Any of you other gym fatties have this problem?
I think it's OP's imagination, maybe if you are a "big guy" people usually look at you but don't give a shit, cogratulations OP for the change and keep at it, don't focus on what others may or may not think about you, remember you are doing this for yourself and for a better and healthier life
>always see people looking at me
>not sure if laughing at me or smiling at me.
I smile and say hi to fatties at the gym to try and make them feel welcome, and most regular users respect that you're trying to improve yourself. It's pretty heartwarming than seeing a fattie dripping with sweat and knowing they're on the road to making it.
But 99% of people don't give a fuck about others at the gym.
Are you sure you're not imagining it? Sometimes I feel someone looking at me but when you look back they're just zoning out, like me. There aren't a lot of places you can look while doing repetitive exercise in a full gym.
Anyway, ignore it. You can make it brah.
You just stand out as a fatty at the gym, and in this case that's a good thing. That's how you're deviating from other fatties.
If you didn't do things differently from what other fat people did, you'd stay fat. You're making it brah.
You did this to yourself. It's not going to get better by not going to the gym. It's is going to get better if you go to the gym and lose the weight. go fat one, go be great.....
All in your head OP. People look at each other in the gym, mostly just looking around between sets or exercises. No one is judging you, and even if they were, no one would ever approach you about it.
But I recommend you think they are judging you and just keep working harder and harder until you are the one looking at them.
It doesn't matter that you did that to yourself in the first place: Know that what you do is much harder than what the rest of those fags face. It's on a wholly different level really. I know so many people who bragged about getting somewhat ripped after school. Going from the body most kids have with 17 after doing sports their whole adolescence to somewhat ripped is fucking nothing. What you do, that is a fucking challenge.

why even live?
primarily because i'm working out not only for health reasons, but for future occupation reasons. currently a disgusting POG, but going to probably transfer to assault diver or EOD/field ranger, so i'll have to amp up pretty hardcore.
same reason that i do bodyweight, since it's the most commonly used PT
Yup been there OP. I was 455lbs when I started. Currently 285ish. I still have a gut (where mahority of my weight is) but my face is much slimmer as is everything else. Went from 5xl shirts just fitting to swimming in most 2xl.
When I started, of course you get nasty looks. Its their "is this guy lost?" attitude becausebyou probably look like you belong in a McDonald's not a gym.
Just keep at it and keep losing.
>Tfw started wearing my hair different, dressing different, and carrying myself/walking different since weight loss.
>Little more confidence in everything I do.
>Catching a few girls from Uni classes looking at me and then looking away when I glance around the room. (slightly chubby chicks with cute faces sure but still 100% more attention than before)

>Always droppin hints about the 2 of us just chillin aside from group work
Too bad I'm too autistic with women due to my weight and never do a thing to further these.
Can't wait to get down to 220lbs. Maybe I can actually get a real 7/10 qt3.14
>and still not know what to do
chances are, they're looking at you and seeing the 30 lbs that vanished and are surprised you are one of the few that can actually develop self discipline and the work ethic of a fucking warrior.
keep at it. if you aint hungry you aint makin progress. if you aint hurtin you aint earnin, lets go baby we all gon make it.
>doing it for me, not them
hell yeah bro, youre definitely gonna make it. sometimes i stink omw to the gym, and instead of getting self conscious, i get on the treadmill next to the baddest bitch in there. she cuts her cardio time short and i keep going.
Nice senpai. This board needs more stories like that.
YOU NEVER GONNA MAKE IT FAT FUCK. LOOSE SKIN WILL ALWAYS BE THERE BECAUSE OF YOUR PATHETIC HABITS
1. Regular weight fluctuation. My girlfriend weighs 107 pounds in the mornings dehydrated and on an empty stomach. She could eat perfectly well so as to not exceed TDEE and be something like 116 pounds in the night.
2. You're overestimating how much you burnt and/or underestimating how much you ate.
this. i always overestimate my calorie intake
and my exercise time i always round it down,
like i do 25 minutes of jogging cardio, and i just put in 20 minutes into my TDEE tracker
>tfw when you weight 76.5kg in the morning and you think youve lost half a kg and then you weight yourself at night and its 77.3 :(
I think it's mostly in your head but if those assholes are honestly doing that to someone who is obviously trying to improve their lives then they can suck BBC in Hell.
