I weigh more than ever after getting weighed a couple days ago: 256lbs. I think it's from the fact that I've started drinking regular coke, almost exclusively (drink water at night though). it's non-diet. now, I'm going to start drinking diet dr. pepper, and one coke a day. I like the taste of coke more probably though. I don't drink too much, maybe 2 or 3 pops a day. I only drink something with meals mostly, because I'm afraid of spilling something in my room.

I started going to my local bouldering gym 2-3 days a week about a year ago and while at first I had to push myself to go so often I've now really started looking forward to going every time :)
I've tried bouldering a few times and I've never really enjoyed myself. It doesn't really help that I don't really have any idea what I'm doing. Also one of the first times I went I managed to fall and hurt my back (possibly a dislocated rib). Plus the gym seems to be full of seasoned experts who are all in much better shape and vastly more talented than I am.

At least with weightlifting, everyone's pretty much doing the same thing but with different numbers. I've started to appreciate that simplicity.

try switching completely to diet based sodas. come a few months and you'll find the regular coke to be weird.
reducing carbs is also key. I've lost countless of lbs

I'm going to check in on the ymca to see if I can get in there to swim. I think they have an Olympic-size swimming pool. don't know if it costs money or if they have transportation. I heard that I can get free rides with Lyft, since I'm on Sooner Care, though. I can't afford too much, because I only get $529/month with over $200 of that going towards my phone bill and helping my mother.

Luckily everyone is different and can find something they personally enjoy. For me it's bouldering, but for you it might be a normal gym :)

Im underweight and have always been scared of gaining weight. Meanwhile my cousin isn't in a weight that corresponds to his age by a long shot, yet has never had any type of worry about his weight, hell, his parents aren't stopping him. I sometimes question if im in the wrong
I feel the cause in this case is his parents not really stopping him and his lack of physical activity

high glucose/high LDL(bad cholesterol) could also be medication related, most bi polar meds can cause both though my weight is also an issue (and no i can't lower my dosage if you seen my posts in the political sub forum I would be 1 million times worse the next dose down)

I've cut back to one non-diet pop a day. I've always been putting one pop in the fridge at a time so that I don't drink much. I can't drink a pop warm, and I don't like using ice with anything but water.

same ol', same ol' for the most part. not active really at all. I'm still only drinking one non-diet pop a day, so that's good, I guess.

Upbringing definitely has a lot to do with it. If your family enabled and encouraged eating lots of unhealthy foods growing up, and didn't do much often to keep you physically fit, then you'll naturally be facing a battle with being overweight. And while people argue that it simply comes down to genetics, they aren't entirely wrong, genetics can have a lot to say in your metabolism. However, crummy genetics alone does not ensure you'll be overweight. If you stick to a healthy diet and workout regularly, consistently throughout your life, you will not be overweight regardless of what your genes have to say.
