Sup guys, this is my first time posting on the forums and I want to introduce myself while starting a log of my fat loss.

My name is Maxime, Im french Canadian from quebec and im 26. I discovered Good looking loser about 2 weeks ago and while scrolling through the forums I found a post made by Andy and came to look and see what was going on here!
I like how Andy genuinely wants people to give their all and become better versions of themselves and this is why I signed up. I read the whole "Get laid on tinder" guide and im now more determined than ever and ill make sure I stay this way. Btw thanks a million times for this guide, I cant believe something like that is free and it just goes to show how Andy truly cares, again thanks!

(The next paragraph is a little back story of the ups and downs of my fat/muscle gain since college, feel free to skip if you only want to see the fat loss log!)
Lets get started with this fat loss journey shall we!
I have always been short but strong. Currently 5f7 without shoes and 200lbs as of the writing of this. So my weight problems really started when I first stopped training after leaving college and stopping my police officer training. Back then I was around 200lbs, but I was in shape. After stopping everything I quickly hit 220lbs not in shape before meeting my first girlfriend. It was kind of toxic and I was borderline depressed, I lost 30lbs in a matter of a few months, so I was around 190lbs at this time. Some old friends came back into my life and introduced me to powerlifting and it revived the flame in me, I quickly became the strongest I had ever been at around 215lbs around 17% body fat. (My max back then were Bench: 335lbs. Squat: 435lbs. Deadlift: 455lbs.) Here's a photo of me back then:

This is nothing to brag about a lot of people can do those weights, but this prob the biggest achievement of my life up until now at least, so that's why I'm sharing it. It all goes downhill from here. I met my second girlfriend after hitting this point and she was a gamergirl the kind of "8 hours of gaming per day is for noob only" kind of gamergirl. I became very lazy and stopped training, l but never stopped eating like before. At my worst I hit 240lbs in the worst shape I've ever been. That's around 3 years after stopping my training. Here's a photo of me after 3 years:

I was really feeling bad in my own body back then, so I searched online and came across intermittent fasting. I'm someone who always goes all in or nothing, so I started with the 0MAD diet (one meal a day) and I lost 50 pounds in matter of 5-6months. Heres a photo of me after 5-6months:
Note: I was 190lbs on that photo but I did not take care of myself or watch what I was eating, so I was feeling weak as hell and the 50poounds I lost was not from fat alone, I prob lost a ton of muscle too. Do not do 0MAD unless you know what to do plz.

I hit the 190lbs mark around 7months ago and since then, I let loose a little and started eating before going to bed and not caring still about what im eating, so I went back to 210lbs not really in shape. and this is the photo You can see to the left, this is my profile picture and I will keep it there, this is where I started this journey, 2 weeks ago. I have a habit of letting go after awhile and I want to kill this bad habit and I will do everything in my power to change myself.

The first week was very rough, coming back to training/running, so my weight didn't change that much and I was sore every single day, but I kept going and kept pushing and by the start of the second week my soreness is almost non existent. I also started to look a lot more at what I'm eating, I'm now taking multivitamin and omega 3 after each meal (still on 0mad, I'm at 1year and 1 month at this point) and go to the gym every day to run 5km on a treadmill.
Week 1 doesn't really count for me, it was really light weight and just coming back slowly but surely, so ill start the log at week 2.

WEEK 2
08-03-21

I will detail everything I did during the whole week exercise wise. I always weight myself once per week, Friday morning.
Starting Weight: 204.8lbs
Ending Weight: 199.6
5km = 3.11 mile
Ran a total of: 26km/16.15miles
Best time: 34:32

Monday: Went to a gym a bit far from where I live, all the gyms just re-opened so I wanted to try a few.
- Ran for 1km (0.6miles) as warm-up.
- Did bench + Pull-ups with green band assist.
- Wanted to to do some squats but some motherfucker took my spot while I went to the bathroom.
- Did some back pull and wanted to do a lot more before someone that works there comes and tell me they are closing. Its 8:45PM and the curfew (Yes there's a fucking curfew in Quebec) is 9:30.
- Came back to my apartment and stretched a little.

