    I'm feeling proud, i still have a long way to go (Goal is around 170 pounds), but now i'm finally at 198, down from 275 pounds after 1 year and 5 months of completely changing my eating habits, not just dieting, because i knew a diet would be a temporary thing. I don't even know if i should be posting this here, so feel free to delete my thread, i just really wanted to share this with someone.

    By the way: Sorry for my english.
    It took discipline, but it was simple, all i did (and still do) was watch my calories taken, eating a good amount of proteins, carb, fats, fibers, etc. Its frighteningly easy to eat 1500 in a couple minutes, so there's nowhere to run, you gotta watch what you eat. I didn't do much exercise, but occasionally i would do 1-2 hours of cardio if i wanted to eat more. My goal was to eat around 1700 calories every day, i would be lying if i said i was perfect every single day, but even when i wasn't, i didn't do anything crazy like eating only 1000 calories the next day, i just went back to my plan.

    Remember, it's calories in vs calories out. That's it, no secret. It's good to watch your macros, esp if you are lifting/cutting.

    There were times where i just wanted to give in (And i did, sometimes), but then i stopped and pondered about my future, about how many people i know that died young due to obesity. I don't want that for me. I want to be able to live long, and healthy, i don't want to be one of these old people that have to take tons of medicine, go to hospitals every week because of bad conditions, illness. That's what motivated me. Today i can happily say that i'm a changed man, i no longer desire to binge junk food, not even soda (actually i stopped with soda 5 years ago, mainly because i don't enjoy it lol).

    Remember, you can eat anything, just don't overdo it.
