    i want to gain alot of muscle too, so whilst i want to be a certain size, ill have the weight of the muscle there, when i saw muscle im talking six pack, smallish but not too big muscles in the biceps, and my legs are already mainly muscle due to gym classes and 6 years of dance classes :) so my aim is to be super slim, but muscly at the same time! (possible?) ive got a gym induction today so all the goals will be discussed with them :)

    it seems extreme i know, but its the weight i was at 18, it didnt look too skinny though
    ive seen firsthand what happenes when you go too far with weight loss, my best friend in high school suffered with anorexia, she got that bad that she just looked like a walking skeleton, it was horrible to see her doign that to hersefl, thankfully shes back to health now :)

    Hi and welcome! I too am aiming for a fairly low bmi. Be careful, and be prepared to stop sooner if you have to. Its far more important to be healthy!

    Hi I'm brand new here. Loads of intersting diaries and sources of motivation. Don't be too preoccupied with bmi. If you are doing your work right in the gym, you could actualy stay the same weight and continue to improve the way you look just by trading fat for muscle, which is what happens when you use weights regularly. It's the way you look in the mirror that truly measures the rewards for your effort in the kitchen and the gym. A person with a body fat percentage of 22% will look nowhere near as good as a person of the same bmi who has 17% body fat. Same bmi, different look, different waist size. Love the way you look not what the numbers are telling you.

    Hi, how your body was when you were 18, will be totally different what you are at the age now..what you hope to achieve may not suit when your nearing 30.. im 30 and when i was 18 i was size 8...when i was 22 i was 10, i hope to get back to that size, but as for my body getting back to the shape and the way it was back then will never happen,no matter how much we have to loose...as we age our bodies transform dramatically.

    good luck!! :D

    I'd recommend going to a dietician or a doctor to see what their opinion is on a healthy weight for you. That way you can be assured that you're being healthy and not setting yourself an unachievable goal :)

    You said you're in need of some help. Could you post an example of what you eat on a day? Maybe we can help see if you're going wrong anywhere

    breakfast: bowl of alpen (sugar free one) or if in a rush an alpen light ceral bar and banana

    snacks: alpan light cereal bar

    dinner: chicken sandwhich (the can teen at work usually sells em)

    tea: usually a stir fry or soup

    snack: cereal bar or Weight watchers youghurt

    if i have anythign to drink its either a bottle of tap water or a flavoured water

    theres an 8/9 hour gap between my dinner and tea though as im at the gym straight after work

    ever since i was younger my appetite has always been very little though, it dosent take alot off ood to fill me, i struggle to eat a full meal!

    add the bits of fruit too but only when i have it in the house, it goes very quickly!!

    sorry if my typo is bad, im not a good speller
