Hi kingkeld, thank you! I've never heard of circle training but if it's similar to crossfit, then I'm sure it's good!

Hi Mauritalorei, thanks for your reply. Hope you can find time to workout soon! As for the picture, I don't know if I can post more than 1 picture on my profile here. But I posted a picture I had on my phone from July this year. I'm leaner now than July, so you can use your imagination Very Happy

Body weight vs body fat %
Hello, I'm new here and wish to become active. Let me share a little about meself.

I was slightly chubby all my life although I have been active/athletic all my life as well. Around September 2012, I got to a point where I felt like I needed to buy new pants because all of them have become tight. I became quite upset about this and decided to do something about it. At that time, I was slightly over 180 lbs with body fat% of 23% -24%. I'm 5'8-9", 30 year-old male.

I joined my local CrossFit school and started with mandatory personal training sessions for a month. I think I did 15 sessions. After that, I was able to attend regular classes. I attended once a week for a couple of months because that's all I could do. For those who know what CrossFit is, I'm sure you will agree with me that it's quite intense. I didn't measure myself or paid any attention to diet. All I was focused on was making CrossFit a routine/habit. I succeeded. I found myself wanting to go more than once a week so when the 3rd month came around, I started attending twice a week. Soon after, I started attending 3 times a week. At that time, I decided to give Paleo diet a try. That's what most CrossFitters do. I followed it strictly for a few weeks and found myself feeling, well, AWESOME. I've never felt that good before. I quickly became stronger and leaner. However, I felt like I hit a plateau... Maybe not... But I wanted to see results faster.

In early August 2013, I decided to give Intermittent Fasting (IF) a try. I followed it strictly until now. I think I've been faster results with IF than with Paleo. I decided to measure myself. After all, it's been a year.

I'm now at 170 lbs, 14.5% body fat. If you see me, you'd think I'm an athlete. If you saw me last year, you'd think I'm average with clothes on and a fat ass with clothes off. I'm very strong for my size and can probably attend CrossFit 4-5 times a week, although I limit myself to 3 -4 times a week.

The point I'm trying to make I guess is that, I think I succeeded for the most part because I was able to make exercise truly a part of my life/routine. It was hard in the beginning but it became easier and easier and fun. I wanted to do more so naturally I needed to eat healthy. Once I did that I noticed BIG changes. Once I saw big changes, I wanted even BIGGER/BETTER changes.

Now I just a few extra pounds on my chest and lower stomach to shed. Once that's complete, I could be on the cover of Men's Health magazine.

But, I only lost 10 pounds since I started to live a healthy lifestyle. That's because I gained weight in muscle and lost the weight from fat. Also, I do not think there will be any yo-yo effect from what I did. I think I have successfully and permanently altered/boosted my metabolism from regular exercise and months of healthy and balanced eating. So unless I drop all exercise and start eating McDs and pizza everyday, I will gain much fat.

So don't worry so much about the weight you gain/loose on your scale. Instead, worry about how much muscle you are gaining, which will also help burn your fat. I'm sure that is what you want.

Thanks for reading!
