Blogpost time to get the thread going>-Post your goals, your current state, like yout weight or measurements;
Currently about 60kg at 172cm, started in July at ~66kg. GW is 55 at the bare minimum, it's almost underweight but I've been that weight before and still had fat legs so unfortunately I'm gonna have to reevaluate when I reach it and possibly lose more. >-What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);
Eating about 1200-1300 cal on average, I try to eat under 1200 on weekdays so I can go out for bigger meals on the weekend. No special diet except trying to cut down on sugar and bread. Doing sport 1-3 times a week and going for hr long walks on other days, and I plan on joining a gym in the next few months, I just wanna make sure I'm 100% committed and not wasting my money.>-And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings.
Weighing every day for consistency in my data, measuring when I feel skinny/try on clothes.
It's going suspiciously well so far, my hunger levels are manageable, had no real binges or serious cravings throwing me off track. But I'm only cautiously optimistic, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop and to start binging and eating crap because that's what happened with past attempts. But I think there are some key differences this time>found some really good low cal foods that work for me, also strawberries are really cheap atm so I'm living on them and yoghurt>weighing every day >focusing on overall average intake rather than trying to get 1200 exactly every single day>eating at set times so I never get too hungry and never have to make a choice whether to snack or not
My biggest struggle is accurately calorie counting, it's almost impossible at restaurants and when other people make me food. I always worry that I'm eating more than I realize and try to round all my calorie counts up to compensate.

-Post your goals, your current state, like yout weight or measurements; I'm currently hovering around 145-148 but I'm pretty short (5 ft) so it's really bad. I put weight on incredibly quickly. My goal is 95 lbs but my REASONABLE goal for now is 120.
-What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?); I'm eating better because I had a hard time mentally during Corona and put on around 25 lbs from depression and overeating. I'm eating smaller portions and doing intermittent fasting while going for runs/walks. I don't have a lot of time to go to a gym right now but when I do I want to do a lot of core excercises!
-And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings. I weigh myself every morning. I want to lose weight but I have very bad mental issues so I can't make it my whole life or else I'll spiral out of control but I am eating much better and drinking more water instead of alcohol.
Is this a good general diet (vegetarian and dairy free) for maintaining average muscle mass and low weight?
Breakfast: Banana, large cup of coffee with oat milk
Morning snack: 2 hard boiled eggs
Lunch: Noodles with chopped and pan fried veg (broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, chillis, pepper, eggplant)
Dinner: Small portion of white rice with black/kidney beans, chopped onion and tomatoes.
For something sweet or other snacks: strawberries, coconut based yogurt, almonds, rice cakes
I’m terrible with exercise but very good at maintaining a diet, my biggest concern is lack of protein. Any thoughts?

How do I achieve this kind of physicque? She's been my goals ever since I saw that GIF of her on tumblr back then…Ive been doing some 15 minute cardio and then 20 to 25 minutes worth of strength training(or dumbbells) that I see on YT.

>Post your goals, your current state, like your weight or measurements;
Currently I'm 5'2 and weigh 134lbs. I'v already lost about 10lbs during quarantine, but recently fell off the wagon when I realized I had nowhere to show off my weight loss. I'm within healthy range and I'm down to 19.2% body fat. But still that means I have around 30lbs of fat and no thanks. Ideally, I'd like to be around 1150-120 because I know once I'll put on a few more lbs of muscle mass before I start to loose weight. Ideally I'd have 10lbs or less of bodyfat.
>What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);
I use FITINDEX as well as their smart scale but have been super lax about using it lately. I need back to daily morning weigh ins to hold myself accountable. I need to cut out some junk foods I've been eating and be more strict with 16:8 intermittent fasting. I also need to get back to running and weight lifting. I need to be doing cardio 6 days a week at least and weight lifting 3 days.
>And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measuring.
Morning weigh ins every day, starting a tracking journal. I also want to put some money in a cute dress fund for when I get down under 125.
thanks for making this thread anon, made me realize I know exactly what I have to do now I just have to do it.

