So it has been a while since I put in a weight loss update. I have for the past several weeks hit a plateau of 350 lbs on my weight. I am going to drop my daily calorie count down to below 2000 calories instead of 2500 and I am trying to be more contentious about stretching my work out further so it is full hour or more of exercise. I am still going every day but for a while there I would complete my workouts in more like half and hour and I am trying to ramp up some more. I also want to concentrate more on my core muscles and get them more developed. I think that will help with getting more actually physical size loss as well as help with some flexibility issues which is another thing I don’t like about my physical condition at the moment. I used to be pretty damn flexible for a man of my size but that has gone away and I want to get a good portion of that back.

As a side note my back is still periodically hurting pretty bad. I am not verly worried as body pains have been a part of me since I was a kid.

Your weight loss is also evident in your breath. This is especially cool for someone who likes to do podcasts.

I hope the pain is nothing serious.

Its hard when you hit that first plateau.
You Body just decides it likes being at this new weight and doesn't want to budge for a while. I had to really kick it into over drive with workouts and dieting to get over that hump. Once I had lost about 10 more pounds I lightened up on the regimen without a problem.

I'll be cheering you on as always.

While it might be hard to keep track of, try to track your overall size. If you cycle like I was, when I stopped losing weight, I started shrinking down in size, then when I stopped shrinking, I started losing weight again.

And dude, you're a damn good inspiration.

I totaly know how you feel about plateuing. I went from 330 to about 290 and I've been stuck there for months. Granted, I'm not really trying that hard.

One of the best ways to diet is to let yourself plateu for a few weeks, maintain that weight, let your body adjust, then drop your calorie intake again. That will keep you from yo-yo-ing later on, as your body has had time to adjust to being a size other than your original size. It also tricks your body into burning fat instead of storing it.

Have you started working your core yet? That will really help with back pain. There is an exercise program called Chicometrics which is really good for working your core. It's 30 to 60 minutes every other day of very small, isometric movements that are very easy on joints but really tone muscle, especialy in your back and stomach.
