    85.7kg this morning. 0.7kg to go. I think this is one of those low days though, so expecting 86.x tomorrow.

    My day is as follows:

    0630 1hr Workout
    0730 20 minutes of basketball and shuttle runs

    1145 1 hour of cycling at high intensity

    1800 Evening walk

    That'll give me allowance to eat around 3000 calories today and still be under by 400 or so. That's another contributor to an 86.x weigh in tomorrow morning!

    0700 1hr workout
    1230 1 hour walk

    Possibly go out for a bike ride later. Not sure.

    Either way, feeling reasonable today. Below photo shows 7 week improvement, which is minimal but still progress.

    Last few days have been reasonable. I've eaten over my calorie count for the last couple of days, and need to eat a bit less for the next couple of days to balance it out.

    Hoping for around 86kg for the weigh in tomorrow. If I don't hit 86kg, then no worries - I'm only aiming for 85kg on the 28th, so still more than 2 weeks remaining.

    Solid workout this morning, with the normal planned workout and an additional core specific workout. Might go for a bike ride later if the weather holds, but I have so much on today that it'll be a struggle to find time.

    Really need a solid day of eating as the last three days now have been 200-40) above maintenance. Not awful, but I really don't want this to keep slipping.

    I'm just 0.9kg away from my goal weight. This comparison is of November 2019 when I was 89.5kg and of today at 85.9kg.

    I hit a mental low after the photo on the left, andI binged from the day after this photo until mid March at which point I was 100kg.



    I thought I was looking pretty good, and felt really lean, but 3 months of strict diet and exercise have shown that my body composition wasn't great, and I still had so much fat that I could lose.

    Really looking forward to starting a bulk and seeing some improvements in LBM.

    Great job man. You are an inspiration. I’m pretty much where you were with the binge eating. It sucks, but I know I can get past it I just have to be patient a little bit. I think I’m gonna make a log here as well and post daily for accountability.

    Cheers for the comments. Binge eating certainly sucks, and yes, it is just patience and taking things step by step. I'd love to say that I know the cure or what to do, but I really had it forced on me - I couldn't risk getting COVID and passing it to my pregnant wife, my high risk parents or my newborn nephew, and therefore I wouldn't go into the shops to buy the food.

    Progress in the last few days:

    Went for a run. I don't normally run because of my weight and my false hips, but I ended up running a constant 20 minutes at around 8:45 a mile. That's slow compared to 4 years ago where I could do a 7:40 min/mile 10km, but it's alright for a 190lb guy with false hips that never runs!

    Workouts have been solid. Haven't dropped any weights or sets, and have continued to increase some of them - most likely as I have eaten at a slightly above maintenance figure on 3 or so of the last 6 days.

    Weight-wise I weighed in today at 85.4kg, which is just 0.4kg away from my cut goal. I've now got 12 days to lose that final 0.4kg - normally I would say easy, but I have a birthday BBQ coming up, and a fathers day meal as well, so there will be a few challenging social events to face up to. It should still be simple enough to lose 0.4kg!

    5.5km non-stop swim this morning. Arms are feeling it now. Weighed in at 86kg. Not concerned if I miss that 85kg now - wife is already saying too skinny in the face.

    Cycled 61 miles / 99km today and was home by 1100 - feels great to set your mind to something, achieve it and be home before some people are even functioning properly.

    Food Diary for a day like today:

    Porridge + Raspberry, Blueberry and Raisins (480)
    Protein Shake (120)
    Flapjack (330)
    Greek Yoghurt + Nectarine, Peach, Apple and Grapes. (500)
    Egg, Beans, Spinach and Halloumi with a slice of toast (600)
    Protein shake (120)
    Chicken, chips and salad (700)
    Protein Brownie (300)

    Calories Total 3150

    - Daily TDEE: 2300
    - Bike Ride: 1600

    Total: -750

    That's what I call a great day

    This thread is now a reminder of however many times I have failed, I can still succeed.

    GOAL WEIGHT #1 ACHIEVED!!!!

    I hit 85.1kg on the scales today, meaning I have now lost 15.5kg, and hit the cutting goal I had set myself!

    I'm now going to lean bulk for the next 12 weeks, eating 300-500 calories above maintenance and following the All Pros routine.

    I guess the aim is to gain 3-4kg in that time and re-evaluate the next steps as to if I should cut again for the 6 weeks up to Christmas and then bulk again during the gluttony and excess of Christmas meals.

    Massive news! well done dude. Struggling with an eating disorder must make this journey twice as hard so respect for that!

    Sorry I only posted at the end of the log but looks like an inspiring journey

    Cheers, it certainly makes it difficult to cut when you can't concentrate on anyone or anything because your brain is obsessing over eating and sending all of those impulse signals. These past 100 days have been brutal at times, but the end result is that I have lost over 34lbs and I would (now) be pretty confident that 28-30lbs were fat.

    Just noted you've started a thread - will check it out and keep tracking.

    I'll still check in and post, just less frequently. As I am bulking for 12 weeks i'll probably just update with a weekly progress report and then get back to daily accountability once bulk has finished and I move back to the cut phase - figure I will be aiming for 84kg on the next cut.

    Good luck dude, I find sometimes bulking is much more frustrating than cutting. Results are slower and less linear

    Lifts going up feel fookin amazing after a cut though!

    Next week will be a repeat of this week, but with an extra rep added to all exercises @ the same weight. Continue this for 5 weeks, and if I complete all reps at the 5 week point then I can go up 10%.
