SandTiger's work in progress thread - starting weight 245

Sand_TIgerSand_TIger Member Posts: 318 Member Member Posts: 318 Member
I started January 6 2020 at 245 pounds. My height is 5' 3". I'm counting calories and doing some strength training, since the weather warmed up I've been swimming. As of the start of this thread I've lost 53 pounds and am currently at 192. I started out at about 50% body fat, and right now I'm a little under 40% body fat. I started at BMI of 40 and now I'm at around 35. Muscle mass is currently 25.5 percent and hasn't dropped appreciably.

I'll update this thread as I make significant improvements. :smiley:

Anyway, here's my starting picture, taken in the middle of 2019:

    Next up, we have a picture from fairly early on in the process, late January to be specific. I'd lost ten pounds or so at that point.

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I weighed this morning - got the same weight but better breakdown than previously.

    So my updated numbers as of this morning are weight: 292 pounds, body fat: 37.7%, muscle: 25.7, BMI 34.

    My goal calories are 1400 plus half of exercise, and I sometimes come in lower than that. Scale says my basal metabolic rate is around 1920, so that's around right for weight loss. I'm 41 years old in a few days. I'll keep posting my progress on this thread as I go. I've never had the guts to set up my own progress thread before, ha ha!
