    I dunno, i browse through quite a few "estimate my bf" threads and they always seem a lot higher than what I would have guessed.

    By the way, is the male transformation in the OP your brother's?!
    Ah fair enough-no it's not, my brother came second in the summer transformation. The guy in the OP came first

    Have you tried the insanity workout? I have a colleague who had a similar physique to you - after the insanity workout he's lost a load of weight. Fair play for posting up and wanting to improve..!

    So I have until the 8th to post? Might give it a whirl..!

    I'm doing it, I'm going to enter. I argued and argued with myself whether I needed to create a new username and membership....but nahhhh. I feel the girls side need more entries anyway

    Aims
    To lose fat, especially round the thighs and buttocks area.
    Try to get below 70kg...long term aim
    Generally tone up (eurgh, I do hate that word).But I reckon I need to

    How?
    I've been going to the gym for around 2 months now. Although it all went wrong once the Christmas holidays started. Of course. More cardio, and more concentrating on back thigh area.
    I'm also going to eat more healthily. Always ate pretty well, but definitely cutting down on the biscuits and treats. More vegetarian dishes, more fish, and more healthy snacks.

    Weight/Measurements
    Weight: 77kg
    Hips: 42
    Thigh: 48
    Waist: 33
    BMI: 26

    Nope. Thanks, my balls felt bigger instantly the moment I pressed submit reply. As for how I feel about the actual contest itself, this smiley here is suitable

    Why not

    Time to finally change myself and enter this!
    I am new to this whole bodybuilding/fitness world so i have a lot to learn and look foward to it. I have decided to join after being worried and lacking in confidence to participate in previous transformations contests. The reason i am doing this is because after months of depression since ive graduated in july, i have been going on a downward spiral to the point of avoiding looking at my body in the mirror and seeing how disgusting it is. BUT IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE!

    My current stats:
    Age: 21
    Height: 5ft 11in
    Weight: 74kg (11.3 stones ish)
    BMI: 22.7
    BMR:1840

    The change i want is to become more athletic and muscular and be able to look in the mirror confidently and see a noticable change from what i am now.

    How will i do this? Reading the stickies and comments of various posters, everyone seemed to reccomend "bodybuilding.com". and on there i have found this program:

    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/stev...e-trainer.html

    I have asked someone about this and the feedback was that it covers the core minimum requirements and is good for a newbie. So i have been told to try this out and see how i adapt and what i like/dislike.

    My pictures show that i am a 'skinny-fat' so i would ideally like to buld up and become muscular and not look like a kid with a skeleton stick frame.
    Based on the program these are the calories that i need to reach:
    Calories Needed: 2850
    Protein:285 grams per day
    Carbohydrates:285 grams per day
    Fats: 63 grams per day

    Since i am new to this i may be following the wrong stats to reach so i would appreciate any feedback/input.

    After reading around and looking at stickies and threads my following diet will consist of:

    Carbohydrates:
    -Brown Rice
    -Vegetables
    -Fruits
    -Oats
    -Whole Grain Breads
    -Whole Grain Pittas
    -Sweet Potatoes
    -Berries


    Proteins:
    -Eggs
    -Chicken
    -Milk
    -Cottage Cheese

    Fats:
    -Olive Oil
    -Almonds
    -Walnuts

    I am currently struggling on making a meal plan, but with further reading im sure i will develop something manageable.

    p.s. due to the lack of quality of the pictures i have included quite a lot, to compensate.

    I was debating over whether to enter this but I decided I need a goal for my cousins wedding in July and I want to look fabulous beforehand .


    Aims
    • To run 5 miles at least 2 times a week (and measure progress using run keeper).
    • To get developed calves again (barely any running has lost any definition)
    • To get back down to 9.5 stone - it has been a while. /Alternatively just look trimmer..
    • Get muscle and upper body strength - flabby arms grr!
    • To drink more water and less other drinks.
    • Better posture too - hopefully that'll come with exercise.

    How?

    • Make a timetable for exercise.
    • Going back to the gym ( 2 times a week - I went twice in December )
    • Exercise bike 2 times a week (at least 10 miles each time
    • Drinking more green tea
    • Getting my five a day
    • Avoiding crisps and fizzy drinks.

    Why?
    If I am honest then it isn't so much the weight that is bothering me but rather the sluggishness/ laziness so I want to recapture the energy and endorphin.


    Weight/Measurements
    Height: 5ft 8
    CW: 66kg
    GW1: 60kg
    (going to do measuring tomorrow)

    OK. Main aim to become more muscular and increase strength whilst not being too big for my main sport, running. My mass should increase during this if I put on muscle because I'm not very strong currently.

    Vital Stats
    Height: 188cm
    Mass: 69.8 kg
    BMI: 19.75
    Body Fat: 14%

    Measuring body fat looks quite imprecise, I'm going to guess it could be up to about 3% either way.

    Never done this before.

    Been debating whether to enter this for the past few days but have decided that I need the kick up the butt.

    I potentially have high blood pressure and so despite being a healthy BMI the main aim will be to become healthier overall and to have a normal blood pressure the next time it is measured (25th feb).
    Also aim to be building strength to help me progress with aerial (ropes, silks, trapeze)

    Before stats:
    weight: 65kg
    height: 168cm

    pull ups: 1

    Hello All, I am new to this website although my boyfriend has been on it for a while :-) I recently lost a fair bit of weight in the summer leading up to being a bridesmaid at my friend's wedding but since then have relaxed and awful lot! I am looking to mainly tone up and get more active, I really enjoy general fitness although I do not have a set plan I will be attending more classes at my friend's gym (she gets free vouchers sometimes :-) ), and running more, cycling more, swimming more.... Stats: Height: 5ft 3ins Weight: 59kg
