  1. esqinchi - Wow, thanks for that reply! Sorry it took so long to respond. I somehow missed the notification in my email. I would like to get to lose 30-35 lbs. I have just started another workout routine... 4 different supersets, 2 exercises and 3 sets, heavy weights but it covers the whole body 3x a week. Maybe I should add in a cardio day??? I have a hard time with being patient. I need to work on that I'll start keeping a journal again. I used to do Weight Watchers and it was going great... but I don't know what happened. Thanks for your advice and taking the time to reply!
  2. muchidna, I would consider myself overweight. I have a very slow metabolism from all the yoyo dieting I was doing before deciding that weightlifting and muscle was best. Within the last few months, I lost about 20lbs, but then life happened... gained 5+ and haven't been able to get back on track. I'm trying hard to get myself psyched. Before the life events, I was doing a program called ChaLean Extreme. I saw myself getting stronger and gaining muscle, but haven't notice much in the weight aspect (I tried very hard not to look at the scale). As I added more weight, I noticed more low back pain so I would have to rest for longer periods to recoup. I'm the type of person that needs to see changes to stay motivated. That's why I asked for a faster method. I think my problem is mostly on the nutrition side. I have a hard time staying on a strict diet. I try to be "healthy" but bread and rice taste so good! Thanks again for your input!
  3. Mellon, thank you for your help! I will be changing my diet soon and try to incorporate as much of your advice as I can. Thanks again.
  4. Thank you muchidna for replying! So my tdee is between 2100-2300 calories working out 3-5x a week and 1800 cal for maintenance doing nothing. How low should I go for faster fat loss?
  5. Hi! Is there a weight lifting program I can do 3-4x a week for fat loss? Is that even possible? I would like to lose the fat while keeping the muscle. I'm at a total loss as to what I should do regarding lifting and nutrition. Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!
