So, I'm one of the millions of Kids overweight. Right now, I weight 192 and am fifteen. Once upon a time, I weighed a healthy 242 at the age of fourteen before I decided this is totally unacceptable. So it started, last years new years resolution was to lose weight. I didn't have a goal in mind, it was just to lose the package, which I did. I got down to 204. Good, huh? Well, hell yeah it was. I was extremely happy with myself, I felt better, but something still wasn't right. I still wanted to lose weight. And that was this new years resolution.. to lose even more. But this time, I have a goal. As some of you read in my sig, 155 pounds, which would bring me a grand total of losing 87 pounds.
This time, It should be easier. I'm conscious of all of my actions and what I should do. Last time, I just assumed healthy eating and a bit of running would do the trick, but this time: Running: 4-5 times a week for ATLEAST 25 minutes, dieting:Small bowl of cereal for breakfast with a fruit, six inch sub everyday for lunch, and for dinner.. well I don't have a choice really. Being fifteen, you don't really have a choice about what you eat for dinner, just how much.
Now, can I do it. Hell yes I can! But, your guy's support would only make it 1000 times easier to accomplish.
Hells yes, you can do it I wish I had your enthusiasm; I'm 150 and really don't have to lose anything, I just want to get toned, but I have no motivation, even living on campus a few hundred feet from a great gym :haha
Wow dude I totally support your efforts and want you to know that it can be done! I used to weigh about 300 at my peak when I was 20-21. I weigh about 200 now at 22, but I also lift a few weights.
Metabolism is going to be your best friend for these next 10 years of your life, learn to exploit it with your diet and your exercise.
Did you know that you'll lose more weight if you eat more frequently but in smaller portions? Some people obsessed with working out have moved to 5 meals a day to keep their metabolism going, but these meals are literally like a PBJ sandwich and glass of water.
Request lots of protein. I prefer chicken over beef.
I don't know how strong you are, but I suggest you get into weight lifting as well. Lifting weights will slow your actual weight drop, but have much better results for your body. The fat will burn but muscle tissue will grow to take its place, resulting in more body mass.
If you're ripped, you're allowed to weigh 200 lbs.
