I've attached a photo of me that I took right now .. I look gross. This is the primary motivation; to look better. I used to be @ 176 pounds about 10 years ago, and I'm 260 pounds now. Almost 100 pounds over 10 years. To get my girl back, I need to be 176pounds again, at the very least. No, it's not been 10 years since we broke up, it's been like 2 months.
So my question really is, how do I burn this fat and get ripped?
I absolutely *do not* want to widen or bulk up at all. In fact, I have to slim or lean down, my face and body look too wide.
I'm yellow-brown, and from a culture that traditionally has men weighing between 120-160 pounds. I'm 184cm (6 ft), and ideally want to be @ 150 pounds. Is this too low? I feel like the lean guys in my culture get way more girls than the bulky muscular ones. Of course, the lean ripped ones get the most.
I'm turning 25 in like 10 days, and my the time I'm 26, I want to somewhere near my goal.
SO! The question I have is -- Do I lift weights at all? Do I just do cardio? Do I do interval training? Again, the idea is to lean down and NOT bulk at all, I think I've got enough.
I remember doing just cardio was boring and I felt I was losing weight at a slower pace, as compared to a mix of cardio and weights, but then again I don't want to gain mass.
Any insights are appreciated.!
