    Been stuck near 303 for 2.5 weeks. Decided to lower my calories a hundred to 2400 and then just really try to keep my lifts as big as possible. Not down at all about it just want to see the 2s. My cut of many years ago the 2s started really going faster and built on momentum.
    6'6" crew. Just trying to go beastmode every day at the gym. Tall/Fit and to finally go under 238.

    Favorite day: Leg Day
    Worst day: Tricep/Chest (Long arms = bench sucks)

    I am joining late if that is ok. Over the last 7 or 8 years, I have joined in 3 or 4 of these but I have never finished one, and my weight has continued to climb. I am done with being out of shape. I weighed in this morning at 297 Lbs. After turning 51 last week on July 5th, I vowed be under 200 Lbs buy my next Birthday, book it!!!!

    Nearly "relapsed," if I were to call it so, yesterday after going out. I kept thinking about just relaxing and letting everything go for a day; but I managed to not cave in to my urges after I though about my goal weight and my current weight (about how I am so close). I don't want to return back to the same diet that led me to being way overweight as before. I hope everyone's doing well this week.

    The number 1 excuse I seem to be giving myself is always "relax today and work hard at it from tomorrow. Enjoy today as the last day of 'freedom.'" But I realized that this is a never-ending cycle of relaxation today and I end up saying the same thing next day and so on. You will never find improvement until you work hard at it from today, right now, right this instance.

    Keep at it and well done for not totally giving in

    My ethic is never 'relax/go hard'. It's finding that in between. Finding an eating style that is moderate and I can sustain every day so I don't feel either super restricted or like I need a big release on any one day

    I find my 'relaxation' days turn into 'relaxation' weekends and then weeks.

    You got to find that balance. Even when you do, mess up, and get back on it.

    Well they shut my gym back down in California which is super unhelpful and angered me. I went to an anytime fitness location near me that barely had 3 people on a busy day with masks, lots of cleaning solutions, etc it was like having the 3000sq place to myself.

    Back to doing home workouts which im trying to change up each day I lift though im limited. Been on check with calories though... I shall see what the count is for my weigh in tomorrow morning.

    I agree with Alex also. I find the days that are harder is to think of the next day. If you are hungry/looking for a reason to eat something.... just think of the next day. I am a huge breakfast fan. I prefer to get 1/4 of my calories first thing in the morning. Some eggs, sausage (or bacon on a few days), mixed with some cheese, onion, coooked spinach... that meal excites me like no other. I have a weird thing with Brie. I take only 60 calories worth of Brie (.6 oz) and then mix it in sometimes. It gives it a cheesy taste that i can only describe as magical and then i forget about the past night. I've learned the feeling of going without is far smaller than the feeling of giving in. I always felt worse giving in to something over-calorie or not fitting my macros.

    One thing that is helping me to keep focus is a physical activity right before the time I know that my mind will begin to think something weird.
    It's been 23 days that I realized that such mechanism of emotional management is helping me. A lot.

    Some of these 23 days I didn't workout. And they were the toughest ones. Last saturday - one of these days without physical activities - I only believed that the day has finished when I opened my eyes on sunday morning. It was a terrible fight against myself.

    But I can't handle intense workouts daily. One day is a good workout and the following is only bicycle and streching. Both of them help me to avoid cheating, but weight training is the one that cleans every little corner of my mind.

    I think it varies from each one of us. Someone can find this cleaner mechanism walking, walking with the dog, painting, etc.

    In my case, if I stop, waiting for meal-time... without doing other things... it's complicated.

    But tomorrow it will be our meeting! Another motivation to keep the commitment.

    See you soon!

    I had a new record low earlier in the week so still feeling pretty good!! I have also begun a split weight routine I plan on doing for the next 90 day. Does anyone else in the thread track their calories? I have been using MyFitnessPal and got a scale to double check food amounts at home. I was just wondering what other peoples strategies were?

    Thanks

    It’s really the only way to learn how to be 100% successful at this. I used to do it religiously for over a year for everything I ate. Now I do it mainly as occasional spot checks for myself since I got really good at estimating over that first year of weight loss. It can be a very eye opening experience for most people.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Basically stuck at 303 still. Not depressed or anything about it. Obviously want it to go down but my lifts have been great and protein count has been high. I figure itll drop soon. I am also a myfitnesspal app user. I measure out everything because its really quick and I spend probably 4 minutes total of my entire day if you count the scans and weighing. 2400 cals has taken some getting used to... that 100 difference is huge.

    It's very easy to underestimate. Anyways, keep plugging away everyone.

    Trying to leave 5-htp+gaba+melatonin. As a consequence: sleeping few hours, stress, thinking in junk food every single minute.
    This weekend will be tough.

    But it is good to know that next Friday another weight in UFC meeting here will happen.

    Nice weekend for all of you!

    I'm sorry, but there is absolutely no way you are maintaining 303 lbs at 6'6" on 2400 calories a day, you should have dropped at least 10 lbs by now at that low a calorie level. I'm 6'5" and 214 and eating 2600 cals a day and still dropping 2+ lbs a week.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    ^ This all the way.

