What is your current weight and goal weight op?

what are you planning to do to loose?

I'm 5'7 ft and 120 lbs, I want to get down to 110 lbs.
I'm gonna start yoga in a few week and I going to start swimming again. (didn't had the time this summer because work).

I'm vegetarian, and I plan on cutting every dairy product as well.

I never been a fatty, hope I never will (honestly I would want to kill myself, shallow I know) love being slim, but I'm a pear and I need to be almost underweight if I wish to have small legs.

No. 161529

I'm 5'5" and around 130 (I think, haven't weighed myself in months - I go by how my clothes fit) and trying to lose some podge from a couple of holidays (one in March, so it's taking me a while). I have no goal weight in mind, just areas of fat I want to get rid of.

I'm a typical pear shape, but my shoulders and arms have gotten bigger in recent months through work. I do a pretty physical job which has built a lot of muscle all over, but particularly my arms and shoulders. Also, my core is now quite built up as well, so I'll never have the slim curvy shape I had 10 years ago (and stupidly hid under baggy clothes) but I can at least aim for a flatter stomach, then you might be able to see the abs I know are under there!

Because I work physically hard I need to take in a fair amount to stop me being a hangry bitch, but I've been trying to cut back on chocolate and junk, so not eating it every day or at least only having 1/3 of what I used to. I've cut down the butter in sandwiches and upped the fruit/salad/veg intake to fill me up so I don't cave in to quick junky snacks. It's not happening fast because I just can't restrict to 1200 or 1500 on work days, but it is happening. I've gained about an inch and a half of room on my waistband and my thighs don't rub together so much. There'll never be a gap there, my legs are muscly and I like em that way.

I hate exercise although swimming is just about bearable. If I go for a walk I end up at the pub! I might start lifting though, as I'm trying to build muscle at the same time as losing fat.

Sorry for a long reply, but I'm at that age where the metabolism slows down and the fat starts to stick so I gotta shift this soon.

No. 161532

How do you guys do it to motivate yourself? I always tell myself to exercise 5-6 days a week but end up doing just 2 or 3. Also I want to lose 5 kg( idk how much is in pounds sorry), would it be enough with cardio and core exercise only?

No. 161533

I never had a problem with exercise. I love biking and walking, but I never watched what I ate. I finally started to cut out any snaking and wow, it's only been a week and I can already see results. I'm 5'9, 160-ish. My goal is 130.

No. 161534

>>161532
First, I think of it as "fat loss", not "weight loss". For cardio, do HIIT as it's more effective for burning fat than steady state cardio. Also, start lifting or do bodyweight exercises with weights after you mastered the basics (e.g. able to do 10 reps 3 sets of descending diamond push-ups, 10 reps 3 sets of bulgarian split squats). The more muscle you have, the more it takes for your body to maintain it.

I try to give myself a realistic goal. Even if it will take longer, I work 4 days a week, so I try to go to the gym 2-3 days a week. I just eat a heavy breakfast or lunch and a light dinner. I work a lot at night (retail) so eating a bowl of oatmeal and fruit with coffee for dinner helps me until bed. It isn't too hard if you do what is best for your body and goals since everyone is different. I only want to lose 10-12 pounds and tone up.

Remember, diet is more important than exercise. An hour of continous jogging burns 400 calories. A Big Mac by itself (so no fries or soda) has
549.

Urgh, I wish this were true but it really isn't.

I know how to count calories and log my diet to an absolute tee and my intake is ideal for my height. I also know how to lose weight better than probably anybody on this site but I know that I'll slip back into my old ED if I take it too fast, so I'm taking it slow.

lol okay, explain to me then with your psuedoscience how if a 5'7" adult with an intake of around 1900-2000 kcals of energy per day maintains a healthy weight whilst exuding a minimum amount of output in biological BMR processes only (i.e. mental reception and processing, breathing, basic biological function such as thermoregulation/metabolisation etc.) which for the average woman is known to be around 655 kcals.

So the TDEE is 2000> vs. around <655 out. That's a 1345 kcal surplus that according to you would just vanish into thin air in lieu of being catabolised into energy.

Explain.

5'9", and 180 lbs here. My goals is to be at ~130 lbs. I've actually lost 70 lbs so far, which is kinda crazy to think about.

I have a question regarding building muscle. Can I put on muscle while I'm still eating a deficit. I know that, theoretically, I should not be able to, but in practice is this true? I only do cardio at the moment, but I would like to start building muscle/toning. Should I wait until I'm much closer to my goal weight or start now?

No. 161554

Definitely start now. You probably won't gain muscle, but you'll preserve what you have already. Plus strength training has so many health benefits other than just gaining muscle. Nice job on the weight loss!

No. 161557

>>161553
Good job and congrats on the progress!

You can build muscle while cutting, but it's extremely hard especially if you are not a beginner. It's a constant uphill battle.

The best thing to do is start now but not for losing fat, but to prevent injuries (one of the major reasons to crosstrain). Once you've reached your target weight, then you got a head start. Be forewarned, you will gain that weight back, but in the form of muscle instead of fat. Don't think of it as bad, but as progress.

Also, be sure you are getting enough protein when you start resistenve training. It will help you fuel your resistence workouts and help your muscles recover while you sleep. Also, make sure you are getting enough carbs the day befire you do cardio, since carbs is the primary energy source for cardio unless you are doing some form if HIIT. You don't want to have you aerobic system use your muscles as an energy system.

No. 161558

>>161549
what are you even going on about? the BMR, which correlates to the minimal possible energy expenditure, for a 5'7, 130 lb woman is ~1500 calories. i googled your figure of 655 and found out that the harris benedict equation contains that term; BMR for women = 655 + ( 9.563 x weight in kg ) + ( 1.850 x height in cm ) – ( 4.676 x age in years ); but that term just exists to make the calculation work out. it does not in any way correlate to the minimum possible calorie expenditure – unless you are 0 years old, 0 cm tall and weigh 0 kg.

i'm not sure where you got your degree in "human physiology and biochemistry", but you should ask for your money back. you should also not cite your experience with anorexia as if that gives you authority when speaking about nutrition. it's really quite the opposite. it's like saying "i love to lick door handles and eat people's shit, so i know a lot about proper hygiene and safety".

I never said I have a degree in Human phys. & Biochemistry. It's a branch of certification in my country from an independent educational provider that's below degree standard but above highschool diploma.
My experience with my eating disorder was cited because it irritates me for people to assume that people struggling with being underweight/overweight don't understand what they're eating, what they're putting into their body and how much of it they are consuming when I personally spent years refusing to even touch/inhale food because deep in my fucked little brain I ws somehow convinced that I could potentially gain a modicum of weight even though I knew logically it wouldn't, but hey, anorexia isn't supposed to make sense.

so the equivalent of an associate's degree? possibly from a for-profit school? that's not impressive, lol.

you're correct that activity level affects TDEE, but this is taken into account in the TDEE equations that people use for calorie counting. 1.2x modifier for sedentary people up to 1.9x for extreme levels of activity. do you think that the medical professionals who developed these systems just made them up out of thin air? they are based on measurements of people's actual metabolic rates. your 655 calorie thing is just a complete misinterpretation of the harris-benedict equation.

so you're like
"oh you know the uh, thing, with the um, DNA or whatever… it happens in this pathway or something, there's like, this chemical, and it does some stuff… in a place… yeah… something like that"

you don't even have the very basic understanding of metabolic rate that anyone who's counted calories to lose weight (besides anorexics) has. you took a random number from an equation you don't understand and fixated on it. i'm actually amazed at how wrong you managed to be. unlike the average ignorant person who holds dumb beliefs because they don't know any better, you actually consulted the science – and came out with a ridiculous pile of misinterpretations.

you're obviously personally invested in this issue. you may have fucked up your metabolism with anorexia, making it more difficult to keep the weight off, and if you can't restrict calories without slipping back into ED behaviour, then don't restrict calories. but your situation is not applicable to the average person and you're completely warping the facts that you half-remember from community college to fit your feels.

Does anybody have any tips to avoid binge eating?? I've tried so many things, and I'm usually good about it during the day, but once night time hits, I just get this urge to binge. It's like I can't control myself. I tried by not having snacks or large amounts of foods in my home, but then I end up walking to the convenience store right below my apartment (I live in Japan, and konbinis are everywhere fml) and just buy loads of snacks and pig out just to feel that satisfaction. It's becoming an issue both on my waistline and my wallet, and I don't know how to stop myself once I get on the thought.

No. 161583

This was the hardest thing for me to overcome. I always stayed up late on the internet and I'd pound tons of food for no reason. I knew I had to stop if I wanted to lose weight.
Right now I'm running on pure will power. Every night the thought 'eh who really cares, just eat' runs through my head but I ignore it. I'd never starve myself though, if I'm hungry I eat, but the late night cravings are rarely from hunger, more like boredom.
Right now I will limit myself to a small snack- handful of nuts, yogurt, apple sauce etc. but that's it. Sometimes I'll think about how awesome breakfast will be. Sleeping early also helps. If I do succeed in not pigging out, I feel really good about myself in the morning.

Going to sperg a little bit and try to contribute to the thread. Currently 171 lbs (from 174) and 5'6" .

