    Monsta65 starts journey to weight loss


    Im tired of being obese and its time for a change. Today is the next turn in my life to become healthier and change my life and life style. Im excited for this journey. I have always felt embarressed to write on here about myself and the weight problems but I really think that this will be helping me out through my journey. I will be posting pictures hopefully tonight if my wife is able to fix the camera going to the computer.
    Here are my starting measurements.
    Weight- 335- sad I know this is very disgusting and I should have never let this happen to myself.
    Stomach- 53 5/8"
    Waist-51"
    Chest-53"
    Thigh-30"
    Calf-19 5/8"
    Bicep (not flexed-straight arm)-16 5/8"
    Forearm (not flexed)- 13 1/8"
    Neck- 20"

    This morning I started this journey with a 30 min fast walk on the treadmill, I ate the way a diet plan told me to eat, and then after worked I did a chest workout that lasted about 45 min. Hope this also helps people that were in my place and hope they arnt ashamed like I was and I still am.

    I'm with ya brother, I'm glad your sharing with us! It's a long but worthwhile process, what's your goal weight and how many days a week are you planning on training?

    thanks guy i appreciate it and many people will say this and not mean it but I truly mean it when I say, my life is going to be changing and its for the right this time not the wrong, im thinking of either updating everyday and letting you guys know how i feel and stuff or do you think a weekly thing is better? I know im going to update weekly on my weight, measurements and pictures.

    Hey man,

    I am on that same journey. Just remember to stay consistent and set weekly goals. If you keep looking at 245, it'll seem far away but set goals for inches and lbs weekly. I am down 40 lbs from 310 to 270. I want to be at 235 but slow and steady is the course. I will post my own photos in a separate log soon. Cheers and here's to you!

    thanks hubba i appreciate it and congrats on your weight loss and just keep it up. I was waiting to set some goals weekly after I find out how much i can lose in that time, if that makes any sense.

    Just remember its a lifestyle change! You'll hear it a million times but its true! I started at 264 a year ago dropped to 218 by thanksgiving and hit 188 last week! Eat healthy and do work! Everything you do gets you closer or further from ur goal!

    just got done with my workout "Back". I was feeling a little drained but didnt give up and fought through it and finished. really overall a great workout I sweated like a pig. this was day 2 of my diet and training transformation, I did a 30 minute fast walk in the morning then went to work and now lift. feeling pretty good muscle wise, like i said just a little drained but figured that it will be like this for a week or two

    this is day three i did my 30 min cardio as usual when i first get up and have to say that today wasnt as hard as monday and tuesday. I have a little bit of lower back pain but probably because of my weight and i did a back workout last night. Tonight I have biceps and triceps for my workout. the diet is still going good my mind was thinking of the junk food that I used to eat but i didnt get tempted.

    Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, THAT is strength.
