Good job man! I've lost a good amount of poundage too. My double chin, gut, and love handles have slimmed down a lot. I've increased my muscle mass too! Man boobs are slowly turning into pecs, and my arms aren't so flabby.

I'll post my update at the end of the month

Try swimming you burn so much fat and calories by swimming and you also work pretty much every muscle in your body whilst doing it

Hey well done OP on continuing with your workout  Good motivation.   
A little tip though which worked for me was that you change up your arm workout.   
You should try to push the weight a little more to about 10-11kg (I think 22-24 pounds) and do 10 reps for 3 sets as it'll get the muscle showing and increase the strength of your arms. An hour for just curling seems like a very long time and is also unnecessary and it just builds up endurance, so it just helps you last longer (inb4hue). And you could also try curling 15kg (33 pounds) if you want. Aaanndd one last thing you could try other types of arm exercises, here's some I do;

Well done for pursuing that path to fitness m10. I just wanna mention that in regards to diets, add in the good fats such as nuts and olive oil since they contain some of the essential fatty acids (monosatuates) whereby they're utilised for energy burning as opposed to energy storage. When metabolised, they yield large quantities of ATP which are basically energy carriers in the cells.

As for the workouts, I feel an hour just curling alone is quite prolonged and unnecessary (at least spend 15 mins at most doing 3-5 sets, 8-12 reps each with the heaviest weight possible). Bodyweight exercises are good but in terms of muscle building and hypertrophy, you can only go as far as progressing to a certain amount and then you sort of plateau. Doing these exercises in the 50+ rep range just mainly increases muscle endurance as opposed to building muscle. For push ups, still work within that range and at the same time, try to include various forms of press ups where you can only manage 20 reps max. That way when you increase the intensity, you promote muscle building which in turn promotes fat burning as well. I know it seems scary at first but honestly try to implement weightlifting into your programme. It's so much better in terms of fat burning, muscle building and plus, it's more fun and sustainable than bodyweight exercises.

The way it often works, 1-5 reps typical promotes strength, 8-12 reps promote muscle building and 12+ reps promotes muscle endurance. Crunches and sit ups are still quite good but they're no where near essential, especially when trying to get abs. If you want abs, it's mainly about low bodyfat and good nutrition. If you wanna define them more, then do core exercises with high resistance, low reps such as weighted sit ups in the 15-20 rep range. You can find out more if you read the sticky on the 4Chan /fit/ page.

GOOD LUCK BRO!

OP, I is proud. You say you do about an hour of curls though? Dumbbells are much more dynamic than that and you can easily burn fat and gain muscle more quickly with muscle confusion. Otherwise you will become a simple curlbro and you will be out of proportion. I might suggest looking up the Spartacus workout in place of the curls.
