A good freind of min just did that . . . he's been overweight as long as I've known him, bouncing between big and bigger for years.
Last year, he got serious about his health (being in throwing distance of 50 does that, I hear) and he cut soda, started watching what he ate, and began a daily waling regimen, using an iPhone ap to plot walking courses near work and home and then goiing for long walks while listening to various podcasts.
The result: in the space of a year, he lost 120 pounds. He exceeded his goal by 10 pounds, and is actually eyeing trying to go further and actual be in a shape some would call thin for the first time in his life.
A lot of work, and I'm proud of him for his accomplishment.
So it is do-able, for everyone looking to make that commitment.
