I sent here from another outlier, like 3-4 months ago. I just wanted to add an update in case anyone wants to see it.
I lost about 90 pounds. My weight loss plan was pretty simple but strict. I count my calories. I don’t drink regular soda. I will sometimes diet on Dr. Pepper. Lots of chicken and vegetables. But I eat quite often and eat sweets now. The first 90 days I did not. It was here that I did most of my weight loss. From the end of November 2018 to the middle of February 2019, I rose from 265-270 to 190 hours. I just ran 5-7 days a week and gained 5-7 days a week. The modified bro splits. Chest and tris, back and biceps, shoulders, core / lower back, legs. These were the bands that I did. Not in that order. Most of the time it goes to the biceps and back .. then the chest and triceps, then the rest day. (Still run!) Then the shoulders are the core and lower back. Then rest or legs. Feet is a hard day for me to work in my routine because I run 7 days a week. So if I am doing leg day, I have to skip running for 1 day. I don’t like to miss running because I really like it.
Now I have about 177-178. Depending on how much ice cream I wanted to eat the day before lol. I fucking love the sound of cookie dough bursts. I have been this weight for 2-3 months. I just work steadily on building muscle and losing fat. Not quite scale oriented at all. I weigh myself daily, so he tracks my weight trends using smart scales. But now it's more of a habit, and keep yourself in control. I don’t care if I go up to 180-185 or 175. I just want to stay with a healthy weight and look.
Do not let anyone tell you that there is only one way to lose weight. Some people find great success with keto, IF, crossfit or Atkins. If it works great for them. But in fact, you have to burn more calories than you put in to lose weight. An easy way to do this is to count calories. There is no IMO magic bullet for weight loss other than this. So download the calorie counting app and make a plan. If you can … get started. I like to run because I like to eat. If I eat 5,000 Calories per day, that’s not such a big deal, because I can just run a couple more miles a day this week to help burn out. If I eat only 1800 calories per day, I can run less.
Hit the gym. Buy a cheap treadmill on craigslist and drop it in front of the TV (running outdoors is free if you cannot do this). Download the calorie counting app. These things are all you need to achieve any weight goal you want to do. No expensive cocktails. No crazy fitness plans. Nothing.
