    Awesome job it feels good when all the hard work finally pays off. I am trying to get my weight down too. I am going start the 100 push up program today to increase my strength.

    I haven't started any strength work outs yet but, soon. I do allot of walking and cut out 95% of the foods that are bad.

    It seems like when you start to see results, you or I should say I, get allot more willpower cause I know, over the last month I almost lost it a few times.

    Then after I reach my goal I plan on then monitoring it and eating right. Hopefully I can stay at my goal weight...

    I have been a junk food junkie most of my life and it TOUGH to cut it out...

    congratulations. once you reach your target weight and start improving your strength and fitness, you will realize the amount of work it takes and will automatically start to avoid junk foods.

    I lost 60 pounds over a period of 3 years. I used to eat a lot of junk foods before, but now I cannot have them even if it is placed in front of me. Ofcourse, I do enjoy myself with icecream and stuff, but you tend to become more conscious and cautious...

    if you keep continuing on your present course, you dont have to worry about your eating habits. they will change for the better.
