This is for diet and fitness related things only.

-Post your goals, your current state, like yout weight or measurements;
-What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);
-And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings.

Feel free to post charts of your progress! If you're doing daily reports, remember to sage.

Also, a reminder that we all have our ups and downs. You're human, allow yourself to fail. Just pick yourself up again and don't give up.

No ana, please.

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

My plans:
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?

No. 112889

How do you deal with the mental aspect of it?

I get these almost panic attacks. I don't "see" that I've lost weight until random moments and it's freaking me out. Like when I shaved my body for the first time in months and looked myself in the mirror, or when I tried on a cute skirt/top set that still fit great but I didn't look voluptuous at all. It's like I can't recognize myself.

I am 173,5cm and went from a skinnyfat 68kg up to 78kg then down to a fit 65kg (not my lowest adult weight ever) in maybe a year and a half. I don't feel like it should be this bad.

That being said, I think I am becoming more confident and positive, even tho I don't feel different. People(mostly ladies) have started to approach me at the gym.

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.

I'm starting out at 130 lbs at 5'5"/ 59kg and 165cm.
I used to weigh 115 and want to get to that weight again, but it's seemingly only getting harder to lose weight. I'm trying to stay below 1300 kcal a day right now and mostly it's working but I like alcohol too much. I also take frequent walks and bike for an hour once or twice a week.

Thing is, I have a slow metabolism. Not the weak excuse kind, but the "I only poop little pellets once a week and have done so all my life, have very low energy and crave sugar" kind. Pretty demotivating.

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

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.

Exercise:
I'm 5'8" at 160 lbs. Goal weight is whatever. I lost about 10 lbs since 2 months ago, so that's been helpful.
I'm mostly just exercising to help regulate my mental health. I find my days are better overall dealing with my general anxiety disorder after a workout session.
I just want to be accountable to continue going to the gym. I don't want to stop working out because I feel too anxious or I use the weather as an excuse.

Diet:
I have PCOS so eating the regular amount of food someone would, I gain weight. I'm also sensitive to sugar and get heartburn fairly easily. I want to find filling recipes to make that aren't oily, sugary, or would upset my stomach (because that also affects my mental health as well).

Progress:
Currently, I've been to the gym 3 times this week. I worked out for about 40 or so minutes each day. Today I definitely exercised for 50.
What I ate, I had a frozen dinner one time this week. I've been trying to eat more healthier foods like tuna and avocado sandwiches. I had Mediterranean take out as well and asked for no oil. I made Japanese curry. Ate half a chicken sandwich from Hardee's. I also bought myself an air fryer so I've been using that for some of my breaded foods.

If my waist and clothing size are vastly larger than others of my weight/height does it mean I’m just apple shaped or high body fat percentage, or is it something to be worried about?

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)
Good luck!

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 kcal. Oof.

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.

No. 113092

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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

I’ve gained about 5-10 pounds since I started college and seeing the weight I’ve put on has really messed with my self esteem and the way I eat. Last summer I lost 10 pounds in a month (123 to 113) from eating at a large caloric deficit and daily cardio, and although my body looked the nicest it’s ever looked, my hair was thinning and I was always low on energy. I’ve been lazy and just assumed that I’d be able to maintain my weight through counting calories but that led me into a binge-purge cycle a couple weeks ago that I’m trying to get out of. Starting today I’m going to start doing cardio and eating 1300 calories (~200 deficit) and eventually raise exercise as I ease into this until I reach my goal weight (110 pounds at 5’3”). I find that I eat healthier and have less cravings when I exercise (don’t wanna let all my progress go to waste) but I’m terrible at committing to going to the gym, so I’m going to try going every other day to burn 200-400 calories and spend my off days walking at least 5 miles (or going to the gym if I feel like it). I also want to work on getting a smaller waist and defining my arms. Wish me luck!

