    Great initiative and all the best to you. But I think most posters here will have weight gain stories.

    Not a great achievement but I cut from 218 to 203 over this year. My goal is to end up somewhere around 195. I'm probably at 18% bf and ideally I'd like that to drop by 5% eventually. The key is to track what you eat, an app like Lose it is good enough for that and to exercise as consistently as you can.

    As for how long it takes, that depends entirely on your diet and your workout. But it isn't easy to maintain muscle mass and burning fat alone. You might want to consider working out/cardio before eating breakfast to target fat storage and you'll have to keep track of your macros.

    You should check the transformations fat to fit thread on bodybuilding.com forum. There's a lot of inspiring stuff on there.

    Yeah its a difficult journey for sure but am sure the rewards are limitless. I guess am at 16% bf but I need to decrease to 10% to have a flat belly (unfortunately thats where I hold most of my fat)
    Im not sure how to go about the diet, what should be the percentage of my carbs consumption and what are best sources of protein with least fat
    Anyone who has gone through this will be much appreciated.... Lets get fit together!

    93kg to 78kg took 1 and half years. You need to be patient and have smaller goals and make fitness part of life rather than a 3 month thing or a 6 month thing.

    Remember to be patient and not get frustrated as first 2-3 months the impact isn't much.

    On exercise front:

    Started with heavy cardio to increase stamina,and now over the time have moved completely to weights.

    On the food front:

    Gave up all purpose flour,white rice(moved to brown rice once a week).
    Cook your own food(easy to keep an eye) and have nuts and dry fruits when craving for snacks.
    If you are in a western country Chia seeds,flax seeds,quinoa all could help as well.

    Best of Luck!

    I wish we could start a PP group where we start together, post picture updates and stay motivated. I wish to settle this forum's "meat vs veggie" debate for good.

    Idea of weight loss exclusively through a diet plan is not a good idea. Dieting causes mobilizations of body fat stores for generating energy for BMR. Too rapid weight loss means excessive mobilizations of fats and physiological metabolism then mainly revolves around Fats. All this happening in The Factory we call as LIVER. Rapid weight loss can cause Fatty Liver, Gall Bladder Stones and Dyspepsia.

    With or without dieting, workout is essential for physical and psychological well being. So in order to lose weight, we have to couple dieting with a workout plan.

    Over the years for me, this has alternated between weight loss and weight gain. In 4 months from March till July, I managed to lose apx 10Kg through Gym and avoiding use of Carbonated drinks and spicy meals but didn't have to cut down on diet extensively.I had Stopped my workout routine by July and weight had been steady for July and August. From Mid September till now, have gained 3 kgs and I'm planning another 3 months regimen of Gym starting from next month.

    If workout scares someone, High resistance cycling is an excellent and even better thing for calories burn out.

    Went to Multan in September 2014, weighing in at 215 lbs. While I wasn't fat, I wasn't in the best shape either(height covers up some of the weight) so I decided to get back in shape. Reduced my food intake to one meal per day(dinner) and stopped eating anything for breakfast and lunch apart from a large cup of coffee. This was made easier by the fact that the ridiculous weather in Multan and surrounding areas(job required travelling all across South Punjab) absolutely kills your appetite and the food in that part of the country is, to put it very mildly, not great. By the time I returned in October 2015, I was down to 172 lbs. In the year since, I've put some of the lost weight back on but at 182-183 lbs, I'm still well short of my self imposed 200 lb limit beyond which my body starts getting out of shape.

    I was always a fat kid until in year 11 I decided that enough was enough. I started eating healthily, weights, HIIT and I went from obese to skinny. I was so fat man I had double chins and there was another guy in my year who was fat and I looked like him but I lost a lot of weight and you must be blind to not see I've lost weight. Now though, I'm trying to get muscular but it just doesn't work. I eat a lot of calories and work out a lot but I am still skinny man. i'm actually embarrased to go gym cos people probably think "he's been coming here for ages and he's got no results" I can't be a hardgainer cos I'm not like a naturally skinny person. I take protein shakes and everything, I don't know why I don't get muscular but at least I went from fat to thin

    Do some exercise and take high protein diet, as protein unfolding is exothermic process and will help to burn fat at much faster rate.

    No matter what you do, don't go into kenogenic state. Seen many people starve themselves to rush back to their lean selves.

    I'm looking to shed some weight and this is the sort of approach I prefer since I'll be going back to gain muscle after losing the weight. How much fat did you lose with such an aggressive approach of yours? From what I've read and heard this approach makes you lose more muscle than fat since you body goes in survival mode.

    I'm the unlucky skinny fat kind. A fat belly with skinny arms. This is the typical body structure in my family. I've always found it hard to decide whether to lose weight and my belly and then go to the gym or the other way round. Not too excited about losing the belly first since I'll become super skinny with my already skinny body. But when I go to the gym with this belly it only becomes larger. A paradox.

    Never really measured body fat. Thing with this approach is that you should be careful not to drop your calorie intake too drastically and maintain a decent diet (in terms of quality, not quantity). I was doing about 600-700 calories under my BMR and maintaining a pretty good diet (lots of fruit, lean meat and some vegetables, just avoided carbs and fat). The weight loss wasn't too drastic at less than a pound a week.

