Hi everyone I’m a LONG time Lurker. I’ve learned so much from this site, and its been a great asset on my body transformation journey.
I’m entering the final stretch of my body fat loss, and i’m pretty much in uncharted territory. I don’t recall ever being this light. and I’m VERY excited to keep moving forward!
I’m looking for feedback on what I’m doing, insight from anyone who’s done it before, and of course pointers
Start Date 03/05/07
Start Weight 304 lbs
Start Bodyfat %: unknown
Current Weight: 185.2lbs (4/28/08)
I jumped right into it full bore. I’m the type of person that can stick to anything I’m interested in and ride it out. I purchased Fitday to track my food intake, as well as a digital scale.
I track everything possible that goes into my body.
To also help calculate energy balance i bought a polar heart rate monitor so i can have a better idea of calories burnt during exercise.
I’m pretty much on track, I rarely have splurge days and most are planned, and my continuing learning has helped me make better decisions when i do.
