Hey guys I just want to let everyone know that I am going to be getting a new scale for tomorrow mornings weigh in. The scale I actually have been using since I first started has been crap. Id have to weigh myself 4 or 5 times then avg out my weight to what it was. Im just tired of doing it and I know I should have bought one when I first started this weight loss. This scale was so bad I would weigh in at 316 then a few seconds later id restep on the scale and id be 324. So to be honest my starting weight may have been higher then when I first started at or it could have been lower. Tomorrow I will let you know what my true weight is and this scale is going to be a very good one. Cant wait and I do know over all I have lost quite a bit of weight.

OK I got my new scale. My real actual weight is 323 on the new scale. I weighed myself on the other scale were id take my average and my weights went from 312 to 318. So I do know for sure I was still losing weight but seeing that im at 323 and I re weighed my self on it a couple of times and it stayed the same weight, It was kinda upsetting but im good and I will keep going because I do know that I have lost the weight. Im going to be doing my cardio right now and sorry for the scale problem. and my mirror is working fine because I can tell I am losing weight next monday morning I will be posting pictures

Just got done with my 30 min. cardio and like I said before I turn it up a little everytime. Today WOW it felt great but had to take faster longer strides to keep up. Really sweating like a pig today but know its great. Ever since I weighed myself right when I got up and seen what I actually weigh and just want to tell you guys I was even bigger then what I started out at which is really scary because 335 is a lot of weight but on my new scale that is accurate I was probably 8 lbs heavier and its scary thinking I weighed that much. Im still fighting and will keep on fighting im just so disgusted in myself that I was probably close to 345 which is down right scary weight. THANKS for all the support guys I appreciate it

Just as long as your pants keep gettin looser and looser, your doin the right thing. That's why its important to have a working mirror
Anyway dude keep your hands up and chin down and keep fighting through it. Your gonna have good days and bad days...just think of today as a bad day and tare it from there...or just that your starting weight now is 335 and your just got a head start on the weight loss!! Lol
What's ypir diet like if you don't mind my asking? I thought i saw that you said you were gonna eat healthy but what's your actual diet lol
04-22-2013, 09:42 AM
and the carbs are the healthy ones like oatmeal, brown rice, whole grain bread ETC

If fat decreases and muscle increases, body weight may not reflect a change. Don't sweat the numbers so much. Your body weight fluctuates +/- several pounds each day due to cellular water retention, poo, piss, etc.

Everyone else pretty much covered it but ill say it again anyway lol go by the mirror and don't sweat the scale so much.

Don't let the numbers discourage you (easier said than done, I know). Where you're going is more important than where you started.

try adding avacados and cold water fish into your meals whenever you can...ie: use an avacado and chicken breast a in between meal and then eat cod or salmon or something else of the like for lunch and dinner.
just a thought, but right now your doing great so it might be better to not fix something that isnt broken lol

i was just scratching my head myself on some of the macros..
unless you are doing whey isolate or egg whites, you won't get to 60g protein w/o any carbs or fats (and there is no such thing as 100% pure protein in a powder, despite marketing efforts..fat cannot be entirely eliminated in an isolate, it's impossible)
and somewhat the same on carbs: 70g carbs with no fats? unless you are doing dextrose or some simple sugar, or some plain rice cakes, you will be hard-pressed to have pure carbs (the things you mention above oats/bread/rice etc all contain some amount of fat)
i just dint wanna say anything at this point, as there needs to be a semblance of order in which you tackle things here
getting in the groove and making lifestyle changes, exercising, and a general cleaning up the diet and making good dietary choices are all priority #1..
but yes at some point, you will want to make an effort to further understand nutrition, as that will be the most powerful life-changing force you can ever experience in regards to altering your physical composition

Thanks guys I appreciate it. And I actually do use some avocados in some of my meals. As for the protein I do use egg whites, chicken breasts, ground turkey, ground beef the 93/7, steaks etc like that

Eat more fat. Grass fed butter, coconut oil, liquid MCT oil, olives (moderation) bacon grease, eggs.

I knew that both were good (mono and polyunsaturated) but logic would have...
If a single unsaturated lipid is capable of mobilizing fat from fat cals to be utilized as energy and other metabolic functions...would polys be able to do so at a higher rate or greater extent?
Im good with biochem and other physiology but when it comes to diets Im just awful and none of it really makes sense especially with all the new fads and new contrainfo and nay-studies that come out on bi-daily basis. I don't know how you dieticians do it and keep up with it.
Anyway rant/hijack over. Keep killing it monsta!

Polyunsatured fats are unstable and easily oxidized. Omega 6 and Omega 3 polyunsaturated fats are essential in small amounts, and dangerous in higher amounts. Most Americans are deficient in Omega 3 PUFAs and get way too much Omega 6 PUFAs. This is a result of feeding our livestock grain-based diets instead of their natural grass diets, not eating much fish, and a misguided fear of saturated fat that has led to people eating high amounts of unhealthy high-omega 6 vegetable oils.
For anyone interested, The Perfect Health Diet has quickly become my favorite book on nutrition and I highly recommend it. It's very well-researched. The book recommends .5 - 1lb of high omega 3 fish (e.g. salmon) per week to cover your omega 3 needs (I also use some ground flaxseed), and minimize omega 6. You'd practically have to eat 0 fat for an extended period of time to experience an omega 6 deficiency. The book points to monounsatured fat and saturated fat as the only sources of calories that are not toxic to the body in high amounts. Hence butter and coconut oil are about as safe as food gets. Olive oil is pretty good, too--it's mostly monounsaturated with a small amount of polyunsaturated fat, which is okay if you're minimizing other PUFA sources. I treat pretty much any other vegetable oil like poison.

Although the nutrition science discussed here is super valuable, it can be overwhelming, at least for me. Work on getting your macros in order, then start to fine tune your sources of calories and nutrients. We're changing our habits and that takes time. Look at the big stuff and then dig deeper into the minutiae. Just my 10 cents and what I'm trying to do.
04-22-2013, 10:28 PM
yea it can get a little overwhelming. and thanks man I know you are going through wat i am ur just ahead quite a ways

If its produce...its prolly safe
If its some form of lean meat...its prolly safe
As long as your diet is based off those two staples your golden!
The work your putting in Will take care of itself! Don't get overwhelmed with anything and just keep doi what your doin! You just have a bunch if bros in iron here that wanna see you reach your goals and succeeded at being awsome! Your gonna get lots of advice that your not sure what your gonna do with it or how it applies to you..so just write it down somewhere and forget about it until your in a point in your training/where it is relevant.

That said, I would have appreciated knowing earlier on that steak, whole eggs, potatoes, and white rice are great, healthy dietary staples.

Just be responsible with it. Remember your still a big boy and your body and joints are throwing around And handling alot of weight that its not used to doing. Its gonna wanna fight back sometime lol. It happens to everybody I've ever trained or worked with that's in your shoes.
Just take a few days off...maybe get a tens unit if you can find one and keep a hot pack on it. You'll loosen back up and yoill jump back into feline like a million bucks after a couple days off
04-24-2013, 12:09 AM
