Fat loss tracking thread O mine.

Fat loss tracking thread O mine.
Back in Jan. I was 238 with 42.5(ish) waist and 18inch arms flexed after a workout. I stand 5'8". I had a lot of strength but no endurance and a lot of body fat that did a lot of work on my ego. Had to wear even larger clothes than the normal fat guy. Lots of lower back issues among other things like sleeping without losing feeling in body parts was a chore,
Depression kicked in due to all this and other things that made me pretty much give up all hope in getting to a healthy weight where I felt comfortable. Reading this board and speaking with various people on it gave me the incentive and motivation to at least give it a try and do it with the goal of accomplishing my goals in a way that allowed me to have a lifestyle I could continue on with and one that would produce healthy results.
My goal is to reach a weight and BF% that will allow the sight of my abs and one that is reached I will do a long lean bulk to get to a 'size' i find both pleasing to me and comfortable to live with. I'm not even sure what these two weights will be but i'll know when I see it.
I'd like to thank AM.com
And many others. I'm sorry I couldn't list you all that helped but the ones(I know I'm missing some)above had talked to me in PM's and offered advice and resources and had their own obsticles they had overcome that I was able to use as strength to at least try to overcome mine...
This is long, I know, but I wanted to show that the advice and information was listened to and followed with the best ability and intentions and that most importantly. It was appreciated.
I haven't gone through a massive body recomp and i'm not a ripped BBr ready for a comp or a massive PL giant. But what I am is someone who gets up looking forward to working another day at reaching his goals and one who is able to tske his life back and place him back in control. And he's someone that's grateful that there were a bunch of people at a website that were willing to take the time out of their life and interupt their quest for knowledge and help a guy who wanted to know more but just needed a push. Thanks...
So I guess it's time to post some progress pics
Jan 238 42.5 waist 18 arms(pics from march where I was 233ish)
In april I was in the 215-219 range 38+inch waist
May at the beginning I was 205-209 with a 37 inch waist.
Tonight 30 May 193 and 36 inch waist and 16 3/4 inch arms flexed after workout

Not a huge undertaking or loss of fat or gain of muscle, I know I do feel good though and I am learning new things daily that i'm adding to my plans to bulk back up. This may take a while but I don't care. I'm enjoying myself and i'm happy that i'm getting to where I want to be and I have you all to thank.

looking awsome dude you have made some seriouse progress.
THat back double bi picture shows awsome definition starting to come out and looks like you have a ton of muscle underneath waiting to come out.
This as been done with liting and cardio or just cardio? I just got a little confused reading some replys and wasnt sure.
Awsome job man

One thing that I love about this site is that on your down days you can log on here and know that others are having the same problems.
Its good to know you are not on your own out there.
Its also a motivator to see your pics and watch your progress, I think we all know we can achieve our goals if we stick to it.
Well done on your progress Jayhawkk

Damn Hawkster, I had no idea that you made such a transformation. Great job, keep it up. Do you have progression pics to share with us? We take pics monthly, it really helps because you don't want to rely on the scale as the barometer of progress. You are adding muscle while losing fat Nice job!

Thanks guys I really appreciate it. As far what my routine was? It was complete diet change that started it and mostly weight training. I tried adding in cardio but felt the weight was coming off too fast so I stopped the cardio and added abs and lower back as a daily finisher.

I missed this thread earlier, but hell of a job Jay
You've definitely made outstanding progress.
(Pssssst! BTW, you have a toy motorcycle in the box, hanging on the wall )

I sent a PM to you Jay, don't know if it'll go through or not as I'm not sure of your board status. You've indicated you're a law enforcement official of some kind. Blatant uncensored pics like these on a board like this, whether you use illegal substances or not, probably isn't the best idea. I'd do some editing and blacking out if I were you and then repost.Originally Posted by Beowulf

Current stats are 35 waist 191 pounds and arms are back up to 17 inches. I think i'm gonna re-adjust and start dropping back down a little more. I'm wearing 34 waist jeans that are loose down from wearing 40's so that's nice

Well, I decided to go ahead and get some updated pics although i've been eating like **** the past week. Having serious stomach issues among a million other things not supp/weight related. Eating peanut butter and oatmeal/cream of wheat all day long has been my diet.

07-18-2006, 12:59 AM
You are looking great
Thanks for keeping us updated, as I have said before - you are a great inspiration and motivation for us all.

Likewise KG, you definately have made me keep things in perspective when I start feeling depressed with all this crap.