    I keep seeing people underestimating what they eat.

    I am cutting on 2400 kcal right now at under 200 lbs and losing just fine week-to-week.

    People need to be honest with themselves and to really track properly all the things that go into their mouths.

    Also, not to be harsh on anybody, but the goals set in this thread of people aiming to lose 10-15 lbs over a 3-month period, especially when they are obese, to me screams laziness - which is exactly what got them here in the first place.

    Not to be harsh? You're joking right? It's not up to you to judge how fast or slow people here lose weight. Years ago I lost the better part of almost 90 lbs in these threads, some weeks losing 4 lbs, some losing 1 some going backwards. Do you think that's lazy? Losing 80 f'n lbs??? Does it even matter how long it took? NOPE.

    This is the most toxic comment I have ever seen in one of these and VERY disgusting. Thought we were better than that? UNbelievable. You might want to go back and read the first post to get an idea of what this thread is all about.

    Tell me we are better than this in a thread like this. GO TO MISC if you want to be a jerk.

    Late posting again sorry! We went camping FINALLY, it was great. I needed to get away, working 7 days per week most of the year and not having any sort of vacay takes a toll on me.

    Down 2lbs...sweet! More importantly I'm feeling a change in strength, also my posture. Chronic back pain is a b*tch.

    Well, sorry you took it like that.

    To me it seems that the same folks participate in threads like that all the time and just spin their wheels for the most part, as they simply underestimate how many calories they consume and cannot be honest with themselves.

    The idea of such threads has always been helping others get a good start and try and change for the better and improve their lifestyle, in general.

    You said it yourself, you've been participating in threads like this one for years, lost some lbs, gained them back etc, which is not changing one's lifestyle, but rather giving a short-term hope and then getting back to the old habits.

    Truth is harsh, I get that.

    BUT, sometimes, you need to realize that helping NOT always means agreeing and cheering for one another but also stating facts and giving constructive feedback.

    And again, it is easier for obese people to safely lose weight faster and you should be aiming on improving with each thread, and not starting each one with the same weight etc.

    Be honest how much you eat and you'll see results faster than ever.

    It's not how I took it, it's how it actually is....toxic and judgemental.

    I have not been here for consecutive years, was here, lost weight then had a catastrophic injury after a hit and run. It was my 5th car accident and put me in physio for a long time, past injuries compounded with this one. Being unable to work out and watch the weight come back but being unable to do anything about it was a real mind f. It wasn't an excuse I made up, I had no control over what happened. Did I give up at some point? Yes, temporarily but I owned up to that and came back here. I take full responsibility for my weight (re)gain, but I am FAR from lazy.

    You do not know what goes on in people's lives that cause them to gain, flounder, or just struggle. I've met some people here who's lives are a **** storm, so they take a little longer to get where they need to be. Weight loss, especially in large amounts is a process, an every changing process and not the same for everyone. That said, everyone can make that change.

    Calling people lazy is not constructive feedback and no one said you had to agree. You've literally said nothing then all of a sudden you are hurling insults. Calorie counting is often over or under estimated, it's super common and needs to be adjusted as time goes on. People sometimes take a while to figure that out. Tips and analysis from others is what helped me succeed the first time around.

    You can point things out without the nastiness. Your "truth" is not mine.

    Calories in vs calories out - start there. Eat fewer calories and move more.

    Stop denying and making excuses as to why you keep yo-yo-ing. It's due to the choices made, nothing more.

    It's hard to admit it, but laziness plays the biggest factor, nothing else. good luck! Hope that until end of September you hit your goal 285 lbs.

    Basically stuck at 303 still. Not depressed or anything about it. Obviously want it to go down but my lifts have been great and protein count has been high. I figure itll drop soon. I am also a myfitnesspal app user. I measure out everything because its really quick and I spend probably 4 minutes total of my entire day if you count the scans and weighing. 2400 cals has taken some getting used to... that 100 difference is huge.

    It's very easy to underestimate. Anyways, keep plugging away everyone.

    I am exactly in the same situation as you, but for a longer time and at a minor height (I am 6'00''). Dropped from 2300 and now 2200.
    For me it began now drop little pounds, but still in plateau.

    Keep going, man!
    Thank you, again, for opening this thread.

    To me it seems that the same folks participate in threads like that all the time and just spin their wheels for the most part, as they simply underestimate how many calories they consume and cannot be honest with themselves.

    The idea of such threads has always been helping others get a good start and try and change for the better and improve their lifestyle, in general.

    You said it yourself, you've been participating in threads like this one for years, lost some lbs, gained them back etc, which is not changing one's lifestyle, but rather giving a short-term hope and then getting back to the old habits.

    Truth is harsh, I get that.

    BUT, sometimes, you need to realize that helping NOT always means agreeing and cheering for one another but also stating facts and giving constructive feedback.

    And again, it is easier for obese people to safely lose weight faster and you should be aiming on improving with each thread, and not starting each one with the same weight etc.

    Be honest how much you eat and you'll see results faster than ever.

    Down 2lbs...sweet! More importantly I'm feeling a change in strength, also my posture. Chronic back pain is a b*tch.
