View Full Version : Chubs at 180lbs...

03-12-2006, 12:11 PM
Decided to take some pictures of me at 180 today. I'm bloated as hell from all the **** I've been eating this weekend, and I usually sit at 175-176, so I figure I have about 4-5lbs of water sloshing around in me. Started here about 2yrs ago and was sitting at 157lbs. Before joining, I was up to 245lbs at about 5'7-5'8. I used to be fat as hell haha. Anyhow, I'm throwing 2 pictures from 157 up for reference.

And here's the pictures from today...

You look pretty solid when you tense but very much less so relaxed.

What do you think your body fat % is? I'm horrible at guessing.

Thanks guys. As far as BF I don't really know. I stay fairly lean in my back and shoulders, but abdomen and lowerback holds A LOT of fat. Anybody want to take a guess, go ahead.

03-12-2006, 03:36 PM
I'll guess 17-18%

Is that the camera angle, or do you have some gynecomastia?

03-12-2006, 03:37 PM
You might even be lower bf, but it's hard to tell. It'd like I can almost see your abs peeking through, which would put you closer to the 10-12% range, but your chest is more like an 18% chest.

If that makes any sense at all...

Heh its tough work moving down from being heavy no one ever tells you of the leftover problems you have and it seems no matter how hard you work you hold fat in certain places, im dealin with that right now and its been 2 years now. You having any problems with skin?

03-12-2006, 04:15 PM
Huuuuuuuuge improvement!

03-12-2006, 04:51 PM
Wow man, looking alot better in the second set. Good job. Keep on truckin.:shoot:

03-12-2006, 05:20 PM
Thanks guys. I'm sure I've got a bit of gyno, but oh well, after being as fat as I was, everything can't go perfectly. I still have a bit of loose skin on my lower abs, and I can see the top two when I'm in pretty good light.

Jinkies- I had really bad loose skin and actually had to have surgery for it awhile back.

Thanks a lot for the kind words guys. If anybody cares to take a guess at my bf% go ahead, as I'm interested to see what people think I'm sitting at.

Eric, I'll try and get some pictures put up. I don't have any with my shirt off, but I'll try and find some that show how big I was.

Difficult to say what your body fat is... Everytime I see someone guess on another person on this site, I find myself more confused about my own, visually. For instance, in the shot where your arms are up in the air... Well, I can't see your rib cage at all. On me? I can see my rib cage, but my love handles are larger than yours... Crazy, huh? Yeah that is the problem...

Your love handles are not big which one have my guess a lower body fat, but there also isn't any ribs showing, or major muscle groups, which gives you a higher one. If I had to guess, I'd say somewhere around 16% - 19%...

Great job on gaining some size. There is a night and day difference from the two sets of pictures.

looking good bro..great improvements

03-13-2006, 06:49 PM
Thanks for the kind comments guys. My ribcage is actually pretty visible, though it appears it was washed out in the pictures. Here is two pictures from when I was fat. Not great pictures but you get the idea.

03-13-2006, 08:25 PM
wow, you've come quite a long way! keep up the great work!

03-13-2006, 08:29 PM
yea you really have come a long way. i bet you'll be pretty damn massive in a year if you keep it up. good back btw
