    Well booked myself a trip to Costa Rica in September. Super good deal on the airfare so had to buy it haha. Looks like I have a little more motivation for keeping myself on track this summer.

    Thank Penny, that is what I am thinking.

    My goal for this time period is 103kg. My goal for the year is 100kg, my stretch goal is 90kg. Started at 126kg in January. Up until late June I was heavily focused on weight training - I've now decreased my weight lifting from 6 to 3 times a week and have replaced it with cardio with no change in calorie intake. Interested to see where it goes. Hoping it'll be a hot boy winter.

    It has been good to get back into this thread after missing the last one. I’ve found that I’ve thought far more about my nutrition and exercise this week than I have in a while.

    Daily average calories 2860
    Protein 207 fat 103 carbs 268

    Thats my water retention gone.
    Trained 3 time at the gym push, pull, legs, with a rest day inbetween and managed a 22 mile walk last sunday in preparation for the endurance hike I have at the end of the month.
    My nutrition is stupidly inflated thanks to the 22 mile walk sunday and the feast that came after it 4478 calories, 270g protein, 451 carbs and 164 fat.
    My goal other days are eat under or close to 2300, 189 protein and 79 fat fill the rest of the calories with carbs as required.
    I'll continue with my big refeeds after the huge walks because if I dont I feel absolutely crap.
    Next one is monday 23 miles with 4500ft of elevation.
    Thats the first week done keep up the hard work 💪

    June 25- 331
    July 2- 227.2

    Going on vacation the next 2 weeks. My already shaky will power will be tested. 😬. I'll also be using a different scale so I'll have to see if there's much difference between the two.

    Sept 10th:

    Was on the ball this week with exercise and tracking. Realized I was getting bored with my workouts and switched to a double PPL routine with 2 options for P&P workouts. Pulled in a mix of new and old exercises which definitely had me feeling strong, and this strength gave me renewed motivation for my food tracking, which was better than it's been since my foot was damaged a month ago. Craving workouts again. Injury recovery seems to have hit a major turning point. Following some post-exercise mobility work for my foot I heard/felt a loud SNAP, and haven't felt any pain in it since.

    Very excited because bringing back old favorite exercises meant I was able to get feedback for the strength side of my body recomp goal, which the scale is crap at capturing. My favorite result this week was from my assisted pull ups. It's been 2 months since I last cycled them out in favor of lat row pull downs and my assist weight was down THIRTY lbs. My bicep curls were also up 10-15lbs. Pull ups are my personal proxy for fitness at the moment.

    Husband is wanting me to find a way to pull deadlifts into my program but I'm not sure how to fit it into a PPL routine without messing up my rest days for my other exercises and still hitting each body part 2x/week. If anyone has thoughts on how to do this that would be great.

    June 25 - 230.9lbs
    July 2 - 227.8lbs

    goal is still ~200 by end of this challenge - but i know i may not get quite there - either way - i'll keep going - long term goal ~170

    i was almost perfect with tracking everything going into my mouth. i freakin love the hidrate water bottles (steel is best because ice is easier to deal with and stays cold 24 hours) and their app for stayin on my ass about water intake. that is on point for ~3 weeks now.

    Been there before, with that exact same benchmark actually, back in November. 240s are rotten. Do you have a protocol for how to handle up weeks? You sound frustrated.

    Decided to move my target weigh in day from Monday to Friday and would like to jump in - good luck to everyone else! Summer's a good time to lose weight in my experience, with the heat and all the outdoor activities to do. Going to end my own cut a little bit earlier for a personal goal.

    Starting weight 296.5lbs (1 Jan)
    Started training hard (and got a PT) from 1 May at 291lbs.

    Former 6ft (183cm) 185-190lb marathon runner (last marathon in 2015 sub 3hrs30).

    Now in my early 50s. Packed on weight these last few years as work has been crazy and I haven’t had time for my runs. No stranger to training hard and have been at PT three times a week with 1-2 exercise units every day in between.

    Pleased with results of weight training over the past couple of months and now bench pressing 100KG (220lbs) as a novice in his 50s.

    Update** Been stuck around 270 far too long. Trying hard to push through to 250 at which point I will start running again - slowly on an inclined treadmill.

    Checking in from Jan-Mar crew.

    started OCT, 15, 2020 at 316lbs. Apr - May I was stuck at 282 for a long time.

    Haven't weighed myself in a bit, but belt is another notch in, and XL shirts are fitting well again...

    I will weigh myself on friday morning.

    I'm betting 269-273 range. (which would be good movement for me)

    Noticing stomach is much smaller, and ass/legs are trimming up. I haven't been wearing jeans too much lately, so it's an easy tell when I put them on.

    I will look "good" at 255, and will have abs anywhere under 230. Probably into a 36 jean at 235.

    Goal range + 220-235 depending on how I look in the mirror, I will likely shift back to a more bodybuilding oriented workout around 245.

