  1. Update: Currently 230lbs the weight loss has slowed way down but a total loss of 58lbs so far this year, another 30lbs to go. Pant size went from 44 to 36, shirt size from XXXL to XL. Still got a bit of a spare tire but it's going flat.
  2. Give it another month, then try a full strength soda, it'll foul you out. I haven't had a soda in probably 1.5 years, the other day I was so dry, had to have a drink of something, the only thing around was my wifes Pepsi, took one drink and about puked, like drinking straight sugar.
  3. Ok well I've been slacking when it comes to posting on this but I haven't been slacking on my diet or exercise. I started out at the end of December at 6'2" 288lbs of giant fat ##### I'm proud to say that I'm still 6'2" but only weight 252lbs -36lbs in 2 months, my goal was 225lbs but I decided to push for 200lbs and build back up to 225lb-250 of brick out house. I decided that a total life change was in order, complete over hall of how, what and when I eat. I'm on a very strict diet of green leafy veggies and protein 6-8 meals a day. I train heavy 4-5 days a week at 5am, walk 30min at lunch and come home M-W-F and do another session of abs and some back rehab. Once the FN weather switches to decent temps I'll be WALKING golf courses, I won't carry my bag due to back issues but walking is better than riding, I'll also be on the mountain bike or track everyday. I'm pretty certain that I've actually gained muscle, which is very hard to do on a calorie deficet but with the size gains in my arms (17" up to 18") and almost an 1" on my thighs I know it isn't fat. OH I almost forgot, IMO www.t-nation.com forums are the best site on the net for tips and help with your work out. My new motto: Eat right and lift heavy sh!t! Good luck to you all.
  4. Cool, thanks! I do have a hard time eating first thing in the morning, but maybe I'll choke down some oatmeal or something. I did notice my workouts not all being as good as they were when I worked out in the evenings but thought I was just getting old :pinch:
  5. I'm going to get in on this thread this time around. I've been working hard the last 6 months but haven't been keeping to my diet, I am eating way less and have shown some gains. I've lost 2 jean sizes and am thicker than I have been in a number of years. I do have a question for anyone who might know. I've always heard that you're supposed to eat within the first hour of being awake in the morning to kick start your metabolism but I've also heard that you should do cardio on an empty stomach so you burn the stored energy not the energy in your stomach. Since I work out first thing in the morning, what should I do? Eat then workout or workout then eat? Thanks.
