well i started late last year when i was 15 almost 16 and weighed about 117kg (no pics of that weight though =S) and now im 16 almost 17 so this transition took pretty much a year but i wasnt until 3 months ago when i had lost enough weight where i could run a decent way without getting tired before the weight really started to shed thus as many of u might know my reccomendations of running

this was taken on the 9th of january 07 (roughly 106kg)

this one i cant remember (roughly 100kg)

this one 2nd november 07 (roughly 85kg)

and last but not least this one taken today 6 of january 08 (roughly 78KG weighed at night time so mayb less)

EDIT: a massive thx to warboss alex who aswered countless stupid questions and for the great threads i also utilised alot of advice given by throttle espi A-Unit and EFFORT
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

Fantastic transformation, now it is time to pack on some mass!!!

Hard to put a number on your bf because your abs are quite small. I'd say 12%ish as a guess.

As for your chest if you put 15-20lbs of muscle on and your chest fills out a bit that might take care of the problem.

Get a journal going on here,

Wow...what an inspiration! Thanks so much for posting those pics, and congrats to you for a job well done...your pics attest to an exceptional work ethic and reslience...you should be very proud of yourself, for you are no doubt going to inspire a lot of people on this board.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure your BF% in your recent pic is between 10 and 12%.

Keep up the great work, and don't forget to work your legs. ;)

Perhaps you could detail your diet and specific traning methods?

Awesome man

I'm going to put your thread into the sticky, it's always good to have some success stories, especially with pictures.

i intend to do the same in a couple years when i feel ive achieved enough, and your thread just inspired me to keep the foot on the gas.

cheers mate

Greate work! =) Let me give you some advice for when youre done dieting. Stay at that weight for four months. The body is used to be at a much higher bodyfat, so if you begin "bulking" or simply eating more right after cutting, the fat will pile up again. Bulking right after cutting is essentially the same as yo-yo dieting, and I'm shure you know how that works. A four month recovery period/maintainence period followed by a slow increase in calories monthly will create a new and lower "set-point" for your bodyfat. As a former fat boy who lost 25 kilos and balooned up 13 kilos eight weeks later, lets just say that skinny boy tacktics for bodybuilding dont apply to us.

Other than that - good work! :)

how i did it was i tried a few different approaches but it never really took off until i pretty much followed warbosses lose fat and gain muscle thread except i took it to the extreme and cut ALL simple carbs out of my diet and had about 150g complex carbs a day i wasnt fussed about losing muscle so i ran 4 times a week at 60% intensity for 10 minutes and trained 3 times a week using the 3 day split i trained as if i was bulking so i did not lose too much muscle and even gained some.
i find for fat people any non retarded diet works but cardio was a key aspect

ive recently gone onto this diet in the last 4 weeks and its absolutely amazing i cant believe no1 has ever mentioned it before on one of the days i get to eat 1000g of carbs and still lose fat its amazing i reccomend it to every1 whos 15%BF or under as theres easyer approaches for fattys =)