There are people whose face just remains fat, no matter what. Pic related is Sophia Thiel. Killer body, moonface. (No hate tho, I think she's gorgeous, but those hamster cheeks and rock hard abs crack me up all the time)
What's the point of posting non-natty figures?
Of course anyone, no matter the age or sex, can go from fat to jacked with steroids or anabolic chems.
sometimes moonface is a sign of anavar.
Misscarriejune gets shit for it all the time
Actually, im going to go ahead after some googling of sophia and say im pretty sure it is anavar for her too.
Lift HEAVY. Shes a powerlifter.
take anons advice. read the /fit/ sticky, and start doing Strong lifts 5x5 or Starting strenth. Focus on more weight and less reps.
Luckily you dont have to focus on your diet that much as people wanting to be skinny fitspo/have abs
You go into ketosis daily when intermittent fasting as well. The metabolic benefits are better if you're fasting earlier in the day too (skipping dinner rather than breakfast). There's no right or wrong diet with IF.
I also cut out gluten (because of intolerance) which makes staying low carb pretty easy, and the carbs I do get are high quality whole food carbs. Honestly if you're really craving fruit, go for it. Make sure to reintroduce them slowly.
Has anyone here successfully fixed the bad habit of emotional eating/eating as a coping mechanism for stress? I need to develop better self control and not depend on food like this. Wondering what you guys do that helps instead.>>154778
I saw her post that she eats low carb, eats filling food like eggs, and drinks black coffee as an appetite suppressant.>>154799
My starting weight/height before I started exercising at all was similar to you (but completely skinnyfat). In about 6 months I am down to 135 lbs which isn't much progress since my diet is still pretty poor but have had a lot of body recomp/muscle building. Which /fit/ plan do you use? And congrats on your initial progress since 2018, you sound a lot healthier even if Corona threw things off track a little.
I would advise you to first ask yourself why you seemingly can't stop eating. Seriously analyze your mental processes and emotions pertaining to food/eating. Are you eating because you are genuinely hungry and never feel full? Eating out of boredom? Eating to cope with emotional problems? Out of fear of going hungry?
Treatments for this sort of thing are really varied and knowing what's causing you to overeat can be beneficial in finding something that works for your specific case.
I believe in you anon!
I'm doing this exercise after my daily workout to work more on my thighs and after three weeks I like the results so far.
She has an entire plan for slim thighs, maybe it's something for you.https://www.chloeting.com/program/2020/slim-thigh-challenge.html
but as >>154925
said, you need to work your whole body in order to see results. Wish you good luck!
Weight loss is about what you eat, not how you work out. Working out helps I guess but since you can't target weight loss, you won't really be doing much but wasting time toning your muscles under fat.
If you want to tone, yes do the exercises that those anons have provided. But if you want to shrink in size, I recommend doing Whole30 diet. Or at least something REALLY close to it. Or another diet to shock your system and cause you to rapidly lose weight in a very short amount of time.
If you really wanna do whole30 without needing to set up, buy these staple ingredients:
- coconut milk
- chicken, beef, pork (NONE of them should ever have any add-ins. Get them straight from the meat locker, do not get "special seasoning" meat)
Eat with these foods (if you wanna lose faster, scrap the potatoes), and you'll basically lose weight faster than CICO (water weight comes off quickly).
I'll reiterate: weight loss is about diet, not exercise. Abs are made in the kitchen.
I can't thank you enough anons, you've made me feel like maybe this isn't such an impossible task after all. The fact that the Chloe Ting workout can yield results after 3 weeks is extremely encouraging.
Regarding the need to target my entire body to see results: would it be okay to focus on lower body exercises and just do some simple arm workouts (eg. bicep curls) to tone my upper arms? Obviously in addition to a sensible diet that burns fat so the muscle can show.
General low carb to find out if there's a food intolerance would probably work well with less restrictions though. It requires a lot of willpower to stay at 20 and below carbs unless you're creative as fuck or don't care about what you're eating if it gets samesy.
I hate that oat milk is so carb heavy. I guess 12g of net carbs isn't the worst for 8 oz, especially if you halve it out and dilute it.
You don't necessarily need coconut milk unless you plan on making coconut curries or need a thick cream-like product (I used coconut cream to make coconut banana smoothies). Almond milk works, cashew milk too. UNSWEETENED. Just nothing with oats or dairy. No wheat, no grain, nothing. Stay away from that shit for 30 days.
I'm not the one that recommended you keto. I would never do keto, it fucking sucks not being able to eat fruit or potatoes (for the love of god potatos). When I did Whole30, I ate potatoes almost every day and lost weight. You don't HAVE to eat potatos though and you'll shed weight faster.
If you think any of that sounds hard… Just know that I'm a lard ass who ordered out 7 days a week for lunch AND dinner and then I went to making homemade dinners and eating leftovers for lunch. No sugar, no dairy, no grains. It's only 30 days too. With that being said, even if you don't want to do exactly whole30, just try and keep a simple diet. Don't order out, make all of your meats from scratch and season yourself (do not use pre-mixed seasoning like lawrys or ms. dash).
I can list all the recipes I used and everything I did if anyone needs more info for whole30.
Congrats, anon. People never realize just how many calories are in alcohol. I would drink a six pack and that's 600 calories right there. Plus vodka… So many calories.
Congratulations. But have a white claw once in a while.

