    Ditto. I'm in the similar shape and I still walk around without a t-shirt (inside). I am about a week into an exercise program though, so these coming photos are +1 week. It's nothing hardcore though. I was genuinely in the best shape of my life a few years ago (though the bar was not high, admittedly) but then screwed up my shoulder pretty badly and stopped exercise altogether.

    Minor League Fatty Reporting In:

    Weight: 205
    Height 6'3"

    Looking to get in around 190, lose some belly, and gain strength. I don't wanna scare anybody with my manly bushels of chest hair. I'll try and add a pic later.

    I'm going to be dieting hard (more veggies and lean meat, less sugar, grains, dairy) and doing a bodyweight circuit. It only takes 15 minutes and I'm ****ing winded - and that's after working myself out of really bad shape, so it might be rough on any beginners but it eliminates the need for gym equipment.

    I wish I had a pullup bar and a chair to do dips. Still, I will try.

    Doesn't matter one bit. Different levels at different points in our lives. I echo what TT said, if anyone wants advice on what's been working for me I'm pretty happy to give it!

    One guy's fat is another guy's thin!
    Howard2K, you're not far from your goal.

    After oatmeal and coffee this morning, in my pyjama: 188.

    I'm looking to put some height so my weight becomes normal!
    If that doesn't work I will have to bring my weight to 165 at least.

    You guys are inspiring. I know one of my problems is that I'm too busy to exercise to lose weight (cardio, alternate moves, etc.). I'm in shape though. I "work around the house" (I live in the country) and I'm pretty strong. If I feel a lack of energy working physically on something, in the afternoon I will, most of the time, have a can of Coke and cashews. I feel re-energized after that and can work for 2-3 hours more. I guess that's where I could "unbalance" the input/output and lose a little there.
    I also like junk food a little...!

    I might get the "10 minute trainer" program to start something.
    Oh Lord...

    I started my program a month ago, diet change and walking on a treadmill

    Current Stats:
    Age: 50
    Height - 6'
    Starting Weight - 300 lbs

    Goals:
    - lose 75# by the end of the year
    - strengthen my core

    Program:
    - healthy eating-no sugar, minimal salt, no white flour, no red meat
    - Treadmill, designed weight loss routine 5 days a week, once some of the weight comes off I am going to start core strengthening exercises

    Since I started a month ago I have dropped 15 pounds which puts current weight at 285. I figure it will take 6 months to get to my 225 goal.

    not with your current program. better eating and walking on a treadmill will only take you so far. you're gonna need to ramp up the intensity, and as i tell anyone trying to lose weight: strength training is your best friend. embrace it.

    Idle muscle mass still burns fat. Is that right?

    It is correct, but it's not nearly at the rate people think.

    1lb of Muscle Burns 7-13 Calories

    Working muscle is burning muscle.

    Can you enlighten me a bit? I've gotten into much better shape without it but I feel like I'm starting to hit a bit of a wall.

    I can do PM if you don't wanna derail the thread or even a link. I'd really appreciate it. :thumb:

    both accurate, but somebody with increased muscle mass burns more calories performing any function. somebody with lots of muscle has to move all that muscle every time they open a door, now again, it's not a huge amount of difference, but over a day all those simple movements add up, and when you get to the gym it's simple physics. If a guy bench presses 500 pounds it demands a certain amount of force applied to it. This force is generated from calories converted to energy in the gym. If a guy bench presses 100 pounds it requires a certain amount of force with the same rules. Now, the guy training with 500 will be burning more calories just getting through his normal workout than the guy who's doing 100 pounds. Granted, this scale is not linear, rather logarithmic, since each is doing near their capacity and going to exhaustion, but the numbers are the numbers. 500 pounds requires more force, and thus more calories than 100 no matter who is doing it.

    Ok i'm on the list now...

    I'm 6'0, 251 lbs...i carry most of it in my gut.

    My Plan - really not sure yet...eating smaller meals, more often...not eating after dinner and exercise (Cardio, core exercises and strength training - whatever I can do).

    Barriers: Rotator cuff issue (currently doing Physiotherapy twice/week) and i'm a food addict. Self diagnosed...I really think its true...i have willpower for other things but not food. Gonna need to have my wife help me with that. Also, hopefully you guys will hold me accountable.

    My Goal: 180-190 so that means losing 60-70lbs. I'm not going to try to rush myself and im not doing a "diet"...I plan on changing my lifestyle which i know is easier said that done. But I have to...

    this is one of my favorite articles on the subject and i've shared it numerous times because i've been saying these things since the p90x trend first hit.

    Wife did a couple years of P90 in a class. 46 years old at the time, she kicked butt. She wasnt fat, just out of shape. It toned her right up.

    Before, she could even think about a pull-up or 5 push-ups, after, she was like a machine. It really helped her alot and got her excited with seeing results. I think she is going to start back soon.
