    The wife asked me this morning if I weighed this morning. I said yes, why? She said you just look skinnier in the belly area. Hopefully I am in fact going to have a nice weight loss week.

    Well we usually go out to my parents for Sunday dinner, and they typically do not cook healthy. Got lucky and had pulled chicken(think pulled pork), beans, cole slaw and macaroni and cheese. But I stayed strong and had 1/2 cup of beans and 8oz. of chicken on half a wheat bun.

    Oh and I went the whole weekend without any alcohol. I am really trying to be strict with this.

    I have figured out that I need to cut my brown rice servings down to 1/2cup at my 10:30 and 1:PM eating times. I am getting too many carbs to stay under my 150. Once I do that I will be perfect. Simple things make a big difference.

    Down 5.2lbs from last Tuesday. Sitting at a nice 256.1lbs. this morning. Time to keep pressing on. Make some tweaks hear and there and get those carbs right. I was pleased with the results. I know it won't be 5lbs every week, but man, if I could get another week of 5lbs before it slows down that would be great.

    Just to let you know how much diet means.....During the holidays I gave up on the diet and working out from Thanksgiving to New Years. Gained 15lbs. So after the new year I started back January 3rd. Weighed 268lbs. I was determined to get my weight off I put on during the holidays. I looked back at my log, and last Tuesday(2-14) I weighed 261.3lbs. So it took me 7 weeks to lose 7lbs when I thought my diet was good, and it took me one week to lose 5lbs when my diet WAS right. Diet is everything!!!

    Approved and will change your life. I promise. Now you are ready to fly..........

    Oat Pancakes:



    1 cup oats (just regular old fashioned oats or quick oats)
    1 cup egg whites (about 7 large eggs)
    1 cup fat free cottage cheese (or 1% if you desire)


    Splenda all you want
    drop of vanilla, if desired
    baking powder 1 tablespoon


    First: Blend the oats in a blender until real powdery (no water just blend dry )
    Add all the above ingredients and blend until a good consistency for a pancake


    Cook on griddle/pan which should be real hot after sprayed with Pam....and then cook like a regular pancake


    TOP with:
    Sugar free syrup
    and possibly a dollop of plain Greek yogurt to spread around the pancake and sprinkle some splenda on top of the yogurt


    ENJOY!


    MAKES 3 BIG PANCAKES! so good for 3 meals.

    Yeah I figure it will slow down. But if I could get about 2 more weeks of 5 lbs a week I would be stoked. Mind you I have roller coasted down TWICE to 225lbs. Hope I can get back there, because I have a nice blast planned. Don't know if I will wait until 225lbs, but if I can get close before I start that would be great.

    Oh I am definately going to keep going. In fact my wife wanted me to do a diet for her based on what I am eating. Of course, that's going to be VERY difficult. How do you put a diet together for a woman who is 5', 112lbs and 12% BF. LOL!!!

    Not my area LOL.. I did one for my wife and shes havn decent results.. I have to constantly remind myself shes not me and shes not gonna go as hard as i do.. For example she gets migraines and occasionally will drink coke to help it and it was real tuff not to tell her how that was ruining her diet and she was stupid for drinking it LOL.. i tried to be gentle

    Well after reading through your accountability log, it looks like I need to be posting some more info in here. Like my macros I eat for the day and my workouts for the day. So here we go to get me caught up for the week

    Monday
    Protein 368g
    Carbs 220g
    Fats 73.4g
    Calories 3025 calories

    I know its high, but my wife made a pot roast, green peas and mashed potatoes and she RARELY cooks, so I had to eat some. I actually restrained myself somewhat. Only had 3 oz. of roast, 2oz. carrots, 1/2 cup green peas and 2oz. mashed potatoes.

    I worked chest on Monday
    Decline-BB--5 sets
    Flat-BB--5 sets
    Incline-DB--5 sets
    Cable flies---3 sets
    15 minutes cardio on eliptical....I was running short on time so I got in what I could.
    I did all my sets pyramid style except for the cable flies.


    Tuesday
    Protein---404g
    Carbs----186g
    Fats----62g
    Calories---2,910 calories

    Worked back Tuesday

    Bent over one arm DB rows
    90x10
    90x10
    90x10

    Bent over pulls---Don't know what to really call it. Kind of lay/bend over and there is a pad for your chest. Load the weight and its got handle like a motorcyle on it
    115x10
    115x10
    115x10

    Lat Pull down
    150x10
    195x10
    180x10
    135x10---Behind the neck

    Close grip rows
    165x10
    190x10
    190x10

    T Bar Rows
    115x10
    160x10
    160x10

    Abs
    100 crunches
    Cardio-30 minutes
    5 minute warm up/5 min jog at 6.0/3 minutes walk at 3.5, then I alternate walking and jogging(1:30 jog/walk :30)(1:00 jog/walk :30) I do this until I get down to 3 minutes left then I walk the last 3 minutes to kind of cool down. I have really bad circulation in my legs(runs in my family) so my damn calves get to feeling like they are going to explode out of my skin. Its very painful. The jogging doesn't bother me. I could jog longer if my legs would allow me to.

    ^^ the calf thing i used to get when i started back running.. Theyd get a tight and burning feeling?? Sucked bigtime and i felt i could run longer but the pain was too much.. If thats the same itll go away probably after 6-8 weeks.. I dont think its a circulatory issue.. More an "out of shape" one

    In the meantime id suggest u try to incorporate intervals.. Which it sounds as though ur doing a form of them already.. If u can find somewhere (like a park or field) and pick 2 points a distance u feel like u can sprint without stopping.. And sprint from one end to the other and walk back and repeat.. Each sprint and walk back being 1 set.. Try to do 10 sets.. As u progress increase the amt of sets.. Very good cardio! Ud only need to spend about 30 mins doin that.. Once u get in better shape finish the round off with a 10-15 min jog...

    It might be the same thing, but I also get these bumps on my leg, like the veins puff up on my skin. You can push on them and they are real soft. Kind of like touching a vein on your arm when your real vascular.

    I have done intervals. When I do them I usually do a 30 second sprint at 9-9.5 and then walk 1 minute at a 3.5. Only problem is I can only do about 5-7 of them. Then I go back to walking/jogging the rest of the time. I really HATE cardio so I probably don't do the same cardio routine more than twice a week. I have to mix it up, but I always try and get my 30 minutes in.

    Same with me. It doesn't mess with my legs either. I use it also.

    I wanted to know how I tell if I am losing fat and not muscle. Here is my thinking. Tell me if I am correct

    If I started out at 260lbs at 20.5% BF, that means I have 207.7 LBM, correct?

    So if I do my BF% measurements every couple of week, I want the weight to go down and the BF% to go down also? For example lets say after two weeks of doing this cut my measurements are 250lbs and 17% BF that means I would have 207.5 LBM.

    Is that correct?

    Just wanted to make sure I understood. I am hoping to do my BF again this coming Tuesday. That will have given me two weeks.

    I was up two pounds this morning from Tuesday. Have not strayed from the diet so I don't know why. Did my fasted cardio and a little bit of chest this morning. Been running around today with the wife but still eating what and when I need to.
