Title: SLAPís COVID Weight Loss Club
Post by: GardenSkater77 on March 06, 2021, 08:31:00 PM
Yo Chubby SLAPers

I have never been the picture of health, but barely leaving the house for 1 year has caused me to gain 15 lbs of pure fat.

Now that it looks like life is about to begin again I need my shit together before the summer or skateboarding will suck.

I picking 20 lbs as my goal, cause I was trying to drop 10-15 lbs before all this shit.

Join me for the fight and post your final weight loss total if you like.

Itís a bit rough and you wouldnít do it for more than a week straight cause of the Mercury but if you only eat canned tuna, not the tasty ones either but the ones in spring water, yeah if you eat only that but as many as you want and only drink water for a week and then drop back and have only the tuna and water maybe two days a week in addition to some sort of healthy eating plan or counting calories for the rest of the week yeah youíll defz lose weight quickly, particularly in the first week

Also if you enjoy walking or running do it a couple days a week but honestly for best long term weight loss just lift weights rather than doing cardio for an hour

I lost weight during Covid. Iíve had very little work and money for a year. The anxiety and boredom caused me to do yoga and a bunch of home gym exercises. I also picked up running for awhile.

I'm with ya man. I gained 25 since this shit started. No diet change either other than a little bit more booze. It's funny in your 40s you can gain weight just thinking about food.  I chose 20, and once the snow melts and I can get outside it should be fairly easy (I hope)

Still, I will attest to the benefits of straight canned tuna. Great protein density.



Damnit, Garden... feeling very attacked rn. I reached a lifetime high score of 200 pounds.
That's 20 bucks overweight for me.

I splurged on a complete in December and only skated two or three times. My depression has been a mfer.
But, I'm transitioning through a manic phase and trying to ride this out with wisdom and lessons learned in therapy.
Returning to exercise that isn't grinding time in a gym but rather spent on an activity I love would be great for mental health.
Plus, I've had in mind a long time to develop switch pushing. That would be some epic cardio.

For those of us with ample fats coupled with an inverse quantity of determination, I suggest steaks... I mean stakes.

What are we willing to sacrifice for fat loss?

When I have wanted to loose weight in the past I have usually sacrificed sugar, white bread, white pasta and Beer. They are fairly easy to replace if you don't mind whole grain alternatives, white wine, dark chocolate and fruit. Obviously you also need time to prepare your own food. It also gives me a much more steady flow of energy and after about a week I loose almost all cravings for sugar.

That type of diet probably takes a bit longer to work than going 100 Percent tuna, but I would assume it is much healthier in the long run. You will also take very big shits. Almots like a cow.

I got enough fat for a TM, riders, box packers & angel investors for the company to later sell out to alike.

Since July i bought a Specialized bike & have been walking every day for 3-4 miles. Some days, I try to run & beat my time. I still smoke pot so my late nite munchies don't help (I tear up Animal Crackers, you're supposed only have 13 at most)

After dark, I go into my basement where there are dumbells & a bench press & I get it on. I have found weight training guides & created a program for myself for legs, shoulders, chest & biceps. I do situps, crunches, & leg raises for abs. My two rules: try to go slow & try to beat my last sessions' expenditures & exertions.

I really found that a fitness tracker helps & logging all the food you put in your body helps with using that tracker so you can get an idea of the progress you're making. I believe most Doctors believe fitbits are BS but he said "whatever gets you out there!"

I have lost 6" off my waist & about 60 lbs. Besides having to replace my clothes, I feel great and if the snow ever disappears, im sooo geeked to hit the streets for a skkkkratch er 2 or 3.

Lastly, if "you don't feel like working out" a lot, buy some pre-workout with 1-3 Dmaa, its the closest thing to legal meth. I put this shit in a glass with 3 ounces of water and pound it, and 5 minutes later im basically this guy in this video

I wish all you Pals/Future Pals all the luck in taking back the streets!

My diet has been terrible since the mental health of isolation has taken its toll. I'm boozing and eating whatever nowadays like every day is a cheat day. I'm too old to be doing that to myself.

I'm in. I'll look at 20lbs as my goal. Let's do this pals.

I think it is a bit too much. When I used to do lots of sports and I was on a state team I had to get regular physicals. The doctor marked it as critical and unhealthy, if you had lost more than 12 pounds in three months.  I'd go for like a pound per week max. In my experience people with radical diets never lost weight in the long run. My mother for example would do these crazy fasts and strict diets. She'd be in a bad mood for the whole diet. And she would quickly get back to her regular weight (just a little bit overweight) in just a few months after the diet. She has never liked her weight, but always obsessed about it. She probably has a bit of an eating disorder... Also for the past 3 years I have more or less regularly listened to the Joe Rogan experience and him and his comic friends always seem to be starting new diets, but they never loose weight in the long run. Joe Diaz is probably the exception. He has been slowly losing weight for almost two years now. I think he just changed up his eating and exercise habits instead of going vegan or low carb or only meat or something crazy like that.

I am in.   Henry Rollins said that when he started lifting, his coach told him not to check out his progress until a month or two down the road.  I can't stand looking at myself in the mirror these days, but it will be interesting to see how I have changed by July 1st.

Down 12lbs this year, in a contest to see who loses the most in 3 months. Loser buys the winner a deck. Iím very down to get in on a pals weight loss.

Iím going for 50lbs. Bold goal, but gotta get serious about my health
Title: Re: SLAPís COVID Weight Loss Club
Post by: Hmmmm Nice Bike on March 07, 2021, 09:50:09 AM
I'm currently at 193lbs from being 210lbs-ish last year, but I wanna be in the 150's by this mid summer, so my vote went for 30+

I used to be way heavier though at 320lbs. I'll be turning 29 next month, so perhaps it's just easier to lose weight at this age than it is for some of you more mature slappers, but this is what I've been doing...

Back in early summer 2019 I cut sugar from my diet besides natural sugars and also started calorie counting. As for working out I would walk 4MPH for one hour and I started to do some beginner weight lifting, I would do this about 4 or 5 times a week. I also drank a ton of water daily, like a gallon or at least close to it. After being consistent for a bit I dropped down to 220lbs-ish by early 2020...

So then in 2020 when shit hit the fan, I only lost about 10lbs and plateaued for the entire year despite still working out and even skating again for the first time in almost a decade. I blew it because despite keeping active I was no longer counting calories and casually consuming sugary snacks again. It sucks, but at least I maintained my weight and no progress was exactly lost.

Since the beginning of this year I'm back to calorie counting and cut down on sugar but I didn't cut it out completely this time though, for example if I want a sandwich or something and it only has like 3 grams of added sugar or so I'll let it slide for the day. At worst I'll consume a few grams but try to keep it under 10 and not make it a daily habit. For exercise  I'm doing heavier weight lifting now and only walking 4MPH for half an hour afterwards just for a little cardio. I'm only working out 4 days a week but would like to skate during the other days once the weather around here clears up.

Anyways, that's pretty much what I've been up to in order to try being healthy again. I've never tried any gimmicks or trends, just simple exercise, a healthier diet and staying hydrated. I'm also laying off salty foods sometimes but not as drastically as sugar.

As for food, this is what I regularly eat:

Eggs
Tuna
Turkey Bacon
Skinless Chicken Breast
Oatmeal
Beans
White Rice
Fruits and Veggies
Chorizo
Sugar Free Jello
Potatoes
Peanut Butter or Bologna Sandwiches...
And I'll usually allow myself a cheat day on Fridays, but I just try not to go overboard.

So yeah, that's about it, and as for why I was so heavy the TLDR version is I tore my ACL back in 2010, reinjured it in 2011, stopped skating, finally got the surgery in 2013, fell into depression and picked up bad eating habits from my Mexican family while sitting at home.

Good luck.

Sup Pals!  I'm 6'3" and am sitting around 220lbs right now.  I feel my best around 190ish, but think I'm good for 20lbs.  I'm in a friends wedding later this summer and want to "She's All That" some people I haven't seen in awhile.

Like a lot of you guys, I've been drinking too much through the pandemic and have had dry weeks here and there lately, but always end up getting trashed on the weekends.  Woof!

I'm vegan and have no excuses to be this overweight.  Dr told me everyone is slipping right now.  I live in MI, so I've only been out to skate a couple times, but it seems like spring is coming in quicker this year.  Going to be skating, biking, watching my beer consumption, and might be starting a job soon where I'll basically be on my feet all day.  I know that's going to kick my ass for a couple days, but think it will help a lot.

Let's get this!

I lost 20 pounds by the new year, then put about ten back on since. Iíd like to get back to that weight since itís noticeably easier on my knees and ankles (not in great shape from nearly a decade of being 75+ pounds overweight). I skate a bunch and do weight  training a few times a week, so since Iím not drinking these days, I should be on my way just by eating less trash.

Alright. I weighed in at 163 last time I was at the doc. I'm 5'8 and feel most comfortable around 145-150. To the bystander, i look fit enough but i got some back fat/love handles going on for the first time. Back after Thanksgiving, I'd started running again, month 1 at 30-45 min every other day, month 2, 45-60min. Cycling on days between and walking 2-3miles with my partner in the AM 6days. Hiking a few miles a few days a week too. Skating low impact stuff 45-60min 3 or 4 days per week. Then I slipped running and am only now just able to walk and bike again. No skating or running. I've been doing some intermittent fasting 6days per week with no food from 10pm-2pm for a couple months as well. Cut out the processed sugars and generally eat well, but can seem to drop any lbs without being extremely active. No booze, minimal added sugar, minimal fat/meat. Looking forward to running again. Fuck back fat!

Yeah I mean I wouldnít run it long term but I lost a bit of weight a few years ago I did the tuna thing for maybe ten days. I lost a few kilos in first week which sort of inspired me to keep going in a sustainable fashion. Itís like well if you can eat tuna for a week straight you can do anything haha

Going to cut out booze and fast food. Cut down on the bread. Need to get moving every day too. Been wanting to lose weight for a while and Iíve been buying stuff to help like a jump rope and a 30lb kettle but itís actually getting out and doing it after a 10 hour work day thatís the hard part.

I paid a good amount of money (400$) for an online personal trainer awhile back (which I totally fucked off like an idiot).  I still have the excel spread sheet plan they sent me, which outlines and calculates macros as well as gives an idea for exercises.

PM me if you are interested. Just trying to spread the shalom like a thick schmear.

I was previously underweight and struggling to *gain* weight in the early pandemic. Early Covid had me rationing my food because I was afraid to go to the grocery store. My local supermarket was literally across the street from the hospital that reported NYCs first official Covid death. The place looked like a war zone, had sirens wailing constantly, had refrigerated dead body storage trucks parked outside, was full of doctors getting sick af etc. It was a rough time in that neighborhood.

Then I started eating peanut butter out of the jar and drinking protein shakes every day. Then I moved to LA and no longer walk/ride a bike everywhere. Wouldnít you know it I gained 20 pounds like lightning.

Now Iíd like to lose about ten of those so that I can get back to my pants fitting properly. Iíve gone thru pants sagging off my ass during early pandemic anxiety weight loss, and now Iím too big for the damn pants due to overzealousness with my bulking techniques.

Gonna see if simply cutting out the flagrant abuse of desserts and peanut butter can bring me back into check.

I feel fat as fuck right now and I need to start filming for a video part for my 50th birthday next year....and now I saw this thread so I feel like I'm going to have to join in this madness.  I have been putting it off.  I don't need to lose a ton, but i'm 190 and I need to be 170-175 to feel normal and not tubby.  I'll put 20lbs of loss on here by July 1.  Time to buy one of those fucking jump ropes that Kelly Hart keeps advertising I guess (for reals, because I HATE running but it's the thing that works the best for my fitness).  If I work out modestly but cut out sugar the lbs fall off for me. 
I've done this thing called the Whole Life Challenge and it works wonders for me, for those looking for some kind of structure.  Very simple, work out for a min of 10 minutes a day (strenuous workout) and completely cut out all added sugars from your diet.  Seems kind of easy at first but basically anything packaged has added sugar in it.  Mostly it just keeps you accountable by logging in and recording how good/bad you're doing on it.  Sometimes it's purely the accountability that is needed.

