I am determined to lose 54lbs by new year 2016, and finally be in onederland. I am tired of being over 200lbs. Its been more than most of the past 10 that I have not been in onederland. I started doing hiit workouts and walking. Im trying to stay under 1800 calories a day. I want to get to a size 8 in jeans. Im starting at 253lbs and a size 20 in jeans. Im working out most days of the week.

Ur right on the money. 3 lbs a week is very doable, and is in my opinion the right way to go about cutting weight. My only qualm is, you'll be just focusing on the number on the scale. I would like to hear, I want to cut 'x' amount of fat from my body. That is a much better goal.

Well Jovon, for sure I would love to cut out X amount of fat. I just dont know how much. I mean im about 39 bmi. So I dont know for my height and age how much is good for me. I just dont want to be considered obese anymore. I was though morbidly obese. So thats a progress, thank god. I mean ive heard of people having like 8 bmi. But those people are like bodybuilders. So I just dont know.

I assure you almost no one is 8 bmi. And bmi is good to know but you know it's been around since the 1800s. While it is highly accepted, and is a good tool for studies gather data for larger groups of people, it's very limiting to test per individual.

Oh ok. Then how can I measure my fat and know how much im supposed to have?

Anyway, if you live near a gym or nutrition supplement store. They have body fat anazlyers. You should check around to use one. It will tell you approximately how much of you is fat. You can then use that as a guide. I suggest start lifting weights, along skimble workouts with some good ol fashioned steady state "jogging" start tracking calories, and try to eat majority protein

You are right about the numbers, i need my BMI to be 24.9 and my Waist 2 Hip Ratio to be which right now is .93. And my BMI is 29.3 it needs to be 24.9
My Bodyfat is 28 needs to be 25.

Hey guys, im glad some of you want to go along with me on this journey to lose 55lbs by new years. Well, I gotta tell you that I just came back from a vacation in mexico for two weeks and man after working out before getting there I ended up gaining 15lbs on my trip. So now I gotta lose 70lbs. Right now am at 269lbs. My heaviest ever was 270lbs. And am back again. I havent been this heavy since like 2011 when my daughter was born. So I decided to start on my journey again. Well, I gotta do it differently this time around cause obviously everything ive done before has not worked in the long run. This time im going to try eating higher protein and lower carb. Ill try eating mostly unprocessed foods. Im not really going to focus on how many calories but ill try eating cleaner. I also started doing cardio for an hour every other day and the opposite days im doing calisthenics and strength training for like 45 minutes. Im drinking black coffee or tea for energy and lots of water. Who else wants to come along and see how much weight we can lose by new years? I need motivators and people like me. We can motivate each other here. Come along.

I know you're getting a lot of ideas thrown at you at once, but, here's another one :). When I first started actually trying to lose weight, I was focused on the number on the scale. I would weigh myself several times a day and restrict calories until that nightime number was lower than the morning. As a result, my diet was terrible. At my highest, I was 189. It took a long time for me to realize that "diets" don't work. Make getting healthy a lifestyle. Don't cut out your favorite foods, just find a recipe online that will make them healthier. Substitute good carbs for bad, use healthier oil options for cooking (coconut oil). Last, play around a little and figure out what physically demanding activity you really love to do. I'm a climber so I always recommend finding a climbing gym near you, but, try kickboxing, trampoline gyms, horseback riding, yoga, anything that interests you. If it's something you really enjoy, you'll keep going back no matter how hard it is. Start slow and build up to hard workouts so you don't end up injuring yourself at the beginning. Good luck!!! :)