Tuesday: Went to a different gym closer to my house that just opened for non-members and see what's going on
- Went on my 1h dinner pause (I work from home) and really liked the place, its a garage gym I can show some photo if yall would like.
- So I ran my first 5km, took 2 pause during the run and finished 39:45 (yikes I know, but it will get much better!)
- Came back at around 8:05PM and the gym was closed to non-members and since I was on trial I didn't have the pass so I couldn't enter :(

Wednesday Went to the same gym as the previous day and became member and subscribe for 4months since I have to move early July
- Ran another 5km on my 1h dinner pause, took 2 pauses and finished in 37:38 (getting better)
- Came back at around 7:30 and did some weight lifting (I don't have a program yet, the strength coach there will make one really soon as part of the membership)
- Did bench + pull-up + Deadlift + Press + Biceps curl + Triceps extension
- Overall very good day

Thursday Woke up kind of tired and a bit sore, didn't sleep very well.
- Ran 5km on noon and took 2 pauses. I finished in 37:20
- This run was by far the hardest, I almost collapsed at the end, I gave everything I could just to beat yesterday. I don't know if its because I did Deadlift the night prior, ill have to see in future weeks if this really affects my runs.
- Was drained as hell took the rest of the day off

Friday Added some photos after weighting this morning
- Weighted myself at 199.6lbs ( What the actual fuck... 5lbs in less than a week????) I ate plenty and did weight lifting... I dont understand to be honest, im happy but is it normal?
- Ran 5km and took 1 pause. Finished in 34:41 (wow!)
- This run was smooth I felt good, prob from taking the prior day off (except for the run)
- I can already see my body morphing, like you can see in the photo. Compare it to my profile pic!
- Came back to the gym at around 7pm and had a meeting with a strength coach, explained all my objectives to him and he will come back to me with a personal plan in about a week.
- The strength coach also said to moderate my trainings, that I should do only 3 runs and 3 trainings per week and 1 full rest say so that I stay motivated.
- After the meeting I trained for 2h, I did Bench + Pull up green band assist + Deadlift + Back pull + Biceps curl + Triceps extension + Forearm extension

Saturday
- Full rest day
- I feel quite a lot of pain in the right shoulder area when lifting my arm, gonna stretch intensely today and roll on a rubber ball, hope it helps.
- Roll the rubber ball in my shoulder blades area for approx 1h today (2x30min) and its now feeling a lot better. Im feeling like its sore as hell instead of hurting really bad like this morning, hopefully I can lift tomorow!

Sunday
- Went around noon, did my 5km run in 34:32, stopped once at 4km ish.
- Maybe not tomorow but on Tuesday I want to be able to tun at 9km/h and do a full run without stopping
- Still felt pain in my right shoulder in the connexion between the shoulder and biceps so I went easy on the weights.
- Did Bench + Pull up band assist + biceps curls + Triceps extension.
- Should receive my training program sometime this next week.

Good shit

Weight fluctuates a lot man. Id advise you take more weights and get comfortable with stepping on the scales

When I was most serious i weighed 2x a day - morning and evening.

I then put all the week's numbers in a median calculator and used that figure as my official weight

Thanks for the advice radical, I weight myself only once per week to see the big difference at the end, but doing it more often could help me understand how it fluctuates.

