I'm Matt and I'm almost 40 years old. There are a number of things in my life that make me unhappy. I let people run all over me, I don't put myself out and be more social, I don't have the energy to do everything I need to do. These all stem from the fact that I am fat. I've been fat almost my whole life. There have been a few periods where I have lost it for a time period but not all the way and not for long. I am about 6' and weigh 270 lbs. Because I am fat I let people including my wife run all over me. I do exercise. I am a member of one of those gyms where they combine weight lifting and cardio in a class. For my size, I do ok. I can run a mile in about 9:30. For me this is all about eating. I eat when I get bored, eat when I'm stressed, I eat just because I have a hard task at work. I have tried keto diet before. It did work, but it was kind of annoying to always need to prepare special food. I'm not sure if it will work again. I'm looking for brainstorming ideas that can help me get my weight under control. Realistically I'd like to get to 189 lbs. I would be very happy if I can get to 215 lbs. I may need to set a more immediate goal to stay on track. I'm brainstorming for ideas.
