F/23/4’11” [111 Ibs < 115 Ibs = 5Ibs] I gained five pounds while weight lifting, but I think I also gained unwanted fat on my abdomen. Any advice on reducing this fat? Left is before, right is after.

One Reddit user recently shared their weight loss journey through a series of posts. Although they have since deleted their account, their story can still serve as inspiration for those on their own journey to a healthier lifestyle.

The Starting Point

The user began their journey weighing 320 pounds, with a BMI of 43.5. They shared that they had struggled with their weight for years and had tried various diets and exercise routines with minimal success.

The Plan

After doing some research, the user decided to focus on creating a caloric deficit through a combination of diet and exercise. They aimed to consume around 1500-1700 calories per day, while also incorporating strength training and cardio into their routine.

The Progress

Over the course of several months, the user documented their progress on Reddit. They shared updates on their weight (which steadily decreased) and their workouts (which became more challenging as their strength increased). They also shared their struggles and setbacks, such as times when they fell off track with their diet or missed a workout.

The Results

By the end of their documented journey, the user had lost over 100 pounds and had lowered their BMI to a healthier range. They credited their success to their commitment to their plan, as well as the support they received from the Reddit community. They also emphasized the importance of not giving up after a setback, but instead getting back on track as soon as possible.
