My 1 Year Transformation
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!!

Great job man! Very inspiring.

Actually the p90x just kick started the weight loss but the most changes came from lifting weights plus after cardio and sprinting intervals. That's when the muscle definition started showing...
Diet has been fairly clean thought just changed amount of calories in vs out, etc..

Re: My 1 Year Transformation
Bossome work there. Definitely a motivational success story. Not the p90x. Just your willingness to take control of your life.

When I first stated I used oxy elite pro but stopped taking that after a couple of months. Now I use whey protein shake, multivitamin, fish oil, and fiber. Also take yohimbine in morning.
Been thinking about trying alphamine to get ride of the last remaining back fat / lower abs.

I'd keep doing what you are doing now, especially if you feel good! How many calories a day are you taking in?
02-02-2013, 04:09 PM
I try to take in 2200 calories on average for the week Of course, some days I will take it real low (like 1200) and some days (on cheat days) I will have 4000 - 5000. I look at it weekly a adjust accordingly as long a I have enough calorie deficiency at the end of the week to lose 1 to 1.5 lbs per week.

Also forgot. This was all done with dumbbells, door way pull up bar, and treadmill in garage. I wish I had a gym anywhere close to me but I don't so have to make do. Saving up to get a bench and barbell.

Very impressed myself! I am working with someone right now who joined me last week, his goal is 125 lbs this year. He is a large man at 20 years old, and tired of it. It will be a very hard journey for him, because he will have to change his life completely. I will use your story in more motivation for him, thanks for the post!

Amazing! I vote to add muscle. you're already very lean, most people would be very jealous of your condition so add some pounds to that frame!!

Don't worry about that little bit of stuborn lower back fat. Start putting on some nice muscle mass. Id go with a nice lean bulk.