My weight has fluctuated all over the place throughout my life but my peak weight years ago was 175 lbs. When I saw that number I said enough is enough and got to work losing weight. Although it went well up to losing to the 140 mark, I got a little neurotic after that and accidentally became a bit ana. I didn't realize it at the time but I had all the symptoms/characteristics and got down even further to 110 lbs, I wasn't full skeletor mode but for my body type I looked very skinny. I was like this until I got into a relationship in where I went complete opposite and binged like crazy but still felt really guilty about my eating habits etc.

3 years into my relationship now and I recently went in for my PAP test. They did a general physical and I hadn't weighed myself in a long time since I was honestly afraid. Turns out I bloated back up to essentially my old weight at 174 and again I'm not happy at all with this weight. So September 1st I got a gym membership with my partner and we've been very good about going. I actually love jogging so I've been going in at least 3 times a week to use the treadmills. Soon I would like to start lifting so I can gain more muscles to burn calories. I've also been eating much better since the beginning of the month. I'm not counting calories to avoid becoming obsessive over them, but I am avoiding starchy carbs like pasta, breads, etc. Since I've started I've lost 3lbs which is pretty decent I suppose. I'm going to keep going and hopefully get down to a much more healthy weight for myself.

Image attached is a sort of inspirational thing I made to put on my fridge for fun. I included some ideas for meals or snacks because I often blank on what I feel like eating. I've been vegetarian for over a year so thats why there aren't any meat based dishes.

If anyone wants to share some weight lifting experiences, tips, or exercises that would be fantastic. Also does anyone else get very bored while lifting? Any tips on how to avoid this or maybe some small mind games you play to keep yourself entertained? It would be really appreciated !

i'm at around 106 right now at 5'1". i had dropped from 115 to 108 to 103 over the past year without trying. i used to be around 105-108 beginning my junior year of college. before that i would fluctuate between 93-103. i was loving the way i looked at 103 recently, but then i suddenly started gaining weight again. i really want to lose it and hit 99 again.

for the past year i've been lifting very heavy (like i bench my body weight for reps), so i know some of it is muscle, but i was doing the same a few weeks ago at 103. i hate the way my clothes are fitting again.

This is my favorite recipe; low carb ice cream.

1/2 pound of lard
1 cup blueberries
Splenda to taste

Combine room temperature lard, splenda, and berries in a bowl until lard has turned light purple. Enjoy at room temperature. The ice cream can't be cooled or else it'll be rock solid.

Easy, delicious, low carb.

wow, we seriously are pretty much the same! yeah, back at 103, my tummy was almost always flat. my waist stayed at 22.5-23" all day, even after eating a lot. now it goes from 23.5"~24". it makes me sad.

i had visible abs not to long ago, and now it's all gone. well, the top two are still visible, but it sucks. and from my belly button under looks so bloated after i start eating for the day

i actually had visible abs at 106 recently! i think my abs come because of water weight, though, they are visible even when my tummy isn't flat. i was only able to eat/drink liquids for 3 days because i had surgery, and it really debloated me and made me lose a lot of water weight, even though my actual weight didn't budge. by the end of it i had full on abs lmao.

:( then i started eating whole foods again and the lines are gone.

i want my waist to stay at tight all day. mine can go from 23" all the way to 26" at the end of the day (if im on my period)… its crazy. sometimes i look literally pregnant if i am super bloated :( i think it has to do with height though, my taller friends don't complain about it as much :/

i'm jealous. i wish my waist would go back down to 22.5 or at least 23. it has stayed at minimum 23.5" for about a week now. i do remember when mine would fluctuate from 23~26, though. it used to do that last year when i was around 110lbs, i think.

just out of curiosity, do you also have a thigh gap? does yours disappear as the day goes on? if my tummy is flat, i can have a nice gap, but if i get even a little bloated, it goes away.

unless you're running very far or running moderately far pretty fast (or doing things like sparring in martial arts), cardio doesn't do a significant amount for weight loss. what matters more is what you eat. i did lose weight when i began running before, but that's because i would run when waking up, before eating, which made me less hungry and delayed my hunger. it might have done something to help my metabolism. also, depending on how you're doing weights, that might actually be more cardio than strength training. for example, kettlebells are cardio and strength. a lot of gym classes and fitness videos like les mills are more cardio than strength even though they use weights.

Anons,I need some serious advice.

(Tl:dr version)
Im 22,5 feet tall and weigh 155 pounds as of weighing myself this morning. This is the most ive weighed in my life and I seriously look like lena dunham lol. Pls help.

(Details)
From age 12 to 20 I was around 120 to 130 pounds and I didnt consider myself fat but these past 2 years ive gained so much due to stress from school and working and supporting myself that its starting to make me depressed and I almost feel like I will never know what its like to be skinny or a normal weight again since im only getting older and life is getting more stressful.
So before that becomes a self fulfilling proficy I need some good weight loss advice, I finally have my life more or less together so now I can focus on my physical appearance.
So for someone who has never ever dieted or exercised before what should I do and what is some good solid advice I should follow to lose weight?
Heres a few things about my lifestyle that might influence that answer, first off I work 2 jobs and I only get 1 day off in the week. I would prefer running outdoors to working out in a stuffy gym because im basically inside all day long. I dont drink soda (its gross) but I do like beer,however I limit myself to 1 bottle if I do drink becouse I know its bad for me. Also im a vegetarian,I dont eat fish or meat out of moral convictions but I really love carbs and dairy.
Heres a sample of my daily meals if it helps:
Breakfast: eggs and berries with avacado on toast and a coffee with milk but no sugar.
Lunch: a slice of pizza and a green tea with no sugar from starbucks( I get 15 mins off for lunch at one of my jobs, there arent too many options in that time limit but im willing to cut out lunch and just have another coffee instead)
Dinner: I like to eat out with coworkers or my boyfriend after work (usually its after 5pm at one of my jobs but its after 10pm at my other job so it depends in the day) so it tends to be unhealthy (vegan sushi,vegan ramen,Korean food,etc) and a beer. Honestly dinnertime is the only time in the day I get to relax and see friends and I would prefer to keep it, I know eating late is the worst for you but I would be willing to cut out breakfast and lunch completely if I get to keep dinner.
Sometimes ill have time for a snack during the day, ill have some fruit, nuts or pretzels from the vending machine or a clif bar,maybe a pastry from starbucks if im feeling it. Im not really a snacker to be honest but I do drink lots of tea through out the day.

I shared everything I could and I really hope someone here can help point me in the right direction. My weightloss goal isnt a number but just to look skinny again. I really miss it even though I was definitely skinnyfat at best. Thanks for reading.

If you are this huge you probably eat a lot more than you just reported, not trying to be a cunt, just saying.
Maybe going totally vegan could help you.

Honestly I usually have a really big dinner but throughout the day everything I just listed thats what I really eat purely due to lack of time and sometimes even just to save money (eating out gets pricy), I skip lunch a few days out of the week for financial reasons (so I can afford dinner out that day)
Maybe I got this big becouse I work 2 desk jobs, but im I still do the grunt work and run around the office all day.
I can post a candid when I get out of work if it helps.

Oh, okay. You probably know it but skipping meal is not a great idea and it's even worst if you skip your lunch and then stuff your face at night.
You maybe have bad eating patern and habbit, if you can manage to have your biggest meal for the breakfast and lunch you will probably gains a better control over your weight.
It's better if you choose to skip dinner than lunch since you use litteraly no energy (you consume calorie to do basic fonction like breathing and being generaly alive…) at night when you're sleeping.

If you are going to get wasted, you can eat like a pig and hope that your body will reject it because of alcohol.

Doing exercise is great but the main factor in weight loss / control is what you eat, focus on your diet first and drop a few kilos than you can start doing sports like yoga or swimming, you can even lift weight if you want a more tonned look.

Intermittent fasting is a thing. There's nothing wrong with skipping a meal, but this post is right in regards to it being better to skip dinner. Skip dinner or breakfast, not lunch. Dinner should always be light.

I lost some weight when i started just eating dinner. I wasnt hungry in the morning and worked busy shifts with no break and got off at 10-11pm. Then I'd eat and go to the gym afterwards (which is possibly why eating like that was okay).

Thank you for the advice anon, if I eat healthy foods(salad,lentils,qinoa etc) for dinner is it still ok to eat late?
If thats the case ill try to have anything bad that I might be craving the night before (like sushi or ramen) for breakfast the next morning or lunch,but only a few times a week would that help?
>>161619
Thats a good idea, ive been wanting to pick up yoga for a while just to relax but I never associated it with weight loss, is it really effective? And is it something I have to do in combination with other exercises? If I did it at home with instructional videos would it still be effective? Sorry for all the questions, should I just google it?
>>161620
So if I have one meal a day it should be lunch, and a light snack for breakfast and dinner?
I could negotiate to have a longer break at my other job, they do offer 1 hour lunch breaks but it cuts into my pay, however im willing to make that sacrifice for the sake of weight loss.

