really enjoyed training tonight really enjoying the workout ive got going on here, i have noticed that ive been feeling more energetic during the day getting back to the weights.

Have also managed to get an extra small meal in the day as well which tends to be something like a tin of tuna with some chopped up veg or something similar which i know doesnt sound like a lot but to me its a positive step forwards.

i have tried to work out what kind of calories and what not that i am getting through in a day and here is a rough working out:

calories = 2800
protein = 180g

havent yet worked out fat nor carbs but will do.

current weight as of today is 140 pounds (most people on here seem to talk in pounds so i especially converted it :-) thats an increase for me will have to look back through records to find out by how much but thats a good thing.

can anyone tell me roughly if thats what i weigh then am in eating enough protein i know that i still need to work on upping my calorie intake but this is something i am going to just have to work on in my own time i dont want to go making myself sick.

feedback would be great cheers everyone hope your all good

haha...thanks for listing it in pounds you could probably eat a little more protein...but make sure you count up the carbs and fat too...if you increase 1-2 pounds a week your usually on the right track.

i started out around 138 pounds...so we were in the same boat

You know it wouldn't hurt for you to have a little disclaimer briefly explaining that you have to slowly up your calories due to surgery...so that in case people start commenting without reading your history you won't have to constantly explain it. Because you could get a lot of the standard "you need to eat more" thing. You could make that a signature or something...just an idea.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

good advice eric so as you will note i have done what you suggested :-) my starting weight prior to training was 133 pounds (this would have been about 4-6 weeks ago i started getting back to the gym prior to doing this program whilst i was increasing my food intake) however starting weight post surgery was around 119 pounds (and im just under 6 foot tall and 25 years old) my current bodyfat percentage is 5% done with a caliper test (if thats how you spell it!)

whats your current weight now then pitysister? your pic looks like youve done a great job of increasing your weight then?
