Completely on a newbi level and was wondering what would be a good starting point to gain great results. I understand that this is not something that will happen overnight and am willing to put in the time and effort necessary to get the desired results. As of now I am six foot,two inches tall and 268.8 lbs. While my exact fat percentage is unknown I would rate it fairly high even though I have a large frame.
My desired end results are to lose weight to average around 230-240 with adding quite a bit of muscle. On may 27th I stepped on the scale to the tune of 297, since then I have dropped my caloric intake to 1300-1500 a day (consisting of an average 55% carbs, 25%protein, and 20% fat. As of now no supplements other than multi-vitamin) and have been somewhat pleased with the diet results but I would like to start a good workout regime to add muscle and get into shape.
I have lost weight twice in the past eight years to my goal weight but have lacked the tone and muscle I want, so I am attempting a complete shift in lifestyle now that will keep me where I want to be. Two hurdles that are present is that I have two small children and only available time to workout would come late in the evening or early in the morning before I go to work, the second being that I would like to have the ability to start off for the first few months in the house if optimal.