Im sad about letting my late night dinners go, its the only time I get to see my friends and socialize and it would be hard to resist temptation to eat if im with them,but maybe If I can resist eating meat at korean bbq I can resist anything.
Whats worse is they like to go out for bubble tea and dessert post dinner and I don't know if I can avoid drinking bubble tea even if I like it with no sugar I know tapioca and milk is terrible for me especially late at night.

The worst part of all this is all of my friends are skinny, im the only one that has gained weight since college and I was bigger than them back them too, a few of them hike with their boyfriends and go to the gym but most of them dont exercise. When I ask them what their secret is they mostly tell me they skip most meals and drink lots of tea which is what I do. Could it also be stress?
To be honest in my friend group im the only white girl, everyone else is korean with the exception of one filipino girl who is the only person that really works out, could it be muh genetics or am I actually doing something wrong.
Were all around 5ft to 5'2 but everyone else weighs around 90 to 110 pounds.

One thing that I think is helpful is to not eat something sweet in the morning. Definitely not carbs. it can set you into craving sweets or carbs for the day to keep that higher sugar level. I'd recommend an egg white omelette or something like that. Grapefruit is a good one. For a while I was eating those Velveeta prepackaged 180 calorie things for lunch then waiting for dinner to eat anything else. I advise chicken breast with mustard or fish for dinner

You can eat out and not stuff yourself, but it definitely shouldn't be a regular everyday thing. But you could eat half the plate and take the rest home for lunch the next day, so you're not eating pizza all the time (also saving some money).

At this point, (speaking as 5' 118lbs) it's probably down to portion sizes. Chances are when your korean friends do eat its probably not pizza everyday.

Youtube yoga videos are okay and could help, the problem is that you may be doing something wrong and not know.

I'm in a similar position with regards to eating late and not getting to eat much during the day. I don't get a lunch break apart from maybe once a week taking 10 minutes to eat a bag of chips (ukfag, I work next door to a chippy) so I graze on a sandwich and some fruit with yoghurt through the day when I have a minute to spare. My job is quite physical so when I get home I'm hungry. I'll often have a snack, then cook dinner for when the bf comes home, which means dinnertime is often 11pm. I get up at 6.30. Fuck, this is why losing weight is taking ages.

I just don't get time to eat a big lunch at work, and the few times I have in the past couple of years I've been so sleepy in the afternoon I can't get anything done.

I see where your coming from. A couple years ago I started dieting and working out for the first time in my entire life. (I was homeschooled since grade 2, so I literally sat around all day in my house and never moved my body.) Starting to exercise for myself was harder for me than the dieting tbh just because my body wasn't used to it at all. I recommend finding an activity you enjoy doing so when you do work out, you dont loathe it. My personal favorite is jogging and I would recommend interval training to start. You want your exercise to be about 25-30 minutes of cardio at least in the beginning. For interval training you flop between jogging and walking, so its easier to lean into especially for beginners. When I fell out of exercising and now am returning to it, this is what my jog looks like

5 minute warm up, fast walk
1 minute jogging/1 minute walking repeating until 20 - 25 minute mark,
5 minute cool down.

If you even find this too difficult at first, you could even have 2 minutes of walking in between for rest period. You'll do this for 1 week and then the next you try to push yourself to 2 minutes jogging, 1 minute rest period. And 1 week with that, you try to push yourself to 3 minute jogging, etc. Try your best but please also keep in mind to listen to your body, if you truly feel like you're pushing yourself to hard just ease up a bit. Its better to do that then injure yourself in the long run.

Try to exercise at least 3 times a week. You are theoretically allowed to do cardio as much as you want, but weight lifting requires rest days so your muscle fibers can heal. You can still weight lift consecutive days in a row, but you need to focus on different muscle groups. So say you could do 1 day legs, 1 days arms/chest, 1 day core, etc. But I personally prefer to do all over lifting routines every other day. If you can, just try googling exercise for beginners and phrases like that, you can find some good starting routines to follow.

As for eating I'm a vegetarian as well. I never lost any weight on it until recently when I cut out starchy carbs. So of course try to eat as much proteins as you can (low calorie cheeses like feta, cottage cheese, or cream cheese), greek yogurt, beans, etc etc. And avoid things like breads, pastas, and white potatoes. You should still eat things like quinoa, yams, and rice but try to limit your intake of them.

I've gained 30 lbs and the weight won't come off. I've been on a starvation diet for almost a month and I've lost nothing. I don't even know how I gained so much. I went from 130 to 160 and I feel really gross and ugly.

I've been living off of coffee, plain iced tea, water, bananas, carrots, grapes, melons and tiny cups of rice. I have some cheese sometimes too. I do eat white potatoes but I heard they were bad. So I guess I'll stop once I finish the two I have left. My portions are very small and careful measured.

Some days I don't even eat what would be called a meal. I hate myself every time I eat anything. I never eat fast food. I think it's disgusting. The smell of McDonalds makes me sick. I also hate bread because the smell makes me gag. The gagging is uncontrollable and I can't stop. So I can't even be near a loaf. I used to think maybe that was related to celiac disease. But I've been tested twice and I don't have it.

I hate just about every gross fatty choked food out there. My only real addiction was candy and chocolate. But I quit them. I only have a few tictacs or altoids now if I want candy. I normally don't eat cake and I quit pie months ago.

I have hypothyroid and lupus. I suffer from gastroparesis. So I can't overeat even if I want to. I'd throw up. I don't have PCOS or any cortisol issues. I'm on plaquenil and levothyroxine 75 mcg.


I have almost no clothes left that fit me. And I won't buy new clothes because fatty doesn't deserve them.

My thighs are rubbing together and it burns. When I was 130 they only slightly brushed each other. I'm not huge yet. But I look way bigger than I should. Why won't the weight come off? I try to keep it under 1000 calories a day. You'd think the weight would drop off. But it's not going anywhere. I'm not very active in summer but I'm very active in winter. In summer I tend to stay inside because of the sun and the heat.

You might think I'm lying and chowing down on three big macs or something right now. But trust me I'm not. I'm really depressed. No one wants a fatty but chubby chasers. I hate my body and I just don't know what to do any more. I'm 100% honest about not eating. Even before I gained my only real crime was too many sweets. Which I have quit. Would it really take a month for weight to start coming off?

My goal is 110-115. The last time I weight myself I was 160 exactly.

I accidentally deleted a paragraph.

My endocrinologist says I'm not fat and I don't need my thyroid medicine increased. She wouldn't do anything else for me. I can't believe she'd look at a person who is 5'4" and 160 lbs and not think they need to lose weight. I live in America by the way. Maybe that's why. It seems doctors won't tell you that you're fat unless you need to be weighed at the zoo.

I don't know if this could possible be related. But around the same time I started gaining a lot of weight my jaw became misaligned. My teeth don't line up right and I have to put my tongue between them to keep them from hitting each other wrong. Right now none of my bottom teeth is hitting the left front tooth and pushing on it. And the outer groove on a back tooth on the right is spearing the middle of the tooth on top of it. This makes chewing very very difficult.

Not much. I walk a lot. I used to lift some weights and I did some leg lifts. I wasn't too active before but my weight didn't go up.

1) don't ever starve yourself. It's very damaging to you. It'll make your hypothyroidism and lupus worse. One of my co-workers used to do that. Now, at 26, she can't lose weight at all despite that she runs marathons. Her doctors have found nothing wrong with her. Hopefully you are not at this point.

Stick to a standard 2000 calorie a day diet. Don't stick to any if those fad diets (Adkins, South Beach). Just look up the daily recommended food meal for the average person.

2) you say that you are axtive in winter but not summer due to the summer heat? Do you not have a gym nearby that you can utilize during the summer with AC? You'll need to burn off a lot since your body is hoarding a lot due to you being in starvation mode. Continue lifting but add in some cardio twice a week. Don't do calusthenics–you need to be doing heavy lifting to build upserious muscle.

No. 161633

>>161631

Well I mean you probably already know this but weightloss is a partnership between both diet and exercise. You can't eat little and hardly move or eat a lot and exercise daily and expect to lose any weight quickly.

If you want quick results obviously cardio is your way forward. It is faster but you'll develop almost no muscle tone and might end up flabby. Even running up and down the stairs repeatedly and doing star jumps is something if it's too hot to run.

If you want best results disregard cardio and focus on weight exercises.
Your body will burn energy from fat in order to power through sets, and as your muscles tear, repair and engorge they require more energy from fat to maintain so whilst initial weight loss will be slower, long-term you'll end up looking better and also even if you stop working out for a while the muscle will remain for a long time and continue to burn up that energy.

If you're that desperate to lose the weight fast and don't care about smelling disgusting and feeling irritable and craving-sugar like no tomorrow, induct keto.
You'll be dropping any where between 3-6lbs per week until it levels out and you'll only be losing fat, no muscle, whereas starvation catabolises both fat and muscle.

No. 161636

I think I'm going to try to stop eating so much. My boyfriend hardly eats anything at all and I feel so, do guilty when I eat and he doesn't. I feel like a fat cow next to him. I will try to eat more veggies and granola/protein bars, and a lot less carbs and junky foods. I am going to try to log my food every day now, since I'm so bad about it.

I drink at least my 32 oz water bottle every single day, and I almost never drink soda nor beer. But I know I will have to start doing some sort of cardio. There's a park right behind my house that goes in a loop that I will probably start running. Also, I should probably start doing weight exercises to tone my excess fat.

