I posted this in the weight loss thread, but I wanted to move it here. I just turned 19 and at 5' 11" my weight is hovering around 245lbs, I feel like a blob. My highest weight was almost one year ago and I weighted 267lbs, I have not been trying very hard, but I think the 20lbs. lost was due to me cutting red meat out of my diet in January.
I have not eaten red meat nor fast food since January, but about two weeks ago I felt it was neccessary to take the next step. I have cut down on junk foods, and I make sure I eat enough, but lots of chicken, fish, and vegetables.
For excersize, I ride my road bike a few days a week, depending on the weather, and I go to the gym around 4-5 days a week. Typically I do some mild cardio and then lift 4 of those days, and then the fifth I do intense cardio or spinning. I am hoping to raise the cardio level soon, and to start dropping more pounds.
I have two current goals. First, I would like to be down to 210 or so by the end of December, my grandparents are taking the entire family on a cruise and I want to be in decent shape to pick up the ladies . My second goal is to complete and do well in a 5k run that my dad and cousins participate in every spring. Are these goals attainable? I have tried and failed in the past, but I really want it this time.
