So I guess I'll start.
I'm at my highest weight right now since High School, when I managed to lose 34kg.
I maintaned for quite a while, fluctuating a bit between 73kg and 76kg, but that wouldn't bother me too much, although I wasn't happy, either. Than my PCOS symptons and other metabolical issues started worsening, my age also took its toll and my almost-married life as well. Now here we are. It's been harder than ever to lose it, due to the before mentioned factors, but I do understand that if I don't monitor it closely, I'll spiral even further.
Starting weight: 90kg
Firt Goal: 80kg
Second Goal: 73kg
Third Goal: Anything under 60kg, really. I haven't seen that number since 2013.
Other goals: Have a 73cm waist again. Being able to see my hipbones again, because I thought they looked cute. Fit into L sized jeans again.
I'll measure myself some other time, but for reference, I'm 175cm tall, and I do believe my waist is around 86cm right now. fml
IF, because it's good for PCOS in general. At least 13 hours, 16h being ideal.
1h30 of weekly exercise.
Calorie tracking, try my best to stay under 1250kcal.
As for today, I did go above it a bit, staying at aprox. 1370.
Not sure if I will do daily reports? But'll try to weigh in every 15 days or so. Maybe weekly if I feel progress.
Wish me luck!

I was hoping a thread like this would pop up again, as I've been trying to find something to keep me accountable for sticking with my weight loss goals.
I'm 5'8", 150lb, and my waist is 29.5". For now, I'm aiming to get down to at least 140lb by the time university starts again next year in September. I don't think that I'm fat by any means, but I know that I wouldn't be considered thin either. I'd like to adopt healthier lifestyle habits and lose some weight while I'm at it.
Currently I'm planning on eating 1500 calories (or less) per day, exercising 3 times a week, and limiting myself to eating out for dinner to once per week. I guess these don't really sound that radical for the average person, but I have really bad eating habits where I tend not to cook and get takeout all the time, so I'm just trying to do small adjustments for now so I don't end up crashing and giving up. My focus is less on the number of my weight and more on just trying to be more healthy at the moment. Once summer starts, I can probably increase my exercise time and my calorie intake will probably decrease naturally (don't know why hot weather suppresses my appetite).
I'll probably go with biweekly reports like the other anon so I don't obsess too much over recording my progress. Good luck anons! I hope all of your fitness and health dreams come true!
good luck anon! honestly, you just have to start cooking healthy meals for yourself instead of getting takeout. i've read somewhere that if we cook for ourselves we tend to eat better and more healthy. PLUS, you'll lose weight but obtain some money ;)
rooting for you! your journey reminds me of mine, pull through!
I feel like most farmers eat way too little. You should cut out calories, but not eat under your BMR. We have almost the same history: I once was a fatty, then lost 35 kg, then gained it back after like two years, now am fatty again. I am your height (well, 178 cm) and weight and I cut out too many calories, too, because I am desperate. But still, I eat more than 1250. If you eat so little, it will be way harder to keep up the diet, you will fuck up your metabolism (which will make losing weight even harder) and you will gain it back quickly. I wish you luck and I hope we can both reach our goals, but I think you are a bit extreme considering your height and weight. Also, are you doing sports?
Thanks for your concern anon, really!
The problem is that my metabolism is already fucked, because I have some metabolic issues connected to my PCOS. I swear to god, I go even a bit over like 1400kcal and I start gaining. It's not even funny.
Like today I made the mistake of weighing myself again and was up one kg. I hope this is just water weight or whatever, but I would be lying if I said it didn't make me sad.
The good side of it is that I don't feel very hungry, which makes very easy for me to do Intermittent Fasting, but my the problem is that I still have a big appetite. I just love making and eating food.
I don't do any sports btw. I used to jump rope but I am pretty rusty now, and sometimes I use a mini bike that we have at home. It's surprisingly tiring.

>>112910>I swear to god, I go even a bit over like 1400kcal and I start gaining.
That is horrible! Have you tried different kinds of diets? I am no expert, but perhaps something like trying to go into ketosis (so, no carb) could help? Or is this also not working because of PCOS? I just can’t imagine how you cope considering we’re the same height/weight. Even with 1500 calories, I feel weak after a while and get really hungry.
I also know what you mean about the appetite. I love cooking and eating, and counting calories has shown me how many calories my food actually has. I am also struggling with my diet because I easily dismiss it. Right now, there are so many birthday parties with amazing food; and after cheating, it is difficult for me to go back to dieting. When I lost weight for the first time, I was so determined! I wish I could be like that again, but I also used to be a huge smoker. I don’t smoke anymore, and now my addiction to tasty food got even worse.

I have been gaining weight these past few months, i'm really unhappy about it.
Went up from 69 to 74 kg, not an extreme amount but more than enough to make me sad. I'm 170 cm btw.
Goal: first, get back to 69 kg.
Second: get to 60 kg
How: going to the gym again (or exercise at home) for at least 45 minutes, try for 4 times a week. Also, register calories on MAL around 1500 a day.
Accountable: I'll try to update in a month (seems like a reasonable amount of time to see some progress)
Thank you anon! I can imagine how quit smoking would make food taste better. An ex smoker friend of mine also said it would curb his hunger as well, so not only food didn't taste as good, but he also didn't even feel like eating for long periods of time. But hey, it's for the best you both stopped!
About the low carb diet, yeah, you are completely right! When I was doing keto (dirty keto, but still) was the only time that I could go over 1500kcal (I usually would eat around 1800 because I had a lot of cheese) and I was still losing. On top of that, my skin was the best it has ever been. My energy was also higher.
BUT I fell off track big time and now it's been a bit harder to incorporate it again to my diet, I will see if I can try and do it post-Easter, but it's kinda hard to start doing it. My skin has gotten so bad since I started eating high carb again though, so that's a nice motivation.
To the log:
I did jump rope again yesterday, and albeit rusty, I did better than I was expecting, doing around 800 skips. Today I am super busy, but I'll try and see if I can jump again.
I went very overboard with my calories yesterday, though. 1615kcal, oof
But I've been consistently doing IF, at least 15 hours everyday. Honestly, I could go longer, but my gluttony gets in the way kek
Let me explain.
Everyone in my mothers family stratted our life as ultra skinny, muh metabolism, sedentary lifestyle/ eat whatever until 30. Then they start to gain weight, starting with stomach, bringing them to “normal” American weight standards. No biggie, right? Normal weight isn’t bad, right? Apparently in my faintly it is because by 40 almost everyone has Beetus and a bunch of other health problems like high blood pressure. No one is fatty. Everyone looks “okay”. I don’t wanna make people feel bad who are trying to lose 40 ilbs but body types are different, and BMI isn’t a hard science.

obvi BMI is not that
informative but it is a decent guideline. that just sounds like some sort of adipose tissue condition bc normally it is able to expand with incoming lipids for quite a bit before getting fucked over diabetes-tier. maybe get it checked out? sounds rough though, my condolences

