Little Background: I moved from Janesville, WI to Orlando, FL June 7th, 2012. It was my intention the whole time that when I moved here, I was going to set goals to myself to get down to a safe weight and then see if I can bulk up any.
The moment I got to Orlando, I knew that I definitely had to accomplish this goal haha. It was AMAZING to truly see how overweight WI is to other states, they're not just statistics!
I weighed myself June 7th, I was 232 pounds. That was the HIGHEST I have ever weighed (besides that, I was 228 a couple years back). So, the combination of being the heaviest I had ever been and being in a new environment, I decided I might as well start this lifestyle change.
My hope is to get down to 185 (I picked this because last year I was down to 183 and felt it was a pretty good weight), and then start gaining muscle where I would eventually like to be around 200-210 fit. I don't know if that's a good weight or what, I've never worked out to gain muscle, only to lose weight. So, when the time comes, I guess I'll have a lot more questions for ya'll!
Here's my progression thus far:
Start: (I didn't weigh myself in June because I was just getting moved & situated in Orlando so I figured I'd start weighing myself in July)
June 7th: 232 lbs
July 1st: 220.6
July 8th: 216.4
July 15th: 216.4
July 22nd: 212.4
July 29th: 210.6
August 5th: 211.0
August 12th: 209.6
August 19th: 207.0
August 26th: 204.0
Obviously, I weigh myself weekly. I also plan on taking progression pictures every 1st of the month (no i won't reveal those, you guys have never done anything so horrible to deserve that).
I've been working out 7 days a week, haven't had a single day off in July actually. Currently eating around 1500 calories (not including drinks), and have been using MyFitnessPal quite a lot to get certain information down. Only vitamins are I take are Omega-3 (thanks Granny!), multi-vitamin, and green tea.
Any suggestions, feel free to share! Any questions, feel free to ask me Personal questions though, I don't know SHIT about being healthy lmao, you don't want my advice! I suppose I could give you my opinion though . Otherwise, that's what you all are for!
