So a couple of months ago I had posted that I had dropped some weight got as far 259lbs. That was the lightest I've been in years. Unfortunately bad habits brought me back up to about 275 or so. I've been working the weight down and I'm currently at 265lbs as of yesterday morning. I'm hoping to make it to 205 or so be the end of the year and I'm going to go back on my lifting routine.

I'm giving myself until summer of next year to look completely different. We shall see.

down to 252 this past Friday. I'll weigh again this week and if I keep my diet in check I'll be 249. First time in years. Slowly the weight keeps coming off.

245lbs. Still working at it. I started running lately but completely stopped lifting. I'm thinking of getting back on a lifting program like 5/3/1 and keep calories around 1800-2000 or so. I can't allow myself to burnout and i need a more sustainable diet.

Ironically, lifting helps running. At least when it comes to squats, deadlifts, and other leg/back movements.

I haven't really ran in a while nor while I was lifting a while ago. But I guess I will soon find out.

10+#/month weight loss goal sounds a bit unrealistic. sounds like this is more about making decent progress

I'd consider 0.5# -- 1.0# /week pretty amazing progress to do consistently. Which seems to be where he is

What works for me is 1lb a week to keep me from burning out. Sure itll take more time. But, when in the past I've dropped 2-3lbs a week and it just isn't for me.

Weighed in today.

236.3


I still have 8 days until the 23rd which would be 1 month from my weigh in of 245. I did an aggressive deficit. By the end of the month I'm pushing to be at or near 229-232.

So I'm pretty sure that by the 23rd of this month, one month ago exactly that I was at 245lbs, I will be at 232-234lbs. By the end of the month I will most likely be around 230 if not under. No way I'm going to try to pull off 10lbs+ again in a month. lol fuck that.

A few years ago when I was still in the service I remember being 212 lbs at 21% bf. But then again at that time I had endurance but not really lifting experience. Over the past 3 years or so I've gotten familiar with the compound lifts(squat, deadlift, bench). I've gotten up as high as 335 lbs on deadlifts and squat and about 210 on the bench.

My ideal goal would be to get down to 190ish but not be flabbish/skinny fat. Having lifted the past 3 years, will there be a significant difference in my appearance once I hit 210 lbs again? 190 lbs? I know there is no way of knowing as everyone is different but I guess I need an idea so that I can continue to push towards that goal.

At this point I'm really wondering if I should slow down the weight loss, up my calories and start lifting heavy again so that weight comes off gradually. I think I would be ok losing 1-1.5 lbs per week if by the time I hit my goal weight I don't look skinny fat. Any advice would be appreciated.

And to give an idea of my numbers prior to ever lifting, I think I was able to bench 135 lbs less than 5 times, squat and deads I never even knew about them so no idea.

2lbs / week is pretty standard without wanting to kill yourself I thought.

Did you not see a difference in your body composition through lifting yet? I haven't lost any weight (I think I gained a lb as of this morning) since I started lifting again back around March, but I've seen a physical difference. I'm ready now I think to switch to more of a weight loss approach while maintaining what strength I can to lose 15lbs, then re-asses.

Well, I think I didn't see much of a change because I had so much more fat on me. Those numbers I quoted were when I was 290+ and said fuck it. And ate and just lifted. But I'm curious to see how or if any changes will be noticeable once I she'd the weight. I'm thinking of slowing down on the weight loss and just lifting the rest if the way to shed another 35lbs.

Yup looks like 233 it is. So 12lbs in a month isn't too shabby. Will I go for it again? Nope.

Now I'll stick to 2lbs a week until the end of the year. So I'm hoping I can hit 215-219 by Jan 1st.

Long term goal for the next couple of months is to get down to 190ish. Slow bulk to 205-210 rinse and repeat.

Long term goal i Would like to:

3mi run back under 19min.
Squat/deadlifts 315
Bench 225

Will like to see where I stand in 6 months and 12 months out.

What's your time now on a 5k? Under 21min isn't too difficult, but it does suck especially if you don't like running. I fucking hate running. Lol
