    Compy's got fat again.

    This time 2 years ago i had hit my all-time lowest weight of 270 after weighing 450 the year before that.

    So I did the thing. I gained a lot of it back in 2 years. I've been struggling for the past 6 months, yo-yoing like crazy. On my honeymoon back in June 2016 I was mad about weighing 340. But what did it matter? I lost 180 lbs...I could easily lose the 50 I needed in no time! And that's how it happened...

    When I got back and moved to Dallas and started a new job I ballooned up to 375 (after Thanksgiving), then I got back down to 360, now back up to 375...and I am humbled and afraid. I seriously don't know how I did it.

    Now I am a big guy and I can train hard. I worked out for 4 hours two days ago (since I had the day off).

    I keep trying to recreate the magic of my awesome year and failing and I don't know why. I was admired by everyone and I was sexy for the first time in my life and now I'm a fat blob again struggling to fit into clothes.

    I have lots of excuses, but I've made this thread to log stuff. I think I'm afraid of eating and I keep trying to do hours and hours of cardio.

    Well, no more. I'm going to shoot for 3000 calories a day. I am going to train 5 days a week. All lifting and HIIT (I've been jumping rope and enjoy it). I am going to eat chicken and rice and broccoli. If I'm hungry I will eat more chicken and rice and broccoli.

    Since my job is fairly active (on my feet all day) if I need more calories I will eat them. All in an effort to stop binging. If the calorie calculators are true then my TDEE with "3-5 hours of light exercise" is 3700 to maintain, so I will be shooting for 3000 and exercising strenuously.

    I have a new baby coming in July and my goal is to be 330 then, and then under 300 in 2017. Honestly though I'll just be happy to go in the right direction again.

    So merry Christmas everyone. I'll be logging on here in the future. Hopefully this will help me succeed. Again.

    Yesterday did ok I think. I did some jump rope for 11 minutes. I do 8 sets of 30sec with 1:30 rest in between.

    I did a small workout with my power blocks for chest.

    Then the family came over. I ate some ham and some nuts and I did eat a piece of pie.

    Weight: 370.8

    Down 5 lbs since Thanksgiving. Still....I can gain/lose like 8 lbs in a day from water and whatnot.

    About to go do some deadlift and maybe 30 min on an elliptical.

    12/26 food

    Today was great. I did not get a super accurate calorie count, but I am estimating around 2500-3000.

    More importantly, though I've discovered what I think will help me do this thing. I trained fasted (I prefer it - always have) then I came home and ate 1000 calories of lean beef and brown rice. It kept me even all day. Later I had a granola bar and some beef jerky (best gas station food for traveling) and then had some more beef for dinner with vegetables. I did have two small glasses of low-fat egg nog (which is actually better than high fat in my opinion) With about 3 shots of whiskey.

    Not ideal of course, but I passed on the pie.

    I also took the time to read over some of my old thread http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=163377891
    I had such great success. I miss it and I want it back. Today felt really good and I feel like a million bucks. I need to stop being so hard on myself because it only leads to stupid restriction And then inevitable binging. Kurerensu if you're out there - you were right. I needed to have more modest goals and fix my relationship with food. I never did - I was just so angry that I was able to blunt-force my way throug huge deficits.

    I still look like a fat guy but I felt today like my fit self again. Looking forward to the future.

    What did you suspect?

    @KRANE Because what I think you are trying to do is give me **** for being a fat ass loser who lost it and ate 1000 calories which seems, to you, a ridiculous number.

    If you had read my original post, then you would know that im trying to eat 3000 after a long history of restricting too much. Instead, you came in with some very helpful advice "you are what you eat" with a link to some misc. thread.

    Thanks!

    I'm not your sister. eating 3k is my goal. Please stop giving me advice.

    Part of the problem for me are dudes like you who don't know me telling me what acceptable caloric intake is. You don't know me. You don't know my LBM or how I train. Why are you in this thread if you're just here to talk ****?

    I will lose 100lbs. AGAIN. And the reason I will keep it off this time is that I will fix my relationship with food by eating more. So scoff all you want - I will lose eating 2.5-3k calls at day.

    I'm so glad you popped in!

