Your calves are gonna look crazy when you drop some fat, they look pretty strong now and will look stronger after some of the fat comes off.

You should do a search for BigKevin20's before and after pics.

They'd be a good inspiration to you.

I was thinking the same thing. Good job on getting the ball rolling; you're already done with the hardest step - getting started.

To be 100% honest - based on your self description, I was expecting worse. Like the others, I think you are too hard on yourself. It's not going to happen over night, but you have the motivation and you have the support ... no doubt you'll achieve your goals. At least you better achieve them, or I'll look bad, and then I'll have to hunt you down. :)

Actually i have lost 29 so far. I hit a wall last week but i changed some things around and the weight is dropping off again. i guess i should update the stat. Also that VBB pic is not mine. I wanted a new avatar and just took the largest VBB i could find.

Start hitting the weights NOW. Have been absent from this board for a WHILE. You are in fact very obese, barely any definition of muscle....if any at all.

Now, dont read this, cry and go attack a tub of ice cream. This **** is what we call constructive criticism. You obviously are here to improve yourself so I'll tell it like it is. There isnt anything on the market that is gonna make you slimmer if you yourself are not commited. You're gonna have a LONG journey ahead of you. Try to keep yourself motivated by remembering all the time people have made fun of you, calling you "lard ass" or what not...they may not be saying it to your face, but most likely behind your back. Do you wanna stay like that for the rest of your life? Go out and do something about it....good luck man.

I would like to thank everyone for their positive comments. The one thing that i dont like is jummping or bashing someone for stating their own opinion. I am a TRUE beleiver in free speech. I know that this subject is touchy because some people can be offended by some speech while it will not affect anothers. Remember for the system to work the law must protect everyone or no one! i can take what he said and pick out what i need to work on. The only two things that i did kinda of object to was for one that he has been gone for awhile and even thou i am new most of you know my story and has has shown great support for me. The other one was that he said that i have no muscle definition at all which i disagree with. Most of you pointed out that my calves were my strong point and in time they will be huge. In closing even if when don't agree with what or how someone says something i do beleive they have the right to do so as long as it isnt a hateful, or in a racist way

Keep at it man, you will reap the benefits as I will :-)

Keep us posted.

I am going to find a pic of me at my fattest and post it here just to compare. I was 13, 200+lbs, about 5'2", WAY over 35% bodyfat. Holy ****, I was fat. See, if I'd had a growth spurt that took me over 5'4", the weight wouldn't have been so bad.

Used to eat Snowballs(Hostess, not some ripoff), six at a time. Snowballs-to those who dont know- are a cream filled chocolate cupcake covered in a half-inch thick layer of white or pink marshmallow and then that is covered with shredded coconut. Its the devil's quadruplet of bad food. You break three deadly sins just by eating one, and I did it with relish. We had a Hostess factory store in town because there is a Hostess Bakery in Sacramento. They make Wonder brand bread, if you didnt know. A package of two of anything (two twinkies, two ho-hos, two snowballs, Home-Run Pies, etc) was about 25 cents. We would go there and get an obscene amount of snacks.

God damn, I miss the freedom of eating when I was such a fatass. I ate what I wanted when I wanted. Now if I eat too much pizza I actually..feel...guilty. It blows.

Ogar, don't forget that you're making a lifestyle change here. Believe it or not, you may miss some aspects of being fat. I do, strangely enough. You may miss the way you intimidate some people and might find yourself having to take more **** than you used to. I'm pretty short and when I was fat I was highly unnoticable, I miss being able to walk around virtually undetected. I also miss the guilt-free binge eating-which, now that I'm bulking up and working out, I do get to do on a smaller scale, but I can't eat the same stuff I did before, just more good food. I wish I could take a day off from reality and palm a rack full of Ho-Hos and Tiger Tails and Yellow Zingers and Bit-O-Honeys and Twinkies and Snowballs(the white, not the pink), and Susie-Qs and Lorna Doones; I'd take them home and sit on my bed and roll around in them all, covering my naked body with their goodness, and then I'd eat every one of them and sleep in the wrappers with one hand on my bloated belly and the other hand on the remote.

But I can't, because I know what would happen.

I'm 22 now, btw. Lost most of the weight on a crazy ass whim one night after I'd eaten myself stupid on microwave chimichangas when I was about 15 1/2. I lost a lot of weight in the first year just by not eating ****ty food for the most part. I probably dropped 30 pounds in one year, slowly, yes. Puberty helped but not much, I don't think. I got down to about 165 by senior year when I was 17 but had no muscle and was still probably about 20%bf.
My roommate in college was a lifter and he really got me into it, we got dumbells and an ez bar in our dorm room and lifted weights in our room and went to the gym every once in a while. Yeah, we did legs, too. I got down to about 16%bf and built a little mass in that time.
The year after that I went insane and started to drop fat again, like a fiend, and got down to a sickly bodyweight of 135, still over 13%bf, but about 0% lean bodymass (I'd burned my intestines up on a long jog)

I went on a trip to London and ate myself stupid and had a hell of a time. I dont know what it was but when I got back and had put on a few pounds I elt pretty good about it, so I began to eat a little more and more and started working out very seriously and built a few pounds of muscle, got up to 152lbs, around 10%bf, and felt fantastic. That was the leanest I ever got though.

Christ. Thats enough about me.

Bottom line- its a hell of a journey. Now move it.

Hostess? hehe, Power to ya man, I woulda eaten like that guy from Seven with the spaghetti if I lived near a Hostess Bakery a year ago. :o

My main thing was sicilian pizza's. I used to eat 1/2 of one in a sitting. The owner actually called me Hungry-Guido as a nick. :/

i think bigboi's comment is fine- he's telling it how he sees it. in fact i even like the comment, sometimes u need an honest opinion or even degrading comment to motivate you...

but what i like even more is the way ogar handled it, basically he said " i know im big, but im workin on it"
if there's one person who i kno is gonna work hard, its ogar
- and if he spent half the time on the bike as he did making polls, he'd already be there. jk-

Thanks for the postive comments on the weight loss. But to be honest if say you were 60lbs over weight and lost 40 their would be a noticable difference. But for me being as large as i am 40 lbs is really hard to see unless you can see me in person or have known me. My wife always says she can see the differenc where i cant. I do notice that my clothes are getting very loose. The best part is when i run into someone i havent seen in months and they notice it....Funny but sad story. My father came to Pa for a visit last week and i did not tell him about my weight loss or that i have shaved my head bald. I was going to surprise him when i went to see him during the summer(he is retired and lives by the beach). Anyhow he calls and says meet me at this resturant. When we get there he keeps looking at me and finally he says"are you sick" and i ask why and he thought i was getting chemo because i lost weight and had no hair..

I agree with Reinier, 40 lbs is friggin' awesome and you should be proud of that. It's not just the pounds, but your cholesterol is a lot lower. Your overall health is improving. You have decided to take control of your life and your fitness. You're doing it the right way with diet and exercise. I feel others in your position would have taken the easier way out and gotten gastric bypass surgery even though 1 in 200 people die because of it.

Keep up the good work man. :thumbup:
