I have been reading the forums for a few weeks and learning a lot from you all. Great site.
I'm 6'2" and 33 years old. About 5 1/2 months ago I was 305lbs and an alcoholic. I quit drinking and started to lose weight without changing my diet. I got excited and started eating healthy and walking several miles most days to keep the weight comming off. I'm now at 248lbs and around 31% body fat. About 2 1/2 moths ago I started with just milatary presses and curls because they were about all I knew how to do with my one curl bar. The other day I joined a gym to have access to more equiptment.
I expect to be down to around 200lbs in June or July. I'm excited about lifting weights and repairing my body from years of abuse, but I'm patient. Would you all recomend just concentraiting on the weight loss for now or should I start lifting more weights?
Just to be very clear , I am patient and am more concerned with long term inprovment. If I will be beter off in two years because I wiated to lift thats fine with me.
Thanks in advance for any help.
