ooreach just worked out. getting ready for work.
333 to 233 pounds. Nothing sexy about 2.5 years to reach it. It’s just a lifestyle change that keeps progressing. I snuck up on myself with doing away and changing my food choices and my likes and dislikes have fallowed. I’m eating like the thin person I will someday become.
1. weight lifting and cardio 3 times weekly to keep the muscle I have and burn more calories.
2. No fast food or little junk food and most days. This list keeps growing as I realized pretzles, hamburgers and cereals where on that list. (anything with over 5 ingredients is way to over processed.)
3. Veggies are my friends…until I eat the little buggers :) I’m doing carrots and celery daily, better then prezles.
4. my George Forman grill is my best friend.
5. My wife (God bless her) is buying healthy choices. I eat 2 apples most days, brown rice with most meals and oatmeal, egg whites and lots of lean meats.
6. Track fat % along with weight. Loosing to fast will mean your loosing muscle. Not good, muscle burns more calories and when you loose it you slow down your metabolism.
7. Listen to Fat 2 Fit radio podcast. They tell the truth.
Over 2 1/2 years I’ve learned that I don’t want to loose weight, it’s fat and thats by eating right and moving around. Diets never work. When they end you eat like the old fat you and in 6 months or a year it’s back on. That’s what all the diet industries want. REPEAT CUSTOMERS> fast results = fast returns.
100 pounds lost and around 34-44-54 pounds to go. I’m at 29.9% fat and for a 44 year old male i should be in the 11-19% range.
Sad thing is most people that hear about this wont do it. It’s to slow, nothing magical and it’s harder, but that’s ok. It’s like when my wife and I got out of dept, lots of people dream about saving hundreds of dollars weekly, but can’t put that darn credit card away and need a new car pretty much as soon as their older one is paid off