Laxative use for weightloss is a myth as the active ingredient (bisacodyl) only functions to stimulate the bowel into moving waste materials that are already present within it.
It doesn't actually effect the rate at which you digest food, the only thing that can do that is a metabolic stimulant such as caffeine.

If you take a laxative after a meal the only thing that's going to happen is you'll digest the food, absorb the calories, and then very suddenly you'll have a big sloppy shit/diarrhoea.

Yh a lot of people are sensitive to caffeine so it will also stimulate the bowels.
I have to use laxatives and caffeine because of chronic constipation that didn't leave even after recovering from anorexia and you have to be careful using bisacodyl because although it's used to treat constipation if you use it too regularly it will actually end up making you more constipated as your body starts relying on it.

Basically, don't abuse laxatives guys, ever.

I think I have a problem with health and fitness.
Like, it's a problem, but it kind of isn't.

Whenever I do something of import, I never half half-ass it, it's always either all or nothing.
I'm a recovered anorexic. I say recovered because I'm fucking fat as hell now but I still have incredibly disordered eating. I've had a difficult time maintaining my weight and diet over the last 3 years specifically because every time I began to moderate myself I'd start to slip back into old habits. Again, all or nothing.

A month ago I moved and I decided, fresh start, new me, get healthy, get hot, and it's exploded beyond what I expected.

I'm exercising in my room every single night, mostly 1 hour of calisthenics with 44lb dumbbells,
Every morning I swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon before I take a cocktail of 9 different vitamins. Throughout the day I ensure I consume about 5 pieces of varying fruit, enough protein-based foods to repair and build my muscles whilst sucking down 5-6 cups of green tea and 4-5 bottles of water.
At night before I go to bed I take 1 dose of yohimbine and occasionally bisacodyl to keep me regular on my low intake.

In the last month I've already lost 14lbs and that's not even calculating in muscle mass I've created so it's probably even more.
My body feels amazing and is looking better every day, my skin is sparkling and immaculate, my hair is silky, smooth and lustrous, my eyes look brighter, I feel more energetic and alert, but my entire day is consumed by thoughts of health and fitness and what I can do to push it further and faster and harder and I can't stop. I even went out the other day and dropped £60 on LUSH products and FUCK THEY'RE SO GOOD.

Even as I'm typing this I'm flexing my butt cheeks individually to work up my gluteus medius control.

Have I graduated to orthorexia? Is there anybody else who understands this?

I'm 5'3.5" and around 95 pounds. A few months ago, I was like 68 pounds, which I know is too low, so inb4 ana pls go. Anyway, I feel like absolute shit about myself now and am constantly thinking about suicide. I am disgusted by my body to the point where I can't even take a shower without it turning into a several-hour-long sobfest/self-injury party (I know that sounds emo as fuck, but I literally want to cut the fat off of my body). The thing is, as soon as I started eating more (I restricted to under 1000 calories/day for months and, before that, under 1400 calories for close to a decade without a single fucking "cheat day" or anything), I developed a massive appetite that won't go away no matter how much I eat. I can sit down and eat 1000+ calories over the course of an hour and still be ravenous even though I feel physically full. I am always hungry. I can't even sleep because I'm so hungry. I gradually started eating more and more until I was eating over 2400 calories/day every day for a while. I'm now eating no more than 2000, but I know it's still too much. I'm desperate to get back down to 85 at MOST (I have a really, really small frame) - that's where I was maintaining for most of my adult life, I was medically stable, getting regular periods, etc. Now, I'm flabby as fuck and it's awful.

Since I can't seem to return to eating how much (little?) I used to eat, I've started trying to exercise more (using an elliptical and walking, mostly, just because those are the options that are free and available to me), but I don't think it's doing a goddamn thing. My thighs and stomach are a mess. I've been thinking about getting a Fitbit and/or joining a gym to try to motivate myself to exercise even more, but I know I need to cut down on how much I'm eating, too. I can't fucking do it. I don't know what's wrong with me and I'm desperate to stop this awful hunger. I even bought some of those bullshit garcinia cambogia pills out of desperation, hoping that they'd do something, but, unsurprisingly, I haven't noticed a difference.

I have gone to my doctor and pleaded with her to try to figure out if there's something wrong with me, like my hormone levels being fucked up, that's causing me to be this hungry, but she has no ideas. People keep telling me that I just need to gain more weight and I'll stop being hungry, but that's not an option I'm even willing to entertain. I can't even fucking stand how my body is now. I'm not going to gain any more weight willingly, but I'm scared I'll keep gaining weight whether I want to or not.

Anyways, anyone else dealt with insatiable hunger? WHAT DO? This is ruining what's left of my life, and I don't know how much longer I can take it.

So last year, after reaching my highest ever weight (180 lbs at 5'6"), I made an attempt to get my life back in order. Im 160lbs now, not impressive or anything but atleast its not fatter, right? Anyways, my issue is… I compared my measurements and ive lost 1" from my waist, lost 3" from my hips, and…. Gained 2" on my thighs. What the shit is happening? Im so frustrated, i dont get it. Is this normal? My goal is to lose 30lb more so i can be 130lb, will my thighs keep getting bigger though? Ughhh

Honestly with a 20lb weight loss you will have definitely have lost a great deal many inches than what you've recorded.

It's my suspicion that you didn't measure yourself correctly when you originally took your measurements.

Regarding your legs, it may well be that you've gained muscle there if you've been exercising.

At the end of the day Anon the numbers are irrelevant so long as you "know" you've lost weight. How you look with weight loss is secondary, changes to your health is what is more important so concentrate on that.

No problem, I'm happy that you feel better about yourself physically and mentally.

I tried taking my measurements too for a while but I was never too sure if I was measuring accurately and it began making me anxious so I just stopped altogether.
Unless you're trained how to take them precisely maybe not bother lest you risk losing motivation i.e. "I've lost all this weight and nothing has changed, why even bother…" proceeds to stuff face.

If I were you I'd just try to rely on visual markers.

I'm pretty sure that >>161676 is correct. I'm sure you've lost at least 2~3" from your waist if you've lost 20lbs. That's just standard, and in my experience, it's true. As far as your legs, I also think it's muscle or you are changing where you're measuring. The best thing, in my opinion, is to measure only in the mornings and take pictures.

yeah, also short here. being 5'1" is hard. even with all the exercise i do, i don't burn that much because i'm a smaller person. then when i started counting calories, i fucked up and made myself think i had way more calories to spare, so i started overeating and not only gained 5 lbs but increased my goddamn appetite. my stomach wants more to feel satiated.

That will only put your body into starvation mode and will make it easier for you to gain the weight back. You might lose weight but it's a really bad idea for long term weight loss.

And if you're anything like me, depriving yourself of enough calories for an extended period of time could cause you to binge eat, then hate yourself.

1200 a day is the gold standard. A couple hundred above and below is not bad. Exercise more instead of eating less calories.

Currently on my weight loss journey. In January I weighed myself for the first time in years and the scale said 195lbs (I'm 5'7"), and I cried for hours. The other day I got down to 152!

One exercise that I really enjoy is hula hooping. I really recommend it to people who don't like to exercise. I hate exercising (part of the reason why I got so fat), but hula hooping is really low impact, and you can do it without having to leave your house, watch a movie, etc. It doesn't burn a ton of calories per minute, but if you are doing it during a 2 hour movie it takes a nice chunk out of your daily cals. Also you can like tighten your abs while you hoop!

Are there any lolitas here? What would be an ideal weight for someone my height who wants to be able to fit into pretty most of the major brands? I've never actually been below 145lbs so I'm not sure what my waist will look like, but currently it's 32"

I have exercise-induced asthma and, after doing any sort of intense exercise, I start becoming completely unable to breathe or regain my breath. I don't have an inhaler anymore, but I'm going to try to get one this week.

I miraculously started sleeping again as of a few nights ago, and my insatiable hunger is no longer present. I've been eating ~1000 calories/day for a few days now and feeling fine. I wonder how fast I can lose 10 pounds of fat? I can't stand being in this awful body. It doesn't feel like it even belongs to me.

It's stupid, but to be perfectly honest, when I was at a BMI of ~12, I finally felt "comfortable in my own skin" for the first time. I wish I could get back there without having to face all of the health problems being that underweight can bring. Fuck this world. Fuck this body.

What am I doing so wrong?

I do HIIT 6 days a week and I usually do a couple days worth of HIIT in a single day. A typical day is lunch, a snack that consists of either fruit, coffee, oatmeal with some cocoa powder, chia pudding, or "healthy" oat cookies where I omit oil for plain apple sauce. Once a month I have a cheat day where I can eat regular cookies, or go out for lunch. That's it for the day and I'm usually not hungry after that. It's pretty boring and routine at this point.

I am overweight. I've lost about 60 pounds and I'm trying to lose my final 20. I'm pear shaped and lately I've noticed my stomach is finally getting smaller. My right side is smaller for some reason. There isn't much of a muffin top on that side, but there is on the left.

