The Journey to Weight Loss

The Reddit user with the username BxzNp shares his weight loss journey, which started with a goal of 80kg, but he later revised it to 75kg. He achieved his goal after six months of progress, and he shared his weight loss chart to document the progress he made in achieving his weight loss goal. BxzNp lost the first 10kg in the initial two months, and he revealed that he became slack with progress for the remaining four months. However, he is happy with the results and has now planned to bulk back up.

The Process of Achieving Weight Loss

BxzNp shared some peak statistics for his weight loss journey. His BMI is 21.7, and he lost a total of 44 pounds, which he achieved at a rate of 1.69 pounds per week. He revealed that he hit the gym during the first two months of his weight loss journey, but he lost motivation when he discovered that building mass was hard while cutting. He, however, managed to shed the fat and achieve a leaner build, with clear muscle and bones definition.

The Plan to Bulk Back

BxzNp's goal now is to bulk back up after achieving his weight loss goal. He is in his fifth week of working out and the fourth-week bulking. He revealed some weights he is currently lifting, Squats: 62.5kg 5x5, Bench: 37.5kg 5x5, Row: 42.5kg 5x5, OH Press: 30kg 5x5, and Deadlift: 70kg 5x1, which he plans to add up slowly. He aims to get more lean mass and shed more fat once he achieves this goal.

Muscle Building and Weight Loss

BxzNp revealed that building muscles was hard during cutting, but he believes that muscle building along with weight loss is achievable. His advice is to eat 2.4g of protein per kg of body weight to gain while losing. He also shared that he lost weight from his belly upwards, while the weight of the Reddit user, progresspicsac, is in the opposite direction. Lastly, he advised that getting abs requires building more muscle mass first.