I've done this thing called the Whole Life Challenge and it works wonders for me, for those looking for some kind of structure.  Very simple, work out for a min of 10 minutes a day (strenuous workout) and completely cut out all added sugars from your diet.  Seems kind of easy at first but basically anything packaged has added sugar in it.  Mostly it just keeps you accountable by logging in and recording how good/bad you're doing on it.  Sometimes it's purely the accountability that is needed.

Start flowing Neen Williams some NBs in exchange for some PT...

P.S. I almost just focused my laptop over an annoying customeróIím in food withdrawal.

One 8th / quarter of coke, every weekend with minimal eating and sleeping for 2/3 months and it'll fall off drastically.

Not healthy at all obvs but it works big time.

Yeah but you get really angry all the time, man
I have experience with this haha

I gotta weigh myself but yeah I would definitely benefit from having a go here, too. I would like to lose 5 kilograms. Iíd be down for everyone to chuck 5 or 10 bucks in and whoever loses the most weight gets paid. Lets get some bigger blokes on here going to town on themselves and I mean even if you donít come first you still win ay

Last year my wife talked me into doing a whole-30 diet. I made it 27 days and said fuck all - but I lost 9 lbs. I think the big things were no booze, sugars or eating out. Some of the rest was fairly suspect - but it did work.

I could use to lose 7-10 now, so I am cutting back to a beer every other night, and trying to get back to riding my bike 4 hrs a week. (I used to do 12-15)

My fitness level is decent right now, but Iíve for sure got a layer of insulation that is not needed. Getting married in June so my fiancť and I are trying to eat healthier, practice portion control etc. Hoping to lose about 10 which will put me back at college weight.

Did 5 days of the Fasting Mimicking Diet last week, pretty much a major calorie restriction while upping the percentage of calories that come from carbohydrates and dropping protein. Was cranky and sore all week (kept the same workout routine) but lost 6 lbs. Havenít weighed myself since Saturday but Iíve probably gained 3-4 of those back. Was for sure a good exercise in self control and appreciating meal time vs round the clock snacking.

I'm 160-162 lbs right now (weighed myself in the evening, not in the morning as I should), and standing at five-eight. Got more flab on me than I'd prefer and want to cut it down to 155 or so.

Since November I barely exercised due to all gyms being closed and the winter. It was awful. I've found that it doesn't really matter what I eat; if I'm not exercising, fat is accumulating.

Now, with the warmer weather and COVID cases lowering, I can start to move again.

This year, I'm going to try and change things in terms of my schedule and wake up around 7:30 then go skate without eating or drinking anything (if work permits). After jumping rope to warm up, or a bike ride to the park, then a 30-min warm-up skate, I'll take a break and eat a light breakfast that I bring with me (maybe just a breakfast bar and a banana) and some water and coffee, then skate for another hour to seventy-five minutes.

I've heard that you should exercise in the morning on a completely empty stomach, not even water or coffee, to expedite fat loss. That's incredibly difficult, but I think I can make it work since skating is so fun that I won't be thinking about food.

Another strike against me is that I need carbs. I can't see myself adopting a keto diet. And I don't even eat that much, nor do I eat an unhealthy diet all the time, yet fat accumulates. I'm assuming that the carbs are sticking to me regardless of my caloric intake or exercise, so hopefully the morning sessions will help.

And much respect to those of you heavier than me but doing everything you can to stave off weight gain, it's inspiring!

Got damn this is the thread I needed.


Drinking a shit ton since quarantine (No beer though). Skating's weird right now. Tried to supplement it with running daily but that shit is boring as fuck. Easy to tap out early.

Never really been big on protein/carbs but nevertheless, Dickies are getting a bit tight around the ole waist.

Looking towards 15lbs. Stress eating/drinking is too real though.

Drunk... Polpot.

im 17 5,8 and 130pounds before i shit. i used to around 145-150. heres some stuff i did that helped me

- i was always into spicy food, but really doubled down on the ghost pepper when covid started. Every meal had me sweating and sharting. it makes non-fatty/salty foods taste good and raises your metabolism for a bit

- sugary drinks - i still binge on chocolates and shit (stole a whole tray of 24 oh henry's 3 weeks ago...gained like 5 pounds) since im taking advantage of my youth but quitting soda etc does get easier at a certain point. Nowadays sugary drinks dont taste as appealing to me and my body rejects/hates the sugar rush.

- pushing hard on shit bearings and hard 45mm wheels - not as reccomended since its tough on joints but essentially your legs are the biggest muscle in your body and gaining leg muscles raises overall testerone production and resting metabolic rate. (my left leg is significantly juicer then my right...time to start switch pushing)

- WATER WATER WATER WATER - ive been drinking a shit ton of expensive bottled water mindlessly since ive made it a habit and always have water bottles in my workspace (havent seen yellow piss in months baby!!) i do believe its worth the extra cost of bottled water to stay slightly over hydrated all the time.

- strong ass instant coffee - fuck the directions, i fill up my mug/cup with 1/4 instant coffee and chug it down with a wethers caramel. Makes skating feel strong and poppy and fills me with gods power to do work. (i consider it a cardio workout)

i think i have more but i forgot

Iím needing to cut down on energy drinks. Iím intermittent fasting, and eating one meal a day at night (my adderall prescription def. helps).

But to make it through a day of driving a few hundred miles and cleaning about 100 portapotties, I slam energy drinks like itís no ones business. I know they got those 0 calorie joints, but they taste like bug repellent and NyQuil. But Iíve been good with water, at least 4 quarts a day. Whatís not chill is almost pissing your pants several times a day, though.

Last I checked Iím down 14lbs.

Sup y'all. In October 2018 I was diagnosed with hypertension and my doctor was adamant that I lose weight to help keep it in check. I'm just shy of 6'3" and was 220 at the time, and by summer 2019 I was down to 190. I've put some weight back on since but have been steady at around 200.

The biggest thing that helped was using a calorie tracking app (free version of MyFitnessPal or whatever) and logging every single thing that i ate. Also a food scale to weigh when necessary. On paper it seems like a lot of work, but it really isn't and it just kind of becomes second nature at a point. And in addition to helping you eat at a calorie deficit, it helps you figure out where excess calories are slipping in so that you can change some of those habits.

I know for me, I thought I was being "good" by eating a ton of fruit, but in reality is was just taking in an excess of calories when I wasn't hungry. Just little stuff like having A banana instead of 2. Also making sure to log every beer...man, I love an IPA but holy shit. And being honest about the amount of exercise you log.

Anyway, honesty, calorie reduction and portion control (with the goal of changing habits) were my key.

I'm at about 200 right now, but normally sit around 180 to 185.

I'd like to lose 15 pounds by summer so I'm in good shape for skating/hiking/bicycling. And then ideally down to 175 or so by fall.

It's been a hard year in terms of physical (and mental!) health because of Covid. Drinking way too much has been the main culprit. All those extra calories, plus eating like shit while drinking/hungover, plus no motivation to exercise for a few days after drinking.

Main goal is to cut the booze. Know that healthier eating comes natural for me when I'm sober. Second goal is to exercise every day - even if it's just walking the dog a few miles. Have a friend to play tennis with a few days a week. Start skating and bicycling as the weather gets nicer. Have a kettlebell that I'd like to throw around for a bit each morning too.

Stoked to have some extra motivation to lose some weight with all of you guys!

Damn, that sounds horribly unhealthy. Your blood sugar must go on a daily rollercoaster ride. How about coffee or some healthier energy, like food to get you through your day? Putting all that sugar in you, you are breaking fast anyways.

Same here on the booze. I did dry January with no drinking and watched my diet, lost over 12 pounds and felt amazing. Less joint pain, soreness. Just real good overall.

Since then, started drinking on weekends again and last time I checked put 6 pounds back on.

I'm already pretty good about my diet. The main factor here is really alcohol. It's like flipping a switch.

So yeah, looking to drop 20 pounds by summer, will cut out booze and take it easy on bread, sugar and junk foods.

Let's do this!

Guayaki makes the bomb loose leaf mate. Last time I drove across the states, during pandemic, I didn't want to stop for coffee anywhere so I brewed up 2 1 gallon jugs worth and it was smooth sailing the whole time. Mate lattes with hemp/coconut milk substitute, cinnamon, and a little honey is fire.

Iíve been doing keto/intermittent fasting for about 3 weeks now.  Have lost probably in the 20-30 pound range (didnít want to know how bad I got so I didnít look at the starting weight, but had a rough idea).   Started to get fat when I moved to LA 10 years ago because I was in grad school/on set pretty much every day for 2-3 years, so I was on a steady diet of stress, craft service, cigarettes, alcohol.   Then I hit the post-school depression which tacked on more pounds and had a few foot and shoulder issues that got in the way of keeping an exercise routine going. 

Anyways, this has been a long time coming and itís not been super painful to abstain from food unless Iím out in my car, which isnít often bc in still furloughed and try and stay contactfree. 

I set my first cheat weekend for April 16th and I spend a lot of time thinking about how motherfucking hard on carbs Iím going for those two days.   Iím going to evaluate where I am 18 weeks after that hopefully be able to be done with it on my birthday.

Alright, posting this image for some accountability.

Long story short, I've put on about 40-45 lbs of pure fat over the past ~15 months or so. A combination of isolation from Covid and anxiety/alienation from serious under-employment have led me to become just a junk food slob. This thread is as good of a reason as any to turn my shit around.

Looking to get under 160 lbs by July. For my body type, I'd say 140 lbs is my ideal weight. Will be posting once a week or so, keep myself accountable, and hopefully motivate some others here who may be struggling.

Best of luck pals.

How's everyone doing so far? 

I just got hired for a bud tending job, so I'll be on my feet constantly.  My last 2 jobs over the last 4 years were office type scenarios where I sat on my ass pretty much all day.  I'm going to go out and buy some supportive running shoes for work and think this will help immensely, as I've basically been sitting too much since last winter.

Anyone have running shoe recs?  I've had Ultraboost's in the past, but think I want to go with a firmer outsole.  Hope ya'll have a great weekend.  Let's make good choices pal's!  Shalom.

Lost about 10 pounds since late Feb. Down to about 210 now. Aiming to get down to 190-ish by the time I graduate from Grad School in May.

Haven't done a ton of additional exercising, but really moved away from sandwiches/chips for meals to some kind of lean meat on a bed of spinach for lunch. Snacks went from sweets to yogurt with a few blueberries and dark chocolate. Dinners are usually salmon/fish/chicken and vegetables. Breakfast is usually a handful of peanuts and a granola bar.

If i get hungry after a workout, i have a glass of Ghost Protein Powder and water.

I tried intermittent fasting in the past and it worked for about a couple of weeks, but wasn't sustainable to only eat a few hours a day and I immediately gained everything I lost after I quit.

i didnt need to lose weight but I wanted to get healthier last fall.

im 6'2" and 185 down from 193.

I skip breakfast.  if im starving ill eat a banana and protein bar (160 calories)

I eat the same lunch every day. 
- 6 carrots
- 6 triscuits
- 2 tbs of hummus
- handful of almonds
- a handful of sweet potato chips
- an apple

for dinner its literally a protein of my choice, rice/quinoa, and a big helping of green/orange/yellow veggies with a sauce of some kind. 

I don't eat dairy anymore, no chips, no candy bars, no gummy snacks, anything fried (90% of the time..i fuck with fries or tots sometimes), no bread really, no sweets except dark chocolate or some dried fruit.

i drink 3-4 liters of water a day.

I lost 8 pounds and I feel AMAZING.  I also still drink 2-3 beers a day which im working on....

should I eat more? probably...but Im using this time to sort of reset my body and figure out what shit bothers me, triggers GI issues, makes me feel bloated or tired, etc. So eventually I'll obviously up my calories for lunch.

you literally have to just not eat as much, watch what goes into your mouth, think about the benefits vs destruction of what that food will do.

be active 4-5 times a week for 30 min.

its worked for me.  calorie counting and mindfulness is all you need.

my poops are god tier! and that's coming from someone who has dealt with serious IBS for 10 years.

If you feel good that is great. If you feel you need to eat more have a salad for lunch and spinach with dinner. I had stomach problems until I discovered I was mildly lactose intolerant. If I had the answers I would be in shape but Iím basically trying to cut out ice cream, pretzels, potato chips, sugar cereals, etc, etc. I donít drink alcohol unless I am at a family event and Iím only having soda with Friday pizza.

