  • YES LIFT!! I could give you all the reasons why you should, hormone balance, bone density, increase metabolism, strength to carry your shopping,...etc but instead just try it and see how you and your body feels. I mean probably a little sore to sta…
  • I am 5'6", 160lbs and 24% body fat. I do about 7.5 hours of dedicated exercise a week (cardio, heavy lifting, HIIT, pilates) and then try and hit 6km of walking a day. My maintenance is at about 2600. I have been in maintenance since March, I h…
  • (Quote) Ok perfect, thanks. Maybe one day I will get to that point but for now, slight kcal deficit, high protein, and heavyweights will hopefully do the job (with a little sprinkle of cardio for that heart health).
  • So been in maintenance since March. Haven't been purposely recomping (I know that is not a real word :D) however, lifting heavy weights has done its magic and definitely changed my body as you can see below. So decided to take the recomp serious a…
  • I can reiterate what these other posters have said. Been in maintenance since March and my loose skin is so much better than it was. Just took a little patience. No doubt that weight lifting and hydration definitely play a part in making the skin t…
  • (Quote) Thanks. I do 2 days heavy weights upper and lower, 2 days strength circuits, 2 days cardio mainly training for the half marathon I have in sept. However, to be honest the main thing I think that has made them look better is time as my skin …
  • Hey, Weight loss is not linear on anyone. You know in your heart of hearts if you have been on point with your nutrition. If you have, then this is just a fluctuation or you are adding muscle mass. If not then just tighten up a bit, nothing extreme…
  • (Quote) That an incredible achievement. You should be so proud of yourself and the work you have done.
  • I wish I could give you a hug. I am so sorry you are having a horrendous day/time. To echo some of the previous messages, the crazy person would have called you names no matter what you look like, it is just unfortunate that they managed to find a t…
  • (Quote) Massive congratulations on the weight loss!! Definitely get some smaller underwear. It was the only I kept buying on my way down. Just got those cotton packs for 5 in each size. However, now I am at the size I want I may have brought some …
  • (Image) 5'6" and 100lbs down in just under 11 months. Lift heavy 3 times a week plus a session of pilates, yoga, run, HITT and watt bike. Eat 200kcals due to the exercise. See looking to do 10 more lbs. We will see!
  • (Quote) New clothes. I am now a UK size 10 and I don't want to get any smaller than that. Now I can buy the clothes I have always dreamed about that actually fit. For the last 11 month nothing has fitted more than a week or two. It is such a joy to…
  • 100lbs in 11 months. Have 10lbs to go. Hoping to get the done in the next two months. I have been averaging 1% of BW per week. So at the start (260lbs) it was 2.6/3lbs and it is now 1.5lbs a week. This is pretty aggressive but not unhealthy. I eat…
  • (Quote) Oh amazing, congrats on losing so much xx
  • Massive kudos on getting this far. A massive achievement. I am 10lbs away too. For me I have found changing my exercise from mostly resistant cardio (e.g. HITT and Spinning) to mostly heavy lifting (e.g. Body Weight Squats and Deadlift) has really …
  • (Quote) This is/You are amazing. Your determination is seriously impressive. I tip my hat to you, Sir.
  • (Quote) I am not going to lie I had to Google CiCo 😳😂!!! When I started i did focus in Calories in vs Calories out, however, I found myself competing with MFP to see how many calories I could burn (this is why I don't play team sports)!! What a fo…
  • (Quote) ❤️
  • (Quote) Oh I don't (and have never) expect support. That's not the problem. They just keep telling me to stop losing weight and exercising. Even though quite a lot of them are smaller than me still.
  • Oh you guys are so sweet. The love has made me shed a little tear. It's been a big day. (Quote) My tips: - give yourself permission to experiment with kcals, macros and exercise to see what works for you. This is your journey, only you will reall…
  • All scales BF% are wildly inaccurate. The only thing they can do slightly is record a trend over a LONG period of time. Therefore, wouldn't worry about which setting to use, pick one and sit to it to do the trend. The actual BF% is probably wrong an…
  • I can 100% relate. When people ask me what's been the toughest bit of losing 100lbs, 100% it has been the mental fight with anxiety over food and over exercise. What I have done (I am no expert or have it figured out btw); 1) I have actually done…
  • I would echo the posters above. You need more than squats for building muscle in glutes and legs. For example a recent scientific paper outline a muscle build in the glutes of twins. Hip thrust generated more glute build than squats. There are a l…
  • I am 59days smoke free. Haven't got the longevity that some of these amazing posters before have before but I can tell you my story if it will help. I smoked on and off for 20years (I am also 35). Most of my life I consider it a good thing (don't a…

  • For me protein was key, alongside weight training. I upped the protein and also started with heavy lifting and the weight is falling off. I have even had to up the kcals recently from 1500 to 2000kcal to slow it down a bit as I was losing at over 2l…
  • Massive congratulations on the 46lbs loss. I have gone from 260lbs to 163lbs currently (5'6" female). I started sedentary and then added walking, then spin classes, the resistance circuits and now heavy lifting (this is over the last 10 months…
  • Someone once told me that Abs are built in the gym but revealed in the kitchen. Not sure how true that is but it was a good line. The ONLY way to lose weight is to be in a calorie deficit. The easiest way to do that is watching what you eat, if you…
  • Hey, So losing weight is really for no-one other than yourself. If you want to drop some body fat and feel confident then that is your business. As long as you do it in a healthy way, people around should you leave you to it. If they don't support …