No. 113355

I've had an issue with binge eating for as long as I can remember. That plus a prolonged period of self-hatred put me in a really terrible place health-wise. I've been making efforts to repair my relationship with food and break my reward/punishment patterns with my diet and exercise routines. For example: going for a run because it feels good, not to punish myself for something I ate. It's been a long and difficult journey, but I finally feel like I can make progress that lasts.

Alright, enough of the sappy stuff! Here are my goals:
Starting weight: ~200lbs (not exactly sure, my scale is packed away for the next couple of weeks)
First goal: get down to 180lbs
Second goal: 160 lbs
Third goal: 135 lbs

Plan:
IF - easing into it, I don't want to get into a binge pattern post-fast
Running in the morning, hot yoga 3x per week at least
More plant-based meals, I notice I feel very good for hours after eating one
Focus on how foods and exercise make me feel
Track binge-free days (a 30+ day streak without binging looks nice and is motivating!)

I'd like to track every 10 days, I think. Good luck, everyone!

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.

Building muscle as a female is hard as fuck. I doubt they'd become super muscular by accident. Also, a calorie surplus is also necessary to build muscle if you're underweight. Something like 250kcal above maintenance, and a focus on protein.

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'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'm the same age and I have also fluctuated between 150 and 158. For the past month I've been dieting and going to the gym nearly every day but I can never seem to get past 150, which is extremely frustrating seeing as I've been eating clean. I worry we're just at an age where weight loss is more difficult.

I’ve done keto twice now and it’s honestly such a good tool to examine and become conscious of your sugar intake. Unfortunately after I started eating carbs again I gained 50% of what I lost back and it ruined stuff like yogurt and peanut butter for me because I was eating a lot of the same things all the time. It’s definitely cool to see the weight fall off though.

I have had some slow and steady progress with calorie counting (MFP, 1500 kcal/day) although I overindulged a little over the easter weekend.

I was thinking about food today and it had me wondering if any of you guys have an achilles heel food/snack that you have chosen to cut from your diet completely?

For me it is cheese doodles. Glorious, crunchy, delicious orange crescents. So delicious but so densely packed with calories. In the past I could snack on them non stop until the bag was empty. I simply can't keep any discipline and portion control with them so I decided they had to go.

While I do miss one of my most favorite snacks and crave them really bad at times I am also proud of myself for having the self control to not buy them anymore. It must be almost a year now since the last time I bought some.

I hope everyone else is doing well with their diet!

Yeah I used to eat a lot of macaroni and cheese and also chips with hummus but now I never eat them anymore because I'm an adult now and don't have growing teenager metabolism. When I overindulge now it's on smaller snacks or giving myself second servings or too large portions of healthy meals. If I still ate my old favorites I would probably be 30lbs heavier by now.

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!

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.

After years of sticking to sub-1200kcal every time I had to lose weight, since February I've been eating around 1300-1450 and it's so much better. Progress is slow as fuck but at least I feel like I can maintain this for the rest of my life and I haven't binged once. I'm also not dealing with cravings since most of the time I can fit in some cookies or chocolate.
Not feeling obsessed about the numbers anymore, it would totally consume my life before.
I really recommend losing on a slower pace for people who have a tendency to get obsessive or go overboard.

Started at 66.7kg, now 64.9kg.
Goal is somewhere around 58kg.
Height: 158cm
I'm not really exercising consistently. I find any kind of exercise (exception is walking) makes me much hungrier, I find it easier to stick to a deficit when I'm sedentary… But I still do HIIT sometimes, makes me feel good afterwards.

How do you fill the rest of your calories per day but fit a cookie or unhealthy thing in? I want to do and achieve the same!

No. 113862

>>113856
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 :)

with intermittent fasting, do you have to track calories and does it only work because you end up eating less? I've just started doing the 16/8 method but I do not want to track calories as every time I do it sends me into a spin of disordered thoughts.

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.

