Photo Progress #3

FYI – Just a photo progess update. Lost over 205 pounds so far… Another 80-90 more pounds to go… And just about down to a 38″ waist…when I started I was a 58″!!!

Thanks Everyone for your encouragement and support!  I still have a ways to go still…… but, I’m in the home stretch!   Getting ready for my first 100 Mile cycling race this spring!

Thanks,

William

  2. Hey Will, Just saw you on Geekbeat.tv

    Wanted to let you know that I admire what you are doing.

    I am a William as well and I have lost about 100 in the past year and the half.

    I have plateued this winter, but I expect to get going again once the weather gets nicer.

    I am limited in the winter due to bad knees and a very long winter. We still have a couple feet of snow/ice here. It snowed again last night.

    Which do you think has helped you more, excercise or watching you diet?

  3. Hey William!,

    First off… 100 pounds?!?!?! That’s great! Losing that much weight is SOOOO good. So, keep it up—and don’t let the plateau discourage you…. I’ve been through plateaus before – just ride them out. You’ll be OK.

    Snow? In the US? or overseas?

    So, Exercise or diet? I really believe that you “can” lose weight with just diet. I think that diet is about 75-80% of a successful weight loss plan.

    However, incorporating exercise can definitely step-up your weight loss—-in addition to building muscle mass (which you REALLY don’t want to loss muscle). However, bringing exercise into your program can be tricky. The reason is — when you start exercising, your body WILL require more food/fuel for you to keep going. So, finding a balance between diet and exercise can sometimes be a tricky proposition.

    I recommend concentrating on your diet first —- and SLOWLY start bringing in cardio (walking, cycling) into your routine. After that, I would start some type of weight-bearing exercise (lifting weights, kettle bells, dumb bells) —- But, be careful! Start slow with low reps.

    You DO want to build muscle mass (or convert fat to muscle and get lean) — but remember your body WILL require more fuel/food. Proceed with caution… 🙂

    Also, if you haven’t already, — take a look at Tim Ferriss’ book : “The Four Hour Body” —- I am reading it now—- and he really has a good handle on all of the above.

    GOOD LUCK… If you ever need help/motivation, etc, etc — You are more than welcome to give me a call: 225-341-2727 or get me on Skype @wsellers.

    Cheers,
    Will
