About Me:

Robb here. Glad to meet you.

(CAPE COD, Massachusetts) I'm male, age 57, 5'10½" (70½ inches, 179 cm). Started seriously using MFP in early July 2014 at weight 298 pounds. I started using it in preparation for bariatric surgery. It worked very well. The surgery was canceled, I lost the weight without it. TOPS for support, walking/hiking for exercise. I love my new lighter life! Logging is the #1 thing that makes this work. It isn't even the calorie limit as much as it is the logging and better awareness. Awareness bring better control; Better control brings weight loss. You can do it!

July 2015 (365 Day Streak): 113 POUNDS LOST!! my first year of logging ... ... read the recap.

August 2018 -- Maintaining 110+ pounds lost by logging every day, staying fit by walking and hiking, and going to my TOPS meetings. Participating in /r/loseit on reddit!

May 2020 -- Kept it off for 5 years now!

Why I want to get in shape

My Diabetes Mellitus (Type 2 Diabetes) was getting out of control, and insulin and meds were hard to manage. Since losing more than 30 pounds, I'm off of the insulin and meds entirely and my blood sugar is normal.

My Inspirations

  • Staying off of diabetes meds and insulin
  • My daughters, who inherited "the gene" and the habits
  • I've thrown away all of my larger clothing
