight will start coming off if I hold to that plan. At my size I think itís very realistic that I can be down to around 200 pounds by the new year. (Iím only 5 Ď10) I have a friend who is a gym rat that will be on my ass everyday to stay on his workout plan and I thought it would help me if I was accountable to this thread. I plan on posting weekly updates on how itís going.

The poll question is basically how much do you think I will lose or gain by January 1, 2020.

I wish you well PG. I think you can get back to 220, but cracking 200 will be a challenge without the intense amount of walking in the jungle heat you did in Asia. As the winter months come to Canada, how will you keep the intensity of the exercise up and avoid the poor food choices available at the poker room?

As a geezer, I'm not much for pop internet abbreviations, so I had to look this one up.

Too Long. Didn't Read.

Frequently used acronym by lazy, ignorant people in Internet Forums, where their urge to type something exceeds their ability to read something or if they generally lack semantic ability to either comprehend or respond to a post due to underdeveloped brain.

I second that emotion. All I know
for sure now is as you get past 50
weight loss is twice as hard and
gaining is twice as easy.

I voted "lose 20 pounds." I expect you'll lose more but gain some of it back over the holidays. And you did make Jan 1 your weigh-in day, a date that maximizes the weight gain of the holidays!