You can do it, fellow PCOS anon! Why do you get anxious going to the gym? Would it help if it was a women-only place? (if there's such place where you live)
For my yesterday's log:
I went to a work gathering, and ate waaay above my daily intake goal, especially considering it was a social gathering that had a lot of food.
My final intake was 1951
Admittedly, there was also a lot of work, and considering the building had no windows, I was also sweating more than normal.
But I did woke up kinda bloated today, well..
Anyway, today I'll try to fast for a little longer (to also help the bloating go away faster) and I downloaded the Freeletics app. Will try to either do a workout from them, or jump rope. Maybe both if I feel inspired.
Same height and weight too, 178cm and recently hit my all time high of 90kg. Feels like shit.
I was always a really slim, if not skinny girl and then ruined my body completely with starving, followed by years of binge eating.
I plan to not count calories, because whenever I tried that in the past I immediately got too obsessive again and also because using apps like myfitnesspal which tells you just how incredibly long it'll take to lose all that weight make me fell even more hopeless.
My dream weight would be way too low and unhealthy, so I'll instead set it at 59kg - the lowest I could go without being underweight. But honestly, I'd die to just be below 70 again, too.
I've always really hated my tall height, but now I'm grateful, because if i was short or even average I'd look like a blob at my current bmi.
In winter I could at least somewhat hide my fat a bit, but it's absolutely terrible in summer, just wearing a tshirt makes me so uncomfortable.
I still live at home so I'll eat a normal/unhealthy lunch, something healthy for breakfast and then try to skip dinner. Fruit or wholegrain bread if I must snack. I'll also run everyday, when the weather allows it.
Skipping meals is the worst thing you can do. You'll be hungry and deficient and end up binging on junk - especially if that's your history. Eat three times a day with healthy whole foods, use my fitness app to make sure you're meeting your nutrient needs and snack on low-calorie snacks in between. Don't run everyday because you'll also get sick of it and give up.
You need to take a more sustainable approach that you enjoy or you're going to completely fail.

Work gatherings are the worst… And, like I said before, birthdays. There are weeks where people bring cake, donuts etc. to our office everyday. Lunch break with co-workers is difficult, too. I am applying for a new job right now (not because of the cake though lol) and once I found one, I want to try meal prepping. >>113074
Welcome to the club, anon. I also used to be ashamed of my height, but it really hides the weight. Still, it would look better without all the extra fat. I remember when I first lost weight, everyone complimented my long, skinny legs and it felt really good. Feels double shitty now though. Good luck to you!! I understand the obsessive part with counting calories, but as long as you still eat enough, it is maybe worth another try?
Thank you! The gym doesn't make me anxious, I just sometimes don't want to go out because I'm already anxious. I have PTSD and some days are harder than others and on those hard days I just feel exhausted already so it makes me believe I can't go workout, but the funny thing is going to the gym helps me feel energized & less anxious.
You have a pretty good set plan, you're able to recognize why you might feel bloated and you'll do a couple extra things to help you feel regulated. Not pushing yourself too hard, which is great!
There's a difference between helping them watch their weight and making a big deal out of one bite
of cake - during a going away celebration too. She's moving away from home, and her mom gets all weird when she says "I get to have one bite for good luck though". Sorry but that doesn't seem healthy nor encouraging, and you don't have to be jealous to see that.
>>113098>she essentially made her daughters goddesses
Yeah and Margo made her daughter a kawaii loli model…
It's honestly fucked up if you can't see just how wrong this is. They're only "goddesses" because they felt pressured to go under the knife a dozen times at the age of barely 20.
Plus your dear Yolanda would think of you as a disgusting fattie if you aspire to be a whopping 120 at only 5'5 lol

Hit my halfway point for my weight loss goal today, wanted to post somewhere.
Started at 220lbs, now down to 180, goal is 140. I'm 5'9 and in my 20s, eating 1500-1700cal a day and running about 15-20 miles a week.
To be honest I already look pretty good at this weight because I have very broad shoulders and its distributed well, but I really want to keep it up. At this rate I'll be at my goal hopefully in August.
File: 1555363113636.jpg (76.01 KB, 1278x558, Weight.jpg)
Guess I'll post too.
Actually I already started my weightloss journet this year in january. I started it because i have PCOS and last year in november my doctor had me stop taking the pill due to liver issues (that are now under control). In just two month and a half my weight skyrocketed from 69 kgs (152 lbs) to 74 kgs (163 lbs) whcich was my heaviest ever (also 35% bf%). I'm pretty short (163 cms or 5'4") so I started to get pretty round, moreover being overweight was taking its toll on my health (I had occasionally high blood pressure problems and blood sugar leves problems as diabetes runs in my family).
On January 8th I started pretty slow, just tracking calories (a 500 kcal deficit) and going to the gym like 2 times a week. In february I stepped up my game: I upped my deficit to -750 kcal and I actually started taking care of my macros (I ate 0 starchy foods like potatoes and bread and went for low glycemic index foods to minimize my insuline spikes during the day, I also started IF and slightly increased my protein intake). I also started going to the gym 3-4 times a week (mostly to do aerobics classes but once a week I did weights too). During march I still kept my clorie deficit at -750 kcal but i decided to start keto too for 3 weeks and it really hepled me when I palteaued at 71 kgs (156,5 lbs). I also started ditching the gym (not much time due to univesity getting in the way lmao) and I started walking/running outside with my bf and doing strength training at hoem with elastic bands and small weights. Now in april I decided to quit keto because even if it was working it was pretty expensive and it was kinda hard to keep up with it, I also lowered my calorie deficit back to -500 kcal and continued my low glycemic index regime. Training remained the same
I have a fitbit charge 2 and the fitbit aria 2 scale so i keep track of everything through the fitbit ecosystem. This morining i weghted myself and i finally reached my second weight goal (65kgs or 143 lbs), also got to 26% bf%. Also (which is the most impotrtant part imo) I don't have high blood pressure problems anymore, my blood sugar levels went back to normal and my blood test came back perfect.
My final goal is to get to 55 kgs (121 lbs) which is the weight a of most of my friends and they all look fab af, also I would like to get reid of my hormonal belly pouch, get a waist of at least 66 cms (25.9") and get at around 20% bf%. I plan on continuing with IF, a deficit of -500 kcal, running/walikng and strength training sessions at home. If you have any (possibly PCOS related) tips to aid in weightloss and/or on how to get a really tiny waist (without removing any ribs possibly) they are extremely welcome.
To all anons who want to lose weight:
You will make it, everyone has her own peace, losing weight is hard and you'll encounter some setbacks but don't let them drag you down, preseverance is the key to success <3

Posting this as I found this really helped me understand why I struggling with my gym routine some weeks with my menstrual cycle.
I know this is over a week old but LOL.
You really don't need to maintain at this point. You know you're underweight, maintenance is not the problem. In fact, once you gain the muscle that'll keep you from becoming a gross skinnyfat looking worm, you'll likely have gained 5-10lb, some of that being muscle.
In order to not become super gross muscular looking, just look up a basic strength training routine, probably 3-5 times a week. Squats and 5-10lb dumb bells for lifting should be fine. This stuff is readily available on youtube or any fitness website.

nta but I started at pretty much the same weight last summer and am now at 70 kg, and I'm aiming at ~60. I also had PCOS diagnosed and after I went below 83 kg my periods have miraculously become regular, like 28 +- 1 days regular. I thought I will never know this feel. It's funny I was the exact same weight when I got diagnosed. So it's more about tuning your metabolism than the raw numbers.
Overall it feels good to have some semblance of control over my body for once in my life, but I also still hate how I look. Also my hair is in a sad state, even though I generally eat better than I did. Oh well.

