I'm David, 26, from Ohio. I've been on a weight loss / fitness regimen for about a year and a half, and I know it has to be a lifelong decision or I'll go right back to being big. I just have one of those metabolisms. Anyway, I eat as fat-free and low cal as I can, and this seemed like a good place to find / trade lo-cal tips and progress.
I'm much like myfaerieaura who just posted, in that I've lost a lot of weight, and that feels good and all, but I'm not fit and tone where I want to be, and I have skin that hangs off me like some kind of weird wet paper bag. I'm currently 140 and I've achieved my goal in terms of weight, but now I need to not concentrate on the number as much as muscle mass. I'm currently really wanting nice abs.
I don't have weights or machines, so I mostly do calisthenics. I try to do 130 situps and 80 push ups in a daily half hour workout. I also (obviously) love playing DDR, so my legs are at least as tone as I want them.
I currently get under 5 grams of fat and under 2,000 cals a day, which I know isn't ideal, but I'm rather obsessed with getting and staying fit. I'm kind of a head case about it. Anyway I know this is a constant battle because the day I go back to living and eating as I used to, I'll balloon right back up. So I'm here to share in the support any way I can, and hope to make many friends. Hi to all!
