Hi. I am 26 and I weigh about 220 and am 6 feet tall. about two years ago I was roughly 175 and I would love to get back down to that weight or even less. My main goal is weight loss. I have been looking around and my oldest brother is a body builder and a doctor and recommended me to this site. I would use him as my personal coach but he lives all the way on the other side of the country from me and is very busy so I don’t really want to bug him too much. I have a hard time sticking with things but I am really trying to motivate myself to do allot of things right now to better my life and a better body, and with it better self esteem, I will be going in a good direction.
I have been looking at allot of programs and I have the P90x Program and am interested in starting that up soon but I have some questions. I want to know if it would be better for me to do a different program or just cardio or something if my main goal is to slim down. I don’t know exactly if the P90x will do all of that for me or not. I live a pretty sedimentary lifestyle when I am at home since I paint and play computer games allot.
I have just started a diet of sorts. I have a pretty bad metabolism due to weird sleep hours and eating habits. I almost never ate breakfast and would eat a lunch and dinner and then snack and drink soda. About 2 weeks ago I stopped drinking soda and started drinking water. I also started drinking 8 ounces of fat free milk mixed with slimfast when I get up and then one small meal. I know I should be doing another slimfast but I usually don’t…
There is a gym just up the street from me and I am going to check them out tomorrow so I have that option and I am able to get all the small components to start the P90x if it really will do what I want it to do.
My ideal is to lose the weight as fast as I can and after reading around it doesn’t seem like losing 50-60 pounds in 3 months is undoable and that would be ideal since there are some things that I would like to do in that 3-4 months away time period and I would love to have a good body by then. Also I wanted to know if while doing the P90X it is recommended to do extra cardio and would that actually help slim me down faster and when would be the best time to work out? I know I have read something about doing stuff right when you wake up but I cant remember if that was food related or workout related. Sorry if this is all disjointed and kind of rambly but any and all help would be much appreciated.
