Hey Guys, I need a little bit of advice. I have become so out of shape that I can't stand it anymore. I'm ready to do something about it and I just need to know what the best thing for me to do is. A little bit of background. I've always been heavy for most of my life, but I actually got down to a pretty good weight a couple of years ago but I realize now that I did it in a really bad way. I starved myself for a little over a year and a half(not really intentionally...but I just really didn't eat much at all). I lost about 120lbs within that year and a half and was actually somewhat happy with my weight. Being that lower weight allowed me to wear clothes that I liked and actually look decent in them, it allowed me to get into skydiving for a little while, and I just felt better about myself. I also smoked a lot during this time, so that helped supress my appetite and made it easier. Now, with how heavy I am these days I try to hide behind bulky clothing to hide my man-boobs and gut, and I just can't stand it anymore. Anyways, I met my girlfriend and we started going out to eat alot, and then I quit smoking and good lord the weight came back in a hurry, and then some. I've heard that when you starve yourself like that, it royally screws your metabolism and that is partly the reason why the weight came back the way it did. I'm 6'3" and I'm at a very bad weight right now. I'm embarassed to even say what it is, but I'll just say that I'm a fatass. I need to do something about this, and any help that you guys have to offer would be greatly appreciated. What is the best thing that I can do that will shed this weight the fastest way possible? I've been getting so distraught about my weight that I've considered the starvation route again..but I really don't want to do that..there has to be a better way that won't make me gain weight like crazy when I start eating normally again.
