My old thread was archived... so here is a new one... if I can do this anyone can... just have to get off your arse...

I just changed my settings on the site I keep track of everything from lose to maintain... In September of last year I was 281 pounds... right now I hover around 185... some days down to 183 others 187 but basically right around 185...

Here I am last july and back in December



this was 75 pounds down around Feburary



and here I am today



My original goal was to get to 210... then I figured wtf might as well drop 100 pounds... I ditched that after I had an incident in my fire training where I passed out a couple of weeks back... I was low on calories before a strenuous training and it bit me in the arse...

After that I went from 1800 calories to 2500 and if I get to 180 so be it... don't need to and don't care if I do at this point... would love to lose some of my extra stomach skin though... My Doctor says I may in time... so I'll wait and see... like I really have a choice :)

Great job dude!

Good job. My weight has been up and down my whole life.

The oddest part is you can go a LONG time gaining weight back before you realize how much you've put back on. Keep an eye on it every couple weeks.

Great job man!

Good for you, that's impressive.
Link Posted: 5/7/2013 4:39:23 PM EST
Most impressive. If you were up to 281, you had to make some serious changes. Congratulations on your success.

thanks

I was always a big guy... I have not been in this type of shape since my mid teens... I have watched so many friends bounce on their weight... down and back up... so I know this was the easy part... my goal is to still weigh myself every week and continue tracking my food and exercising... 36 years of not doing that got me to photo #1

Wow great job!

You look awesome. Very inspiring.

I used myfitnesspal.com and tracked my food and exercising... I followed the plan and it worked... set my original goal at 2 pounds per week and then adjusted as I went along...

if anyone joins you can go ahead and add me as a friend there... I am buffcleb there...

I was never a big beer guy... I still have an occasional beer but prefer scotch :) just stay in my target calories for the day and I can eat anything I want...

Good job. I have a few questions..

What was your BMR when you started and how much calorie deficit did you go with throughout your journey?

How much would you say your average calorie expenditures were through exercise?

Any weight training, and did you see any strength gains, or where you too catabolic to add muscle?
Link Posted: 5/7/2013 4:57:04 PM EST
You are inspiring me. 10lbs down from 2 weeks. I am 240 and want to be at 190. What calorie intake were you at when you began? I am at around 1500. I do not exercise as of yet.
Link Posted: 5/7/2013 4:57:21 PM EST
Hell yeah, arfcom 100+ lb down club checking in here. Down from 285 to 175 started around april of last year.

I used the metrics on MFP... I set my activity level at sedentary (I work in a office and sit for hours on end) my current BMR is around 2250 excluding workouts...

My average daily workout has been 600-800... I have been doing double workouts more frequently and hitting 1000+ calorie workouts more often though...

I basically maintained strength levels throughout... I am positive I lost some muscle mass... hard to drop that much that quick and not

nice work.

how bad is the skin you mention? if it's bad enough, you should have the doc cut it off and save it for you. you can send it to a tanner and make wallet.
