    It's sad, even on this site there are people who want to make everything about themselves and try to put you down if you don't immediately stroke their ego.

    Well, **** 'em. I don't need...

    That's how I feel about this site. People looking for information are greeted with open hostility or masturbatory ****posting at best. I have to wonder how many people were entirely turned off from...

    Yeah, now you're just trolling on purpose. Go away.




    I do plan to finish my current goal first with the method that has been working, and then I'm open to reevaluating. My current goal is...

    You've made passive aggressive snarky comments in every post, and you're pretending that our difference in approach is the reason you got negged. We both know you don't actually believe that. Go...

    I can't even begin to imagine what that must be like, though I didn't mean to hit a nerve; I really wasn't judging what you need to do, just saying that it's not the approach I intend to take. I do...

    I appreciate the response, and no judgment here, but I don't think the "20 beers a day and not tracking calories" plan is the best option for me.

    Regarding your edit... I'm not in my 20s, I'm...

    Here's some context that you don't yet have. My weight loss journey has consisted of part of 2012 followed by a decade where I neglected both my physical and mental health. That has been its own...

    I see, I could have worded that better. I was asking if I was calculating my caloric needs correctly or if there was another way to do it, not if I should change my goals and sequence of activities...

    You probably mean well, but I think you've gotten the wrong idea. I'm not assuming I'll be gaining at my maximum; I wanted to know if my maximum was significantly lower than a younger beginner...

    Fair enough, thanks.
  • Need assistance with calorie target (beginner, bulking)

    From what I understand, an absolute beginner in their 20s can hope to gain half a pound of muscle per week (in the best case), which would require a caloric surplus of about 250. I will be an...

    163.9.

    According to BMI, I'm no longer "overweight". Which is laughable, because I'm obviously still overweight.

    But progress is good. I haven't quite been hitting the two pounds per week...

    Ten days ago I was at 172. Sheesh.

    There are exactly four weeks left before my trip. Six pounds in four weeks shouldn't be too hard, barring any salt-related plateaus...

    166.6. That's a new low, and if I'm lucky, an indication that I've finally broken out of the range I was stuck in. Just for fun I ran the numbers:

    7/28: 167.5, 32 lbs fat, 135 lbs muscle...

    Once again I was up to 170 and now I'm back to 168-ish. My body composition is improving (less fat at same weight), but it still feels like gaining and losing the same two pounds over and over...

    This morning I'm down to 170.5. I'm surprised that I haven't shed the rest of the water weight yet, particularly because I've been tracking every calorie and exercising daily, and I'm 100% certain...

    It's really ridiculous how much water my body holds on to after eating anything with salt in it. On Saturday I was down to 167. Then I had a single slice of pizza for dinner on Sunday, with all...

    169.9. 60 pounds down!

    I may need to bring my calories up a bit after the upcoming trip, I'm not sure that cutting this hard is sustainable long term.
