    However you do look a little smaller overall in the "after" picture than in the before.

    Start recording your measurements when you weigh/photo yourself as it can help to determine progress.

    Thank you! I have started to record measurements now so I hope it's just my mind playing tricks on me. When I compare the two I can't see a difference so it's nice to know someone can lol.

    Also if I may ask, when you say "smaller", do you mean a little less muscular? Or a little less fat? I just wanted to make sure I'm doing this right haha. But I appreciate it!

    Going through this right right now. So I’ll drop a couple words. PM me if you want to talk more.

    I went from 200lbs to currently 163lbs. In my eyes I couldn’t tell the difference till I got to 180lbs. So
    180vs 200lbs I can see difference.

    Since 180, I’m now 163 and I still don’t see a difference. I know I’m getting stronger cuz I can lift more weight. and there are days when I feel leaner in the mornings. But during the day I feel the same old me. Even though people tell me I’ve lost weight. Some get concerned if I’m sick or something. Lol. Intake that as positive feedback cuz that means weightloss is happening.

    You need to trust this and keep going. Keep dropping that weight and keep lifting weights, eat 1g per lb of body weight, 0.5g fat per lb and rest in carbs and follow a proven weight lifting program (Deload and reset as the program says).

    There were days when I would feel real sluggish and body was screaming for food. I wouldn’t give it to the body. Listen to your body. If you feel real down for a day or so, eat two days at maintenance. You will feel like no, I’m full. Don’t need to eat all this. Trust me. Eat at maintenance for 1 or 2 days and go right back to your deficit. 1lb per week or so. If you need a couple days at maintenance every 10 days or so, that’ll be fine. I take 1 day personally every 7 days and I dropped 50 calories a day to make up for it.

    Do not quit loosing weight cuz later you’ll regret it (I quit twice and went to maintenance once - that was the greatest waste of time. Once I went into a bulk. I wish I had just cut till 13% to 14% before going to bulk).

    Goodluck!! If weight is coming off and your lifts are progressing or you can lift the same weight as last week/month, you’re on the right track.

    Edit: I can see difference in your fat specially on the side moobs and slightly in the lower stomach. So it’s working

    Thank you very much!! I would absolutely love to talk with you more because I'm very interested to hear what you have to say; especially about how I'm approaching this and seeing how you're doing this! I don't want to derail the thread any further though, but I can't seem to figure out how to send a PM on here :') any way you can send me one? Lol but thank you again!

    What is my current bodyfat?

    Do you see any improvement anywhere compared to my last pics? And where are the improvements?

    I feel like I look the same (but I am lighter and stronger )

    How many more pounds to loose you think to get to 13% to 14%?

    Some days I look lesser fat than others. Each pics is one a day over the last few days

    My plan is to cut to 158lbs and then start a slow bulk gaining 2lbs a month for 7 to 8 months. That sounds fair or should
    I switch to bulk now?

    Thank you. I feel like I always have a hard time cutting down my body fat to where I want it to be. Ideally, I would like to be around 10% body fat or a little less, but I'm 6'2 and weigh 175 lb, and am not really looking to drop too much more weight at this point. At the same time, I feel like I still have too much fat to start a bulking cycle. I'm also going to be restricted to doing home workouts for a little while longer, obviously because of Covid.

    A forward facing picture, relaxed, would make estimating your BF a lot easier.

    FYI: A drop of 5 more pounds would put you at roughly 13%. You would have to go to 164ish to get to about 10%

    Hi there! First time posting and i would love some advice. Last summer (for the first time in my life) i got quite fatty. The last four months i started a strict 500 caloric deficit diet with some lifting exercise. Male, 34 years old, 6 feet high (1,84), starting weight 207 pounds, now 175 pounds. Everyone around me, family and friends (no one with a dream body which i would admire) telling me i got to skinny but i want to be leaner i guess. I would like to get some bf estimates from the beginning to now. I try to link imgur pictures. Thank you.

    Ok, after struggling with uploading images on Imgur and linking it here i realized i can't due to newbie status. Uploaded the pics in my Bodyspace progress photos. Awaiting some estimates... Thanks for your patience

    Thanks for the answer. 13% was expected... Could you give me my starting estimate? Would say about 30ish maybe... And should I keep dieting before gaining?

    My plan is to cut to 158lbs and then start a slow bulk gaining 2lbs a month for 7 to 8 months. That sounds fair or should
    I switch to bulk now?
    Based on all of the pictures, 21%.

    Meaning that you would have to drop to about 150 pounds to get to 14%.

    In order for you to get 13-14% as Luclin stated you would need to drop to 150lb or below and personally at 5ft 8 I would say that is a perfectly acceptable target to aim for. Cutting 5lbs is likely to do nothing as a large portion of that maybe water weight, glycogen and general substance in your body.

    You are at that stage where you wont generally see any massive built gains as around 20% bf makes it harder to see muscle progress that is generally wise 'experts' across the internet suggest cutting to below 15%, the actual hormonal growth isn't that much effected by normal bf% ranges. So if you cut down to below 15% you will see the progress you made through the increase of your strength.

    However as always cutting to lower bf% is likely to cause mental doubts that you are losing muscle and look too skinny, it happens to everyone. Just stick to your level of leanness you wish to achieve and go for it whilst trying your upmost to maintain your strength.

    <— naah j/k. It is what it is. Just gotta get leaner

    But that’s just insane - I was thinking that I’m hopefully lower bodyfat Than that but I’m not

    This skinny fat really sucks. I look so skinny with shirt on. Even mediums are loose on me now.

    I’ll try and cut to as low as I can tolerate - even this is too skinny for me at this time but we shall see. Another thing is my TDEE will drop so much more if I get that low bodyweight and that don’t go well with corona / staying indoors and me being a food lover Lol

    Thank you luclin999 and hardyboysare!! I’ll follow up for another estimate in 4 to 6 weeks...

    10-11%.

    If you are going for "abs" then you probably should just start a bulk because it doesn't look like you have them developed enough to be much more visible than they already are.

    Thank you to everyone who helped me out here a few months ago. Hoping to get back onto the 2020 pressing thread once I have barbell access again (just dumbbells for now). Been bulking for the last few months from 162 to 170 lb at 6'1".

    imgur.com/6EI4IHE

    Started doing legit strength programs back in November (nsuns, A2S2, and now BTM) as well as training for a century. Any idea on bf %? Presumably I should keep bulking for the time being?