I've been injured and put on some weight while losing most all of my muscle so I'm going to try to lose 15 lbs and gain some strength.

Can we talk a little bit about the common body dysmorphia that can accompany skateboarding? How many of us feel ashamed about our bodies if we're not super skinny? I want to give a loving shout out to Fred Gall and Andrew Allen as body positive examples of fellow full figured skaters. <3

I weighed 199 a couple days ago. At my heaviest I was 240 but lost weight in 2018 or 19, idr when exactly. I eventually gained some back and got up to like 208 but it would be awesome if I could get down to 180. I havenít weighed under 200 since highschool.

Down 15 lbs in 2 weeks so far. Intermittent fasting and calorie deficit. I also walk about 12 miles a day at work.

Not the healthiest method, Iím aware. But once I get close to target Iíll clean it up.

Weather is going to break soon and the clocks just flipped so Iíll have more time to skate and cycle after work which will give me more calories to eat better.

I'd been intermittent fasting for a few months but, even when I was still running, it wasn't incredibly effective until I recently began watching calories. I don't have a scale, but the love handles are dropping away quick as fuck over the past couple weeks. good for you on the 12 miles. that's a haul!!!

Itís only been 6 days since I posted in this thread but I just stepped on the scale and weigh 195.5.
I havenít been doing much different except doing 20 min of dumbbell arm exercises after work and wearing 2 pound wrist weights while Iím at work.
I donít eat breakfast. I drink a bang and take some blood flow supplements that are for sexual support but I find they just help me with energy during the day. I might have a little snack like a bag of chips and a soda while Iím at work. Iíve been buying dried pork sausages and eating a couple before I do my short arm workout so I have a little protein in me. I typically only eat dinner as my 1 meal of the day.

Impressive. Iím at 3 lb loss and I basically just stopped eating after 5 PM and not eating junk food. Also been taking my cruiser out to the store if I only need to pick up an item or two.  I am in a good mental space to make a lifestyle change.

If I didnít have skateboarding I wouldnít care but I feel like we all do something that almost none of the adults we know could even come close, so even though I now suck in our world I rule in theirís, so I wonít stop until it hurts too much. This is my moment to set the clock back.

I downloaded this app called ďlose itĒ Iím sure there are other similar ones. I can set a goal of how much I want to lose and it lays out a calorie max for the day to lose it with no effort and then with my Apple Watch tracking steps I can earn extra calories on top of that.

The 12 miles at work happens regardless I was just eating too many calories and staying at that weight so by being calorie deficient itís just falling off.

And Iím in the reply screen on mobile and canít see your username but to the person said they were fasting and running your body was probably going into preservation mode. You were burning a ton of calories running but not putting anything back so it was holding onto everything inside where nutrients were going to come from.

When Iím cycling I typically donít fast, I just monitor calorie intake and burn. Having a smart watch and a few apps help for sure.

I haven't cut sugar completely but I definitely noticed a difference when I took it out of my coffee. I used to drink that bullshit that dunkin claims is coffee but is like 70% flavored sugary creamer, 20% ice and 10% coffee. Switched to black coffee a few years ago, energy boost from it last longer and no sugar crash. Plus save a shit ton of calories there. A medium dunkin iced coffee with a flavored cream is like 250 calories, that's no way to start a day.

Iím on a keto diet and I was warned about the keto ďfluĒ when starting out but havenít felt anything like that either. 

Was a 12 year smoker, didnít feel that much better when I quit (habit coincided with me being less active and gaining weight so I wasnít getting my breath back really anyways).  I feel like Iím just missing out on the nuance of life hah

I have been a bit of a pile this week I weighed myself and I am 77kg so 170lbs
I donít think thatís that bad but deadset I have a drinking gut, pot fucken belly haha and I want to get rid of it

I have been doing basic shit on the bench and free weights this week I am gonna try smash that and not drink during the week anymore. Donít know if really want to lose much weight on the scales but better to get it off my guts and onto arms and legs and shit
I really need to go get one of those soft measuring tapes and measure my fat parts and log it sort of thing

The carbs thing I donít know everyoneís different but for me I have always been real big on it, I would have a whole baguette for lunch and stuff and then mashed potatoes with dinner maybe I overdid it but I found out travelling in some places I felt like I lost heaps of weight around my guts cause I wasnít eating carbs

But I crave them even last night I hadnít had any carbs all day I mean I was mad stoned but I had like three dinners and I wasnít satisfied till I put a frozen pizza in the oven and got my bread fix

Felt so rank this morning though, absolutely destroyed the toilet when I woke up

I quite eating cheese for a few weeks and felt somewhat out of the dairy.

But seriously, keep pushing everyone! Being mindful about diet and exercise is the biggest step.

Also, weight loss isn't the only indicator of progress. Especially if you put on muscle at some point in your life (don't do it, unless you want to become hella top-heavy). Much rather pay attention to your waistline and watch those belts and pants fit better as you go along.

Good on you. I now only drink one 8 oz coke a week on Friday with my Friday night pizza.

I am more a soda drinker than beer drinker but I try not to keep either in the house.

I fucking love Coca-Cola. Hell, I have fantasies of starting a soda bar and an online soda business of regional sodas and craft sodas, but I would probably wind up with diabetes.

Decided Iím going to have a weigh-in day once or twice every month. No point in weighing yourself everyday due to water weight, dehydration and a bunch of other factors.

Been eating a lot of turkey and chicken lately. Lots of veggies, brown rice, eggs and salads as well. Eased up on the bread and pasta but havenít been able to fully quit, I just love that shit too much. No sugary drinks (orange juice was as sugary as it got for me anyways, I donít drink soda) and will only have beer once a week (2-3 light beers on either Friday or Saturday night, not both).

Been feeling pretty good but havenít been able to move as much as I want due to a blown out back. Iíve been able to take 7-10km walks everday and ride my stationary bike, but nothing more.

BJJ starts again here in about a week, hope my back feels better then. Once I start training 3-4x a week again combined with my dietary changes, the weight is just going to melt off. Canít wait.

My strategy is to do regular 20-30 min workouts (3-4 times a week) that enable me to skate intense sessions. I prefer burning calories while skating rather than doing extended workouts. I was also surprised to learn how much calories a 220+ person burns while walking, so I have started to do more of that. Goes well with meeting friends outside to reduce indoor contacts during the pandemic, too.

yo dawg, if you are tryna put on arm muscle, push ups are the way to go imo. you can start with as many as you can do without being totally gassed, track the #, and move up by whatever number you feel is appropriate when you feel is appropriate. you'll get more definition than just Popeye biceps. after pushups get comfortable enough, you can move onto pull-ups and/or chair dips. what makes these, for me, better than lifting, is the convenience- I can just drop and do a set of pushups anytime, anywhere in my house, yard, etc. I've got a pullup bar outside the house that I try to do just 3 on each time I go outside. Good luck G

6í, 32 years old
Starting weight: 250
Current weight: 215
Goal weight: 190

Iíve dropped 35 since December and am on track to lose another 25. Pretty Gnar and life changing. Pretty much in the worst shape of my life during 2020.

I was having frequent/ gnarly heart palpitations and generally feeling horrible most of the time. When to a doctor and cardiologist who told me I had to essentially change my entire lifestyle and get it together.

Iím eating 1000-1200 calories per day, 5/6 days per week, then pretty much whatever I want on the off days. My diet is super strict (no added sugars, 1000mg of sodium or less, almost no saturated/trans fats). High in fiber, fruits, veggies and nuts and no meat throughout the days Iím calorie counting. Also, 0 alcohol.

Skateboarding 30-120+ minutes per day and recently added ďyogaĒ and some other exercises to warm up for said sessions. I was biking 50-60 miles a week but have paused that a bit while I get more into skating. Even though I had skated since I was 8, this was my longest hiatus and harshest re-learning. I went from barely being able to roll for more than 5 minutes and not being able to kickflip, to now skating as long as Iíd like (and doing 2/3 sessions a day).

EDIT: From doing so much cardio/ exercise, my blood pressure has dropped 10+ points and my resting heart rate went from ~80 to 50/60

If anyone else wants advice on how to follow this, please, donít hesitate to DM me. The above regiment is all supervised by my general practitioner. The diet, while strict, doesnít suck as much as keto and it took me a week or two to fully adjust. Stay healthy, yíall!

Matty. Youíre a cunt for sure but not that kind of cunt. Youíre a solid cunt. A good bloke if you will.

Youíre friendís heart attacks were probably a result of bad genetics and poor health.

As for myself, I am on track a month in at 5 LB loss and I have really only stopped grazing, eating after 5 PM and limiting bread, soda and dessert.

The first 5 LB is the easiest so I expect to have to pick up the pace in April but the weather is warming so skateboarding will be opening up.

Itís nice to have a group to hold oneself accountable to.

I beg to differ. I think diet is extremely personal, but weight loss always boils down to how much energy is consumed vs. burned. Exercise can be essential depending on how one goes about it, there are a million different ways.

For me, counting/reducing calories including activities works perfectly without any special diet. Iíll have burger and fries on a skate day and it does not throw off a steady weight loss of 0,5 kg/week since end of last year.

Obviously, if one eats junk food with high carb and high fat every day, activities wonít help with other nutritional problems of such diet. Nevertheless, weight loss could be achieved with intense activities.

Hit the scale this morning and can say I have achieved my 20lbs lost. 174-154 in just about 3 weeks. I hit my 154 mark Monday but wanted to make sure I stayed at 154 all week and it wasn't just water weight loss or a fluke maintained it the full week so I'm calling it a win. Feel like I could probably drop another 5-10, I'll clean up the diet and see how it goes.

Nice going everyone!

Down 8 lb, all by (almost) cutting out the booze. Have switched to smoothies for breakfast, alternated by scrambled eggs w some protein like turkey breast.

Will also cut down on carbs starting next week.

Rad to see everyone making such big losses, props to all of you.

Iím back up 4lbs, to about 1-2 less than when I started trying to lose weight. Not super bummed on it though as Iíve been putting on a little more muscle and know what I need to work on to really drop lbs which is portion control. Iím not a terrible snacker but Iím always clean plate club no matter what gets put on it.

Have another 5-day calorie restriction diet planned for next week so weíll see what results I get and if the weight stays off longer this time.

Hey folks,  Iíll chime in here on what I hope to be doing to get my weight down.  First eliminate beer, second I am going to track calories with a plan of losing 1 1/2 lbs a week (using the loseit app).  Third I am going to get some substantial activity everyday, weather it is skating, biking to work or whatever, also on days where the weather sucks Iíll probability work out in my basement.

Hopefully with the weather getting nicer getting out, being more active will be pretty natural. Also without drinking Iím a lot more active as drinking just straight up makes me lazy, weather itís being a bit hung the following day, sitting around in the afternoon/evening drinking, not getting bored to the point where I do something instead of sit around with a beer.

Finally my wife got a new bike and has been pretty ambitious and so Iíll probably be doing some longer rides which will help, we went for a 45 mile ride yesterday and she wants to do more.

Best of luck to you all!

Good shit!  Where are you based out of?  I'm in MI, and we've had a few teases to Spring.  I've been out on my board 3 times over the last 5 or 6 weeks, and every time besides pushing and cruising, I feel like I haven't had enough reps to flip my board yet.  Looking forward to more consistent weather.

That said, I'm down about 5lbs at the moment, and the new job has my legs getting back under me.

Been consistently under 100 kg for a few days now, which has been sort of a barrier for at least a decade. Down 22 lbs since end of December. A rather slow process, however I am trying to lose weight in a way that will be sustainable in the long run. Never managed to sustain weight loss from more radical approaches, old habits were too tempting.

My skating is already benefiting a lot at this point. Skated 3-4 h sessions on four out of the last five days, which just wouldnít have been possible before. What surprises me most though is how it changes the way I move and keep my balance. I thought it would mostly give me the ability to jump higher, but everything feels smoother and more controlled at the same time. Keep it up everyone!

I track with lose it, I highly recommend that app but tracking in general is huge. Really makes you think how much youíre taking in and how to make decisions about what to take in a little better. That alone will be a huge help.