The lowest weight I've been was 160lbs, been pretty overweight my whole life because of binge eating and crash dieting and being stuck in that cycle. Thanks to that I have somewhat of an apron belly at 20 years old (no children either) and stretch marks.
Trying to get my eating in order without expecting super fast weight loss, while also toning up a little, so I'm starting swimming next week and I plan to start with 3 60 minute sessions a week and then maybe go up to 5. Eating around 1300-1400 calories a day, trying to get back into drinking plenty of water and eating fruit & veg and focus on protein and carbs (in the right amounts). Also plan on going to therapy soon so I can work through my binge eating.

Right now I’m about 120lb, 36/27/38. I just want to tone up and possibly slim my outer thighs a bit. I also want more energy.

>What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);

Pilates, walks now that the weather is nice, keep up my general 16/8 IF but add more protein to my diet.

Weekly measurements, probably. I don’t have a scale currently. I’ll know the energy results when I feel them.

I feel like size-wise I’m fine. I’m probably fatty-chan size in many people’s eyes but this is close to what’s sustainable and I look good in my clothes. I don’t need to stress and waste all my time trying to get a 24” waist or whatever.

- I'm currently 175lbs and 5'3" (pls no bully). I'm job searching and I'd like to lose weight and buy new office clothes. I'd like to start off by losing 20lbs and depending on how much time I have left before I start the job, more. I know I'm going to struggle with energy levels once I start working so I want to get this done and over with now. I also want to look cute for my bf again.
- I'm vegan and I think I rely to much on carbs so I'm cutting out white grains (except for oats because they're the only thing I eat for breakfast) and alcohol. I record my food using MFP to stay under my carbs/calories goal (does 50g of carbs and 1,200 calories sound reasonable?). I have a pedometer and I'm aiming for 10k steps a day (it also alerts me to move when I've been sitting down for too long!). I'd love to take up something more intense but it might be easier after I lose the initial 20lbs. I struggle most with food when I'm around my bf.
- Will weigh myself first thing tomorrow morning and every morning after that. Will possibly post some weight loss charts in the future.

I'd be really interested in any other apps/tools people use and maybe some exercises that are suitable. Or any advice whatsoever because I've been failing to lose weight for years because I binge eat and it's just been a vicious cycle that I want to break out of.

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.

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 have a nasty past with EDs so I try to not go too low or pressure myself to it because I always fuck up for a few months and then end up gaining it all back through reactive bingeing because I was eating 500-900kcal before.

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!

It took me around 2 weeks to get back on track but now it’s pretty easy and my appetite and hunger is very minimal. I crave salads all the time! It’s so nice to see how my relationship with food changed since January and how much better I feel inside my skin. My legs are still kinda flabby but my upper body is very lean with visible abs and a small waist. Hopefully my body will get more proportional with the last 3-5kg but I guess that the leg fat will be the last to go. How are my siblings doing?

I hope this is the right thread for this, but what are some panties that won't ride up while running? I've been wearing the Under Armor pure stretch hipsters, but they give me a wedgie after like 10 seconds. It's fine with me if there are panty lines as long as there's no chafing or swamp crotch.

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.

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.

so I did IF by itself for a week without any result then started calorie tracking as well. definitely think starting with IF has made it easier to reduce calories. I haven't gone over 1500 in 2 weeks and I've lost a kilo without slipping into disordered patterns. this is the first time I've dieted since I went vegan and I think that is helping prevent restriction a lot. I'm not guilty about the food that I eat, just excited to find ways to get my protein and veg and stay satisfied

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…

Anon, if you had an ED in the past, you should be very cautious. I'd actually wouldn't try to lose weight. If you still want to shed a few pounds, you should check that with a doctor and a dietician, so they can help you along the way and make sure you're okay and healthy.

