80 lb weight loss

I maintained my weight loss 
from Nov to July 5/2007
with 1500 calorie diet and 2 hour day exercise

In Dec 2007 I found it impossible to get below 200 pounds with 1500 calorie diet and 2 hours exercise a day.  

I decided I needed to eat more and build up muscle to build up metabolism.  I had not formulated the Sponge Syndrome yet.

My first big weight loss was in 1988.  
I went from 245 pounds to 208 pounds. 
I attended Overeaters Anonymous Meetings.
I went to Nautilus weights 3 times a week and jogged daily while on 1,000 calories.  I stayed at this weight for a few months but the deprivation was too much and I quickly went up to 220 pounds.