Since I only eat once, I could weight myself not super long after my meal and right after my run around noon. Since by that time I've fasted for a long time and prob lost ton of water from running. Ill do that starting next week! 🙂

WEEK 3
15-03-21

I will detail everything I did during the whole week exercise wise. As of this week and as recommended by Radical, I will weight myself twice per day, once around noon after my run and once after my meal around 6PM EST.
Starting Weight: 199.6lbs
Ending Weight: 199.5lbs
Average of the week: 202.9lbs
(5km = 3.11 mile)
# of km ran this week: 20km/12.4miles
Best time: 32:45

Monday:
Weight noon: 199.6lbs
Weight evening: 204.6lbs
- Ran 5km in 34:06

Tuesday:
Weight noon: 201.8lbs
Weight evening: 205.0lbs
- Went to the gym, and I felt really fucking good. I've started taking prot and creatine last Friday and boy does it make the world of difference.
- I'm only at my 4th gym session since coming back and I'm already pushing 245lbs for 3 reps, god bless creatine and muscle memory. :D
- I did Bench + Pull up band assist (I went with the purple band instead of the green one and it felt great!) + Row Pull + Biceps curl + Triceps extension.
- I should receive my training focused on weight lost from my strength coach sometime this week.


Wednesday
Weight noon: 200.0lbs
Weight evening: Forgot to weight in
- Ran 5km in 33:23! (NO PAUSES!!!)
- Not only did I beat my previous time by 43secs, but I was able to do it in one shot instead of taking a break at 3/4 of the run, Really proud of myself!

Thursday
Weight noon: 201.4
Weight evening: 206.8
- Went to the gym, Still waiting on that training program from my strength coach.
- Did Bench + Pull ups + Row + Biceps/Triceps in superset.

Friday
Weight noon: 201.8
Weight evening: 205.6
- Ran 5km in 33:05!

Saturday
Weight noon: 200.2
Weight evening:
- Ran 5km in 32:45

Sunday
Weight noon: 199.5
Weight evening: 205.2
- Added some photos!
- Did Bench + Pull ups + Row + Biceps/Triceps in superset.

TAKEWAYS from this week:
- My weight did not change this week probably due to the fact that I started creatine late last week, so my body is doing more and more water retention, also im getting visibly bigger each week, so my weight will prob not move too much in the next weeks, but im confident my %fat will.

WEEK 4
22-03-21

I will detail everything I did during the whole week exercise wise.
Starting Weight: 200.1lbs
Ending Weight: 204.0lbs
Average of the week: 204.1lbs
(5km = 3.11 mile)
# of km ran this week: 10km/ 6.2miles
Best time for 5km run: 32:27

Monday:
Weight noon: 200.1lbs
Weight evening: 207.0lbs
- Full day of rest
- Received my new training gonna list what I do in the thorough this week!

Tuesday:
Weight noon: 200.8lbs
Weight evening: 206.0lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 32:40
- Today was the first day of my new Training focused on losing weight, so I will list everything that I did.
- My training is called Power cutting and the first day is "Power Cutting 1 Deadlift".

[*] Barbell Deadlift (12x6x6x6x4x4x3)
135x12 - 225x6 - 225x6 - 225x6 - 255x4 - 255x4 - 315x3
- Yes my weights are all over the place, because its been a long as time since I did a proper deadlift training and I didnt rly know what I could realistically lift. My x3 rep with 315 was hard as hell but I managed.

[*] Low Row (15x15x15x15)
135x15 - 150x15 - 165x15 - 180x15
- Again, didnt know what I could do my low rows at for 15 rep, next time ill start a 180.

Circuit
[*] GIANT SET - Pull up with green band assist (10rep) + Turkish Get Up (2 each side) + Plank (30s) + Kettlebell Swings (12rep)
- I do the circuit 4 times
- Turkish Get Up is with a 15lbs dumbell in hands
- The Kettlebell is 35lbs

Wednesday
Weight noon: 200.8lbs
Weight evening: 206.2lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 32:27

Thursday
Weight noon: 200.2lbs
Weight evening: 205.4lbs
- Todays training is called "Power Cutting 1 Squat".

[*] Barbell Bench (8x6x6x6x4)
185x12 - 225x6 - 225x6 - 225x6 - 245x4
- Doing bench was not in my training but I will become depress if I only do bench once a week, so I will prob add a small bench training before the squat and deadlift training!