I've been doing Keto and intermittent fasting for a little under a month and I've gone from 164 to 153. While I don't think I'm going to do it long term, it's been great for me so far.
File: 1556113755861.jpg (115.71 KB, 1200x675, C33C85VWYAAKY9u.jpg)
I'm 25 years old, 155cm and my weight fluctuates between 155l-160lbs.
The year before last I lost a lot of weight, before I was way more than this after hitting a huge depression point in my life and then I gained a little in the last year and a half.
I work at Starbucks which makes it much harder to stick to strict rules because you get free drinks and are always trying things, and sometimes our supervisor gives us food from the pastry cabinet that would otherwise get thrown away. I live alone and my friends are long distance because otherwise I'd happily bring them these leftovers, it's so easy to eat them!!
So while the job itself is activity-heavy, I work 12 til around 9pm 4-5 times a week and cravings get bad.
I want to get out of these terrible habits. I get my lunch around 3pm and have a small dinner when I'm home but try to keep it as healthy and light as I can, so it's enough that I don't go to bed starving but nothing carby that's going to sit on my stomach.
I want to destroy all the flab and extra parts on me, in clothing you wouldn't suspect it but naked I can see those rolls and bits of flab that weren't there before.
My stomach/gut too…..I want out and I want to get back into healthier habits and self care.

I've been obese for a few years due to emotional eating and a lack of self-care, and for a formerly athletic person, it has been awful for my body image and self esteem. I'm currently at 168cm and 93kg /5'6" and 205lbs. I've lost a few pounds of fat in about 6 weeks but I do pretty heavy training at the gym and my muscles have grown at an insane rate, so on the scale, the numbers haven't gone down as much as I'd like to. However, my waist is now an inch smaller even when I was bloated, so that's something!
My base rule is just "calories in, calories out", eating about 1900kcal a day, putting me at a 500kcal deficit. I try to eat at school (where I live the uni cafeteria food is fresh and actually pretty good) every day. I try to eat as many greens and veggies as I can. I'm pretty picky, but there's usually enough variety to fill me. At home, I try to cook as much as I can. I've noticed it's actually hard to reach my daily calorie limit because what I eat now is less dense in calories compared to the crap I used to eat. I also treat myself from time to time with a small bar of chocolate, but I don't crave junk food as much anymore.
Speaking of self-care, I think my lifestyle changes have done wonders on my mental health (even though I'll admit that I'm a superficial bitch that wants to look hot in crop tops). My therapist commented on my increased energy and many of my friends have said I feel much more energetic and responsive. I'll try to not fall off these habits I've established and keep going!
Cheese doodles are so addictive, oh my God. I never bought them often, but when I did, it was impossible to stop. Those orange devils.
But for me, I used to drink juices and ice teas, which are packed with sugar. I love cool drinks so down the hatch they went, and I could never moderate how much I drank…

I'm recovering from an ED, after more than a decade of malnourishing myself, because I'm sick of the brain fog and fatigue. I don't want to be useless anymore.
I'm 5'8" and built pretty large (big shoulders, big ribcage, big hips, used to be reasonably muscular) so I want to get back to my pre-ED weight of 145-150. I used to be a rugby player, swimmer, and straight-A student, and I hate thinking about how I had to stop playing sports and drop out of high school because I wouldn't give my body enough food to function. I know I can't get those years back, and I've probably caused some permanent damage, but I'd like to take up a sport again and maybe try to get a degree.
Over the past few years I've made it back up to 130, but every time I try to eat more than 1400 calories in a day I freak out (which I'm working on ignoring since that's just a deeply ingrained bad habit, but it's hard to shake).
I'm going to work on eating more protein, which as a broke vegan with weird food anxieties means lots of chocolate soy milk, baked beans, and peanut butter banana sandwiches. I have an exercise bike and some small free weights, so alongside taking a walk every day I'm going to alternate between 30 minutes on the bike and a small free weight routine to rebuild muscle.
When I was younger I thought that eating as little as possible would somehow make people love and care about me, but all the people who do love and care about me tell me I need to start eating more, so I hope I can make them stop worrying. I also hope they can chip in for my new wardrobe.
Not the anon you are asking but I too do roughly 1500 calories and fit treats in here and there.
Some of my ways to have spare calories for snacks:
- Decide what my meals are that day. Oatmeal or a 2-egg omelette with some veggies have much fewer calories than two slices of toasted bread with jam. Lunch will be something low calorie like a couple pieces of fruit and a small yoghurt. Dinner will be something without carb-loaded ingredients. No pasta or potatoes. Roasted vegetables and chicken is delicious. Or perhaps something vegetarian?
- If you are like me and are used to eating large portions in order to feel full you might have already gotten close to your calorie limit after these meals simply because you need to not feel like you are starving yourself. This is when a little excercise comes into play. I honestly do not like excercising but when I know there is a sweet treat at the end of the tunnel it gets easier. And just twenty minutes of some stength excercises or intense bicycling will burn a good chunk of calories. If I have the time I prefer to take a long walk but you should see what you like best.
Now how to make the snack last more than one minute:
- Measure it out and plate it nicely. Having it look nice makes it a treat for the eyes as well of the taste buds and it feels like even more of a reward. You don't have to go overboard though :P
- Take smaller bites. It seems like such an obvious thing but I think we all know someone who finishes their food before everyone else because they scarf it down like a ravenous wolf, and if they can't go back for another serving they sit there watching everyone else enjoy their food. Eat your ice cream with a tea spoon. Your oreo cookie can easily be eaten in 4-5 bites. Take the time to really enjoy the flavour and texture.
As an end note I want you to remember that it is ok to have moments of weakness. Nobody is perfect and it takes a lot of discipline to maintain a diet with a healthy mindset. I hope some of these tips help you get a sweet treat once in a while :)
It could work on the basis that you end up eating less. Personally, I do intermittent fasting and also track calories (not extra rigorously though), but at the beginning, people are usually able to lose some weight just by eating less meals than usual. It's also a good routine to stick to once you get out of the dieting phase - I used to have problems with binging and overeating after ending a diet (and therefore quickly gaining everything back), but intermittent fasting helps to keep this in check.
Please tell me you’re eating fiber, anon>>113000
Barre classes or Pilates are great for toning without bulking >>113203
I agree with other anon about seeking therapy. CBT could be a good thing to look into.
Theres loads of 'at home' exercise videos on youtube you can look into! even buy yourself some weights if you can and work out!
If you can't work out at home for any reason walking anywhere for 1-2 hours is great cardio as well!
For cardio, you can try running or buy a cheap stationary bike/elliptical/similar equipment.
As for workouts, there are a ton of Youtube videos you can use - depending on if you want to do pilates, HIIT, body weight exercises, etc… I tend to keep a playlist and combine several random videos from different trainers into one circa 40 minute workout session to keep it fresh.
You can try channels such as Runtastic Fitness, Fitness Blender, Rebecca-Louise, Xhit Daily (this one is no longer updated), Holly Dolke, MadFit, blogilates, Chloe Ting, etc.
Hear this bullshit:
I've been pushing myself for about four months now. Decided to go all out, I'm talking my first ever grown-up Gym membership, workout clothes FOR WORKING OUT, NOT CHILLING AROUND THE HOUSE, stocking the fridge with veggies, diet-friendly shakes, etc, all that bullshit.
I go about my business. Discover I actually really enjoy working out and eating differently FEELS alot better.
But my weight? My weight gives zero fucks.
So I finally have my check up with my primary doc. I'm upset and annoyed and thought 'Sure, I'd have SOME issues' since I don't have a gallbladder.
But instead my doc points out that might not be the issue.
The issue MAY be my hormones because I only have one ovary.
I thought that having my ovary removed because of a cancer scare would be the last time it fucked me over but figures it'd come back to haunt me when I'm trying to be a healthy shit.
So I'm seeing my women's health doc in a week and feel so god damn anxious and hope they have a solution for me or atleast some advice.
Just feels crappy, y'know?

