View Full Version : From FAT to FIT!

Well I doubt anyone will get any oh so great info from this journal etc. I have to admit compaired to everyone on here I don't know crap about fitness. Basically I just want to get to 18% body fat, a pretty decent weight , be fit and look nice. As most people know its easier said then done.....but I already have come far..now I am ready to finish my journey. I lost 79 lbs so far...yeah I was more than fat I was obese....got into a bad wreck and ended up in therapy for two years due to injuries. Well when you can be active for a long time you know what happens then. I went from captain of the cheerleading team, dancer and gymnast of 9 years to this http://imagep.webphotos.iwon.com//1000019684/1000019684_1119200180630PM0.3824121.jpg GROSS huh! Well this is me on Halloween this year! http://imagep.webphotos.iwon.com//1000019684/1000019684_1119200180722PM0.5281946.jpg Much better but still need some work. In that pic I was about 240. I am now today at 227. This is basically something for me to keep myself going until I reach my goal..and even then some. It will just be boring bable etc etc about my journey...feel free to comment on anything.

Here is a quick run down...
Height-5'10
Current weight-227
Body Fat Percentage (2 months ago and last check in)-25% I know it's pretty low for my wieght...I have to much muscle in my opinion:rolleyes: I am working on going down a bit.

Basically I will try to log my activities and what I ate for the day. Since I didn't keep tract what i ate today I will start that part tomorrow.

Excersise for today was-
I worked out my arms, chest and back (muscles) today. I now do light weights at high reps to prevent from building anymore mucle.
I did my ball crunches-75 of them.
I did 30 mins of cardio on the tradmil at 7.0 incline...3.5speed.

I need to incorporate some cardio in the mornings..but I have been on an odd sleeping schedule with work so we will see what i can do about that.

As far as diet I am playing around a bit trying to find a good setting for me.

Any feed back is welcome:)

Dont! bigger muscles burn more calories.
No lean woman will look too bulk without using steroids.
muscles will never grow when your losing weight anyway.
just do them heavy and work them hard. that way you wont lose any and when you get slim you will sexy instead of like a stick.

when your losing weight like you are theres no way you would be making your muscles grow.

As soon as I show you a pic of my calf muscle...(whenever I get it up) You will see what I am talking about:rolleyes: it's too much to me. Your right I don't want to be a stick...but I don't want to be too buff either. I would rather get "smaller" and if I was unhappy with muscle amount...work up to it then try to work down from it!


Thanx for the kind words everyone:)

11-26-2001, 06:37 AM
A couple suggestions, first, i would start counting your calories, you seem to be really low, you don't wanna reduce to many cals too soon, otherwise your metabolism will shut down and tell you to f*ck off. Second, i would change pasta with brown rice or something, if you are gonna eat pasta, opt for the wheat pasta. Next, you need more protein, get in some tuna, eggs, etc. Finally, on cardio, try to do stuff that doesn't bore you to death, for example if you are gonna walk, do it outside, you're in florida for God sake, enjoy the weather.

Hey thanx for the info! I have a hard time eating a lot....so I have to break it down into small meals otherwise I will feel sick all day and not eat at all. my problem is I usually dont eat enough......but how much should I eat as far as calories go etc??? I will add some egg whites to my meal plan...and some more protein as well. hard for me to eat...without feeling sick. SO I have to take that slow:) I am getting better:)


Ok today so far!

I woke up late because I went to bed 8 AM....sigh

1-low fat cottage cheese and 3 slices of lean turkey

2--low fat cottage cheese and a veggie garden burger, i slice of fat free cheese.

3- bananna

4-3 egg whites!

5-bannana

6-2 slices of turkey with two slices of fat free cheese and one tangerine.

7-cabbage.

I had way to much fruit today!



Excerise, worked my arms and back today on the machines....did my ball crunches and 30 mins or cardio on the elip machine:)

11-26-2001, 06:42 PM
Awesome progress, Celestial...you are on the right track!

I agree with pup on checking your cals. If you have a lot of muscle and are active, you need a lot more food than your average female.

Good luck and keep writing...

Pup
11-26-2001, 07:34 PM
The general rule is to start at about 500 cals below your BMR. To figure your bmr, just mulitply your bodyweight by 12, that'll give you a raw figure, then just subtract 500 from that number and go from there. Good idea on the egg whites, they are easy protein and not overly filling.

Celestial
11-27-2001, 02:57 PM
Ok I just got up..my sleeping schedule is so screwed but I have to make sure I get enough sleep and rest for my body. I end up eating breakfast now and my last meal at 4 am then going to bed around 6am or so.....

TODAY is the first day I am going to start hydroxycut...just took my pill then I am eating in a half hour.


1-turkey bacon, tomatao , fat free miracle whip and two slices of low calorie bread. I will count the calories today!(525)

2-2 slices of lean turkey, 3 slices of cheese and 3 egg whites.
(430)

3-Tangerine (cals???) Still have two meals or so to go!

4-fish (200 cals), creamed corn (100), canoli(???)....errrrrrrrrr ekkkk ice cream (300) LOL


Excersise- Did my squats, ball squats, bridge dips, ball crunches and worked out my legs, thighs anbd butt on the machines:) Then did 30 mins of intense cardio on the Elip machine:)

damn good posts Rob. Karma for you. Oh wait...

anyway, first things first, i'm not sure why it's messed up, but you definately wanna sort out your body clock babe.

secondly, i agree with rob about the counting of cals - once you hit a sticking point without counting them you're gonna be running in circles so well done there.

