    I started off exercising 5 times a week for at least 20 mins, then slowly upped my workouts to 40 mins to an hour. I've recently got a new job so workouts have taken a bit of a back burner but I still make sure I workout on days off, so at the moment my exercise plan is about an hour 3 times a week. I use FitnessBlender and their Youtube channel, and started with the beginner workouts etc (so difficulties 1 and 2).

    Sorry for the long post but it's kinda hard to sum up so many lifestyle changes and still keep it concise haha. Hope this helps :)

    Have you sent your pics to Kelli and Daniel? It's amazing the progress you've made, and made me want to get back on with their fitness plans. :) Thanks!

    @fanncy0626 - Hi thanks for asking, all I’ve done is stuck (pretty religiously) to my calorie limit (1260 a day which seems low for my height but I’m sedentary (desk job in a tiny office so I barely move for most of the day). I’m careful to get enough protein each day as I don’t want to lose muscle mass, after that I’m not too bothered about fat/carbs at present.

    No food is ‘off limits’ – but being on low calories I need to be careful with nutrition, so my diet is pretty healthy. If I fancy a treat I just have a very small amount of it. I don’t tend to drink my calories (barring the occasional blow-out!). My diary is open if you want to take a look (bear in mind I had a camping trip in the last week when both logging and diet went completely awry – but that’s fine, I’m back to it now and I felt confident to let rip for a few days knowing I’d pick it up again this week…)!!

    My weight loss may seem fast but at first I only lost 2lb per week (even in the first couple of weeks I never got the initial water loss that people talk about - I’ve always drunk plenty of water so I probably wasn’t retaining water to begin with). Recently my loss has slowed to more like 1lb per week which is intentional as I get closer to goal.

    I’ve exercised approx 4/5 times a week with cardio plus strength training, plus the odd run - and I eat about 50% of exercise calories back.

    I don’t see this as a short-term thing to get me to my goal weight. I’ve enjoyed the process and it hasn’t been too hard. I’m loving being back in the gym and barring injury I can’t see any reason why this isn’t a lifetime change. I now understand food and nutritional values far better - so my hope is that in the future I’ll be successful at maintaining…

    Good luck everyone :smiley:

    Hi, I am 5'11" and at 142.5 lb. Found this site last week and am very thankful for all the great tools that are available here, and for free!

    I am not sure about my scale being correct, because when I go to doctors office every year, I weight in about 8 lb more than on home scale. But I am not going to worry about it, and concentrate on the difference.

    Here are my before pictures. I would like to go down 12-15lb. My waist is 30.0 and hips are 38.5 and would like to loose at least 2in - 4in on both. I need to look at my measurements from 10 years ago and see what they were and aim for that.
    Last 10 years I work an office job, sit all day long, and that has added these extra lb, plus not minding much what I eat. This website is great on keeping up with food calories!


    Really glad to see another tall-y shooting for a lower weight range. I am 5'11 and goal weight of 130-135. I am currently sitting at 142.5 though you look WAY better than I do at this point!
