Still a long way to go but I'm pretty proud with my progress so far!

I was near 325 lbs and currently I am somewhere near 280-282~

I'm aiming for 250 before next summer :)

[QUOTE=Fawnl;1159498513]Wow... That is possibly the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Do you know what lean body mass is? Or body composition?[/QUOTE]

LOL Fawnl, I think you have misinterpreted my post. What you have said is (in a way) what I was trying to say.
How can one calculate lean body mass? You need to know your body fat and weight, right? So you need to take measurements, with a scale and body fat calculator!

I mean if the scale and body fat are showing that nothing has changed, surely one can't say that his/her mirror is showing different and signs of improvement. I hope that I'm clarifying things and not making things worse.

bodyfat cannot be measured in tenths of a digit since there is not a single way to calculate it accurately. One can only get a rough estimate. I think mirror is one of the best ways to see that you are still progressing and donīt go back to binge-eating and being depressed when the scale hasnīt moved for 3+ weeks.

^^^This. Sometimes, your scale does more damage than good. I DO see what your saying, but unless your getting a DEXA scan every couple of days, you have to trust your mind and your eyes to see the small improvements. A tape measure may tell me that I have stayed the exact same in arm size over the past 3 months. That doesn't mean that I haven't made significant changes in that arm. The difference may SOUND minuscule, but if I gain lean mass in my arms from lifting and my arms are obviously leaning out (I can see more definition, vascularity, muscle striation starting to be visible) but the tape measure AND the scale say "No change here", how can we say there has been no progress?

I DO think that checking yourself weekly is good practice. But there does come a point in the weight loss journey where you have to start trusting yourself to KNOW when changes are happening. We all hit a point where it appears we have hit a plateau. But we may be gaining lean muscle mass at the same speed we are losing body fat and that is why the scale isn't changing.

If you rely solely on your numbers changing and not on the actual changes that you can SEE in the mirror... you're setting yourself up to fail.

Thank you!! I feel like it too. Now it's just a continuation of that diet but increasing clean calories and carbs and starting to train heavy. Put some clean mass on.

Thanks for the inspiration all. I'm 340lbs and I absolutely FEAR loosing all of this weight with nothing but loose skin to show for it. I'm learning now about macros and nutrition. Best I can do now is just a dozen or so push ups and crunches followed by a jog on the treadmill at the gym in my apartment.

I can only see the results from a month and a half because I don't have a scale in the place where I moved due to school. But... you know you're making progress when your one month old pants are big and they want to fall down from you, so it can be seen. ;)

I started at 242lbs and now I'm at 183lbs. Will I have loose skin? Maybe, but I look better, feel myself better and everything is way-way better than was before. I only regret 1 thing that I didn't started earlier. So go for it slow and steady! The first steps are always the hardest but once you'll get used to it, you'll love it I promise!

Thanks man and it was probally over the course of 3 years. Didnt do it in one shot. Had many ups and downs. I gained weight and lost weight multiple times throughout the years. I probally lost over 200 pounds in total haha. This past summer was the most strict i was with my diet and i managed to get down to a low enough weight for me to feel like i can finally bulk.

Excellent job! It was very wise not to let that fat stick to you during many years. The later you start, the more difficult it becomes.

Hi Everyone!

I went from FAT (bf ~23%, 195,1 lbs) to ATHLETIC (bf 8,0%, 174,6 lbs) in just 150 day, with only 20-25 min training per day (home training)! I use only 2 dumbbells (8,5 kg / 19 lbs each). Without supplements, fatburners, drugs, steroids etc.!! I'm fully natural! I don't want to say that it works for everybody, BUT for me worked/works.

6 Month Transformation - 4 month CUT & 2 months into Bulk
Good day to All,
Just dropping onto this awesome thread with my achievements over the last 6 months, at the beginning of April this year at 5ft 8in i weighed in at 185 pounds, i cut down to 141 in 4 months following the dreaded Keto diet and as of the past 2 months i got back on the carbs with the goal to bulk to around 160-165 hopefully lean mass and low BF%, my current BF is 9% after starting out at 19%.
My workouts are all done at home with bodyweight exercises and the use of 2 x 20lb dumbells focusing on slow movements good form and time under tension, 3 days full body workouts 1 days rest then repeat.
I shedded the fat on my cut by walking for 30-45 mins each day, very theraputic whilst listening to audio books.
Im am now currently (in the October photo) 151 pounds, up 10 pounds from my cut and BF % is slowly dropping still, so weight gain could be a mixture of carb intake, water, glycogen and muscle, ive ruled out fat as my BF is the same.
Please thanks for reading/ looking i wish each and everyone here the very best in their life and fitness ventures and any questions feel free to ask.
Cheers for your time!
