    Step on scale @ same time every day weight fluctuates up to 3 lbs

    Step on scale every morning after waking up after restroom business and weight fluctuates. Of course it will - I realize water weight, amount of crap in tummy etc etc.

    I compare weekly averages. But even that can vary by up to 2 lbs

    Issue is how do I know at what rate am I gaining or loosing weight? Look at trends but that takes two to three weeks to come through after a change in calorie intake (+250 or -250 per day)

    How do you track it?

    Assuming you're over age 14 and a male...

    Should we really use the word 'tummy'?

    The power of carbs compels me!

    You answered your own question; look at trends and give any caloric intake change 2-3 weeks to show the effect.

    My weight fluctuates 3-4lb. After weighing myself everyday multiple times a day for a week or 2 I’ll know my range. I’m currently 185-189. If I hit 184 I’m making progress. If I hit 190 then something needs to change.

    My weight for the past 26 days

    Damn, this BB’ing is kicking my ass at the patience game...

    I look phucking same to myself for the last few months. I cut and my girl and people start saying everyday how skinny I look. Specially people I’ve not met for months - they’re shocked and ask if everything is ok in life

    And I I start eating a slight surplus I feel like a bloated balloon.

    Only one week back into my cut and thinking about switching back to slight surplus.

    This is why it's better to track your weight with a 7 day moving average. If you have an iPhone the app Happy Scale is great for it and it's free.

    Weigh yourself once a week. At the same time. Don't do it daily.

    I weigh myself daily at the same time and use the Happy Scale app which averages everything out and removes the "noise" from the equation.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    I have data from when I started my weight loss/health journey and was able to import it into happy scale via Apple health. Just fabulous!!

    Thx for sharing the app

    Sodium intake, water intake, almost anything. If you’re really concerned go on a diet and drop a few pounds so the weight change doesn’t bug you.

    I want to get lean, but the loss in overall size is bugging me. I look like a skinnier version of skinny fat me at 25% bodyfat. It’s pretty conflicting feelings... I’m gonna have to go shopping and get medium clothes instead of large that I been wearing. Clothes from 18 years ago (yes, have some still) are fitting me fine now lol

    And the recent clothes feel like huge sacks.

    Final decision is to continue cutting till I can’t take no more. I don’t like the skinny feel and look but other people sayingI look skinny as phuck makes it more chittier. lol. Don’t really care for strangers and friends but when my chick says it, don’t really like it. She’s pretty, petite and hot so don’t think it’s a jealousy issue.

    I wonder if 100 calorie surplus would be ok since I still have tons of stored fat. I am about 20% right now and i plan on ending my cut in 4 weeks at about 18%. If not satisfied go another 1.5 months and get to 15% and then for sure lean bulk to 18%. Rinse and repeat.

    I’ve had moobs all my life and they’re going away/hardening finally. Can’t wait...

    If you're really 20% you need to cut, not bulk. You can gain muscle while cutting.

    Do you have a picture? People who think they're 20% are usually higher.

    I am in the ballpark of I think. Front pics look a lot higher than 20%. Have had moobs since I can remember. Early teens I think. But look at the side pics too.

    Pics are in the gallery. Since the pics I have lost a bit of weight and put on lil muscle also. But what do you think the percentage in the pics look like?

    My ideal is to be stay around 13% to 15% bodyfat. 10 and 12 is too shredded imo

My resting heart rate had been 54/55 since I lost a bunch of weight and when I was on ICF it up in the 70s and 80s

    I recently went into a cut, and switched to Fierce 5 - so I can start a bulk as soon as I hit my target of “however skinny I can tolerate to be”.

    Even in a cut, and only been on it for a couple week, Fierce 5 is giving me better results. I can feel it in the way shirts are fitting me. Can’t wait to see what gains will be like on a bulk.
    On top resting heart rate on workout days after workout has been in 60s. Next day drops back down to 50s. So I’m all good on recovery looks like.

    Loving Fierce 5!!

    I made the classic mistake of “more is better” mentality. More is not better. Less is more actually!!

    From September 28 to October 17 you seem to have gained 3 pounds. That's too much at your current body fat level.

    Can you make progress on Fierce 5 without gaining weight? If so, that's what I would recommend.

    If not, I'd try to focus losing some body fat by losing 1 pound per week.

    Edit: If I'm reading it right you're already cutting. If so just keep going.

    20% is not far off.

    Yes, that’s what I’m doing currently.

    That weight gain was during a 7 day vacation Lol. No regrets. It was not a surprise when I stepped on the scale when I got back. lmao some was water weight also two days straight I logged 5500 plus calories (no drinks) and couple days was over 3000.

    I’m back down to 167 lbs already (1lb fat and 2lb water weight I think). Trying to loose 1lb per week currently just like you suggested.

    I am also progressing on most lifts in fierce 5 even during my cut. Had to reset my bench press and overhead press due to shoulder impingement issues - don’t wanna push too too hard even though my lifts are low.
    **^^ Work hard AND more importantly, work smart ^^**

    Try to keep your weigh in conditions the same. Meaning if ya took a long ass horse piss and a big poo then do that the next time around. If you had a light evening meal don't have a heavy ass one the next week or weigh in period.

    Fitness is a science. Keep your variables roughly the same!

    Weigh once a week on the same time under the same conditions after waking up and peeing. Friday is a good day to do it as normally your diet during the week can sometimes contain fewer carbs and the more carbs the more water retention. Water is the factor in getting a more accurate reading on the scale.

    Keeping as many factors consistent will help with accuracy. Not to say every Friday will show a linear movement however it generally is going to be more consistent that not considering the previous day’s carb intake.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    This is a super common psychological phenomenon. From 25% all the way down to like 18% can look the same-but-smaller to you. The magic happens at about 16% when things start to look bigger because the muscles are finally showing through. It's almost like 20-25% is a "no man's land" for cutting. Just be aware of this before deciding to stop your cut around 18%--at that point you're really close to seeing things start to pop.

    If the deadlift/row variations aren't enough counter-movement, then try just hanging from a pullup bar to let the shoulder stretch out. Resetting will temporarily relieve it, but if you don't address the imbalance then you'll just hit that wall again.
