First off I once weighed 280 for most of my teens. then from about 2005 to 2007 or so I was able to lose 40 pounds with mild activity and change in eating habits some some periodic on and off months of exercise. But ever since then I have never been about to drop that number any future. I noticed if I don't exercise it doesn't go back up. and if I do exercise it doesn't go down. Over the past few years since 2007 I have bulked up a bit and my arms and legs lack any track of their once obese weight. However I still have a slight tummy and a very slight shadow under my chin which really isn't all that attractive not that I let it wear on me mentally at all. until recently. Balding head started to look shitty so I shaved it. looks pretty good. but chin is a little more prominent now. and I simply feel it is time to slay my childhood demon once and for all.
So what advice do you all give to break through this 240 pound wall and get ride of the flab on these areas?
edit: also, I have thyroid problems and take meds for it.

Alright I lied I went back and read.
that said, You could afford to lose 80lbs. Just eat less. I eat 1600 calories a day right now while cutting and I can still afford to fit in a bigass cheeseburger + 170g of protein every day and stay within my macros.
k. any tips for staying away fro more than 1600?
as for that. yeah. I could lose ten pounds. I am not fat fat :) just a stomach. In all honesty i have no idea where 40 pounds is. I have seen that biggest loser show and those people look twice as fat as me but weight 20 pounds less.

Not eating as much? It's really fucking simple. Track what you eat, if it comes out to more than 1600 then cut down some more.
eh. it is not as easy for fat people :) mental tips. for staying away form food addiction.
I dunno. I don't have that problem. Not having food within arms reach helps.
quit being dumb and start thinking of food as nutrition with taste being a minor bonus