    Best lifts... 23YO 6'2 238 (360 bench, 575 squat, 620-630 dead, Incline Bench 315 3X10 . all raw, no belts, no straps, for reps of 2-3, no "supps")

    Hooray, this is almost exactly what my count anticipated from estimated TDEE. A measured yet significant pace at 1% loss in a week without any kind of deliberate carb manipulation is a good sign. Training hasn't greatly suffered, either. One week of several, however: got to play the long game to win.

    Keeping the calories high as still training towards an endurance walk at the end of the month/early aug.
    The average calories are literally only that high as I wolfed down well over 5k on Monday during and after a 24 mile walk through some hills.
    So far so good...
    9 weeks to squash 3kg is achievable 👍

    June 25 - 230.9lbs
    July 2 - 227.8lbs
    July 9 - 226.9lbs

    I mean at least I didn’t gain. I expect weeks of non movement or slight increase. I have been super busy with kids and illnesses this week - so not much time for anything. But I think that really, I have hit the point of recognizing I need to get over my fears of injuries and start really moving again. Funny how the past can give you drive or make you curl up like a dumba$5. Im normally in the first group - but as I get older - I slip into the second from time to time.

    Going to get the weight room (here at home) squared away this weekend so I can actually get to benches, rack, bars, plates. It became our ‘just put it in there’ room during c19 and buying in bulk lest we not be able to buy again 😵‍💫😵‍💫

    Y’all have a great week and keep dropping those #s

    Mother of all family drama this week. A family member had a complete psychotic break and needed to be hospitalized. As my husband and I were their closest kin with mental health training we took charge of the situation. It's been incredibly stressful trying to juggle the needs of the various people with a stake in this drama... It's meant a lot of late nights, mad-dash car rides, half-truth phone calls and uncomfortable conversations over take-out.

    They are out now with new meds, new odd-ball friends, new therapists, a new plan, and... for the time being, a new home on our pull-out couch... which was the best outcome they could have had.

    It's irritating to lose another week of progress to a random life event so soon after messing up my ankle, but it is what it is... and at least helping a relative is a better reason for bloating up than: "I got mad because I had to do stuff so I ate a block of cheese..." which would have been an old excuse.

    Well ya - being a good human is an increíble thing. Sounds like you have some adventures ahead also - you clearly have the strength you need for this journey - but also have some grace with yourself.

    peace

    Sure, I'm in. I mean I'm weighing myself anyways so may as well weigh in here and motivate others if possible.

    Starting weight was 500 6 months ago, now 389 after a long plateau about two weeks back. My long term goal is 200lbs since I have no idea how much weight will be loose skin I'm going to assume I'll have 20lbs or so of loose skin at some point down the line.

    June 25th: 402lbs

    It's always motivating to see larger individuals tackling their weight problems. I work with a lot of people getting their health back together through my career and larger individuals tend to be my favorites because their work ethic (when they recognize they need to change) is always impressive... I wouldn't beat yourself up too much about your plateau. Plateaus, especially at larger sizes tend to serve as mini-trials for life at goal weight, and I've seen a lot of people make some great strides in the head-game of weight loss even while weightloss has stalled. It gives time for the mind to catch up with the body, and can help you recommit if you feel like your power to sustain your effort is going down. The trick is not regaining too much.

    Appreciate the words for sure! Yeah, I caught the wife cheating and left which push started my Health&Fitness journey and so far so good! Plateau was definitely annoying but I up'd my calories from 1200 to 1700 and it's been doing much better now, slowly but surely. Learning all of what I have and still learning I plan to make this an experience for all to see and be able to share and help people in need whether they are morbidly obese or not. I may just go all the way and get into actually becoming a fitness trainer, personal trainer, dietitian or maybe even all the above as I've truly been enjoying the process of my Health&Fitness journey.

    Yeah I think that would be a wise way to reinvent yourself following the weight loss. One of the common factors among people who keep large amounts of weight loss off is a radical change in identity and community centered around health... That can take the form of a career change, picking up a sport, or a new passion around something physical.

    I would be cautious about dietitian alone. Of all the health-centered occupations it seems to offer the least support for personal health maintenance... there are a lot of possible reasons for this, but my personal suspicion is that dieticians seem to spend most of their time around unhealthy people pretty set in their ways, whereas other health-centered professions have a higher exposure to people actively working TOWARDS some goal rather than theoretically running AWAY from something, which is more motivating to someone in maintenance and not as actively worried about... Death and disability.

    Yeah, I feel you on that, good point. I will definitely keep that in mind, I may not go into it but maybe still learn it to fully get 100% of the knowledge of every aspect of it to fully help someone but makes some sense with the Dietitian part still may pursue it more for just the knowledge part of it maybe not so much as career part of it, if that makes sense. I hope to keep in touch with you throughout this weight loss and hope to show some motivation and inspiration for you and many others along the way. I'm down 112 pounds as of right now but we'll see if it stays that way come next weigh in! Stay happy and healthy friend.
