    Nothing is wrong with a good Pancake, in fact a good pancake is perhaps one of the greatest foods to eat. So I say go ahead and those pancakes just avoid syrup, powder sugar, butter and all that other crap people like to put on it. And if you do put fruit on it make sure it's fresh fruit not the ones that come covered in the syrup.

    The last 10 pounds is the hardest to lose simply because the closer you are to your idea body weight there is less weight to lose from. It could also be because if you were doing the same exercises over and over your body will actually adapt and get used to it and that will slow down progress. Simple way to fix that is every couple months change up your exercises to shock your body.

    Congrats losing that 50 pounds last year, that is essentially losing a 5 year old.

    Ally that last 10lbs could take up to 2 yrs of dedication honestly

    Human genetics will hold on to that naturally

    I've been having eggs for breakfast. I am not a breakfast person, but I know it helps to have it. Sadly, I am not usually hungry the rest of the day (I only have 2-3 eggs and it fills me for the day). I need to start making smoothies I think for the rest of the day...

    It was easier for me to think of it as a life change than a diet. I did the paleo diet for a year and exercised a minimum of 3 times a week. Alcohol is definitely what made me gain some weight back. When I added that back into my diet it was no bueno. Not only the calories from alcohol but that drunken 3am burrito that I don't even remember eating. I also didn't get mad at myself if I wanted to go out to dinner once in awhile (Burma Superstar om nom nom). Don't dwell on it. Just start new the next day.

    I can't eat a pancake without a good cup of syrup. Love that stuff. I'm like Buddy the elf. And ya considering 50 pounds was 1/4 of my starting body weight. I'm the smallest I've ever been.

    I'm still a healthy body weight for my height (5'10'' and 158.5) but I would just prefer getting back to where I was in January!

    I definitely consider it a life style change, not a diet, diets end.. keeping up a life style can not end, or you go back to start. Smaller healthy portions of healthy foods while still monitoring calories. I've lost this 60lbs about 4 years ago before I was with my boyfriend (not blaming him at all) but over the 4 years I learned if you don't keep it up, it will CREEP up. OH boy, did it creep up. Starting all over was a shitty feeling, but knowing I did it once and it can be done again was good, I guess.

    LOL so true! I know I have tried hard to change my lifestyle, but i have ZERO support from the...well the man I am married to. I will keep the expletives out of that lol. I could stand to lose the 180lb weight that he is lol.

    ANYWAY...I have been walking and tomorrow I start my Shred DVD (Didn't have time to start it today ) I need to get on Facebook and see if my local garage sale sites have weights for sale.

    Just don't want you to get all hot headed. Being friendly doesnt always mean a girl wants your cock.

    Yeah, well I didn't think that I the first place anyway.


    Going to the gym now. Baking some chicken and steaming some asparagus for dinner. Might have a few glasses of wine. What is everyone else doing to get fit for Chella?

    Just finished my first Tabata session. I'm dripping and high as fuck on endorphins! That was so intense, but awesome. Adding Tabata to my schedule, at least twice a week!

    Edit: Btw, anyone have any suggestions on some great work out music? Always looking for new stuff to sweat to.

    There's a lot more broscience in this thread than I'm used to, but it's fun to keep up with other Fitchellers.

    I've put on a noticeable amount of lean mass with not much fat gain since my Weekend 1+2 bender. The scale's pretty much useless for me to monitor progress at this point though since I just started taking creatine again and I know I'm holding onto a lot more water. I'm really pumped to see my lifts going up again and hitting PRs after stalling out during my Coachella cut. I don't know how many of you guys do any kinds of cleans, but hang cleans have always been my shittiest lift and I'm finally coming close to hitting two plates.
