    Im trying to loose some weight that I gained while using a test booster but Im having a hard time trying to get it to come off. Ive always had low self esteem about my body It all started when I was 15 and I weighed 180lbs and from 180 to 140 in three months from last week of May till the last week of August. My eating has been off ever since then I diet for a good amount of time and then binge eat and gain the weight back again. I work out 5 days a week doing weights and cardio but back in April of this year was when I wanted to gain muscle faster and I tried a test booster. I did gain weight and muslce but also ended up gaining fat and ever since I lost all the weight I havent been able to get a tight abdomen. Where should I start.

    Type "cutting up" "ripped diet" "lean out" into your favorite search engine.

    Interesting post.
    Having checked your profile, I must say that your physique looks good. And boxing too, along with the training and gym workouts that goes with it, calories get burnt. And that is what weight gain is about - calorie build up.
    But reading your OP, you say that your self esteem is low, and then you start binge eating (I call it comfort eating) - unfortunately the worst course of action you can take.
    I have been on a weight loss program for the last 18 months, and I have transformed from someone obese to how I look today, after the loss of five stone. If you scroll down the Losing Weight column of threads and come to my own topic, Weight Loss result in Pictures you will see the before/after sequence of pics.
    This was achieved by the following:
    1. Watch what you eat. Avoid binge eating, keep your meals average, and snack during the day. Fresh fruit is good. Try to avoid high calorie desserts such as apple pie and custard. Finishing your meal with an apple or orange, or whatever fresh fruit you fancy would be a wise move. Also avoid excess cake, candy, chocolate, ice-cream and anything else that would pile up the pounds. Late night snacking can also be hazardous, as the ensuing night does not allow much calorie burning. If you feel peckish late at night, go for a fruit or fat-free yogurt.
    2. I have built up a cardio/fatburn workout on the elliptical in the gym. Starting relatively easy, I gradually built up resistance and duration until at present I can burn up to 1,080 calories in one 50-minute session.
    Accompanying this, my running partner and I go out for a run once or twice a week, which I find much more exhilerating than a treadmill. In the summer we run through the woods, in winter, it's through the streets.
    This is a long post. I hope my effort in posting will be helpful to you.
    Good luck.

    I think you should start by dealing with self-esteem and disordered eating. A strict diet may just make things worse. You first need to be confident in yourself. You also need to examine what causes you to overeat and understand how to reduce the need to do that. Once you stabilize that you can move on to other things. Feeling confident in yourself and knowing yourself will go a long way.

    I think that diet is not only the option to lose your weight. Generic Xenical is the best medicine to lose your weight effectively and at very fast rate without any side effect.

    Personally I would stay away from pills. Stick to things that you can sustain for life. I have a very similar problem but my regained weight was brought on by stress and anxiety more or less. It's been something I've struggled with for the last two years.

    I would suggest you start tracking what you're eating when you're not bingeing. Make sure that you're eating roughly enough calories for your age/weight. Then it's kind of one day at a time. I weigh myself every morning (a little OCD) and look for an overall downward trend (my scale has BF % as well which is more important to me). This time around I'm hoping to get caught up in the momentum and just keep going.

    Are there certain foods that you binge on? I know for me that I can't have cookies or all of the ingredients to make them, peanut butter, or almond butter or anything oatmeal based in the house. It's not that I want a cookie, or some peanut butter, it's that I'm going to eat ALL OF THEM until they are gone (in one sitting) and then feel terrible about it once it's done.

    Anyway, my 2 cents.
