    If you lost exactly 0 LBM you would need to get down to 161 to be 15%, but it never really works out that way, so you can pretty much bet you'll need to get down to at least 155 (or less) to hit 15%....

    You're short with pretty high body fat (around 24-25% based on your photos), so I'd be surprised if your TDEE is that high, but whatever you say.

    Just track your calories and adjust as required...

    Actually now that I look at it on my big monitor and not my phone you're probably in the 13-14% range, but just carrying most of your fat in your lower stomach. Also if your abs aren't developed...

    None of what you posted makes any difference, bottom line if you're stalled out is that you need to EAT LESS or increase calorie expenditure (MOVE MORE).

    Two weeks really isn't a big enough sample size (especially the first 2 weeks), but as long as you're losing no more than about 1% of your overall bodyweight per week then you're good.

    Concur with the others, traditional "bulking" at age 38 bulking with a bodyfat over 15% really isn't worth your time. You're not going to "pack on muscle" as a natty at your age.

    We have no way of answering that question. Are you getting at least 0.8g of protein per lb of bodyweight daily? Are you gaining about 1-2 lbs per month? If so, then you're eating enough.
