    I really can see that the loose skin is disappearing in these pics. Good work!

    Great work Tyler. Would you mind making a post about what your current gym/food routine is now? I’m particularly interested in know exactly what you do at the gym and for how long, and how many calories/what types of food are you eating at this point? I’m just trying to compare to mine since we have similar goals at this point. Thanks!

    Good job Tyler.

    You can really see the difference in the photos from you lifting.

    I have recently started my weight loss journey but I am incorporating a lifting program from the start. I worry that this might slow me down a little.

    The first thing I noticed was that your loose skin has tightened up noticeably. Congrats!

    I predict you’ll gain no more than 10 pounds; you’re probably still losing fat as you continue to eat healthfully and work out! (But I’m by no means an expert.) 😛

  9. Chris Clarke says:

    You should still be losing weight, or at least dropping the fat as you put on muscle. Whatever the number is in 6 days, don’t let it do anything but motivate you to keep working hard.

    Welcome back Tank! Regardless of what the scale says you know what you need to do.

    How do I know that?

    Cause you taught me.

  11. I am curious – are you taking other measurements while you’re doing the muscle-building? Inquiring minds want to know! Next week will be what it will be, and I can’t wait to see/hear what’s next for you! I know it’ll be something good. 🙂

    Another poster above asked for your gym/food routine, and I’d be interested too. Are you counting calories now, and if so, how many did you add on to maintain/gain muscle?

  13. Tyler says:

    I’m not yet, but I will be shortly. I’ll also be recording them with my weekly weigh-in results.

  14. Tyler says:

    I’m still counting calories. I didn’t add any, and while it’s common to add calories to add mass (gain muscle), I’m not adding any yet. I am still too afraid to gain too much fat, and I’m not having any trouble adding muscle and strength so far.

    When I stop building muscle at my current calories (2k a day), I will start to slowly increase my calorie intake.

  15. Tyler says:

    Nice prediction!

  16. Tyler says:

    Food is still hovering around 2,000 calories a day, watching what I eat — less fat, more protein.

    I’m not increasing calories yet, as is the norm for adding muscle — I am still able to add muscle fairly easily at 2k calories because I’m a beginner. As gains slow, I’ll increase calories.

    Gym routine is weights Mon/Tues/Thurs/Friday. 20-30 minutes of cardio each day.

    I stayed the same weight my first month at the gym — lost inches, no pounds. I’m 276 now with the weight doing the yo-yo from day to day. Was 286 at the start of the gym but I think I’ve been putting back on some muscle lost during a restricted calorie/low-exertion diet. But back to my clothing mantra, it’s all in the pants. I traded in my 52 inch fatpants for 46 inchers which were just barely on the tolerable side of tight. Now they’ve got some very comfortable slack and I can pull them out from the belly a little bit. The inches are dropping. And my belly, while still larger than it should be, is so much smaller than it used to be.

    You may see a really pleasing number on the scale but if I were to put money on it, you’ll probably see something close to the last number. But that’s not important — check how your fat pants look on you now compared to when you last wore them!

    Are you working with a trainer? They should be taking the caliper measurements along with everything else. This should help give you a more accurate measure of your progress.

  19. Jennifer says:

    ooh I am not interest in caliper measurements- they are ok and all- but wonder what kind body measurements before you started- buoncy dunk tank measurement or electrodes- some type of highly precise/accurate measurement (sorry I haven’t read your early posts so do not know if you did this) and would be interested in your measurements now- even if you did not do the tests before still might be neat to do them now and again in a year as your body size may not be changing as dramatically as before but your muscle/fat make up is 🙂