[*] Barbell squat (12x6x6x5x4x4x3)
135x12 - 185x6 - 225x6 - 245x5 - 245x4 - 245x4 - 255x3
- Yes my weights are kind of low and all over the place, this was my first leg training in like 3-4 years so I knew it would be rough and god damn it was rough, but everything will fall in place in the next few weeks

[*] Leg press (15x15x15x15)
225x15 - 315x15 - 315x15 - 315x15

Circuit
[*] GIANT SET - Alternate Jumping Lunges (12rep) + Single Kettlebell Deadlifts (11rep) + Swiss Ball Crunches (12rep) + Wall Ball (11ep)
- I do the circuit 4 times
- The Kettlebell is 35lbs
- The ball is 15lbs

Friday
Weight noon: 203.4lbs
Weight evening: 207.8lbs
- I will take my full day of rest today, I'm completely fucked, I haven't done legs in a loooooong ass time and I would even be able to run properly. The day after my legs day will probably become the day I always take my full rest day to let my legs time to rest more.

Saturday
Weight noon: 205.0lbs
Weight evening: 208.0lbs
- Ever since my leg workout, I've been weighting a lot more on the scale, I was wondering if it was related to how sore I am and yeah in fact, its due to DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) it's microscopic tears happening in the muscle and this cause fluid retention and inflammation. Let me tell you Jesus Christ I haven't been this sore since my first big leg workout in college. I would weigh around 200 at noon, but right now I'm at 205, crazy.
[*] Barbell Bench (12x6x6x5x4x4x5)
135x12 - 225x6 - 225x6 - 235x5 - 245x4 - 245x4 - 235x5

[*] Dumbbell bench press (15x15x15x15)
50x15 - 50x15 - 50x15 - 45x15

Circuit
[*] GIANT SET - Push-ups (12rep) + Clean & Press Med Ball (11rep) + Crunches (12rep) + Burpees (12ep)
- I do the circuit 4 times
- The ball is 15lbs


Sunday
Weight noon: 204.0lbs
Weight evening: 205.8lbs
- I'm still completely fucked from my leg workout from Thursday, I still cant even walk properly. It's a bit less painful than yesterday or the day before but I still cant bent my knees without feeling excruciating pain, This is officially the worst its ever been. Normally the pain would really start to fade after the second day but I'm in the third day and its still rly bad so it might take a whole week to go back to normal....wtf
- I'm gonna go to the gym and try to jog, but I wont be running my 5km in 32min today I don't think so :^)
- Added some progress photos!

TAKEWAYS from this week:
- Still a long way to go, but my strength is also coming back slowly but surely. As stated before I would really like to go for 185lbs as lean as possible and see from there if I need to lose more maybe go down to 175lbs, but I doubt I could realistically go lower than that while staying decently big.
- This week I learned about DOMS which can really increase numbers on the scale without you weighting more. I don't really care about the numbers on the scale as long as my strength goes up and my body is still changing which it still is.

- I'm still super fucking sore from the leg workout I did last Thursday, I have never seen sore for this long in my entire life and its not my first "first leg day in a really long time" but I might have went a little too far, anyway I had not run since last Wednesday so I had to do something, I ran at my usual pace and it was hard as hell, until like 3,5km then I took a break and finished. Ill prob start the week with the bench training if tomorrow is not better cuz I don't want to do Deadlift with my legs this sore.

Tuesday:
Weight noon: 202.4lbs

[*] Went to the park and did 4 sets of chin ups with the purple band assist. (12-10-8(hold last rep)-7(hold last rep))
[*] I did continued the push up training I started before going to the gym. It's called the One hundred push up training and I did Week 4 day 3 (29x33x29x29x40) with 2 min pauses between each set.
- This was my first run outside since like junior high school, I've always ran on a treadmill, since you can adjust your speed better and all I preferred that. But now my city is in lockdown so ill start running outside.

