Get motivated stay motivated diet!!!

So here's my story in a nutshell.
Ex-football player in highschool. Once I was stopped playing football I gained roughly 50lbs. At one point I was 5'11 298lbs. I went on an easy diet 1 1/2 years ago and lost 50lbs. After that I hooked up with a buddy and turned into a gym bitch 6 days a week for 2 hours. After getting down to roughly 210 pounds, my friend says I should start taking creatine and whey protein. So I start taking these supplements, I start to be able to lift more and feel like I am getting more pumped. After a 3 week cycle of creatine and continuous use of whey protein over the period of 4 months I was basically upto 250lbs again. For a year straight I stayed at the weight no matter how hard I tried. A few weeks ago my other friend who use to be a fatty said Chris I want you to run the SF Marathon with me. We decided on running a half marathon. Been on a hardcore diet of essential foods veggies/chicken/fruits/nuts.

Mind you all for the past 6 months of my life I have been fluctuating between 250-265lbs. Proud to say for my first weigh of the diet 248lbs as of this past friday. Weighing in comes every 3 days. As of today 245.5lbs!!! Besides an immaculate diet, running/jogging atleast 1.5miles everyday with my ex-fatty friend. By my 19th birthday August 24th I should be under 200lbs!!!

Will Keep this thread updated as I progress!

Very nice! You should be really damn proud of yourself to stay like that, since a lot of us just have ADD and stop doing exercise / dieting.

Yeah thanks! I think of this as an addiction I want to keep. My moms ex-husband (father) and grandfather both have diabetes. So I know I must do this at some point.

By no means am I an alcoholic or anything, but seriously. Skip the beer!!! And if you all MUST have a brew with your buddies. I recommend MGD 64 or Bud Light Lime.

Your logging is a lot more fancy than mine. I just update every Saturday morning on Word. LOL.

I don't even see it as a diet, I see it as a new lifestyle. Here's my 'log'...

Goal is to be around 160-165 lbs at 7-8% body fat by summer of 2010.

And yes I know the home scale isn't the most accurate way to measure body fat as there are only 2 electrodes.


Initial = 210 lbs
9/13/08 = 205 lbs
9/21/08 = 201 lbs 29% body fat
9/27/08 = 200 lbs 28% body fat
10/4/08 = 199 lbs 27.7% body fat
10/11/08 = 197 lbs 27.1% body fat
10/18/08 = 195 lbs, 25.3 % body fat
10/25/08 = 191 lbs, 23.7% body fat
11/1/08 = 187 lbs, 24.8% body fat
11/8/08 = 187 lbs, 23.8% body fat
11/15/08 = 184 lbs, 21.5% body fat
11/22/08 = 182 lbs, 21.4% body fat
11/29/08 = 181 lbs, 21.9% body fat
12/6/08 = 179 lbs, 20.4 % body fat
12/13/08= 178 lbs, 20.7% body fat
12/20/08 = 177 lbs, 19.7% body fat
12/27/08 = 173 lbs, 19.6% body fat
1/3/09 = 172 lbs, 18.9% body fat
1/10/09 = 172 lbs, 18.3% body fat
1/17/09 = 167 lbs, 17.4% body fat
1/24/09 = 165 lbs, 15.4% body fat
1/31/09 = 162 lbs, 15% body fat
2/7/09 = 160 lbs, 15.6% body fat
2/14/09 = 156 lbs, 14.2% body fat
2/21/09 = 155 lbs, 13% body fat
2/28/09 = 155 lbs, 12.9% body fat
3/7/09 = 152 lbs, 13.1% body fat
3/14/09 = 151 lbs, 13.3% body fat
3/21/09 = 152 lbs, 12.3% body fat
3/27/09 = 150 lbs, 12.3% body fat
4/4/09 = 150 lbs, 12.1% body fat
4/11/09 = 148 lbs, 11.4% body fat
4/18/09 = 147 lbs, 11.6% body fat
4/25/09 = 147 lbs, 11.6% body fat
5/2/09 = 149 lbs, 11.2% body fat
5/9/09 = 149 lbs, 11.7% body fat
5/16/09 = 150 lbs, 11.5% body fat

How tall are you? Being 5 11 245 pounds actually isn't bad, but definitely not good. I can ask pretty much any person and most would guess my weight is around 200-220. I do have alot of muscle, but there is much fat to be lost!