Yeah, WI here so northern Midwest as well, although I am in the southern part of the state so weíve had at least a handful of nice days.

My buddy asked me to join his rec league softball as they were short one person, itís pretty laid back sounding and should be fun to try something new so Iím stoked on that and it should help me stay active even if I get burned out on skating or biking which definitely happens at points

I feel like thereís some outside force constantly undoing any progress I make. Like itís totally me having no self control to turn things down, but Iíd rather blame other people. Today, I rode 40km fixed gear, ended the ride with 2 beers. Came home, Chinese lunch with the in-laws. Oh, they brought a delicious Bundt cake.

A guy I work with eats every other day. His fasting day he drinks coffee and bone broth to get by. He lost 70. I donít have that willpower and honestly it sounds horrible.

I wasnít able to lose weight for exactly this reason. None of the radical diets or fasting worked. Or if they did, Iíd bounce back in no time. Counting calories using an app did the trick for me. Itís a bit of an effort and nothing Iíd want to do forever, but for a limited time itís great. Even after a few weeks itís so revealing. For instance, I suspect the day you describe might be totally fine. Physical activities require a lot of energy. Itís when we donít move that we eat too much, especially if we want to lose weight. A beer is compensated by a 30 min walk, so there are always options to form habits that enable other habits.

Ok, I was totally lying to myself. I had to go to the doctor for a new job and he weighed me. At 6 foot I am almost 200 pounds. Thatís too heavy even though I feel I am in good shape right now. My pants fit oK and I work out twice a week plus I have been skating about three times per week. I think my prison home Workouts have really contributed to the weight gain as I have packed on extra muscle in my upper body. I will try to relax a bit with the dips and pull ups and I will do some portion control to cut some weight. And: no more beers, just white wine from now on.

A little less than 190 would be ideal for me. I am kind of a wide dude. At 6 foot tall that is not ideal for skating.

Down to 229 from 245 today. Still some way to go but think I found a formula.

No booze, low carb, mixed exercise like battle ropes, slam ball and core strength training.

Also, and I totally underestimated, getting up from my desk in the morning at 10am and getting a 15 min bike ride and a 10 minute core class in. Sitting all day is so damaging.

How's everyone else doing?

Heading into the week I was down 7 lbs with wind in my sales, but I was able to gain back 5 lbs since Last Sunday, which is amazingóweigh in before Easter dinner. I mean, I ate a good amount because Saturday because my father visited so I made a roast chicken with mashed potatoes and apple pie with Ben and Jerryís vanilla ice cream. IĎm pretty sure itís a false flag because I havenít eaten that rich since Easter Sunday. If I am by myself I donít eat that much but Iím a social eater and drinkeróalthough I havenít had beer since the summer cause I donít buy or drink beer at home. My biggest problem is if there is food available I can eat and eat and not feel full and psychologically I was raised, as many of you were, to do so as a show of respect to the people at the table. Or in a drinking setting I feel I have to match or outpace the people who I am drinking with. In my head consuming large amount of food or alcohol in a social setting puts the people I am with at ease and makes them feel happy I am there and is a sign of respect to the event. I know this is totally a learned behavior but I feel like as soon as I am put into these social situations I canít help but to eat and drink more than I need to. Iím sure Iíll be back down at next weeks weight in but just wanted to share something Iím sure many of you can relate to.

@GardenSkater77 bro of course sometimes I just sit and eat too, seriously who doesnít love eating

Depends on what tastes you like but sometimes just cut up a tomato with salt and pepper and just eat it straight up. Sometimes I eat a whole bunch of them that way or even a shit tonne of salad. But I have always liked veggies

Carrots are good too cut up so appears to be more than there is you could dip them in something

Or even popcorn just make it on stove and no butter or not a lot of butter. Still way less calories than the packet ones

Unsalted nuts too?

 we don't have a scale here but I'm slimming the fuck up. I've loosely followed the idea of intermittent fasting, not eating between 10pm and 2pm 5 days per week, with the 2pm thing really being between 12pm-2pm. The other 2 days, I usually do the same thing but sometimes it's nice to get a hooked up breakfast burrito or bagel. Other than this, I've paid attention to how much sugar and dairy I'm taking in.

Before my partner and I started living together about 3 years ago I very rarely bought snacks, dairy products, or cooked elaborate meals. She on the other hand likes to have at sweet snack every night, drinks milk, eats bread, eats cheese, eat late, etc. I never really did that until we cohabited. Pretty much rice, beans, lentils, veggies, tortilla for years, never really eating breakfast or a big dinner. So the past couple months I've mostly gotten back to my old ways. It's kinda weird but other than staples (rice, grains, spices, seasonings) and vegetables, we started buying separate groceries to cater to the way we like to eat individually. It's like if there's a bag of cookies or something, I have a hard time not eating it, but if it's not mine, I don't touch it. Pretty sweet deal.

Iíve always hated working out, basically the only excercise I ever did were skateboarding, BJJ and hiking.

However, something weird has happened in the last 3 weeks or so: I started messing around with kettlebells, and Iím really starting to like it. Right now my lower back is still a bit messed up and gyms are closed, so I canít skate or do BJJ. Trails are full of people so hiking kinda sucks right now.

Never thought Iíd like weightlifting, but here we are. Itís 9:30 am right now and canít wait to get home from work and work out. My core and upper back are starting to feel a bit stronger, so my lower back feels  better and Iím finally starting to have a good posture. Might feel confident enough to start skating again by the end of the month.

Also, Iíve been stretching for an hour everyday, whether I worked out or not. I can finally touch my toes with both hands without issues, something Iíve never really been able to do. The days I donít do KB are the days I ride my stationary bike (i still despise running), so Iím always active.

Not gonna lie, if it wasnít for this thread, my Kettlebell would have stayed right where it was: in the closet collecting dust and Iíd be getting baked eating Doritos drinking IPAís.

Iím not going to let this third lockdown get the better of me !

I fux with this thread.

So I lost 30lbs last year, lowest I weighed was 165 but usually sat around 170. I usedthe keto diet and felt great. But like a lot of people COVID hit and I binge ate and did no excercise and  I travel for work so having to not pay for meals made it easy to binge (I legit ate a meal for two people every night for like 6 months). Iíve had several failed starts in the last year to lose the weight again. But enough is enough going to lose 30lbs currently weigh 202. This time I wonít be doing keto, itís effective but itís super boring and not necessarily the healthiest. I plan to eat mostly Whole Foods, no breads, no pasta or junk food. No sugar, no alcohol and drink more water. Also planning to excercise 4 hours a week in addition to skating more. Little late to lose all the weight by summer but going to try and lose as much as I can. Iíll post progress.

Kettlebells are cool, I like to add variety with battle ropes and a slam ball. And there's a ton of core strength exercises with just body weight and maybe a light kettlebell, tons of YouTube videos. I got the Apple Fitness trial and it's actually quite good in terms of classes, even just for 10 minutes.

But yeah, adding some variety totally helps keep things interesting. Good luck!

Intermittent fasting, not eating too much junk food, calorie counting, and staying active (squeezing in extra skate sessions, riding my bike, walking) is what I do when I notice Iíve packed on a few pounds and need to slim up a bit. Usually works pretty good in melting away a few extra pounds.

another update: lost 2 more pounds on the "no snacking no beer no dessert" plan. Of course I break these rules occasionally but sticking to them at least 4-5 days a week seems to do the trick. My old pants are still a little bit tight but they fit again. 7 lbs of the 10 lb goal achieved.

I just stepped on the scale for the first time in a week, been trying to get down to 190 and was around 195 the last month, I weigh 193 right now. Iím getting closer.
Itís also been suuuuper humid this week and I have a fast paced outdoor job and sweat a lot on the really humid days. I think thatís been helping.
Iíve also still been hitting my apartment fitness room 4-5 days a week. I just do 15-20 min of working out my arms and shoulders. 5 different arm/shoulder reps then I get on the exercise bike and do a half mile then start the process over and do it 3 times total and that comes out to around 15 minutes.

Not to chime in out of nowhere, but was just thinking recently about how poorly I was living when I was super thin. Basically not eating, drinking 32 oz iced coffees all day long whenever I got hungry, staying out all night, etc. Then I grew up, and really only in the last couple of years have I started to bulk up in a way that I was not too psyched on.

I got an erg (rowing machine) and do 10k meters every morning. I really haven't lost any weight, but I feel so much stronger. I could definitely just fast, I'm pretty good at denying myself food, but I'd definitely rather get strong, up my endurance, etc. Definitely not getting back into those size 29 jeans anytime ever.

I need to loose more weight to tell you but my issue is because I have broken my left leg twice I now have varicose veins that stick out and make my left leg look twenty years older than my right. I have been 15 lbs lighter but that was 5 years ago and I donít remember the problem. But I have poor circulation in my left foot and before I go to a doctor I want to loose the 15 lbs. if I still have a problem I will get some sort of surgery but I want to see if weight loss will help the problemóI think it will help a little bit if not a lot.

Did not know it could affect the length. Was thinking more about the width and depth of my feet but that's interesting.

Anybody lose weight and notice their feet get more narrow or shallow? Was curious because fitting in my shoes better would motivate me further to do this damn thing.

Feet might be swollen due to water retention and dieting usually jettisons that first

I feel like all my fat goes straight to my neck and my face. Has anyone used diet pills? I'm exercising and eating well but if if there is something out there to expedite the process, I might be down.

These have some really good reviews. I plan on looking more into them but I just wanted to see if anybody has had first hand experience here

Gaining and losing weight does have an effect on shoe size and can even go up/down a whole size

Did not know it could affect the length. Was thinking more about the width and depth of my feet but that's interesting.

I need to loose more weight to tell you but my issue is because I have broken my left leg twice I now have varicose veins that stick out and make my left leg look twenty years older than my right. I have been 15 lbs lighter but that was 5 years ago and I donít remember the problem. But I have poor circulation in my left foot and before I go to a doctor I want to loose the 15 lbs. if I still have a problem I will get some sort of surgery but I want to see if weight loss will help the problemóI think it will help a little bit if not a lot.
[close]
Best of luck with everything. Hope surgery can be avoided after your weight loss!

I think it is best to think about the foot changes in a holistic manner.  Yes the width and height could increase, which may necessitate a different sized shoe.  Additionally, the additional weight (especially if it is extremely excessive weight) could make the arch fall a bit, which would manifest itself in the perceived lengthening of a foot.

I am basing this information on youtuber people who were extremely overweight then lost that weight (100+ pounds).  Very often they report that they went down a shoe size.

Just wanted to give a tip to those who have had problems cutting out junk food like I did at first.

I made a list of everything I should cut: Chips, dessert, pastries, fast food, gas station food, french fries, sugar in my coffee, chocolate and frozen food. I allow myself a few beers a week because Iím already not much of a drinker and perhaps one takeout meal (which I rarely do anyways).

I then downloaded an AA/NA-type app called Sober Time. You know those apps that tell you ďyou have 62 days cleanĒ ? That. This one lets you put in what your addiction is, I just titled my addiction as ďJunk Food From the ListĒ. Iím 28 days ďcleanĒ from everything on that list, and I find it a hell of a lot more motivating than simply counting calories, which I do, just not religiously.

I was at the gas station the other day and Doritos were on special (Doritos and I have a long history), I almost picked up a bag but looked at my phone, I then left it there. Didnít want to fuck my streak up.

Might not seem like much, but itís the longest Iíve ever gone without shit food. Might work for some of you.

My problem with Doritos is the second I leave the store, no matter the size of the bag, it has about 15 minutes left to live. I have zero control when it comes to Doritos.

There's no such thing as leftover crack Doritos.

I know this is the weight loss club but fuck it one of my favorite snacks ever is plain sour cream and regular Doritos. You donít even need dip because the flavor comes from the Doritos. Holy shit is that good. I havenít had Doritos in two months. I like you cannot be trusted with a bag of Doritos.

