So a few people have reached out to me asking what I'm currently doing that is giving me results. As of this morning, I am 258 Pounds.
I'm not a health expert but I have done a lot of reading, and know my own body.  So here are a few things I am currently doing to help my weight loss.  Keep in mind I am bigger so I will see faster losses than someone who is smaller.

    A Change In Mindset

    One of the things I've read which strikes as possibly the greatest thing I've heard about getting healthy is your mindset.

    I am facing this not as a diet, because diets are temporary, but instead as a change in lifestyle.  I don't want temporary changes.  I want a more permanent healthy life.

    Eat Regularly

    I am absolutely horrible about this.  One of the meals I skip most often before I started was breakfast.  To get around that I just make myself a protein shake right away in the morning.  It is not the best but it works for me and my lifestyle.

    For lunch I actually have to set an alarm to remind myself. Then right away in the afternoon I eat something when I get home and then maybe a small snack prior to 6:00 PM.

    Don't Eat After 6

    I have had heartburn for years, so I naturally didn't eat within a couple hours of bedtime.  However, I read that it is better for you if you set a time in the evening and choose not to eat after that time.  I made 6:00 PM my time.  If I really am hungry I have a handful of almonds.

    Drink Plenty Of Water

    I have a huge 64 ounce jug of water at home, and one at work.  I typically drink 2-3 of those jugs a day.  Yes I have to run to the restroom every 20 minutes or so but it helps me digest easier.

    Don't Think Cheat

    I am being very restrictive about what I eat.  However, that doesn't mean I don't go and have a meal out occasionally.  I don't think of it as cheating.  I also don't reward myself either.  Then I would get on the slippery slope of "Hey I stretched! Time to eat a brownie.".

    I just control my portions.

    Set A Definite Real Goal

    I set a higher goal than most would of 4 pounds per week over the course of 5 weeks.  It is a tough goal but since I am bigger it is achievable.  I want to be able to achieve my goal and not give up hope if I don't hit a ludicrous I set.

    Weigh Myself At Same Time Of Day

    I've known for awhile that my weight fluctuates regularly throughout the day.  So, I don't step on the scale more than once per day.  Some fitness experts even suggest only doing it once per week.

    I am tracking my loss more closely, so every morning as soon as I wake up I mark my weight.

    Work Out

    This is probably the bane of my existence right now.  Because of the nature of my job, having a set workout schedule is very hard.  So I go when I can.  This is usually about 3 times per week for me and I do some cardio 20 Minutes bike, and some moderate lifting.

    Prepare Meals

    So I am not tempted to just grab something at a fast food place, I prepare my meals ahead of time.  I found these bags of frozen diced chicken that you can dole out portions and reseal the bag.  I put some in a bowl in microwave, nuke it, and add some lettuce.  Typically my lunch is a chicken salad with a little Ranch dressing.

    Stay Positive

    I don't have to go to the gym.  I get to go to the gym.  I don't have to eat my chicken salad (or healthy meal), I get to.