Joining this so I can take a look again in after awhile to read about the changes!
I'm currently 62kg at 5'8 (174cm). My goal is to get to 55kg. All my weight goes to my face so it's super obvious when I drop weight and my face is already quite round from the prednisone i'm taking for my health issues. Trying to stay at 1200 calories a day too. I'll weigh myself halfway through this month to see if anything changed.
Hey! Triplets? I’m 5’8 with the same goals as you two and same intake.
I don’t work out and I’ve been unemployed for several months so there’s barely any exercise in my life at the moment. I’m currently trying to snap myself out of a depressed period.
I let myself get to 67kg. A year ago when I was active, employed and more life happy, I weighed 57 kg and had been maintaining that weight for years. I remember getting to that weight successfully by having an intake of 1200 and also not working out. This time I want to try running and eventually lifting. Small goals.
Sorry for drunken/rambling. Good luck girls!

Wow pretty exciting having similar heights and goals! 61.5kg is really good! I'm a bit worried to weigh myself in the next week because I fell off my diet a bit, it's okay though since I still have a couple more days to drop a pound or two. I'm also very bottom heavy, 100% pearshape. It's sort of nice because my arms and belly are never pudgy but having pudgy legs also sucks in a lot of ways. When I say my BMI and stuff people usually assume I'm skinnier than I am because of the height! Too bad I'm quite skinnyfat, I might get the motivation to actually work out a bit after I dropped some weight in the beginning.
I was a bit of flubber chubber in my early years of high school (so like 9-10 grade, my highest weight was 152lbs with me being 5'5) but got serious about being healthy and fit during the summer I was going in 11th grade. I so badly wanted to be look cute in a swimsuit instead of feeling self conscious because of my thunder thighs and stomach. It was awesome, I was hitting the gym almost everyday, cooked pretty much all of my own meals, and was starting to get abs. I got down to 120 lbs and I felt great.
But then, it all got thrown away because of some toxic people and influences in my life and I ended up with an ED. It sucked royal ding dong. I honestly can't be trusted to count calories because I'm worried I'll become obsessive with it again and I no longer use a scale because I would end up weighing myself too often in it would ruin my day if I didn't see the number get smaller. Looking back, I feel ashamed for ruining my body like that.
Then came college. Had a terrible schedule so I was up super early and would come home super late. This meant that gym time was impossible to squeeze in because getting around where I live is a bitch. Also, still had some eating issues which made me afraid of eating out so I just wouldn't eat at all.
So, for a good couple of years I hardly worked out and I became super skinny fat. The cellulite was BAD and made me afraid to wear a swimsuit.
However, I did at least get over the ED thing which is a plus.
Now my goals are to tone up and eat as healthy as I can. I have some cellulite on the sides of my thighs that bother me so I want to minimize them as much as possible.
I try to either hike or hit the gym at least 3 to 4 times a week. I hate doing cardio in the gym because I get bored, so if any anons are having a hard time with that, trying mixing in some hiking if you have a safe trail available. I also walk everywhere at school so if I can't make it to the gym then I at least got some speed walking in. Also, when I'm taking a break from school work I usually life weights or do some sort of ab workout like planking. I hope by next year I'll get more toned and start working on some abs.
Good luck to everyone, you can do it!
I have a big enough ass that I get wedgies frequently just from walking, and the only ones that don't ride up eventually are big huge granny panties. Or something like thongs that can't ride up anyway.
I personally wear the granny panties when exercising.

OP here and I know I am superduper late, but hey, finally the scale moved! I am currently at 88.7kg.
I actually had to start my diet over, because like two weeks or so after this posting, I was getting work meeting (with food) after work meeting, birthday parties with "all you can eat" type of restaurants, and stress eating in general.
My skin was so so shitty, I decided to go back to low carb and it's been way better since. Also yeah, the losing weight thing, pretty cool as well. It's been about 12 days ish since I started eating low carb, so to lose 2kg in so little time is pretty neat, especially considering I don't feel hungry at all. Also, it's cool that I don't need to keep my calorie counting so low, I am currently around 1500~1700kcal daily. Sometimes I surpass it though (usually when my bf is over), but I don't stress it too much and focus on staying lower than 60g of (net) carbs max.
I just need to chill a bit and stop myself from hopping on the scale so often.
So my next weigh-in will be next sunday, I will post here in case it moves again.
Also I ordered new running shoes (it's been a while since I actually owned a pair) and I am kinda excited to start running, or jumping rope more often.
Basically hard liquor like the other anons were saying. I make a lot of caipirinhas which just has rum, lemons, ice and a very small amount of cane sugar.
If you don't want to do liquor for whatever reason wine is probably your best call, lower in calories than beer at least.

