Where your body stores fat depends on genetics. Sometimes you'll see people with large belly's and regular looking legs but that's not because they walk a lot or cycle. It's because they're genetically that way. Other times you'll see people with weight concentrated on their hips, bum and legs with relatively normal upper bodys.
That's me to a T. I only gain weight on my stomach. My legs are slim as, the rest of me is fine but I have a belly. It's so annoying!

And Nick, OMG! Well done! :D You look great <3

I can completely agree with that.

I haven't changed mine greatly just cut out a lot of crap but otherwise I eat what I want. Although I am eating a lot more healthy.

So many success stories in here :D Makes my 15kgs look a bit sad though haha :lol: But I wasn't *that* huge to begin with, I was just out of shape and and added some extra weight to my frame. My Mum says if I keep going any further, I'll be TOO slim :roll: :lol:

When I was 18 - 21, I was a size 6, which is a USA size 4, and I weighed between 46kgs and 49kgs, depending on what was happening. My body was so perfect :(

But I wouldn't do an actual proper diet, cos I'm really picky when it comes to food so half of the stuff they say to eat I wouldn't want to :oops:

Guys, do you have an experience with Psyllium?
I use that for last 2 months ... first week it was hard since Psyllium mainly cleanse the intestines - if you know what I´m talking about ... The other effect is that it fills the stomach for some time, so you don´t feel hungry.

My biggest problem was sugar (in hot drinks), I was looking for substitute ... I found Stevia to be really good.
I use whey too, thought it would be horrible, but its quiet good ... and it´s very healthy.

I´m thinking of using Chlorella.

before I thought that I can have diet coke once a time, when I saw what all does it include I gave up, I found other drink to be based on the same taste just without all the poisons - and its sweeted with Stevia.

And congrats Nick !

Ok, so I need you as my personal trainer. I don't care what kind of exercise that involves with you. 8-) :wink:

Nah, seriously, i want to ask some advice...

My relationship with "dieting" (I hate that word) is very much all or nothing. If I am being good and have the willpower I can lose half a stone in a week, and things go great. But I can only succeed if I cut all treats out. I can't eat a little bit of something like chocolate or whatever, cos then I'll just go and demolish the whole bar, so I just deny myself pretty much everything I like. If I go without, my willpower is fine, but if I eat a little, my willpower disappears altogether. So of course this isn't sustainable, and then I go wrong and do the whole "I'll start again next week / month / year..." thing. :oops:

How do you fitness buffs find a way to balance the denial with the occasional treat? I just can't seem to do that, and this is the same hurdle I always fall at eventually.

Anyway, tomorrow I start my healthy lifestyle plan (I won't say diet). I've written it online now so I have to keep to it. I just need some help lol. :(

As long as you paying well I can be your trainer :lol: jk I wouldn't charge you. :D
Sometimes that "all or nothing" thing is really hard. I actually had to kind of work my way up to do that. I honestly think once you work hard enough to see results and changes (i.e your clothes getting bigger, you'll notice that you will rarely have stomach sickness etc.) that kinda helps. I also kinda installed this guilt within me everytime I eat something bad...which sometimes kinda sucks, but it keeps me on track. Just don't do it to the point that you get discourage that you just give up.

I would always in vision that every little step helps you get into shape faster...such as that extra mile on the treadmill that your contemplating or eating that apple instead of that warm chocolate chip cookie.

You also have to find out what exactly works for you...experiment and do different exercise and try different foods. Granted most food that taste great is unhealthy for you...they're some alternative choices that actually taste good. You just gotta find them.

Let me know how everything goes. I would love to build some type of support system here for this. I'm still on my quest to get my fitness the way I want it.

I'll never go to a swimming pool. I'm too insecure to show off my body, unless I could swim in T-shirt and shorts, but that's not allowed :-?

I just want to lose 5kg to weight 60kg. Imma read some of your tips, but the best one is just to cut sweets :lol: I may look like an anorexia victim, but I don't really care at this point...

Image

(for the record, that's not me) It looks awful, but I'll never get muscles and even if I decided to gain weight, my belly would get bigger and that's all. I think I prefer to look like this instead of looking like a scarecrow with fat belly :lol:

Unfortunately there's no real secret...certainly not one that's healthy or will lead to a long term weight loss...the trick is basically eat less, move more, drinks tons of water. That's it.

I lost about 25lbs a few years ago and have kept it off. One of the things that really helped is I stopped eating protein and carbs together. So I'd have two eggs or cereal for breakfast, pasta/sandwiches/salads/potatoes etc for lunch, and meat or fish with vegetables for dinner (all seasoned and roasted).

I think it helped because I wasn't eating carbs in the evening and my portions were naturally smaller. Plus I didn't make the mistake of cutting carbs out altogether so the weight didn't just come back on when I reintroduced them

No lies told. Except I would say not exact to eat less...but realize when you're full and to eat healthier. A lot of us have the mentality to finish what's on your plate to avoid wasting food while we are already full. Sometimes you gotta stop and just see if your just eating to finish your plate (this also goes for boredom) or to see if your really eating because your hungry.

But I guess this is the same thing as eating less. :lol:

Another thing would be that you have to change your relationship with food. With me when I was at my heaviest, I've always had a emotional relationship with food. Such as, when I was sad...I would go eat. When I was happy, I would celebrate and go "treat" myself". The big one was, when I was bored, I would really go eat.

You gotta learn how to eat to live, not live to eat.
