After he said that, I knew he was right, and I did relentless exercise and dieting to get it off. Went on a low carb, low cal, low fat diet. All veggies, all the time, no meat, no fat. Rode my bike 3000 feet elevation up and down every day. Ran up to 5 miles a day. I got the weight off, but I got severe depression. Eventually it all came back because my diet went back to normal and the exercise stopped working.
This time around, lots of fat, plenty of calories, plenty of meat, much less exercise but still plenty since I like it, I have no depression, I've gotten the weight off and I feel great. This diet is way more effective, satisfying and health-restoring. You are going to succeed this time around.
