BTW, I've managed to keep my weight down at about 176lbs. 2018 July, I was a solid 229lbs.
Probably not if you're talking really heavy weight. I was talking to the other top guys at the meet and pretty much all of us had been injured pretty recently in some way. Part of the sport, I guess. There was a man and woman both over 70 years old competing though.

Congrats on the weight loss. 50lbs is a lot to get off and keep off.

Hovering around 221 atm. Body seems to be doing its recomping thing again. Going to start making a rough estimate of calories through the day just to keep things ticking over.. am only 10lbs from my goal for now.

Enough about me, lets talk about you, what do you think about me?

186.8 lbs today (187.6 lbs last Monday). Less than a pound lost. Not bad considering I had a cold and didn't workout for a few days and ate like ****. Gonna try to hit 185 by next Monday

Oh. I didn't know you were competing! What is your sport called? Thanks, the keto diet pretty much handles the weight, now. I do body weight exercises only just for some basic fitness.

Powerlifting. Just did my fifth competition over the weekend. I gave a short recap of the competition towards the end of the last page of this thread. Didn't go as well as I'd hoped.

I'm not going full keto, but about to switch back to a lower carb diet. My girlfriend wants to lose 50lbs and I'm trying to be supportive by dieting with her. I'm not trying to lose as much as she is though. I got up to 220lbs to fill out my weight class for this competition and will get back around 205-210lbs where I'm more comfortable.

I started lifting weights but it's a bit demoralising because I'm not getting stronger even though im a complete beginner. I get enough protein and hit my macros and calories at a surplus, I get enough sleep, my form isn't too bad so I just wonder why I can't add weight every week and get the so called noob gains. Maybe I wasted them when I did calisthenics or something but even in that I couldn't progress and my lifts are incredibly weak.

Are you following a beginner routine like Starting Strength or Stronglifts 5x5? If you've exhausted beginner gains you'd want to move to something more intermediate program wise.

I started with calisthenics for a long time and when I started with weights I kinda went blind through the beginner stage doing my own thing and my first real program was an intermediate one.

Girlfriend and I went grocery shopping for low carb stuff and are switching over this week. 211lbs this morning.

What is your age? How tall and heavy are you? When did you start lifting weights? I would check your work out program. Perhaps you are lifting to often? You need to let your muscles rest between workouts. You are likely doing something wrong because normally you should put a decent of amount a weight the first months.

That is really cool, I don't know how you can handle the anxiety in front of all those people watching you but I'm glad that you're part of a sport and making something of yourself. I wish you the best of luck in your sport!

Thank you! I could never talk in front of even a handful of people, but doing something I'm good at in front of people doesn't bother me too much. I am super nervous before the first lift and then after that's successful I'm pretty much good on the anxiety.

184.6 lbs today (186.8 last week). Cutting back on junk food seemed to help. Going to continue to do the same thing this week.

Almost two weeks post meet. Transitioning into an off season routine in the gym and also just doing stuff for fun. Mainly crazy AMRAP sets. Weight was 209lbs this morning. Doing mostly lower carb now. Once I get some time to sit down and come up with a full meal plan I'll go over to carb cycling. Been adding 20 minutes of cardio after each gym session since the meet. Definitely feel better doing that and dropping that extra 10lbs.

Moving forward try to get leaner at 205-210lbs, work on cardio and mobility, and stay away from the comp lifts for a few months.

Been out of the game for a bit because I have had a sickness that has lasted 2 weeks. I see myself starting up again in a weeks time tho.

I need to lose 20 lbs. I've developed a bit of a paunch. I'm too young for a paunch. harumph!

I spent 80 min at the gym lifting weights and cycling. I'm doing anaerobic exercises on days I'm not lifting weights. My biggest challenge is in watching what I eat. This is especially challenging with all the meds my doctor keeps putting me on. None of these meds are working, aside from the ativan they want me to stop taking, and they mostly cause me to gain weight.
