Eventually The Shirt Has To Come Off

  1. Eventually The Shirt Has To Come Off


    I'm a "bit" chubby, but I don't want to be. What can I say? I looovveee to eat.

    "I can resist anything but temptation" as the saying goes

    I'm also not super accountable to my weight loss efforts when left to my own devices. I wanted to create a log where I have to share my weight and workouts every day to hopefully incur some kind of social consequence to me not sticking to my goal. I, however, do not want to be the guy to post my workouts to IG/FB with Fitspiration hashtags. #neverstopgrinding

    Goals

    I've always wanted single digit bodyfat. There's just something that seems cool about having that lean, crisp look.

    Goal Weight (to start, we will see how I look when I get there): 190 lbs

    How
    -workout every day
    -moderate calorie deficit (20-25%)
    -Post my workout and weight here every day.


    Buuuuuuttt I don't want to give up my social life/completely go full bodybuilder either, so I would ideally also just like to adopt a healthy and maintainable lifestyle.


  2. Kicking things off:

    Weight - 223.8 lbs

    Workout
    Rope Push Down 145x8, 145x6x6
    Hammer Curl: 50x8, 50x6x6
    Lateral Raises 7 minutes (20x100)
    •   
       


  3. Great goal man, will follow along!

  4. This community is about progress. If you look like a jelly donut now, no one cares. You'd be surprised, sometimes we tend to imagine that because this is a forum about fitness/bodybuilding /etc we think everyone on here is super fit. That's not entirely true, there are some really fit people on here but that's not the majority of people on here
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

  7. Dude you really don't have very far to go, that bicep vein will be popping pretty soon I'm sure.

  8. Eeeeyy I hope so. I remember watching a video (I think it was Alberto Nunez) where someone famously said "We're always fatter than we think we are" ahahaha. Truth - When I weighed 300 lbs I thought I'd be ripped at 220. Oops

    Eeeeehhhh midterms are a tough time. That, and job searching/extra things on the side have been keeping me busy...but mostly hungry

    Not super proud, but I'm here to face the music (though I definitely did not want to admit it). I'm back on track and have made some adjustments that have worked in the past for me and hopefully they'll work again (working out a bit less hard leangains RPT style to keep me from getting too hungry, IF, and walking).