    Don't shoot for a six-pack. The main goal is to get your body in to good shape and to feel good. Some people can get to six packs and still feel like crap. Look at guys like Azhar Ali, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq. I'm pretty sure they don't have six-packs, but they are in near perfect shape. Getting a six-pack is fine, but the goal should be to get in great shape overall.

    Eating clean, on a diet, making a sacrifice when it comes to eating habits is the hard part. Anyone can get up and go to the gym and exercise, lift weights and do cardio.

    It is so hard to give up vices like soft drinks, ice creams, milk shakes, sugar, sugar based beverages for very long. The body eventually reacts and you begin to crave for these things in 2.5-3 weeks again and it is back to square one.

    Having moved to Canada 4 years ago, i do miss my cook back home in Pakistan. It is indeed an art to cook deliciously, effectively and cleanly. It can lead to fatigue as well.

    According to science, the healthiest amount of body fat% is between 10-15%. I am currently at 25%, need to somehow reduce it.

    Whatever method you take, make sure you have a lot of self control and maintain your discipline. I'll pray for you.

    I lost 40 kg in 2 years. Went from 118 kg to 77 kg now.

    I eat brown roti with food twice a day. Still eat outside rarely. You just need to change your diet to remove all snacks between meals. Reducing the amount of food portions also helped.

    I wouldn't say I've reached the end of my weight loss. I still need to lose another 10 kg fat and then start gaining muscle mass which would look right for my height.

    I ran about 4 km everyday though I stopped that for the past few months because of some health issues.

    Maybe not 2-3 years ago; But he is in great shape now. Probably b/c all of the time he has spent w/Misbah and Younis. I know it's hard to believe Pakistani players are in good shape, but some of them are.

    I think the highest I've ever been is around 165 lbs after a junk-food fueled holiday to the US. But went down to my normal weight of 140 - 145 lbs within a few months.

    At the moment just over 150 lbs after another holiday and would like to go just below 140 lbs. Starting gym again soon.

    Been mentally disturbed so started eating comfort food and gained a lot of weight and became more stressed. Then work from home, lying on bed whole day, made things worse. Now after a proper job, at least I sit and walk, so have lost a bit of weight. Getting married, but instead of reducing weight, have invested in a sherwani which makes me look fit.

    If you can't do gym then just do body-weight at home. Also running is good.

    Weighed myself at the start of the year and I was shocked.

    I've been running/jogging/walking between 6km and 7km every evening for 6 months now and I've managed to lose 11kgs which is very pleasing.

    More work to do yet though.

    The highest I've ever weighed is 225 lbs but I cut down after. Currently 170 but my goal is to get to 190-195 once I start the bulk again. I hate maintaining it's so pointless.

    Weight last yr: 74kg
    Weight now: 68kg

    Keep your diet simple. Forget all the fad diets..they are temporary. I simply eat in moderation & do plenty of exercise. I’ll have a small breakfast & one main meal around 5-6. Cut out all junk food. I try to avoid eating after 7pm. Worked for me.

    Down from 178 to 174 which is around my ideal weight. I have been in the 10 pound range 165-175 for better part of a decade and I intend to stay there.

    I think cutting out snacking, chocolates, crisps etc really makes a difference. It's tough but if you put your mind to it and eat other healthier stuff instead of chocolates etc it definitely helps.

    Soft drinks are the biggest. Why do people put this garbage inside themselves?

    Also stress eating. A lot of times people just eat because they feel like it and not because they actually need fuel, and most of the time they do this, the foods they are snacking on are junk foods like chocolate, chips.

    At what body fat percentage do abs show? Or is it different for different people?

    A couple years ago I was 275 lbs and i went to the doctor for some routine blood work and she told me I had high cholesterol, very high uric acid, and I was on track for type 2 diabetes. It was a wake up call for me.Today I weigh 190 and iam in the best shape of my life. Feels amazing!

    8 hours of eating and 16 hours of not eating. so I would eat from 9 a.m to 6 p.m.
    I was never big on junk food, always been on a junk free diet, once or twice a week i'll have non-healthy food, such as bag of chips or candy.
    Also I was already on minimum sugar. If you can cut out sugar from your diet, it is the cheapest and readily available drug in every store on every continent. But that Kheer and gajjar Ka halwas, can't give up
    So during those 8 hours I eat almost anything that isn't junk food, by junk food I mean, pop open a bag and consume. Biryani isn't junk food neither is Nihari.

    Depends on your genetic fat distribution and how big your abs are. You should start seeing them when you're around 10% but it goes without saying that your abs obviously won't look very defined.

    How often do you train them?

    Thank you so much for the details. Looks interesting.

    I havent kept a seperate day for abs. I go to gym 6 days a week and train abs almost every day for like 10 minutes after i am done with my weight training. Doesnt seem to be working too well but i guess it has also to do with body fat percentage which i would think is around 15%. What would you suggest?

    6-7 years ago I went from 107kg to 83kg in 6months by cycling and counting calories. I didnt keep up the diet or the excersise so am back to 100kg again today. So 1 thing I would recommend is to make it a lifestyle change and don't stop excersing once you reach your goal as maintaining your weight is harder than loosing it.

    Yep, work on getting that percentage down. Keep your core tight while working out, it'll make doing abs easier for you.

    If you want to see how strong your core is, get someone to punch you there.
