Damn you fat! I have questions for the folks here to answer. they are about weight loss. I dont know why i typed that... Anyhoo, im 17, 6'7" and around 230lbs. Alot of that weight comes with the height, but theres still a bunch of fat id like to get rid of. When i told me pa that i wanted to be under 200 by the end of the year, he said it was unrealistic, but then my bro chimed in and said that thats not true, mainly because he lost almost 20 pounds in a month and a half by eating less. What do you guys think? Is 30 pounds in a year unrealistic or just challenging? oh, and finish reading the thread before you reply, so that you know what i have planned. My plan is this. I'm going to stop eating all sweets, drink nothing but water and skim milk, and alot of water. Go to the gym 5 times a week, doing weight training every other day and cardio every day. In addition to sweets im going to cut out other foods that are bad as well, like chips, peanuts, etc. The food that i do eat is going to be healthy, fortunately my mom is a really good cook and can cook up a storm. I'm going to stop taking seconds, basically after one fulll plate of food my dinner willl be done. For breakfast, im going to be having either peanut butter on eggos or a bowl of cheerios, for lunch usually a sandwich, hotdog, leftovers, etc. Dinner will be whatever my mom makes. I go to university in september (hopefully) and when i do i know all my eating habits will change drastically. Ill figure that out when i get there. I also plan on taking a walk after everytime i eat, to store as little of it as fat as possible. Finally, im going to walk to everywhere i can, and drive to the other places. Do you all think that this is enough to drop 30 pounds in 364 days? And anyone got anything else to add that i could do to drop some weight? On a related note, i find that my hunger when im sitting is way worse than when im standing. I could be full and content, then sit down, and ill be starving in 5 minutes, when i know that my stomach is full. Then, when i stand back up it goes away again. Anyone else ever experience this? got any tips to help me with this? Thats kinda why i plan on doing the walk after i eat, to make sure that im not hungry. whoo, long post. Any/all advice is appreciated, and i will be forever grateful! Edit: I am 100% serious about this plan as well, to prove that i can truely say that over the entire christmas vacation (new years eve excluded) the only thing i drank was water, i didnt eat a single chocolate, i went to the club of the resort we were staying at every day, and tried to eat a little less.