I had diagnosed anorexia for years then EDNOS ranging from 11 to 17 years old. I'm currently losing weight healthily since February and without obsession even though I count calories. If you see yourself falling off the wagon and restricting too much, eat at maintenance for a week. Similarly, if you feel yourself getting too obsessed over numbers, take a break for a day or two and don't log anything you eat. It's like those little actions allow your mind to "restart", though I haven't dealed with that now because I squeeze in everything I like and don't feel deprived. I'd advise against anything restrictive like keto or IF and to lose at a moderate rate per week, 1 lb AT MAXIMUM. No more. That's what's working for me at least.

I'm gonna try fasting until I get home, so about 17hrs everyday. I really need help controlling my hunger. I feel like I just eat for fun/emotional reasons and it's seriously prohibiting my weight loss. Plus, it saves me money to not buy lunch. Hopefully I can get down to 120 lbs before July.

I'm wanting to lose about 50 lbs, and I know it will take alot of willpower but I'm ready to struggle through!
I was trying on clothes I thought were pretty a couple days ago and I looked awful in all of them. I felt really down about it, and it made me evaluate how I actually want to look. It's gotten to the point were I'm constantly saying to myself 'I'll do that, once I slim down' or 'I can only buy that once I drop a couple stone'. But I'm not doing anything to drop the weight so it's just self sabotage. That all stops today!
I want an utter glow up. I'm going to cut back my calories (1500 cal?) and gradually lose the weight over time. I'm kinda impatient but I'll just have to be strict with myself to keep at it. Exercise is kinda my downfall, but I work as a waitress and am on my feet all day so I kinda count that as part. Also will do the regular drink more water, sleep earlier, eat more fruits/vegies stuff for better health! Wish me luck!

NTA but gym friend gave you the complete wrong advice. Look up bulking. Starting with fat is the easiest way to build muscle and cycles of bulking/cutting is THE way that dedicated lifters gain large amounts of muscle. So no do not lose your fat before you start gaining muscle, just start lifting now.

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.

>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)

You have to not have the food available in the house at all so when you go to binge there's no junk food there or whatever food it is you binge on in the quantity that it usually is and have only healthy food. If you are used to ordering fast food delivered delete the apps and numbers you use to do it. Only grocery shop when you've just eaten so you don't give in and buy too much/junk food. You're trying to make it practically harder for yourself to binge.

Try a smaller deficit. The last time I had problems with binge eating was because I was restricting too hard and my body eventually rebels. Try to include foods you like so you don't feel deprived. Of course I don't know your situation but that's what helped me.

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.

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:

W: 85
L: 67
A(rms): 37 (fml)
Weight: 88.5

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 have started using the maintenance calories of my current weight as my "goal" for the day even if I plan to eat below that. It's must easier to visualize at the end of the end of the week when Lose it displays the weekly budget and the deficit. It's more of a psychological effect because I feel super bad when I set my goal to 1200 and I eat 1220, it just feels wrong to go overboard even by a little.
Also helpful to make us see that one single day doesn't matter that much and isn't enough to ruin a whole week of progress. Just a little tip from someone who battled an ED.

Update!
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.

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.

nta but you sound kind of stupid. lifting isn't light activity, but you didn't even ask her how much she is lifting? anything less than 10lbs is cardio, but you didn't ask her to specify. same with walking, there is a huge difference in activity between slowly walking 1 mile a day over the course of 20 minutes, and walking 5 miles a day. gtfo of the thread and stop acting like you know anything.

samefag, but you sound a little ignorant too. you need to take height into consideration. i am 175cm and was recommended no less than 1700 calories. also men lose weight much easier by eating less, it's just how the body works, women are designed by nature to store more fat.

Couldn't agree more. I'm 5'2 with a slow metabolism and to maintain my weight I have to eat around 1k calories. To lose weight I have to go down to around 900 and it's very slow going. When I read other people spouting on about eating such large amounts to lose weight I have to think that they don't have any experience and are basically memed into believing whatever they read online. Men especially are guilty of this; I don't know how many times a man has told me to just cut soda out of my diet to lose weight. I haven't touched a soda in years. It's discouraging to say the least.

