No, it's not weird. Interacting with others makes fitness a lot easier. It helps with accountability and motivation.

I have gym partners, shared logs and whatnot that we use to track progress. There are lots of ways to do it. If anything I only recommend you continue to talk/share with others, whether here or irl, it definitely helps all around.

That's alright, I always recommend people still eat something they really enjoy. IF it fits your macros, or your caloric intake, then whatever. Enjoy it. You don't have to eat boring foods 100% of the time.

it honestly feels more rewarding to eat something that's richer in fat/calories when limiting its intake throughout the week.


guess that would apply for anything though

Damn, very nice work!

I'm just about down to 180. A few more lbs and I'll probably just stop. Not as lean as I would like but I'm bored of cutting. lol

If I'm losing weight should I adjust the amount of calories I eat progressively? Or just keep within the same range until I reach my target weight

Keep the same range until you reach your target weight. At that point just slowly up your cals until your weight balances out.

lol, 179!

Finally broke the 180 barrier.

I still have annoying curves, though. I guess I was warned about this. At some point I have to start making muscle-building a priority to help fill things out. Otherwise I am always going to look like a garbage bag full of corn flakes.

Start bulking soon.

Once you build up muscle, it'll give you the shape you want. Chest/delts/lats need to fill out in order to give you a V taper, and your waist will look 10x better because of it + building leg and butt muscle helps the waist look smaller as well.

Just for the hell of it, woot:




Reach: The #1 thing (or rather, things) right now stopping me from being all gung-ho about a bulk is the fact that I still have a gut/"overhang" and man boobs.

It just feels like the only way to get rid of both is to cut, but maybe I'm underestimating the benefits of muscle at this point.

I CAN DO A PULLUP NOW!

AHHHHHHHH

This is probably trivial to people who have decent strength / bodyweight, but for me it's always been this unachievable thing -- this is so awesome.

Last time I tried a pullup, I weighed a lot more, and couldn't hold onto the bar for more than 5 seconds if my life depended on it.

Felt a lot like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xF0ekZztOA&t=3m20s

I'm not saying stacking masteron or trenbolone with standard-dose amphetamines is advisable for fat loss, but I am saying going from 205lb to 175lb in 8 weeks with minor loss to your lifts or muscle mass is awesome.

first actual check up I've had in years with a primary care doctor today
I weigh 210 lbs
there's history of diabetes on my mom's side of the family

although fortunately, it seems like I got a lot of the genes from my dad's side of the family. but I haven't really thought about the idea of diabetes until I saw my weight and then proceeded to say something like "yeah my mom toes the lie of diabetes by working out"

kind of a slap in the face, really