Currently 69kg and want to be around 55kg, I gained weight from comfort eating after I lost someone close to cancer and struggled with depression, I've been working at a cafe where we get given free pastries every day and I'm about to start my new job as a librarian, and I'm going to get back into being healthy and actually going to the gym.
I feel guilty when I do comfort or even binge eat, but I can't let it be "maybe tomorrow" anymore. It's gotta be consistent!
I'm ashamed of my tummy and extra flab as before the depression I lost 2 stone and was becoming pretty healthy, I want to go back to 2017…
On a sideline I also want to glow up some, grow my nails and get my hair treated nicely, so I can feel pretty again!

Current state : 4'8 and Ive been keeping my weight since 2014 I was like 50lbs now I gained like 5 due to school + stress and it often fluctuates
My diet back then was like lots of water and like a bit of carbs since I had time to cook but now I have to buy food at our school's canteen since it's cheaper and quicker
Really sad about it and I cant go and workout at the local gym since their prices hiked up and bcus of my anxiety. Plus, I'm swamped with college stuff.
But I'd really like to hear tips and tricks to obtain body like this ;_; and your advices on a proper diet and a workout routine
Ah wait im sorry I meant I'm at 55kg or 121lbs! I got the measurements mixed up im sorry! Im overweight for my height
Gym anon here I’ve been training for 3 years now.
That girl doesn’t look like that all the time she’s cutting not even elite athletes look like that outside of stage
Here are some helpful vids you may want to check https://youtu.be/sO5QOIFxHcghttps://youtu.be/OKMO5WKPwj4https://youtu.be/77JGaZhPJZg
Thanks gym anon! I'll look into those videos
also i have some questions :
It may sound dumb I haven't gotten around asking people but should I lose my fat first before I build muscle like cardio first or do both at the same time? An old gym friend of mine says that i should do cardio first and then build muscle.
thanks in advance anon ;w;
i started the gym a month ago and my fat is just melting away. women's muscle gains plateau really early so you don't get big from muscle, just lose all the fat. best part is i can still eat the same stuff i've been eating as long as i lift the same amount. i've already lost 15lbs.
Thanks! The old gym friend of mine was an old lady who only does zumba at that time. I'll keep this in mind!>>115398
Oh shit thats so cool!! Would it be all right to ask what's your workout routine?
sure! i only work out 5 days a week, sometimes 6. m-f and sunday is on/off day.
i work out in the evening a few hours after dinner>45-60 min at a time>2 days upper body (arms and chest) >3 days lower (legs and abs) with 1 day split with added light cardio, usually the elliptical
legs are easier for women to do because our legs are stronger than mens naturally, so it tends to be easier to increase weight which will help the metabolism speed up. for legs, i'm best with the leg press right now, can do 180lbs, for arms it's lat pulls, 60lbs. make sure you do a mix of machines for different muscle groups in whatever area of the body you're working out. if you're at the gym make sure to check machines. but lemme know if you're doing it at home and i can give you a list (i can also give you a list of all the machines i use if needed)

I don't know when I'll be able to scrape up enough money for a gym membership again and I'd like to come prepared when I do ;0;

I'm 5'5" and last time I checked I was 200 lbs. I carry most of my weight in my stomach, my waist was 97cm when I checked two weeks ago.
My first mini goal is to intermittent fast (16/8 or longer) at least 6 days until June 10 and to do water fasts on June 7 and June 8. These goals aren't tied to a weight or measurement, but I'll use my fasting app to track. I'll IF on May 27, 28, 29 and then probably June 5, 6, 7. I'll check back in on May 29 next.
I used to be 95 lbs when I was anorexic and my weight crept up over the years due to grief eating, moving out, not having a strict schedule, being less active and PCOS. I need to lose weight for my health, to help with my PCOS. Due to PCOS related insulin resistance I'm more likely to develop diabetes. Insulin resistance can be reversed with a lifestyle change so that's my goal.
Also, I want to feel better about myself. My weight gain has caused me massive depression and I feel like I'm not myself anymore. I don't dress cute, I live like a slob, I don't make plans for the future, I actively avoid meeting old friends because I don't want to be seen. Losing weight will hopefully allow me to become myself again.

Hey anon, I just wanted to let you know that I'm in the same boat as you and with the same measurements/height and also used to be anachan. I was thinking of doing IF myself and your post encouraged me so much that I'll be doing it on the same dates that you listed.
I hope you make it through and feel a little bit better about yourself. In my case, my insecurity fueled by me being overweight has made me refuse many opportunities for being happy and enjoying life. The only solution is to lose weight but it's like I have to put in three times more effort than regular people.
Also the part about avoiding old friends because of weight hurts so much to read because I'm doing the same.
Sending lots of hugs.
p.s. which fasting app are you using?

Wow, 15 days already??
Time is flying by so quickly.
An update: I got my period and I usually get reeeally bloated so I don't like weighing myself when I have it, so I waited a bit longer. (
When I was feeling less bloated enough, I weighed myself, and the scale didn't move much, but them I measured myself (cause I was feeling thinner in general so I thought I'd give it a try) and my waist went down from 89cm to 85cm! Made me super happy.
Also, when my boyfriend came later at night (we didn't see eachother since last thursday), he said that I was looking way slimmer in general, but especially my calves (which I wasn't expecting at all). He even said that it was maybe the angle but then later confirmed that they were thinner indeed. That gave me even more motivation to keep going!
Now, I forgot my starting leg measurement because I am a dumbass, but I am currently at:
A(rms): 37 (fml)
Now, I work for a japanese association and through June we will be training to do dishes to sell at a big festival in July, and afterwards we will eat everything we make (the exercise dishes, I mean), starting tomorrow. So that won't be very good for my keto plan, since there are a lot of noodles and deep fried breadcrumbs envolved. But I will try my best to stay keto for the rest of the week.
As for tomorrow, I will try to fast until it's time to eat the noodles we will be making, and if I am too hungry I'll eat nuts, I guess.
Pic related, it's the noodles we'll be cooking.
I'm currently at 155 lbs. I've been kind of slacking with going to the gym and it's been really noticeable, especially with my mental health. Last week I went to the gym once and the anxiety kept me on edge almost all the time, had multiple panic attacks. I think that was also due to other circumstances unrelated, but I do think I would've handled things better if I did go to the gym twice instead because I went twice this week and it's like night and day. I'm still anxious, but not as bad. It's more of a nuisance now.
One thing, I'm not exercising as long as I used to a month ago. I go to a different gym now since I moved to a different city. The gym is a little smaller, but it has more weight machines so I'm going to start to work on building muscle. I guess that's a good thing? lol
My diet has been pretty well. I've been eating way healthier, lots of avocado with my sandwiches. Majority homemade meals, like it should be. I've been wanting to try all the food out in my new city, but I'm poor rn so that's helping me keep myself moderated. I haven't been making much fried food. Every morning I make myself two eggs with a piece of toast.
Basically my goal for now is just to continue eating healthy, work on building muscle, stay at the gym for 10 more minutes than usual.