    12/27

    30 min elliptical
    Seated OHP 5x10 135
    Dumbbell OHP 5x10 55s

    Shrugs (hammer machine)
    5x15 2 plates
    5x8 3 plates
    3x8 3 plates + 25s

    Lateral raise (machine)
    5x10 135?

    Rear delt machine thing
    5x10 135?
    (Not sure about weights on the machines)

    Training felt great today. I went ham on shrugs after being inspired by a dude there with huge traps. I love huge traps. They are already sore and I still have a pump like 5 hrs later. Fellsgoodman.

    Food.
    2966 cal, 240g p, 181g c, 141g f

    Fat was too high today and I ate no vegetables. Had a fast food breakfast and some nuts later that made my fat go too high. Still, I met my goal of 2500-3000, and I'm not beating myself up and I'm curious to see where this goes. I think I will weigh in on Jan 1st to check my progress and bring in the New Year right.

    Weighed in at 367lbs. -3 lbs. probably water but I'm not gaining.

    Going to the zoo today so that will be my cardio.

    Edit:

    Went to the park instead..walked trails for an hour. No lifting.

    Food:
    1826 cal, 131g P, 151 g C, 81g F

    My fat is high and protein low because I didn't want to eat my planned Greek yogurt/whey combo for dinner and had a salad with 51g of ranch instead. It was yummy, but I'm not gonna lie, I'm freaking hungry right now. I want to get back on an IF protocol to help hunger pangs but not until school starts up again so I have a regular schedule.

    Still, I'm feeling all inspired and that this is possible again. I refuse to buy new clothes darnit.

    Hey NormalMan!

    I've seen your pics and updaes now and again. I miss you too lol. Are any of the old crew still around?

    I quit doing the blog. It's gone. I think that's part of the reason in"gave up." I was hoping maybe to get famous or something and hopefully make a career out of weight loss motivation, but it didn't work out. Then I started gaining weight and then it was just dumb.

    I finally got my teaching cert and am teaching high school in the Dallas area. I also got married to an awesome, beautiful girl who didn't even notice my weight gain lol. Now she's pregnant and I am determined that this baby will not have a fat dad and that getting internet famous is not a good goal to have..for me anyway.

    My job is great my wife is great and we live in a great apartment. I even managed to find Jesus again . So, outside of fitness my life is a complete turnaround. Another reason I put on the weight...last time if you recall I was living with my paretnts at 31 after getting laid off. It made me generally pissed off at life and I channeled that into weight loss. Not being so pissed off anymore made it more difficult for me.

    I got over my shame and realized that another missing component was posting on here. Knowing I will have to report in gives me the extra motivation to stay the course. It's not a mistake I'll make again.

    I spent the better part of an hour reading through my old thread. I got all nostalgic and almost couldn't believe how far I got in such a short time. I also missed all you fellas. I'm sure most have moved on.

    I look at the pix of old skinny me and I can hardly believe it. My little experiment thus far has taught me that my TDEE is over 3000, which is a great comfort. I was going to try to eat at 3000, but after reading my old thread I sort of inspired myself.

    So I'm going to get a bit more aggressive with the deficits, but no way in hell will I do 3 hrs of cardio again....there's no time. I'll do 30 min 5x a week peppered with a few jump rope sessions maybe 3x a week for HIIT. I'm getting better at it and it's fun !

    Thanks for stopping in man. Your progress is amazing. Look at you all swole and shtuff.

    Hey man.

    Great workouts you are getting in - good work.

    I can relate to finding motivation for weight loss in fear or aggression.
    When i got down to 264lbs a couple of years ago, it was because my wife and i hit a communication break down (we've been married 11 years). We couldn't reach each other, so i tried to regain control by losing weight, so i could at least look good.
    But being in a situation with bad communication and then trying to control that, by controlling food and exercise is stressful, and impossible to maintain.

    Looking good is fine, but it is ultimately shallow. I realize that people treat you different when you look "sexy", but for the people who already knows you, they just want to see you happy, and they don't care about your weight.
    So when me and my wife found each other again, i was exhausted, i let go of the control, and started eating again, because i hadn't replaced food with something else that i liked - i had just repressed my cravings, and piled on other stress. My wife doesn't care how much i weight - actually she prefers me big, so there was no external motivation to keep the weight down.

