Well , I have made it to gym past 3 days in a row , just gotta keep with it. I also determined my daily calories i should be consuming to get to where I want to be, and downloaded the "myfitnesspal app" to assist in keeping track of what i' consume daily , Which I feel will help with accountability when I am entering everything I do consume.

This is just the beginning and I have a ways to go to get back to where I was, and in the right direction , but I will get there !

Interested in hearing what the daily caloric intake amount that you have determined is. A lot of people like going in all guns blazing, cut their calories in half, and basically starve your body of nutrition. Remember you need a certain amount of calories to keep the muscles happy!

Keep on striving man, good thing come to those who endure!

THIS! Just have to remember that it takes time. A few small things like drinking less soda will add up. Then you can start adding a few more things as you go on. It's a marathon, but don't let that scare you.

On another note, did my first chest day since the torn shoulder a few months ago. No pain! Starting the year off right.

Thanks JP10 and VMRWHEELS .

Couple things- I do not drink soda, or alcohol. I only drink black coffee (nothing added ) or water . Sometimes I will have some Kombucha, not very often . So I get at most 50 calories in a day from what I drink , that has never really been my struggle. The struggle comes from making poor food choices, including desserts , and consuming far too much of them haha.

I am also not new to the process, counting calories, lifting etc . I just took a 2 year hiatus n screwed off for the majority of it , I just need to continue doing what I know I need to do and I will get where I am going. I know it takes time, and cannot be rushed .

Thanks for the support guys, looking forward to being able to contribute to the thread , and celebrate some (health and fitness) wins with you all!!

Good for you. I know you have past experience...but one suggestion I would add (although you probably already know) is don't add back your exercise deficit into your caloric intake. I never account for calories burned during my exercise in my target range.

I see way too many people get burned by thinking that they need to eat for example 2600 calories a day to start the process....but then use the excuse that the treadmill said I burned 400 calories...and those 400 calories go right back into their daily intake.

It's very hard to calculate exactly what you may have burned, so best to leave it out of the equation altogether and make minor adjustments as you go. Just one less variable to worry about.

Damn, I've been doing it wrong all these years. Figured since my watch tells me I burn about 600 calories at the gym that I can just gorge on cookies to fill the gap.... kidding hahaha. I didn't know there were people that thought like that and were actually counting their calories lol.

My brother was/is a prime example. He figured he needed 1700 calories a day to start his weight loss journey. But he told me that he burned almost 500 a day in his exercise routine....so he would actually count that as part of his deficit.

But you know how some people can be....any excuse they can come up with!

Appreciate the info, I am in same mind state as you however. If I am to eat 1825 calories a day, that is what i will eat regardless if I didn't touch a weight, or I left the gym dripping. Any calories I burn are just a bonus deficit . Those calorie calculator things on machines etc are not very accurate anyways , or so I have read.

I just found this thread. But it is true! Having a buddy system or workout partners, whatever you want to call it is really helpful to me and a lot of other people. Besides the accountability, it helps make new/stronger friendships as well.

Well friends , I have exercised every day since my first post in this thread, and have been eating at , or less than my 1825 calories a day each day with no slipping! Feels great to be working out, and losing weight , I am currently down 11lbs so far ( yes I know it is probably mostly water weight due to less retention from eating less carbs/total calories) but regardless it feels great to see the numbers going down! I also feel better physically and mentally!

That is awesome man! Keep it up! Monitor how you perform in the gym as well, reason I say this is because if I was on 1825 calories or less I would be struggling a little and I'm weighing in @ around 195. With that said, if it is working for you and you feel great/performance is great then keep moving forward!

Appreciate it brother! I plan on continuing the forward motion and not stopping!
I know the low calories will effect my lifts and such , I'm not too concerned there however as right now the main concern is losing weight/bodyfat as I have accumulated toooo much. Once I get to a decent bf% I will focus more on rebuilding/gaining muscle.

I am making sure to eat plenty of protein to help keep the muscle I do have, and maybe gain a little back as I didn't lift for a while and def. lost muscle mass. ( I know they say in a caloric deficit this is not possible, but its still a nice thought lol)

GVT 10 sets of 10. Pretty brutal, but I really like it.

Did squats in the smith machine today, allows me to shift my feet forward and closer together which really targets the quads.

Haven't done GVT in ages! I think that was the first program I ever did that caused me to puke on squat day!!!

I know what you mean.

One of my older Corvettes (Z06) years ago put down around 600 to the wheels. And because of that, I had to upgrade the clutch to hold the power. But back then, there weren't many options available and the clutch I had was brutal.

I remember my leg would sometimes quiver after leg day when I was driving it!

I get this often as hell. Calves will cramp as I'm pushing in the clutch, it's brutal haha.