Also keep up the good work.
I've been trying to eat <2400 cal per day and i've been doing like 90 curls, sit ups, and lifts of the dumbell over my head per day and i'm adding in pushups and stuff too. It's possible i've gone over <2400 but not by a significant amount.
for reference I am 19, 5'11" weigh about 190 and I'm just trying to get down to like 160
>move into apartment complex that has walking trails
>see obese black dude walking and sweating while having smoke on the balcony

bitch i eat 1,500 a bit more (never over 2000) cals a day and i do 20 mins of cardio, which is about 3km runs, and then go to gym for hour
(im the ex fatty that was 85kg and now am 77kg/76.5 in the morning) and im stuck at 77kg for some reason cant go down, but maybe its because i started going to the gym aside from running so maybe muscle (but ive only gone 4 days so i doubt it)
any help is appreciated
I don't think so. Most people guess my height is 6 even and I'm the tallest of my friend group but it's not uncommon to run into people taller than me so I like to think i'm on the shorter end of tall
i use myfitnesspal daily, and sometimes i go up to 1,700 but never more than that daily.
ive been stuck for about 2 or 3 weeks, which by this time i should be on 76.7 or .8
less than 1,500 -1,700 cals a day? really? ill see if i can cut down to 1,300 cals
I started at 140 kg with clothes on. As of a few weeks ago, I was 105 with no clothes. I've been sitting around there for a stupid long time, so I recently stepped up my eating game, aiming for a decently lean 85-90 kg come summer.
General rule of thumb is multiplying bodyweight in pounds by 10 for the amount of calories if you want to maintain that weight (if I remember correctly). Consider that your next milestone is 180 pounds (~1800); consider underestimating how much your exercise burns (like by estimating TDEE by BMR + sedentary exercise level + underestimation of exercise) and eat only as many additional calories as you underestimated you were burning (i.e. 200). Going for 1900-2000 a day is a safe bet to get you to 180 pounds at a steady rate.
if troll: piss of m8
if srs: muscle is more dense than fat. You'll weigh just as much but look smaller.
Take a skinnyfat dude at 5'11'' 185lb, and compare to a 6'3'' 185 middleweight fighter. Two extremes but the point remains.
Thats a good way to look at it. Im 6'even and among my friends and aroud my campus im perfectly average. Ive got good friends from 6'6" to 5'7" so withn an inch of 6' you cant really tell.
not a troll just a noob to fitness
I'll try about 1800 for the next week or so, I havent really been religiously counting them so that could explain it but for example I eat two servings of oatmeal for breakfast every day which is ~300 cal and sometimes will have a tuna sandwich or two which is around 400-500 for two i think.
I'm not *saying* you're doing this but I'm just assuming - you're either panting loudly like a dog and/or smell horrible. If you're being disruptive, then they probably are judging you with standard fate hate . Or maybe you're as quiet as a mouse and your gym hates fat people. I dunno.
although my stomach has been looking smaller by a marginal amount. it doesnt really hang over my pants as much when i stand up but it still looks huge when I sit down and my arms are a little less flabby I guess it's a step in the right direction but i still hate my body
I'm a woman and I don't look at obese or fat people with a bad eye. Seriously, I got respect for everyone who takes their ass to the gym, especially for people like you who must struggle with it.
Keep up the good work. I'm pretty sure that most people are just wishing the best for you
Oh Im only 23 so the era of cameras everywhere was alive and well during my heaviest times.
Social gathering? i was in the corner with a plate with too much food
Family outing? I would always be the one taking the pic and then "forget" to let them get a pic of me.
I still do all this.
I seriously applaud any fatties who decide to make a lifestyle change
It honestly means that if you're healthier, I won't have to pay for your medical shit later on in life if you stay fat
Is this true?
I'm a 17yo fattie who's always been a fatty & struggled with confidence blah blah, same old story. I started being one of those body confident fatties you see on tumblr not too long ago but I just had my first 'sport night' with the cadets and I came to the realisation I am so unfit.
