Nice.. so I'm about at what you were at. 175 is my ultimate goal. I limit my calorie intake but actually counting them is the hard part! Especially dinner, which my wife cooks. Congrats on your success.

Thank you! The hardest part for me was not seeing significant change at first. After that soaked in, I just kinda got used to the change in eating.

Definitely keep on with it, as jkwest said, you're kicking ass.

Yesterday I downed another 3/4 gal of water (having a 1/2 gal bottle helps). Ate three chebureyki for breakfast.. a sandwich (avocado with swiss cheese and mushrooms) and some soup (leftovers) and a tomato for lunch. BBQ chicken and a baked potatoe (just pepper and sour cream) for dinner. A cup of green tea before bed.

Did some free shooting on the basketball court and walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill. Did 10 push-ups (funny.. I tried doing push-ups when I woke up but could barely do 3).

I think today I am going to take a break.. kind of tired and my body needs recovery. Next week on Monday I start spreading my workout throughout day.. cardio in the morning before work, strength training after work.

I'm overweight, plain and simple. Short and round.

Been watching what I eat the few weeks (started early March) and practicing "portion control" a lot more, not even calorie counting, and working out on my Wii Fit for a half hour every day (cardio exercises -- jogging, stepping and boxing).

Before I went to Vegas over the weekend ( ) I had lost 8 pounds over a 3 week period. It would have been more, but I cheated quite a bit.

Still, even so, that's a goodly number of pounds. Trying to get back in the groove now (after vacation) and see where I wind up at the end of the month.

Very nice. Congrats on your current progress.

I was thinking of getting a Wii, the local store here has one with Wii Sports for $250. I like the whole billiards/tennis/bowling/boxing thing. It looks like a lot of fun.

I'm on the other end. I've weighed 145 since the eighth grade. I eat well but still look like a stick. Funny most people would love to lose 10 pounds, I'd love to put 10 on.

Drink a gallon of milk every day for a month. You'll put on a nice 20 lbs. I read that this is good for skinny guys that want some meat on their bones.

Didn’t read the whole thread, just skimmed your first post, so this may have been suggested before, but I noticed you said you are doing 30 minutes cardio then resistance training. I’d recommended trying the reverse, warming up with light cardio for just like 5-10 minutes, then doing some medium resistance training with very short rest between sets (like 1 minute), then after you’re done with your lifting routine, do the cardio. Your heart rate will reach your target zone much faster and you’ll burn a lot more calories.

Good job to all on here that are trying. This stuff is really a challenge. I would know because about 3 years ago I weighed in at around 310 (I'm 5'10"). Well, I'm happy to say that I'm now down to about 185 and I've sustained it for over a year now! I'm incredibly active and athletic now as well, without being a total fanatic (close though sometimes).

I achieved the majority of my success by simply maintaining a very low-calorie daily intake, and TONS of exercise (5-6 days a week). I definitely splurge from time to time these days, but I always try and make up for it when I do. I also drink alcohol pretty much whenever I want and it hasn't been a problem for me as long as I stay active. I'm sure my metabolism has changed substantially at this point, but I don't test it too much after doing all of this work. Oh, and no joke: the Subway diet (for lunch on the go at least) really works. There's no better fast food for weight management by a long shot.

Anyways, thought I'd share and I've loved reading about others successes and aspirations. Keep it up! It's hard but you can do it if you want it bad enough.

Concurred. Completely. I always hit cardio after weights. I don't buy into the short cardio warm-up before you lift, but that's more of a "different strokes for different folks" thing. I personally would rather see a person warm-up the muscles that he/she will be training that day. I understand the whole aspect of getting the blood pumping and all that before lifting, though.

But yeah, doing cardio after weights is by far and away the way that's treated me best over the years.

Have you taken supplements before? I've taken Lipo-6X, and it seemed to give me a boost while at the gym. I also take a multivitamin, fish oil, and B12 every day after lunch.

I go through periods where I'll go with supplements, but for the most part I take nothing more than a basic multi-vitamin. I did the creatine thing back in the late 1990s, when that was just becoming popular. I only took it for about a week, though, as it tore up my guts and just didn't make me feel well outside of the gym. I could sense that it was good for muscle growth, but I couldn't hang with it because it just made me feel like crap. Now I just do everything as naturally as possible, although it could be argued that coffee isn't natural, especially some of that stuff that comes from Colombia.

Congrats.. I went through that almost two years ago. I still want to smoke every now and again. I don't think it'll ever go away.

