At least the losing part. I've gone from about 210 in the fall semester of 2011 to a little under 165 now. I look good, feel great. Am finally not the big guy in the group. Feels awesome.
I still need to lose some weight now for a Brazilian Jiu jitsu tournament coming up. I plan at fighting at featherweight which is 154 pounds weigh in with the gi the day of. I'm looking forward to a not fun month of bombing my weight for that, but hopefully I'll be stronger than my opponents at that weight class.
I figure this 160-165 at 5'8" will be fine as my walk around weight. I'll just need to do some slow muscle building, using the fat I have left as fuel. Hopefully I can keep all these lessons I've learned from spark along the way with me into the future. And soon be able to actually eat more! haha, I'll keep it healthy like I am now, just bigger portions and not worry if I want to eat some chips or something. So glad I'm here now!
I'm 5'8" stinks being shorter
Summer 2011- 215 lbs. Peak weight
Christmas 2011- 200 lbs
Start of summer 2012- 170 lbs
September 2012- Made my goal of competing at feather weight for Bjj (under 149 with a little water cut)
Now I'm just trying to maintain around 152ish to leave me in easy cutting range. Also trying to relax and eat more like a normal person now, balancing enjoying life and staying healthy.
