    Amazing transformation! I have a question for you. Did your maintenance calories increase with the build up of muscle and if so by how much? Right now maintenance for me is around 1350 calories/day. I'm wondering if building some muscle will increase that.

    Hi

    I'm not at maintenance yet. The last bit of weight is getting me out of my mind. I only had 200g (60.2 kg). Then I put back in a couple of days until I got to 61.5 kg and now I'm blocked at 60.7 kg. So... still 700 grams to go. I knew the last bit of weight was the hardest to lose but it's very frustrating. Still, I'm trying not to stress myself about it, because I exercised and ate with a deficit. It might be that I stopped taking my birth control pills. Anyways...

    I have 1400 kcal/day and it actually got lower since losing weight, because the more weight I've lost, the fewer calories I need to function. I don't think I've added that much muscular mass to increase my daily intake. I was VERY atrophied so it's better to say that I've toned my body. I've never measured my body fat percentage.

    Regarding maintenance, I'm still gathering information. When I'll get there, I'll lower the protein intake a bit and I have to eat back the calories lost by exercising.

    Happy New Year!

    Last year my target was to lose 9 kg (to have 60 kg) and at the doctor's order, I had to stop exercising and do some physiotherapy and massages that didn't help at all with my back pains. Fortunately, over the last 3 months I managed to maintain my weight and I have 59.1 kg now (I oscillate between 57.5 and 59 - so I lost 10 kg and I'm very happy about it!
    The gastritis is a hassle because I'm allowed to eat only a few things of what I uses to. I miss my nuts and seeds, my salads, my fruits. And a glass of wine at the end of a hard day. On January 3rd I started exercising again. It's sad too see how fast I got out of shape and how little resistance I have left. 20 minutes in and I was tired and my muscles hurt already. After each session everything hurts sooo bad. I was happy to notice that I felt like redoing and old habit, so it wasn't a horrible experience like the first time I started this active life. BUT last year I made the impossible in 4 months and 100 exercising sessions. Now I'm lighter and I already know that I can do it.
    Are you ready?! Let's do this!!!

    Give yourself some time and you will see that your old strength will come back quick enough! You made some fabulous progress last year and should be very proud of yourself :smile:

    Starting weight on January 13th was 65.2kg. I want to get to 57-58kg (lost the fat). The next goal will be to add some lean muscle (and then I won't care about what the scale shows). :)

    TinaZ great inspiring story and journey. I'm in a similar space. Lost quite a bit in 2016, gained some back. Always train 4-5/7 but my eating is ad hoc, so yes ready to reign it all in. good on you for sharing the ups and downs of life and your progress. Thats what it is; progress. Can I join you on your trip down? I'm off to do that abs workout now. Thanks for the link. will send a friend request.
