Incredibly results in 10 weeks, and they still pay to continue with traditional training. I'm very excited to start! Still running and dieting now to get ready.
Best of luck to you. You made the first step. Just take ownership of it and you won't be disappointed. Getting off your arse is the hardest. Hardest part is done.

Down 3 pounds in Week 2. Pretty ****ty, yet expected. I slacked. Went out for too many beers and late night burgers. Really need to crack down hard. I would like to have a semi-routine/habit by the time I start training hard June 9th. Thanks for following along. Hope everyone is doing well.

Pictures of cheerleader girlfriend?

I've heard the radio advertisements for ShapePlus. Sounds like they have a proven track record. Best of luck OP!

You need some kettlebells to toss around.

Do you have a mountain bike? Meet me at North Table Mountain at 6am, I'll work your cardio with you.

Met with my new trainer yesterday evening to go over nutrition. I will be eating 2250 calories a day, 450 over 5 meals. Two meals will be a protein shake or protein bar with a piece of fruit. Doesn't seem like a lot, but 450 each meal will definitely fill me up.

Have to quit drinking beer during the week, and try and limit to just one day during the weekend. And again, can't have 8-10 beers when I'm out.

I've been running about 45-60 minutes a day. I'm feeling good, and excited to get into the gym and start lifting!

Lots of good information here, and it seems like you are doing great! My thoughts regarding weight lifting and weight loss...for what its worth...

The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you will burn doing various workouts. So lifting decently heavy weight isn't a bad idea at all. However, high reps, high intensity. Take as short of a rest between sets as possible. Keep that heart rate up. Circuits of weights mixed with short periods of cardio are pretty good for this I think.
