First workout after 10 days off. Just did bi's and tri's. Kept the weight low, but the shoulder felt ok. The real test will be on Thursday when I do chest. I did one set of the bar to see if I had any pain and my shoulder seemed ok. I may narrow my grip a little bit when I do bench. It'll be more tri and less chest, but it will be less stress on my shoulder.
Has anyone noticed that when you get towards the bottom of the protein container every shake seems to give you the shits? I have a theory though. I think a lot of the artificial sweeter falls to the bottom and that is what is causing it. I just use the Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate.
I walk a lot but I don’t eat too restrained.
Cool I’m gonna take up bike riding more and try and do some resistance band and body weight workouts just not sure how to start I’ll look up some apps. The keeping a note idea is good.Well, you have about 122,500 Calories to lose. It's totally doable. Start restraining your eating and drinking to cut out sugar, alcohol, unnecessary snacking. Pick up some sort of vigorous exercise like running, cycling, swimming, elliptical. Keep a journal of what you're eating and how much exercise you're getting, plus regular intervals of weighing yourself in the morning.
If you're generally healthy and able-bodied to run, try the Couch to 5k program. There's an app that will guide you along.
Starting weightlifting will improve your body composition as well.
Try a 100% whey isolate rather than a concentrate/isolate blend if you're having digestive problems (from ON that'd be Platinum Hydro Whey, but there are less expensive options too).
So I know Tesseract said this thread was lacking content, so hopefully you guys like this. It's been almost a full year since I started getting back into fitness more seriously. I went from a disgusting 219 to a skinning 152 and now maintaining at 161. The end goal is to be a ripped 165 or 170. I documented all my weight loss, in a text document on my PC desktop. I hope you like the little notes I included when I hit certain milestones.

Excellent work bro, significant change. What’s the game plan for your next goal?

Rogue’s annual sale is on if anyone’s looking for equipment. Echo Bike is a great all-around cardio device that I’ve been training with a lot lately, and their plates and racks are quality too.
I'm back but October wasn't as sober as intended. I cut out the green, processed carbs, caffeine significantly and after 5 days crashed hard. Oh well, I am here to hold myself accountable. It has been a rough month and when I weighed myself at the end I was at 216 pounds. I've now put on about 30 pounds this year and it is due to stress. I turn to a variety of things when my stress is out of control but they all revolve around instant gratification. Food, TV and video games are 3 of my biggest things and I have been turning to them in abundance this year.
It is tough to come back in here and say all this but it is the hard truth. The worst part of it all is that I KNOW it is a vicious downward spiral that feeds itself but it can be so tough to snap out of it. The truth is that I feel way better when I am healthy and denying myself those things that send me down the spiral. Time to cut out all the bullshit and excuses and just take it 1 day at a time. A few push ups here, a few angrily smashed pieces of candy there, a little fucking discipline and I can get this ship turned around.
I am glad to see folks in here tearing shit up and others trying to get back on track. ❤
