I'm a "bit" chubby, but I don't want to be. What can I say? I looovveee to eat.

"I can resist anything but temptation" as the saying goes ;)

I'm also not super accountable to my weight loss efforts when left to my own devices. I wanted to create a log where I have to share my weight and workouts every day to hopefully incur some kind of social consequence to me not sticking to my goal. I, however, do not want to be the guy to post my workouts to IG/FB with Fitspiration hashtags. #neverstopgrinding

Goals

I've always wanted single digit bodyfat. There's just something that seems cool about having that lean, crisp look.

Goal Weight (to start, we will see how I look when I get there): 190 lbs

How
-workout every day
-moderate calorie deficit (20-25%)
-Post my workout and weight here every day.


Buuuuuuttt I don't want to give up my social life/completely go full bodybuilder either, so I would ideally also just like to adopt a healthy and maintainable lifestyle.

This community is about progress. If you look like a jelly donut now, no one cares. You'd be surprised, sometimes we tend to imagine that because this is a forum about fitness/bodybuilding /etc we think everyone on here is super fit. That's not entirely true, there are some really fit people on here but that's not the majority of people on here

Eeeeyy I hope so. I remember watching a video (I think it was Alberto Nunez) where someone famously said "We're always fatter than we think we are" ahahaha. Truth - When I weighed 300 lbs I thought I'd be ripped at 220. Oops

Weight - 216.8; probably take a few days for the weight to normalize after the big eating day

Workout

25 minutes walking
5 minute S/S dips & curls (BWx45, 30x45)

Pressed for time since I have a midterm today, but I also have a date tonight so I figured "Why not go for a bit of a puuuuummmp?"

Are men the only ones who do this? I'd like to believe she's going to be doing some calf raise, glute-bridge super sets before she goes out :laugh2: Maybe I should too?

Gotta make those gastrocs pop, amirite?!?!

Eeeeehhhh midterms are a tough time. That, and job searching/extra things on the side have been keeping me busy...but mostly hungry :popcorn:

Not super proud, but I'm here to face the music (though I definitely did not want to admit it). I'm back on track and have made some adjustments that have worked in the past for me and hopefully they'll work again (working out a bit less hard leangains RPT style to keep me from getting too hungry, IF, and walking).
