Dang guys, the Biggest Loser workout program is way cheaper than those other ones, lol.

I just joined 24 hour Fitness to get my ass in gear. I've slowed down a bit on my weight loss and it's pissed me off a bit. For my excuse I've been sick and in a lot of pain since September with my stomach issues so I haven't wanted to do **** for exercise. I haven't been on the treadmill or any major cardio until last night, but I DO walk home from work almost every day, which is 2.29 miles a day. Plus my job is pretty physical so I'm burning calories there too. I've been losing, but not like I was. I have lost 96 pounds so far. Tomorrow I meet with a personal trainer at 24 hour Fitness to get a workout program started, so the last 53 pounds will come off, woohoo! I have so much flab I need to work off. A girl doesn't go from 279 pounds to 183 without a bunch of flab, lol. I have 53 left to go and don't need to add MORE flab to it and don't need surgery that Kaiser said they would pay for! So, I'm going to try to work it off first. I can see my goal in my sight, and I will get there.

Great job to everyone here!!

I needed to take a body fat test. So I walked into this personal training spot and the guy gave me a test for free. But it was that test where you hold the body fat tester in your hands. I knew that it wasn't going to be an accurate test. Those things are a waste of time because they are way off. He types in my weight, height, and age, has me hold it, and the thing spits out 15.9%. He then tells me that according to my BMI that I'm overweight. I was looking at him like he can't even believe this BS. I wanted to take of my shirt and ask him if he still thought that I was 15.9%. My chest, arms, and upper abs are defined. It's just that my lower abs are slow to come around. I'd guess that I'm between 8-10% body fat. But 15.9%?!?! That's just dumb.

GHETTO DIET

What is needed:

Comfortable shoes
Attitude
A fair measure of stupidity
Medical coverage


STEP ONE: Have a friend drive you to the worst neighborhood in your area, preferably at night.
STEP TWO: Have said friend drop you off and speed away.
STEP THREE: Wander in completely unfamiliar streets and insult people. Curse, call their mother names, and give them the finger.
STEP FOUR: Run like hell.
STEP FIVE: Use speed and athleticism to stay alive. Dart between traffic, run through intersections, and dive over trash bins.
STEP SIX: Pray. Should you survive, weight loss is guaranteed. Successful candidates are known to lose ten pounds on the first session alone.

CAUTION: This diet has a high mortality rate. But if you succeed, you'll be skinny as a rail. Assuming you want to look like one.

I greatly reduced calorie intake, drinking water and black coffee instead of soda, staying away from fat when possible, working out and taking Dexatrim Max has been responsible for the loss. I'm shooting for 175 by the Diego game....size 34 would be nice to see again as well.
As of yesterday, 170 lbs.

Well I've been having a tough time losing weight. It's hard to lose weight when you don't have much weight to lose. I changed up my workout and diet a couple months ago. I was 6' 187. I weighted myself today and I'm 178. My mid section still isn't as cut as I want it to be, and I still can't get rid of that little roll of fat on my lower abs. I guess that's what you get when you turn 30. I'm hoping a few more pounds off will get rid of it because I don't want to go under 170 pounds. Once I get this last little body fat off I'm going to change up my diet to add more muscle. I'm figuring 180 with around 6 or 7% body fat will be good.

Are you aware how low 6 or 7% actually is in reality?

BF% sound a lot higher than they really are. 9% is extremely cut, in reality.

Exactly. People rarely realize how low 10% actually is.

Hey, you body build right?

I'm starting a cut next week. Do you do Ketosis or HIIT?

I am aware of how low 6 to 7% body fat is. I'm not there yet, but I'm not 15.9%. That's just silly.

When I was at UCLA on the track team my body fat was 7.6%, which was the second highest on the sprint team. They all joked with me and called me fat. A lot of the guys were in the 4 to 5% range. I have more muscle now, but not much more body fat. The last time I took a reliable body fat test (the caliper test, which is a lot more accurate than the machine test) was a couple years back when I had gotten really lean, and I was at 8%. I'm not much bigger than I was then. I'd say that I'm heavier do to a little bit more muscle. I'm probably carrying a little bit more fat, but not much more.

If I'd take a guess I'd say that I was at about 10% body fat. 15.9% would be "soft". I'm not as cut as I'm working to be, but I'm certainly not soft.

15.9% isn't nearly as soft as you're thinking.

Throw up a pic on a bodybuilding forum. Some people can visually estimate within 2% really well.

Lower than 4 percent is extremely dangerous.

Competitive body builders only maintain 3 percent for a few hours for shows. In fact, they even get dehydrated so they can get a "dry cut."

Very, very dangerous.

One website has an interview with Reynolds. Claims that he was down to 3% body fat for that movie. I'm not sure if that's 3% in that photo, but I'd say that's lower than 8%.

When I used to wrestle, we had to have parents sign waivers for anything under 6%.

My metabolism keeps me naturally well cut, and even then I never dipped below 6. Nor in the Marines when I was doing 46 pull ups. And not now at the end of cut cycles.
