Countdown to end of Summer: days left!

MahTrainingBlog.tumblr.com #ShamelessPlugGonna see how detailed I can go before losing steam, here we go!Height: 181cm ( 5”11, I think? )Weight before: 77 kg, 35% body fatWeight After: 88kg, ~12-14% body fat.Time taken:Bit of a long story there. Took around 6-7 months to get from chubby to skinny-fat, after which I hovered around 20% body fat for a while, (see second picture). Wasn’t exercising, lost the first 15% by diet alone (low carb, low protein, low fat). After a while of yo-yoing, I just made the decision to really commit myself. Started eating more every day; protein, veggies, kept carbs out of the equation because it seemed that I would very quickly put-on weight whenever they were involved, and took 4 months to get an overall toned appearance - that’d be picture 4, I was more-or-less at 78kg, averaged at 16% body fat. Then came my Great Bulk, a period of half a year where I put on muscle and fat with the intent of getting more mass into myself. (See: swolebro) And a few more months of maintenance has led me to the final pic, reasonably toned, but still very much a work in progress. :)Diet and Exercise Strat:Diet:-Learned my macros (amounts of protein/fat/carb I should intake every day to achieve a leaner look), and found them to be optimally; High protein, medium fat, low carb. -Eating Smart: learned this the hard way during the skinny-fat period. Starving yourself isn’t the way to go it just sends your body into a metabolic adaptation, making it greedy and storing whatever it can as fat. Eat well and you’ll benefit from it.Exercise:(Getting a bit sleepy, probably a bad idea to do this at 3AM.)-HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training, also known as HIIT was a great way to shed the earlier layers of fat. Get your heart racing, work-up a sweat for a couple hours a day. It’s fun and good for you! Running, jumprope, jazzercise, nothing is out of bounds. -Weight training: girls, guys, whomever is actually insane enough to read this through; lifting weights isn’t going to turn you into a hulking behemoth. Find the sweet-spot of exhaustion on the 15th rep. Then do that. A lot. Slowly but surely, you’re going to notice it gets lighter. But lest we not forget: things don’t get easier, we just get better.-Sleep: Could go into the science of HGH, won’t. Sleep a lot, when you can. (Like I’m about to do! :D )-Goals: Don’t set unrealistic goals for yourself. A general thought is so much more powerful than you might think so long as you stick to it. "I am going to train until I can fill out a shirt or at least look damn good when that shirt isn’t on." was my personal one. Find that mantra and repeat it to yourself ad nauseum. Then make it true.Okay, so, I’m starting to nod off. Hope any of this helps! Come follow me on my workout blog above, ask questions, send me messages, anything!

Gonna see how detailed I can go before losing steam, here we go!

Height: 181cm ( 5”11, I think? )

Weight before: 77 kg, 35% body fat
Weight After: 88kg, ~12-14% body fat.

Time taken:

1 year ago was the ending point for me, I didn’t like the way I looked and I wished I was something different, i was sad, unhappy and extremely self conscious. That day was my turning point and a year later and over 20kgs lost I feel like a completely different person, I run, I lift, I swim, I box, and I have fallen in love with being who I really am.

My 12 week Progress.

I am 5’1 and weight over 200lbs! So far I have lost 12lbs since January just by cutting down my mammoth portions and walking my dog every day, Being a sufferer of depression and becoming a slave to my own body I have put my foot down once and for all! The reason for my weight gain is because I have had to go through three pregnancy losses in a row and by eating.. that way the only way I could cope, NOT ANYMORE!My 12 week progress

—This is the kind of resolve that leads to serious changes. Keep it up.

The key to losing weight and keeping it off is consistency. Consistently make healthy choices when it comes to what you eat, consistently workout, consistently get enough sleep, and consistently believe that you can do it!


 —- So true, Kate!

50 pound weight loss

<b> Height<b> : 5’3 in both pics

<b> Weight <b>: 164 lbs on left and 114 lbs on right

<b> How long did it take, how much did I lose and how did I do it? <b>: I started losing weight in May 2010, a month before graduating high school and hit my ultimate goal of 125 lbs in February 2013, so 3 years. I decided I would try for 114 since I’m very naturally petite. I hit my current goal weight a week ago. I am turning 22 in a week, on April 22nd and I am so proud of the work I’ve accomplished and couldn’t ask for a better bday gift to myself.
