Joined here back in 03 when I found out at 38 I would need to go on HRT. I was trying to find out any information I could about my condition. Since then I've had ups and downs but am back on track and have my butt in the gym. I've been reading a lot of the log's here and the great advice/motivation that everyone gives.
I started this latest journey back in late March / Early April when I decided I really need to make a change in my life. I weighed in at a whopping 375 at 5'11". To say I was shocked would be an understatement. I joined my local crossfit affiliate - Derby City Crossfit and with their help I'm now down to 338 as of this morning. The coaches there are really good and work one on one with you to design a program that fits you and your goals.
Currently I'm doing my second go round of the 5/3/1 program three days a week on Tue, Th, Sat. usually lifting at the Y. Then on M, W, F, I go down to CF and push the prowler, drag the sled, work with sandbags, KB's etc... I walk at night a few nights a week and try and get out on the weekend and either hike or bike.
My goal is to be at a healthy maintainable weight by this time next year. Ideally I'd like to be in the 235-245 range. Which would put me in about the 12% - 15% BF range according to a hydrostatic weight I had done at UofL's EP lab.
My Current Stat's are:
My Current Diet my coach gave me looks like this:
Calories: < 3,000
Carbs: < 80
I do pretty well on this during the week, but weekends are usually not as strict and when I have a cheat day. I really need to tighten it up, but I'm a carboholic. I have cut out fast food, and diet drinks. I used to have a Diet Mountain Dew in my hands at all times. Now it's water or unsweet tea with lemon.
