I started trying to lose weight drastically when I was having relationship problems 5-6 months ago or so. (As seen in the outreach forum.). I was around 6'3 or 6'4 and weighed 350 lbs, which is obviously grossly overweight, but I have a history of looking like I weigh a lot less than I really do, it has been that way since I used to play ball and had a lot more muscle mass and was in shape. I guess i'm more dense. Just for examples sake, When I was 350, I had a friend who was 315-320 and I looked near half his size, suprisingly. but thats besides the point. Anyway, since then i've lost around 80 lbs, i'm around 270-275 now and it's been really tough, but i've been doing well. Only problem is that, up until now, the weight has just been melting off, and now its just stopped. I'll lose 2, gain 3, lose 1 gain 2, etc. I haven't really changed what i'm doing, I just kind of feel like I've reached a plateau and i'm not sure what the best route is to get over the hill. I've changed what I eat from complete garbage to generally healthier foods, more fruits and vegetables, more whole wheats and whole grains, i drink at minimum 4-5 bottles of water a day and dont drink much else unless its something with zero calories (excluding alcohol on the weekends, even then its not too much), and i've been holding myself to around 1200-1400 calories a day. I try to go to the gym around 4-5 days a week, and on average I probably make it around 3 days a week, which will involve like 20-30 minutes or so of cardio. (at least 1-2.5 miles or so depending on the machine). and mostly upper body oriented machines/free weights, with some legs here and there. Nothing extreme, atleast not yet. I can be more specific if needed, but I guess I'm just looking for advice on what the best direction would be to get over the plateau i've hit, should i do something different with my diet? do something more specific in or out of the gym? target different areas of my body? or will the ceiling just lift away at some point? I've never really had to deal with this, so i'm not sure. In high school, for me atleast, it was just, "Lift big get big", and it worked. But I was much more fit then, lol.