I've been scared of going to the gym ever since I was scared of doing PE in Primary school. I tried to stick at home exercise sbut I eventually just kept cheating out of it (I also fell ill; not weight related).
Would I really be accepted at a gym?
Even in the small village I live in?
I'm really nervous but seeing you comment gave me hope, anon.
Trust me I know. Recently for some reason, I've a huge fear of dying alone because my weight holding me back from approaching people and Im only 23.
Im not lifting for anyone in particular but I don't want to die alone /fit/. Just want someone, anyone who would be happy with me.
>Would I really be accepted at a gym?
Everyone in a gym is there for themselves and don't have time to waste on making other people's lives harder.
You might get some people watch you for a bit as you're a new face, but I can guarantee that there will already be fatties at any gym, it's not weird and frankly its the best place for them to be.
Gyms are for everyone, and as a paying customer you have as much right to be there as anyone.
Go get fit, anon, and show us that falling into the fat acceptance crowd isn't the end game for fatties.
Go make it.
Lol you're looking too far into the future. No screaming shit machines for me Thanks.
And no way in hell would I be OK with my woman getting huge after all the shit I went/am going through to lose all my weight.
I love chubbyish girls but when her slight chub becomes roll(s) Ill be sure to tell her.
>have six pack and ripped chest and getting to pound a chubby girl with a phat ass, minimum C cup tits (prefer double Ds) on the daily? Thats the dream.
Ima fake it till i make it
I'm not a huge fatty, only just in the "plus size" clothing section and under it in some clothes but I put on looaads over christmas and it just worries me. I kinda wanna be stong in the "stronger than they look" way so I'm not too bothered about losing weight beyond the belly and bingo wings.
I'm still just kinda scared.
Even if the gym is a free gym in a rough area?
I'm so scared, and I don't really get scared easily.
I really appreciate your comment, it makes me feel much better.
But it's just still out of my comfort zone, I think.
Are there many exercises you can do at home that are equal to the ones you could do at a gym?
I have an exercise mat from when I did Judo & 3 sets of weights weighting 1KG, 3KG and 5KG.
Please just give this noob here some tips, haha.
>Currently fucking qt3.14 genius Chinese girl.
>43kg, tiny waist, erector spinae hot as fucking
>Insists she used to be fat.
Sure babe, rich Chinese-girl fat is like 49kg.
>Shows me a photo of her at 67kg - more than 150% of current fit weight.
>Realise holy shit, I'm fucking an ex fattie.
>Realise holy shit, 67kg is waaaay below white girl average
And that's how I learnt to welcome our new Chinese overlords.
Is it true Chinese girls taste like soy sauce?
I was doing some research today for a uni assignment, the list of problems that are caused by obesity is absolutely massive, but one thing stood out to me, as its usually buried under a deluge of serious medical conditions, or more pressing related conditions.
A paper written in 1981, before the global obesity rate skyrocketed, which talked about the general repository problems caused by obesity.
Being so fat, that it impedes diaphragm movement so much, that you are unable to breath properly.
Not being out of breath because you are shifting a huge amount of extra poundage every time you move a limb, but because you body is choking itself in visceral fat.
Better life is a huge understatement.
Congratulations on your loss, anon.
It's a weird grey area and even Louis ck has talked about it. The kid is awesome and my best friend. But looking back I regret everything leading up to it. The ambiguity of it keeps me up at night
Forgot to mention that many women, not all but many, don't have the drive to stay in shape. Fps and fph are dominated by women for a reason. So a slightly chubby one, which I would fuck mercilessly, will very likely and easily become an avalanche of back tits and HAES
This is a sad reality I know. At which point if I cant get them to stop that progression from chubby to huge, im gone. Like I said I LOVE chubby girls but if she cant give the tiniest of effort to stay just that, chubby and not fat fuck mode, i walk.
It would literally only take 1-2 days of exercise and calorie minded eating a week to keep a chubby girl in that mode.
