    LMAO - there's no crying in fat loss! You fight fires! Who am I kidding....I cry when I drop my candy still.



    Yes, Firetitan has the ballz to put it on the line and step into the game! Failure is not an option!



    Yes, WTH? Stop making excuses. I've been doing under 1,000 calories since May 10th (yes, I cheat at times), and I've lost over 30 pounds since then. All of my easy weight is long gone. This is the push I needed to get rid of the last 20, the toughest 20. If I can do this, you can. Jump in my friend!



    So, what exactly is this excuse? You want to join, but you don't want to commit? When is your bulk over? You don't have to stop your cut after the 6 week portion. The goal is to lose 18 pounds in 6 weeks....if you want to go to 8 weeks, that's fine, but the first 6 weeks will be epic! Join already!
    Oh Im in. Breakfast and lunch down totaling 500 calories. Plus, I may or may not have a few tricks up my sleeve!!

    That works, I don't expect everyone to drop right now and start their cut. 2 weeks, and you are in! I'm sure we will have others running the same time as you. Great to have you on board (and you know I was just giving you a hard time, for fun)

    Niiiiiice. Firetitan has brought the diet game. @hairygrandpa has been quiet though. He must be busy eating his meatballs and drinking wine.

    I've been lurking not posting much these days. Yeah I remember using PSMF with some strong fat burners that I can't talk about. 18lbs a bit rough for me as I'm about to go on vacation and I'd be weighing like below 150lbs if I did lol.

    Agreed. I think the correct spelling is "YOUUUUUUUUUUGE" (do people really not realize there's an H in there?)

    That said, I'ma be huger. Esp after shredding myself thanks to this stupid challenge!

    Until then, I make sure I'm a safe distance from @FireTitan so he can't knock me out before I can compete .

    JUST 6 WEEKS brother. Once you get through the first week, you will be cruising.

  8. That's all for one day:

    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

  9. For what it is worth, if you are allowing others to join in on this competition make them go home today and weigh themselves and report back with their current weight today or tomorrow. That way if they try and be shady and eat a ton and spill over between now and their official start date you can just use the original weight.

    I mean I know what I am doing and could eat enough over the weekend to be 18lbs heavier on Monday or Tuesday and be right back down to my starting weight a week later. You don't want anyone sand bagging. Every time I throw a transformation contest everybody wants to get fluffy and bloat themselves for the before pictures. So now I get current pics to compare to the start pics and make sure there was no sandbagging or intentional spilling over for the first pics.

    What are the rules if everyone loses the 18lbs? Then does it go to who lost the 18 lbs the fastest or who lost the most weight in that 6 weeks?

Weight has been anywhere from 180 - 190 over the last 3 years as I try to build up some form of muscle. Still fighting some belly fat, mainly because of Mexican food. Work related stress is probably a bigger issue than I'll admit. When I saw @HIT4ME discussing this earlier today I was all about it. A deadline and committing to something is just what I need to actually do it! I'll change my workout routine to an old school push / pull / legs 3 days a week program, with 3 days of trail running (my preferred cardio) 6 miles per day. And I will be officially beginning on Monday, due to out of state meetings for the next 2 days, followed by working all weekend.

    And I can't let @hairygrandpa be the only noodz, so here in all my pudgy glory..............

    (and after seeing this, maybe I should do the whole 18 pounds )
    Man you are a brave one. You sure about this? I think 18lbs off of you right now would have you emaciated and will result in more muscle loss than you want to experience. I just don't think you are carrying enough fat to safely lose 3lbs a week without 1-1.5lbs of that being muscle after the first 2-3 weeks. From where you are now in 18 lbs you would be well into the single digits if done perfectly, but that means slower and more responsible. Perhaps you ride along but maybe only shoot for 12lbs so you don't find yourself struggling to regain mass that you just finished struggling to regain from your first weight loss. I am sure HIT4ME and HGP would be fine with that. Sounds like you need the motivation but you don't want to shoot yourself in the foot by going to aggressive on the weight loss from where you are now.

    Just my opinion brother.. This contest is to better ourselves and have fun doing it. Make sure what you plan to do will actually be an improvement. You don't want to succeed in this 18 lbs but end up looking like Christian Bale in "The Machinest"

    I would not cut right after bulking. End your bulk at a bodyfat you are comfortable at and stick there for 8-12 weeks so your body resets its LBM to your new levels of muscle and sets that as the new homeostasis. If you cut right after a bulk your body sees the new muscle as the most disposable thing. It has lived without it up until this point and sees no need to try and maintain it once you are in a deficit. Let your body become accustomed to the new mass and then diet down. You will keep more of your gains that way.

    Personally, I don't like Christian Bale -but his body transformations are awe inspiring.

    I liked him in American Psycho, he fit the bill perfectly there. I think he did fine in the Batman movies but really once the costume is on anyone could do it. He isn't one of my favorites but I still enjoy movies he is in. Even if his performance isn't stand out most of the movies he has been in are great movies. Personally he is probably a douche but I don't let him being caught having a temper tantrum bother me. So many actors out there I couldn't go see there movies if liking them or what they stand for was required for me to enjoy seeing them act like someone else.

