I've been trying to lose weight for 54 days now and look at the progress!! I've lost nearly 3kgs! And I know better not to go crazy about losing weight like my mum (ex-anorexic) did when she was young. I walk and kind of work out and try not to eat too much. That's all I do. I guess I succeeded because I have weight that can be lost. I have some chubs on my tummy. :-)
The reason why I started to go on a diet is because I thought the less fat I have on me, the better top surgery might look. I've seen chubby ftm guys and slim and masculine ftm guys have their top surgery and it honestly turns out better on the latter group.