Iím doing keto and Iíve lost 50 lbs in 3 months.   I had surgeries and bad bouts of depression that knocked me on my ass for too long and I was definitely eating only poor choices for awhile, so the quick results may be just from not doing that at all anymore.   But I think itís a fairly easy diet to maintain and the weight loss has had very little to do with exercise.   It also depends on what you think your mileage is eating eggs near every day

I couldn't tell you how much weight I've lost but none of my pants fit anymore and it's pretty evident under the chin, the rear cheeks, and spare tire/love handle area. "Intermittent Fasting" and watching calorie intake, especially sugar intake, has been very helpful and not all that hard. I'm not wicked strict, but I generally don't eat food between 10pm-2pm. On the ideal day I, after I stretch and meditate, I start drinking black coffee, usually a 16 oz cup, then have a hyped up protein shake at 2pm (2 bananas, 2 scoop PBFit peanut butter powder, 1 scoop plant protein, 1 scoop marine collagen, medicinal mushrooms, rice milk, ice, water). Often have another cup of black coffee at 3 or 4pm, then Ill either a can of sardines with pepper sauce and liquid aminos or a couple eggs in a wrap with some miso mayo, nutritional yeast, maybe some leftover beans. Around 6-7 we eat dinner, often eggs, rice, beans, noodles, lots of veggies, meat a couple times per month. After that, I might have some rice cakes for a snack around 9pm. I like a nighttime snack and try to limit the good treats to once per week. Hardest thing to avoid is the delicious fresh sour dough my partner makes... lil bit of butter, lil bit of homemade jam...

anyways, those pills could be fine but they seem like heavy duty caffeine pills, lots of green tea and straight caffeine. I guess if you can handle it, it's cool but I really have no clue other than caffeine acting as an appetite suppressant.

Half way mark.

How is everyone doing? Care to share?

I had a good March but April basically was a no go.

I am basically fluctuating at 5 lb loss +/- 2 lbs, so my goal of a 20 lb loss may not be realistic. But I am not hitting the reset button. Just need to tighten up the diet and be more active. One week at a time...

I plan on keeping my calories below 1500 and sodium under 1500(idk if that's a good number)
I really don't like cooking so if anyone has fast and healthy food ideas, I'm all ears. A protein shake and sardines might be a good idea to incorporate into the rotation. This is what I'm eating and plan on eating.

Breakfast: 3 eggs
Lunch: low fat greek yogurt and 1/4 cup of granola
Dinner: broccoli and chicken, broccoli and salmon, or steak and salad

A dope meal for me is just a simple salad of romaine, kalamata olives, bit of feta if you like and protein of choice I've done chicken and Gyro meat both are dope. I make a simple olive oil/herb dressing, can't recall the quantities of each ingredient, but its olive oil, oregano, garlic, this Italian seasoning I got at the store, think that's it. I had a similar salad at a greek restaurant on a work trip and it was amazing, I have been trying to recreate it ever since.

Down 15 pounds since the start. Cut down booze except for the occasional martini or shot of vodka, no beers though.

For breakfast it's either scrambled eggs or a spinach/banana/pineapple smoothie and a salad with salmon for lunch. Still need to cut out more carbs and love a bagel on the weekend too much. But hey, making some progress.

15 LBS is fuckiní great bro. Are you kidding me? I would say youíre at a fast pace.

I am still trying to find a meal plan that wonít leave me needing to eat because I have the shakes or a headache from not eating enough. I wish I liked eggs and chicken but I really donít. The hardest part for me is cutting out sandwiches and pasta cause they are such an easy meal. Still looking for that meal that I look forward to eating that is low fat high protein.

Thanks for your nice words. I have to say that I was already exercising daily and had a pretty good diet. Just sabotaging myself by drinking too much beer on weekends (which is 3 days out of 7 in a week and adds up), and also 'rewarding' myself with junk food too much. I'm not 100% disciplined but the results really make me want to push forward.

Have you tried snacking on almonds, cold cuts like salami or turkey breast and string cheese when you get the need for food? I hear you about pasta and sandwiches, though... The one thing I can eat every day for lunch without getting tired is a bowl of spinach with a Costco salmon burger and some avocado or whatever else is around. Once you find that 'everyday' meal you have a big piece of the puzzle. Good luck!

i missed jumping in on this when it started but just set a goal for myself to lose 15 lbs for my summer holiday that starts mid august.

i wanted to share a recent success i had in weight loss. if you are looking for a diet i tried weight watchers at the beginning of the year and it's a really great program. i did myfitness pal for years before and i've worked out really hard for years doing things like orange theory, mountain biking, etc... and burning 900 calories a pop 5 times a week but always broke even and then eventually have a few off weeks and gain 2 or so lbs that never go away. with weight watchers i was able to drop 12 lbs in about 6 weeks shown below from beginning of jan to mid feb. no other diet has allowed me to move the needle like that and i was having beers and fun food on the weekend while doing this.

(https://i.ibb.co/qJbf0D2/weight.png) (https://ibb.co/CPxZJwS)

it definitely gives you control, works if you follow it and is super flexible as you have a weekly budget to use and you can use it on whatever you choose so nothing is off limits.

if you workout at home fitbod app is also definitely worth checking out. you get 3 free workouts with it, it's fantastic. you tell it what equipment you have and it creates workouts for you each day.

I haven't been keeping track of actual weight loss because I don't own a scale but I've really adjusted my diet and been more mindful of my eating, haven't had a beer in about a month and a half (sticking to the occasional whiskey and water if I'm at the bar) and have been riding about 10-15 miles a day 4-5 days a week on my bike. My pants are fitting looser, my legs are feeling stronger than ever and I'm feeling more and more comfortable on my board when I do get to skate.

Hope everybody's journey is also going well.

ayo, i imagine that's a big initial loss, hoss! I was at 165lbs (75kg) @5'8 (179cm) and it took a hot minute to start dropping anything at all. Once it the elbows/keys start dropping, they keep dropping. I look forward to seeing your lighter bank/tech skating dude!

Also, on another note, man, we get these occasional SLAP haters and people flapping their jaws about how this place is a cesspool, but fuckin hell, we're a mix of all types of people helping each other get physically and mentally well during a crazy motherfucking era and still talking about skating. that's fucking sick. big ups to everyone 8) ;D ;) :) :D

I just stepped on the scale and to my great surprise it stopped at 72kg (158lbs). I was 75/76 before (165/167lbs) at 170cm/5'6. I am truly stoked about this and this thread played a huge role in this success.

At first I looked at it as a joke (I didn't even make a pledge), but as y'all kept on posting your weight loss I felt challenged and started really watching my diet, cutting out sugar and fat.

Thanks to one and all for participating, I'll say it once again, Slap rules!

I took 2 weeks and only ate potatoís.  Lost 18 pounds. It really wasnít that bad because potatoes fill you up really well. After that I had a day off every week and now I eat potatoes/oatmeal/apples every other day to maintain. Iím 40 and it has given me my life/skating/ good vibes back. Be well everyone!

Weighed myself yesterday, 205 fully dressed with shoes on, so probably in the 202-203 range.

I was 217 in mid March. Less than ten lbs left to hit 195.

Once I hit 195, Iím probably going to try to go down to around 185-188, which I havenít been since 2013-2014 and thatís where I feel at my best. I have a big frame with broad shoulders, so anything under 180 makes me look like a cancer patient. Even at 217 I didnít have a double chin.

Havenít been under 200 in 6 years.

Down 25 lbs now since the beginning of the year. Last few pounds have made a big difference, in combination with some relentless skating. I have not been popping Ollies with this sort of confidence for at least 10 years. Warming up at a park has gone from a depressing exercise to joyful cruising and popping over smaller obstacles. I can also take some heavy slams and be back on the board after a few days of resting. I've been skating for 30 years and I feel like I am actually progressing again. Skateboarding really saved me during this fucking pandemic.

There's a new book out called "Hooked," written by Michael Moss, a former NYTimes Pulitzer Prize winner... It explores contemporary humans relationship with processed food, additives, and the corporations that make money from our seemingly unstoppable desire for their foods. Things that most of us have no idea about are brought up- really interesting stuff about the drive for fats, sugars, and salts, genetic manipulation, similarities between food industry and tobacco industry. He uses the phrase "disordered eating," not in regard to eating disorders, but rather addicted and manipulated eating that seems to be the greatest cause of weight gain and obesity related health issues.

It was pretty quick to read and if nothing else, provided me with further understanding and drive to eat/live in a way that feels better on the whole. Check it out if you want a social/scientific understanding laid out

I bought a peloton yesterday. Itíll be here on the third. I figure itíll get me moving, since I wonít have an excuse, itíll be in my garage. I few of my buddies have them and itíll be fun I think to have some competitive aspect to it.

Iím happy for you. I am doing terrible. I have decided that I have to skateboard every day at lunch if I want to loose more than the 5 lbs I canít seem to get past. My spot is .7 miles from my house so I skate there and back and skate for 20-30 minutes and come home. Iím sore as hell but Iím hoping if I keep doing this something will click and I will start being able to land tricks I canít anymore. The goal for me was to enjoy skateboarding more so Iím just trying to push through. Also trying to ride bikes with my son but he is 8 so I donít really break a sweat.

Thanks for checking in.

The goal for me was to enjoy skateboarding more so Iím just trying to push through. Also trying to ride bikes with my son but he is 8 so I donít really break a sweat.

Thanks for checking in.

What helps me is Iíve got a physical job and move a lot during the day, some days I can walk up to 9-10km a day just at work.  I also take a walk every night. Other than that itís all diet and cutting out the nasty shitÖ oh and water, a shit ton of water.

With the warm weather coming back I think youíll be able to shed those remaining pounds easily if you skate enough. If youíre too sore you can go for a good cruise around the hood as well.

I got back into skating after two months off but blew my back out again on Saturday plugging in my PS4 controller (I knowÖ), so Iím probably going to have to stop skating a while, maybe stop skating altogether unfortunately. My back is so fucked.

Iím at a point now where everyday Iím really looking forward to working out and exercising.
I work mostly outside at my job and itís super humid and hot so I sweat a ton, but itís also been slow at work the last couple weeks so I do simple arm and shoulder work outs when I have downtime at work.

I just stepped on the scale and Iím 185.5 (after drinking two bottles of water and dropping my morning deuce).

Iíve been eating less fast food this week.
I bought chicken, broccoli, and carrot meals from my local grocery store, Iím trying to cut down on French fries and fried foods.
My apartments finally fixed the lock on the gym so it can be accessed 24/7, which is nice. I usually have to rush home after work to get in my work out because it was only open when the office was open.

When I started working out a month or two back, I was doing 15 minutes, then I got to 20, 30, yesterday I did 50 minutes.
I think if I buy more of these meal prep dinner, I can get down to 180 in like two more weeks.

I also bought some good pre workout from a local shop.
I have a friend who skates but also is pretty buff from working out a ton and I got the pre workout that he recommended, he also works there at the supplement shop and gave me a little bit of a discount (which was pretty nice of him).
I hope everyone else is doing well!

Iíve only skated once in the past month but I plan on skating on my days off from work this week. My right knee has been a little tweaked (I slipped at work about a month ago and something went wonky in my knee) and itís been raining a ton this month. I think all the time on the exercise bike is helping my knee get stronger, at least I hope it is haha.

I just had a major reminder that consistency is the key to this game.

I was 25 lb down from where I started and easily rebounded 7lb over a long weekend. Had some friends in town, ate tons of carbs, grilled out a bunch, lotta martinis... Didn't work out while they were here, had too many beers.

Now back on my routine of working out twice per day, limiting carbs and junk food and no booze. I just have to realize that overdoing it on drinks and calories is not having a 'fun time'.

Anyhow, anyone on here who slips and hits a wall. It's just a setback. It's all about the long run and healthy habits. Stay up!

Well my dudes, finally weighed in and am close to the end goal. Last weighed at doctor's office was 166 in mid January and I came in at 145 with a full belly yesterday. When I was at peak fitness and mobility 10 years ago, I clocked in at 137 and that's where I'd like to be.

Haven't been crazy active compares to usual, but changing my eating habits/patterns has been key. Cut back on pastries/baked goods, cut out peanut butter, cut down on dairy, really paying attention to added sugars/sweeteners, not eating between 11pm-1pm. I feel good and if in that time frame I need to eat, I eat. I really think cutting out the processed food has been huge. Lots of eggs, beans, rice, salad. Eat out no more than 1x week. Sorry for the rambling. Y'all got this shit

I'm down to 215lbs from 240lbs. It feels good. I stopped drinking during the month of June to try to get down to my target weight of 205lbs (though I seem to have encountered a bit of a plateau these past few days, hoping it is just a small obstacle).

