6 Pack Abs Weight Loss Update.

by Dave on April 9, 2010

Easter has come and gone and my weight remains at 170lbs ( 77 kilos ) or 12 stone 2lbs, so a little short in terms of reaching the  six pack abs target by Easter Sunday. I think I am still a month or so away from it,  I just have underestimated what I need to lose to get to my target. Even if I had lost another 2lbs to make a 7lb loss, which was my original target, I would still not have made it, I think I will need to be around 166lbs but it is hard to know exactly, so I will just keep going until I can see  my abs properly. I am going in the right direction, and I will get there, but the time frame I set in relation to my current lifestyle  was just was too short.  I can see my abs if I tense up, but that is cheating ! .

My BMI is currently 24.37 , so at the top end of the normal range.

So in the first 3 months of 2010 I have lost another 5lbs of fat , certainly nothing to be upset about, I had set what I thought was a  realistic goal of 7lbs in 12 weeks, and managed 5lbs so I am happy with that. As always this was done  without changing or giving up anything that I eat and drink , but just focusing on consuming  a little less and  trying to keep my calories at my BMR level.  I will look to get the comparison pictures online in the next few days.

Thanks for all the emails with questions about weight loss. I have noticed a couple of common themes running through them, so my next few posts are going to be talking about those, rather than just my own situation. One main theme I want to talk about is our expectations of weight loss, my own belief is we expect too much and then get discouraged when things are slow, but how do you determine what is fast or slow ?  take my current case here, is 5lbs of fat lost over 12 weeks slow or not ?  So more on that subject in the next few posts.

In the meantime as always, if you want to email me you can reach me via retireddieter[at] or just leave a question in the comments.
