    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.

    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.