  17. I'm definitely in. Planning on cutting 18 and gaining some muscle. We will see how that pans out.

    Goal is 12% BF at 199 ish

    Edit: I would actually be losing a total of 18 but in realty losing 28 and gaining 10 lbs of muscle. If all goes according to plan.

    Just take a realistic look at yourself and your position. This is a doable thing for sure but most people are going to want to at least be in the 20-25% and up body fat range to drop 18lbs safely in 6 weeks without losing a lot of muscle. Maybe there can be a second group looking to only drop 12 lbs @ 2 lbs a week keeps things pretty safe for those without a lot of fat to lose.

    I get hyped up about every challenge or contest any of us put up. I have just been lucky enough lately to be in Prep for my upcoming PL meet so I can't stray from my course. Otherwise I would have probably killed myself in some of HGP's challenges earlier this summer. I have learned to pick and choose now because not all contests are right for me depending on the current state of my physique. However a contest is massive motivation so I totally get the desire to be in one and the drive one gets from them.

    Yeah right now I'm sitting at 208ish (depends on water/glycogen retention) at around 15%. 18 lbs in 6 weeks seems like a real iffy thing already to me, but after what you said, it sort of hit me more. I enjoy competition, but maybe I should be smarter with my battles (even if they are for fun)

    Well in your situation I would say 12 lbs would be a challenge and doable. Probably just as challenging as 18 for the bigger guys. Why don't we make this a 2 class event. Those who are relatively lean already go for 12 lbs and those who have a little more to lose stay at the 18 lbs. Keeps things sensible and allows more people to participate who are at different compositions.

    What do you all think @HIT4ME and @hairygrandpa? This is your contest you want to allow another class?

    Also while making suggestions to keep things fair, no water manipulation tricks to cut weight like a fighter or power lifter before a meet the last week out. It really won't be beneficial to anyone to play that game as opposed to exercising the discipline to actually lose real fat. a big guy like HGP could cut 20lbs of water in less than a week if he wanted too but that wouldn't be in the spirit of the competition. It makes sense in a physique transformation but not something geared to help people actually improve body composition.

    @MrKleen73 - you come in here and just take over, and.....I love it. You and I are on the same page. I was wondering hour SFreed could lose 18 pounds when he put up those photos, and I was thinking 10 pounds would be impressive for him.

    I saw your thoughts above and started thinking -people below say, 18% , may have a really hard time doing 18 pounds and not christian baleing it. I certainly don't want that...this is supposed to be hard but positive.

    I like the idea of reducing it to 10 or 12 pounds if you are below 15 or 18 %. The idea is to get people competing. If you are gonna claim low body fat % though, we need noods. What say you @hairygrandpa?

    I really appreciate your input MrKleen. I want this to be a challenge for the people...so everyone can feel free to voice their opinion and the rules can change as long as it increases competition in an honest and positive light.

    And yeah, if you want to lose 20 pounds of water, you are missing the point of the challenge.

    If you pull that off, you will win. That would be impressive. I don't think you can do it, because it seems so ambitious. But I believe you could prove me wrong and I want to see that. Glad to have you on board.

    Lol - you should have taken a page out of Firetitan's book and said you were 225. This is meant to push people in a direction they want to go. If it isn't right for YOU, backing out is understandable ...no harm at all. If you decide to go for a more moderate goal, then let's have at it!

  23. I'm down to chop out 12 lbs without water tricks. If it helps motivate you guys, I'm all for it. It's all about teamwork, bahaha.

    So fricken intelligent. I think youve got a great point. Im 220, and probably closer to 20%, maybe a bit more, so I think 3lbs a week is doable as long as I dedicate myself to it. And completely agree about the water weight.

  26. 6 Week Fat Loss Challenge


    Ah man. I could probably try to lose 10lbs (i truly have 0 desire to lose any more than that). Im 250, probably 16%. Dropping 10 of pure fat would get me to ~12%...which would be the leanest ive ever been since I weighed 205 and was probably 8%...i'll think on it.

    Edit: the 16% is the low end of my estimate, probably between 16-18 somewhere. Im not "fat" but i definitely dont have abs.

  29. Don't really post on AM much these days, I mainly lurk in the background, but i am keen to lose a few kilos as we make our way towards summer here in the southern hemisphere, and this will make for some good motivation.

    Currently sitting at 90.6kg, which is heavy for me. I would like to get to about 85kg, so a kilo a week or about 2 pounds a week.

    Here is a pic from this morning


    Not the best pic but it should do the job.

    Good to know that you guys think I don't have anything to lose, but I don't see it that way. I look at that picture and the first thing I see is that belly fat. I realize that we are the hardest on ourselves, but I really feel that I need this to motivate me to drop that belly. As I said at first, 10 pounds is really where I would like to be, so if there is 2 groups, that's great. If not, so be it. I'll shoot for 10 and be totally tickled with that.