Thirdly, rob is right about getting most of your cals from protein. [approx] 30% of protein's cals are lost purely from their own metabolism, so it makes sense to eat more - even if muscle conservation isn't your priority.

other than that - best of luck! :)

I got through a normal day like anyone else does...but when I have breakfast and my meals etc its at my time and not everyone else...kinda confusing I suppose. But it will have to be this way for another 2 months or so...I dont like it but I have to make money some way:(

I started counting cals todaY:)

Celestial
11-28-2001, 02:17 PM
Yesterday was my first day on hydroxycut...I had a bit of the jitters but i drank a lot of water and I had a much harder workout....that stuff seems to make me sweat more and have more energy! Hopefully the jitters with resolve when my body gets used to the stuff. Well anyways I just woke up and about to have breakfast.....more to come later:)


Meal 1-4 hard boiled egg whites and a tangerine!

2- HALF a siz inch sub with everything on it as far as veggies and turkey...lil mayo and some cheese

3- other half of the sub and one cookie

lots of water

Excersise- all my arm, back and chest machines, ab crunches and 15 mins or cardio (gym closed)

IGF-1

yeah as your tolerance to the caffiene increases you should feel less jittery :) keep up the good work :D

Celestial
11-30-2001, 04:04 PM
OK guys things are getting really busy for me and I cant type up everything I do everyday. I am keeping tract of my calories etc and going to the gym everyday. I will post my pics and achivments as they come!:) My current weight is 225:) Below is picture from above of me a month ago and then two from within the last two days a 16pd difference. I need to see the pictures to reinforce myself about the difference..no matter how i feel, what it says on the scale etc..if I don't see a difference in a picture I get depressed...I think I have problems:) LOL Anyways it's my way to reinsure myself. I didn't relaize the difference 15 pounds made until my BF pointed it out to me when I had the pics next to each other.... slowly but surely right?

Celestial
12-01-2001, 02:20 PM
Ok I am down to 224 now:) Been loising a pound a day since I started taking hydroxycut! Obviously the stuff orks pretty well. I figured out how to get over my cardio bordness. I was talking to a friend of mine who plays pro ball and we were talking about fitness. He gave me the idea to do a few machines...steady and keep my heart rate up then jump on a cardio machine for 5-7 mins...then do some more weight machines...then do it again...more wights then 15-20 min cardio...This way I end up with lots more cardio!!!!! We will see its results!:)

Celestial
12-02-2001, 01:52 PM
Hey all. well i took yesterday off as far as any excersise. My knee was hurting pretty bad and I figured I could probably use a day off. Soooo thats that. My knee is still hurting today but I am going to be careful and wear my brace etc...it just happens every once in a while from my old injury...it will be sore:(

Celestial
12-02-2001, 07:21 PM
Well I feel like crap because I didnt hit the gym again today:( It was my leg day and I figured since my knee still hurts I shouldnt go and do my leg day....let it heal more:(:( just takes time which sucks..makes me feel lazy:(

Celestial
12-03-2001, 07:18 PM
Well my knee is stil bummed and i am getting majorly frustrated. I can not do cardio because of the pain...sigh...so I am going to go in get my abs done and my arm/back.....I am hoping it will feel better tomorrow! This sucks:(

I am at 220...I remember thinking to myself when I was really heavy that I would feel good/thinner here at this weight. Wss I wrong. I still feel big and I am semi unhappy feeling with my results....I dunno why to be honest with you. I feel just as big, if not bigger then I did to begin with..what a wierd feeling!

Celestial
12-24-2001, 06:09 PM
Ahh I went up to 223 then back to 220. its that time of the month so it was water weight ...I am feeling prety crappy. But I decided that I am going to add another hour of cardio to my workouts in the morning....for the new year and see what kind of results I get!

Celestial
01-11-2002, 10:39 PM

Must say I dont weigh myself everyday anymore cause it was getting to my head and not in a good way. I try for just once a week. I been good about going to the gym every day 6 days a week. Only thing is I am going camping this weekend and will end up taking one day off:( extra...unless I come home before the gym closes...so that sorta depresses me a lot. Also I have been dealing a lot with stress and my body image and things have been hard:cry: tommorow I see a doc and maybe he can help me get things straightened out so I can get on the right path as far as taking care of my anxiety problem.

Hey Celestial, how are you? I'm usually just a lurker on these type of forums, but this thread made me register, just to post a reply. Your transformation is completely inspiring and a greay motivator. Just wanted to say well done and keep going.

ps. you are very beautifull

pps. The bit you said about hating yourself; Don't try and suddenly force yourself to like you. You can't do it that way. Just try and live your life as happily as possible, then eventually (may be 10 days, may be ten years) it will heppen. (by the way I'm in a fairly similar state)

smell ya later

I am game !!!

Ya it seems as though I am obsessed with your journal!! Its just that you have come a long way and made excellent progress. I would hate to see you go back to your old "ways". You are a VERY pretty gal, inside and out. So if my cheering and words of encouragement keep you going than it is well worth it. If there is anything else I could do just let me know; I am here for ya. Feel free to shoot me an email or catch me on MSN messenger niners40@hotmail.com
