    Keeping things short, I have lost about 60 lbs since January of 2020 with an increase in fitness and healthier diet. I count calories and try to eat more veggies and fruits to curb the hunger. Currently trying to avoid being on medication for longer than a year.

    I have hit the low 250s and stalled for various reasons. Overall, it's because I am tired. I've been going at this thing for a long time, and the past couple relaxed weeks have helped me get my drive back. People don't really talk about how mentally draining it is to lose weight, but I am working on that. I know that I'm really close to a body I will love, and I'm excited to get there.

    So this is basically part 2 of my journey. I'm about halfway to my original big goal marker(hitting 210lbs would put me at 100lbs lost) and I plan to really be active this summer. I want to be around 225 by my next doctor's visit(September) because if I have a good visit they will start to move me off these pills. After September, I plan to be 205 around December/January. After that, I will reassess my goals.

    Please hold me to it

    Edit: 5/4 254lbs


    This week I will focus on increasing eating at home and cardio. Will continue current strength training regiment.
    Congratulations for losing 60 lbs and very soon you'll reach your goal too. You've come so far, there's no doubt that you can't do it or you'll lose any motivation.

    I'm in. I would love to hear your progress.

    Plates: 45-45-35-25-10-35-10 This is a big ass pr

    Dropped down to 425 for 4x2

    Gotta be honest, ended up catching an impromptu movie and never got my workout in. Will move cardio and bodybuilding to today, and pickup bench/squat set tomorrow.

    Scale is still moving. Back to 246. Feeling good, but hoping to see 239 here soon if I can stay disciplined.

    Lol have yall ever had a time where you tried to be healthy but it seemed like the universe was against you? I had a decent breakfast yesterday, but had to go a long time without eating. Decided to get subway since I still wouldn't be home for a while. Had a nice turkey sub with a bunch of spinach and other veggies, then their machine went down and I didn't have cash lmao.

    It's just funny how it works out sometimes. Thankfully I haven't been eating much fast food, so it won't do more than make me hold a bit of water.

    Thanks man. Sometimes it's hard to remember that. I really enjoy seeing my scale move more than anything.

    Summer vacay is almost here, and my activity is about to ramp up. Plan is to bodybuild 3-4 days a week, and strength train 4-5 days a week. I'll alternate the bodybuilding training in the morning so that it doesn't impact evening lifts too much. Early morning and some afternoon cardio 2-3 times a week will become the norm as well. At least that's the plan

    Example:

    Monday
    5am - Bodybuilding: Back workout
    6am - Basketball training drills(Handles, Layups, Shooting)
    9am - Rest and Eat
    Optional afternoon cardio(swimming, ultimate frisbee, etc.)
    6pm - Bench/Squat routine
    9pm - flexibility/mobility routine

    It won't always be this intense, but there should be at least one or two days a week like this. It's a lot easier to focus on health without a bunch of outside distractions. For now I plan to finish out the week, and then will update once break starts.

    Damn, even though it's one to two days a week, it's pretty busy and intense schedule. Waiting to hear more..

    it's definitely not out of reach. the main problem with deadlift is findong my form again. setup is good, but I seem to be having issues during the movement. may need to take some time to find that groove before things really progress.

    ended up failing my 5th set yesterday. will be doing cardio today and lift again tomorrow. bought more groceries, so I should be back on track with everything today.

    Thanks guys!

    I have to be honest. I've had some bad slips the past couple of weeks. I kept thinking it was no big deal and then I looked up and had gained slightly more than 15lbs smh. I've been following my diet plan again and it's slowly coming back off.

    Back has been bothering me since last week. Lower back pain when active, qnd feels like i have a muscle strain on my right shoulder blade. Currently doing low impact cardio, abs, and flexibility training.

    I will be out of town for the next week, and am not sure if I will have a gym nearby. Will try to get more SS cardio innuntil I get back.

    Sunday weight: 270
    Current weight: 260
    I want to look straight down and see my toes.

    Yeah I'm stricter with that again too. Much easier when I cook at home, so I just gotta be consistent with that

    Sorry guys I've been real busy lately but I have good news

    Went to florida to watch my friend compete in usapl powerlifting nationals over the weekend. We had fast food but I stuck to the healthiest options I could. Definitely slightly dehydrated from the humidity but I'm currently back on track with my weight

    I also decided to focus on bodybuilding for the rest of the summer, and switching back to powerlifting after. My strength is okay right now, but I really need to add more muscle to my frame asap.

    Good job man! Low 240s has been a sticking point for me historically. Push through and you've got it.

    Yeah my last plateau was definitely the 250s. The competition helped me get my resolve back, so I'm hoping to see 230s by July.

    I haven't been 242 since college....we are in old territory again.

    Alright no longer dehydrated I'm weighing in at about 247 right now. I am waiting on a doc appt to get cleared to continue lifting. Until then I will be doing SS cardio. Finally added some overdue progress pics to my gallery.

    These minor injuries are annoying and I'm honestly considering focusing on cardio until my gut shrinks. I'm tired of looking at it. Sadly it will probably be here until I get under the 200s considering how I looked in the past. I can't really see myself getting as low as 170, so it may be something I have to learn to live with.

    On the positive side I've been feeling really good lately. I can move, and I want to. We have another beach trip for my mothers birthday this week, so I will try to walk as far as I can on the coastline everyday.

    Keep going man.

    I currently weigh more than you so take my advice with a grain of salt, but the best way to make sure you continue losing is to track your calories and not eat more than a number you know is less than you need to maintain your weight. Cardio helps but if you try to drive your weight loss by it without counting your calories, it's all too easy to eat your progress.

    Have you picked a number and stuck to it?

    I havent been following it strict lately. Have been mostly traveling and eating out, which is always a recipe for my plateaus. Once we get back from my moms trip I'll be cooking for myself again.

    Considering how active I've been so far I think 2500 is a minimum. I'm getting a bike and a pool membership when we get back to add on to my outdoor activities. I'm trying to get outside 3-4 days a week, in tandem with lifting. Maximum will likely be 3000 if I can get my two a days started again.

    Yeah, something between 2500 and 3000 is probably a good number.

    A sobering reality to encounter is how vanishing that number is unless spent on whole food sources, particularly lean ones. Lean sources of protein like chicken breast and fresh fish (if you have access to it) are fantastic since it's gold for nutritional purposes and relatively sizeable for the calories.

    Rice and potatoes are also staples that help me out when I want to eat a lot and be full without going over a limit: you can even pan fry potatoes for a reasonable calorie range. I made delicious home fries this morning with one tablespoon of oil and two small/medium potatoes. Only about 500 calories. You can use a little bit of oil and still make tasty food. The consolation is, you KNOW how much you used and you can apply it to your limit and be confident it's not going to goof up your progress, unlike at a restaurant where you can't be sure how much they used and very well might have soaked your food in oil.

    One combo meal at McDonald's is the caloric equivalent of three hefty, creamy bowls of rice with egg white and Greek yogurt, flavored with a sauce of your choice. One has over 100 grams of protein, and the other is the McDonald's.

    EDIT: Don't mean to throw unsolicited advice your way, so much as communicate the potentially helpful observation that eating certain whole foods that you like makes a huge difference in portion if the deficit is difficult.

    Oh for sure man. I'm gonna try your fry recipe when we get back. Icm not a big fan of fast food fries anyway, and really only eat them out of habit. If I can make a good batch at home itl help with those cravings.

    I'm going to post my meal plan when I get paid this week and wel see how I do.