Picked up my Fat Burner/Recovery/Energy Booster today after much thought.
Got Cellucor D4 Thermal Shock. 120 Caps 54bucks done deal. Immediately felt the energy hit me. Ran a 14.8 100 Meter today.

Btw to anyone that loves salad Shrimp Louie FTW.

Update!
Been running atleast 2 miles everyday and started to lift with a friend of mine. I can feel the weight shedding off. All awhile I can feel that I am gettng alot stronger. Due to the lifting I am not losing as much as I hoped, but I am still very on track. Down to 239lbs!! I will keep this thread alive all summer. Next stop 210lbs running the SF half marathon!!

The other thing that helps is taking pics of yourself for motivation. Maybe once a week or something and put it by your mirror.

i used to weigh an all-time high of 225ish about 6 months ago (i'm 6').

stopped going on this forum so damn much, been eating smart, and have been working out and doin cardio religiously. i now weigh 200 flat.

should be down to 190 by the end of summer. i think 180-185 is my optimal weight. i hope to reach thst by the year's end.

don't think like that. fuck it if your weight isn't going down as fast as it used to. it's all about body fat, and you're still burning just as much as you did. mine's slowed down since i've hit 205. i'm just gettin big (in a good way).

get huge son haha.

Update!!

Been doing a good 60+ minutes of cardio, 20 minute planks/sit ups, and lifting for an hour. Down to 236lbs and I can truly feel myself getting soo much stronger. Just picked up my new supplements today also, as I didn't find
Cellucor D4 Thermal Shock as promising as I promised.

The new supplement I picked up is Animal Cuts from Universal Nutrition. I will be on a 3 week cycle of this stuff and depending on how it goes, I will go from there.



As promised will keep everyone updated in my progress. Stay Healthy Bimmerpost!!!

Whatever you do, throw the scale out the window. The minute you get obsessed with that number, that's only going to help you fail. I'm glad to see you've understood the fact that lifting will often not help you lose overall weight.

If you cut your time in between sets down to 45 seconds max, it helps keep your heart rate up throughout your lifting workout, and increases muscular endurance while also still allowing you to do strength-focused exercises. I've found it's easiest to get comfortable in a 10-exercise/5-sets-each/8-reps-each-set routine, with normal time between sets, and then gradually, a little bit each day, decrease down time until I only give myself 30-45 seconds in between sets. Now, I get an incredibly intense and thorough workout in about an hour.

I used to try to use every supplement under the sun, including andro and prohormones (anyone else remember M-One-T?), but now I'm just down to good ol' NO2, No-Xplode (aka "make my ass xplode right before workout"), and protein.

What will help you the most is making sure you're adding lean mass, increase your metabolism through a healthy diet, and don't get caught up on the weight factor. Also, and I can't stress this enough, make sure you are lifting properly, not cheating or jerking. Who cares how much you have in your hand.... So many people get injured or don't see results, and they wonder why.... Well, if you're doing standing curls with your calves and quads, how the hell are your biceps going to get bigger?

Best advice I can give you is to get ahold of Arnold's New Encyclopedia, read it, find a routine that works well for you, and go for it. It took me a couple years to find what works best for me, and most people have very differing needs in order to get into shape. Plus there are so many different ways to be in shape, but if you're training for a marathon, maybe you want to go balls to the wall on the endurance aspect, and lift minimally on the upper body...?

I am going balls to the wall, but recently I was asked to play football again so I need to be lifting as well as cardio.
A few things I need to get done by August 24th:
Squat 345
Bench 280+
Calf Raise 500
Dumbbell press 100

What I am at
Squat: 245
Bench: 205
Calf Raise: 400
Dumbbell press: 65lbs

I need all the help I can get at this point. Will post pictures soon!!
