>>159874>133 lbs >goal weight: 110 or 120 lbs
(Probably more since it was about last month I checked by the doctor. No, I don't have a scale yet)>36-31-38
(Not sure if it's 100% correct since I had on clothes)>5"6.5 and should be still growing>skinnyfat>most of my fat goes to my upper arms, thighs and stomach
I though I always had a pear/hourglass figure since my upper body like my shoulders are pretty broad, then it curves in, then it kinda goes out with a bump by my hip bone, then goes back out which makes me look Like I have a big bum and thighs from the front, and skinny flabby ass legs with fat in the back(noticeable while I'm sitting mostly). Also, as I mentioned before, most of my fat collects in the stomach area, so while I may look decent from the front, I have a very
noticeable stomach from the sides.
I just want to get toned mostly, but I'm just really unmotivated(making myself feel bad in the end when I eat a big meal and end up even more unmotivated than before).
How do you figure out bf %?
My body looks like kooters but with much bigger tits
Just realized that I didn't reply to the right person: >>159876
Is meant for >>159866

i got mine measured at the doctors a long time ago. you can do "meausrements" to try and figure it out yourself but tbh i think they are always wrong and bullshit. most fit girls are around 20%. average girls are 25%. anorexics are around 15%.
thats why i dont believe the first poster who said she was 12% - that is not a healthy % for a female - only for men. men can be 12% but they have to roid/go on DNP to lose the fat. 12% for a girl is equivalent to 2-5% for a guy. its just not likely, especially if you're 95 lbs at 5'5", thats practically a healthy weight lol.
i'd guestimate my bf% to be around 18-20%. i have abs, so there's no way i'm that fat.
i want to get down to a 22" waist at least. i've arbitrarily set my goal to 99lbs. i've been this weight before and looked a lot fatter, but now i carry a lot more muscle so i look like i did around 97-98lbs.>>159877
you can estimate bf% with online calculators, but the most reliable way that is easily done is with calipers i believe.>>159880
this. if you look at bodybuilders, women that drop to 11% are creepy looking. 15% is already very, very low bf for a woman.>>159879
ugh, i want to waist train. i have a corset, but between the gym and work, i don't really have time to wear it. i need the flexibility at work…
you can get a corset to wear to bed. i know a lot of people wear theirs to bed. i have one too and i need to start wearing it tbh because my back is fucked up and it really makes my back look better.
do you have big boobs, just wondering?
oh, i thought people were insane and wore their regular ones to bed. i have definitely heard of people wearing theirs 23/7 and only removing it to shower, but yeah, i didn't know you could get one to wear in bed.
my boobs are regular b's. maybe even small b's now. does my chest measurement seem big? it went up over 1" when i started bench pressing seriously…
I do, yes.>>159871>>159872
Just a bit - I have pretty wide hips compared to my waist and my legs are very thin, so they don't quite match up with the rest of my body.
If you have a history with ED and binging, you really shouldn't eat under 1000 kcals. That way it's easier to fall back into an ED or give in more to your binges.
It's best to calculate your TDEE and cut 500 kcals.
I've calculated it on Scooby's website, I have no idea how much exercise you get so I entered sedentary.
Your TDEE would be 2070 kcals so it'd be a good idea to eat around 1570 kcals a day. Careful though, when you drop enough weight, you'll need to recalculate your TDEE.http://scoobysworkshop.com/calorie-calculator/
Good luck anon, you can do it!

ugh I don't even know my weight right now, I'd say probably 140 ;_;
I'm only 5'4"
I really REALLY need to get back into shape or into anorexia. I know it's stupid but I am bulimic right now and just tend to keep unhealthy routines. I just can't keep gaining. It's killing me
Are you seriously this stupid?
I think you must have a tumor too.

>used to be obese
>lost a lot of weight
>upper arms hang low, they wobble to and fro
>probably could tie them in a knot and maybe in a bow
I hate it. I store a lot of fat in my arms and thighs. I'm flat and have very thick upper arms, so it makes me look very disproportionate. I don't go outside without wearing sleeves, which makes summer unbearable. I've been exercising with light weights ( 2 - 4 pounds ) for over a year and my arms have only gotten bigger. I've got a lot of muscle somehow and fat that hangs underneath when I flex. I don't think it's genetics, seeing how I'm the only one in the family who looks like they're wearing arm floaties.
Is surgery my only option? My arms look worse than they did when I was obese and I didn't think that was possible.
What if you try really concentrating on your body composition? AKA, increasing overall muscle mass relative to fat mass. That would mean moving up to higher weights and working on putting on muscle mass. I don't think it will turn you into the incredible hulk but it should help firm up your arms. Just a thought, since you seem open to suggestions.
Fat cells don't go away, apparently they just shrink and expand or new ones come in. Worst thing ever for former fat kids.

