2 weeks in now, how are your New Years resolutions to get fit going?

Me
>Down to my weight loss caloric intake range (2000)
>Aerobics and weight lifting 30 minutes per day 7 days per week (haven't missed a day)
>Down from 35 to 15 cigarettes per day
>Down from 226 to 222 pounds
>>
>>35621326
Also, brushing daily now, and have gone 13 days without looking at porn.
>>
only 30 minutes? Make it 2 hours bro
>>
>>35621326
good on you mate, but fuck me, 35 ciggies a day?
>>
>>35621343
some of us have jobs to do

>wake up at 4 am
>work till 7 pm
>eat, shit, shower
>left with 1 hour a day
>anon: you should create a time vortex where the hours of the day extend to 25 rather than 24 hours
>>
>>35621361
Yeah, sort of a casual suicide. Haven't been enjoying life much the past couple years.

>>35621343
I'm fine with 30. I can knock it off quickly before work. Burn about 300 calories, so if I ever go over my 2000 limit I am still covered. Already my blood pressure is much better, before I started this my resting hear rate was in the heart attack range. 180 to 190 sitting down. Now after 30 minutes on a stepper I am only up to 160.
>>
>>35621368
You work 15 hours a day? I find that hard to believe.
>>
>>35621776
Who works out for two hours per day except people whose job it is to work out, or gym rats with no life outside of gains?

The point of exercising is to improve your life, not to BE your life.
>>
>>35621368

What kind of bullshit job do you have?
>>
>>35621939
I know, but I work 9 to 5 and then work out from 6 to 8 and I still have plenty of time for myself.
>>
>been trying to have about 2000 calories per day (have been doing this for almost two years now)
>struggling badly; usually end up being closer to 2500 calories

>started using a stationary bike
>been riding between 20-40 minutes every day (had one rest day though)

Haven't lost any weight but I'm still gonna go at it. My eating was a bit worse than usual right after New Years too since I had leftover Chinese food from NYE to eat for a few days after (was eating like 3000-3500 calories per day finishing it off)
>>
>>35622043
I know what you mean. I had to do a lot of careful planning to get under 2000 without feeling deprived. The trick for me was just going through the list of foods I enjoy eating and finding stuff where I could eat a lot and not blow my limit. Tuna Sandwiches turned out to be my best option. I could conceivably eat 4 a day and still be well below my limit. Find a few you like and stock up. I currently have 30 cans of tuna in my pantry. And ingredients for other similar meals.
>>
>>35622043
I got 4 meals I eat in different combinations.

rice (half cup dry with soy sauce and veg) 390
tuna sandwich (two tbls mayo) 450
pizza bagels (three, no pepperoni, cheese cutout middle) 650
apple and peanuts (1 apple, half cup of peanuts) 500
coffee (one cup of milk, one tblsp sugar) 200

I do peanuts fruit and coffee for breakfast, 700 calories
Tuna sandwhich for lunch, 450
Pizza or rice for dinner, 390 or 650
Cup of coffee for desert 200

That's either 1740 calories or 2000 depending on the day, and I never feel hungry.
>>
>>35621939
>2 hours a day
>your life

What sad existence do you live that you only have 2 hours to spare in a day and cant spend it maxing your human potential?
>>
>tfw college-tier broke and eat less than 800 calories a day not by choice

And people get mad when they eat more than 2000, I hate you guys.
>>
>>35621343
>no 8 hour arms
Good luck trying to leave humanity behind
I bet you only take 2 scoops

That time would be better spent bettering your mind. As long as you are exercising enough to stay healthy, there are better uses for your self. Work out for 30, then spend the extra hour and a half studying a couple programming languages, double your income within two years. Or, you can "maximize" your physical potential by getting watermelon arms, and work at Denny's when you aren't lifting.

You are eating way too few. You are just burning muscle mass right now, going to be a fat flabby mess.
>>
>>35622429
>implying money is more important than being able to lift trees so you can build your own house by hand

You aren't going to make it.

>>35622445
Im aware, if I could afford to even eat shitty food I would, but I'm like donate to feed african kids poor right now.
>>
>>35621326
Okay serious question. Which one of you started going in Austin, TX.

There's sperglord (he nice though) that has been hanging around one of my gyms since new years and I am 99% sure he browses here.
>>
>bench up 15 lbs
>>
>>35621326
>35 cigarettes per day
How the fuck? More importantly why the fuck?
>>
>>35622485
Sperglord in what way?
>>
>haven't watched porn since new years
>been in the gym every day
>eating no more than 1900 calories every day
>lost five pounds already
>lifts are remaining the same/increasing slightly
>I have taken nothing but ice cold showers for the past week
>brushing and flossing every night
>reading every day

We're all gonna make it.
>>
>>35622506
Dude just awkwardly talks to everyone, then he hangs out at the front counter for like an hour.

He also compliments people's form randomly.
>>
>>35621939
Nigga I used to frame full time last year and had my gym not been 45 mins away in rush hour, I could have easily done 2h.
>>
I'm doing Bigger by the Day half natty (some endurabol for cardio and anti-wasting). It's pretty brutal, but it feels productive.
>>
>>35621326
>implying we don't despise you
>>
>>35622448
Check mate. I admit defeat.
>>
>>35622457
Cheap shitty food has the highest calorie count possible. 5 packages of Top Ramen and you would be close to 2000, they are like 5 cents each. How poor are you that you can't afford 25 cents a day? You can find that much under a vending machine.
>>
>>35622499
My biggest vice. I put the pack down three flights of stairs though, so it is quite a hike anytime I want one. That immediately cut my consumption down to 15. I have an acre of land, I will probably eventually put the pack out in a shed at the far corner of my property. A walk that long will probably cut me down to 10. Then when I start my new job which has a strict no smoking policy, I won't have any until i get home from work, so will be down to 5. I'm fine with that.
>>
>>35622508
Sounds exactly like me, don't make it too hard on yourself though. Stack too much on and the whole house of cards could fall. Are you just doing no porn, or no jacking off entirely?
>>
>>35621326
>Constantly getting mire's from teens
>Some Asian manlet brough his gf to the gym to watch him workout, and she saw me DL 3p8 and was constantly eye-fucking me afterward
>fuck my gymfu 2 days ago
>Broke a new PR for squats and bench

