    I'm stuck, 173 lbs. Can't seem to make any headway.

    Have you recalculated everything using your current stats? This way you can adjust accordingly?

    I'm currently using a nutritionist.. I'm following his lead at this time. We'll be discussing lowering my carbs this week.

    Here are my current macros:
    BFast - 35P 60C 20F
    snack - 28F 45C 10F
    Lunch - 35P 60C 15F
    snack - 28P 45C 10F
    Dinner - 35P 60C 15F
    snack - 35P 30C 5F



  • Checking in as well. I haven't lost a single pound. That being said I have been doing CrossFit for over a year and I have added 40lbs to almost every lift, I can comfortably run a mile unbroken, and I feel great. Take your wins where they come. Now I'm on to conquering pull ups and jump rope double unders.

    This is why I titled the thread fitness and weightloss. Not just weightloss.

    I'm way up on push-ups since I started. Starting was 18 in a minute. Now it's around 44 in a min.
    Mile time started at 8:35, currently 6:34.

    Need to add pullups, and others to the routine.



  • Alright. You've all inspired me to quit the "hold steady" phase and make another move downward......:)



  • Down 35lbs now.



  • I'm firmly back into the 270s. Am 276 now 😃



  • Started swimming. Got a membership at the local city pool. Really cheap and really nice facility. Started going yesterday.

    Down 13.2 kg (29.04 lbs) since April 17, 2019 (3.5 months).

    I did hit my 2 weeks under 100kg checkpoint in July and have not been in danger of going back.

    Yesterday (september 10) I was at 96.6kg again.

    I've been between 96.3kg and 97.6kg since the above screenshot.

    Time to make a change of some kind to push the body on.



  • Yeah, I've been stuck in a small range for weeks.

    I see a couple of workouts in your future - at SW.



  • I've been stuck for a couple weeks, too. I went away on 7 day vacation a few weeks ago and just haven't been able to get back in the working out groove. I've been maintaining my diet, though, so that's good. Still want to get down to 200 lbs.

    Thanks. Yeah, she totally hates me. She has lost about 15 pounds, though, so she's doing good too.

    She really hates it when we both do basically the same run on the treadmill and it says I burn twice as many calories lol Well, I do weigh twice as much as you... sooooo



  • Weighed in at the doctor the other day at 154 lbs ( 5 pounds more than the last time I was there)
    for being 5'8 my Dr. said that's an extremely healthy weight.

    I've started talking with a Nutritionist - she's put me on a "diet" ( i use loosely.) Nutrition Improvement system to teach me how to eat better and make it sustainable.

    the only thing she's given me is Macro Goals - Macro-nutrients are Protiens , Carbs, and Fats
    and my Goals are to hit a certain Number of grams per Macro a day. It doesn't matter what I eat (more or less) as long as I hit my Macros before I go to sleep at night, I'm good to go.

    Been working out 3 days a week still , mostly at home work outs though ( pullups, push ups, ab works outs) I have yet to join a gym but that may happen.

    My goal is to not add any weight and lose maybe 10 pounds and gain muscle.

    I call it nutrition instead of diet, then people understand that you're not on a short term thing or a fad thing.

    If you're gaining muscle, it's likely the scale won't change much for you... muscle weights a lot more than fat. The scale hasn't changed much for me in the past 6 months...

    Yes! Using different language for these things is helpful. You aren't on a diet. You are creating new eating habits. They don't all need to be about what you are eating either.

    I know I've said it in here before but the single most effective thing I did was to increase time for eating. A meal takes at least 20 mins. If you don't have 20 mins for a meal at least give yourself a 20 min. window before going back for seconds or a snack.



  • "On a diet" is bad. Improving your diet is good.

    I said Loosely , But i understand the point -

    Fixed it now.



  • I tried keto, but i just love carbs too dang much. I've cut back on carbs and increased my veggies and replaced sweets with fruit. (except on occasion I will eat a pastry, and it will take me two days to eat it)

    I lost 8lbs. i'm pretty happy and will continue my slow yet steady ways.

    And you'd be wrong because they are different. Diet is diet. What you regularly eat and drink is diet, period.

    When someone says diet, it doesn't necessarily imply a specific special intake of nitrition. It's all diet, even if you only consume twinkies, or eat regularly and nothing specific. It's a diet no matter what.



  • Did a 3km swim today.

    When someone says "I am going on a diet" which is more or less what was being discussed it does mean a particular plan of intake. It also frequently means a short term, unsustainable plan.

    It is helpful to think of nutritional intake changes outside the context of "going on a diet" because setting long term, sustainable changes is going to work out better.

    Exactly - and this is what people seem to understand much better when I say or talk about my nutrition, instead of my diet.

    The term diet, while accurate to describe literally what I'm eating - has basically been cooped by diet fads to the point where the masses hear 'diet' and assume you're on some short term plan with a likely goal of losing weight.

    Going on a diet literally tells me nothing, and forces me to assume everything. So when this happens, no matter the context, I comment.

    Hence why I never say that. I say - I've changed my nutrition.. which is true.. I've stopped eating all the shit, and try to concentrate on better foods.

    I could just as easily say I've changed my diet - but then I will get the - oh yeah? what diet are you trying out/doing?

    Perhaps you don't make any assumptions when I use a statement like mine (about nutrition) but most do. And they assume exactly what I mean - less sugar, less carbs (though they'd be over thinking that one aspect), etc.

    Is it correct that they assume that? yeah probably not.. but it's human nature.



  • Today is day two of quitting nicotine, and starting back on keto with IF simultaneously, FML.

    I did keto from Jan 2018 - Mar 2019, then took a 6 month break to see what it was like to eat complete shit again. I actually didn't gain anything back, but it's probably because of the IF.

    I've never actually been overweight (6' 2" - 200lbs, I just do keto to cut up a bit and to curb my GERD. It works the fastest of anything I've tried and it's sustainable long term. My blood work was perfect after over a year of keto with less than 20g of complex carbs daily. Plus I was able to cut like 15lbs fat without ever going to the gym. That was nice.

    Been able to control my nicotine cravings by drinking bubbly sparkling water all day. I also want to punch someone, and am having problems giving a damn about many things, but ultimately I enjoy the challenge.

    So that's my day...