Not drinking hasn't been much of a problem except when I pass my local tavern on the way home, especially now that things have opened up. I feel like Dicky at the end of "The Fighter" when he drops the birthday cake of at the crackhouse then licks the frosting of his finger as he walks away. But I am determined to stay steadfast in my resolve and continue making healthy decisions.

Hope all of you are getting close to your weight goals as well.

Edit: I find it pretty insane that the "ideal weight" for a 6'1" man is deemed to be 188lbs. Haven't been that in many, many moons. But when I hit 205, I can see how I feel about going further.

I don't know if I ever posted in here or not, but I'm down about 10 lbs over the past 3 months.  It's like skating with a gallon of milk worth of body fat gone. 

I haven't done anything wild, mainly I've been commuting by bike whenever it's reasonable.  I cook alot of vegetarian meals as well.  Lots of sweet potato and sauteed veggies.

I am now 70kg/154lbs, used to be 75/165. I am happy with the weight now but have to transform some of the remaining body matter into muscles. I have started doing sit-ups but yesterday hurt my tailbone so I have to take a break from that for a few days.

Do you guys have any other tips on how to get a flat stomach without hitting the gym?

Forearm planks ;D 60 seconds, 5x, 2x/day will help.

and really, the flatness comes as more body fat peels away. Spine curvature and posture also effect the appearance of a flat stomach. You ever seen dudes with 6pack abs but sort of a belly? Its not always due to fat per say, but rather how they hold themselves upright

I found most of the weight I lost, I think. Or it at least feels that. Honestly, Iím too scared to hop on the scale and check. But my pop has been arguably the same since I lost the weight, but while my wife was out of town I ate like garbage and fucking hate myself for it. This shits causing me to be pretty bummed out lately, not gonna lie pals.

Donít beat yourself up bro. I thought posting this thread would give me a better chance at loosing my goal weight but Iím near about as fat as when I started. Turns out I have very little will power.

The positive is that I have skated more in the last month than I have in 12 years (since before the birth of my daughter) and it is all street. Before I couldnít skate for an hour without wanting to stop and now I can go out for a two hour session w/o sitting down. Granted, Iím mostly pushing and ollieing but I feel much better on my board.

I realize that the only physical exercise I can bring myself to do is skateboarding. So my goal is to keep skating as much as I can and try to eat better.

Happy for @Thom

Hell yeah, bro! Forearm planks with palms flat on the floor, rather than fists or whatever, help the work happen in the core as opposed to using your fist/wrist/arms to hold you up. Try em both and see the difference.

Also, regarding keeping it off, what helps me is seeing it all as a lifestyle switch. Its a little bit od work but its a real thing.

Anyone here into swimming laps for getting in better shape ? They just built a brand-new aquatic centre about 2km from my house and Iím curious.

Been injured for almost a month, the weight I lost is coming back due to a lack of activity and honestly, a shitty comfort food-based diet and itís driving me mad.

Once my back gets in better shape Iím going to go swim some laps because I fucking hate running.

I think swimming is the best exercise to add to skateboarding. Easy on the joints, utilizes the full body, can be done at a slow pace to burn fat. Also, refreshing, kind of meditative, puts you in a good headspace, especially in the morning. Just take it easy at the beginning, maybe follow some instructions about how to start out. Itís very easy to overdo, you wonít feel exhaustion in the same way as with skating or running. First time I went I did a fast-paced 30 mins and almost dropped to the floor as I was getting out of the water. Didnít feel that coming at all while swimming.

Iíve been stuck around 187lbs the last few weeks, but since Iím going to the gym 6 days a week and doing intense cardio and lots of weight lifting, I can see the muscle growth in my arms and shoulders, so Iím hoping/assuming the reason I havenít lost weight is because Iím building muscle while losing fat.

I've been doing the planks every evening, at first I couldn't even do five X 1 min. but now I got them.

The weight is still down at 70 kilo, trying to burn some of that lower belly fat.

Anyhow, I had to go to the tailor today to have all my suits tightened as they are looking as baggy as a mid 90ies skate outfit on my new skinny body. That's gonna cost me a grand, thanks Slap  ;D

Thinking why not. I need to really work on my core and posture, on top of everything else thatís wrong with me old ass. I just donít know what to do, and Iím intimidated by gyms. $15 is cheaper than setting up a home gym like I was planning on, and itíll save space in the garage for other stuff.

Heck ya, bud! I got into those forearm planks when I was practicing Hatha Yoga with my 70+ year old teacher and her group of 70+ year old gals. Man, they'd be holding forearm planks for 2minutes, 5-7 sets. The trick was she would be talking and telling stories to distract us. Anyways, glad you have them in your repertoire!

I understand feeling intimidated by the gym but itís def a good place to go.
Getting my planet fitness membership is the best thing that had happened for me trying to build muscle and burn fat. It could be great help for you too.
Iíve also been watching a lot of videos on which weight lifting stuff is best for what I want and common technique mistakes to avoid. Which has been a good help for me.

Managed to get to and stay at 12 pounds down the week leading up to my wedding which was a month ago, so goal achieved. Added a couple pounds on since then but hanging around 10 lbs lost and overall feeling so much better than I was 5-6 months ago.

Still doing strength 5x a week, stretching/yoga 3x, and riding my bike around 70-80 miles/week. My power while biking has gone up a ton and I'm feeling more comfortable and balanced on the board whenever I go to the park or my local curb.

This weight loss/fitness journey has been a super positive change for me, and it's been a blast to do it with some virtual buddies whose real names I don't know and who I'll likely never meet in person.

yo dawg, if you are tryna put on arm muscle, push ups are the way to go imo. you can start with as many as you can do without being totally gassed, track the #, and move up by whatever number you feel is appropriate when you feel is appropriate. you'll get more definition than just Popeye biceps. after pushups get comfortable enough, you can move onto pull-ups and/or chair dips. what makes these, for me, better than lifting, is the convenience- I can just drop and do a set of pushups anytime, anywhere in my house, yard, etc. I've got a pullup bar outside the house that I try to do just 3 on each time I go outside. Good luck G

Push ups and chin ups are my go to for body weight fitness, interval training is my jam. Same applies to running, I don't do runs longer than 5k, just intervals runs of 400m at a 4k cap.

Do 60-70% of your max, take a break and repeat 2-3 times depending on how pumped you feel. During last year I was able to push my max chin ups to 28 but breaking past this to 30 takes so much commitment.

Iíve been doing push ups the last couple weeks at home and when I have down time at work, in addition to the weight lifting I do at the gym.
My arms arenít big yet but in person they are noticeably different compared to a few months ago.
I usually do 4-5 sets of ten push ups if I have the time at work.
But just 1 or 2 sets when Iím at home, I usually donít have a ton of energy left when Iím at home after work because I go to the gym almost everyday after and in the mornings on my days off.

Also like Iíve mentioned before, my weight has stayed the same the last month but I can tell that Iím burning fat because my man boobs are also getting smaller when I stand in front of the mirror.
My routine has been pretty simple, I do 10 min on the bike on hard hill setting, then lift various weights for biceps, triceps, shoulders, and back. Then I get back on the bike for 10 min on a harder hill setting and I repeat that 4 times. So 40 min on the bike 6 days a week which comes out to 13 miles and the rest of my time at the gym is lifting weights or using the battle rope.
I take 1 easy day a week and just do 30 min on the bike and donít do as much weight lifting in between.

Push ups and chin ups are my go to for body weight fitness, interval training is my jam. Same applies to running, I don't do runs longer than 5k, just intervals runs of 400m at a 4k cap.

Do 60-70% of your max, take a break and repeat 2-3 times depending on how pumped you feel. During last year I was able to push my max chin ups to 28 but breaking past this to 30 takes so much commitment.
[close]
Iíve been doing push ups the last couple weeks at home and when I have down time at work, in addition to the weight lifting I do at the gym.
My arms arenít big yet but in person they are noticeably different compared to a few months ago.
I usually do 4-5 sets of ten push ups if I have the time at work.
But just 1 or 2 sets when Iím at home, I usually donít have a ton of energy left when Iím at home after work because I go to the gym almost everyday after and in the mornings on my days off.

Also like Iíve mentioned before, my weight has stayed the same the last month but I can tell that Iím burning fat because my man boobs are also noticeably smaller.

The body weight exercise musculature takes a while to be noticeable in photos at first, but if you were to take black n white photos, you'd see differences, for sure. My partner modeled for a long time and models/photogs have all sorts of lighting knowledge to get photos/body/muscles looking a certain way. I think you're looking great BTW. Def see a visible difference in your skate clips and shit. Ha ha ha and the decline of man boobs feels good, don't it? Don't have to roll the shoulders back to make "pecs"  ;D

Good work my G

I am down to 68kg from 75kg, that's 15lbs in 5 months or so. The only thing I really changed was to cut out sugar and unhealthy fat from my diet consequently. It's not always easy to resist but it's worth it.  I am also still doing the forearm planks and I like the results, so shout out to @IusedToSkateMore

I am super stoked at this and would never have thought it would be possible, and it wouldn't if it wasn't for you guys. Thanks!

After two and a half months of doing absolutely nothing due to a back injury, Iíve finally started moving again. This is my third week of BJJ since stopping in March (lockdown)  and while the first two weeks were fucking rough, my cardioís back and Iím starting to feel good. Iím averaging 3-4x/week + a bit of mellow skating. My back feels great and my flexibility seems to be getting better.

I went from 217 to 201 before my injury, got injured and got back to 215. Iím going to weigh myself in a month and see. Goal is still 195, ideally 188-190.

Still having trouble staying disciplined on proper eatiing though.

Thanks, fakie nollie. Mostly through diet. Still making my homemade soups and supplementing every solid meal with a healthy bed of lettuce and veggies, essentially turning it into a salad. Still no pizza, burritos or candies (or other unhealthy stuff) and very limited alcohol intake. I have about 10 lbs to go still and will then focus on building up muscle. All told, I've lost about 45 lbs since November.

Hereís a pic with an update of my progress.
I just weighed myself and im 188.
184 was my lowest weight. I really wanna get down to 180 but Iíve been taking in more calories (protein powder)
this last month to try and help build muscle.
The left pic is before I started going to the gym.

Keep going yíall! We can make ourselves better and healthier, we just gotta keep the work up.

That's a good start. Cutting sugar is crucial in my opinion. I initially cut dairy too, but if you're going plant based that's what's up. I think for me, the most important component of losing weight, I dropped 25ish lbs, was changing not just what I eat, but when I eat. I'm not sold on the whole premise of intermittent fasting, but 5 days a week i don't really eat between 10pm-2pm. Between 2 and 10, I eat well with no calorie deficit, but still keep out most of the processed sugars. First couple months were slow but now it feels like I've reached a new baseline. I'm not incredibly active right now, at all, either. So im just trying to say that it might take a while but the weight loss comes if u stick at it

115kgs to 108kgs at 6ft'1 over the past 7 weeks.
I've had a broken hand the whole time and was genuinely scared of getting heavier but what I've been doing is

water only
3-4 egg omelette for breaky.  Easy, fast and doctors suggested me a protein based breakfast. 
Tuna 185 gram can for lunch.  Seriously,  Neil Breen knows!
Dinner usually chicken breast (add basic herbs) or a lamp chop with small veg portion.

It's pretty bland but it's working good.

Yeah man I 100% agree with the timing. I lost 50 lbs once by quitting drinking and only eating between noon and 6. This time I am not putting that much pressure on it though. My downfall now is getting stoned and making crazy veggie burgers late at night. I really should stop that.. I have completely cut out alcohol and processed sugar along with the plant based diet and have been heavily active lately. So I imagine the results will keep coming. I skate for about 3 hours almost nonstop 5-6 days a week now too. My skating hasn't improved much so the weight better keep coming off  ;D I appreciate the support homey! 5 oh 8

I was visiting my family for 2 weeks and had to eat all of my favorite home-town foods... which means the pants I wore on the plane there fit much much tighter on the way back.

