    Hello, Buteo Here
    ButeoFerrous posted:
    Hello, you can call me Buteo. I posted on the 50 - 100 community, before I realized this one was here. I am currently 298 lbs, 5'9" tall. I am 27 years old. My long term goal is to get to 170, my short term goal is to get to 290.
    I have health problems besides my weight, and am in pain most of the time.
    I have been using the food and fitness planner for a week now. It helps a lot, and I have lost 2 lbs this past week. My goal is 1 lb a week. Nice and slow.
    I look forward to meeting new people and getting tips from everyone, maybe I'll have one or two to share.

    Hi Lefty,

    This board isn't very active unlike the 50-100 lb. board. Hope you are doing well on your plan.
