A 24-year-old female, who goes by the username fatal_kiss, recently shared her weight loss journey from 130 to 120 pounds with muscle gain for the first time on Reddit. She received 238 upvotes and positive comments for her progress.

Workout Routine

In her post, fatal_kiss shared that she hit the gym 2-3 times a week during the first month and a half, focusing mainly on intense cardio workouts. But this didn't provide much result in body transformation. Afterward, she incorporated weight training using resistance machines only for a few weeks, and then she started to include free weights. She noticed changes in bicep, triceps, and faint outlines of abs after two months of weight-training alongside cardio workouts.

Diet Plan

Fatal_kiss changed her eating habits after the second month of fitness routine. She began tracking her daily calorie intake and macronutrient intake by using apps and a website calculator. She curbed her calorie consumption to get into shape, but she listened to her body and ate more when she felt the need. This helped her maintain healthy metabolism and allowed her to eat wisely.

Fat Loss and Muscle Gain Myth Debunked

One of her Reddit commenters a_shootin_star pointed out that it's not possible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time while losing weight. However, fatal_kiss clarified that she actually slimmed down but gained muscle mass, which was why her weight remained constant.


Fatal_kiss's weight loss journey serves as an inspiration to many who want to transform their bodies and lead a healthier lifestyle. Her progress shows that maintaining a diet plan and exercising with dedication can show results in as little as two months. It is essential to listen to the body and enjoy the process to achieve sustainable goals. Try out her fitness plan for yourself and take the first step towards a fitter version of yourself.