I gotta dial it in.

Cooler weather means more skating. And less desire to go sit outside at a bar and drink beer and eat chips.

Yeah nice for being off the sauce for two months. Keep it going now and don't go back. I stopped drinking two years ago and it's been good for me.

I know the midnight cravings and used to give in but now I just ignore it. It's obvious but if you go to bed hungry the body will burn body fat during the night. If you eat something just before going to sleep he will just burn that stuff instead. It sucks but you get used to it somehow.

On another note I just realized that my blood pressure has dropped significantly since I last measured it, which was before I started to lose weight. Back when I was heavier and drinking, I always used to have a blood pressure of at least 140, which is too high. Now 20lbs lighter (and not drinking) I am at 130, which is just ok.

Down to 195 so I've officially lost 50 lbs since the beginning of the year. Haven't skated in a few months but looking forward to seeing what it's like without a 50 pound bag of fat on me.

I know the midnight cravings and used to give in but now I just ignore it. It's obvious but if you go to bed hungry the body will burn body fat during the night. If you eat something just before going to sleep he will just burn that stuff instead. It sucks but you get used to it somehow.

Ditto to both those things. I used to find myself breathing heavily while just chilling and that stopped. It must be related to blood pressure.

Haven't weighed myself since I broke my scale (don't drop heavy Wahl clippers on your cheap glass scale), so it's been about two months.

I've been doing a ton of BJJ and hiking lately and it's starting to pay off. Yesterday at work, I went to grab something over my head with both hands and straight-up lost my pants right in front of my foreman. I now need a belt. I've been a 36 forever and they just slid right down to my ankles, I finally need a belt. Stoked. T-shirts feel looser now as well, my jeans feel much looser as well.

Since Covid started: 210 -> 205 -> 202.1 -> 208 -> 222 (back injury which pretty much made me do nothing but chill from May to late August) -> Lost pants at work.

I think I'll stop obsessing with the scale and just focus on what feels right, like looser clothes and doing a ton of jiu-jitsu.

At 205 lbs right now, closing in on my goal to get down to 200 lbs from 240 lbs since December (6'5" tall). My diet had already been pretty balanced but also included some treats like wine, chocolate, pizza and the occasional burger. Didnít want to drop any of that. Just too much of everything, all the time. Thus counting calories using an app has been working great for me, despite being annoying at times.

Have been reducing around 500 kcal per day, with calories burned through activity added to the budget. Tried reducing more last months and paradoxically hit a plateau. Back to 500 kcal reduction per day now and consistently dropping a little more than a pound per week. Can definitely recommend counting calories if you are generally happy with your diet and just need to learn how much of everything you actually need.

I also hit a plateau at 145lbs (originally 165lbs in March). I'd like to go down just a little bit more (or at least burn a little bit more body fat) but I am very happy to have gone so far. I haven't been counting calories, just stopped eating unhealthy stuff. Other than skating on the weekends, I've been working out a little bit every day (forearm planks and reverse sit ups) and the abs are showing. I have gone down from 34 waist to 31 and instead of XL/comfort fit I wear M/slim fit shirts. I am in the best shape probably ever. There are sacrifices associated with it but I am so stoked I got rid of my beer belly.  It takes some discipline but it's totally worthy if you are unhappy with your current shape.

I have Slap and the dudes in this thread to thank for motivating me to finally to do something about my weight. It was about time. In particular for old dudes like me, there is a point of no return at a certain age/stage where it becomes very difficult to change I guess.

Edit: This thread is also great to watch progress if you post regularly. I was able to reestablish my progress with my posts in this thread:

28 March: Start the diet at 75kg
15 May: 70kg
21 June: 70kg - start planks
25 July: 68kg
30 Aug: 66kg

I was down a pretty significant amount, then got a torn hammy in May. Since then, I gradually gained back almost everything. Pretty bummed but getting back on track now. Thanks to a few pals here who are an awesome support system

Stoked for you! I'm down 30lb since hitting my highest weight ever last year. I'm 6'4" and now at 218lb. Still a bit of a ways to go but took a month of alcohol again and that's helping a lot. Also learned a lot about portion control.

Great work everyone and THANKS FOR THE MOTIVATION, SLAPPERS!

Update: As of this morning I am up to 219 lbs! I tried to get down to 200, but I found it way easier to head for 220. Ironically I am skating better although Im getting heavier and skating way less. Seriously though good for you guys for actually doing the right thing, shows how driven you all are. Thank goodness for hard bushings.

Just started Intermittent fasting a couple weeks ago.  Be been finding it impossible to lose weight, so hoping this helps.  I skate 1-3 hours a day, swim laps 2-4x a week (1500-2500 meters), and the scale just doesnít move.  Literally the same as if I was sitting on my ass stuffing my face and sleeping all day.  Iím on antidepressants, so I think that might have something to do with it, but I still thought I would see meaningful progress considering all the work Iíve been putting in

What diet are you on, as in what do you eat/drink and what not? I donít think that the anti depressants per se make you put on weight but some of them make you hungry and you will eat more (I might be wrong).

I ask because physical exercise did not help me to lose weight, onky a drastic change of my diet did.

Wow, good shit everyone, and everyone who's struggling, hang in there!

I have a weird story.  I certainly didn't get there by July, it mostly occurred recently in the late summer, early fall months...

I had to quarantine for 4 weeks in June.  My roommate and girlfriend caught the rona, but I never tested positive.  Shortly after getting back to work, I got a promotion as a night manager at the dispensary I work at.  Between more responsibility, less time to eat, and being back on my feet, I lost 20lbs in 3-4 weeks.  When this thread started I was at 219-220.

I very recently cut out alcohol, and in just about 2 weeks, I've gotten down to 192.  My 38th birthday is coming up, and while I haven't been able to skate (weird hours, most of my skate friends are on the 9-5 thing), I'm stoked to have a bday sesh this Sunday with some friends.  Can't wait to see how I feel on board.

Good shit, Pals.

Totally unrelated to covid, but I started smoking weed again over the summer and lost 20 pounds pretty quickly. It basically solved my eating out of boredom habit and between actually enjoying eating again and there being 2 dispensaries on the same block as giant eagle has lead to me shopping for fresh groceries more regularly instead of just pounding easy mac and uncrustables from the Walgreens around the corner. It's made skating much more enjoyable and less painful and I've definitely been getting more attention from the hags at work.

One of the best changes I made was swapping chips or other salty/savory snacks for seaweed roasted in sesame or avocado oil. You can get huge sheets of it or precut snack packs and its cheap, filling, nutritious, and delicious. A good bit of sodium though so if you have issues with that they do make unsalted ones but the taste can be unappealing.

Some sativa strains are more effective an appetite suppressant than nicotine or caffeine for me. When I first got my card I was almost exclusively using sativas because I didn't really know much other than i like sweet and piney weed. Now that I've learned a lot more about different terpenes and my own body and what works I've been using those strains early in the morning and then tapering off into more indica leaning strains which do stimulate my appetite. So between not eating as much and then having healthier munchies the weight just kind of fell off. It made me realize this is probably my natural weight and I've been walking around overweight but not really noticing because I didn't look "fat".

When you do get your card if you want to learn about terpenes and the biochemistry of cannabis or choosing a strain feel free to hit me up. There's a ton of good information and resources online but the most important thing to remember is that everyone is different and what does one thing to you might do something totally different to someone else. It's kind of like skate gear... You may have to experiment for a while until you find the one that fits you best.

unless it's at night and I'm ripping indica, weed and coffee suppress my appetite like crazy. no joke. I'm not saying it's all related, but since last February I've been on the mushroom microdose, small amount of THC candy, and coffee most mornings, I've dropped down from 165ish to staying at 140ish since May or so. Dropping those unexpected lbs really makes ya feel better all around.

Congrats to everyone on this thread. SLAP is killing it on this health mission.
I've been having a difficult time getting started with a regimen but I've been trying to exercise before and after work, and eat better with portion control and intermittent fasting. The hunger gets me so psycho sometimes though and it can make my attitude HALT piss poor.
I've recently been weighing myself twice a week and I'm lost around 6 lbs, which I'm psyched about, but  I'm trying to get some strength/muscle going. I got doughy after I broke my ankle.
Before work I ride my exercise bike and do some active stretches. At work I try to run up and down the stairs several times a day and sneak off and do pt cardio. I try to do more stuff after work but I'm usually too tired.
The hardest parts lately have been getting motivated to exercise. After work its especially difficult and I just want to curl up and watch 30 Rock. That might be winter depression though. Like in a box.
Also I struggle with snacking on candy at bedtime. For some reason I get ravenous when I'm getting ready to drift off and nothing in my fridge is safe.
Any of you found tools/skills to help curb the late night sweet tooth?

You need a hard withdrawal. Get rid of all unhealthy stuff so if you have a craving there will be only healthy stuff, rice waffles, a carrot, a spoonful of peanut butterÖ

Do the exercise right when you get home first thing, before settling on the couch or getting comfy.

You made a good start, donĎt give in.

Thats good advice. I've got so little self discipline with food, but luckily the fancy "organic" Reeses I bought taste like chalk, so I'm going to try and set up some pre-arranged healthier night snacks.

Exercising before work and after work is too much. If you want muscle and strength you only need to exercise 3 times a week if that

You need calories to build muscle so you might be starving yourself more than you think. It's defeating and it causes people to quit

Do your strength training in the morning if it's calisthenics, bands or weights (2 to 5 times a week) and go for a 20+ minute walk or skate after work for a stress reliever everyday (even if you don't feel stressed)

Keep making healthy choices with your food but try to get near a gram of protein per pound of body weight and forget about weighing yourself the next 12 weeks

I've lost 43 pounds this year while gaining 10 pounds multiple times. Diet periodization works the best for me

hey friend. it's hard to get started. I really began losing the LBs when I was also on my ass from an ankle injury last winter. It was changing up my relationship with food. I didn't weight myself from January til May and was really surprised. I feel like weighing oneself numerous times per week can lead to unreasonable expectations- there are days when, if I'm constipated and at a big meal, I'll weigh 4-5lbs more than the day before... just saying.

My biggest source of additional fat was peanut butter. No joke. I have a fixed up shake for lunch most days and I'd put 2-3 big globs of sugar free peanut butter in there. I'd eat that shit off the spoon like a candy bar... too much of a good thing isn't good anymore, feel me?

a great, hooked up meal replacement shake goes like this for me:

1/3 scoop plant based protein (whole scoop leaves me bloated)
1 TBSP hemp seeds (lots of easily digestible protein)
2 TBSP PB2 Powdered Peanut butter (no sugar, 1.5g fat, 12% daily protein)
1 TBSP Lions Mane mushroom powder
1.5 Whole Frozen Banana
1/2 cup plain coconut milk (watch for added sugars)
rest of cup filled with h2o and ice

TBH, I can drink half of this at 130pm and feel satisfied until dinner most days. The start up costs are kind of expensive up front, protein, hemp seeds, etc, but it ends up being a $2-3 meal, which isn't too bad in my opinion considering how much eating out or making a bagged lunch costs.

As for exercise, I know we're all different, but start slow and easy. I've been running regularly again after Covid, it's been 12 weeks now. Rather than tying to hoof it hard, I've been doing the same 1.1 mile loop 4 days, a different 2.2 mile loop 2 days, and a day off. It's about sustainability for me. Going hard 1 or 2 days and feeling like ass the rest of the time doesn't really get anything done.

2 TBSP PB2 Powdered Peanut butter (no sugar, 1.5g fat, 12% daily protein)
1 TBSP Lions Mane mushroom powder
1.5 Whole Frozen Banana
1/2 cup plain coconut milk (watch for added sugars)
rest of cup filled with h2o and ice

TBH, I can drink half of this at 130pm and feel satisfied until dinner most days. The start up costs are kind of expensive up front, protein, hemp seeds, etc, but it ends up being a $2-3 meal, which isn't too bad in my opinion considering how much eating out or making a bagged lunch costs.

As for exercise, I know we're all different, but start slow and easy. I've been running regularly again after Covid, it's been 12 weeks now. Rather than tying to hoof it hard, I've been doing the same 1.1 mile loop 4 days, a different 2.2 mile loop 2 days, and a day off. It's about sustainability for me. Going hard 1 or 2 days and feeling like ass the rest of the time doesn't really get anything done.

