I never once looked at this thread!!  This summer I finally got real disgusted with myself at my peak 210lbs. (13 years ago I was married at 175lbs)  Tired of looking out of shape while my wife has been working out for years looking hotter and hotter, people probably look at me and say had did he married her ha ha ha!    This started Oct 2 2017 (at this point im sick and tired of being this way and went ba!!s out) Started off on a strict diet and low calories, well that lasted for 6 days until I bumped it up to 1600 calories and I only eat 30 % protein, 30% healthy fats, and 40% carbs.  During that first week I lost 11 lbs, started eating the newer diet and Mon, Wed, and Fri I hit the gym and focus on weights.  I do cardio everyday except Sundays and they are always mixed up from 20 mile flat surface Mt biking, jogging (rarely), sprinting, basketball for 1-1/2 hrs on saturdays.  I used to drink 32 oz of Mt Dew in the morning , one for lunch, on the way home and one for dinner!!  It was bad.  I haven't had a soda since Oct 2nd.  Ive really been enjoying Sparkling Ice carbonated sugar less soda.  (it taste really good and Im a picky soda drinker). 

 

My results are now 21 lbs lighter at 189lbs and Ive gained 2 pounds of muscle.  Im going to keep going until I hit 10-12 % body fat.  I started at 32%.  I haven't been on the forum lately because I've been watching hundreds of Youtube vids of weight lost and weight lifting, so Im glad Ive found this to keep it up with my Coues Bros.

Dragged myself through the white tanks today for 12.5 miler. Did the toughest loop to date and it kicked my but. Knee is a little tender as well, hope I didn't over do it. Body weight lifts tomorrow minus legs so they can recover. With all the recent hunts and scouting even eating pretty good I am losing belt holes!!!!

I just kept to my high nutrition diet, gym, and cardio!  Lost another couple of pounds and another 1/2" around the waist.  I probably only did about 5 miles pack in on my whitetail hunt last week.  This was an easy hike because this is the first time I was in good shape to backpack in.

I hear you man, even after some crazy mileage hunting this weekend on the way out 10 miles I felt like a kid, we just blew through the climbs and rocked out a 3.4 mile an hour avrg. I was super light though with the mules hauling the weight. But the main thing is it's nice to be ready and not hurting and suffering through hikes.
