    Big Daddy tired of being BIG in the wrong way (aka FAT)

    Intro:

    I'm a 34 year old male at 6'3" and weighing in at 295 pounds. Currently, I'm at 33% BF according to my calipers and measurements. I'm tired of being overweight, fat and coming up with excuses on why I can't/won't fix this. So over the course of a month and a half I bought a cage, solid flat bench, a 300 pound olympic weight set, weight tree and read as much as I could here. I used to lift weights in high school and college and needless to say the lifting programs pretty much sucked from what I've learned on this board. Basically, there were too many isolation and benching exercises and not enough core strength exercises.

    Goals:

    I'm trying not to get ahead of myself too much. I think I know where I want to be but I have a feeling once I get into this that my long term goals will shift. Although, I'm watching my weight I'm more concerned about what I see in the mirror, how my clothes fit and what those dang BF calipers are telling me. Here are my short and mid term goals in no particular order.

    Short Term:
    Goal 1: Get down to 30% BF by losing 1-2 pounds a week and lifting hard - GOAL MET: First of March 2010!
    Goal 2: Working out with 600 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) on SS - GOAL MET: I'm at 630# as of 2-4-2010!
    Goal 3: Get my weight down to 285 - GOAL MET: I'm at 284.6 as of 4-11-2010!
    Goal 4: Working out with 800 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) on SS - GOAL MET: I'm at 810# as of 3-4-2010!
    Goal 5: (Added 3-4-2010) Have a 250# bench for my three working sets on SS - GOAL MET: I made it on 4-18-2010!
    Goal 6: (Added 3-16-2010) Working out with 900 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) on SS. - GOAL MET: I'm at 910# as of 4-8-2010!

    Mid Term:
    Goal 1: Continue to get down to 25% BF by losing 1-2 pounds a week and lifting hard
    Goal 2: Working out with 750 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) on SS - GOAL MET: I'm at 760# as of 2-23-2010!
    Goal 3: Get my weight down to 275 - Aiming for 6-1-2010 - GOAL MET: 6-12-2010!
    Goal 4: Working out with 850 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) on SS - GOAL MET: I'm at 850# as of 3-16-2010!
    Goal 5: (Added 3-16-2010) Working out with 950 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) on SS.- GOAL MET: Late May 2010!

    Long Term:
    Goal 1: Working out with 1000 pounds combined of the three big lifts (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) - GOAL MET: 7-28-2010! - RAW 417.5/310/385 @ 1112.5
    Goal 2: Get my weight down to 250 - Originally aimed for 12-31-2010 but now the target is before Thanksgiving! - GOAL MET: 12-5-2010!
    Goal 3: Get my BF % to 20% or less

    How I'm going to accomplish this:

    I'm using Starting Strength as my initial routine. Also, I'm cleaning up my diet and trying to make sure I get a lot of protein. My "official" weigh in day is going to be on Sunday as I'm lifting on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. At the end of the month I'll see if I'm hitting my goal weight lifting numbers according to the SS routine. Also, at the end of the month I will measure my BF% and adjust my goals.