The /fit/ body fat % versus muscle weight is posted every now and then and builtfat is really more of a meme. Builtfat is like a construction worker who lifts heavy shit all day and is really strong otherwise but has a steady diet of high calorie garbage
Sounds like fun actually. Except shitty food = shitty health. It's also bad for my illness so I try to eat healthy
but I snack waaay too much.
Home exercise combined with a better, low calorie diet... is that any better?
Push yourself out of your comfort zone in as many ways possible. Getting /fit/ doesn't just mean hitting the gym on the daily. Try new dishes, if you can't cook teach yourself!
If you still don't feel comfortable at the gym, buy dumbbells or a barbell and the assorted weights and use them at home to do squats, bench presses, deadlifts, etc.
If you feel it is too much of a risk (IE gym has a bad reputation, or is a hangout for gangs) then wait until you can save up for a gym membership somewhere else.
A gym isn't always a necessity.
I know a guy who does nothing but running, and got in shape after a heart attack. Never steps foot inside gyms.
My father stays fit by cycling and walking.
Bodyweight routines can be done pretty much anywhere you have space. Lifting is superior, but it can do in a pinch. There's lots of stuff online about how to progress to harder exercises using minimal equipment.
Other than that, read sticky, fix diet, pick non-fad exercise plan, stick with it, lose weight. It really is that simple.
Snacking a major way fatties overeat. It's not just their massive meals, the constant grazing adds innumerable calories. So yes, a healthier diet and a bodyweight routine is perfect. Calories in, calories out is a very real thing no matter what HAES activists try to tell themselves
Yeah, people also yell at you from their cars. I used to run without ear buds before
I'm 50lbs down but still keep ear buds in
At the gym everybody that I see smiles at me
Keep going OP, people will always have something to say. Focus on your fitness goals because at the end of the day its your life and the quality of life you'll have.

How angry would the fat acceptance lot get if we collected every green text fat loss story we could get on /fit/ which says how much happier they are thing, and how much being fat hurt them, then posted every single one of them at the same time on every social media platform available, using their hashtags?
I know most of them will scream and claim its all lies even with progress pictures or even medical reports, but it would probably cause some less brainwashed to realise it can be done, and it is worth it.
That would be good. The thing is I don't endorse fat shaming either. I was fat all my life before I started losing weight. I could've lost it when I was 16/17 but I was bullied and made to feel like dogshit so I barely left the house because there would ALWAYS be one guy on the other side of the street who would shout something at me. So I didn't start losing until I was 22. I had so much fucking anxiety going into the gym for the first time. I'll forever hate those scumbags.
They would of course claim they're all lies, photoshopped, and if they're real, the people in the "after" pcitures must now have an unhealthy obsession with the gym.
I was the 455lb anon who posted earlier. I lost my 155lbs by dieting. No gym or activity other than my job and just watching what I ate. Gym obsession my ass.
I lost years of my life afraid of gyms because I was too fat. When I started lifting, I realised no one gives a fuck, it's actually nice to see people making progress. Better a fat inside a gym than inside a Mc Donald's.
At that age I ways on the football team. Was always chubby but because of football practice and lifting required, I was a 16 yo 6'2" 260lb built fat. Used to always get insulted by a team mate. He was 18, same height, but maybe 210 and admittedly ripped. They were never joking insults either. This guy genuinely did not like me for some reason. Put up with his shit for 4 months because feared getting kicked off team if I started anything. Anyhow it reached boiling point
>Walking home from practice
>Douche and his buddy are talking with another group of team mates.

>Insults getting worse as he is trying to impress the others
>Doing my best to ignore him. Eyes averted, staring straight ahead but I'm heated.
>As he steps in front of me to physically stop me, I swing as hard as I could into his face.
>Hear a crunch he goes down.
>As he is rolling on the ground with (what I was told later a broken nose) I put a knee on his chest to keep him from moving
>Start swinging like mad into his ribs.
>I mean hard hitting you can hear the thumps hits.
>His friend just staring open mouthed
>Not a single person there lifted a finger to help him or pull me off.
>I went home treated my now bruised and bleeding hand, and expected a visit / call from the police or coach saying I'm off the team. >None came. Douche was absent for the next 2 days.
PWhen he came back in he had 2 black eyes from the broken nose, and I had fractured one of his ribs when pummeling him.