The past couples day I gave in to my urges and ate two single serving cookie with chocolate chips, peanut butter, the works. No apple sauce, used coconut oil and didn't omit anything on both days. I also ate a baked sweet potato with cinnamon on both days. I looked in the mirror today and my right side now has a muffin top that matches my left side and my sides stick out again like when I was incredibly overweight. I've also noticed my face is puffy.

I'm pretty overweight at 203lbs, but about a month and a bit ago I was 225lbs exactly.

I've known for over 2 years now that my weight has spiralled out of control and that I needed to do something about it.
I like to watch a lot medical/physiology themed shows and documentaries and I recently heard in one of them that it takes 3 weeks minimum for a person to change a habit.

I decided to sever my intake by half and exercise 5-6 nights a week 1 hour minimum for about 3 weeks and see what kind of changes it would make and the changes so far have been astounding.
My once ravenous appetite has shrunk to me having around 3-4 food items per day, mostly carbohydrate for energy + protein and if I don't fit in my nightly exercise before I go to bed I feel INCREDIBLY restless and uncomfortable and will start moving my legs around in bed or doing bicycle crunches just to get something done.
I have a set that I need to complete nightly otherwise I can't sleep comfortably.

It used to be that I could buy a 4-pack of doughnuts and polish them off as a snack before devouring 2 pastries for dinner with a mocha on the side. Now I can't even imagine trying to cram that much into my stomach; I would puke.

my work has a brunch buffet on sunday, and we get to eat the leftovers. that's why i had so many different things.

on a normal day i have:
1 omelette (1/3 cup egg whites with 1 slice of velveeta, spinach, onions, and mushrooms), 1 can vienna sausage or 1/3 can corned beef hash or 1 serving of reduced fat velveeta shells and cheese (180 calories), 2~3 fudgscicles, 3 apples, a cheese stick or a small spinach salad with craisins and crispy noodles, some chocolate (usually 2 of the mini reeses cups), and sometimes a sort of bread like 1/4th of a bagel my bf is eating or maybe 1/2 a pancake. occasionally i eat sushi

now i also work 9-10 hour shifts with an hour commute each day. during the summer it was an hour and a half commute because of traffic. then i was working 5 days a week, but now i work only 4. so basically very similar to you in terms of work hours. i easily have time to go to the gym every day, but i tend to go at like 11PM~12AM and stay until almost 2AM often.

i imagine that it would be different with children, but i know a lot of people still work out. growing up, my mother worked 8 hour shifts 5x a week as a nurse. she was an exercise fanatic – had abs, ran half marathons and a full one once, etc. she basically just worked out while my sister and i were at after school activities… sometimes she'd take us to the gym with her and have us do homework there. or when my sister was at soccer practice, she'd run around the fields for the whole practice.

when i got into high school, she'd wake me up at 5AM to run 5ks with her before work/school. we would run races on the weekends, too, and she'd make me do shit like P90x with her.

your kids might be too young, but you can involve them. even do something like yoga?

So many moms make excuses to get fat and flabby because 'muh kids!!' when there are plenty of moms who don't let themselves go. My only issue is not having a 24 hour gym near me either. Mine closes at 10:30 on weeknights and 7pm on weekends, so I don't even get to go to the gym on weekends unless I do the early shift, which would kill me.

People can easily go cardio in their home with free youtube videos.

I started working out a month ago and I've been doing really well at forcing myself to go daily. I don't calorie count, but I try eat whenever I'm hungry and keep my portions at a decent size where I'll feel full but not bloated/overeat, but up until a few days ago (where I caved and bought chips for the first time in MONTHS), I've been craving snacks and food to eat like mad. I feel so incredibly guilty and I'm used to have pretty good self control over not eating too much junk food but now I'm going nuts over it… After dinner I get a small apple to eat but it does nothing for me and I just want to eat chips.

pffthaha I fucking love it. Since starvation mode is probably affecting your thought process and perception I'll spell it out as clear as possible for you:

YOU were the ones who claimed to be hungry all the time, indicating something's wrong with your diet.

YOU were the ones who claimed to binge so much that you've increased your weight to twice what it used to be after oh-so religiously following a strict calorie intake.

I never claimed eating less = automatically bad. I claimed if you're feeling starved all the time and/or having uncontrollable urges to binge, you're probably not doing something right with your diet, hmm?

I started a slimming class 2 weeks ago, been following their 'lifestyle change' plan, completely changing my diet to be more healthy and no sweets/soda (I allow myself one can of diet soda and a treat such as a small bar of chocolate on a Saturday) and I've been attending the gym minimum 3x per week for at least 1.5 hours doing a mix of cardio and weights (For Cardio, either 20 minutes of jogging on treadmill or on the cross trainer followed by rowing machine and then 10-15 minutes on whatever I didn't do at the start (treadmill or cross trainer). I can see in the mirror that I've lost weight as I actually have a waist line, my trousers are loose and a top that was once skin tight is now slightly loose on me.
But at my weigh in tonight I'd gained 1.5lbs. I just don't understand it.

I'm 120lb and 5'6 and would like to lose a little bit of weight, but all of my friends and family are against it. Even my boyfriend. I'm already a size zero, but I don't exercise much so I have a little bit of a tummy and squishier arms/thighs.

Everyone close to me thinks it's bad, though… I guess it's because I recently recovered from an eating disorder and used to be 98lbs… But I'm okay now, and I'm basically just trying to make sure I'm eating healthier and exercising more. I don't even want to necessarily lose weight, just a few inches on some of the flabbier parts of my body.

I'm currently eating 1,200cal a day and I try to go running 3x a week for 2 miles each time. (I'm still getting into the habit, so I can't run that far yet.) I don't drink soda. I don't consume sweets. My only vice is a snack sized bag of chips twice a week or so when I'm baked and have the munchies, but even then I try and have it all fit into the 1,200cal.

Do you have a heart rate monitor? And if you do, do you ever come close to the zones estimated for your age (i.e. 220 - age etc)? I've found that as I've become fitter it is MUCH harder to raise my HR during intervals.

But intervals are only meant to increase endurance and not weight loss per se so you should still be losing weight unless you haven't recalculated your BMR. It's very possible that six days a week is overtraining and you need to rest more.

Any tips on getting back on track with eating more healthy after holidays and such?

Does the amount of calories you burn really matter in a workout?

My shins have been causing me a lot of pain if I run too many days in a row, so I've resorted to using the stationary bike and increasing the load to still get a good workout, but I still only burn half the calories I do compared to when I run on a treadmill for the same about of time (which is 100 on the bike, and around 200 on the treadmill… weak af but I've just started working out recently so I hope I can do more later).

Losing weight isn't much of a priority as gaining muscle and just being fit…

Also, what are you opinions on this thing? We have it in my dormitory's gym and I only just recently started seeing a girl use it and apparently it has a lot of good reviews but I feel like something so "easy" looking can't actually work out my core as good as other body weight exercises… It's called the Panasonic EU6441A Core Muscle Trainer if someone wants to look up the reviews.

If you're intending to lose fat; yes.
Calories are just units of energy, the same way you measure any other unit. When you exercise your body goes "o shit son we need some energy" and begins breaking down fat on your body and converting into energy.

If you're just wanting to get strong lifting heavy things and putting them down will also cause your body to convert fat deposits into energy for usage in your activity, and you will get better results long term, but short term you won't initially lose as much weight because it's not HI.

Do a search for "beginner bodyweight" and a bunch of beginner exercise programs will pop up.

Are you getting enough water? If that's not the culprit, trying edging your calories up slightly again. It seems counterintuitive and certainly doesn't make sense, but I've actually maintained a higher rate of fat loss at a slightly higher calorie intake per day than I was getting at a lower amount of calories.

The biggest loser is not a reliable source there was a story about how they managed so much weight loss in a week, lots of tricks that were obviously kept from the public. Although its true being very heavy means you can lose a lot in one week, losing 20lbs in 1 week is not natural even at a very heavy weight. One contestant who did that gained 32lbs in 5 days just from drinking water and now pees blood. A lot of the weight loss on that show was to do with dehydration. If I can find the article will post, it was very interesting.

Ughhhhhh, binge drinking gives you a beer gut because your liver is working on breaking down alcohol instead of fat, by not drinking your liver had a healthy breakfast and went back to it's intended job.

That's why you lost the weight, if no alcohol wasn't involved whatsoever and you were over eating, it would've taken a whole lot longer for you to burn that fat off… Hence, obesity.

It had nothing to do with weight loss and everything to do with sobriety, they are not the same thing.

The same thing happened to me, I was near 150lbs (5'7) because of binge drinking for almost a year. I finally was able to break free from it and got down to 120lbs just over a month.

Doctor told me that my liver was making up for lost time and was beginning to burn fat instead of alcohol. But in fairness, I also had to change my diet and exercise daily as well, so it didn't just fall off me by just quitting the booze… but all those factors helped a great deal in losing weight quicker than expected.

No that isn't the article I was talking about (although that article is a great read!) It was an interview with one of the male contestants who gained 56lbs back after leaving the show. It was specifically about the techniques they used to get them to lose high amounts and why most constestants end up putting weight back on when they leave.

That article you posted covers a bit of that but also how they were treated like people-I was horrified when I first read it and feel really bad for them.