    What i'm trying to say is, when finding a reason to lose weight, i had to dig deeper, so external motivation wasn't so important, and i'm still struggeling to really nail it down, but i'm close.

    So what is the point of you losing weight, other than looking better, and not ebing judged by others for the way you look? It seems like you are in pretty good shape, since you can do rope skipping, so you will have no problems playing with your child.

    So here I am in full glory.

    Scale said 365.0 exactly this morning, so I'm down 10 lbs since Thanksgiving. Your question PeteDenmark inspired me to take photos and measurements.

    Waist: 57"
    Chest: 56"
    Hips: 56"
    Bicep: 18"
    Thigh 33"
    Calf 20"
    Neck 17.5"

    Last time I lost weight I was 450 lbs. and from my experience, the amount of respect you get from people is almost zero at that size. I could walk into any place and garaunteed I would be the fattest person there. It was the worst shopping for groceries. I felt like everyone was judging the crap that I put in my cart, and they probably were. I was a non-person, just trying to get what enjoyment out of Jack-In-The-Box burgers and tacos I could before I died of a heart attack.

    From my year or so of being/feeling like a normal size person (which for me is under 300 lbs) my confidence was great and I got respect from everyone. My wife was so proud to show me off. She's still proud of me, but it's not the same. Thanks to my huge arms and chest (which stayed relatively the same size) I finally looked like the gym rat I've always been. People would ask me lifting advice and ask how they could get bigger. I would tell them I had no idea....getting bigger was never a problem for me, although if you listen to skinny guys complain, they make it seem like it's soooooo hard.

    My confidence stayed with me, but I noticed people getting more and more dismissive of me. My coworkers respect me because they know I'm smart, but I know for most of them they think they've got one up on me because I'm fat. They love to give me work out/diet advice.

    I am a teacher, and that respect also comes from students. When I was muscular Mr. Compy, they listened to me more readily. They did what they were told, and they would talk about if teachers were the Avengers then I would be the Hulk.

    So, I'm not sure if all that is shallow, but mainly I am competitive as hell. I want to be the best teacher, best husband, and best father I can possibly be. I want petty revenge on those who tried to give me advice. I want to be talked about when I'm not around, and I want to be seen as an unattainable object by women and get envious stares from men.

    Is all that shallow? I don't know, but I think I want it all the same. It was sweet, sweet victory that I've felt before, and it's worth it in my opinion.

    Your fat isn't "high".

    The recommendation for people with high body fat is for 0.4g per pound of lean body mass as the absolute minimum to try to get by on otherwise you are just going to mess yourself up metabolically over a year long diet.

    So 70-80g of fats per day is probably right where you ought to be.

    Fasted until 2:00 and then ate 1000 cal. meal. Felt good. Carbs are high because I ate 2 bananas. Protein is too low. Today is still a big win though.

    Training:
    30 min elliptical

    Bench
    3x10 135
    4x8 185
    ...then I sort of went nuts. I pyramided up to 225 and did 2x3, then I came back down to 185 and pounded out 3-5 sets, then I did 3-4 more with 135, but I totally lost track of sets.

    Incline
    3x8 135
    2x8 115
    Last set with 35s on the bar I reached catastrophic failure and had to do the roll of shame. Didn't care though, and it was light enough I just cleaned it and walked it back to the rack.

    Decline hammer machine
    1 45 + 10 on each side
    5x8

    Fly (machine)
    150? 5x10

    Cable fly
    30, 5x8

    Was a really good day. I got a little hungry but I'm glad I solved it with 2 bananas and not 2 XL pizzas.

    Compy - i hope you realize i wasn't calling you shallow. I was saying how you look is only skin deep, and therefore shallow.
    People are idiots (just looks at the YouTube comment section), so for me, trying to achieve a goal so that THEY see me different would leave me feeling alone and angry.
    People see an overweight person and spout "you should just eat less and move more". Well geeh thanks. They should open up a doctors consultation and tell depressed people to cheer up, tell skizofrenics that the voices aren't real, smokers that they should quit because it's unhealthy. Then everything should be fine right?

    For every rich guy, who gives the advice that people should take risks, work hard and pursue their dreams, there is 1000 poor guys who did just that, and lost the shirts of their backs.

