Ex-planet here. 6'4". Was 455lbs. Currently 296lbs.
Sometimes I just get a bad case of the "fuck-its" and just stuff my face like I used to. I keep falling off the diet wagon and weight stops or goes up. I got to as low as 278 via diet alone and idk, just started eating like shit again over some reason or another. Right back up to 296.
My goal is 230lbs. Ill get there eventually. I hope. My weight is the only thing truly holding me back from many things in life and I feel like my youth is/has been wasted.
>>35593740 >I feel like my youth is/has been wasted.
I remember feeling like that. Had a lot of anger against my parents, since i had been majorly overweight since being a toddler with no medical reason for it, completely destroyed my young life desu. They should have done better.
Though It helped me appreciate myself a lot more after I lost it and got fitter. I spend days just being incredibly happy that i'm just not a fat sack of shit anymore and i beat it. I dunno if people who have never had those problems think like that but it feels great.
I'm >>35593740. What was your weight loss like? My job is very physically active, and lifting a dedicated regiment makes my weight loss stall like no one's business. So focusing on primarily weight loss, I eat at a heavy calorie deficit.
I have stretch marks sure but not much excess skin to speak of. Do you have a lot of excess skin? Post a pic if you wouldn't mind. (n...no homo)
>>35593793 What kills me and makes me feel like hot fucking garbage is it is ALL my fault. My weight gain waa the result of using food as a stress reliever. I was a comfort eater that only got worse as time moved on and eventually, the weight itself made me eat more to feel better about my weight. Which made me gain, become depressed, and eat to make me less so. Repeat ad nauseum.
Only been at it since early november, and the holidays set me back, but I moved in with an aunt who's almost obnoxiously conscious about other people's eating habits and there's a gym down the block so I think I'll make progress.
My only goal so far is to lose enough to ride harry potter and the forbidden journey once it opens in LA, since I was too fat to ride it when I visited florida
Went from 260 to 204 then started eating a little above maintenance and started lifting. I'm back up to 224 but I have a lot more muscle. My goal is to be fit by my 30th birthday august 2017. I'm gonna make it we're all gonna make it
My weight loss was hard and erratic, the first year had the largest impact, think I lost 100 pounds. I had a skin reduction done on my lower torso last year and I'm having a reduction done on my upper torso next week. I can't take a pic now cuz I'm at work n don't want my loose skin flopping about in public lol. The hardest part was dieting but I had help with that since I had a gastric procedure done. If I ate too much I would physical get ill. Due to complications, the first couple months I was basically starving, living off protein shakes and pureed food. I think I lost 20 pounds in the first month. I did a shit ton of cardio n not so much lifting due to fear of injuring my stomach.
>>35594634 Ah ok. And its ok. Im at work too. My first 100lbs wwrre on the first year too. Are you an American? If so, how much were the surgeries? I didn't get any surgery st all for the weight loss, just didn't eat. Would eat maybe 500 calories every other day. Then joined a program called "Take Shape For Life". Learned proper eating habits etc. Currently eating 1k-1100 calories a day and losing about 2lb/week.
Regardless of how you got there good for you. Just pray you're not one one of the stupid fucks who gains it all back.
>move to new city for grad school >think I look okay but want to cut for aesthetics >get DEXA scan >find out I'm 30% bf, it's just been evenly distributed so I don't look COMPLETELY disgusting >day ruined >do the math, turns out I need to lose like 30 lbs >mfw
Oh well. At least having no friends is making it easy to hit my macros.
>>35594727 Not sure how much the surgeries were, my insurance covered them because my health was declining rapidly, I couldn't do any cardio due to knee injuries. I definitely won't become one of those idiots who just gain it back, working out has become part of my lifestyle, can't go without it lol. I usually eat between 1500-2k calories a day. But I'm in the gym 4-5 days a week. I just won't let myself become obese again, all the hard work I put in won't go to waste.
