I have a few questions, and I'm going to post some pictures.
these pictures weretaken on Feb 10th.
I weighed 345 Lbs. at 6'2". (Tight size 54 pants)
I went on Atkins, and currently I weigh 290. (Tight size 46 or a loose 48)
Now I waited until I dropped below 300 lbs. to start lifting...I just didn't have time, means, or energy to do it.
So, now I'm walking 45 minutes a day (a little over 2 miles) on a treadmill 7 days a week. I quit smoking a month ago.
Now, here's where I get to my questions?
3 weeks ago I started lifting.
Should I try to lose as much weight as possible before trying to get big, or should I just go ahead and lift just like I'm trying to bulk, yet eat the LC diet?
(I'm eating under 20 Carbs a day, except on the days I train, and on those days)
I'm doing basic compound lifts 2 nights per week (Monday & Thursday) Generally working on my Torso.... The time on the treadmill will help take care of my legs-and NO, I do not want my legs to get any bigger.
I've been fat my entire life, and I'm trying to break out of it....it kind of sucks because my family is onwe of those families that tends to hold you down (you know you're doing good when they say crap like "You know, that might not be good for you!" If you lose a little weight, they would rather see you get fat again, then have you lose the weight and make them look lazy.)
So anywa, I FEEL GREAT, and I'm using that as my "meter" to judge this by...I mean I feel GREAT!!!!!!!!!
So, now we come to question #2:
How long before I can start actually SEEING Results?
I'm just a big fat/soft guy....but considering I've never lifted I guess I am relatively strong (I can pick the front end of a Volkswagon Rabbit up enough so that the tires are over 6" off of the ground.)
(for my German friends, LOL! )
