Outstanding.

My SM feed is always full of people complaining about how they are fat but instead of doing something about it they are sitting on their asses complaining about how they are fat.

Some people do somethng about the things they want to change. Like you.

Congratulations, Steve. Continue on this path!

One thing I would recommend is to get rid of any clothes that start getting baggy. It removes the ability to comfortably fill out clothes you should never fit back into.

I won't buy pants or shirts over a certain size. No matter what I'm doing or how my life is going, I will not buy "bigger" clothes. It keeps me accountable.

Thank you. I was cinching the old 52's with my belt until I felt comfortable in the 46's. My wife told me I looked like shit and was wearing a demin sack. One of the VP's at work, a former Marine, told me "you're making great stride, don't fuck it up looking like a soup sandwich, get some pants that fit".

I donated all of the fatter clothes to the clothing drive for my daughter's team. It was bittersweet because I bought a bunch of shorts last summer. The fat boy jeans, and my suit are in the bag to go to Care and Share this weekend.

My old belt almost wraps 1.5 times around me to my spine now.

Thanks again for the encouragement, support, and advice.

Not slacking, I was in KC all week and running all weekend. The last time I got on the scale it read 285lbs. The 46" pants have been retired in favor of 42". I ran half of a 5K on the treadmill at the hotel, can actually do real pushups again, and the kids on the team are scared they are going to lose their bet with me.
Previously I had to work at buckling my seatbelt on the plane. There is now room to spare.

That's a great update. Nice work!

I'm shooting for 55% actually, the ultimate goal is 200lbs.

Thank you.

As of last night I can comfortably carry my G30S IWB in my 42" jeans.

Thanks again for all of the advice and support.

Damn dude, you are crushing it!

Stick with it and keep us posted. It's helping remind me that 15-20lbs...while not much, easily snowballs.

Weekly update the scale showed 281lbs this morning. 80lbs total loss, 80 more to go. I am officially at the halfway mark.

I've been running wide open since Friday so I didn't eat the way I should over the weeked. I ate all good foods, just not enough and my body reminded me to put some fuel in the tank.

In the quest to see my garage floor I did some PM on the family bicycles to add another variable to workouts. I successfully replaced the exhaust on my Impala on my back. This is not such an accomplishment in and of itself. Me scurrying my fat ass under the car on jackstands and ramps with room to spare and room to move was the accomplishment.

While working out yesterday morning my daughter said "wow dad, you can actually see muscles in your arms now" I almost wept.

As much I used to riducle people with, wearing the FitBit really makes me keep moving even when I want to plop. Although those urges are few and far between because I feel like I am wasting time if I am not doing something.

Great job Steve! Sooner or later you will need to throw a refeed in there, especially since you are losing so much! If you feel you are getting drained, throw in a day with high carb, same amount of protein you usually intake, and low fat. By high carb I mean 300 grams +. I usually do this with pasta and a low fat cereal such as apple jacks or fruit loops. Keep going!

First off great job Steve. I do have a question concerning protein intake per page three starting at post #45. I'm down 15lbs since Jan but I don't think I'm taking in enough protein, MyFitnessPal is calling for 108g/day, eattoperform.com calls for 255g/day and I saw a calc (maybe bodybuilder.com) that called for .78 of total bodyweight which equates to 198g/day so I have a wide variation. At present I'm 6'1", 255, 47, cardio 4 times a week and lifting (very moderate, light weight per doctors orders) 3 times per week plus pushups, situps and bodyweight squats 3 x week. I think I need to up the protein but not sure how much - I've purchased the Isopure low carb protein powder based on input from another thread. Any advice appreciated. Thx.

What makes you think you're not taking in enough protein? I'm assuming from what you posted that your goal is to lose weight. If you want to lose weight, eat paleo-ish. Stay away from the carbs. Eat clean food. I wouldn't obsess about protein given your current goals.

I'll defer to those more knowledgeable than I. I am no position to advise anyone. Thanks for the kudos just the same.
