Oh I am right on that boat. I'm also around the same range as you, weight-wise. Online calculators aren't exactly dependable so I wouldn't consider that accurate. However, I heard that many people are not aware of how much % of body fat they have, even those who weigh at 120 lbs could have 25% body fat and less lean muscle yet still appear to look fine at that weight (and lack lean muscle). So don't worry too much, think of lowering that %
. I myself fall in the same range but different sites have been telling me otherwise. What I do is focus on a healthy balanced diet, and reducing my calorie intake about 500 each day from a normal day of eating (of course replaced with healthier food
) and include 30-60 mins cardio, aerobic or weights (calorie-in and calorie-out!). Burn fat, build muscle, it goes both ways...you got to eat to build muscle, and muscle to burn calories.
I myself just started to take a different leap towards loosing and also want to be lean and strong and I know I WANT to do it but fearing if I do something such as burn muscle and gain more fat and thinking I have failed, has put me at pitstops along the way. Sometimes we fear that what we have achieved may disappear again. But really, when you work along the way you will have the motive to strive and keep what you had worked for all along! You CAN and WILL succeed, even if it takes a few cuddley emoticons to take your mind off the opposite
and say: I WILL SUCCEED!!!
Don't ever feel digusted of yourself, you are an achiever and you have that motive to transform your body
