I'm now, just, at the same weight I was before Christmas. If I keep going at this rate I should be at my goal weight around Easter or so. Time will tell.

The real struggle with losing weight/muscle is that I no longer have a nice cushioned ass to sit on. Can really feel hard seats nowadays.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Also I get cold easier, which while annoying in winter is welcome in summer.

Shaking legs out after doing a figure four stretch is almost orgasmic.

They're over there, by their theremin.

Did you sort a home gym out?

We're looking to get a power rack in our garage with some overtime money I've got coming in, but mirafit just sold out this week of their low and mid tier models. :(

My weight loss is going very well though, I'm down to 87.5KG (192CM tall, starting weight two years ago was 136KG). My original goal was 86KG, but I still have some flab around my midriff, so might just keep losing till it's gone. I really miss strength training though.

I hope Ad7 doesn't start making fun of me as a gym bro. :cry:

That's great progress Winkle! I'm finding a similar issue with you, in that I'm having to lose a bit more weight that I realised to get as trim as I want. I'm 6'1 and my current goal is 75kg, and I'm currently 80kg. When I was 88kg a couple of years ago I didn't think I'd need to go that low, but I'm starting to think I might even need to go down an extra couple but I'll see how it goes.

Wow! Very impressed!

I wonder if it's loose skin rather than any actual flab hiding the abs?

I had a gym set up in my rents garage from when I was younger and competing. SO I've been very lucky to be able to train while I've been stuck here. Moving away soon so will be taking 5-6 weeks off until gyms open up again.

It's both, but I'm still seeing changes from dieting, so it isn't just skin. The abs might get more noticeable, but I'm looking to be healthier above all. Looking good would be a bonus. :lol:

150kg bench is absurd :lol: my PB deadlift is only slightly over that at 155!
