120lbs lost. 320 in first pic, now 190. 1 year apart. 16:8

  1. 120lb over 52 weeks is 2.3kb lost per week. Living proof that commitment and consistency to add up to life changing difference. Amazing. You must be so proud.

  2. The first thing I did was quit drinking alcohol. Then I started walking. Just short distances at first but a bit faster and longer each time. I remember the first time walking I couldn't even do half a mile because of back pain. I started to slowly eat better. Cut down on sweets and carbs. I just tried to do better than the day before. 18:6 fasting. When I get hungry during my eating period I eat oatmeal. Oatmeal fills me up and sometimes eat 3 bowls a day if I am really hungry. Try to stay around 1800 calories a day. Thanks for the kind words.

  3. Wow! Amazing! I am currently 333 and am scheduled for gastric bypass next week, but I am rethinking that, and have been reading alot about intermittent fasting. The amount of weight you have lost in that time frame is what I am looking to do. I would like to get to 210 by next July.

  4. As someone who went through a Gastric Bypass, you should reconsider. I went from 315 to 185 in about a year and a half from mine. Then proceeded to gain 15-20 pounds a year until I got back up to 295. Unless you change your eating habits and your relationship with exercise, it won't work in the long run. Skip the major surgery and body modification, and just change your habits. IF is a great place to start.

  5. Gastric bypass forces you to eat less but in only one way (lots of little meals). If you can do it yourself I always believe that is better. And at least some studies suggest fasting is better for weight loss which is something you can't do as easily with gastric bypass.

  6. Thank you so much. I do 18:6 intermittent fasting. I eat at 10:30 am and stop before 6:30 pm. I exercise before work in the morning. When I first started I could bearly walk without any back pain and would walk for 10 min or so. I would push myself just to improve myself every day. Slowly I was able to make small changes. Looking back a year it seems like a big transformation but when you just try to improve day by day the task isn't so daunting. I use my Samsung health app to record meals and exercise. Good luck to you on your journey. Feel free to reach out.

  7. Please consider not having the surgery. I had a sleeve, lost 80 lbs and gained it back within 3 years. I'm now 16:8 and having much better results than anything the sleeve did. All the best in your decision.

  8. I start with oatmeal at 1030 every day. I have protein such as chicken, pork loin or sirloin steak for lunch, the same for dinner (plus veggies). If I get hungry I usually eat oatmeal during the day, which keeps me pretty full. I eat around 1800 calories a day. Gym in the morning, a mix of weights and cardio. Thank you for your kind words. Have a great day.

  9. What a difference a year makes! I’m in week two of my intermittent fasting journey and this post was exactly what I needed to see. Congratulations to you 👍

  11. I started by walking. I would improve every day. I would go a bit further and longer. After I was doing about 4 miles a day about 4 months after I started, I would start going to the gym. I was around 260lbs at this point and I would use the elliptical machine because I was still too heavy to run without my knees hurting. I would improve a bit every. I know am able to run and run between 5-8 miles every day without any pain.

  14. Anyone else see nacho cheese in the first pic and cool ranch in the second? Great job sir! That’s only due to the shirt colors. Not trying to be insulting. He’s truly inspiring.

  15. I feel good just getting back to not being like 40lbs over where I want to be..... You must feel amazing. As you should. That's a huuuuge accomplishment. Good for you bro.

  16. I just started IF about 3 weeks ago. Felt like 16:8 with about 1500 calories was starting too slow, but awesome to see that 16:8 can work. Congrats, keep inspiring!

  17. Ayyyyy, lookin slick in both pics my man! Amazing progress, and hard effort with dedication. The cool ranch shirt makes it an 11/10 progress pic 👍