Well, I've started this new thing where I hit the gym twice a day (although I might cut a day out of the week for a complete rest day). Here's my routine.

4:30 - wake up
5:00 - take two capsules of Lipo-6x
5:30 - arrive at gym, stretch, do light resistence training to get heart pumping.
6:00 - begin cardio, treadmill for 30 mins. and bike for 10-15. Cooldown with basketball. Hit the shower.
7:00 - go to work
8:00 - eat breakfast with 2 green tea pills
10:30 - take two capsules of Lipo-6x
11:30 - lunch - multivitamin, B12, fish oil, 2 green tea pills
3:30 - get off work, hit the gym. Spend an hour or so doing intense strength training, cooldown with 15 mins of cardio. Hit the shower.

The strength training will be every other day for me, and I only work out parts of my body at a time. Yesterday I did 3-4 sets of 10 reps of lateral bench press, incline bench press, crunches, tricep exercises.. (researching bodybuilding.com helps) Today I feel sore.

Been drinking more water and it seems to be helping A LOT. I'm still at 245 but I don't think that'll change with the weight training... my questions are 1) should I be drinking a protein shake post-workout? I read on the container that people looking to lose weight probably shouldn't have one. But I think it'd help with recovery and build.. 2) Am I going to plateau really fast going intense like this early on in the game? I gained 50 lbs in 6 months.. and I heard it's easy to lose newly acquired fat so perhaps not?

I recently began working out. I am Active Duty AF, so I have to run more often, but I have never been in the gym. So I started working with a personal trainer and he had me change some things about my eating...
Like several others have said, no fast foods, I'll add fried and processed to that as well. He said if you do eat that stuff, do it in moderation.

He said stay away from sodas and drink lots of water. He said even diet soda isn't good because it acts as a hunger stimulant and water is a suppressant. I was a big coke zero drinker. Normally 3 or 4 a day.

Next, he had me find the number of calories that I needed to take in. The easy way to do that is your Body Weight x 11 (or 10 if your a girl). Then try to eat that many calories daily. This is the amount your body needs.

He says that weight loss is 80 to 90 % in the kitchen. The other is exercise. I have continued running, but I have added his workout routine 3 times a week and have dropped roughly 10lbs in about 6 weeks.

no to the protein shake...

you need to lose the weight before you start building muscle..otherwise it will be even harder to drop the fat.

thats a great schedule...so...are you saying your lunch is the "multivitamin, B12, fish oil, 2 green tea pills"? if so...you need to watch the workout in the afternoon...you may send your body into a shock with such a change in your day-to-day life.

This is a great thread! My best excercise regiment includes the PS3.. I get on a recumbent bike, throw in COD W@W or KZ2, really anything. Then start pedaling and playing. I go about 45 minutes without even realizing it. Seriously the best workout partner I ever had

As for the rest of my workout process, I do the cardio/ps3 thing 6 days a week for 35-45 minutes. I also workout with bowflex and free weights 3 times a week for about 40 minutes at a click. when I do weights and cardio, I do my Weights in the morning before I go to work and do the cardio within half an hour of coming home from work. I take Saturdays off to recover.

My diet. Breakfast consists of a glass of apple or orange juice, a bowl of cereal or an egg white omelet with diced tomatoes and a small pinch of shredded cheddar.

Lunch ususally involves turkey or chicken sandwich with a slice of swiss or american on whole wheat with a small amount of lite mayo and mustard, one small bag (vending machine size) of baked lays, and ONE regular soda. I used to drink 3 or 4 a day and now just have one 12 ounce can for lunch to kill the
craving.

for snack in between lunch and dinner I usually have a 12 oz can of V8 or a piece of fruit.

for dinner it's no carbs at all. I have a turkey burger without the bun, condiments etc or some chicken breast, or if I really want a treat I'll get some buffalo wings. I do this usually every two weeks on a friday or saturday night. And I drink nothing but water the whole day other than my one lunchtime soda.

I cheat sometimes when I go out with friends and especially when i'm on vacation but always keep the portions normal and don't cheat more than once a week. it's all about portion control and excercise for me.

I'm 6 ft tall started out at 310 lbs about 3 years ago when I started this life change and lost 70 lbs in that first year. since then I have lost an additional 20 pounds and been able to maintain my weight with the exception of when I go on vacation when I usually gain 5 -10 lbs over 2 weeks at the annual beach vacation, but always lose it within a month of coming back. good luck to everyone trying!