Currently 57kg and 167cm, I started this year as 75kg. I aim for about 40-45kg>-What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);
I fast quite a bit, I try and keep my calorie intake under 1.2k for weight loss and then I'll adjust it to be a bit higher when I reach my goal to maintain it.
I also exercise, keep it at something pretty basic like cardio. pro tip about fasting btw, don't get carried away. I once didn't eat for a whole week because of the fact I was scared of gaining the weight I lost while fasting.>-And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings.
I had an unhealthy habit of beating myself up when I went over my limit, but now I just tell myself to do better and move on.
I don't recommend fasting in all honesty, it does give good results but you feel like pure shit afterwards. Having to ease into eating full meals or just little things after not eating for 18-72 hours is nauseating.

Alright here's my plan.
Right now I'm 185lbs. My goal is to be in the 130s.
For diet I'm not going to track calories but I'm going to focus on fixing my eating habits. Right now I eat like an animal and if I want to be thin and stay thin then I will need to change how I eat. I actually love healthy food but since moving in with my in-laws I've been eating fast and easy food (I don't wanna be in the kitchen with them kek), so I'm going to try to meal prep more plant based meals so I don't eat like ass. For eating habits, I'm going to focus on eating slower, chewing way more, only eating when I feel my stomach growling, and leaving my food when I feel satisfied. I'm also going to stop eating at work and avoid eating food other people make.
For exercise, I'm going to bike 30 minutes a night before bed. I'm also going to go to the gym 3 times a week on top of that, honestly just to incline walk because I love it.
I started a few weeks ago but I was doing more exercise and it was super overwhelming and hard to stick to. I hope I can stick to this, it should be easy as long as I stay focused.
>>155415> i didn't expect this to gain so much traction
I mean you said your country demands/expects you to be severely underweight. That's bizarre so of course that's going to pique our interest and curiousity.
I hope you're safe and healthy wherever you are. Hopefully it's some sort of misunderstanding.

How to I curve me nighttime appetite? On most days I work from about noon to later in the evening, usually getting back at around 9-10 PM. I have a lunch break in the middle of the day, but by the time I get home I am super hungry from standing/walking/lifting things/just generally being on my feet all day. That usually means I get around to eating dinner at around 11 pm. I know its not good to be eating that late and I want to break the habit of eating so much before bed. I feel like it's already contributed to some extra weight on me but I don't know what else to do besides skipping dinner entirely.
What sucks even more is that the gym I would go to after work closes earlier now due to Covid hours so I cant go like I usually would after work.
Isn't "eating at certain times bad" a meme? So long as you're watching CICO and getting the right nutrients.
I eat once a day (not bc of OMAD science, I just love to consume many calories at once), and if it's late at night the only difference I've noticed is morning bloat. Bodies are different though so who knows.

Can I trust these estimations? When I walk ten thousand steps myfitnesspal only says I burnt 43 cals but this chart says it would be much more
It's a meme if it's just diet advice based on hearsay, like drinking 8 glasses of water a day.
Intermittent fasting/ time-restricted eating is legit science with benefits beyond being a weight-loss diet, although you can use it like that.

