Your weight is normal for your height. You may just need to do some more strength training with weights to help tighten up and feel and look better. As you lose weight, your metabolism slows and so will the weight loss. Try changing up your exercises and maybe even try changing some of your meals - try not to eat the same thing if you do.

It's harder to lose weight when you're already pretty thin. I'm 170cm and I had 60kg before and I know I still had a lot of fat. Off course you want to lose it. You should eat 1200 calories per day and only have 1 cheat day a week and that should be no more than 1500 calories. Start exercising 5 or 6 times a week, twice is not enough and include brisk walks 3 or 4 times a week. Right now you are probably only maintaining your weight with your diet and exercise choises like this but with my suggestions you could lose those 2kg in 2 or 3 weeks. Good luck Smile

I would honestly try and avoid cheat days. If you want a piece of candy or chocolate, fit it into your 1200 calories a day. Your body tends to freak out if your calorie intake jumps from one day to the next, causing your body to hold on to more than it should.

Switch up your weight routine. Do less reps with heavier weights. You are so close to where you want to be that the tiniest change may bring you there. You will be sore but it will feel so good Smile

My food advice is to cut any and all highly processed food and eat natural foods. Bump up your protein via chicken and fish and eat fruits and veggies. Simple and very effective. WHen it comes to calories it's quality (protein, good fats vs complex carbs) over mere quantity.

Stay the course, stay on point, stay motivated, dedicated, and you won't be stopped. Discipline. Perseverance. Focus. Dig deep and you will be victorious.

Thanx guys for responding, will definitely use the advise. just another question a few of you said i should eat 1200 calories per day, will this not put me in starvation mode? metabolism will slow down?

With your weight and hight 1200 calories is appropriate. You could eat more and still lose weight fast only if you would train for a marathon for and example. I eat around 850 calories per day and I don't think my metabolism slowed down since I'm losing weight at a nice pace and feel great. If it would slow down anyways there are a lot of different ways to give it a boost.

It's not how much you eat but what you eat
raw food is better then processed food not just for the fiber which goes indeed straight into the toilet but is has the capacity to make you feel full and helps balancing the release of sugar while di ...
