That's impressive, as someone who dropped ~60 lbs I can imagine how much work goes into what you have done

It's actually 1 year and 3 months. Doing that in the 3 months is plain scary :eek2:

Nice work JS! It's good to see someone doing it with good old fashioned will power!

Really good work. I've hit a wall at 245... not sure what it's going to take to really get thru it. I'm aiming for 225, that would put me 70 lbs down from a year and a half ago.

I'm almost starting to think it's a lofty goal... I know I still have some to lose, but short of eating like a rabbit and really doing absolutely nothing but going to the gym all week.. I don't know what it's going to take. I'm at the point that I see about a lb go every couple weeks, if I'm lucky.... :(

Depressing... but I guess it's better then nothing.


You've done a great job. So many people I know that really could take a lesson or 10 fron what you're doing!

Thanks guys, not trying to be a big shot just letting people know U CAN DO IT TOO
Diet is real important, I eat 5 times a day (3 Meals and 2 Protien Drinks) about 2200 calories...
I am on the treadmill (HIIT) 3 times a week and gym 3 times a week

DIET IS THE KEY, I eat egg whites, grilled chicken, fish, yams, green veggies, brown rice, lean steak and a quality supplement pack of creatine, glutamine, fish oil, natty test booster, multi, nitrox II....I take a pre and intra workout drink and EAT evey 3hrs...

U MUST EAT AND U MUST EAT CORRECTLY...I cycle evey 10 weeks from the bulk cycle to a cut for 8 weeks and on that cycle I cut carbs to 100g a day, green tea, recreate, cla and fish oil with a multi..

I only drink water, 1 to 1.5 gallons a day....
2 cups of black coffee too

I WILL BE 205 hopefully by Oct..
NOW ALL I NEED IS A F-CAR TO COMPLETE THE TRANSFORMATION :D

Congrats, your doing a great job. Diet is the key, hands down. Lots of cold water is also a huge help, negative calories and less retention when fully hydrated.

You should add some L-Carnitine to your cutting phase. The liquid form is best.

Good luck on reaching your goals, I'm sure you will.

Total props to you man, that is an awesome accomplishment! I lost 50lbs in about 3 months with just diet and exercise but I fell back into my old ways and gained 35lbs back. You are an inspiration to many including myself!

My carnatine intact is perfect using the protein drink (Dynmatize) and my Pre and Intra drinks from Controlled labs have it in them too but thanks for the headsup...I honestly feel 28 again and wanna look it too :D

Try the SCI FIT Kre-Alkalyn 1500 creatine. It's pill form and has 100% absorbtion. You don't have to cycle it and no stomach issues.
I remember you years back sitting in Carteks garage on a milk crate eating boloney on hot dog buns that you were pulling out of your pockets, :jest:
Now we're talking creatine! :nod:

I am taking the Scifit Products, I still cycle the KRE after 12 weeks
I am drinking ALOT of water but even though SCIFIT sez u can take the PH balance w/o a cycle its not a good idea....
I also cycle the Natty test boosters and the pre, intra workout drinks...


12 on a BULK and 8 on a CUT :D

Nice job Joel. I'm also on the gallon plus water a day routine, but that's for these damn kidney stones that I get. The plus side is I can get away with eating 'less strict' and not putting on the weight since I'm less hungry. I had my first McD's burger and fries the other day in almost a year or so and couldn't finish the medium fries.

For the first time in 10 years, I've gotten my cholesterol and triglycerides to where they should be, and like you said, I feel a good 10 years younger.

Keep it up Joel, stay focus, and maintain....

Congrats to you as well. :)

I'd say I'm cursed with the fast metabolism that I have. I can eat all I want and not gain weight.. But the Acid Reflux and frequent bloating kills me.

I gotta start working out again. I'll get none of that again.

Nice job Joel! I still need to come visit the shop if you guys are open on a Saturday. I think everyone could eat a little healthier. I recently got back into the gym after a 1 year absence. I'm on week 6 of my current routine. Next week I will be changing the weight routine and also adding nutrition into the equation. I am at 192-195 ish and hope to get to 170 ish.

Keep up the good work!

Agreed. Powder creatine has a tendency to make you retain water.

What sort of test boosters? Any side effects? Acne, back hair, the uncontrollable urge to have sex with LS1LT1 and WS601TransAm? lol

New weigh-in coming May 3rd..(Only weigh myself once a month)

JS WAS 405lbs 1/3/2010
NOW 254lbs 4/3/2011

I would not even recognize you! Thats awesome! Congrats and keep it up! How are your legs/knees/ankles feeling?

You can still make some very yummy meals if you get a little creative. Have you tried corn-flake chicken? My g-friend makes it, and its awesome. Basically you use cornflakes to give chicken the same sort of texture as fried chicken except of course its 10x healthier.

At your weight you should be shooting for about 225-250g of protein a day. Are you able to hit that?

Truly awesome work & I bet you just added 15+ QUALITY years to your life!!
