    I just switched to MFP after 2 years of using MyPlate. The database is more accurate, you can add friends, and the app has a barcode reader. It's slower adding entries though.

    I'm just finishing a cut that I started October 1st. I'd say it was successful... I dropped 18-20 lbs with keto. No counting calories the first 9 weeks and no exercising.

    This time around, I plan on improving my weak areas. Continuing with keto, MFP for anything that goes into my mouth, cutting out most--but not all--of the dairy such as cheese and cream (which are big on keto), increasing protein, making time for a lifting regimen, drinking .5-1 gallon of water each day, and having less "free" days/meals. I'm also implementing a morning fast, so I consume a low amount of calories throughout the day, but have more to eat later on.

    Off to a great start. I got through the first two workouts (2 day split) fairly well and now experiencing the worst DOMS since I started my weight loss journey back in September 2009. Wow, I will never skip out on the gym again. The first week of soreness is brutal. It should take me another week or two to get the recovery cycles much more rapidly.

    Phew.

    Hoping to lose 35 lb by the end.

    I have started IF and with some basic maths worked out that I need a deficit of 7000 calories a week to lose 1kg. So I have started to eat at 1500 calories. I'm going to be counting my calories on myfitnesspal but not gonna worry about hitting my macros.

    First workout of the competition completed. Just a short one and nothing particularly strenuous but every little counts.

    It sure does! Slow and steady wins the race. Don't rush anything and you'll hit personal goals easily.

    History tells me I'm pretty bad at sticking to anything like this for very long but hopefully you are correct! I feel pretty angry in general and that has traditionally been a good motivator for me though. Hopefully I will have some money soon for a gym membership.

    Don't look at it long-term, it's easy to burn yourself out or get discouraged it's so far away. Try looking at it with small goals. Each week is a new competition. How much can I lose during this week? If I don't lose any this week, what can I do to improve next week? It's easier to wrap your brain around small goals like that instead of trying to reach a grand goal in a very short amount of time.

    Additionally, while the gym helps a bunch, it's not entirely necessary. For the first three months of my journey, all I did was walk more when I used to drive and did body weight exercises. It wasn't until somebody on my shift at work mentioned he went to the gym and I started to go with him.

    I'm happy to have any loss each week honestly - just glad to be going in the right direction. It is only disheartening if you are hungry all the time, can't eat much of your favourite things and still only lose a pound. Excuses are just that though.

    I agree on the no gym front - I always had a bench in my room when I was younger and I still have a kettlebell and a few dumbells with me but there are obviously fewer distractions at the gym. I'm considering starting boxing or something but one thing at a time.

    looks like you and I make up 67% of the 400lb club in this competition! By the end of this, we'll be far away from a 400lb number! Good luck to you! What kind of workout/nutrition you doing?

    As long as you provide your body with the necessary nutrients, then it shouldn't be hungry all the time. At first you may feel a bit depleted, but that will go away after the first two weeks or so. I'm a firm believer if you get all necessary nutrients and micro-nutrients then you will not feel lethargic and hungry all the time. For the last week, I've went from eating fast food twice a day to eating whole/nutritious foods and do not feel hungry at all. Drinking a ton of water helps too.

    A good crutch is caffeine. I use it plenty at times. Black coffee with nothing added is my choice. It gets me amped up and I don't think about food at all. If coffee is not your thing, try green tea (chilled or hot works).

    So we do; last I looked we made up the entire club but it seems someone else has joined us! I hope so, I would like to be 380 by the end and wouldn't complain if I were lower!

    Nutrition wise the broad (starting) plan is to stick around 2000 calories and try to hit 150g of protein a day (which is, admittedly, completely arbitrary). Workout wise I'm going to do a mainly kettlebell focused workout three times a week with some ancillary stuff in-between. Not much of a plan but it's something! How about yourself mate so I know what to copy if your results are much better than mine

    I drink a lot of coffee. I think my coffee intake shall probably rise at the expense of my tea intake. I rarely drink green tea myself (though I own a box, and some with lemon which isn't very nice frankly). I have some caffeine tablets somewhere as well but they might not be fit for consumption anymore and I would rather avoid being that dependent on caffeine if I can help it.

    It doesn't help that I sleep so poorly as well. But I think that may rectify itself when my diet is better and I lose some weight.

    100% truth. You'll be amazed once that first night of uninterrupted sleep happens and you'll wonder why you didn't start eating healthier sooner. I still remember my first night of deep sleep after getting healthy. I woke up and felt like a million bucks. That continued for a few years until I fell off the wagon healthy wise and started to have broken sleep. I'm trying to get back to that point by joining this competition and eating healthier.

    I'd avoid the tablets if you can. Coffee should be sufficient.

    Honestly I don't remember the last time I had good, regular sleep. I was an insomniac for quite a while a couple of years back where I wouldn't sleep for one or two nights a week and now my sleep is rubbish but tends at least to occur every night! Good sleep would very much be a welcome byproduct or sorting myself out!

    Hopefully! You've lost 100ibs or so(?) - I can imagine you feel pretty great. You are basically the weight I want to eventually get back to.

    Yes, good sleep will improve a lot in life.

    Aye, I used to be around 350 pounds. The lowest I've been in the past 10 years is 205 pounds. I achieved that goal about 6 months ago, but then fell off the wagon because I lost my job due to a personal conflict. I was able to keep my routine while working full-time because it gave me structure. Once I had no job then I had no structure and personal willpower to continue my gym routine. I was always at home playing around on my computer and would just eat anything that I had in the house or go out to get some fast food.

    Now that I'm working again, I have successfully maintained a set sleeping schedule and workout routine. It's refreshing to get back to this point as it makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something rather than just sitting around my house all day doing basically nothing.

    Nutrition wise the broad (starting) plan is to stick around 2000 calories and try to hit 150g of protein a day (which is, admittedly, completely arbitrary). Workout wise I'm going to do a mainly kettlebell focused workout three times a week with some ancillary stuff in-between. Not much of a plan but it's something! How about yourself mate so I know what to copy if your results are much better than mine
    Well we all have to start somewhere. Currently at 401, hoping to be near 340 by end of March. I'm going to the gym 6 days a week, twice a day. Intensive Cardio in the Morning on an empty stomach, and weight lifting at night (alternating between upper body and lower body). I've done all the math and it stated I should be eating around 4500 calories to lose weight, seems really high though. Been hitting under 2000 for about a week now. Hopeing to get new scale in the mail any day to see if it's working. If not I'll weigh in on Friday @ the gym.
