I've started lifting again. The only difference between now and the other ten times I've re-started lifting in my life is that I'm not skinny anymore. I'm overweight.
I'm about 5'11" and 180 lbs at 20% body fat.
It's been about two months, and I'm happy with my progress, but I'm still quite fat. I may look a bit thinner, but that is only because my chest protrudes a bit farther out then my gut now.
I'd like to lose ten pounds quickly, as I'm getting sick of carrying this goo around with me everywhere I go.
I was thinking of eating nothing but V-8 juice and milk for a week to see what happens (not really but kinda), but I thought you guys might have a better idea.
The good news is that my weight has stabilized through no more than watching how much I eat, if not what I eat, so I figure if I can drop 10 lbs I can probably keep it off if I keep going to the gym.
