I would like to drop about 15-20 pounds in the new year so if anyone has any secrets let me know. I assume that wine needs to be cut out at least in the early going to get the weight down. Still researching my options...

Mad This always happens. I start losing weight right before vacation. Then go on vacation and gain 5-10 lbs.

Bravo to many of you!
About 15 months ago I tipped the scales at around 245. Since then I have been as low as 215, but my wedding ring was beginning to easily slip off (wife not pleased). Almost lost it in a Finger Lake one day and again during a night playing B-ball at the gym (mens 25 and over league, thank you). Bouncing between 220 and a deuce and a quarter now but feeling a bit heavy during these Holidays filled with so many seasonal temptations. Tonight, slightly guilty as I finish off a 1/2 pint of Haagan Dazs, but F it. I'll run tomorrow and feel better. Been able to do 3 - 4.5 miles a few times a week for most weeks this year and can keep the weight from coming back. Knees starting to hurt though. Getting older. Boo.

I guess the bottom line is: eat less exercise more. I have actually cut my wine/alcohol intake way back this year. It may in fact have reached a record post adolescence low.

But at least on the first day, your Speedo banana hammock will fit better!

Join a running club and participate in their marathon training program. Not everyone who runs long distance weights 100 lbs. One of the guys in our group used to be far north of 200 lbs and is now a Boston Marathon qualifier (and south of 200 lbs). Best part is that you don't have to starve yourself.

I got started with the wife New Years Day (not a resolution but were procrastinating until after the holidays) on a fairly stringent exercise and nutrition plan so I plan to track progress weekly and plan to drop close to 20 within the first quarter of 2013. Nothing major really, just counting calories (iPhone makes this easy to do) and doing routine exercise.

Battling placer fasciitis for last 3 months which has dampened my ability to run. I've been mountain biking instead.

Dropped the +4 the holidays brought so back to the original -16. Now just need to keep the trend line headed in that direction...