98 lbs. I looked hot at that weight.>plan
what I'm doing now. lifting and cardio, I just need to drop fat.>speed
By Christmas. So… 5 lbs a month.
Also does hot weather seem to help anyone else drop weight? I don't change anything but spending some time in a scorching country makes me drop weight fast.
anon r u ok?
98 is pretty low for someone 5'5" and certainly too low to look like that pic
What fat do you have at 5'5 108 pounds? I'm shorter than you and was 110 pounds after wisdom teeth surgery and looked hella skelly. If you want to start lifting and gaining muscle to tone you will put on weight in the form of muscle.
Stop worrying about numbers and just be the weight you feel your best at.
Too chubby, I must store weight differently. I know it sounds low.
I already lift.
The meals I have every day are >oatmeal (135 cal sachet) with almond milk>a fruit salad of whatever's in season (lately orange, kiwi, melon)>100g greek (80 cal) or low fat yoghurt (40 cal) with berries>2x coffee with sweetner and either almond or soy milk
Then I have a roster of options for lunch/dinner. A bunch are microwaveable packaged foods because I take them to work for convenience>scrambled eggs (2-3 eggs with a splash of milk)>ham (30 cal) or tuna (100-150 cal) on sandwich thins (100 cal)>soup (200 cal)>migoreng cup noodles (found a GF version for only 170 cal)>mac n cheese (280 cal)>various frozen meals (250-350 cal)
And I eat a lot of my mum's cooking. She's really into nutrition but also doesn't have to count calories so it's def healthy but a total gamble calorie-wise (and I'm not gonna make her count for me). Often we have>veggie curry, usually with some variety of potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, sometimes lentils or tofu>veggies with hokkien noodles >zucchini or pumpkin soup>frittatas>usually cooks a tonne of sweet potato which I eat on it's own with garlic aioli
I can't be bothered counting calories for fruits, condiments, milk etc and can't count food I'm made so I need to keep my meal sizes pretty small to be safe.

Anons, how do you pick up your motivation when it's gone? I feel disgusting and fat even though I'm technically still the same weight. Is it possible for fat to distribute this weirdly?
I'm 5'5 and approx. 123lb. Might not sound too bad, but most of my fat literally just goes straight to my thighs, which looks horrible on a short person like me.

I don't know how to measure my progress, and I kinda want to look like the girl in the photo, I've always wanted a body similar to that, or something slightly chubbier, I hate looking obese in my clothes.

I'm so grateful I have a fast metabolism. Im pretty damn lazy so if I didn't have a fast metabolism Id be chunky. I still want to be toned so I'm going to try to consistently do yoga+body weight excersize. I'll find a weekly routine to target all of my muscles but mainly my abs. I've been doing some yoga and its pretty relaxing and enjoyable.
Whats your weekly routine anons?
Monday, wednesday and friday: Legs and butt
Tuesday, thursday and saturday: Abs and arms
My routines are 30 mins or 1 hour of cardio (if I went for a walk) and 40/50 mins of functional training, most of the exercises are based from pilates and classical dancing, then I stretch. Sundays I take off
it is a myth, some people just feel the need to eat less than others or maybe they move around more in their day to day lives. Because they've eaten to or maybe slightly past the point of satiation (for them, which is lower than average) they feel like they've eaten a lot even if they haven't and so think they must have a fast metabolism. Or because bigger people who believe in fast/slow metabolisms and genetics and such have told them that.
I'll usually eat a shit ton of food early on or late in the day but then my adhd brain will get distracted by something and I don't think about eating for hours so it evens out and I don't gain weight. Like op I kinda need to tone up but I'll never have the dedication needed to get abs though lol

Goal weight: 50-55kg
Current weight: 59kg, 167cm
I started at 79kg last november and lost 20kg in a year with calorie counting. I am still unhappy with my figure cause i have pretty unfortunate fat distribution and very little muscle.
I am planning on working out but it's hard to start since i have no discipline in the lockdown. I try to drink a lot of water every day and completely cut out soda exept diet coke as an occasional treat.
I weigh myself every week and use the app LoseIt. Losing weight has been tricky cause i'm autistic about vegetables but calorie counting helps a lot with portion control.
Congrats, that's awesome!
Since a tracking app helped you discipline your diet, maybe a fitness app can help you discipline yourself for working out? Give them a try, at least. Good luck with getting in shape!
have you tried the workouts on youtube? I work out with them almost every day and I am quite satisfied with the results. I recommend lilly sabri. plus intermediate fasting.
love yourself girl, you're doing great so far!

Is there anything in particular about vegetables? I know the texture & smell can be a big issue for people.
Have you tried a greens/reds powder? You can get some that are berry or citrus tasting so they might work better for you while boosting your nutritional status
