So i'm new to these forums, but it looks like a great place to post my situation and hopefully I can get some good solid avdice here.
Currently i'm far too overweight, i'm 19 stone 6lbs (272lbs) and a little under 6ft tall. I'm 30 years old.
I'm not afraid to show my body here, as I will be changing it over time I just want you guys to see just how overweight I am. Also I would like it to serve as a good before and after pic. Pics are attachments at the bottom of my post.
I really dont like my body how it is at the moment, my bum and stomach area are the worst as you can see.
The pics ware taken when I was actually a bit lighter at 262lbs around 10 months ago, I started to diet and then failed.
I want to know if i'm doing things right, here is an explaination of how I currently am working on loosing the fat;
I work 5 days a week mon-fri, I walk to work which takes around 20 minutes each way 40 minutes total there and back. I work as a cleaner part time for 1.5 hours mon-fri, so i'm moving about for 1.5 hours a day plus the walking.
Before I started my diet and the reason I became so fat, was due to eating the usual crap such as chocolate, takeaways, pizza etc etc.
Here is what I eat now in a typical day:
I drink 2-3 pints of water a day
Breakfast - Cereal, I have Kellogs Bran flakes with skimmed milk or special K, and a muller vitality pre and pro biotic yoghat drink, also I have some goji berries (good antitoxidant)
Lunch - Usually 2 eggs, granary bread and low fat butter or a ham and leittuice sandwich or low salt and sugar beans on toast
Dinner - Whatever my girlfriend tends to cook me, usually chicken, veg and chips or something along those lines, I try to keep it as healthy as possible but I would like to know what Dinners I could eat that are good. Sometimes I will just have low sugar and salt beans on granary toast.
I also have vitamin supplements, I take 1000mg vitamin c, a vitamin b complex, potassium, magnesium and lately i've also added a 'superfood' acai berry supplements which are supposed to be very good for antitoxidans and for to promote weight loss.
So my question is this, how's my diet and exercise for my weight and what should I change, if anything? I'm far too overweight and I want to get down to at least 16 stone (my first goal). I dont want to overdo it as I tend to feel faint quite easy exercising too much or not eating enough so i'm looking for steady, gradual weight loss.
I stuck to this routine all last week and only managed to loose 1lb, which I was quite dissapointed at. Maybe i'm doing something wrong? I could incorporate weights but i'd only put more weight on right?
Advice would be appreciated
