    Thanks dude.

    And no, not early, I live in Japan and it is currently the 21st here.

    I don't use the scale weight for the specific day either, I use my average for the week.

    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    I'm enjoying the process of learning how to run, more specifically I'm working on my running form and cadence and learning how to get the most out of my runs with the least amount of exertion. I was always a horrible runner because I use to take these huge bounding strides, creating a ton of stress on my body and making me a lot more tired than I needed to be, but now I'm learning how to keep my strides short, ensuring my weight stays over my feet and I'm not reaching to far forward with my strides, keeping my hips from dropping or swinging too much, keeping my upper body as silent as possible, and keeping my cadence consistent. I've only been running for about 3 weeks and each 5k continues to get faster and faster, I know that there's no way that I will continue on that trend, but for now I'm just enjoying the process - plus its burning a chit-ton of calories as I've discovered.

    Super cool. I wish that I would take such a methodical approach to running. I only loosely think about my form, stride and cadence.

    I specifically like to put things in my training when I'm cutting that get easier with weight loss since I'm not gonna pr on my press squat or deadlift in a deficit

    Weighted pull ups and running are a staple when I'm in a deficit so that I can continue to make progress at something. I wish they didn't shut down my old running app that had all my runs for many years logged in it. I vaguely remember being able to shave x amount of time off my 5k for each 5 pounds lost. You will probably see the same. Each pound lost will shave a llttle off your time.

    Good week again. 0.6 kg loss puts a smile in my face. I have been doing quite a lot of snowboarding lately. (Bought a season pass for local ski center.) I don't know how much that effects my TDEE, but right now it feels like weight dropping quite nicely without much of an effort. I hope this continues.

    Not a great deal of change between Friday and Friday but that's mainly down to natural fluctuations. My 7 day rolling average has dropped by more.

    Still dropping about 1.5 pounds a week according to a linear regression that I am using to plan ahead and make adjustments, so expecting a bigger Friday drop next week based on that.

    Also went to a restaurant last night, albeit with moderate portions and an accommodation for having to ballpark higher calorie food. It is promising and encouraging to have had such a solid drop without having to rule that out entirely, although the first week back on is always the most affected by the irrelevant factors.

    Sounds absolutely crazy but this gaining healthy weight lark is just as hard as losing it.
    Had 2 weeks at 3k calories since I last checked in.
    Got a nutrition plan given to me by a coach on instagram who I have become chatty with.
    I was shocked to see that I was pretty much already eating what he suggested food wise.
    Going to push out another 2 weeks at 3k cals before adding another 250.
    Deadlift has risen again whilst in a cut 120kg was my 1 rep max. Last Saturday I did 160kg for two reps.
    Squats up from 60kg to 100kg
    Bench is still around the 90kg mark.

    Hard to compare deads and squats as I was doing some miles walking each week when training in a cut.
    I'd say my average before I started hiking was around 90kg squat, 90kg bench and 100kg Deadlifts.

    Im not getting fat all waist measurements are the same as the end of the last cut.

    Keep working 💪
    See you in 2 weeks

    Heading in the right direction but I feel like I’ve left my foot off the gas a bit. Still being mindful and eating better overall so I’m glad to see progress. It’s all motivating me to try harder. I’m grateful I found this thread, helps keep me accountable.

    Cheers to a good weekend all!

    OMG I came here Jan 2nd to see if anyone was still doing these and didn't see this, so I was coming back to start one for Feb 1st but can I jump in? I know it's kinda late, but I've re-started my journey just before Christmas and have my weigh in for January 1st.

    I used to join these about 10 years ago, and credit these challenges with helping me lose 85+ lbs back then. Ended up in my 5th car accident and was in physio forever and couldn't work out, then I just started the cycle of beating myself up because no workouts mean weight gain. Gained a small amount of weight back each year since and need to work it off again. Not giving up just because I fell back. Used to beat myself up but realized it took me very long to regain it and regrets just keep me from accomplishing anything.

    WRT bolded, this couldn't be further from the truth, and I think this point of view is what really prevents people from succeeding. They just get it stuck in their head that if they can't work out they won't lose weight so they stop paying attention to the one thing that really matters - calories/dietary choices.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    I would encourage everyone struggling with consistent progress to learn to love training and leading an active lifestyle, regardless of your proximity to the end goal. Ideally, it should be one of the invigorating, lively and rewarding areas of life; even in the temporary discomfort of exertion, there is an engagement and thrill, eager to be your friend if you embrace it.

    I started this weight loss journey just after Easter last year. Now I’m noticing that Hot Cross Buns are starting to appear in the shops for Easter 2022, so I’ve been looking up the macros in them to see what I would have been consuming this time last year.

    One hot cross bun contains 40g of carbohydrates including 17g of sugar and I could eat 6 of them in a day. I don’t think I want to bring back my 2021 Easter eating habits into 2022 while cutting!

    I’m not following a strict eating target at the moment with measuring numbers of macros but after weighing in at 88.1 kg today, down from 116 kg last Easter, I think I have a pretty good feel for how much I can eat while losing weight.

    I raised my calories a little this week as I just felt like I wanted to slow things down a bit and my energy levels were starting to drop. I'm feeling good now and should be able to hold at this level for a few weeks.

    Hmm. 9 weeks to lose 4kg is still possible, but even if I only lost 3kg I would call that a win as I'd be seeing a 90 figure.

    Well, only 0.1 kg loss this week. Today my weight was actually 0.6 kg below last weeks weight, but I use weekly averages and earlier this week my weight went up for some reason bringing this weeks average weight higher. I see no problem with this. I expect bigger loss next week.

    A **** week where you just want to shoot the scale when it won't budge despite the hunger and low energy. Maintaining strength for upper body, slight strength gains for lower body.

    Weight still trending down going by the trend from daily measurements since the start of Jan, so not reading anything into this measurement or the apparent "plateau" this entire week. Decided to raise my calories slightly now (+ 50 calories daily) as I know myself well enough to know that when the scale starts jumping up and down combined with performance drop and low energy it's a recipe for me eventually cracking and ruining the deficit, so I'll eat a bit more and just accept that it will be moving slowly now.

    Pretty solid week for me. Kept to an average approximate calorie allowance of ~2700 per day and ran a continuous 84 minutes on a nice day this week to some really good music. Yesterday, I ate PSMF at 1200 calories, so some of this loss is "artificial" and will go back just as soon as my GI tract receives more food, but still created a couple thousand calories' for the weekend fun bank not to disrupt my progress.

    Yeah probably!

    This is kind of a fight between the animal part of my brain and the reasonable part. I know the above like you say, but I still run into self-control problems. So I've started to plan for inevitable self-control failures in advance :P

    This is also why cutting for me works best when I go very low on calories on weekdays and higher in weekends. If I tried eating the same every day I'd just fail in the weekends anyway. So I just incorporate my self-control problems into the planning lol

    maybe my calories are slightly too high as i'd like to lose 3 kg per month initially. again, it could just be a fluctuation since i don't bother weighing daily anymore even though i know i should. i'm looking to be under 72.5 kg next week, preferably under 70 by march
