Good work mate! What lifting routine are you running? Are you Doing IF, or just low calorie?
Currently doing a hybrid of Starting Strength on top of another dumbbell program I found online. I'm a diehard IF convert, I really don't think I could have made it this far without it. Being able to go about my day without thinking about food then feasting at night has been a huge help for me on this cut.
I lost much more in 12 weeks (look at my sig or bodyspace), but wanted to update here for some motivation. I was 41/42" in pants and they were TIGHT when I started 19 weeks ago. I thought 34" would be good for Christmas, had to exchange things for 32" today. Felt good. Size 30 is a bit too tight still. Also 4 weeks of those 19 weeks, I did not train. 1 week was Disney world around week 6, and weeks 16-18 I was resting due to tendonitis in both my shoulder and knees.
cut is going pretty good in terms of weight loss, but i still have a bit of fat on thighs/lower back/triceps
might as well drop the goal to 155
worst case scenario in the end, i hit 145, bulk to 155, cut to 145, etc

Been doing Wendlers 5-3-1 for the last 8 weeks and have had some noticeable strength gains already. Definetly like it alot because im in and out of the gym within 45min to 1hr and def dont feel as fatigued the rest of the week. Strength gains keep coming and hitting new Pr's every week.
