Trip to Peru was fun.

Machu Picchu is a sight to behold.

You know how when you see beautiful breath taking environment views in your in game personas and go wow, that would be awesome to see IRL? It's just like that (except it is in person and not through a digital PoV).

He should be careful; it looks like that is going to spill at any moment. I try to keep my glasses upright.

What delicious libation is he partaking in?

Not the most demonstrative "Before and After" but I lost around 80 pounds. At 140 now (I am 5'6"). Went from 36 waist to 29. Shirt size large to small. Messy kitchen.

Nice! I dropped a bunch of weight a few years ago when I joined the Army. It's amazing how much better it feels, right?

Yeah I'm surrounded by fat people telling me I look unhealthy. It's magical.

That's great.

I have the advantage of working a physical job, on my feet for 8-11 hours a day, moving for all of it, and doing some level of exercise (scrubbing, wiping, pushing, pulling, lifting, dropping, climbing, crouching, sweeping, mopping, pulling weeds, shoveling snow, whatever) for the vast majority of it. All I had to do was start eating right, and I eat the same things (or selection from a set of staples) every day.

Cod, chicken, a balance of whole eggs and egg whites, lots of vegetables, whole grains, tons and tons of water, skim cottage cheese and greek yogurt, almonds when I want them. I eat fresh spinach all the time. I use it raw in salads and wraps, I steambake it in a tin foil packet with spiced cod for dinner, whatever (then I mix that in with lentils and brown rice, peppers, onions, jalapenos and asparagus and spices and hoooomnomnomn). I make everything delicious and I keep food ready to go so I never get hungry and make poor decisions, I snack on the skim cottage cheese (try it with cinnamon and a shredded wheat biscuit) or plain greek yogurt (mash in a few blueberries), I indulge in fresh tomatoes (slice and dash some basil on there) and regular dill pickle spears.

I keep produce chopped and set in bins ready to go, I keep three days of fish thawed out, I cook lentils ahead of time and store a few days worth since they take longer than rice, all that shit, having everything ready to go is so valuable. I drink water non-stop at home too, along with green tea once or twice a day. I guzzle black coffee at work though.

Control portions, eat regularly, keep a schedule, and most importantly be honest with yourself. You know what's right and wrong, what works for you and what doesn't, and the more progress you make the less satisfying the temptations will become anyway. I mainly avoid too much sugar, with the plain yogurt being the main exception. This has the sad effect of meaning I don't get to enjoy much fruit. I also drink alcohol only once a month or less.

Obviously I avoid most fat as well, and less than 20% of my fatcalories are saturated (low single digits), the rest are poly/mono, which most sources seem to agree can be useful if you are active and eat a balanced diet. That said, my fat intake is pretty low, even now. Protein and carbs are about even with one another and most of the carbs come from whole grains and vegetables. As a side note, changing my eating habits from "Starve all day then eat a whole pizza" to what they are now has removed all aches and pains I had from work and getting old, particularly my right wrist/thumb which was crippled by tenosynovitis. I'm stronger than ever.

You are a fucking dragon.

My tricks were:

In regards to food: absolutely no soda, minimal candy/snacks, and moderation in everything else. There was no way I was cutting out pizza, beer, and cheese!

For exercise and activity; just move around a little more. Go for a walk, jog, do some sit ups, ANYTHING will help.

Went back to NYC. Went to Phantom again, got DISASTROUSLY shitfaced before, during, and after. I may or may not have touched the chandelier as it was being put back up between acts. I may or may not have loudly yelled "Hail Satan!" at the Phantom as he took his bow, from seven feet away.