make plantain soup and use the limes to flavor. i love a good plantain soup with a shitton of lime. i try to keep the olive oil to a minimum if possible but the soup is so filling and delicious. clean and simple. if it's thick, i would add a little more water to it.https://www.casablancacooks.com/cuban-plantain-soup/

I love making stuffed bell peppers, it's easy, delicious and low kcal.
I got the idea from this recipe but I make the stuffing more Italian by using Italian herbs and no chicken broth. Also I use veggie minced "meat"https://www.skinnytaste.com/mini-bell-pepper-loaded-turkey-nachos/
Also if you just use one big bell pepper per person it's a lot faster to make too (they just don't have mini bell peppers in our stores tbh)
And I use light mozarella instead of cheese.
I successfully did a 30ish hour fast to try to regain my control over food and hunger. I'm not sure if I want to continue it. I lost about 3ish lbs of (probably) water weight. From 129.5 to 126.5…
Idk if water fasting is even healthy at my weight but I hate restricting so much, it makes me binge. I would like to be 120-122 for a con I'm going to attend but it's probably not possible.

>>116361>2k something calories to maintain weight
Yeah right, now do the actual settings: little to no exercise.>>116351
I don't know what your goals are, but You're not moderately active if it's only walking. Regarding diet: stay true to yourself and what you like, but tweak it so it stays realistic. You're quite heavy so you need to count calories until you get used to it and are effectively losing weight.
I knew the starbucks girl's level of activity immediately because:>walking
If you do what you said alone and NEET for the rest of the day it is sedentary. If you have a job (one where you stand etc… so not a stay-at-home blogging job), do gardening, do any other normal daily activity that does not involve NEETing… and add the 6 days a week lifting routine, then lightly active of course.
This is so depressing.
I'm not Starbucks anon btw, but I am also very short and sedentary and know for a fact that I often have to hover or eat well below a maintenance of 1k calories a day in order to lose. It's a challenge and I think many people would consider it difficult.
It's why posts like >>116361
are so unintentionally frustrating.
There is no way most women can have a maintenance of 2k calories and not become obese. No way, unless they are athletes and burn half of those calories a day.
I know I start to gain at ~1.5k. But I know outsiders–and to be frank, mostly men–look at overweight women and think we're pigging out on fast food and eating over 2k to get to where we are. One time I had to shutdown one of my male friends who was bitching because he had to "limit" himself to 1.8k a day in order to lose weight at sedentary! To me that's a glut and I would become obese in no time.
I didn't want to make this a rant but it just doesn't seem fair sometimes man. Just because women are shorter doesn't mean our organs like stomachs are also small or that we don't feel the same social pressures to eat.
>>116433>two separate desserts>carbs, carbs, carbs like pasta, toast, and tortillas>dairy
A lot of meals in addition to them being very calorie dense.
I'd love to blow your mind about how if you cut out the needless desserts and carbs, you could have even more
food in protein and veggies for the same calorie amount.
Lord sakes anon, even read the comments on your article.
No, the comments are criticizing the macros of that food and are also saying that this meal scenario isn't good.
The point is that if you weren't loading up on carby, calorie dense foods and desserts with sugar you could make the meals bigger because they'd be more healthy and less calorie dense in larger portions.
You can't give a shitty meal plan like this and say checkmate. It doesn't prove you get too little food on 1.8k calories, it proves you're not good at feeding yourself.

Try eating some low-calorie vegetables for volume and nutrients. Also, stay hydrated.
still no scale but it's on it's way now so next update i'll have an actual weight. but I've been doing really good these past 2 weeks, only one or two days where I felt like I fucked up a little, but in reality i never even went over my calorie/carb limit, I'm just extremely strict with myself.
There were a few days when I couldn't exercise as much as I wanted, but I was tripping on acid so i gave myself a pass, lmao.
Even without a scale I know I've lost because my bras fit so much better already, backfat wise. I'm just so excited to see what I weigh, I never go this long without a weigh in when i'm dieting.
i hate to double post but it's been six days…
anyway i got my scale and i weighed in at 193! so i've lost at least seven pounds since I started, maybe more! super happy. also i calculated my waist to hip ratio and it's 0.73 which is really good. my hips are twelve inches wider than my waist. so i'm feeling myself a bit right now, not gonna lie.
hope all you other anons out there are feeling good about yourself too!

This is what losing 60 lbs looks like.
I've actually lost 60 lbs. i have shit skin so the rapid weight loss made my skin very crepe-y and loose. i'm trying to bulk up with weight training so the skin stretches over some muscle besides my skinny fatness.
please try to lose weight slow and steady or else you'll end up with skin problems like crepe-y skin, stretch marks, and loose skin (only if weight loss exceeds 100 lbs). but this also, like everything, depends on genes. if you have nice skin genes im sure you'll run into this problem that i got.
anon, I'm sorry that happened to you. Maybe it will tighten up again after some time?
How long did it take you to lose the weight? And did you do anything to try and prevent saggy skin?
I heard dry brushing is supposedly very good? Has anybody successfully lost weight and kept their skin tightness?
i can't really remember how long it took me to lose it but it was less than 4 months once i set my mind on weight loss goals. i limited my calories to 1200 a day and ran 5x a week for 30-60 mins. before that, i yo-yo dieted and binged so i also think that was a factor in my saggy skin as my weight was fluctuating like crazy. my skin problems are only noticeable on my arms and legs which makes me self conscious af. i just hope that it doesn't get worse because im planning to lose 20 more lbs.
unfortunately i wasn't aware i had saggy skin until i lost the weight and it was too late to prevent it. major regrets on this as i thought my youthful skin would bounce back easily. do NOT rely on this fallacy like i did especially if you're planning to lose more than 30 lbs. i really suggest hydrating very well as skin elasticity improves with water consumption. i heard rubbing oil that prevents these problems like dr. palmer's coconut oil works.
does anyone else has any ideas on preventing skin sagging?
I don’t know if this fits here but I need to post somewhere anon so here goes.
Tomorrow will be day one of me trying to take control of my shit and leave ED in the dust. I’m 5’10” ish and have always been very lanky and gangly. I currently weigh 140-145 lbs depending on the day. I either eat super healthy (generally vegan but mix in eggs and fish sometimes) as much as I like, crazy restrict, or I’m bingeing and purging. It goes in a cycle. Binge purge, restrict, get back on track, “I deserve a cheat day!” , turns into a cheat week - repeat.
I’m sick of this shit. My guts are a mess, I rely on cleanse more pills to shit half the time. I used to exercise a lot and be very active, and looked great maintaining a healthy weight while eating really well. Now I’m a lazy depressed asshole and hate what I see in the mirror when I haven’t been starving myself for a week.
I want to be healthy AND get the body I want. That is to say, a healthy strong body.
My goals; maintain a mostly vegan diet without calorie restriction focus. Break my sugar addiction. Exercise minimum 3x a week (run, dance, yoga, whatever), but be active every day - aka don’t lay on the couch for most of the day. This includes being mentally and physically active. Get my weight down to a strong and lean 135. Most of all - NO MORE BINGE AND PURGE CYCLES.
I can’t talk to anyone in my real life about this. Sorry for the insane blog post. I just am so sick of this.

