    So as I explained in another thread ( http://www.tweak3d.net/forums/showthread.php?52045-Manorexia-Is-Fun! ) essentially on a whim I decided to drop from 175 to 150 pounds.

    And I dedicate this thread to Torx :p

    Here is where I started:

    [​IMG]

    It's not an true 'before' picture, because since I wasn't planning on going this far when I started, I didn't think to take one. However this is within 2 pounds of where I was when I started this process and a very similar level of fitness.

    ( even I have my limits for what I'll have my face on when it comes to pictures on the internet :p )

    Anyways, here is what I look like now all the way down to 149 pounds, 26 from where I started:

    [​IMG]

    Weighing in last night.

    I feel tiny right now, it's kind of weird how small I have gotten. Haven't been this light since high school, but I don't think I've ever been at this level of fitness before.

    [​IMG]

    Same shot as the 'before' picture for comparison.

    [​IMG]

    Back/shoulders.

    [​IMG]

    And some veins :p

    According to some measurements I have taken, I'm right around 9% body fat, which according to this is officially 'ripped!" :p

    Anyways, that's been my recent project. I feel great, I'm happy with how I look ( well, I usually am ;) ) and now I plan on building up muscle to around 160, trying to maintain a similar low body fat level.

    Yep yep, good times.

    lookin good man, yea you slimmed down quite alot.

    i suggest doing some preacher curls, hammer curls, and concentration curls to build that inner muscle, brachialis, of the bicep.. to give that upper arm closer to the elbow some thickness.
    dont forget, the triceps make up like 70% of your upper arm.

    anyways, you looks pretty damn ripped already. and yes vascularity is quite obvious
    absolutely no MRI NO2 for YOU!

    oh, and some variation pullups and dumbell bent over side pullups to, to get those lats bigger.
    maybe someone else can chime in as well. your job should provide you with all the exercise you really need.

    Had I know you were doing this I would have worked with you some. I've lost 12lbs since January and I'm looking to lose 5 more to hit 8%.

    Those aren't nipples! They're crane hoist attachment points! :)

    Good luck with that. I don't trust any form of dieting, since it just sets people up on the yo-yo gain/loss rollercoaster ride for the rest of their life, and this can be more unhealthy than just being slightly overweight. Nonetheless, I wish you the best. Enjoy your new abdominal washboard!

    gah! add that to the fiddy penis memory i cant get rid of!

    EDIT: also, goto walmart or target and buy yourself a nice scale! a nice digital scale like mine, its made by healthometer and didnt cost but 30 or so bucks.
    it calculates body mass, bone mass, weight, water percentage, and BMI. this will save you time on calculating it yourself. you input a few variables like height and age, etc, then weigh and it does the rest. it looks like this but its got two metal strips to stand on

    Awesome cut. I really want to try something similar. How long did it take you? Did you eliminate alcohol as well?

    no, lol.
    upon opening out the box, you have to "program" it by inputing certain variables, it stores that data.. then everytime you get on the scale it uses your current weight and calculates it with the stored data to get a bunch more shit like bmi and body fat percentage.
    once you set it up, its as easy at two button presses with your toe, then you stand on it, it gives you information.

    sounds like fiddy is becoming anal about calculating all this, so a scale like this would be great for him.
    i check everything everyday.

    Pfft, that's not how I workout. I don’t stare at an area and then spend trying to specifically build it.

    And the job does a lot but not all of it. I have to do extra to see real improvements.

    I don't work out on regular times or days, so I'm not a good workout partner. Close to 8% eh? Lets see some pics!

    I don't think of it as 'dieting' at all, I think of "dieting" as something overweight middle-age women do after watching an especially emotional Oprah, then fall off the wagon eating a gallon of ice cream. I'm just not that kind of person ;)

    Eh, I'm not into that kind of nonsense. My scale works great, and it tells me all I need to know, my weight. Those numbers you are getting are probably far from accurate, and don’t mean a whole lot anyways. I’m not concerned with those kind of things actually.

    Ugh, I loath the forums that sit around talking about ‘cutting’ and ‘bulking’ and all that stuff. I’m just not into looking at working out that way. This honestly was in large part a “lets see if I can do it and what it looks like” thing, and I went all the way down to 150 because it was an amusingly small number.

    Anyways, it was around 2.5 months, but I wasn’t really going for speed, and since I hadn’t planned ahead to where I was hoping to get, I made two steps down in my food intake along the process. As for alcohol, I didn’t quit, but only had maybe 2-3 a week. Diet tip: crack cocaine is calorie free!

    Nope.

    Aw, thank you :p

    Here is the short version:

    My workout: live my life

    My diet: eat way less.

    Not much help is it? But seriously. I’ve been an athlete most of life, and I live a very physically active and demanding job and lifestyle. It’s not something that could be written down or replicated. For example on Thursday I went to work, where I pruned and drug brush for maybe 6 hours, and climbed trees and pruned in them for maybe 1.5 hours. Friday I went back country skiing, hiking in snow uphill for 3 hours with telemark skis, boots and skins on my feet. Then spent an hour skiing back down. Then I skied 3k into my cabin with a backpack. On Saturday, skied 3k out of my cabin, then I went on a walk/hike in the desert for 3 hours. On Sunday, I went to work, where I drug brush and carried wood for 4 hours, then went home and jump-roped for 10 minutes, followed by 40 minutes of weight lifting.

    As for my diet, I don’t think it was anything unusual. Pretty much just my regular foods, only less of it, way less of it. For breakfast, I’d have a banana, a small glass of juice, and some cereal and granola in 1% milk with berries, or cream-of-rice/wheat/bran with berries in it. Lunch was an apple, and a whole wheat sandwich roll with turkey, lettuce, cheese and tomato. Dinner would be some pasta/rice with steamed veggies and a glass of milk. Now that I’ve dropped as far as I want to go, I’m adding a bit more, adding a yogurt to breakfast, more veggies to lunch, and just more food in my dinners.

    Loosing weight and building muscle really isn’t that complicated, it’s really not magic.

    Well yah, I sort of think that too, which is why I want to build 10 pounds of muscle now ;)

    Wow. Pretty good. How tall are you?

    I'm not normally one for trying to attain any particular body image but that's probably about where I'd like to be ideally. I've recently gotten my weight down to about ~166 at 6'2" which I've been pretty happy with, and essentially just through simple moderation and being a little more conscious of what I am eating. Also I've cut breakfast to only fruits and grains/granola which has been one of the better things I've ever done for myself.

    I'm hoping this summer with just biking to work/around and a little bit of basic exercise I'll be able to start building a little muscle just so I don't look quite so scrawny. Especially my chest/arms.

    But good work sir.

    6ft 2in @ 166lbs! that sounds kinda gross. I mean good job and all, but whats your bone structure? My shoulders are very wide. when I lose weight it all disapears on sides, I look very creepy! i'm built like an ape! When I was down to 190lbs 17% body fat my ribs were showing.

    Damn dude you're looking awesome.

    Tay's been on a super get-fit kick... makes me feel bad when I sleep in and he's pumping iron out in the garage. Or when I'm having a beer and he's on the treadmill.
