The Flopnuts Fatties Thread

I'm going to be an attention whore on this. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a morbidly obese individual. I grew up overweight. Like, as long as I can remember. In the beginning of 2008 a weight loss thread started. I decided for the first time in my life I was going to go see a doctor and try and take off some weight. I was 450lbs.

I learned how incredibly ignorant I was to health, fitness, and food. Over the course of a year and a half or so, I lost 185lbs. I went from someone who had never been able to run a mile in his life, to someone who ran 30-40 miles a week. I have a framed picture of myself completing my first 5k, and it was one of the proudest moments in my life.

In August of 2010 my wife and I decided to move to Branson, MO from Seattle, WA. I've lived here before, and wanted to come back. I've never really drank in my life because I come from a long line of alcoholics. I chose a different poison, and always smoked pot. (Yeah, lost 185lbs with the ****ing munchies every day. Go me!)

Needless to say, I started drinking when I got down here because the pot was horrible, and eventually stopped running. When I stopped running, I started gaining weight. Today, 2 years later, I weigh approximately 380lbs. I say approximately because frankly, I would have to find a freight scale to weigh myself.

Today is the day it all begins again. I thought long and hard about putting myself out there on this board, because it has changed so much since I did this the first time. But it was such a great release for me, and an insane source of positive encouragement, and valuable information that I decided to do it.

I also know that all that weight I lost inspired a few others on this board to do it as well. My understanding is that they have all kept that weight off. I'm hoping to replicate those achievements with some current fatties out there. Let's band together! Let's learn, and fight, and be who we want to be, rather than who we are right now.

I'm going to post before and after pictures in the next post. My before and after is a little different though. I'm going to post pictures of me at 265, and one of me today. I look forward to posting my after-after picture at the end of the year. I am going to lose 100lbs+ before this year is over. My goal, is to weigh 250lbs by January 1st. That would be the same weight I was at in the 8th grade. Public accountability is a big part of why I was so successful before I think. The idea of putting this up and being the same or worse by year's end is disgusting. I believe it will help me. I will be bumping this thread perhaps on a daily basis. It worked the last time.

Who's with me? Who is ready to put in the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to change your life forever? If I'm alone, I'm alone. But I hope some of you will join me in the battle of the bulge. We'll call it "Custard's last stand"! And to anyone who wants to talk shit to me, about me, or whatever, bring it on. It fuels me.

GO!!!

I'm still eating keto, but after putting on a good 5 lbs in the first week, I'm back down to where I was. Glad I only have to maintain for another week. Shit is nearly impossible on Keto.
Pretty ****ing awesome. When I did a strict calories in vs. calories out diet, I found myself feeling deprived frequently. I sucked it up and dealt with it, but I felt that way nonetheless. With Keto, I miss nothing but pizza. So I have pizza. Without the crust. I don't miss bread, pasta, rice, or potatoes. Potatoes was a shocker. I figured I'd miss the hell out of some mashed taters. Nope. Not at all. No deprivation, no hunger, no nothing. I'm good. I eat what I want, I naturally stay in that 60/35/5 range, and I'm happy.

I'm not exercising enough. I need to get that in. Really need to get that in. But I've lost over 20lbs. Oh, and I even stay away from carbs when I'm drinking. Helps we don't have many in the house, but my mind is straight with it. Question. I'm hearing that low carb diets **** you up when your exercising. Something about the body eating muscle tissue to sustain exercise levels. Any validity?

There is some truth to that. Exercise is fueled by glycogen, which is basically a glucose polymer stored in your muscles. When carbs are consistently kept low, glycogen levels are decreased (hence why that first week or two, you lose a lot of water weight).

You will not be able to sustain intense levels of exercise for lengthy periods. As long as the bulk of your calories comes from fat, you shouldn't break down muscle for energy. It's just really hard to recover and almost impossible to build quality NEW muscle in the absence of insulin. I know sugar gets a bad rep, but when timed correctly it is awesome. One of the most anabolic hormones your body produces.

If you start smelling like ammonia when your working out/sweating.. its a sign of muscle tissue being broken down for glucose (energy).

I know there's a seperate thread somewhere for this, but I've been through P90X and P90X2 and Insanity is a whole other animal. If your looking to burn calories with intense cardio, you should check out Insanity. It's a bitch.

****ing life.

I've been doing better on the food part but the exercise part just isn't there. Excuses I know but with the wife starting up school again.....it's hard to find time in the evening. And with my kids being punks during the middle of the night.....it's hard as **** to get up at 5 am to work out. I've got to figure something out.

I just started sprint-8. It's a really quick workout three times a week for 20 minutes, but it's intense as all hell. 30 seconds of balls-to-the-wall sprints followed by 90 seconds of jogging repeated 8 times. Couple minutes of jogging before and after for warm up and cool down, and that's it.

I run about 3-4 miles 3-4 times a week, do boxing/light mma training twice a week and have just started this. I'm a shade under 170 pounds and in pretty good shape, but this kicks my ass in a completely different way.

So it seems like it's basically the same premise as Couch to 5k....just with sprinting?

I might have to try that out.

Is there a website on it? Does it get progressively harder with longer sprint times and shorter jog times?

No need for a website but there are plenty. There is no progression. You just run harder/faster as you improve, but the splits stay the same. You might not be able to go eight rounds at first depending on what kind of shape you're in, so it's okay to start at four or five and work your way up. I was able to go all eight my first time, but the eighth one about killed me. I wouldn't have been able to go nine.

Cool....I'll definitely look at integrating that into my workout. The faster the better considering my lack of time.

It's hard to find an excuse to puss out on a 20 minute workout three times a week. Trust me, I try.

So its basically HIIT 400m sprints? Sounds like fun. I'll stick to prowler pushes.