I used to really like that show but also feel bad that I was not losing the amount the contestants did (however I am nowhere near their sizes) and thought I was "lazy" for only losing 1 lb per week. But I value my ability to walk and I have always had knee troubles (even when I was thin) so will not be doing the drastic things like on that show.

No. 161855

I don't have BED but I do want to try to help.
The first thing that helped me with binging or just mindlessly snacking was to remove the "bad" snacks from the house (I don't like to think of foods as good or bad but I mean, tortilla chips and cookies aren't exactly the best.)

I like to replace those foods with lower calorie/healthier alternatives that will still help curb the same cravings. Seaweed chips, unsalted or lightly salted nuts, sweet mini peppers, berries, and carob chips are my go-tos. I'm a grazer so it helps to have something to snack on.

Also, up your protein. It'll keep you fuller longer. When you feel yourself wanting to snack, try a glass of water or a cup of tea/coffee first. If you still feel hungry, you're actually hungry and it's time to eat!

Not the best advice since I'm no nutritionist but I hope it helps. I always feel hella guilty and often get the urge to purge after eating "bad" snacks so I (kinda) feel your pain. But you've got this! Don't think of it as restricting or a diet. You're just rethinking food (think of it as fuel–delicious fuel, sure, but fuel.)

First, a disclaimer that I've had kind-of fucked up eating habits for a while.

I've had a binging problem for a while too. I recently did a 21-day water fast, and lost 30 lbs. I found that the fast really helped in stopping the binging after the fast for some time. Binging for me was impossible after my fast; tiny portions stuffed me.

However, once your stomach starts stretching you might find yourself able to binge again. It happened for me, and I found myself in a binge-fast cycle for a little while. I'm still at my post-fast weight, which is good. Right now, I'm trying to work out an intermittent fasting schedule where I have an eating window for a couple of hours in the day and fast for the rest. I've tried the whole "small portions frequently" thing before, but it just makes me more prone to binging because I'm just constantly around and thinking about food, then. It might be something you may want to try, since its what most professionals recommend when tackling BED.

There have been times in the past where I will do really good with eating for about a week or two, or I will fast for just a few days and I can notice a difference like that. But I always end up gaining all the weight back and I am back to square one. I read online that they have medication for the disorder, but I am a bit reluctant to try it.
I am 5'5" and the last time I weighed myself I was around 220 I think. For years I was stuck around 160-180 and then I got pregnant, gained 20 pounds, and I ended up miscarrying. 10 more pounds after that due to being depressed. Got pregnant again and got up to about 240-250 before I had my son, and now I am stuck at 220! I feel disgusting. I cry when I look in the mirror. I want my life back.

Not sure if this has been asked yet, I apologize if it has, but do you guys have recommendations for diet pills?

I'm currently 5'6" and 130 lbs, want to get down to at most 110 lbs (preferably 95-100). I've lost 40 lbs so far without the pills but I thought it would be nice to have something to supplement my diet, and make the weight loss go a little faster.

i do an EC stack. it's super popular among bodybuilders. it's ephedrine (what used to be in hydroxycut) and caffeine. ephedrine was banned in diet pills, but you can still buy it online or use behind the counter asthma meds like bronkaid or primatene. i've gotten three of my coworkers on it, and they love it. one of my coworkers (not one of the three i mentioned) had lost 50+lbs on it before.

it seriously killed my appetite for the first week and got mad energy along with jitters, but now i'm building noticeable tolerance. my boss, who used to take pure ephedrine when it was still legal, isn't taking it every day, so he said he's still feeling the effects full force.

what's really surprising me is how much more muscle i've been able to put on? since i'm not hungry that much, i don't impulsively eat shit foods and actually hit my macros.

i think it makes me a little cranky, though.

>Mom is a health nut who's super strict with all kinds of treats and sweets

>Makes only super healthy basic stuff
>Candy and soda only once a week
>All sugary stuff is strictly banned
>Develop a twisted relationship with sugar and fatty foods, because you get it so rarely you associate it with success, comfort and relaxation and wolf it down every time it's available because you don't know when you'll get more
>Buy snacks and sweets when you grow older and start having your own money
>Move out and basically live on trash food because nobody's there to monitor you and it tastes like freedom
>Gain a lot of weight
>Takes years to get over it and learn healthy eating habits again

So the other extreme isn't good either. Most of my friends who have a healthy relationship with food are the ones who were served regular food but always had a sweet stash they could snack on in moderation when they felt like it. Like puddings, cookies, chocolate bars etc. small sweets to keep them from going on a binge.

5'5" & 135 (probably more since I'm sure I've gained weight and I have no access to a scale). I want to get down to 110 so I can stop being having a flabby mom. I've recently tried working out at the campus fitness center but I don't really know what exercises to do other than jog/walk on the treadmill and benchpress. I have a few questions though.

1.) How do I know the calorie counter on the treadmills are accurate?
2.) How the hell do I eat healthy food on campus when almost every food item on campus is very unhealthy? The only thing I can eat is soup, maybe a caesar salad, and steamed vegetables if I'm lucky. I never eat breakfaast, but if I do I eat scrambled eggs.
3.) How do I get thin without gaining any muscle? When I say thin I mean "Japanese or Korean model with stick legs" thin.

They're not accurate at all and often even overstate what you're burning to make you feel better.

In terms of accuracy:

2) A heart rate monitor. But even then there's so many different results the equations can give you and again most apps overstate to make you feel better. To get the best results it needs to know your sex, weight, max heart rate (which will be close to 220 - age, if it's not you're not working hard enough) and your VO2 max which isn't accessible to most people.

1) A power meter. Pretty much only possible on bikes and will tell you how many watts you're outputting. Then you times by four (the human body is about 25% efficient) and you get the calories burnt. There's still some inaccuracy but it's like 5% rather than the 20-50% from heart rate alone.

Currently I just use a HR monitor and assume I'm burning like 80% of what my app tells me. Power meters are dropping in price so quickly I hope I can get one next year.

right there with you girls. when i was in high school and college, guys always told me i have a cute butt for an asian girl. but now big butts are really the thing, and compared to girls with nice asses these days, i'm pathetic especially since i barely have hips.

HOWEVER don't think that your thighs have to be bulky AND muscular if you want to build your butt up through exercise. if you want to lift your butt/reduce sagging then you might not see a visual difference in your thighs, but if you're trying to add mass, then yes, your thighs will get a little bigger. my thighs don't look bulky, and i was able to add a little bit of mass to my butt.

if you look at a lot of fitness girls, they will have big, round butts. but some of them have tiny, tiny glutes even though everything else is well developed. it's not that they all neglect their glutes – it's just genetics.

My stomach feels so empty I don't even feel hungry anymore, just slightly nauseous and weird, like the walls of my stomach are sticking together.

Apologies in advance for the whining.

I'm trying to lose ~15 pounds and shed a lot of my body fat, but I'm not getting anywhere. I've been much more active lately, and I wish I felt like it was making a difference. I've never had a gym membership and am scared of exercising in public, but I got a Fitbit and am walking at least 10,000 steps a day as well as doing some HIIT on an elliptical at home and doing a lot of pushups to try to build up some arm muscle. There's so much conflicting shit online about exercise and fat loss, though ("do lots of cardio!" "don't do cardio!" "lift weights!" "lift weights AND do cardio!" "it's all about your diet!" "take these sketchy pills!"), and I don't know if I'm just "doing it wrong" or if I'm being too impatient or what.

I have severe insomnia, so I'm often awake like 22 hours of the day, have no energy a lot of the time, and am constantly hungry. I feel like utter shit about my body and can't even stand looking at myself. I went to a clothing store for the first time in months yesterday, and I was just horrified by what I saw in the changing room mirror. I feel like I've ruined my body for good and it's really discouraging. I have a lot of stretch marks from puberty, and, even after like 13-ish years, they look like shit, and I also have some gross scars, so even if I lose weight, my body is never going to be nice to look at.

You're probably just being impatient. When you're at a healthy weight and just trying to lose a few lbs, it takes ages to come off. I'm like at my last 20/25lbs to lose and at the rate I'm going I'm only losing a few lbs a month.

If you're scared of exercising in public, find an exercise that you can do at home, that's what I did and it really helped.

Everyone has stretch marks, anon. I have them. Part of the motivation for me to lose weight were some really big dark ugly ones that appeared one day around my belly button, so I know how you feel.

if you're an insomniac and don't want to do anything about the sleep shit, then i suggest joining a 24hr gym and going between 11pm and 5am. it's what i do, and there are usually MAYBE two other people there, and they're minding their own business. or try joining a women's only gym? i used to be hesitant about exercising in front of men and serious people in general, and in the women's gyms, most are old, doing very very light stuff, or overweight.

and everyone has stretch marks. in high school, i slowly went from 80lbs to 95lbs and grew like an inch, and i STILL got stretch marks from such a slow progression. i don't really care about them since they're just on my hips and always hidden by clothing. try dermarolling, though.

i would try fixing the insomnia first, though. when i`m having a good few weeks of sleep, i tend to loose a couple of lbs, since i`m spending less hours starving and eating. no joke. this summer, i only worked evenings, so i would wake up at 1pm and go to bed around 4am. as soon as i started working mornings, i started having trouble with my appetite.

