Hi! I just introduced myself as well. I am also 29! I couldn't find another group like this so I joined as well :) Congrats on the weight loss, what an amazing accomplishment! I have only begun and hope to have inspirational posts in the future!

I'm 29, but I love this board and have been reading the posts on here for a while--I can't respond unless I'm a member, so I hope you don't kick me out because I'm underage! I so admire what you all do and I am extremely inispired by you. Thanks for helping to keep me on track by staying on track yourselves!
I'm starting out in a different place than many of you -- I was 268, now I'm 234. I want to get down to 214 by the end of August, then 188 by the end of November (about 2 lbs./week). From there I want to tweak and see if I can get my body in fitness/bikini condition. I'll access at that point if I actually want to compete. My real goal is to have an "off-season" body year round! Around 20% body fat (or a little less), and plenty of beautiful muscle. Right now I focus on eating a lot of lean protein, veggies, a little bit of dairy (1-2 oz. /day), a little bit of added fat (nuts/olive oil/avocado) and a little bit of fruit. I also supplement with a whey protein shake post-workout. I do 3 days of HIIT cardio (30 min.)and abs, and 3 days of weights. Right now I do splits (chest/tris, back/bis, legs/gluts). I'm always open to suggestions, so I thought I'd post a sample day and see if you all have anything you think I might do to tweak and ensure I get to my goals ASAP!
Breakfast: 4-6 egg whites, 2 slices turkey bacon OR small chicken sausage
Workout + post-workout Whey Shake
Lunch: salad w/4 oz. grilled chicken OR turkey and veggies, dressed with vinegar, sometimes with fruit for "dessert"
Snack: tuna and bell peppers OR larabar
Dinner: 4-6 oz. steak with 1 cup of mushrooms and 1 white onion (stir-fried with cooking spray)
Snack: fruit (sometimes blended w/ 1/2 scoop of whey protein powder)
