Mission 2014: 250lbs; Join Me, Guide Me, Help Me.
Starting this to get the ball rolling. I will update frequently.
My goal for 2014 is to Get to 250lbs or less.
In 2013 I came down to 260 from 300. I primarily just ate low/no carb. Initially my weight loss was quick, but eventually it slowed down and stuck around 260ish. My strength took a huge hit.
I have been bulking since October and am up to Between 275 and 280. I will get an "official" weigh in tomorrow morning.
My Short term goal is to get down below 250lbs. I want to do this the right way, minimizing muscle and strength loss. My plan is to count calories. I purchased a scale and have an account on my fitness pal.
I plan on the first 1-3 weeks being a transition period. I will use this time to get back "in the groove", if you will. I will began cooking all my meals again and get in the habit of tracking my calories. I will eat instinctively during this time and worry more about the logistics of things than actually adjusting my caloric intake. I will probably not need a full 3 weeks for this, but am allotting myself this amount of time as I am a working professional, single parent and am a busy guy.
After that point I will set a caloric deficit and eat to that deficit. I plan on starting at 500 calories below my baseline and seeing how that goes for a few weeks.
At least for the time being I will not be too concerned with macros. I will eat more protien than fat, more fat than carbs. However, I would appreciate any suggestions as I go down the road on where my macros need to be.
That pretty much is the run down thus far. Most importantly, I will need your help. I will have questions and will need your guidance. This is something I have never done before. Thanks!
As far as logging, I will more than likely log daily nutritional intake, but not log each meal.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