@IusedToSkateMore How are you, dude? That a great shake recipe. I've never had hemp seeds or lions mane before but I'll check them out. Glad to hear you're running again! I'll PM you.

I'm hanging, my friend. semester is winding down and I'm scraping through papers!

I use the lions mane mushroom powder for its cognitive effects, it's not necessary for a meal shake, it's just what I do. Hemp seeds are a great source of digestible protein and DEFINITELY cheaper than fancy protein powders if you can find them at like Costco or something.

drop me a pm anytime!!!

Some sativa strains are more effective an appetite suppressant than nicotine or caffeine for me. When I first got my card I was almost exclusively using sativas because I didn't really know much other than i like sweet and piney weed. Now that I've learned a lot more about different terpenes and my own body and what works I've been using those strains early in the morning and then tapering off into more indica leaning strains which do stimulate my appetite. So between not eating as much and then having healthier munchies the weight just kind of fell off. It made me realize this is probably my natural weight and I've been walking around overweight but not really noticing because I didn't look "fat".

When you do get your card if you want to learn about terpenes and the biochemistry of cannabis or choosing a strain feel free to hit me up. There's a ton of good information and resources online but the most important thing to remember is that everyone is different and what does one thing to you might do something totally different to someone else. It's kind of like skate gear... You may have to experiment for a while until you find the one that fits you best.
[close]

unless it's at night and I'm ripping indica, weed and coffee suppress my appetite like crazy. no joke. I'm not saying it's all related, but since last February I've been on the mushroom microdose, small amount of THC candy, and coffee most mornings, I've dropped down from 165ish to staying at 140ish since May or so. Dropping those unexpected lbs really makes ya feel better all around.

Ya I remember you telling me about your morning routine. I haven't always responded well to mushies (literally the only drug that's ever made me black out and wake up on the ground with my terrified friends standing over me in a circle) so I don't really have any interest in that but I'm the same way with coffee and sativas. I wont even think about eating until im coming down but I get this crazy like primal level satisfaction from ice water. Its like the best thing on earth when I'm baked, especially if I'm skating or otherwise working up a sweat.

For the guys who are prone to snacking on sweets but want something healthier my go-to is grapes. They're the right size to satisfy the snacking ritual and some of the newer kinds (cotton candy, moon drops, sweet snaps etc) taste like straight up candy when they're ripe. I also dip them in yogurt or eat them with cheese if I want to switch it up and add some protein.

Been doing intermittent fasting with an 8-hour window, AKA skipping breakfast with a fancy name. Before work, I've been jumping on the trainer and doing an hour of intervals. Trying to lose 10 pounds and get back to where I was before the knee injury.

Used to get lots of motivating comments like "Eat a sandwich", "are you anorexic?", "do you want to talk about it?" etc. I really miss those days.

grapes are good!

my lady got us on Prunes. she says they're good for pooping purposes, but I'm pretty regular anyways. either way, the prunes are pretty filling and sweet.

I have made it my mission to never work full-time. Aside from parental duties, it allows me to skate long sessions during the week. Definitely key to managing my weight since I am not very disciplined when it comes to exercise. Obviously itís a privilege to be able to work part-time, but many people could if they didnít prioritize their professional careers.

@listentoaheartbeat that sounds great, I am sure your kids appreciate you being around.

For me the key was a drastic change of diet. Exercise is nice and well but if you want to lose weight, the only way is to ingest less calories than you burn.

 I am now hovering around 63 kilos (approx. 139 lbs). I managed to keep that weight although I havenĎt been able/allowed to do sports or even exercise for a month now.

Obviously, if you have a physical job or skate six hours a day you can eat more than if you sit at a desk all day.

Man, you all are motivating. Iím about to turn 46 and sick of going up and down in weight. Sitting at a gross 237.8 right now. Got down to 222 last year with a goal of 219 and just blew it. Fuck. Iíll be dropping in here to let you all know how this goes. Short term I want to see the scale say 229. Long term I want to see 199 and stay there. This shit is hard, Iíve never had a metabolism. Lets do this!
Side note: I did strict IF for the last seven weeks and gained 7 lbs, so fuck that. I need to move more and eat less. Simple. But very hard.

Anyone else get Covid and just completely go backwards here?

I was doing pretty well, as you'll read earlier in the thread, then three things happened: (i) I changed jobs where I now drive to work instead of walk, (ii) I realized the hot, flirty young lady at my old job whom I was subconsciously trying to impress wasn't rly that into me, we were just two ppl trapped in a miserable work environment, and (iii) I got Covid and it just completely wiped me out and I was basically bedridden for two weeks.

Now I'm back up to like 230 lbs, though I guess every day is a new day...gotta get back on the horse...

Post by: Seventyfuhkinseven on January 26, 2022, 03:34:07 AM
Moving more and eating less is definitely how this thing works in your 40s. This became evident to me when I started working on my feet again. I have also been keeping my calorie intake at about 1600. I think I mentioned before I can't skate in the winter so my treadmill on my days off keeps me from raiding the fridge. I started at 222 at Christmas and as of last today I am down to 208..so it is pretty unlikely I will be 199 for my birthday, but not through lack of effort. There is a ton of motivation in this thread..and  Fubar and Lawndale I look forward to seeing your updates!

i just cancelled my orange theory membership because i've been burning a shitload of calories playing pistol whip on oculus. i haven't enjoyed a video game in ages but this ones got me pretty stoked. if i have an hour between calls i'll hit a quick session in the garage and usually stack 700-900 calories. an oculus cost about 300 and there's a 30 day return at best buy. worth trying if your looking for a good indoor calorie option.

still not moving the needle on my weight like i'd like too but most evenings we cook food with the family and each good cheeses and have good drinks. but at least i'm breaking even.

This thread started a bit more than a year ago but I jumped on exactly one year ago with below post:

Count me in brahs. Not sure how I will manage but trying to cut back on processed sugar for starters. ItĎs hard tho, being from the land of chocolate.  :'(

I was writing this half jokingly first, without setting a goal but soon I was motivated by Pals posting their success so I started taking it serious and got on a diet. Here's how my weight developed since, based on my postings in this thread:

28 March: Start the diet at 75kg / 165 lbs
15 May: 72kg / 158 lbs
21 June: 70kg / 154  lbs - at this point I started doing forearm planks, which I still do daily
25 July: 68kg / 149 lbs
30 Aug: 66kg / 145
23 Oct: 65kg / 143lbs
30 Dec: 63 kg / 139 lbs - after that, I started gaining a bit of weight but then I started interval fasting, which helped me maintain the weight and even going down a little bit
12 March: 61.5 / 135 lbs - I have been stable on this weight for about two weeks now. I hope to maintain it.

In other words, I am 30 lbs down. That's something I would not have thought to be possible if you had told me a year ago. I was used to getting fatter and fatter and thought this was normal for an old dude. Now I am fit and happy with my body. It's a good feeling and I thank everyone in this thread for being a motivation. You guys are the best!

Yo Chubby SLAPers

I have never been the picture of health, but barely leaving the house for 1 year has caused me to gain 15 lbs of pure fat.

Now that it looks like life is about to begin again I need my shit together before the summer or skateboarding will suck.

I picking 20 lbs as my goal, cause I was trying to drop 10-15 lbs before all this shit.

Join me for the fight and post your final weight loss total if you like.

Canít believe itís been a year since I started this thread.

Iíve lost 6.5 lbs but my pants still feel tight. I was actually doing really well over the summer but in the fall I pulled something in my groin (pushing leg) and I havenít been skating since September, so muscle has been replaced with fat and I am right back where I started.

@Easy Slider you can be the European chapter president. Loosing 20% of your body weight is crazy. Iím hoping to loose another 15 lbs. my groin still doesnít feel right but I think if I donít take long pushes Iíll be alright.

Dropped 25ish elbees and have kept it off. Lowest i hit was 138 in the middle of last summer. Fully clothed I clocked 143 at doc last week. Haven't been very active and have been eating less clean as winter is fading away. Its easier when weather is warmer

Actively avoided this thread out of denial, but went surfing for the first time in a month and my bloated stomach made it feel like I was balancing on a basketball.

Iím definitely a boredom and stress eater, and far too often those foods are fried or pure refined sugar.  This is my potential new workday ďdietĒ, tell me if itís severely lacking anything;

- Intermittent fast from dinner (6-7pm) until my morning break between 9-10am.
- Switch morning coffee with milk for white tea.
- Morning break : Plain Greek yogurt with blueberries, carrot sticks.
- Lunch : 1/2 chicken breast, 1/2 avocado, whole wheat tortilla maybe?
- Afternoon break : Apple

My partner and I eat pretty normal and well rounded dinners, but could def scale back the portion sizes.  And of course, Iíll try to drag myself outside for walks/runs.  Or do burpees.  God Iím already tired of this and I havenít even started.

Hey man, you'll be able to do it! I personally find it easier to do the IF from 10pm-1 or 2pm. I get to snack a little at night and just drink black coffee til lunch. Whatever works.

I did find that cutting refined sugars for the first few months made it easier all around. Body stopped craving it

no doubt. I hesitate to even suggest anything to anyone because how and what we do around food is a highly individualistic thing. Obviously, by schedule is different than yours!!! but ya, fuckin hell, man, I love cookies and pastries and had to cut back for sure. For a sugar fix I add maple syrup to greek yogurt. it's sugar but at least it's not white shit from a bag ;)

When I was vegetarian, I gained weight just as easy. Itís all about reducing calorie intake and increasing burn. If you want to cut anything, I recommend candy, alcohol, and fast food.

I canít seem to keep weight off cause I have preteen kids and we eat like shit when we are together. I take them to McDonaldís and Wendyís and eat pizza too much.

I should be at your weight as we are the 77 brothers. What you been eating?
Thank you my 77 brutha! Mike V. showed me the way! Honestly itís all been about portion control combined with intermittent fasting (skipping breakfast) I donít really eat fast food, but I still drink 2-4 beers a night, and will get a pizza every other week. I was 190 yesterday, and when I see 189 I will probably cry haha.
 
Edit: I went to gnar you..but I can not be responsible for ruining that perfect 5 oh 8 that number means more to me than 189  :)

Congrats 70fn7, thatís a big win, good luck with the last few! 

Iím down about 20lbs in the last 4-5 weeks.  Sitting around 195 from 215.  Working on the road last week was a setback but been back on track since this weekend.  Aiming for 180 or so, then might have the odd snack again, but want to stick with 16:8.  Pants are starting to get a little loose, hoping to step up my fit game this summer.

Nice achievement.

 I am down at 60kg / 132lbs from 75kg / 165lbs, which means I lost 20% of my body in one year. Mindboggling to think this was all fat I was carrying around.

Congratulations! I just finished a small bowl of potato chips when I read this. I havenít weighed 175 LBS in 20 years. Must help so much with skating. Iíd be estatic if I lost 25 lbs. loosing 50 is crazy. Iím impressed.

60kg, 15kg, goddamn!

Put on weight during a 2 week holiday, upping my workout schedule and cutting down my carbs intake.

Stay strong everyone!

good work big dawg.  that's dope. I've been a steady 140 for a while now. it's nice. I'm 5'8, was at 165ish at points when this started. I'd like to get at 135 but that's kinda more control and work than I wanna do. I went kinda heavy on eat sweets and dairy the last few months but it was taking a toll on my GI track so I had to stop. feels good, man. bettah eat that mark anthonys tho bro

Sincere Congratulations though

I am ~two months sober off weed which used to cause binge eating. I'm struggling with diet management and am still procrastinating the nightly bike rides. Depression's the culprit but seeing Seventyfuhkinseven's progress helps remind me to keep my ideal lifestyle in mind and make improvements toward it.

Use that depression to fuel the fire! My life was pretty much destroyed and I figured either I could either let it bring me down even lower..or I could turn all the pain and anger into motivation. If that makes any sense. Anyhow thanks for all the kind words everyone! And @IusedToSkateMore gawddamn fuckin right Iím getting that Marc Anthonyís pizza this weekend! 5 oh 8!
