I think the tanita scales are good but kind of expensive. You could always just use measurements like waist circumference and/or bodyweight to guide you. Just count calories and the weight comes off. I would use www.fitday.com
It takes a while though to lose weight, but I'm sure you know that already. Goodluck.

Oh and even though im going to regret making this public, not like anyone is going to read it but yeah here is my exact diet and activity list. Maybe this will motivate me to eat better and start getting my ass in gear
w00t, wieghed in this morning at 241.5, waiting on the %bodyfat scale thats in the mail :P
Okay So today was a very good day, I improved my diet a tad. Today was off day on WBB 1 but i went to the gym and did this
Cross training On eliptical
643 calories burned
3.3 Miles Passed
Average Heart rate 159
I felt really good after doing this, I think if i mix this 3 day weights 2 day cardio routine with a nice thermogenic The fat should come off pretty quickly. Any comments or opinions welcome
sounds like a good plan to me man....best of luck, will continue to check your progress regularly
PRs: 655/525/645 = 1825 Total
Meet PRs: Bench Only 525
Deadlifts bring people together. It's a fact. - Chris Rodgers
Okay today was my first Leg day at the gym ever, I did squats for the first time in my life. It was more about learning form and getting a feel for it than anything else. I got a scary headache/headrush out of no where while doing Strait leg DL's. All is well now, atleast I think so. Since the max I did on squat today was 105 thats what Im going to say my max is for now. Diet is going pretty well, getting my **** strait, going food shopping tomarrow. Getting about 160g of protein a day now. I know its not great but it sure beats what i was getting before. I had to much fat today comapred to the protein and carbs i had. Even though its at 38% of my daily recomended grams I am eating 4 meals a day since that is what time allows me and I/m averageing about 2200 calories a day which is good for my 241 pounds ASS.
Todays work out was Legs
95 x 8
105 x 8
40 x 10
60 x 10
180 x 8
210 x 8
Strait Legged Deadlifts (think this caused me a lgiht Anurism (sp?))
105 x 8
175 x 7
Standing Calve Raises
140 x 8
160 x 10
180 x 10
180 x 10
Like I said today was more about getting a feel for the weights and form. Im searching for the right weight that lets me complete the recommended reps before failure.
Tomarrow is Cardio If i can still walk. If not Its back to the gym for Day 3 of WBB Arms and Shoulder
Today Was BLAH! Even though Diet was great, really getting more protein now and much less fat im eating under 2200 calories a day to cut my ass into shape. After trying to go to the gym for some running/cardio I realized something, Instead of taking sundays off I should be takign the day after legs off. I can barely get onto chairs and walk up and down stairs let alone do 30-45 minutes of cardio. Tomarrow is arms and shoulders and im Psyced!!!
My legs are still sore as hell, Diet is looking better cants wait to do arms and shoulders today
keep it up man!

Wow, someone actually reads this hurray. Thanks man, I have never been this enthusiastic about anything else in my life.
Woot arm day at the gym today, Im still getting a feel for everything soo it was kind of blah but the soreness afterwards did tell me that what I did do worked out them arms
And I cant find my journal atm so ill post some numbers tomarrow morning
Diet is looking pretty good still which im happy about.
Damn I really hate my body right now. Fat= evil
this is too funny..
we have basically the EXACT same bodytype, measurements, etc.
These are pics of me from the beginning of January. I am 6'1, and weighed 245 there I think. I'm 239 now (I finally quit lifting for size like I said I would in that thread), and seem to be dropping a pound or two per week (if I keep my butt on the treadmill). It's just very difficult to accept that my progression on the weights will slow if I start dropping weight. I'm noticeably more cut now than in those pics, and especially in my back and legs, as I wasn't doing deadlifts or squats at that time. I guess I just decided that I'd rather be thinner than fat and muscular.
Oh..good luck with your cutting, but don't expect to put on much size while you do it. Since you're new to this, the strength gains will come for a while regardless as you get your body accustomed to the lifting. I just thought I'd let you know tha you aren't the only fatty on the board.
yup yup, im glad someones reading this thing lol for a while I though i was in here all by my lonesome :P
It takes time to get dedicated "journal stalkers," and you have to become one yourself to reel anyone in. That is, unless, you happen to be one of the guys pushing massive weight around...then everyone reads your journal.Originally Posted by XxH0LyWaRsxX

7 x 70
7 x 60
7 x 30

Over all I felt good after the work out, This completed my first week on this routine hopefully next week I will have some decent numbers on all body parts since im becoming accustomed to the weight my fat ass can handle
You're pushing much heavier weight than I was at the same point. I started out in September with a max bench of something around 120. Now it's closer to 200, but you're definitely starting out well.
