I know guys.
Eyedentist made those abs in the kitchen.
I'm just in denial that I have to let some things go for a while and I'm just not happy about it.
I have been on a diet for the last 10 years.....any freakin thing I want.
I know that my diet is the problem coupled with lack of exercise.
Your words will help me face the truth.
Thank you for your honesty.
To answer your questions:
1. Body fat percentage has not been measured recently but if I go by past measurements and a guess, I would say 40%. (I weighed 145 lbs when I graduated HS)
2. Powerlifting is not for me now because of my tendancy to overdo it. I built a new house last year and moved in in SEPT 2015 then had to take 7 mo off to heal because I tore the tendons off both arms while I was moving my junk.
It was serious tennis elbow and some other stuff that goit stretched and pulled too far. Very painful healing.
I CANNOT GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN.
EyeDentist is right. It will take a year.
Fat as I am it might take 10 years.
The truth is that this needs to become a lifestyle change for me. This working out needs to become a part of daily thing.
That's why I am up at 6 am and don't have to go to work until 2 pm. I plan to bang out my gym time early.
6 small meals, last mean 400 calories or less. 7-8 hours sleep per day.
One thing I failed to mention is that I do love salad and vegetables so I plan to eat plenty.
Fish and chicken will be constant.
I will lay off the ribeye steaks for a while and if I do have one, I will eat the steak as 2 meals maybe 3.
Amen PowerPuff - No truer words ever spoken. lol
I really appreciate the advice folks.
I feel confident you will tell me what you think and not sugar coat it.
I feel better already going into this because of your words.
I appreciate the encouragement as well.
The main thing- I have never wanted it more than I do now.
I am going to focus mostly on being in the gym everyday 5 days a week slowly intensifying my work.
I did this 13 years ago and recall that I could not sleep until I went to the gym.
Failure is never an option.
I don't plan on being the fat superman anymore.
200 lbs would be really nice.
Haven't seen that since 28.
That's my goal 200-220lb range.
I am still going to make cheesesteaks for my friends and watch them eat them while I have a little chicken and no bread. Seeing the joy on their faces makes it all worth while. The mango key lime pie always hits the spot at the end for the sweet tooth people. I'm going to carry eyedentists word around in my head.