>He never looked at me or talked to me again
>His buddy did the same
>Douche told everyone who wasn't there that day that he was mugged
Lesson? Don't take shit from anyone. Not saying to beat the shit out of everyone, just learn to ignore it and you continue doing you.
Thanks to both of you anons,
I'm gonna look into the things suggested and start with the ones I can do immediately. You really did make me feel less stressed about the whole exercise thing.
Thank you lots, I hope you both have a wonderful day!
I'd never heard of HAES until today, actually.
But yea what you're saying is encorporated into my plan now.
Cutting out snacking has been so hard for me. Didn't realise how much of a fatty I am until reading this lmao
so Inspired now thanks to /fit/ anons
>Yeah, people also yell at you from their cars.
Jesus that happened to me, too. I can't believe that's a common thing that happens. I was 14 at the time and trying to walk home from school to lose weight.
Wrecked my shit since I'm a girl and it was adult men doing this.
2. Go to http://whatwillilooklike.com/# and put in the weight you want to be. Then save that picture, put it has your screen saver, put it somewhere you'll see it all the time and remember that that person exists inside of you.
3.. You're 17, get some self-confidence, the gym really helps. Going to first time is honestly the hardest part but you'll quickly realize no one there gives a fuck about you, they're all there for themselves. At most you'll get a sideways glance but at least for me seeing an unfit person I just think "good for them".
Yeah its out of your comfort zone but anything worthwhile, getting fit, girls, etc will be. As cliche as that sounds its the honest truth. To get even more cliche its 100% true that the more you get out of your comfort zone the easier it gets.
Go to the gym, headphones on, world off, and just do your shit. Prove everyone that looks at you and thinks you're not going to stick with it wrong. There's a fit, confident person inside of you anon, and I'm not just saying that, every single person has that. Not everyone has the willpower to chisel that out, that's what makes great people great.
Lastly "Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today."
Sounds like you are making it friend
>fellow /fat/bro here
>At least 390+ this past spring
>Start counting calories, exercising regularly, cut out major red flags from diet (snack food, most frozen shit), switch to drinking water/black coffee only
>tfw lost over 40 lbs in ~6 months, and have since ramped up exercise even more cuz I started going to a local neighborhood gym
My dick gets so hard thinking about all the weight I lost and every little thing that changed about me over time. Narcissistic? Maybe. But God dammit not feeling like shit every morning like a fried chicken and snickers hang over and having the energy to lift makes me feel better than any cheese burger slow death ever did
I went into the gym so scared I'd be laughed at when I couldn't even lift 10 pounds, couldn't go for a light jog on the treadmill for more than a minute without being out of breath. Nobody stares, nobody says anything and I saw some guys in even worse shape than I was who were way weaker.
Everyone is going in there to improve nobody started their first day at the gym lifting huge weights or with rock hard abs. The gym is probably the least judgmental place I've ever been 99% of guys mind their own business but eventually you're going to catch a glimpse of someone taking a peak at you when you start to improve.
Went from sub human 280lb obese cow to strongfat and high test, there was no ignore phase. All the little subtle reactions in body language, disgust, confusion, anger, competition, lust... and then they just watch you from the corner of their eye for their whole workouts. It delights me in a really sick way.
It definitely feels better, that is for sure.
I think my greatest pleasure so far has just been seeing the visible available space in pants.
still a long way to go for me, but I have some short goals I plan to hit which are keeping me going.
Going below 300 again is my first (aiming for around late march/early april)
After that, I plan to start setting more similar goals until....whenever.
This is what I want anon, I'm not a resolutioner, wanting to lift weights for a few months but its taken me a couple month to get the money for dumbbells because all the gyms in my area are like $40 a week.
Im 21yrs 6foot 146kg but I used to do martial arts in highschool and used to be hot. After highschool, couldn't get a job and so went full depression, anxiety eating for like 5 years.
Tried on some jeans a few months ago, nothing in my size (size 44 jeans) and I'm like fuck it, so I wannna slim down 6 inches in the hips and then just keep on fucking going. Been lifting for 2 weeks at home, 500 cal deficit, girlfriends supportive as, doing the calorie deficit and weights with me. Im not going back to being a fat unfit fuck, since I know how good I used to look.
