Just joined after reading through a posts for a couple days. As the title suggests I'm a fatbody who has just made the committment to change.
Weight: 326 lbs
Hoping you can all help me out as I'm dire need of it (as you can see). I've had quite a few medical setbacks in the last three years and put on approx 80 lbs during that time. I've been in the hospital for broken foot, kidney stones twice, ruptured 2 disks, and tore up my MCL.
My body fat is 29% via waist - neck measurements (48 - 19). I feel that I'm somewhat fit (cardio wise) but don't have much strength. Goal is 18% or about 220 lbs.
I ride a bike (stationary and outdoors) quite a lot and have just started lifting. A typical workout for me is 45 mins on the bike at 170 bpm when on the stationary or about 20 miles X 5 times a week when the weather gets warmer and I cycle to work. I've also been hitting the treadmill and do a 17 minute 1.5 mile. Goal is 13:30.
For strength measurements I'm using pushup/situps. At present I can do 26 pushups and 21 situps. Goal is 50 of each.
I just started logging my food intake this week and I'm averaging about 1484 cals with a split of 44/27/29 (carb/prot/fat). This has lost me 3 lbs this week.
I've also ordered some supplements VPX Redline, Thyrocutts II, and Humangro.
Come Monday I'll start lifting and doing 45 min cardio and trying to reduce the fat/increase protein in my diet.
