    Hello everybody.

    Its been a while since ive been losing weight going from 130 kg to 110 right now in this quarantine period.

    Any ways am planning to visit a doctor to tell me my healthiest weight.


    My strategy is based on nutritional diet.

    How to maintain it for the long term ?

    If you've lost 20 kg, you probably already know, but...eat less, workout more.

    posture mate, if your going to lean back and stick your belly out your going to look fat, stand up straight and hold your abs in tension and stick your chest out and, well thats it, train your abs to hold your organs in place instread of spilling over your belt and your shoulders to go back a bit and you will look fine

    have a look on you tube thers lot of good resources for correcting posture.


    you are not particularly over weight, on most of your body, what you have is a distended stomach, that is your organs have dropped as the abs are to weak to hold them in place

    what are the best workouts for this type of issues ? i mean the organs drop.

    I'm guessing it was pics of you that you don't want out there/edited away. If it helps, it shows up as a broken image on his quote on my screen.

    i dont want to appear critical, you've made massive progress and your not in bad shape at all compared with a lot of the folk ive seen walking about with no shirt in the last week and your clearly sensitive about it


    but there plenty of scope for slow but steady improvement if that what you want to do ?

    bad posture is partly muscle weakness and partly habit and you need to consciously correct it until the new you become the habit whilst strengthening your muscles in general rather than focusing on any particular exercise.

    but the hollow body hold works well on pulling your belly in.

    thats a push up position with you tucked up at the waist pulling in and upwards. it puts considerable load on the whale front side of your body including those pesky ab and push you innards back where they should be. but also train your abs to engage whilst your walking around by holding them in mild/ medium tension, that also makes you taller, straightens your back moves your shoulders back and pushes your chest out. then go for a walk, its like doing a plank whilst walking about

    Thats exactly the method i am trying slow but steady.

    I have already tried the fast method in my early 20s and it didnt work

    its depends what you call fast, some determinable progress is required for motivation

    there are a ton of 90 day callisthenics body transformation vids on you tube, whilst you may not be in a position to replicate, its shows whats possible in the short to medium term with application, you can use them for inspiration even if it takes you somewhat longer

    the key to all self improvement is behaviour change, most people can motivate themselves for a month maybe two and they general try far to hard for short term pay off, hurt themselves and give up,making the changes to carry that forward is by far the most difficult part, or lets face it everyone would be walking about looking ike Adonis

    I think also when you have mental problems it becomes harder to keep motivation going.

    i am treating paranoid schizophrenia and a little bit of OCD too . but am fighting through.

    last 5 years werent easy for me.And thats when i gained most of the additional weight.

    i sympathise, but your not alone most people have motivation issues, not just you

    use your ocd, so you cant leave the house with out doing 10 press ups, theres no point having it if you can use it to your advantage

    my brother inlaw has it and he has a very clean house, coz he cant leave with out doing the dishes and dragging a vacuum cleaner round

    Clean up your diet (snack food). Eat your 3 meals per day but divided into 6 meals. Same calories, but, body will utilize food better. Treat food as medicine for the body and nothing past 7pm. Stay hydrated between meals, water is king....123
