Didn't know where else to put this. Watsup everyone. I'll get straight to the point. This is my story (haha). At the start of this school year I was 6"3 285 lbs or so and have floated between 280-290+. I always played sports and was quite good but in bad shape and not strong strength wise for my size. I just turned 17 so it was time to take matters into my own hands. I was always on the heavier side but the last 2 years of my life especially the summer before were spent playing video games on the computer and eating which seemed to go hand and hand for me lol. I eventually balloned up to my worst at maybe 290.
It was finally time to go the opposite way of 300. Don't get me wrong I was fat at but at my height I wasn't ridicuously bad etc. I decided after soccer to make a change. A buddy of mine had been lifting for a while etc I signed up and it began. I learned infinite amounts about what I needed to do and before I knew it I was at my alltime best of borderline 230 give or take. I was so proud of losing 50+ lbs since my last physical and being in so much better shape etc. I could touch the rim of a hoop before but now I can dunk even throw it off the backboard to myself and 2 hand it. I also would add I know bench doesn't matter but just as comparision I went from barely repping 115 to repping 175-185 and maxing in the low 200's which I found great for being 50 lbs lighter and stronger. I also squat 315 and dead a little more than that. Another key factor is the diet. I went from eating takeout all the time basically whatever I wanted I went pretty strict. At times I missed the gym or I slacked or I ate bad but overall I was really really doing good.
End school year or so things happen and I fall off my buddy ends gym membership and I lose motivation to go out and lift so I havent lifted much in the last few weeks. I also have pretty much given up my diet for the last months or two. I'm still really active and still am around the 235-240 lb mark so at most i've gained ten pounds of it back. I know however that its time to chill on the gaming and focus on what really matters. I've been doing so much better and even getting girls etc but now its time for me to really get back on the wagon. I'm not gunna stay up late every night gaming and eating and sleep to 2-3. I'mma go to bed at a decent hour and get up and hit the weights 3-4x a week. I'm going away to college in less than a month and I want nothing to hold me back. Also with the buffet everyday and drinking partying if I dunt get back on track I never will. I know this is a giant read and I'm nto even quite sure what i'm looking for. Maybe some motivation maybe some criticism maybe even just a I like your story. I am going to end with its time for me to do this I thought I would be in bad shape forever and I saw my goals were possible and even got close but lately have fell off. My goal weight was like 220 depending on how I looked etc but I cut it 10-15 lbs short and went the other way. Well its time to get mine so thank you for your time.