    People cherry pick the good stuff from their own lives, post it on Facebook, and when they see a percieved weakness in others, they of course try to "help", because it validates their own choices. But does their lives stand up to scruteny? Those skinny people? How do they treat heir kids, their husbonds/wives, can they fix a car or build a house, are they kind to strangers? If they are, then fine, but they aren't the ones judging you then.

    If i see a person whos car is broken down at the side of the road, i get out and help them. I don't get out, and tell them that they should have made different choices in their lives, so they wouldn't have gotten themselves into that situation, get back in my car, and drive away feeling good about myself for "inspirering" a person, that is not machanically inclined, to better themselves.

    So would i trade my building skills, my mechanical skill, my kindness, my garden, my chickens, my mariage, my echonomic idenpendency etc. for being skinny? A lot of skinny people don't have, and will never have, what i've got. No i wouldn't.
    But just because people can't see all my qualities and skills at first glance, doesn't mean that they are not valuable. They are infinitly more valuable than my looks, my benchpress numbers or my ability to eat 500 calories less a day.

    Looking good and getting compliments for it is great. But it will only last a couple of minutes. If i don't plug the hole in my "self esteem bathtub" it will need constant external input to stay full. But if i plug the hole, by realizing and appreciate the value of all the things that define me, it will allways be full.
    I have tried to fill my emptying bathtub with food, and it helped, but also made me overweight. If i substitute food for compliments from others, i would still be vulnerable.

    I know what i write isn't especially deep or even something you haven't already though about. I'm just trying to explain myself in my broken english, so you don't feel attacked.

    What i'm saying is, i would rather have you come to visit me so we could exchange knowledge on how to produce our own vegetables or building a house, than having to some shaven tween from YouTube come by explaining the intricacies of being swole, getting laid, and eating protein.

    You look fine and strong. I would rather have you by my side in a fight, than one of guys dressed in neon tights from my gym. But i do believe you can improve your life by 10% by getting rid of the excess weight, so if you feel up to it, and can find some joy in the process, i think it's admirable that you go for it.

    Ha thanks Pete, I wasn't feeling attacked, and I'm glad you asked the question because it made me consider why it was I wanted it so bad, and those were the reasons I came up with. I've been lifting, following bodybuilding, reading the magazines etc since I was 16 years old, but I never looked like it because I thought it meant I could eat as much food as I wanted. I really enjoyed being the big, muscular guy for the time that I had it. I've always looked up to Arnold and the Rock and Hulk Hogan, etc.

    If you had asked me before the question it would have been an easy, quick answer: for girls. Now that I've got a girl that I love and who loves me I've had to rethink it.

    Something that's always been tough for me is that I'm naturally just very big. When I say I weigh 360lbs the image people get of that is way worse than I am. I think 300 lbs is a good weight, or anyway that's whe I started to look fit in my opinion.



    12/30


    That being said. Onto my log. I did not train today. Those are always my worst days.

    I did not count calories but I'm going to estimate 3500. That is an overestimation for safety. I did have some carbs and a bit of alcohol so I am going to try my hardest to stay off the scale tonight and tomorrow to avoid depression. I did manage to get In some greens and a good bit of protein so that's good. Tomorrow I will try to do some type of training but it will have to be non-gym 'cuz we're driving three hours.

    Happy New Year everyone. I did ok today. Not great...in fact I might be up a few pounds but that's ok. Did have dinner at the parent's with pot roast a huge potato, Hawaiian rolls and some pie. Oh yeah and peas. I ate a decent amount and only drank a couple of glasses of champagne and some scotch.

    I've made resolutions. Here they are.

    1) I will allow myself to eat 2500-3000 calories a day.

    This will keep me training hard and sane. I might play with carbs later but for now...for 3 months at least, my goal is to get in 3k calls a day.

    2) I will post on my log at least 5 times per week.

    I reserve the right to blow it off here and there, but I think keeping this log going, even if no one is reading it, is very therapeutic for me.

    3) I will focus on doing what I like to do and make time in the day for play (outside of the gym).

    At least one hour of a completely useless activity I only do for pure enjoyment. (Useless is not a requirement just allowed).

    4) I will train harder than I ever have and do whatever I want in the gym.

