  1. wooooo.... i'm back! lol

    It's been a while since my last update, but I need to let you guys in on my progress. As of 3/16/08 I weighed in at 266lbs and I feel great. My clothes are fitting better ( some are even too big ) and my strength has gone up tremendously.

    I can actually see my stomach shrinking and my chest growing (seems like other things are growing too!). I think my actually weight loss has been steady, but doesn't seem that high due to the muscle gain.

    I'm currently taking Animal Pak (multi) and Lipo6 for fat loss. I still take my protein in the morning as a meal replacement. I'm loving life guys (and gals)... I don't dread the gym anymore. It seems the more progress I make the more motivation I get.

    Sorry for the delay in posts, but I will def. keep you folks updated!


  2. [QUOTE=ilkyspony;1144822]I am 20 years old, 6'1", and I weigh 285lbs

    My goal is to be at 215lbs/10-15% Body Fat by approx. June 1st with a start date of 1/2/08. I plan on joining the Navy...[QUOTE]

    ilkyspony,

    Great goals, very admirable. I'm glad to see that you're aggressively pursuing your diet and training to achieve this goal. One thing I would advise you to do is to become familiar with the OPNAVINST on physical readiness. Also, talk to your recruiter to make sure your goal is going to get you where you want to go. At 6'1", 215 is too heavy by Navy standards. If I'm not mistaken, you need to be under 206 and less than 23% BF in order to ship out to boot camp. I don't know if this is waiverable or not, but check with your recruiter to make sure. Hope all goes well and keep on attacking the weights and hitting the cardio. Trust me, the more prepared you are, physically, for boot camp, the easier it will be all the way around.

  3. Yes sir, you would be correct in the saying I would be over-weight @ 215. But, according to both my Navy and USMC recruiter, it would be a matter of BF%. I would need to be taped and that is what I'm aiming for. I have a large frame so being close to 205 is going to make me look silly ( plus I have a big head lol ).



    That's a picture of me when I was around 230lbs. I def don't look fat IMO. Actually, I think I look skinny in that picture, but by most standards here I wouldn't be. If I could reach 230lbs, I can enlist by my BF%in the USMC according to my recruiter, I'm sure if the USMC will take me at that level the Navy would too if I decide to go that route.

    E****lent, you're way ahead of me. I'm not up on what's waiverable or not, and wasn't sure if a good rope-n-choke was all that was needed to ship. I do know that in the past, folks have been penalized for being 'overweight' when they were just built really muscular. I had heard they were taking steps to remedy that, but...

    You're right, you don't look fat. You carry 230 pretty well. Not to worry though, you'll def. come out of boot a lean, mean fighting machine. Good luck.

  5. Well, after a long hiatus... I'm back. I switched jobs for a month so it made things hard to do as far working out and what not. I'm back doing what I was doing before and getting into the swing of things. I'm down to around 260 lbs as of a couple weeks ago. I've noticed significant gains in muscle mass and strength, but weight loss has slowed.

    I'm currently taking:
    Animal Pak Multivitamin ( 1 pack daily )
    Optimum Whey protein ( usually just 1 for breakfast )
    Creatine supp. ( 11.xx grams with protein in morning as per intake ratio recommendation on package )
    L-Arginine ( 2 scoops = approx. 5 grams in morning with water )

    I just started taking Lipo-6 again, I had stopped taking it for a little over a month and since I still had a full bottle I decided to take it again.

    ** What do you guys think about this? I'm still hoping to get down to no less than 235lbs by the week of June 16th. I feel it's do-able! 25 lbs in 7 weeks seems like a reasonable goal I think. It's a little over 3 1/2 lbs a week.

  6. I think your goal is doable, They say to shoot for no more than 2lbs a week. I like to shoot for lofty goals as it really gets me trying really hard. If you give it all you got and you honestly know there was nothing else in your power that you could have done then you win either way. Good luck in your progress and we both have lofty goals to shoot for so lets get it done.

  7. What's your goal??

  8. I'm sitting at 203lbs right now at 25%. Im trying to get my bodyfat down to mid teens and take my weight to 185. 18lbs by July. It's crazy but I'm goin to try. My log is here if you want to take a look. No one really says anything or tells me what I should change. perhaps its because I am busy and dont really update like I should.
