How's your progress going, /fit/?
>6'0" tall, 220 lbs.
>start eating lettuce wraps instead of sandwiches, with extra meat to make it more filling, and with mustard instead of miracle whip
>only eat out if other people invite me and get diet coke or (more often) water to drink
>speaking of, drink a lot of water
>start couch to 5k
>maximum of one candy bar once a week
>just kind of think "hey, is this healthy?" before I eat something
>have one bad day three days in where I eat a burger, a shitload of ice cream, etc., but then the next day it's back to being more careful
>two weeks later weigh 217
I mean, I still don't love how my body looks, but I'm getting there. This week I start actually counting calories.
You are looking for validation. OK.
Start counting calories right now, on your next meal. Have a rough plan of what and where you're going to eat before you go out in the morning.
And quit that candy bar shit. Seriously, you don't need that and you'll realize how many varied things you can eat once you drop that. It eats away at your calorie budget like crazy.
By the way, you can eat a burger and icecream, as long as it's once in a while, but do not go over your calorie count, ever.
If you put on some muscle you'll lose some extra weight as a beginner super easy. If you think you've got muscle already, you're wrong.

Now I just need to save up for a home gym
I've gone down from 145 to 141 in about eight days. just eating at a deficit and gym everyday.
I don't eat junk food really, just light proteins and meats, leafy shit etc. Water/coffee to drink. Very little dairy if any at all.
Go cold turkey on the super sugary stuff like candy bars and soda for a month or two.
Once your body's tolerance to sugar returns to a somewhat normal level, that shit will literally make you want to puke.
Pretty good I'd like to believe I can hit 405lb DL max this year and maybe start repping 315 for squats.
But I can't seem to focus on school. I don't want to read the text books.
I'm too busy caught up seeing if this little twink is going to be mine for life or stay on the path of degenerates.
I'm a little pissed because he's my lifting partner and I'm taking him from twink to twunk and he hasn't been lifting all week because he needs his time and space away from me to think things over.
I'm about to beat his ass.
Good job OP, really. You're on your way. >>35615686 has the right idea; once you lower your sugar intake, you won't WANT that much sugar. If you cut out soda for even a week, you'll see what I mean the next time you try to drink it.
On the other side of the planet
>5'11. 192 lb
>1 pack ramen brkfst and only eat meat filling a 1500 cal a day
>1.5 months later lost 28 lb
Is this what a life without a fatjacket feels like?
>lost 40 lbs in 6 months
>despite reducing Cals still not losing weight
It happens, I feel like I'm eating fucking nothing all day.
A lettuce wrap, in and of itself, won't do anything. It's just a way to make a burger keto friendly. But if you go that route, you MUST go all in, or it won't work - you must stay in ketosis in order to burn fat, and even one candy bar will halt ketosis for at least a day or two.
And say GOODBYEEEEEEE to your fucking gains!!! FUCKING GAINS!!! GAAIAIHAGDSBEIE they will go the fuck away way way away because you ate a God damn chocolate bar, do you hear that fatty Mc Patty cakes?
No fucking gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains agaggagagagagagagagagag I am so goddam high fucking looool Ooltewah holy shit tutti fruition I'm in a fucking high ass condition my gains will beat yours into submission baby listen to my rendition cake and ice cream is a nice dream but dishing up some fruit to avoid contrition is a more efficient position.... To be honest family!
This. I used to drink a Dr. Pepper with literally every lunch and dinner. About three months ago I quit and became a ketofag. I honestly don't even miss it.
I even remember having my first "cheat meal" a month into it. I was looking forward to it all month long, I had it all planned out: A footing meatball from Subway and a Dr. Pepper. I got there, ordered the sandwich, and the drink machine was out of Dr. Pepper. I wasn't even mad, and went ahead and drank water with my cheat meal anyway.
