Default Weight loss disc golf

Ok I just know this can work. I have just been way to lazy lately. I am a bit over 350 pounds, but I love disc golfing. Of course with my immense size it get quite challenging for me do accomplish some courses.

Now, I know with the proper eating habits and regular trips to the local course I could achieve my weight loss goals and get even better at disc golf.

I like to relate disc golf as a sport where you are exercising without even thinking of it as exercise.

I wanted to hear if anyone has had success with incorporating disc golf in to their weight loss routine and if so what was your routine.

I have a friend that lost 40 pounds in about a year by playing and eating right. He also worked on the course about 10 hours a week.

I lost about 100 pounds over 14-15 months with disc golf being the main form of exercise I was doing.

There really is no secret. You just have to do it a lot. And have a decent diet too. That helps more than anything. Cut out the soda, junk food, most of the booze, it's not hard. But most people that I know have such terrible diets that they can't exercise enough to get rid of all the junk calories they are taking in every day.

edit: just for reference I am 6'2'' and went from 290 to 185ish.

I started playing a really long mountain course about 3 days a week in June. I'm down about 40 pounds since then...and 50 since I began eating healthier. Disc Golf played a role.

Disc golf is actually what inspired me to exercise at all. I wasn't doing any form of exercise at all a few years ago. Now, after playing a lot of dg and even practicing in the open field, I'm actually thinking about getting back out on the tennis court since I'm in a lot better shape, even if only 20-30 pounds lighter than before.
