Ok, I've been reading a lot on this site with some great stories and information. Somewhat addicted. I began my weight loss journey in January 2012 after gaining massive weight after high school. I am currently 32 years old and weigh 184 pounds at 6'. When I started I weighed 240 lbs of pure fat with a little muscle left underneath. Started with p90x and finished that losing a ton of weight (38 pounds in 3 months). But I wasn't happy because I didn't have much muscle definition and started to do research. I determined that I probably wasn't eating enough calories and lost a bunch of muscle along with fat. So I started eating a little more and focusing on macronutrient ratio. Currently doing close to 40/40/20 p/c/f but it varies day to day as I try to stay lower carb on rest days and higher on weight days. Eat lean protein along with protein shakes in between meals, fibrous carbs, a few complex carbs (oatmeal, brown rice, etc...) and healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, etc.. After p90x I completed the Insanity but didn't like it too much as it had no weights. Now I lift weights three times a week (followed by low intensity cardio) and do springing intervals 2 twice a week.
What I can't decide is if I should stop losing weight and began adding muscle or try to shift to slow recomposition? Still have a little stubborn fat on lower and and back but this seems to not want to go anywhere!!!
Below are before and after pics from 1 year of getting it together!!
