So... Where do I start. I guess an introduction. Hello, my name is Brad. I have just recently started to diet/workout/supplement. One year ago I weighed 195 (im six foot tall). As of last week (Monday Jan 28th) I was 245 (ouch).
I'm getting married in may and want to drop some, if not all the weight I have gained in the year by May 24th (a push from the future Mrs. didnt hurt either). I have started counting calories ,currently taking in 1690 or less a day, doing cardio (5 days a week, 35-45 mins a time (about 660 cals according to the machines), lifting weights in cycles (one day arms, legs, back etc.), and supplementing with whey protein shakes (3 servings a day... one mid after noon and a double after workout), Lipo 6x used as directed 2 pills twice daily, and a once a day multi vitamin geared towards weight loss.
In about one week I have gotten down to 238.8 (as of monday feb. 4th), but that was just from the pills and little cardio. this has been the first week i have gone to the gym (started on Feb 4th, will be going M,T,W,F,S)
It seems as if you guys (and gals) Have a lot of usefull knowledge that maybe i could benifit from.
Should i change what im doing at all? Should I "Stack" (if so please explain in lehmens terms b/c i have no ideas about this stuff, just learning)???
Any help would be appreciated and I will keep everyone informed as to my progress. Pics, as bad as they might be now, will be up by this weekend.
Also, please tell me streight up if my goal of 50 lbs is realistic... i dont know if it is or not... i am very disiplined and will do whatever it takes!
Thanks in advance!!!!
