Hi everyone, I will be posting my fat loss and overall life progress in this thread.
I was sexually molested as a child and gained and retained a good deal of weight throughout my life mostly as a result of being depressed. I realize that now and am tired of letting it control my life. I started out at 6'0" 365lbs a few years ago and I have been hovering around 300lbs for just over a year now. Well, I'm tired of this and I'm going to lose the rest of my weight, finish school, and apply to OTS for a pilot slot before I am too old to do so. It's always been one of my dreams, and for the first time in my life, I'm going to chase one of my dreams.
I have to accomplish the following in order to be ready for OTS:
*Get down to an acceptable body fat percentage and weight to qualify for a pilot slot.
*Pay for and receive PRK or Lasik eye surgery.
*Pay for and receive a decent amount of dental work.
*Finish off my degree in mathematics before I am turn 28.
I am currently 25 years old and will be turning 26 this May.
I will be doing cardio 7 days a week and lifting 4 days a week. My cardio consists mostly of walking for 45 minutes, but I began throwing in one-minute running sessions here and there yesterday.
My starting stats, according to my scale, are as follows:
Weight = 306.6lbs
bf% = 45.7%
bmi = 41.5
I did a few calculations and my LBM is approximately 166.5, so I will be eating at least 170g of protein a day and I will be eating around 2400 calories a day until I get down a bit more in weight.
I'm going to do this for my fiance, my family that loves me so much, and for the first time in my life, I'm going to do this for myself. This is my dream and nothing is going to stand in the way of it.
Any suggestions, help, tips, pats on the back, or kicks in the ass are more than appreciated.