Op here. Went on vacation last weekend, boyfriend proposed to me, had lots of food and fun, had drinks, felt a little guilty, stepped on the scale today: 59,8kg. Thank god! I’m in the fucking 50s for the first time since I was a teenager and I couldn’t be happier. Now it’s time to pick up a workout routine again after being injured for a long time, so I’m gonna start going to some yoga classes this week. I don’t want to end up even more skinny fat!

I'm going through therapy. I'm doing intermittent fasting, tracking what I eat daily, going to the gym at least 3-4 times a week, and cutting way down on my alcohol intake.
I could be doing more, but I hope I can at least prove to myself that I can take these baby steps to a healthier life. It'll be sad to see my boobs shrink lol but I mostly just want to have a flatter tummy and slimmer face…
good luck to everyone else in the thread!

Nope, they're real before and after pictures documenting one year of weight loss progress. Don't mind if a hand gets near the tummy or hips.>>118581
Balanced diet with lots of vegetables and fruit, cutting out most carbs, and avoiding unnecessary snacks and sweets and soda drinks will help a lot. Adding regular exercise (jogging/gym/weights) helps with burning more calories.
Slow process as usual, but the results are there to be seen.

Currently at the highest weight I‘ve ever been because I moved out from home, stress and I got an IUD.
172cm tall / about 66 - 68kg heavy (don’t own a scale) and wanna get down to AT LEAST 55kg, but I would prefer 50kg
I will start trying to cook with less oil and maybe even try to reduce carbs. My biggest problem is sweets though, so I’m trying to just not eat sugar starting tomorrow morning.
I don’t drink Soda, only water, green tea und hot chocolate so I'm just gonna scratch the hot chocolate.
When it comes to exercise, I really don’t know what to do yet. I was eyeing with the Alexis Ren workouts on YouTube but I’m not sure those are effective…
Pic is basically my goal

If you can, get into strength training and lifting weights. You can go down to 55 kg but if you get 2 kg of muscle mass in the process it will make a bigger difference. And maintaining muscle is expensive for the body so it helps in burning off more calories.
yep sparkling water is the way to go
there are a lot of tasty la croix and bubly flavors now that will get you through your soda fixation
i'm a huge soda addict myself, but have also done keto

If you need it you can lift weights at home, you can have some used dumbbells with a few plates and they work just fine.

Anons I'm so lost right now. Thought I was 155lbs but my mother's scale is brutally honest and digital and I'm nearer 160. I want to get down to 125lbs or so, o really lost track after losing a parent and I'm so frustrated. The last straw is my manager pointing out my weight, I can't take it anymore. Please throw at me all your advice for not only getting back on track but sticking to it because the year before I was doing so well before the trauma and I don't want to be heavy anymore.
I feel so pathetic. I'm 25.
oh wow. so i would actually kind of be on the opposite schedule of you. i'm a late eater and even when not dieting i usually don't have an appetite for my first meal until at least noon.
i'm trying to stick to a small first meal at 2p and then a large dinner around 8p and try not to snack. i'm doing keto too (which i've done before and had great results, but it's exhausting) but i'm hoping to reintroduce some grains after a while and keep the IF going because keto is seriously not sustainable for the average person imo.
what is it about those particular foods that makes you picky? texture? flavor?
my boyfriend thought he was super picky and hated all vegetables until i started cooking for him and he realized he'd only ever had bland, unseasoned, cafeteria versions of everything.
some salt, butter and roasting in the oven can bring out a lot of flavor and texture you might not have been familiar with before.

That sounds delicious anon, I'm gonna try that!>>119483>>119484>>119486
thank you for the support and advice everyone! I'll use Chika as my pictures from now on so my posts are easy to identify!
Have started to wean back this week, drinking a lot more water and doing alternatives. It's Saturday and I want something takeaway-like so I'm breadcrumbing some raw chicken breast with some egg I need to use up, adding vegetables and some chilli and garlic sauce. I'm also having flavored water as a treat but not relying on it /too/ much!
There are lots of healthy alternatives, I just want to grab my depression by the horns because I'm an emotional eater and fell off the healthy bicycle I had going on very hard.

Updating again! I've been working out quite hard and sticking really close to my diet plan.
Woohoo! Made it to a solid 58kg. I'm 3kg away from my first goal and it is super exciting! Wish you all the best as well and reminder to think about how good it'll feel in a couple of months if you keep to it!>>118582
Join the train! You can definitely do it. >>118773
Oh gosh that's amazing! I'm so glad things are going wonderful for you (congrats on the engagement too!!!) Have you thought about bringing your fiance to the yoga class with you?>>119569
Do you enjoy pickles? I usually substitute pickles for salty things like fries and chips. It works the best! Cod, flounder, and halibut are amazing when cooked right and are known to be the less "fishy" tasting stuff. I believe that anything can taste yummy if you get the right spices and meats.

weather: too hot
diet: getting there
motivation to fit into my summer clothes: very high
Reporting in for the week, I weighed myself and I'm 154lbs! makes me wonder if my mum's scales were broken, because two weeks ago they said like 160ish but I was on my peroid so that might be why.
I've given up squash and only let myself have flavored water as a treat and I'm getting into icing teas. I want to focus on meal prep next!
a sidenote: I've started to grow my nails and take vitamins to help! a small achievement because I used to bite them so much they bled.

Op here. Haven’t really been focusing on my diet and I’m stuck at 60,5kg again. I feel very uncomfortable in my body right now and yesterday my stomach felt so sick after having a vegan burger. I can physically feel my body telling me to stop eating bullshit. I’m glad that I haven’t been gaining a lot, maintenance is quite easy, but I only have about a month left until my fiancé and I go to New York for the first time and and I want to feel and look as good as I can. 4-5 Kilos should be a realistic goal, so I’ll stick to fasting, walking and yoga again. My diet in general is pretty healthy, I just need to quit sweets. My legs desperately need some shape lol

Update! It's been 2 weeks and I haven't binged. I almost binged tonight but as I was shoving the spoon of nutella in my mouth I spat it out before I could swallow it. I haven't weighed myself but I look noticeably thinner! Going to do a weigh in next week. Hope other 5'9 frens are doing well

Sign up to a gym and lift weights
You want a car with a strong engine which burns gas, not a lot of junk in the trunk which slows the car down
NTA but something about the swallowing would make it more likely for me
to continue and go completely overboard. When I’m not stressed or don’t feel like I’m on the verge of a binge, I can easily eat a spoonful of anything and leave it at that. But when I’m putting something in my mouth when I’m mentally in a place where I’m about to binge… I don’t know, the swallowing kind of feels like crossing a threshold in that case.

