Weight Loss - 160lbs - WUT?!!?

Hello Kids,

I have not posted on GenMay in eleventy billion years but others have encouraged me to share my story about dropping 160 lbs...and I used to be fairly active here and attended a meet so someone may remember me. At the very least, put this information to use or serve as motivation or something.

At my peak I was 330lbs...27 yrs old, June 2011. I didn't really care. If people had a problem with it, fuck em. Then my sister announced she was going to get married...out of state...in Las Vegas. The first though through my head was "Son of a bitch I have to get on a plane". I'm not one of these assholes that was going to buy one seat and take up 10 and say it is my right...but I also did not want to have to pay for 2 plane tickets just to travel. That combined with the fact I could no longer see my penis when looking down, got me motivated.

The first 30 days consisted of straight diet correction. I cut calories to an extreme amount (1300 a day). I did all the BMR calculations, daily calories needs etc but I wanted to move as fast as possible within the means of saneness. I had 365 days to make it happen.

In August I started integrating exercise...first walking, then speed walking, then jogging. Now I run 40 miles a week at peak paces of 9mph (not the fastest there ever was but considering I was the size of a house not too long ago, I'll take it). I did not neglect strength training, I tried to minimize muscle loss as much as possible along the way...I think I did good as I did not end up looking like a Shar Pei. I have SOME loose skin on my midsection and under my arms but nothing disgusting and it is slowly tightening which is win++.

By July 2012 I was 170lbs (where I reside now). I can see my penis when looking down (and is also much bigger these days...like scarily bigger). I can run more than 10 ft without dying, can lift a weight, and have guys and girls both interested in having sex with me. That is cool, by the way.

So there you have it...no miracle formula. Diet and exercise...90% diet 10% exercise. Pics are below.

Very nice man, one of the most inspirational weight losses I've ever seen. How do you feel now that you're at a very healthy weight? I bet you can pick up so many women than before. Btw I think your second link is busted.

Nice work.

Do you have any trouble maintaining? Some people lose a bunch of weight then basically have to rigidly watch their diet forever, other people seem to just reset and get to act like "normal" people afterwards.

I think with the level of exercise ive incorporated into my lifestyle now, I should be OK. Ive been at 170 for several months now with no issues. My body seems to WANT to be here at this weight. Rumor has it the people that lose weight really fast tend to keep it off longer. Something about seeing results faster keeps them motivated to keep it off. I dunno. All I DO know is if I did get that big again, well, I'd be fucked.

To me, it also looks like you also lost 10 years. Seriously, you look a fucking decade younger in the after pic.

Congratulations!

Holy hell man, congrats! And people will realize that wieght loss really is about 80% diet and 20% exercise. What you shove in your mouth makes the most difference. Best of luck keeping it off (no sarcasm). I lost 42 pounds last year, then went off my diet and ate/drank everything I wanted to (while still hitting the gym 4 days a week), and have put on 13 pounds since then, so as of yesterday I'm back on the train. Once you get looking the way you want to, I agree that it makes you never want to go back, and you'll fight harder to keep it off.

oh, and I fixed the link in your first post. Again; nice job man.
