Any former fatties here?
And I don't mean "Ooooh I dropped down to 10% bf and will start bulking tomorrow." fatties.
Or "I'm losing weight right now and it's going great" fatties.
I'm looking for people who used to be fat, are now lean and have kept the weight off for at least 2 years.
Cause my theory is that they don't exist.
Show yourselves ITT if you want to prove me wrong.
Go to Tumblr and you'll constantly hear about how diets don't work and how you're destined to fail. Its a defeatist mindset and I hate when people repeat it. Pic related is my progress, took about 3 years to do.
too be fair most people who are fat have little self control and love food. If you just make it drastic change to their diet they most likely wont succeed. Thats why the best diet is to eat the same shit just less of it.
I'm 5'7" and started out at 58% bf now I'm at 48%. Still fat but making progress.
Pic related, it's my expression when I look in the mirror.
>I'd say that's true for a lot of people but I became obese from stress and alcohol addiction.
>Im obese because I'm a weak minded/willed beta.
Dont blame externalities for your own failures.
People dont become obese from anything other than their own failure in life.
It is this that you have to recognize before you can actually make a REAL change.
Nope male, 48% is about 280 lbs.
Fuck off mods, I know you have me this verify on purpose
>dropped from 225 -> 155 with keto in 2013
>put on 20 pounds over the following years
>down 10 pounds from two months of cutting soda and fast food
Unfortunately I only started lifting a week ago so my body is still shit. LIFT WHEN YOU CUT MOTHERFUCKERS.
5'4" manlet here
>230lbs fat fuck in 2013
>130lbs after dieting for two years
>150lbs currently after intentionally bulking for the first time
Just started my first cutting period now until I get down to 120-130
People carrying 100 lbs of fat are already outliers who have been reinforcing extremely unhealthy habits throughout their life.
Of course it's difficult to get and keep healthy habits in that situation, and the statistics are going to bear that out. But ultimately, for each individual it's going to come down to a question of priorities, and if it's enough of a priority not to be fat then the person isn't going to get fat again.
I lost around 90lbs, became anorexic, went up to an average to below average weight, and I'm now building up a physique while staying lean, all over the course of around 9 years. Sure the statistics say that that isn't the norm, but who cares? Your life is your life, and you change which statistic you are if it's important enough to you.
When I was 9 yrs old all the way to 11 years old I was aboput 5'3 and 200-230lbs. Pretty sure tha'ts morbidly obese. Now I'm 167-182lbs and range 14-18% bodyfat if I don't pay attention to what I eat. Drop below 14% if I have a bit of discipline . I'm still a manlet but nearly 5'9, I actually contribute this a bit to eating frozen pizzas, ice cream and fast food burgers for the first 10 years of my life. Actually found online sources of healthy eating when I was 12 luckily, so I've had a good 6 years of being healthy (only weight trained the past 1 year) to get where I am.
Work out at least 12 hours a week including weights and aerobic exercise.
Me, I'm about the same as here. More cardiobunny these days because I love running.
went from BMI of 32 to BMI of 22 (and still dropping) but same as a few other people in this thread, i only started about a year and 6 months ago
the current photo is me bulking i was much leaner than that during the summer
Went from 315 lbs to 215 in 2009 (6'4"), then stabilized at around 240 once I started lifting. Got lazy after that, and got in and out of lifting. Furthest upward I strayed was 280 last year, but got it under control. 250 now, lifting consistently for a year. Pretty happy with everything, but I should probably be like 235.
Started at 250 dropped to 200 then stopped (broke up with ex starting going out more) then got my new gf (currently wife) and worked two jobs and dropped to 175 (moved out had no money for food). I slowly grew back up sittimg about 195-200 dont hate it was way to skinny at 175 everyone thought i was on drugs.
I used to weigh 225 when i was about 19. I decided to stop eating like a greasy fuck and started doing c25k. I lost 45 pounds pretty fucking quickly. I was mr.skeltal though so now, four years later i decided to start lifting.now i am 210 but look better than i did at 180. (6 foot 7)
I'm pretty sure that's just a fake tan for the show m9
took bout 2 years.
Just bulked again(still had a couple abs even when fattest), currently cutting(only for a couple weeks)
You guys proved me wrong. Congrats.
Do this thread again in 6 months and it will be me. I basically cut out soft drink and guesstimated calorie intake, but I have hit a plateau so I'm starting to track properly and am exercising more.
Yea. I used to have hips that were wider than my shoulders. Being 6'2" it looked weird as fuck.
3 months later on SS with homegym this is me. I still have a gut, can't really see in the pic, but I'll cut for the summer. I was never really obese just goodly overweight.
Hey /fit/ newfag fatass here
5,10 240lb tired of being miserable and fat, I want to be miserable and fit. I want to have a body like Zlatan but a bit more toned.
How to? Is P90X any good or is it just a meme?
It's fine for cardio but you're a fatty so I dont suggest it. Start lifting and eating less and if you want to do cardio just start with a hour walk a day and go from there. No need to go crazy with anything in the beginning just start slow and work your way up. Good luck bro.
Taken earlier this week
I'm skelly as fuck, but I'm working on it bros. I was bulimic for a while, 135 in 2013.
I was fat at age 15 from playing wow. redpilled myself got a gf and dropped 80lbs. became skelly then zyzz mode for 5 years. At 21 i gradually became fat again from alcohol, although the summer of age 21 i was about 9%bfp, then i got depressed and gained about 90lbs. Then i lost 50lbs. Now i am builtfat going into the army
Here's mine, nothing special.
>105kg to 88
About 1 and a half years lifting, first year was cardio and wasn't lifting.
haha, they do look a bit thin.
I squat 110 kg x 5
Good banter, i won't deny.
I have the Blaha body of peace, shits difficult when you have a barrel chest and long arms.
I started at 400 pounds, cut down to 215, wanted to get 5432 on my compound lifts and went up to 250. About to start cutting again, really pleased with my results in strength and determination in weight loss. I'm 6'2, it's been about 3.5 years since I was 400 pounds and yeah, I still struggle. My self control is terrible and I often cut entire foods out of my diet (processed sugary shit mostly, etc.) because I can lose control very easily. It's a two way street; on one side you know weight loss is possible, but on the other side you are tempted to binge a lot and your brain tries to tell you "Go ahead, you can just lose it again!". But it IS possible.
The nice part though is my legs. Being fat and doing cardio when fat makes your calves fucking huge. People compliment me on them a lot and ask me how to grow them out.
Also, warning: if you are going to lose 100+, expect any areas where you had a lot of fat to look like a raisin for a long time.
>210 lbs 5'5
>verge of suicide
>during cuts / maintenance, top 2 rows of abs visible
>tfw loose skin ;-;
No progress pictures, which I regret now. Strongest & healthiest I've ever been though. Shame that mentally I'm still rekt
>I'm looking for people who used to be fat, are now lean and have kept the weight off for at least 2 years.
I have no fatty pics available right now but I have dropped to 160 on May 2013 (lowest at 140 c.Oct 2014) and now at 160@5'8 (with more muscle mass.) I started at 240. Pic is May 2015 at 150. Don't have more recent pic on this device. As you can see my belly button should be enough proof of fatty origins.
I'll post fatty pics if this thread is still up in 8 hours.
Better loose skin than carrying around backpacks full of fat inside your body.
>lose that stupid ass-tan
>bodybuilders use tan and oil for competitions as the darker skin tone helps define the musculature better than pale or white skin
not that you'll be here in two months, anyway
