    Male
    Age: 36
    Height: 6'0''
    Starting Weight: 354.2
    Previous Training/Lifestyle: Sedentary computer work, no sports background.

    Starting resistance training and cleaning up my diet, finally decided it was better to live in the physical world than the digital. No trainers in my town (and I'm weak as heck), so starting with minimal weight on the bar to be safe, since I've seen multiple places that people get themselves in trouble with these programs by starting off too heavy, since untrained folks aren't good judges of appropriate difficulty level. Deadlift I started up twenty pounds because the gym had two 10 pound thin plates that were the same height as 45s, so would give it the correct starting position. Decided posting here would give me some accountability push to stay on target.

    Great start! Most likely too light, as you've noticed, but it's better than sitting around. You'll find that the most important thing is to stay consistent.

    Keep at it!

    Have you checked the coaches section here for gyms and SS instructors? If all else fails try online coaching. There are lifters and coaches who have been on a program to lose weight as they gained strength. Dietary guidance could be quite useful.

    I'll take a look into it, thanks for the direction. Just dialed back to plain meat+milk+fruit+veg the past week. Pizza sings its siren song in the distance.

    Gym owner says he'll talk to somebody about helping out with learning the Clean safely when the Deadlift starts getting too taxing to do every time.

    Met the gym owner's contact and they're going to start helping me with learning the basic Clean form next week. Enjoying things so far, feels like I could probably increase the squat in larger increments, but not need to rush things too much.

    Good stuff man. Don't be afraid to pop a video on the technique forum either if you find yourself stalling on a lift. It's done worlds of good for me.

    If I may, do not weigh yourself this frequently. It's probably more productive to focus on the numbers on your lifts going up.
    Weigh yourself once a week, at the same time, under the same conditions.

    I like Monday morning after I take a shit, and before I have breakfast. Keeping the number of things that can influence the weight to a minimum help show you actual change. The amount of food eaten, water consumed, physical exertion, stress level of the day. etc... can all affect your weight. I've had my weigh fluctuate by ten pounds before/after a workout.

    The weight will get where it needs to be if you keep showing up. You've got this brother.
