    So, heres my quick background...

    June of last year, I took a good look at myself and I was very unhappy. I was at the biggest I had been. I had my top weight of 281 lbs. I started to slowly work in to running which didn't last long because of shin splints. So I got a membership at a local Gym and started putting my ass on the Eliptical everynight for a half hour. This lasted for about 3 months. I went from 281 to 245.

    However, I ran into some snags in life and I quit working out, and I stayed at about 255 for around 9 months. I would go to the gym on and off during that time maybe a 5-8 days a month. Fortunately that kept me from ballooning way back up hah.

    Anyways, the last two and a half months I have been working hard at it again, and have been lifting almost nightly. I plateaued right around 240-244 for nearly three weeks. That is when I started to eat better. I got myself on a pretty good diet, and have been pretty strict with it for two weeks. I was able to break the plateau and moved down to 237. This was a great accomplishment for me. It's been years since I was under 240.

    To the part people want to see, my progress pictures. The first one is current, and the second one is from around August of last year, I was at 266 at the time.

    I have a long way to go to where I want to be, but I feel that I have made it a long way from where I was. :hs:

    nice progress, try not to let shit get in the way of your training and diet. It'll be hard but always worth it.

    Lifting almost nightly? I don't think that's such a good idea for a beginner. I would say 4 times a week should be the most you lift when you're just starting out. I also find that when people are just starting out and they go to the gym every day that they often relapse into not going because it's such a difficult schedule to maintain.

    That aside, awesome progress. It's amazing how much better you look now. Keep up the good work.

    well, I don't have a license right now, and no g/f at the moment. so if I don't go to the gym I have nothing else to do. so it's a very easy schedule. i look forward to it every day.

    .

    I did that just to update my pics once every few months. It's neat to see the transition from fatass to... less of a fatass?
