I have lost a total of 70lbs and am down to a 16% body fat. My goal is 8-10%. I have learned the scale does not really tell you the information you need to know. I have really gotten into fitness over the last year and have met some great people with plenty of advise to give. One gal is 40 years old and has six kids and in a week she will be doing a physique competition. She went from being a "cardio bunny" to a weight trainer, gained 25lbs and went down in body fat.
Most fitness people have a saying, "abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym". Basically if it can't go bad on the shelf within a week it is bad for you and not considered "clean eating". I have gone down in body fat percentage lately while upping my calorie intake by almost 500 per day.
If anybody wants any help or motivation let me know. I would be happy to share what I have learned.