    I'm not going to stick to some program or protocol or anything. I'm not going to go to some class or a trainer. Nothing is wrong with those things, but I want to do what I want to do. I've got enough experience in the weight room to know what I'm doing, and if I'm not doing it the way I want then I won't care about it. This is what happened with my stint into Crossfit. One week all we did was Kipping motions and the rower and I was like f this and quit.


    5. This year, I will once again get my lifts up from where they are.

    The current are from my most recent workouts last week with weight and reps. On all I did multiple sets at this level.

    Current Goal 2017 (max)
    Deadlift. 275(x3) 405
    Squat. 315(x6) 455
    Bench. 225(x3) 315

    My deadlift has always sucked. I high school I could never figure it out, and my Squat has always been higher, which is abnormal. If I could pull 405, which I have seen plenty of skinny dudes do, I would be pleased.

    My squat goal might seem lofty, but it is my favorite lift and this time last year I was doing 455 regularly. I just want to get back up there again.

    Bench is going to be tough. Also this time last year, I had a terrible muscle cramp thing in my rhomboid that laid me out for a week over Christmas. It eventually worked itself out but the damage was lasting. I was back to benching 135 and it was hard because it would seize up. I am confident that it is fully healed now, and I would like to bench 3 plates, which I was getting close to last year.

    6) I will stay off the scale.

    I will weigh once every two weeks. For the past year, I've been obsessive and yoyo dieting up and up, this is one reason. There have been times where I would eat a meal, or binge, then run and step on the scale immediately to make myself feel worse.

    7)I want to weigh under 300 lbs this time next year.

    Old me would have set that goal for July. That's when my baby will be here. This time, however I am trying to make the weight loss secondary. I want to eat quality food that I like (3000 cal, 200+g protein, 90% of carbs complex, 90% fats healthy fats). Old me had great success losing 10 lbs a month by eating 1800 calories and doing 3 hrs of cardio 6 days a week. I can't do that again. Maybe you hardcore fitness people out there can do that nad enjoy it, but I didn't. I was constantly hungry and sometimes came home and went to bed. I came very close to passing out several times.

    So, I will have a more modest goal of 5 lbs per month for 12 months. That's sixty pounds, and conveniently I am 365. So...I'll have to have a couple of really good months to hit 299.

    So that's all I can think of. I generally want to be morm positive and more vocal about what I want. Iv had a weird problem with that my whole life, even around people who love me. It's weird. I don't fully understand it, but I'm always trying to accommodate others and sacrifice myself to do it. Sometimes that may be good, but not when it interferes with my goals.

    Anyway, again....happy new year. It's taken me like an hour to write this post on an iPad and now there are only 20 min left of 2016. It was a great year for me. Got married. Having a baby. Moved. Got a new job. Fantastic all around except for my hideous and ridiculous weight gain. Well, now that I have income and a place to live and am more stable, I can address this issue once again, though it's hard not to be just really mad at myself for gaining so much of it back. Oh well. Back to the grind, as they say, but this time I intend to enjoy it a lot more.

    1/2

    Yesterday I didn't measure anything. We had to drive 4 hours and we ate whatever. I didn't eat very clean, but I didn't go nuts either. Had some black-eyed peas for luck

    Today:

    3170 cal, 331g P, 251g C, 105g F

    Cals were a little high today. Still aiming for 3000. Going to see what that does to me. Haters welcome.
    Protein is astronomical and I'm not mad at it. Protein keeps me feeling full. I also enjoy eating it. 3000 cals has to come from somewhere, right?


    Training: Legs
    Cardio - 30 min elliptical

    Squat: Again, I lost count of all the warm-ups/lighter sets, but I topped out at 355 doing 4 sets of 3. I probably did 10-15 sets total.

    Leg Press: 4 plates each side - 5x10
    Standing leg curl: - 100 lbs each leg - 5x10
    Glute Ham Raise: (holding a 25) 5x10
    Leg Extension: - 250lbs (the whole stack!) 5x12

    All in all good day. Only problem is that I've been spoiled by having all day to work out. Tomorrow is my last day off before I have to go back to work.

    Hi Compy,

    I was reading over some of your posts, in to follow. But I also wanted to say, being someone who also struggles with my relationship with food, imo its great you're aiming for the amount you are, and from your previous thread obviously it was working.

    You got it.
