I'm 5'3" and 47 years old and can wear a bikini and not die of total humiliation.

        I agree... AWESOME!!

          • Nice, Quelsen, I wish my friend saw what you've done. He is as heavy as you were and has been told he must lose the weight.
            Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

              OK. Being a bit of a dinosaur here. I'm trying to post a 'before' picture... mostly because I've been feeling lazy in month #2 due to the end of summer stressors (kids! Love 'em, but they have to go to school soon) and I want people to hold me accountable to post an 'after' picture in November. That gives me 4 months. I just copied a photo I have in my profile section and pasted it here. Not sure it will work.

              If it does: that is me. Even my foster dog is bored with how I look; thus the big yawn. My main goal is to firm up my middle and increase my strength. I'd love to have long, lean legs, but God blessed me with something otherwise. Inside, I'd like to feel less anxious and tired. I do have more energy after 4 weeks, and my bloating has been reduced to a minimum. I've gained a few pounds, but soon I will concentrate on portion control to keep it in check.

              Thanks for looking (I guess).

              • I should have asked my 15 yr old son for help. hah

                Trying to post my picture this way instead. About 6 months ago I looked pretty darned good, but I stopped exercising between February-July due to chronic injury. But, regardless, inside i felt pretty crappy. Now I feel pretty good inside and still working on the outside. Just need to firm back up and increase strength.

                          Yeah, I went back to look @ the door frames in each picture, hehe...So in you're before foto, your arms would need to be moved or either of your shoulders would I guess needed to have been dropped or turned to walk thru the doorway! A great job, great fotos.

                            back in the bad old days when i didnt know shit i had a goal weight of 175 ( the same weight i was at 13 ) then i had a BODPOD reading that showed my lean mass as 240 and my fat mass at 250 and i was pissed that it mean that with 10% BF my goal weight was 264.. That was before I had a working solution....

                            Goal weights are great ideas... and for the normal fatty :-) probably worth setting.

                            For the truly planetary body the desire to drop one more pound today is about all that can be held sanely.

                            Too much changes. too much that the normal plumper has no clue about. I used to live on the HCG forum, and no offense to those(mostly) chickas, listening to them complain about the 15 pounds they wanted removed before summer became rather annoying. it is very easy to place diet and exercise on anyone who WANTS to drop 30 pounds or less. it is most likely an open cakehole that is the problem.

                            when you start weighing in metric tons the body works very differently.

                            I KNOW i can hold 30 pounds of water and have pissed out 12 pounds of water in an eight hour period stimulated by the highly derided ice baths.

                            I have seen my bone density increase due to vitamin K2 supplementation, imagine how much anger and confusion one can feel as the weight increases but the inches dont or even reduce... but the tooth enamel regrowing as well as deep bone aches and 25 year long toenail damage ( from ripping them out by the root while playing barefooted ) spontaneously regrows correctly.

                            Watching the body reshape in the mirror, literally watch as the hump in my neck melted off, along with the excruciating pain of it as the same time... Waking up to bone wrenching agony as what seems like a charlie horse of the soul grips your nutsack and radiates up and down the spine. then seeing a 3 -4 pound drop from the previous day....


                            I know i have no farking clue what my body CAN do. All i know is that I stay the course, eat right, keep my chemical balanced and YES use HCG as needed to get over humps.

                            Goal weight... we dont need no stinking goal weight... just the will and desire to drop one more pound one more time.

                            I have accepted however that 275 is mostly likely where i could settle. IF i reach that place and hold it for a year I will know that it is time to start exercising ( what hullo hold the phone did he say.....) I have performed no routine form of exercise since June 2010. What i know from trial and error is that is the quickest way to halt reduction for me and in some cases set me back about 3 months. i do pushups ( i can get out 5 or 10 depending on the day and my testosterone levels) and bounce on my rebounder sporadically. Walk when the mood strikes me. that is it, anything more and i pay in scale weight.


                            Not to worry, i am still Fezzik apparantly. After my 5th round of HCG their was a hot debate about HCG wasting muscle mass and i was pretty pissed at the stupidity i felt those comments represented, so i went to my local muscle hutt. I walked in off the street and said, " you got a weeks pass", of course they did... i looked around and said can you give me a spot? She really could not so i settled down onto a smith machine (bench) pushed out 5 reps of 350 and maxed out at 385. given that I had done no serious weight slinging in about 4 years at that point i felt it was about what i should expect since 425 was my max workout weight with 475 being my max capacity.

                            I cant help being the biggest and the strongest... i dont even exercise.

                            Long winded i know but i cant expect anyone to accept that i dont have a goal weight without understanding why i dont have a goal weight.

                              Yup, definitely Fezzik.
