been checking out this board for awhile.. signed up today...
OK in a nutshell I am 6'2 6'3 and in April I went to the Dr. and weighed in at a whopping 275lbs Yes.. Luckily I have a pretty wide frame and my weight seems distributed evenly, all my friends could not believe I weighed 275lbs.. I then cut out all my beloved Mt.Dew and alot of other fatty foods and cleaned the diet a bit.. bought a Mountain bike.. Currently I am weighing in at 250lbs.. not shabby for not working to hard..
Here is my goal and you guys can tell me if I am over reaching or not.. Next summer I want to go to the beach and if not have Abs showing, atleast have a board flat stomache.. I want to build up body some (not freakish)..
My problem is I have NEVER been a gym member before and to be honest.. weight excercises and even the directions on websites confuse the heck out of me.. OK 3 sets of 12 do I do twelve, then another exercise then twelve more? or rest for a minute then 12 more?
At any rate.. I need some diet help like if I could see some of you guy's diet plans like what you eat daily.. so I can devise my own.. I am about to leave to finally cross the obstacle and join the Gym.. (Gold's.. its close to home so I can hit it often with little excuses).
I don't care if I have to hit the gym daily, eat rice cakes for the rest of my life, etc.. I am determined and when I put my mind to something I WILL get it, I just want to do it healthy and something I can live with forever I know diet is more of a lifestyle change then a fad do this for 6 weeks deal.. been there never worked well anyway.. I really don't miss the food I use to eat Although I still partake in some occasionally.. but the Soda.. I traded it in for water and now soda taste so damn sweet I can hardly drink one.. No less my normal 6 Mt.Dew a day (Hey I am a IT worker, its pretty normal)..
Any help is well appreciated... Ok Off to the gym.. wish me luck