Thanks anons. I try not to care about the stretch marks, and they didn't really bother me when I felt okay about my weight, but now that I feel flabby, they're really getting to me.

As soon as the insomnia started, I started gaining weight. I have spent many months now trying to sort out my sleep, and it's just not getting any better. I hoped that exercising more would = more tired = more sleep, but no. I'm getting really tempted to join a gym, despite how uncomfortable I feel about it. It's stupid to let the weight I'm embarrassed of and want to lose get in the way of me losing the weight. Or I might give some more at-home shit a try first.

I just wish I could speed up this process without starving myself, but I guess just about everyone who's trying to lose weight probably feels that way.

So, I'm 23, I'm living by myself, and I've been dealing with my weight for the last 15 years. And I feel like sharing my thoughts, I write them out every day anyway, and this web site seems like a good place to put them. I don't want a "sympathetic" ear, that's ONLY what I get in food-related forums and newsgroups, and from "friends" and family. I don't have a "problem," it's a life-style, it's a method. And somehow, it's just too exotic or distasteful or SOMETHING to just talk about. So here, kind of anonymous, I am.

Yesterday, I went 43 hours without food. Only coffee, cigarettes, and Tropicana Grovestand Orange Juice. I wasn't hungry at all…see, food calls to food. When you don't eat for 20 plus hours, you don't NEED food. It's when you start swallowing solids that you need more.

Yes, I AM proud of my lack of need. Because, I can SEE it now, I can see how what's considered "typical" is EXCESSIVE. I see people continually opening their refrigerators, again and again, looking with a hunger that has nothing to do with food. They are forever rooted in this pattern, this ridiculous circuit, up from the chair to the refrigerator to the table, then again, chair and refridgerator and table, etc.

43 hours, then this morning, at my mother's house, a bagel and cream cheese, she kind of forced me, and I just fell into the table routine, I still wasn't hungry, and I just ate it. And later, on my bed, I felt the stone of it in my stomach, it weakened me, I had this momentum, this living off the burn of my own body, and then this shit inside me. But, my digestion is fast - after 2 cups of coffee, I'm a tube of toothpaste, I squeezed it out in one spurt. I looked in the bowl, I always check to see that it's ALL out, and…it was clear, like a squirt of hair gel. I kind of splashed around the water, frantic, a terror in me, and then, the reassuring brown again. Long tubes are nice, it's my digestion re-carving me hollow.

And that's this afternoon. There's more, and later, I'll send it.
Like, lately, I've been "feeding" pot to my bong with a plastic spoon.

Deke is always asking me for pictures, so I'll take some more, soon. My body's look is my work, I don't mind sharing it.

I like to lose weight, but I know there is a threshold, like anything, like doing cocaine, you have to KNOW where the peak is, and STAY there. You don't try to keep getting higher, because you simply can't; PAST that peak is only downhill. If you know yourself, then nothing is dangerous.

So here's what works for me:
- hot liquids. Drink a cup of hot liquid before eating anything at each meal. Broth can be salty, but it's really filling. You can find low-salt broth but personally I have low blood pressure anyway, so I need the salt. Tea is great too. I prefer really strong teas: lapsang souchang is a great smoky tea that is so filling. It's almost like you've eaten soup.
- Try eating more soup - it will fill you up faster than solids.
- Brush your teeth after eating, or chew gum / eat a strong mint.
- Make sure you get some healthy fats, or you'll be hungry no matter what you eat.
- Don't completely deprive yourself. Go to the bakery and buy one small cookie, one petit-four, or something like that when you are craving sweets. High-quality food will taste better and satisfy you more than processed garbage in huge quantities. I keep a bar of chocolate around but only allow a couple squares per day. It actually works. (Keep it in the fridge)
- Same goes for cheese. You want cheese? Buy a small block of good cheese. Allow yourself to really enjoy it in thin slices. Put it away when you are no longer crazy over every bite. This really worked for me when I lived in the UK (I thought I was just going to eat cheese endlessly but it didn't happen.)
- Sugar-free candies are OK in small amounts.
- Know yourself. If you are never hungry at breakfast, it is a bit stupid to try to follow a diet plan that involves a huge breakfast (whenever I eat a moderate-large breakfast, I'm hungry the rest of the day). If you need breakfast to get going in the morning, then eat it. Don't fight your natural urges in this way - it doesn't work. You can edit your habits but everyone is wired differently and a breakfast-hater rarely becomes a breakfast-lover (or vice versa).

I'll add more if I think of it later. Protein is something I struggle with, so maybe someone has something to say about that.

>protein
i used to have a huge problem with protein. tried protein bars, but they just made me crave candy. i love the dannon light and fit greek yogurt. 12g of protein for 80 calories. i eat two a day generally. jerky (like beef jerky or turkey jerky) once in a while helps a lot with protein. i started eating canned tuna, and that has a lot of protein for the amount of calories. some cheese has a lot of protein. also egg whites! an egg white omelette with spinach and a slice of cheese is quite good. then follow that with some yogurt.
>small sweets
this! every day, i get one of the mini reeses cups that they have loose at wawa. they're 44 calories, and you only need to buy one. that's my candy for the day.
>cheese
low-fat string cheese helps since it's prepackaged. i'm finding that controlling my cheese urges or whatever is best with crumbled cheese.

i am also hungry the whole day if i eat a big breakfast. at most, i can do an apple and then still control my appetite for the day

Questions about MyFitnessPal since I just started using it again:

>Is it actually bad to not eat the required amount of calories? As in you consume, say 500-800 when your goal is 1,200?

>Is it okay to eat something unhealthy (brownie, something fried, ect.) as long as you don't go over your calorie goal?

No. 161976

>>161975
You should aim for 1,200 calories but if you eat a little over or a little under sometimes it's fine. It's okay to eat something unhealthy and stay at your calorie goal – you're still going to lose weight. Just keep in mind you won't get as much energy from that as something more nutritious so you may get hungrier faster.

I aim for 1000 calories on myfitnesspal since I usually eat about 100-400 calories over goal. When I wake up in the morning, I actually put a "misc 300 calorie" entry with 0 nutrients on breakfast. It puts my remaining calories lower for the day. Even though I know I'm doing it to fool myself, it has worked, and I've done 1000 calories on days that I don't work out. On days I work out, I allow myself to go up to 1300.

Also, it's fine to eat something unhealthy as long as you stay within goal. As >>161976 said, you will still lose weight. If you are exercising, I'd make sure you're getting enough carbs and protein, but if you're pretty sedentary, monitoring calories is okay. Not recommended, but it's okay.

>I just assumed an EC stack would boost my results


It will be you have to consider at what cost. I hope this doesn't patronising but I guess a good way to explain it would be to use the laws of energy in/energy out or equal exchange.

By forcing your heart to perform at levels it's naturally unaccustomed to and at an irregular rate, sure you're getting the increased performance, but at what cost? Something cannot come from nothing, and that increased performance is effectively at the cost of your heart's lifespan/overall health.
When you're experiencing shakes/irregular beats/palpitations, that is basically your heart saying "either you stop or I'm going to stop". The palpitations are caused by the EC stack forcing it to perform beyond it's regular capacity and then your heart begins beating out of step and then, if you're unlucky, it stops.

At any rate I'm actually relieved one person has read this even if you don't end up taking it to heart (no pun intended). Knowledge is power etc. etc.

Thanksgiving is approaching and I wanted to lose weight beforehand, since I'm having guests this year.

I went from eating breakfast, lunch and multiple snacks to just lunch and maybe a snack. After not shoving food down my throat and drinking more water, I find I'm rarely hungry anymore. Before I go to bed my stomach growls, or when lunch is approaching. If I dare to eat a snack right after lunch, I feel sick to my stomach whereas before I could eat a large lunch then followed by a snack that still left me hungry afterwards. My stomach is getting smaller, my double chin is gone and a ring that couldn't get past the middle knuckle on my index finger fits perfectly now. Seeing little changes like this feels great.

I've been losing tonnes of weight while being as full as a pig every day. I basically drink soup all day long. It gets a bit boring, but that discourages me from having an unhealthy attitude to food- I accept it as a source of fuel, I eat to live and don't live to eat…And treats are all the more special because of it-

I use vegetable stock cubes and whatever veg are on sale in the shop. Spices, croutons, whatever else strikes my fancy too.

I put it into a water bottle kind of thing, and sip it throughout the day. I end up eating only one non soup meal a day most days.

Planned fasting as part of a healthy diet is fine.

Fasting for 2 days as punishment after eating a pizza isn't going to do anything, it's just going to make you hungry, binge, and resent yourself. Think about how bad you feel right now and don't do it again. Make healthier decisions next time you're in that situation. That pizza might have been 3000 calories but eating that much ONCE isn't going to do very much.

Why would it make me binge? I'm used to fasting for way longer than that, longest being… fuck, like, 12 days? That was an extreme case though.

If I continue to eat for two days all that pizza is going to get stored as surplus fat, but if I don't then every unit of energy and a bit more all be consumed for energy.

2 days is nothing; it's a blink of an eye.