New Years have been pretty gud
>>
I HATE THIS SHIT
>>
>>35622519
Some old man with a giant dick (probably 9 inches flaccid) just hangs around in the locker room naked trying to chat with people at my gym. I have never seen him actually working out.
>>
>>35622669
He obviously does dick related workouts making those dick gains
>>
>>35622363
>apply for foodstamps

dont starve nigga

>>35622363
Rice and beans will give you 2k Cal for like $10 a week
>>
> No porn
> Masturbating to imagination
> No alcohol
> No cigarettes

Man you would not believe the craving I am going through right now though. It was easy when I was on leave but I've just come home from my first week back at work and every inch of me is screaming for a carton of beer and a pack of smokes. It's been two hours and there has been no let up.

Problem is that it will throw out everything because not only will I drink and smoke tonight, I'll use porn to get through the hangover tomorrow, plus I'll miss a gym sesson
>>
>>35622971
>Masturbating to imagination

Be careful with that. You will never beat your porn addiction if you continue to activate the same neural pathways. Avoid all "porn fantasizing" when you jack it. Otherwise you are keeping the addiction alive on life support.
>>
>>35623025

I'm mainly (mentally) fucking girls from work, or constructing elaborate fantasies around celebrities
>>
>gym daily
>started at 10 minute run a day, now up to 20 minutes
>weight training
>daily caloric intake at ~1000 eating just proteins(chicken, steak), leafy greens (celery), light cereal with sparse dairy (like raisin bran)
I feel good, healthier than I've been in a long time honestly.
>>
>>35623036
Sounds fine, just so long as you aren't jerking off to your porn fetish.

Surprisingly, I found I am at my most vulnerable right after jerking off. It re-activates that part of my brain and the desire to go look at porn is almost more than I can handle. I have had one slip up so far, and it came about an hour after beating off. Ended up looking at porn all night and jerking it twice more.
>>
>>35623080
Why so low, are you very short?
>>
>>35623097

It's a surprisingly hard thing to control hey
>>
Went from 121kgs down to 116. About 1400-1600 kcal intake, sometimes less, sometimes a bit more. Can see a lil bit of change, nothing major but not givin up. 185cm if that matters.

Started SS this monday. Too lazy to do cardio. Enjoying the lifts.
>>
>>35623149
kcal, isn't that a 1 to 1 conversion? 1600 seems really low for your height and weight. Are you sure you aren't just losing muscle?
>>
>>35623318
Made a mistake possibly, it's just calories.

Possibly too low, but consider the fact that i am a lardass that has next to 0 muscle, fat loss is my concern.

Also, i actually went to a physician/nutritionst to help me with my diet, gave blood samples, measured pressure, waist hips neck all that jazz. I am not to be trusted with making up my own diet, at least for now, it got me to 120kgs in the first place.
>>
>>35621368
The first step, and maybe only step, to making it is not lying to yourself.
>>
>tfw the protein farts have returned

I don't know why I dropped my nutrition and just basically maintained what little gains I had for a few months, but it's good to be getting back.
>>
>>35621326

>Stopped/limiting fapping to tranny pron
>Trying to fix my sleep, 3 days slept 2am-8am. Trying to make it every day.
>Saving up money. Buying protein from walmart or myprotein not GNC
>Getting back to the gym 5 days a week
>>
>>35623349
But that is really low man. For someone your size you could be eating around 2400 calories and dropping 2 pounds per week. Eating 1400 to 1600 you are probably starving yourself and not actually burning off any fat. Your doctor approved that calorie intake? I am the same height as you but about 30 pounds lighter. I am consuming 2000 per day and still dropping 2 pounds per week.

Started SS little under 2 months ago.
5'11
Stayed 205lbs the entire time.
Recently switched to highbar squat since lowbar feels wierd and oly lifts look fun.
Squat - 175lbs 3x5
OHP - 110 3x5
Bench - 155 3x5
Deadlift - 225 3x5
Chinup - 40lbs assisted 3x5

My schedule and diet were really half ass at the start but progressively got better throughout.
>>
>>35623349
If you are that heavy, you actually have a ton of muscle mass under the fat. It takes a tremendous amount of strength to carry around that much extra weight. You aren't "seeing" the results probably because all your losses are happening to the muscle underneath your outer layers of fat.

Also if you starve yourself and make really miserable, then there is no way you will ever keep up with your diet plan. You'll give it up eventually guaranteed.
>>
>>35623482
Came back from the gym, hopefully you're still here.

I'm never hungry(unless get hungry whilst preparing my meal, can't eat chicken ungrilled) I make sure of that. I did a similar diet about a year ago; lost around 28kg(about 60 pounds) and my main issue was maintaining, i went back to my old habits.

I try and eat more on days i lift; But I'll take your advice to heart and talk to my doctor as well, see if i should increase the cal intake.

Thanks man.
>>
>>35621326
Pooped 6 times today. 3 more than my res calls for
>tfw
>>
>>35623946
Yeah, don't listen to me, the only info I get is from the internet, and we all know how wrong that can be. Definitely listen to your doc. Just the fact that you are paying attention to your calories at all might be enough. It's not paying attention to your intake that causes the most trouble. Good luck, from a fellow lardass.
>>
>>35624133
Thanks man. We gon make it
