Hello! I met my all time weight loss goal on Saturday! Now, I need to learn how to get off the calorie counting but maintain my current weight. I was excited to find this team. I look forward to hearing your experiences!

I agree with others here. I think the "higher" weight will give you more energy and muscle. I have friends that tried for the lower weight, only to feel sluggish and mentally dull. Not a good thing! Keep up the good work, but don't overdo it! emoticon

Glad to hear that, Kylar. We're just like mother hens here! You will have plenty of time in the future to determine if living with less food and more exercise is what you want. Unfortunately, sports that demand that athletes "make weight" or appear very thin can really mess with a person's mind and eating. You sound like you are already doing well. You have to find your happy weight, and it's not always what the outside influences say it "should" be. emoticon

So talking to some of the guys at the gym, I think I'm just gonna go with fighting at 167 for this first one at least. My weight's pretty much there, so I have 5 weeks to just focus on getting my technique better. With white belts, there'll be a bigger gap there than with any physcial attribute. I can keep working hard and get in better shape as well with this month.

@DONNAEDA I think I can get to featherweight. I have been thinking about it a lot tho. In jiu jitsu weigh ins are the day of and with the ~3lb gi on. Featherweight in 154 and lightweight is 167. I still have fat I can lose, and the first tournament got cancelled so I'll enter one a week later in the first week of August. That extra week will be huge. If I can get down to 155 the week of, I can drop a little bit of water weight to make it for the day of the fight. I am thinking about building my muscle up for this next month tho. maybe that will get me looking how I want and better results. I was thinking lightweight originally until the guy in our gym who is 6 foot and 180 and solid said he'd be fighting at lightweight. I'd get destroyed by someone that size. Figure I can drop lower and be one of the bigger guys there. I do need to make up my mind for certain tho. And very soon. 90% sure I'll go with featherweight.

is featherweight a realistic goal for you? That seems a little low

Kylar, congrats on your fantastic changes, not the least of which is your lifestyle changes. However, I have to tell you that there is no such thing as before and after. There is only before and during. You do have the advantage of not having spent years yo-yo-ing. I don't know how much of processed foods or sweets you eat now, but most people who maintain long term find ways to incorporate small amounts of these at predetermined times rather than foregoing them forever. Those are just the facts.

Good luck with getting ready for your competition! emoticon

At least the losing part. I've gone from about 210 in the fall semester of 2011 to a little under 165 now. I look good, feel great. Am finally not the big guy in the group. Feels awesome.

I still need to lose some weight now for a Brazilian Jiu jitsu tournament coming up. I plan at fighting at featherweight which is 154 pounds weigh in with the gi the day of. I'm looking forward to a not fun month of bombing my weight for that, but hopefully I'll be stronger than my opponents at that weight class.

I figure this 160-165 at 5'8" will be fine as my walk around weight. I'll just need to do some slow muscle building, using the fat I have left as fuel. Hopefully I can keep all these lessons I've learned from spark along the way with me into the future. And soon be able to actually eat more! haha, I'll keep it healthy like I am now, just bigger portions and not worry if I want to eat some chips or something. So glad I'm here now!
