Yeah I think you can do it, and by the sound of it, you are a pretty big guy (shoe size 13EEE
from your other post, and 365# currently...must be 6'6" - 6'8"), so 2.21# per week should be doable. You are right, the pounds will fall off in the first weeks/months, esp if you have a lot to lose, and if you cut a lot of the carbs and add protein. Just don't overdo the exercise in the first few weeks...it can kill you! Start out low and slow, and work up to it. If you have room for a stationary bike, it might be good to have one in front of the boob toob. Hop on for a 10-15 minutes every time you turn the TV on instead of plopping down in the recliner.