I just downloaded myfitnesspal onto my phone to keep track of what I eat, partly out of curiosity and partly so I hopefully won't overeat my weight into oblivion. My daily intake is supposed to be 1,400 but I really want to get myself down to about 1,200 a day since I'm pretty sedetary and have been slacking on the gym. Even my regular eating habits, it seems like I eat an average of about 1,500 to about 1,700 calories a day and it makes me feel like total shit.

:( A large part of it comes from snacks it looks like, what could I do to curb it (inb4 just stop stuffing your face with snacks) or what are good low calories snacks to replace them with (no shitty 100 calorie shit pls). Also what's a good amount of calories for each meal? Should I consider appetite suppresents?

That isn't how it works unless you literally continue to consume a whole pizza every day.

>2 days without food should be a disciplined reminder not to fuck up and let my gluttony take over next time.


You're ignoring the part where I told you that fasting as punishment is unhealthy and not going to do anything. It's an incredibly unhealthy relationship to have with food.

Instead of thinking "I had to starve myself for 2 days because of that pizza last time!!! (even though it's apparently no problem for me since I have fasted for 12 days before and thus not even a good punishment lmao)" you should just think "I felt like shit and that I consumed too much when I ate that whole pizza, it didn't do anything for me, I didn't enjoy it, so I'm not going to eat like that ever again." And then just don't do it again.

How long have you been going to the gym? What kind of machines do you use? Do you have a trainer/look at at tutorials?

You should look into getting some dumbbells for home use, but at 211lbs (you're >>162014 right) the gym is probably less of a priority than getting your eating habits down to a healthy level. And I don't just mean overeating, but the whole guilt thing is bad for you too, and will lead you to binging even more. It's a vicious cycle.

You might not be bulimic, but you do have unhealthy eating patterns and behaviours that need to be rectified if you really want to get healthy. It's cliche but read the /fit/ sticky on 4chan and/or 8chan, it'll help you lots

I'm very petite and I'm at average weight for my height actually lol.

I've sort of just… lost that motivation to go to the gym. Even when I stopped feeling excited and wanted to not go to the gym for the first two months, I could muster up enough to get up and go down there but now… I'm not even busy with schoolwork, I just rarely go. Maybe 1-2x a week now. I feel like my depression is getting worse and maybe that's also why I've lost the ability to care enough to go lol (yet I'm as self conscious with my eating as ever).

I recently started medication that's been fucking with my eating habits. Normally I eat whenever I'm hungry, and whenever I feel is appropriate. I constantly think about eating and snacking, but keep track of my calories so I don't go /too/ over. With medication, it's become a lot harder for me to eat. I feel like I can only eat when I'm hungry, and if I wait too long and the hunger passes, I can't bring myself to eat until I'm hungry again. The thought of eating when I'm not hungry makes me feel sick. This really wouldn't be a problem but I'm barely reaching 1200 calories a day now. Would it be better to eat smaller, yet more calorie dense foods in order to meet my daily calorie goal? I'm already at a average/a little under average weight for my height, so weight loss isn't really something I'm looking for.

Sorry to ressurect this thread, but I'm having problems, anons.

I know you're going to tell me "you can't do targeted weight loss," "eat less fatass," and "calories in < calories out." I truly do know this. I am eating less and better, I only drink water (and lots of it,) and finally I go jogging every morning.

I'm actually here to ask a question, and see if anyone else has had problems with the same thing. You see, my upper arms are gigantic compared to the rest of me. I'm 5' 4", 34-26-35, 105 pounds. (Inb4 disgusting fatty pig REEEEEEEE) so I'm average, on the heavier side of average for you skellys. But my biceps are fucking 13 inches around. The same as my goddamn neck. It's extremely embarrassing. I can't even wear short sleeves because my arms betray how disgustingly fat I am.

I know, I know. I just have to eat less. I also have to exercise more. I'm not stupid. But all I'm asking is, has anyone else encountered this problem before? I have fucking Suzy arms, but I weigh at least 60 pounds less than her. Have you been able to fix it? What do you do?

If you want to ridicule me and make fun of me, it's okay. I've already told myself worse. Sorry if this is 32 inch waist chan of me, but I'm really struggling here.

No. 162067

Sounds like you are apple shaped, since you gain weight on the top portion faster then the bottom portion of your body. You jog, wich is fine for cardio but do you do anything else? Jogging is necessarily the best option for fat loss not to mention, you should try to tone your body evenly as well. Try to incorporate some body weight exercises in addition to the cardio to help with that. Watching girls who exercise buy have clubby parts of their body is usually because they just hop on. A treadmill to burn calories which is a good start, but isn't the end all be all. I have to incorporate some upper body into my work outs more too, but that's because I enjoy squats too much. I just need to find the right dual movements for me.

That doesn't sound right, I thought apples were supposed to have skinny arms and legs, but like a big round apple in the middle? I have large thighs as well, so I think I'm more of a white girl rectangle than anything else.

I jog/run around the lake behind my place, but you're right that I may want to do some weight exercises. I just don't want to build any more bulk on my body. But it would be good to get less flabby.

No. 162069

You won't bulk muscle, not unless you're literally going for male hypertrophy exercise routines and even then it'll take a long while. My mom works in physical therapy, she's not skinny but her upper arms look great - not flabby, just toned and a nice shape even though they're not really thin. I'm telling you this because shaping up on top of weight loss can make a real difference in the upper arm area, and you'll look nice and toned far, far before you can get anything resembling bulk. So don't fear it.

Well self control is something you develop. Kinda like a muscle. Start small. Set yourself some easy challenges like "this week I'm going to eat only when my tummy rumbles!" Or "I'm not going to eat any junk food or sweets for the next 3 days!"

It helps to keep track of stuff like your weigt, thoughts, challenges, how lften you exercise etc. So get an app for your phone and start a food diary. I kept my food diary on the fridge. I just noted down the calories, not the foods. Have a sheet where you put a sticker on whenever you exercise and write down what exercise it was.

Once you've developed some self control you can take off the training wheels of calorie counting (if it's annoying) or whatever else you dislike…But mostly give yourself a break. Realise that you can't develop heroic self control from nothing, but with time you can grow it like a cute swole flower.

Hi, so I'm trying to get BACK into diet and exercise…

Last year, I did really well and lost 1.5 stone. Then late last year I came out of a really shitty break up and also lost a parent, and since then my diet yo-yoed.

I've put back on maybe 1/3rd of a stone, and seeing my progress from before I know I can keep going, but I don't know how to resume and I get cravings and comfort eat again. Nowhere near as bad as before my weight loss last year but still hard to cut.

Hi! Been trying to get back to the weight I used to be before I got my newer job. I'm 5'8" and currently around 185lbs. I used to weigh no less than 160 about two years ago.

The current job I have now is an office type job in a little guard shack. Can't move much due to having to watch the cameras and alarm system.
My previous job was in a restaurant, so there was no need to watch what to eat. Didn't like the work environment & didn't pay well.
Also, it's been harder on me because I have BDD, I don't realize I loose or gain weight until I weigh myself or if it's significant enough.

Now that spring is here (it's still freezing but SOMEDAY) I'm hoping to get back on track, exercise wise.
The thing that messes me up is the cold weather, especially when it just hurts your face and teeth. I need to move out to another state honestly lol I'm getting tired of it.

Overall, my diet is pretty healthy. I try to avoid sugar like the plague (due to other issues) and I make a majority of stuff at home. I barely have fast food, maybe once or twice a month.
I might try intermittent fasting sometime this week, hopefully it'll help with my snacking. I've also been thinking of making more smoothies with fiber and protein foods.

Fattychan here with 27.3 BMI, trying to lose the last 40 lbs of a major 55 lb weight gain over the past two years. I’ve been pushing myself to do a lot of HIIT routines and daily cardio sessions, but still don’t lose weight unless I quite literally starve myself. I’m talking less than 600 calories. If I eat over that, I just maintain my weight. I’m like 100% sure I’m not overestimating calories either because I track everything religiously and use measuring spoons/cups for everything I eat.

I’m an endomorph, and the thinnest I’ve been able to get was 19.0 BMI and that was by going full anachan not eating a crumb for weeks on end, which ended in a 6 month plateau before I finally gave up and started eating/gaining again.

tbh I think youre rather having issues with your body fat distributions. imho body fat amount is more important than weight.

eat more proteins overall and start running.

a BMI for women in their 20s is still nearly model-tier. And btw that woman in the image is also not just skinny, she is trained and toned af.

Im 125 at 5'0, not fat but i guess i would call it skinny fat, im definitely seeing some of the side effects from it though like my energy levels and looking weird in tight clothes

I lose a pound by shitting anon. Weigh yourself every 2 weeks at most and you'll see a couple pound difference for sure.
Make sure your body doesn't eat itself in order to keep the weight off. Also what others have said I always weigh more and feel bloated around my period

If you are eating 600kcal under your TDEE you should be losing just over a pound a week but like others have said, weight can fluctuate due to water retention etc. so if you have only been doing your new diet for a couple of weeks you may not be seeing the loss yet due to this.

Also make sure you're not overestimating how much calories you burn in a day or underestimating the amount of calories you're consuming.
