    My Journey From 300 lbs

    Figured it was time for me to finally share some of my progress. A quick background of myself, pretty much have always been overweight. All throughout childhood I was the fat kid and never did anything about it. Once I hit 300+ lbs at around 19-20 years old I hit an all-time low. I had tried fad diets before and started plenty of work out plans just never could make any progress. I started with my diet by simply cutting portion sizes, which resulted in a small weight loss of about 15-20 lbs. Feeling some confidence finally I decided it was time for a real change. After moving across country and moving in with my brother who is lifting for numerous years he got me in a solid training program and helped me keep my nutrition on track. I have been sticking to this routine now for a little over a year. Right now I am 64 and 225 lbs, could I please get a BF % estimate? I am thinking around 20% or so. Next goal is to loose about 20 more lbs and then focus on a adding lean mass. Any comments and advice would be greatly appreciated. BB.com has been such a great community and all the information on here is so helpful. Thanks again

    Thank you. Hoping to get to about 15% BF before doing a slow lean bulk.

    Thanks everyone. I really appreciate it. I have really focused myself this past month and am determined on staying on the right path of hard training and clean eating.

    Great job! Your musculature looks a lot like mine; I've got a good 40lbs hiding most of it, but I can see strong similarities in size and build of your frame. So you're about 185 of LBM at 6'4 and I'm 165 at 6'0/1; that seems to make sense.

    You've made great progress, man, and I wish you success on the cut!
    Started 2012 at over 410lbs (that was as high as my scale went) and I ended the year at 260lbs.

    Still going strong while eating whatever I want - whenever I want; I just keep it to under 2000 calories a day.

    TEAM IIFYC (if it fits your calories)

    Thanks buddy that means so much. I feel like a got some solid mass hiding here. I'm eating at a 500 cal deficit right now about. Trying to preserve as much LBM while loosing fat. Once I finish up the current program I'm doing I was thinking of decreasing caloric intake some more.
