I just realized I joined FS almost 4 years ago at almost 240 lbs. I'm down to 160 for the past couple of years. I set a goal of 150 for myself ( I should really be 135-140 for my height and frame ) If you look at my weight history, you will see small ups and downs, which I think we all have. But, I would love to see the last 10 or 15 pounds go before I get too old to care!

Here's the thing : I know if I worked out more it would help, but am I the only one who gets hungrier the more I work out?

People tell me I should be happy I gone from a size 20 to a 10, and I am. But there's still that self imposed goal...

Congrats on your weight loss. It doesn't matter how long it took, you got there and I am sure you can feel the health benefits. I get hungry after working out but I plan my meals and snacks in advance and look forward to eating after a work out. You need to nourish your body to make it stronger and healthier so no guilty feelings here Smile

The last statement is true. The more lean muscle you have the more calories you need to eat every day.

How cool is that. Eat more... gain muscle... and lose fat.

Makes me feel so sorry for people on starvation diets losing lean muscle and slowing their metabolism and starving while they do that.

I have found if I adequately hydrate while I work out, I actually decrease my appetite. It only increases if I fail to do so. That being said, my workouts aren't kill me now extreme. I keep it light and fun. (Primarily belly dancing with some pilates,hooping and yoga mixed in).