Weight noon: 200.2lbs

[*] Ran 5km in 30:37
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 5 day 1 (36x40x30x24x40) with 1 min pauses between each set.

[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 5 day 1 (36x40x30x24x40) with 1 min pauses between each set.
- Failed at 29 push ups of the last set

TAKEWAYS from this week:
- I was able to fit in 1 last bench workout in the gym before the motherfucking government put us back in lockdown, so I will have to use my imagination a lot more for the weeks to come... And I was starting to see some serious gains.. fuck these fucking retards seriously.
- It will definitely hinders my muscle gain, so I will concentrate on weight loss. I will try to do at least 1 30min/5km run every day from now on and do pull-ups at the parks and push ups/core exercises at home at least 3 times a week.
- I look so much better than 1 month ago its insane (as you can see from this week photos compared to the beginning), I'm very motivated still and it only convince me to keep going and go even harder.

[*] Ran 5km in 29:22
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 5 day 3 (20x20x24x24x20x20x22x50) with 45sec pauses between each set.
- I failed at 35 push ups of the last set, so tomorrow its day 3 again.
[*] Did leg raises with leg straight on the way down, but slightly bent on the way up (3x30rep)
- I got it, so starting Saturday, it's full leg raises!
[*] Did the plank 4x70sec

Friday
Weight noon: 200.0lbs
Weight evening: 204.8lbs
[*] Went to the park and did pull-ups (10x8x7(hold last rep)x6(hold last rep))
- Today was supposed to be a full rest day but I didn't have time to go to the park yesterday because of a financial zoom call, so I did it today.

Saturday
Weight noon: 198.8lbs
Weight evening: 203.2lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 28:29
- Huuuuuuuuuge PR after taking only 1 day of rest, the run felt good and I had a good pace.
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 5 day 3 (20x20x24x24x20x20x22x50) with 45sec pauses between each set.
- I got it so Monday it will be week6 day1!
[*] Did full leg raises (3x25rep)
- Got it so Monday will be 5 more.
[*] Did the plank 4x75sec

Sunday
Weight noon: 199.2lbs
Weight evening: 203.4lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 28:47
- This run sucked big time, I had heavy wind blowing in my face for half the run, it def slowed me down but it's fine I managed to beat my time from Thursday by 40sec even that handicap!

TAKEWAYS from this week:
- Managed to complete week5 day3 of the 100 push up training, so only one week to go and I should be able to do 100 consecutive push ups!
- I took Friday off from all training because I don't want to drain myself to much and I agreed with a friend of mine to take Friday's and Sunday's off. I will still run on Sundays, but ill take those days to rest.
- After resting Friday, I completely destroyed my 5km PR by finishing it in 28:29, almost a whole a minute ahead of what my previous PR was. Resting is important.

Weight evening: 203.8lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 28:55

[*] Went to the park and did chin-ups body weight (13x10x8(hold last rep)x8(hold last rep))

[*] Went to the park and did chin-ups body weight (14x10x10(hold last rep)x8(hold last rep))
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 6 day 1 (45x55x35x30x55) with 60sec pauses between each set.

Sunday
Weight noon: 196.4lbs
Weight evening: 200.1lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 27:36

[*] Did full leg raises (3x45rep)
- Got all 3 sets, so starting Tuesday it will be (3x50)
[*] Did the plank 4x90sec
- This is still super fucking hard and I compensate too much on my shoulders instad of abs, gonna have to stay at 90 sec and work on using the right muscles.

TAKEWAYS from this week:
- Got to week 6 day 3 of the 100 push up training by the very last day. I will probably attempt the 100 push up test sometimes next week!
- Broke my 5km PR twice this week with the best time being 27:36 on the very last day of the week!
- I'm now able to do 15 chin-up when I wasn't able to do 5 rep 7 weeks ago.
- Started feeling the fat in my love handles and overall around the waist a lot softer than before. not sure if going to get loose skin, I hope not D:

Weight evening: 201.8lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 27:20
- New PR! It was cold and raining outside and the run felt really good even if I had pretty heavy wind in my face for the second half of the run. It was pretty much my first time running under rain and the air was a lot easier to breath and the heat didn't drain my energy! Running under rain is great!
[*] Went to the park and did chin-ups body weight (15x12x9(hold last rep)x8(hold last rep))
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 6 day 3 (26x26x33x33x26x26x22x22x60) with 45sec pauses between each set.

