NexoFatty Weightloss Thread

Anyone who's getting into the whole diet and fitness thing current, let's help each other out. Post your current weight, your goal weight, and what you're doing diet/exercise wise to help yourself out.

Currently: 170lbs
Goal: About 140lbs

I say about 140lbs, because that's the weight I'd like to be, but then once I start building muscle I'm well aware that that weight will probably rise.

Diet wise I've cut out all fizzy drinks and beer, except for Coke Zero, which luckily has no calories in it. I'm drinking at least 2 fruit juices a day, and at least 2 500ml glasses of water, walking the dog for 30 minutes each day, doing the Wii fit as much as I can fit in, and I have a treadmill I'm running on 3 times a week. Last week I was 173, so I guess I'm doing okay for now.

I'm going in for a huge assessment in a few weeks. I'm out of medication and I could exercise all day and lose nothing. (See: Hypothyroidism and its effect on metabolism)

As soon as I've given that time to kick in, I'm going to be hitting the gym at least 4 days a week for a 75-25 percent ratio vigorous aerobic exercise and resistance training. The gym is part of our hospital system and they have all kinds of certified staff on hand for everything to do with wellness. I'm going to go with fat percentage goals instead of weight. Body Mass Index and weight as a goal alone for simply being fit is a pile of bull shit. I'm 6'2'' with a large body frame yet I'm supposed to weight 150-190 lbs? No way. I'd be completely malnourished and skeletal if I were much below 190, so I'm going to just exercise until my body fat percentage is in a healthy range.

True dat. The Wii Fit measurements are so ridiculously off it's unreal. I'm overweight at the minute apparently (which I'm actually not, just slightly tubby around the midsection) and as I work out my weight seems to be going up, hmmm.

It's because you don't actually burn a whole lot of calories when you work out, but since your body knows it'll be recovering, it wants you to eat more. The only way to actually lose weight is by having a calorie deficit. Otherwise, you'll be working out and gaining mass.

Probably worth remembering that fruit juices usually contain a significant amount of (natural) sugar, and so though good for you, they are far from calorie-free!
