My OTC stack is Animal Flex, Animal Pak, Myodex, Creatine Ethyl Ester, Combat Powder, and Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite. Went through a bunch of supplements to find stuff that works in my biology.

Honestly man, do you really need all that? A balanced diet will give your body everything it needs.

Haven't made a post in here in a while. I hope everyone is continuing their progress. :)

Small update: Been working hard and back on supplements. Staying around 175 because it's easier on my back. Actually went down to 170 after cutting a little water weight. Just working on building mass and definition. Went back on protein supplements because I've had trouble putting on weight. My OTC stack is Animal Flex, Animal Pak, Myodex, Creatine Ethyl Ester, Combat Powder, and Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite. Went through a bunch of supplements to find stuff that works in my biology. Feeling good and lean. And cold, so very cold. Good thing I still have a little belly fat, as, otherwise, I would be freezing in freakin' 78-degree weather.

Freezing at 78? I was walking around in a t-shirt and hoodie in the mid 40's when I was a lean 125. At 78, I would be sweating my balls off.:lol:

Yes. And, with experience, I disagree with the latter half of your statement.

Chase, where are you from? 78 degree weather is warm, borderline hot. I would be sweating depending on the humidity.

dang sean, you're looking much bigger! (also, your fiances hair is much longer. my wife did the same thing when we were doing our pre wedding everything then came home a few weeks later and I didn't recognize her new haircut lol).

Haven't had a chance to check in a while. I managed to get down to 188 so I'm almost down 15 pounds. Still would like to get to 160/165, considering I'm 5'9.

The weight machine has been a blessing. Ive been working out about 25-30 minutes a day 5 days a week on it. While I haven't lost as much weight in the last week or two, I've noticed my clothes are starting to get looser and need to buy a new belt.

Thankfully I still have 8 months until the wedding!

Nice! As long as your body is changing you're doing the right thing. I was at 174 the last time I weighed in, so I'm glad I'm sticking at the same weight for once.

NYCC is over...think I'll need a day or two for my legs to resume normal functionality and then back to work. Only made it down to 256 before the show (I was sick for about 2 weeks leading up to it).

Didn't have access to weights yesterday so I did a push up workout...450 push ups later and my upper body hates me today. It may not seem like much, but when your mixing up the types of push ups it really works you.

Dang, Sean - you've gained 4 inches of height since the first, pic, too! ;)

I'm down to 184-5 about now. I think I may try to lose about 10 more total, but
- I'm really happy with my progress overall, since I was about 225 this time last year.
- My body fat is around 12.5%, so while there's still some to lose, I think going below 175 would be, as the kids say, cray-cray.

Thanks guys. I haven't been as good going to the gym as I'd like. I've been losing sleep ever since we got our puppy 4 weeks ago. My fiancé works nights so its usually me waking up with her.

Still go twice a week so that's better than nothing.

Puppies can be killer on sleep schedules. Months ago, I found and took in a stray. Very obedient and doesn't pee/poop in the house. But, this morning, she broke my sleep two times in the night, and probably had some affect on my recovery from yesterday's workout. Felt sluggish in my morning workout—even with preworkout supplements.

And I've fallen in love with kettlebells. Very versatile and effective. That is all.

I'm also a fan of kettlebells; great way to change things up.

Edging closer and closer to the 170 pound mark. I feel terrific these days. Glad this thread continues to strive on.

Nice to see all the positive results still pouring in! You should all be proud of what you've accomplished.

As for me, I'm still maintaining...I've kicked the cardio habit mostly and have actually spent more time lifting than roadwork (Yes, I still HATE it). Put on 5 lbs (195 now), but it's a good 5 lbs. I feel great.

Great job guys, I've gained so much weight over the years in High School. I weighed 155 in 9th and went down to 137. My sophomore and junior year is when I started to gain weight but maintained a 160. My senior year is when it killed me, towards the end, I weighed 185 and over the summer I lost 10 pounds and kept around 175-178 and now over this week I weigh 172. I just need to stop eating food I don't need.

I'm still going... not so strong... but still going. I stopped with the Insanity about 2 weeks ago and it is noticeable. I've gained a little weight (187) but it's not like I've been sitting on my ass - I've just been running exclusively. I need to refocus on my diet which I've been lazy with since football season started.

I'll probably start up Insanity again in about another week - I think I was burned out. It has been unusually difficult to get out of bed in the mornings and I've been extremely tired. Feels like I got hit by a ton of bricks when my alarm goes off so I've been sleeping an hour later which still leaves me time for a 35 minute run before I have to go to work. Not sure if I'm just old or tired or both. I've also been very stressed out recently both at home and at work.

Javery, I know what you mean. I was completely burned out on my normal lifting, it became a chore just to go through the motions. I'm trying to mix it up as of late. My whole body is still sore from my push ups :(

How are you setting up your sets? I alternate between 3-5 sets to failure and sets of 50 to failure.

I haven't checked this thread in a while, but next Friday marks my 30th birthday, and right around 2 months on my diet. I'm right around 173 lbs, down from a starting weight of 203ish 2 months ago, and down 55ish from January of 2011. I haven't been working out much other than chin ups every other day, although I plan on working out more seriously since I have a goal of completing a Warrior Dash and Spartan Sprint in Sept. of next year. I know I've got a long way to go, but for once in my life, I've actually got the motivation to do it.

Nice job opterasis. I bet you feel great.

I'm back in the saddle again... I started up Insanity (again) yesterday and I'm actually sore for the first time in a long time (not really sore but I can feel something). My most successful period was really watching my diet and doing Insanity M-W-F and running once on the weekend so I'm going back to that - the problem is once I get going I feel like I can do more so I start working out on Tuesdays and Thursdays and then I inevitably burn out.

I'm glad the cold months are here so I can really focus on staying in shape instead of there being an excuse to pig out every weekend at the beach or whatever. I figure by Christmas I'll lost the ~10 lbs. I've put on over the last 2-3 months and be ripped up again.

Thanks blindinglights.

Javery, I do, I feel amazing. I've never had this much energy. I've never WANTED to get out of the house and go for a hike, or look forward to a day where I'm going to do as many chin ups as I can. It's a great feeling.

I changed my regime to 1 hour of biking 4 times a week, and an "improved" diet of no regular soda and better choices when getting fast food. I have cut down to 179 lbs, down from 196 a mere two months ago. I'm pretty stoked to be down to a weight I haven't seen since in at least 6 years (31 now). On my 5'7" frame, there's definitely more to be lost.

Dude, that's pretty awesome. Now you can fit into your out-of-style clothing again. That's my goal!:D

edit: I actually had my first can of soda in maybe 2 months yesterday, and it was HORRIBLE. It made me wonder why I was chugging that stuff when I was younger.

I wish I had some of my old clothes, especially pants. I've had to wear a belt with work slacks that were snug on me mere weeks ago.

I've found that I can't slam down a large Pepsi like I could pre diet change. Anything more than 20 ounces just hurts.

Just read this "I went for a run but came back home after 2 minutes because I forgot something. I forgot that I'm fat and can't run for more than 2 minutes." and couldn't help but think of this thread lol.

Also, I love soda but stopped drinking anything with caffeine in it :(
