From Fat to Less Fat by August 08

Thought i should start a journal.
I've just got back today from Ibiza and realised that i'm a fatty, so i'm determined not to be quite so much of a fatty by the time i go on holiday again in Mid August,
I've been on this forum since the start of the year when i started back at the gym after a about a 6 year lay off, due to an injury which turned into laziness.
So anyway i'm today i'm weighing in at 17 stone 6 pound, at 5"7 that's pretty heavy, my measurements are:
Biceps 17.5
Thighs 28
Chest 47.5
Waist 44.5 ( round my belly button )
Calf 18
Before i went away for hols i was training 4 days a week on the weights with a 20 minute cardio at the end of every session. Since i started back in January i have seen no change in weight at all, i was bang on 17 stone 6 pound then.
Sine starting i've seen strngth gains and more defintion and hardness but not really any size growth, this i was expecting, even maybe losing some inches which i have a couple off my waist and about an inch of my chest. An inch increase in my thighs and half inch on my biceps, no change on calves.
So i plan to reduce my calorie intake and up my cardio. Sounds so simple. Well it is so simple, Its just the doing it that i struggle with. The gym side i love, but sticking to a strict diet is hard for me, not that i eat loads of crap, just that i find it hard to stick to a regimental eating plan, but i'm gonna try.
I don't know how often i'll post in here but i'll try and make it as often as possible with a monthly update on inches and weight gained/lost.
ALso good luck to everybody else on reaching their goals this year

    cheers Raskol.
    Well i started today, and you would not believe how hard is was back at the gym after a single week off. I struggled thru every set, i hope its not this hard all week.
    But i upped my cardio from 20 minutes to 30 minutes so i got to take something from it.
    Just started another creatine cycle aswell so this week i will be loading.

    LEGS day, what a killer, with a lower food intake i was fooked. But i think it could just have been a bad day as i was struggling, hopefully i'll be back into the groove by next week, i thought i was gonna be sick on sldl's, but that is regular thing, in the end i just slumped to the ground in a heap

    wednesday tomorrow. Nothing strange in that, but what is, is that i will be going to the gym. Its usually a rest day for me, but with my summer cut plan, i gotta put the hours in on the treadmill, and as i'm sure i will be losing my fat belly, i need to start doing some ab work to tighten it up, so i'm gonna try and split my cardio with abs, both things i'm not keen on, i think i'm gonna all it wonderful wednesday from now on

    I'm back, back again!!! i've notbeen anywhere or disappeared jsu t been verybusy. Toi let you sll know, my cut was a failure, i ended up at 17 stone 10, but since then have come down to 16 stone 7 and now back to 17 stone, i think i'm gonna have to be more consistent.
    I just can't bring myself to get on the runner for any length oftime, although my fitnesss has improved, but only because i'm back playing rugby. ANyone got any ideas on how to make cardio more appealing. or anybody want to volubnteer to hang a burger in front of my face to keep me chasing it!!!!

    Boxing training mate. Cardio is intense, you'll enjoy it and you'll be learning an effective form of self defence.

    Find a club in your area and go and check it out.

    ihave seriouslybeen considering joining a boxing club, or some kind of fighting technique, the only thing putting me off is that at nearly 30 i will be walking into a gym full of mainly kids who weigh about 5 stone(together), now i don't mind embarrasing myself on the dancefloor on a saturday night after a bellyfull of beer after rugby, but having 12 year olds merciessly taking the piss out of you is painful man

    Mate that will not be the case I confidently predict.
     
    My club is the uni club and we even have an old guy must be at least late 50s(not even sure why he's there tbh - a very mature student?..anyway) It's not like people go easy on him, it's that he's just another member like evryone else and he is treated the exact same. In normal clubs I'm sure the age range will be 16-50, you won't look out of place.

    Honestly you have the mindset of a skinny guy first venturing into the free weights section, he will soon realise that nobody cares and that people accept that everyone starts somewhere.

    I've seen a few heavy guys - and girls -  drop weight pretty fast.

    thanks for the comment, but a uni club is going to be lot different to the kind of club i'd be training at. The boxing gyms around here are primarily used by people from pretty rough estates, me coming from one aswell.
    But i realise thepower of boxing training for cardio and fatloss,they are excellent, so i may have a chat with one of the trainers down there, i know a few of them anyway.
    On another note tho, i may look to krav maga instead, a gym that is within travelling disatnce also do grappling andsubmission training too. Its just fitting it all into the week around my current split and work and rugby

    WOW, its january, i have been back training at the gym for a whole year now, which is a landmark for me as when i started last year i was sure i'd have lost interest by June.
    Now i guess i haven't really hit the goals i was first aiming for,( to stop being s fatty), but i have done other things that i'm just as pleased about.
    For one i'm back playing rugby, which is helping my fitness, and two my strength levels are probably overally double what they were before i started, and i had always consiered my self to be pretty strong before. That was a joke,until you walk in the gym you don't realise how weak you are, everytime i see a new erson come into the gym, you see them pick up some heavy ass weight and try and rep it out, they soon realise they can't and end up down the light end. Our perceptions of our own strength are so misguided before we really start pushing ourselves
