In 2008 I weighed 265lbs at 6' and a size 44 at the waist on pants and a xl or xxl shirt. But in total I had lost 80lbs by April 2010 and weighed 185 started with walking/running outside then in the gym cardio and cable weight 3-4 times a week. However, being that all my life I've been overweight I felt I looked weird being that slim. So, in the past year I've graduated myself from the cable weights and moved into the other room at the gym. I ened up gaining some weight back up to 225lbs, then in the past month dropped it off, and now I'm back to 203lbs.
While I haven't kept up with my diet as much as I'd like to I'm trying to get more serious about building some lean muscle. The majority of my excessive fat is in my love handles, so I started dieting again. I use 100% hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate after workouts which is about 72grams of protein, a good multi vitamin.
I spend about 1 hr to 1 hr 30 mins a day 5 days a week at the gym. Which usually consists of streching, 30 mins of cardio and the rest weights. Mon chest, back, abs/Tues shoulders arms/Wed legs/Thurs & Fri whatever I feel I need to work on. While I've noticed major differences in my appearance, it would still be great to get some suggestions on losing fat while building muscle.
Here are some before and after pics.
