    Wow very good. Did you need surgery after? X

    I had a panniculectomy about 6 weeks after this photo was taken. Up until then I had to wear shapewear to keep everything in place.

    Thank you, I appreciate your reply. Seems to be the thing to do these days, if you want to just not lose weight but change your overall body composition. I want to get into heavy lifting, I've only ever done cardio with some dumbbell work/boxing. Definitely going to give it a try!

    My B/L is quite similar but I guess I have to increase my calorie intake. I've just gotten back to tracking which is definitely helping.

    Thanks again and I wish you continued success!
    Impressive!!! Great job! May I ask what type of training you did and eating?

    I have a free gym at work so I try to go on my lunch break most days. I do weight lifting, mostly lower body (squats, deadlifts, leg press, leg extension each 100-150 lbs) and some upper body but alot lighter(20-50 lbs). Try to do 10-15 minutes of cardio as a warm up to lifting 3X a week with 2X a week of either just cardio (run, stairmaster) for 30-45 min or some HIIT dumbbell workout. I do try to do some pushups and situps (on the inverted sit up bench) every time I was in the gym, only 3 sets of 5-10. Other than that I referee soccer games as a side job so I get a fair amount of steps/cardio on those days (+20K steps).

    As far as eating, I had a MFP goal of 1500-1800 depending on how active I am. On workdays, I eat a lighter breakfast of coffee+protein and either fruit, oatmeal, or a protein shake and have a salad every workday for lunch with lots of diced veggies added. Typically eat pasta, meat+veggies, or some kinda stirfry for dinner.
    On weekends I eat more, eggs and bacon for breakfast and big dinners. At first I was completely ruining all my workweek progress by overeating on the weekends but tracking consistently helped me realize that and be more mindful with my weekend eating. I started eating lighter lunches to compensate for my indulgent weekend dinners.

    This is 9 months after gym 4 to 5 times a week.. Non impact cardio only due to injuries but as of last month hitting the weights now... So was hoping to lose more by now...

    That’s awesome! Good work!
