On January 8th this year I woke up and «realized» I was a fat ****. I'm 6'2'' and I was at 261 pounds on that morning...
The same day, I joined the gym and started doing the elliptical cardio machine for 45 minutes, 4 times a week or more. I also added to that about 20 minutes of weight lifting ust to maintant what I had, because when you do too much cardio you can degrade your muscles...
I also completely revamped my diet, added LOTS of fruits and veggies, lots of proteins, cut back the fat to almost zero... The only thing I'm still guilty of on a regular basis is bread and peanut butter.
So yeah, after a month of that diet/workout combo I had lost 20 pounds... 2 weeks after I had lost another 10 pounds... and from there, around 230 pounds, I started cutting back from my cardio and adding time to weight lifting... and cranking up the weights.
Today I'm at 216, and I do an hour of weight lifting 4 times a week with around 30mins of cardio almost every time I go to the gym, but sometimes I do only weights. The weight loss is very slowed down, but I still see and feel that I'm getting leaner and leaner, my clothes don't fit me anymore, and I see muscle mass gains through the last layer of fat I have...
You should follow a similar pattern, you'll see results in no time!
