following: Linsolv's own diet
performance: losing 0.7 lb a week
I have always had bad eating habits. I was a 4 year letterman in varsity HS tennis; I am not great at the game. But because of that and the metabolism of youth I was able to stay around 180 for most of high school, and probably not higher than 20% body fat during that time. Then I got out, and my activity level dropped from "really quite active" to "really quite inactive" and my diet changed not one iota. Gained 70 lbs over 4-5 years.
In May I started StrongLifts 5x5. Currently my exercise consists of lifting weights Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday; sometimes I have to miss a day or rearrange my week, but it's not very common.
My ultimate goal is to get to 12% body fat. At that point, I'll have lost more than 60 lbs of pure fat, and I'll make a decision if I'm happy with my appearance, or if I'd like to get really lean and cut up.