Wednesday
Weight noon: 197.0lbs
Weight evening: 203.6lbs
- Today was my birthday so I treated myself, ordered a big meal on Uber Eat, probably why the scale went up so much haha
[*] Ran 5km in 27:55
[*] Went to the park and did chin-ups body weight (13x12x11(hold last rep)x10(hold last rep))
- It was snowing outside (first time in like 1 month lol) so the bars were very slippery, I didn't hustle as much as I could have because of that.
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 6 day 1 (45x55x35x30x55) with 45sec pauses between each set.
- Failed at push up 37 of the last 55.
- My rest day is supposed to be Friday, so I did week 6 day 1 but with 45 sec pause instead of 60. I will do the same tomorrow and take Friday and Saturday to rest because attempting the 100 consecutive push ups on Sunday.
[*] Did full leg raises (3x50rep)
- Focusing on doing the leg raise as straight as possible.
[*] Did the plank 4x95sec

Thursday
Weight noon: 197.8lbs
Weight evening: 201.4lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 28:40
- Woke up and felt like shit, headache/nausea, maybe because my yesterdays meal was the first pretty bad meal in a long time (it was my birthday so I treated myself) Anyhow I did my run anyway and now I feel much better. I also had pretty heavy wind in my face for the second half of the run.
- It's funny, what I would consider a shitty ass run right now is a PR 2 weeks ago.
[*] Went to the park and did chin-ups body weight (15x13x11(hold last rep)x10(hold last rep))
[*] Did the one hundred push up test week 6 day 1 (45x55x35x30x55) with 45sec pauses between each set.
- Failed at push up 48 of the last 55.
- My rest day is supposed to be Friday, so I did week 6 day 1 but with 45 sec pause instead of 60. I will take Friday and Saturday to rest because I'm attempting the 100 consecutive push ups on Sunday.
[*] Did full leg raises (3x50rep)
- Focusing on doing the leg raise as straight as possible.
[*] Did the plank 4x100sec with 2 min rest between each set

Friday
Weight noon: 198.2lbs
Weight evening: 201.6lbs
[*] Full rest day today!

Saturday
Weight noon: 195.6lbs
Weight evening: 201.6lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 27:40
- It's weird I had a pretty good run, but during the run I felt like I was not going at a good pace and I felt like shit, but I'm happy with the result nonetheless
[*] Today is training rest day since I do the 100 consecutive push up tomorrow

Sunday
Weight noon: 195.0lbs
Weight evening: 200.4lbs
[*] Ran 5km in 27:25
[*] Did the 100 consecutive push up test and got up to 104! Really proud of myself but this isn't over!

TAKEWAYS from this week:
- Managed to break my 5km PR yet again with a time of 27:20, but this week was rough on the performance side, multiple run went really bad and after my birthday meal on Wednesday I felt like shit pretty much the rest of the week, still did all my trainings and runs but compared to last week, I did not have a lot of progression. There's going to be some like those, but it's not a reason to let down! Keep working!
- Sunday was my attempt at 100 consecutive push ups and I got it! I went up to 104 and I'm really proud of myself! This was also my first time filming myself doing push ups and I saw that my form pretty much sucks a lot, so I'm going to restart at week5 day1 and work on my form from there. In my head this is not a real 100 consecutive push up until I'm 100% satisfied with the results and I won't be if I don't have proper form for all 100 of em.
- Got down to 195lbs on Sunday and almost down to 194! Pretty good week weight wise!
