              Up to 181.6. Last week I was 178.8. I'm trying to go the opposite way to 190 then cut down to 180 before summer.

              • I'm starting my third week of creatine use. My gains have been pretty good. Leg press is up 45 pounds. Squat up 20. Bench up 20.

                I have to weigh myself tomorrow morning to see how I'm progressing. I feel heavier and I've been asked if I'm gaining weight by a couple friends.

                  In 3 weeks with just creatine? Those are really awesome gains, bench especially. What is your bench at now? I ask because generally gains are real slow once you hit like 2 plates unless your pounding food or just have a beastly natural ability.
                  When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

                  • Up to 168 pounds. I was absolutely floored when I saw the scale. I knew I had gained weight because my bench went up to 170 last week, but I didn't know I had gained that much. This drink a **** ton of milk thing is absolutely crazy. Especially proud considering at the end of summer I weighed 145ish(with a tendency to be less than that even). Pretty sure most of it is lean.

                    tjsunstein, what kind of creatine are you on? I've played with it before, but damn, those are good results.

                      • How much daily cardio should I do to drop a large amount of weight? I'm trying to work out six days per week.

                          Six days a week is a lot, even if you are extremely determined to lose a lot of weight. I would aim for 4 days a week. Less fatigue.

                          In my opinion, it's best to start out slow, especially if you haven't done a consistent regime of cardio in a while.

                          Start out running 15-20 minutes on the treadmill, maybe mix in some elliptical work. Then, gradually increase the time on the treadmill while declining the time on the elliptical.

                          Then, stick to whatever time on the treadmill you feel comfortable with.

                          • I usually run around a track for like 30 minutes and do ellipticals for 20 minutes 4 days a week. I went from 210 to 195 in 3 weeks doing this.

                            • I've been looking to get stronger recently, so I looked into buying some supplements. I decided to go with a casein protein. I usually drink it before I go to bed on a lifting day.

                              I dont know what to expect though. Hopefully good results.

                                Start with diet. Monitor it closely and set a strict caloric restriction: maybe 2500 on workout days, 2000 non-workout days, get mostly lean protein and healthy fats with some carbs after working out. I would try and do cardio 4 days a week. The key is to keep doing it tho, so make sure you pick something you like, even switch it up if you want with a rotation, much like a lifting program. Keep it new and fresh and do as much as you can in a day......once you are too tired to continue, do a cool down and cut it....the endurance will come, you dont need to kill yourself in the early stages, it will make you want to stop. The weight comes off so easy in the beginning anyway, you probably wouldnt need cardio as long as you get your diet squared away. Its still a good idea to do it, but just get that diet squared away ;) And remember, losing weight is as simple a concept as it gets.....if calories out > calories in, you lose weight.
