    You might not be eating enough. I know it sounds contradictory, but if you are working out too much and not feeding your body correctly, then your cells will burn at a lower rate and hold onto your fat.

    First and foremost, congrats on the weight loss. 145lbs at 5'11 isnt ideal either, is there a specific reason why it has to be 50 lbs?
    Did the extra skin shrink or is it loose? You should consider hiring a trainer.

    Danke icon_biggrin.gif and the skin has tightened up some but not much icon_sad.gif my doc here in Germany actually sent me to a plastic surgeon but I can't get the skin cut off b/c I have to get back to school I mean school comes first. And I'm kind of about to do that, I'm gonna join a boxing gym when I get back home but still I just want everyone's input here

    Congrats indeed. I know what it takes to make those kinds of losses. At one point I had lost 100lbs. myself. Saddly I've gone up from the low and not in muscle.

    Depending on how long you've been "stuck" you might consider taking a break from thinking about it. I wouldn't stop excersising or eating healthy, but just give yourself some time. I went a little too far with my weight loss and started doing stupid things towards the end. Relax and enjoy your progress. You're doing great.

    Usually for persons with a cholesterol problem, it actually dissolves fat deposits in the body and flushes them out.

    My advice is to mix up your workout routine and watch your diet.

    Keep track of your calorie intake and see if you're eating more than you realize. Every fat person says "I don't really eat that much." But we do. And until we keep a log it doesn't click how fast the calories add up.

    Every fat person that lost a lot of weight starts to lighten up on the rules that helped them get there in the first place. So we back slide or simply plateau within a range. Go back to your thoughts from 200 pounds ago and renew that drive. Stay vigilant watching the types of foods you eat and committed to vigorous cardio exercise.

    Keep it simple, more calories spent than ingested and that last 50 or so should go away. Try different activities that keep you interested. For me I started going to Zumba classes and took up rowing to work into my usual routine of swimming, biking, and running.

    Remember why you first decided to get in shape and find that inspiration again. You're a super guy that can accomplish anything you put your mind too. So I'm sure whatever final pounds you want to shed will eventually disappear.

    good luck. icon_smile.gif

    All the stress from school and lack of sleep might be hampering you too.

    Try cutting red meat out of your diet and have chicken or fish as the substitue. If you can cut sodas and juice monday through friday it will help too. As far the gym goes, mix weight training and cardio...should help you trim down. Some change has to take place first before you see the good results. icon_smile.gif

    I don't eat red meat that much and I haven't drank soda since 2008 and I do the workout on here and what scott herman says for me to do, I need like workouts that athletes do to get in shape.

    Holy Crap! 200 lbs. Man, that's amazing. Well, as far as the last 50 lbs., kickboxing is amazing cardio- so you might wanna try that.
