I forgot this forum even existed. After the "be honest, who's fat" thread, I decided to come over here and start lurking. Anyway, Im gonna try and get serious about this health, eating, and working out shit.

For the longest time Ive been having issues with sleep and everything. Back in early December, I went to a new Dr and he basically said I cant sleep because I have too much anxiety, I show signs on depression, and because Im becoming a fat piece of shit. Anyway, he gave me some anti-depressants (Elavil), said I need to go really work out (not just weights, but challenging cardio), cut ties with people (read: women) that are causing stress, and find a hobby to relax my mind.

I figure, I'll make working out my hobby and kill two birds with one stone. All I eat is fish, chicken breast, steak, rice, soups, veggies, fruit, etc. Cut out burgers, fried everything, Mexican food, soda, gooey cheesey stuff, etc.

Been using this 3-day workout for the past month. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/matt89.htm .. Thinking of trying the 4-day now. Also doing 30 mins of carido at least 5 times a week. 3 Mile run or 35 mins on elliptical..

Took this pic awhile back, but this is basically how I looked on Dec 4.. 200lbs.


Took this pic today.. 187lbs..


If I can get down to 175ish, Ill be like I was 12 years ago after graduating boot camp \:D

I'm not a big fan of that routine, but if it's working for you, there's no real reason to change it.

If you do, I suggest you start here:

Yeah, it's not TERRIBLE by any means. But I'm just not a fan of such high reps. It doesn't tend to build dense, hard muscle, but softer, more bloated muscle. Plus, lower reps make you hulk strong!

Definitely check out Starting Strength as mentioned. But no matter what you do make sure it has squats, bench, overhead press and deadlifts.

For cardio, try to hit up some sprints a few times a week instead of doing slow/medium pace jogging all the time. If you can sprint outside, do it. If you can't, you can use the incline on the treadmill to still give yourself a brutal workout. 20 minutes total for warmup/cooldown is plenty if your going all out.

Since you're coming back from long layoff, make sure you are warming up good, stretching a lot and foam rolling if you have one at the gym.

Agreed w/ it seems like you're well on your way. Just stick with it and the results will follow. I would personally recommend counting your calories for about a week just so you have a ballpark as to where you are. Eat what you normally do and see where you stand. From there, you can adjust accordingly to reach your goals.

Yea, Im gonna need to start packing my own lunches. I go out to lunch with coworkers everyday, and some of the places they go really make it near impossible to get a lunch that isnt 1k calories. My dinner and breakfasts are fine, but eating out for lunch is my undoing.

Just getting my home (well garage) gym setup. Built out a power rack, flat bench, and Vulcan USA bumper plates (ooh pretty colors!) with 28.5 mm Olympic bar. No more gym membership for me. Fucking stoked.
