I'm Brian. 27 year old male. Married 4 years and a father of 3 (Life's been busy these last few years). Since meeting my wife I have steadily gained 10 lbs a year since we have been together. 7 years 70 lbs! I recently started trying to lose weight (within the last week) and have lost 7 lbs ( For me the first 15 usually happen relatively easy then I get lazy and give up).
In highschool I wrestled and had to cut insane amounts of weight and was very unhealthy at doing such. I would drop 45 lbs in 2 months and then keep it off for 2-3 months until wrestling season was over and then I would steadily start to gain again in preparation for football. It seems this really did a number on my metabolism and I have paid for it ever since.
I really enjoy walking but can't bring myself (or my lungs) to run. I have started trying to do 30 push ups a day broken into 3 sets of 10. This is killing me being so out of shape. The former athlete in me is screaming!
I'm looking for a small group of men and women that will help me reach my 70 total pound loss goal by Dec 31st. 70 lbs in a year if done the right way isn't to unreasonable of a goal I wouldn't say.
I'm 6'0 and weight 275.2 (set my goal when I weighted 282.2). I carry a large majority of my weight right center in the front of my stomach making me look bloated and like I have a big beer belly even though I don't drink beer except once a month or so.

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