Im gonna make it, and stories like yours make me think that this isn't all a naive fantasy.
Better save up some money for that surgery breh
>be fat fuck
>as woman to use her phone (mine died)
>she gives me this look like I just asked if I could bend her over and fuck her raw right there on the sidewalk
Got a question for you former fatties. Did you see a spike in confidence after you lost the weight?
I lost 80 pounds (230 lbs to 150) and I still have zero confidence. Used to rely on alcohol to socialize but I quit drinking and don't know how to talk to people.
I just started my cut officially on Sunday, so far it's going really well. I've been eating at my deficit.
I'm just really proud because before I was binge drinking every night, and I've only had one night of drinking so far and I was still in my calorie range.
>inb4 le blog meme
We're all gonna make it brehs
Not married, nor will we ever be. But we live and rent a shit apartment together because I wanted to try to make it work for the kids sake. Now I don't care and consider cheating to be a valid option
I did but I also never had a problem talking to people. Once I stop being a fat piece of shit I cared even less. I guess for me it was not a confidence issue personal issue of whether or not I gave a fuck. Turns out I never said, and being then just turn me into a glorified shitlord
If 10lb weights weren't meant to be used, they wouldn't have them. They're not just rack warmers.
it doesn't matter what you lift, as long as you are making progress with it, and if you are you'll not be on 10lb for long.
The older you get, and the fatter you get, the more of a problem this becomes, as your skin loses elasticity.
My friend went from fat enough to get stuck in a submarine hatch to sub-20% bf when he was still a teen, and didn't have too much sagging.
Older you become before you make that change, the more chance you'll need a nip and tuck.
Don't let things like this get you down. Getting fit will not only boost your confidence more than it already is but it can even help alleviate any symptoms stemming from your illness.
This probably won't mean much coming from an anon but I really do wish you the best
>be almost 270 lbs ham
>decide I'm too fat to exist in this physical form
>go to gym with dad
>lose 50+ pounds
>get looks from people at the gym (I'm about 5'8 and 215 pounds) sometimes
>feel bad on the treadmill but I can't go more than 5 inclination and 5 speed else I'll be done in 1 minute
>rather spend 40 minutes on the treadmill on those settings than run and destroy my joints
I may be a whale but at least I don't sit on my phone during gym so that makes me less miserable.
>always see people looking at me
I have two friends, one is a fatty and the other is a skelly. Both gave up on their gyms because they said that everyone was looking at them. After talking to them, it was clear that they were just insecure and paranoid.
People at gyms most of the time are only looking at themselves. So should you. Concentrate on your workout and stop worrying about the rest.
>see fattie at gym
>am fit as fuck
>makes me smile
I'm generally shy and scared of confrontation, but I feel if someone insulted a fat guy at a gym I'd stand up to him right there.
You really shouldn't give a shit about women anon, I'm handsome as fuck and they still get disgusted by me because I don't stare/hit on them at the gym. Women are absolute cancer, do not care about them in the gym.
Oh and also OP, gyms attract the worst kind of assholes. Here's an example of mine:
>fat but huge arab who lifts way more than he should for 1 or 2 reps and makes loud sounds after which he looks around in disgust like we're all weaker or looks really aggressive and angry if you lift as much as him
>small arabish dude who is fit but weak and look at less fit people like they shouldn't be there
>two turks wearing tight tanktops that will take 5 machines/bars/dumbells/whatever at the same time for 1 exercise and get frustrated if someone else is taking shit they need
All in all, you have to avoid paying attention to these sorts of people. Unfortunately gyms attract normal people AND the lowest scum on the planet.
Fuck arabs man. There's some at mine that take every weight that somebody isn't using as they get their and take them all over to their favourite smith machine. I've never seen them do a lift that isn't bench press and they won't give you any of the weights because they need them.
It pisses me off so much, they take all the pl8s but end up using two 10kg weights instead of one 20 so the bar has more individual weights on it. They use 2 5s for 10kg etc it's the most retarded thing i've seen