I've always wished I was short but I like eating and having to eat 1k just to maintain sounds like shit. So thanks, I guess. Also you should probably pick up some kind of cardio. Running a 5k a day or something like that will allow you to eat more.

Well if they're sedentary it can be pretty low. Sedentary TDEE for my goal weight is around 1450-1500. And it's a normal weight (53kg), not anorexic shit. The only exercise I do is walking because anything else ramps up my appetite and it's much harder to eat in moderation. I guess it just feels like a slow metabolism compared to other people but if you're very active you can maybe eat +2000kcal daily…

Starbucks anon again, I didn't mean to cause any controversy or argument in the thread, the reason I guessed moderately active was my job was 37 hours a week and because we were understaffed there was a lot of running up and down stairs, a lot of this with carrying huge crates of milk so lots of litres, lots of nine and ten hour shifts, but if my activity level is still only lightly active then I've miscalculated.

I want to get back to gym but I agree I'm ashamed that I became heavy so I don't know which of those calorie intakes posted is better, how many calories should I be eating a day to steadily lose the gained weight?

I just want to be back to when I was under 10st and in shape!

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.

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.

Maybe try a small fast, anon? Like 24 hrs or so? It might be water weight, especially if you've been eating a ton of carbs. I eat high carb and can drop like 3-5 lbs of water weight in a day.

Starting weight: 180ish pounds (didn’t have a scale, this is a rough estimate)
Current weight: 177
Goal: 140
Height: 5’5

Started intermittent fasting in May (16:8) with no added sugar, healthy meal choices (except for one binge day on my bday) and exercising anywhere between 2-4 times a week. I cannot believe I have only a 3 pound difference. The last 2 weeks I have fluctuated between 176-178lbs. I do yoga, cardio and ab exercises. My boyfriend is shedding pounds and is already looking great, but I feel stuck and discouraged because I’m not seeing a weight difference. The bf is trying to convince me it’s muscle gain that is keeping my weight steady, but I really can’t say for sure.

I can see my arms are a bit thinner, and my belly fat isn’t that soft anymore, but other than that I do not see a change. It’s super frustrating because looking at my bf and other people’s results after a month of IF, I’m starting to feel super discouraged. Anons, what am I doing wrong? Anything else I should be adjusting?

as much as you can use those calculators, there are so many other factors that make your tdee higher and lower on some days than others. honestly i would go against calorie counting and avoid refined carbs (sugars included) as much as possible and maybe treat urself once every week or two, sometimes more frequently with special events. exercise is important too. it's sustainable and it's how i got to my gw as a short person. i tried 1200isplenty and i went nuts and binged once a week

Summer is a shitty season to me. I tend to swell a whole lot just being outside, I gain one to two sizes more my standard size. How can I change that?
I drink a lot (more than 2l at day or more) and eat veggies (but little fruit, I don't like it much) and regularly go out and walk. How can I change that? It may be some error in my diet? Am I drinking too much water? Too little?

Yeah those always tell us to eat way more than we actually can. It's getting to the point that I'm beginning to think it's some scrot posting this and going on about the tdeecalculator because only someone who can naturally eat more would think it's an acceptable amount of calories.

I think the anons pointing out that tall people and men can usually eat as much as these things say. I'm 170cm tall and I eat a lot more calories than someone who is say 160cm. Caloric intake is based on averages, so it makes sense. I'd rather see a nutritionist to get my full body makeup before I start listening to shitty online calculators either way.

No. 116711

>>116679
Fitbits generally track calorie burn with a 20% margin of error from studies I've seen. I have a charge 2 and it's generally pretty accurate in terms of using the measurement for weight loss/maintenance cals. Much more accurate than the calories you get from treadmill counters, etc as fitbits track your avg heart rate all the time.

updating
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!
