Starting Weight: ~235-245 lbs
Previous Check-in: 187.2 lbs
Current Weight: 184.4 lbs
Bust-Waist-Hip: 35.5"-31.75"-40"

I'm still doing it! But there was an incident the other day that makes me slightly worried that I'm starting to get too fixated on starting to compulsively exercise. My sister was kicked off a new ride at the mall because she was too fat to fit in the seat. And she's not upset about that at all. Now all I can think about is how much I should be exercising more. Part of me is seriously considering getting ankle weights to wear at work...

Well, it sounds to me like you're well on your way. As long as you're consciously working on it, there's no need to stress. I'm sorry that happened though.

Height: 5'4"
Initial Weight: 177
Previous Weigh-in: 149lbs
Current Weight: 145lbs

Ranmt first ever half marathon today, and thought I'd have a weigh-in to see how it's going. Would love to lose 6 more pounds by Animazement (end of May). We'll see!

I took new measurements and progress pictures today. I am well on track to my goal of 21% bf by the end of may. I want to get to at least 20% by August so i think I can easily do that.

How do you find your body fat percentage, anyway?

There's a few ways to find body fat percentage. You can use a caliper, use the water or air displacement methods (expensive). For not so accurate, but cheaper methods, there's just finding a list of pictures of people at difference body fat %s and comparing, biometric impedance scales, you can find you BMI (I dislike this because it just compares height and weight, which ignores fat/muscle ratios), you can take your measurements and do the math.
Best methods would be the fat caliper or the look and compare methods.

It's really slow progress, but better it come off slowly and stay off.

Current weight: 155lbs

I think I figured out why I'm losing weight so slowly - I'm away at school and am on a meal plan. Everything has a lot of salt; I think I'm retaining water. My stomach looks/feels funny, but then again, I haven't been this weight since middle school and kind of don't know what a stomach of this weight/muscle mass should look like.

Either way, four weeks until ACen. Can I get rid of those last five pounds? :3

My weight goes up and down over the week but each month it is 4-8 lbs lower. MY BF has gone from 30% to 20%. Pants have dropped from 42 waist to 36, so very happy about that!

No dieting, just eating unprocessed foods. Eggs, steak, chicken, fish, fruit, yogurt, salads, rice and sweet potatoes. An occasional cocktail on the weekends, but pretty clean.

Previously 150-155 lbs.
Now hovering around 140 with slightly more muscle.
Aiming for 135 with muscle.