- home dumbbell or barbell set
- a good pair of running shoes
You can see gains as long as you train properly with the right exercises
Lowering your body fat percentage will help with definition

Do you want to be a fat fuck? 'cause eating around 2300 calories in one sitting is one way to become a fat fuck
Better start walking briskly tomorrow dearie
It's okay, anon. A bit late reply, but I suggest doing something that calms you down, perhaps take a warm shower with some nice smelling soap or similar that will make you feel a bit more comfortable in your body. Sip water. Have some green tea or similar.
We all fuck up. No one's perfect and just because you binged doesn't mean you've lost some imaginary battle in your mind. It's just a setback, and you can bounce back from it.
Yeah, I mean, binge eating is
unhealthy, kek. It’s not so much that I consciously give in. It’s like I’m snapping out of my mind and suddenly have no control over my actions anymore.
(I’m in therapy though and as I said, NTA. Was just saying what it’d be like for me.)

Dude binge eaters don't just overdo it once in a while and go back to eating normally. Don't be retarded.
Binging every day is a really bad thing.

Starting over again at 123lbs. Managed to drop from 128 to 110 a few months ago, but a bunch of life stuff happened and my routine got majorly disrupted.
>1000kcal, no processed sugar + 2 litres of water daily
>gym 5x weekly, mostly cardio
>walk during lunch break
I'm 5'1" and my goal weight is initially 106 but I'll go lower if I'm not satisfied.
i don't think you're supposed to do core workouts every single day, so if you're doing them in the gym already then you're probably good to just completely rest on your days off. or just pick one rest day in the middle to do them.
when i was lifting i liked to do just stretching and meditation on my rest days.
Did you mess up because you over-restricted your calorie intake or something? I’m currently trying to stick to <1000 kcal a day for the past month and it’s been alright but I’m a little nervous the other shoe might fall and I’ll binge eat at some point.
Good luck btw!(not an ana-chan thread)

>gw 120lbs (my lw from 3 years ago)
Going on holidays in Feb so I'm making that my target date. It gives me pretty much no leeway and I'd have to lose 1lb almost every week, but I've done it before in a similar amount of time. Obviously I fell straight off the wagon considering my cw, but I'm exercising a lot more these days so ideally I won't have to restrict as much. I managed to maintain this weight for over a year despite my horrendous diet and habitual overeating, hopefully it'll make a difference.
I downloaded an excel spreadsheet off reddit to track my weightloss, I added a food/exercise diary as well to automatically update my CICO and save me bothering with MFP. I'm an autist about spreadsheets so I'm really hoping it keeps me on track.

I'm spiralling atm with binge eating, I don't want to end up back at 250, I've gained so much just in a few months. I made it to 180lbs while I was mentally well and not trying a few years ago and fuck me I want back, hoping once things cool down with my living situation and stress I can focus more energy on calorie counting. I walk my dog 30-45 mins a day and strength train 3x a week, fingers crossed I can keep to 1600 calories a day without too much issue and will re-adjust (and update) once I'm back to 180.

How do I get over the fear of eating more so I can gain muscle? I won't gain any muscle eating below/at maintenance right?
I just lost 25 lbs and want to lose 5 more lbs of fat and gain muscle but kinda scared of regaining. My BMI is on the low end of normal but I wanna be like Korra.

I've struggled with disordered eating for 12 years, and I actually had my first appointment at my city's ED clinic today. Even though I know the "if I weigh more people will stop loving me" mindset is messed up, it still dominates my life.
The only things that keep me motivated to get back up to my pre-ED weight are pictures of curvy lingerie models. I want to look like that again, because my frame really doesn't suit a BMI under 22.
I hate knowing I wasted my youth obsessing over depriving my body of nutrition, but I can't fix the past. All I can do now is start treating my body with love.(not an ana-chan thread)

Lost 3 lbs since I last posted. It's not that much progress, but it's baby steps.
I cheated and ate a lot of unhealthy food so I'm glad I lost weight instead of gained, lol. But damn, the new Popeyes chicken sandwich is sooo good, I don't regret the calories at all
I've been plateauing for the past couple weeks. Hopefully I'll break through it and go under 135 this week.
I don't live near a gym anymore, so I've been doing strength training/yoga at home and going on 45-60 minute walks every morning. I use the app Pacer to track how many steps I've taken in a day. It's going to be really important for me to force myself to go on these walks, since I work from home and it's really easy for me to avoid leaving my apartment for days and days… socially anxious and mildly agoraphobic anons ww@
congrats anon! hopefully I'm you in 2 weeks. I stopped drinking a bottle of wine a night 3 days ago and it's been honestly so shit but hopefully I at least lose some weight without much other effort.
I just did a big fruit and veg shop as well as stocking up on things from the bulk store like black beans, lentils and chickpea flour. it should last me a couple weeks and reduce the temptation of buying crap when I'm at the supermarket. I'm getting a tattoo on my stomach in 4 weeks so I want to lose a couple of kgs.

Just wanted to share my favorite summer low cal snack with y’all: almost-frozen strawberries!
Microwave some frozen strawberries in a bowl for 30 seconds and you get deliciously icy, but not rock hard treats at 4 calories per strawberry.
I usually like to have a dish of 0 cal Swerve sugar replacement on the side for dipping. Soooo delicious and guilt free
I'll second the support for intermittent fasting. Never been a breakfast person anyway, so I typically eat between 1-9pm. I should cut the window back a bit earlier because I'm usually in bed before 11pm. >>121776
I think people would be happy to give advice here. You could try the advice thread too maybe, but at least here you know the audience.
Does anyone have experience with drinking apple cider vinegar? I can't seem to stick with it long term so I don't know about any benefits. I drink it in the morning, usually feel nauseous as hell for 30 min after. I know someone who swore by drinking it AFTER meals (like it cancelled out what you ate?) and I thought the whole idea was to let it go through on an empty stomach…
File: 1566121243453.jpg (119.63 KB, 465x820, apple cider vinegar.jpg)
I've been taking apple cider vinegar for a few years. Before I eat a meal I mix 15ml of vinegar with 20ml of water and drink it. The best apple cider vinegar to get is unfiltered with the mother. The fermentation sediment is supposed to contain beneficial bacteria that help with digestion issues. I also used it as a heartburn remedy when I was pregnant.
>I know someone who swore by drinking it AFTER meals (like it cancelled out what you ate?)
This is because it contains acetic acid. It stops the body from absorbing so much carbohydrate from meals.
