    [PICS ADDED!] [Progression thread] Fat Cactus -> Skinny Cactus - Go!

    ~ CACTUS PROGRESSION THREAD! ~
    (cleaned up the thread)

    Going from THIS:


    TO THIS! (hopefully)


    In under 365 days!
    FAIL! (but wey hey)

    (credit to Aufi for the wonderful "before & after")

    This is just a progress thread I'm putting here for myself (and others who care!).
    It's here to help remind me of my progress and motivate me, and anyone else who needs it.

    For those of you who didn't know, or weren't around to know, I'm a pretty fat cactus.
    But I finally got the motivation and help to make a change from TriniOii and a couple of other nice folks on here.


    Weight Progress so far: 131 Weeks |-| ~60 LBS |-| 245 -> 186

    Begin - 12/28/2014 - 245 pounds & depressed as shit

    Current - 7/19/2017 - 186 Lbs and living it up





    ACTUAL DIET AS OF NOW:

    Greek Yogurt - Find the "lite" variety. 130 Cal a cup, lots of protien and nutrients. Flavor with grapes, walnuts, and raspberries for fibre.

    Chicken breast - boiled. Defrost, wash and rinse thoroughly. Throw into pot, fill with just enough water to cover all of breast. Add cyanne pepper, black salt, and other misc. seasonings to taste. Bring water and chicken to boil. Let boil for 30-50 seconds. Turn off heat. Let sit for 15 minutes. If still raw repeat until juicy and delicious.

    I eat once a day now. This gives me way more energy every day than eating "normally" and makes me feel fitter and more active.

    If in the mood for something filling I'll drink a lot of chicklen broth or soup. It's basically water with little calories. Watch the sodium.

    If need a snack i'll have a pickle. Again watch the sodium.

    PICS!

    Lets begin at around 240-250 pounds:



    When hovering around 205-210:



    Currently around 185 Lbs:


    Thank you everybody for all of your support and well wishes!

    I just edited the thread a bit with exercise. I was doing the cardio fine with no problems whatsoever before this leg pain kicked in. It's fading quickly though so I want to get back at it today after school. As you can see atm, i'm not really in good shape (at all) in terms of anything, but I gotta just keep doing it to do anything. I heard that somewhere along the lines of 3 times a week for 3 weeks does your brain kick in the endorphins for doing exercise, making it addicting.




    And thanks aufi. I've taken pics I'm just not going to post them yet since i'm technically underage and we all know people want this bod.

    you should be getting endourphins right away my no soruce tells me.

    Don't make the mistake of over exerting yourself when you're just getting used to cardio when you're out of shape. Shin splits are real and pulled muscles suck.

    Thanks a lot man. I really want to be able to lower my weight and gain muscle so I can do more of these exercises and eventually work my way up to a gym membership by earning some cash.

    your school lunch should be more than a pint of milk

    > lunch 4 oclock

    I guess you are trying to avoid eating any of the school's food. But don't starve yourself.

    Maybe bring some food from home? you can prepare something the night before.

    Nomenclature is in my style: Confusing

    No but look up the thread on Intermittent Fasting in this same health and fitness section by the lovely Ced. I was using that until school started up again, when I noticed a SERIOUS drop in performance in my last three classes and a total inability to focus or even stay awake. That's why I have my breakfast at 7 now, instead of at noon. Although I still want to go back to IF when school is on break ect especially since I felt a WHOLE LOT BETTER when I was doing it.

    Also, I'm definitely not starving myself. I eat good meals that keep me full till the next one, and sometimes I don't even feel like eating the next meal because I'm still full from the last one. I just needed to move the breakfast up.

    Also, the "lunch" for school is a pint of milk in case I really really need it and I can tell that I'm not focusing and i'm just completely losing it due to circumstances I don't usually account for. While others are eating lunch I'm usually doing something productive or meeting with my teachers about grades and college opportunity.

    I will post pics when I'm comfortable (have taken some of the "starting point", just don't feel all that good about posting them yet cause while I have lost considerable weight so far my body hasn't changed very much in overall "fatness".
