    Weight: 161.0 Pounds
    Waist: 29.7
    Lower Stomach/back: 32.6"

    Sleep schedule is back to normal and my weight is basically back to what it was 2.5 weeks ago before the sleep deprivation so...

    Conclusion:

    Sleep = Good

    No Sleep = Bad

    Weight: 161.2 Pounds
    Waist: 29.6
    Lower Stomach/back: 32.5"

    Weight has been all over the place this past week bouncing around from 160 to 163.6. And that is not surprising as I have been eating roughly at maintenance as my average for the past eight days mostly due to bad weather preventing my usual 3-4 days of cycling and keeping me inside thus lowering my overall calorie consumption for the week.

    I tried substituting time on my Percor elliptical machine however not only was it a lot more boring, I also had a really hard time getting my heart rate up past 130 bpm while on it even with it set to the highest resistance and maximum elevation. However unless the weather improves this afternoon, I may have to try it again later today.

    Weight: 160.0 Pounds
    Waist: 29.4
    Lower Stomach/back: 32.3"

    Making progress in the right direction again.

    Still not sure how much I will have to drop to completely deplete the fat in the lower stomach/back but whether I do or not I will probably just stop cutting once my waist hits 29" and the lower stomach/back hits 32".

    Weight: 159.4 Pounds
    Waist: 29.4
    Lower Stomach/back: 32.2"

    Haven't made really any progress over the past week and a half. Relaxed a bit and been eating at maintenance mostly to see what happens and when eating that way my weight looks like it jumps back up by 2-3 pounds and stays at that level (probably glycogen stores being replenished).

    Going to spend the next 2-3 weeks back at the 600+ cal/day deficit levels and see where that gets me by Labor day.

    Enjoy seeing a realistic transformation from someone that obviously understands the process, nice work! I'm going through one myself right now, lockdown really messed with my activity levels and general well being and I got up to around 21-22% bodyfat, currently on my way back down and I'm within about 8 lbs of my goal now.

    I may have missed it, but how tall are you?

    I agree with this. Can’t believe this is my first time checking out this thread. I would guess your around 5’10 but I missed that too. My husband is try again to lose weight but won’t listen to crash diets don’t work it’s life style changes. I’m gunna show him this. I really think you also gained muscle while losing weight. How has your strength and energy been? And with sleep, cutting can actually cause insomnia. What is one of the biggest factors /thing you did to lose weight?

    He's 6', I just now checked his bodyspace. Yeah 159 is getting down there at that height.

    Now I don't feel so bad now dropping down to 198 at 6'5".

    6' tall (but you already found that...)

    And yes, sub 160 is pretty light but frankly I don't ~feel~ ridiculously skinny ATM so chasing down and getting rid of the last bits of stubborn fat is still the priority.

    (Frankly, I've probably lost all of the lean mass already that I am going to during this cut anyway)

    It's possible that I managed to recover a bit of old gains and build up a couple of under developed areas like my shoulders and backside a bit over the past few months but the rest is probably just from being able to see the muscle definition more clearly without all of the fat covering it.


    My sleep (Except for the three weeks taking care of the baby bird) has been fine. Usually four hours of deep sleep along with four hours of light sleep each night with is generally what I need. Strength and energy are generally good. My lifts are still up a bit from the starting levels back in April.

    As to losing the weight. Consistency. I plan out all of my food for the day in Myfitnesspal first thing before eating anything. That way I can just take a look at the log for each meal and eat accordingly. It avoids impulse eating and "forgetting" things that I might have had that might not have made it into the log if I had eaten first and then tried to remember everything hours later.

    I also track a summary of daily calories and estimated daily TDEE in Excel so that I can track weekly/monthly averages.

    I really didn't notice much difference from the 2-3 pounds that came back on at maintenance, but my wife did make the comment last week that I was basically "nothing but shoulders & legs now" so maybe a bit more visual in those areas?

    Today:

    Weight: 158.8 Pounds
    Waist: 29.4
    Lower Stomach/back: 32.2"

    Weight is definitely dropping again, measurements haven't changed but I expect that will happen after another pound or so is lost.

    If I had to guess, I'd say that I am in the "12%" BF range now.

    I've been experimenting with my calories, bouncing around "Maintenance", "Slight deficit" and "Slight surplus" each week for the past month to get an idea of how that spread of a few hundred calories difference effects my body overall. Mostly seeing my weight bounce back and forth between 157.8 and 163 depending upon how I was eating that week. Which is of course mostly water/glycogen changes.

    I'll probably switch over to a 3-4 week "serious" cut mode at a 500-700 cal/day deficit on Monday though to see what it takes to get rid of the last bit of significant fat on my lower back.
