    Well, seems I've finally been able to stick to the gym for more than a week. For the past 3 years I would randomly attempt going to the gym but would only do the treadmill since my goal is weight loss. I always gave up after a week or two.

    A month ago I started going to the gym with a friend and we only did weights. That has been the motivation I needed. I'm still a fatass obviously, haven't really lost much fat that I can tell but it's great to see my arms and shoulders getting bigger. Two weeks ago I started adding in 15 minutes/1 mile on the treadmill(kicks my ass). I'm currently doing 2 muscle groups a day.

    For example, day 1: Chest and biceps, day 2: back and triceps, day 3: Shoulders and legs. At the end I get on the treadmill...except on leg days, leg excersices destroy me. I'm 5'10", 258 lbs...down 10 lbs from when I started.

    My eating isn't the best. I try to get 3 decent meals per day as I don't have time to prep 5 or 6 meals per day. I'm still doing a lot better than I was 3 months ago of eating mostly fast food and no excersice what so ever. So, anybody care to throw some tips/critique? Right now I'm feeling good with my workout, I'm sure I could do a hell of a lot better but I could be a lot worst.

    without dissecting your workout plan, i noticed that you have a lack of motivation.

    plan to do this for at least the next 6-9months, or quit

    Like I said, before I didn't have any motivation. Now I do as I'm actually seeing results as far as muscle buildup. Plus, in the last week I've had two different girls surprised at my arms when we were fooling around. :mamoru: Can't get better motivation than that. :bigthumb:

    Hells yeah! Sounds like you're getting all the motivation you need!

    10lbs in a month is a great place to start. Especially if you're noticing muscle growth at well. You prolly lost 20lbs of fat, and gained 10lbs of muscle.

    Just make sure you keep the intensity up. As long as you're pushing your body as hard as you can, which it sounds as if you are, just keep going.

    G'luck!

    Keep in mind that you've lost a net of 10 pounds, but in reality, you've gained pounds of muscle, and lost that much in fat as well. So you've lost well more than 10 pounds of fat...

    I was going with a friend but I push myself more when I'm by myself. Plus, he likes to talk a lot. :nono:

    I give my workout partner hell. Its funny to piss him off and then show him up when we're lifting. :bowdown:

    Sticking with the plan is actually harder then liting itself
