  • Country outside small town (1,400) in Oklahoma (which total population is basically 4 million, so not even U.S. medium size city, Dallas/Fort Worth is 5 hours away)
  • Hi, feel free to add me. I deal with depression and anxiety and find motivation hit or miss (constantly thinking whats the point of doing this etc.) I do however, enjoy encouraging others and helps with my own struggles
  • I would do anything for those that I love. Most say it but truly don't mean it. Issue is, I love easily (dont take much for someone to earn my love) so I get burned a lot by people who don't feel the same about me as I do them.
  • Honestly, I'm thinking what is the point of doing this. Work hard and all I gain is fat and pain in my elbows, wrist, hips, knees, etc... 43 soon to be 44 guess I might as well give up and be 1) fat slob or 2) skinny fat and weak. Smh and tired
  • Really? I could care less what type of panties a woman is wearing. (Granny panties, no panties, thong, plain panties, colorful panties, boy cut panties, whatever) only time a man would see you are wearing granny panties is if you two were intimate with each other, and im sorry, those things are coming off so could care…
  • Like I said in my post, I doubt very many women wear uncomfortable things for men (<=5%) so I don't think women do it for attention from men.
  • 43 dad of 4 (3 of which are teenagers and 1 is 21)
  • Why do women wear uncomfortable things and complain? I know supposed to be my opinion but honestly want to know. Some I guess would be for "attention" from men, but I doubt very many does it for that reason. (Less than 5% or?) Most I would say to compete with other women. But, hmmm?
  • All the comments about that they should have lost more weight need to realize everyone's metabolism is NOT the same. Age, activity level, muscle mass, etc. make this study very difficult to authenticate let alone compare to you or whoever's journey. If BF group had a history of training or physically demanding jobs and had…
  • I have to say this. You really do have to want it for you to accomplish any long lasting changes. First, diet is the majority of where it is and sweating has very little to do with "getting toned" (I've always worked outside for work(I'm a welder) etc every day and sweat severally during summer, I would never had been fat…
  • Try each day to be better than the day before. Set a goal and work towards it, as long as you are doing your work, dont worry about scale. I know it can be hard and depressing, but truth is, this is a long road, you wont get there tomorrow but as long as you work at it you will. That said you have to put in the work, if…
  • This is a long road, not short race. Start stringing together good days, if you have a miss, try again tomorrow, then next day and so on. 1 day is not enough to celebrate or throw your hands up.
  • 6'- 0" 239.0 pounds
  • Bcaa= branch chain amino acids. The idea behind them is they are making of more complex protein, and body is supposed to absorb faster, allowing one to have the building block to create more muscle. Are they important? Sure, but not going to matter if you supplement bcaas or not. As long as you are getting plenty of…
  • I was the same, and understand. Just go and worry about doing your thing, within a few mins you will be at home. Now that dont mean people at gym wont bug you or irritate you, but you wont be nervous/afraid anymore.
  • It's hard to ignore and I've been on this journey for years. That said you've got to learn to not obsess with the scale and just continue working and logging. If you are doing that and you are in calorie deficit weight will come off....
  • You can do it. That said it takes work and dedication, if it were easy you (and everyone else) would have done it long ago. To help with feeling full, eat nuts and seeds (dont go crazy 1 to 2 servings for snacks) eat more natural fat in your meals (fish, nuts, etc.) And eat more protein. For me, most carbs (pasta, bread,…
  • Need more friends too. Will be as supportive as I can and looking for motivation too. 42 year old (43 on 14th) male and I'm 6'-0" Been on here since 2013, 8-13-2013 to 9-2014 went from 295+ pounds to 162.2, stayed on here up until 2016 during bulk. At start of this round was 270ish, now sitting at 240
  • If I'm say 500 calories or less below my daily goal I let it slide if I'm feeling full etc... so that I have padding for my week. If by the end of the week I'm again 500 or so calories below goal I dont worry about it. If on the other hand daily but especially weekly calories are extremely below goal I will try to make it…
  • At 6-3 and 207 pounds, I dont think your bf% is correct. But even if it is, I wouldn't have off days. 7 days a week with a small (500 calories) weekly deficit is most i would go. Do 12 week blocks at a time, between deficit and maintenance and take your time. To keep from burning up more muscle than needed. How much…
  • For me weekly worked best. Weight wont change daily other than water weight. Last time I lost about a pound a week. This time around doing 1/2 pound a week, so weight dont change but every 3-4 weeks anyways.
  • Think it has to do with how obsessed you become during journey. For me, originally set goal of 195 pounds, (8-13-13 weighed 295+, 9-2014 got down to 162.4 pounds) but became about seeing how lean I could get (wanted abs). Anyways i certainly got the blues (8 months or so in and didnt feel normal until few months into bulk.…
  • Sorry but I have no interest or intention of watching it. (Havent watched solo either) for me, star wars was over at Return of the Jedi...
  • I'm sorry to say this but I say it to remind you ladies, for whatever reason women have harder time dropping weight, it seems to take longer and many I know get unmotivated fairly quickly. With all that you got going on, (beyond kids, we have no idea here but just kids can be hard) I'm sure that will slow things a little.…
  • Diets should be used as a tool. I lost 130 pounds low carb, (more than I planned) That's not really sustainable for life and always. That said, I understand where my weakness is and what I have to avoid so I don't get fat. After I lost weight I wanted to bulk up (I was 162.2 pounds) and gain muscle. Which i did, but i…
  • Relax, breath, and just do one day at a time. First, water can be 10 pounds extra (or more) of body weight, and that's for me a man (sorry women tend to carry more, depending on time of month etc.) If you are strength training seriously, muscles tend to soak up water, and add weight (sorry your not gonna gain 5-10 pounds…
  • Once or twice is not really gonna effect as long as you buckle down and dont keep doing it. You will likely "gain" a couple pounds however. Water weight/sodium retention and if you've been low carb and you ate a bunch of carbs will increase weight too.