I carry a lot of my weight in thighs/hips/arms. I absolutely hate my legs, they're cellulite ridden and have stretch marks all along the inside of my upper thigh and back of my knees. I was too dumb as a young teen to use lotion/moisturizer, so I'm just stuck with it. I also have big fat sausage fingers, and swollen wrists.
I have always been big, and for the longest time I've had terrible hygiene and bodycare. Starting to change that though.
Same here. I thought I was the only one.
It could be worse, I guess
These were my measurements when I was depressed and hit 130lbs. I ate nothing but almonds and a single can of green beans for a few weeks.
Got me back down to 113lbs reeeal quick.
Can you give me a rough estimate of how many calories you ate per day? I'd like to thin out before the stress of the school year really kicks in. Plus, I won't have as much free time to eat as I had during summer.
Anyway it's a good thing I like almonds.
I honestly couldn't tell you. I was in a weird spot then and specifically was looking for the smallest caloric intake that wouldn't let me starve.
>1 or 2 cans of long green beans>handful of unsalted almonds>celery>water
That was my whole diet. If you're used to eating and/or not ready to lie down and rot to death than this will probably be hard. Also, I feel I should mention that I popped back up to 118 and stayed there for over a year after I began eating more regularly again.
Im 5'1 and im 130 lbs
I know how you feel anon
I'm not athletic at all so how can I have more muscle mass? i'm confused sorry
for the record i'm 95 pounds of wimp but not "thin" looking either
File: 1440637557994.gif (693 KB, 500x281, flubber.gif)
Thanks anon, I'm trying to be less self conscious about it. Still feeling like flubber tho. >>159941
So are you wearing larger clothes? cause baggy clothes are the shit! I wear them all the time. I don't even have a bathing suit… haven't gone to a beach/pool in years. I know the feeling, but don't give up, there are options like trying to get fit with toning exercises (I am not sure if they reduce excess skin, but they can't be bad for us,right?) or worst case scenario a skin removal surgery. Stretch marks tho… I feel that they look gross af, most of the time people don't notice but when they do they usually think they are scars and ask me "How did you get those scars?" I should start thinking about a dramatic story behind them.
I'm trying to lose weight tho, wanna be 160lb

I have a really wide torso/shoulders and i hate it
i tried waist training but it just made my shoulders and flat chest look AWFUL
i sometimes wish i didnt take swimming as a child
33 - 24 - 35
like… my stats would be perfect if I was 5 inches taller. hate being short>>159974
ugh how can you have the same measurements but be 10lbs heavier than me? I must be really skinny fat.
and I find it crazy that there's a 26lbs difference between you and >>159974
yet we all have pretty similar measurements (+/- 1-2 inches). How's that possible?
I have quite a broad frame and look spoopy and fat at the same time.
Like overly visible ribs, chestbones, hipbones, spine, places where people usually lose weight last.
I'm quite unlucky I guess…
sorry, I didn't mean to make you feel bad.
I'm the same regarding visible ribs, collar bones, spine and such.
Mostly I'm confused about >>159974
because I had completely different measurements at that weight and they are even an inch smaller than the two of us.
Nah you didn't make me feel bad.
People just lose weight at a different rate and have different frames. Eventually you stop getting much smaller (gaining muscle could still help though), since it isn't like you can shrink your frame.
There are ana chans with a BMI of 15 who are stuck with a 24 inch waist, and there are fat people who manage to have flat stomachs. Genetics are just weird.
I'm the 125lbs anon.
It might be because I strength train more than I do cardio, so I buildup a lot of muscle. I also gain muscle really quickly, which sucks for my calves. Sorry if I confused anybody with my measurements! I honestly just posted what I measured, haha.
could you share your work out routine?
yeah that's true. I just didn't think it would make such a difference. reading the stats here makes me rethink my approach to weight loss.
