    A little check-in from me. I am 5'10 and back in January I started in around 190 lbs. I lost 15 lbs in that 3-month thread. I am down to 171 lbs this morning, which is the lightest I have been in about 5 years. I am taking it slow with a goal of hitting 168 or 165 sometime this summer. At that point I plan to reverse diet so I can fire up metabolism enough so the weight doesn't immediately come back. Feels good to hit these goals. It's becoming a lifestyle now and not just a rush to drop weight. I am okay with a slow roll at this point since I feel good and am looking a lot better to boot. I took a two week diet break and ate at maintenance last month and that was a great move. Best of luck to those moving forward.

    Haven't been too strict this week, and because of it I havent lost much either. Will have to eat less junk, or at least more calorie-low foods.

    I am 25M and 6' tall. After bulking for the first time for about eight months, I began a cut on March 20. For the most 5.5-6 weeks, I ate at a 500 calorie deficit, though in recent days I've added some cardio (about 100 calories) to the routine because things seemed to be stalling for several days. I am continuing to lift heavy and, in fact, some of my lifts are even going up (e.g., I can now bench 245 lbs at about 5 reps, which I never really did while bulking). The data are below. I want to get to about 12-13% BF before doing a very slow bulk for about a year. Some days I feel totally ripped on the cut, others I feel very small. The abs are really starting to show, though, for the first time in my life.

    Notes

    10.6 lbs to lose in 5 week remaining.
    2.12 lbs to lose per week needed to reach goal on time.

    1.
    This last week I focused on getting my anemia under control, eating whole foods and more iron. I think I actually lost fat even though it's not reflected on the scale. My weigh in today had my stomach and intestines still full of food, so it wasn't a 'dry' weigh-in. Still, I have weeks to go before I'm at 10% or 12% body fat.

    2.
    I'm at 202.6 lbs around 15.1 % body fat.

    Flexed & good lighting ^

    With 1 week to go, I am realistically going to finish just above 200 lbs, somewhere in the 14% body fat range.
    While it's excellent progress since New Years, I still want to be shredded by the summer, so I will extend my cut to Monday, June 19, 2023.

    I can realistically make it to somewhere between 192.7 lbs (10.7%) and 197.6 lbs (13%).

    I'm going to continue training for aesthetic physique purposes, so my focus will be on making choices that will pack on muscle where I feel I need it most.

    For example, I'm not going to be training in the 1 to 4 rep range, and the overwhelming majority of my workouts will be on machines instead of free weights.

    Cheers brother

    My last three weekly weigh-ins have been 171.6 (was almost 190 back in December). Got as low as 170 on the non-official weigh-in day. I would like to be 168 or so by the end of June. Taking it slow and currently fighting another sickness that probably originated from my kid's daycare.

    Have eaten pretty similarly to last week, but still lost weight, until this morning. Was at 114kg/251lbs yesterday, but today the scale read more than a kg higher.. oh well, probably water weight.

    Notes

    8.2 lbs to lose in 4 week remaining.
    2.05 lbs to lose per week needed to reach goal on time.

    1.
    This was a good dry weigh-in.
    I'm 200.2 lbs around 14.1% body fat.
    My anemia is getting under control and I feel relatively better.
    Lots of red meat, black beans, and iron supplements.
    Life advice, if you decide to go vegetarian, or accidentally go vegetarian in my case, make sure to take iron supplements.

    2.
    With 4 weeks to go, I can realistically make it to somewhere between 192.3 lbs (10.6%) and 196.2 lbs (12.3%).

    Kind of in a holding pattern right now. My goal is to be 168 or 167 by mid-July. Kind of tired of dieting so doing what I can to stay in maintenance mode for a while. It sucks to be constantly cutting so a break from here and there is good. Perhaps I will make another strong run this week and the next. Seems like I am bale to hold my weight steady and not regain though, which is great.

    I’m visiting relatives and brought my scale, but the batteries in their remote control needed to be replaced, so I cannibalized the batteries from my scale, so I’ve been without the use of a scale for some time now.


    I did buy a pair of 40 pound dumbbells from Fray fitness, they took 7 days to get to me and they just arrived today and I’ve been training arms.

    The additional weight measured last time did as expected go away the day after, may just have been my scale.

    Continuing in this pace until the end of July will probably be perfect to get to where I want to be. Excited to see the changes in the coming weeks.

    Well, I was able to hit my goal weight for this thread. I am at the lowest I have been since my wedding almost 5 years ago. As you can see I kind of went in maintenance mode for several weeks. That was intentional. I don't think 6 months of caloric deficit is healthy. I jumped back into a calorie deficit last week and lost 3.4 lbs which was my biggest drop since January. I am believer in a diet breaks as I think they give your body a chance to equalize after cutting. Then jumping back into a caloric deficit seems to yield me better results.

    Might shoot for 165 and then reverse diet a bit to get my metabolism sorted and running again so fat re-gain isn't a problem. Overall feeling good and glad this cut has been successful.

    The weight seems to go down faster than the fat leaves my body, but oh well I may just have to lose a bit more than I thought. As long as I don't go below 100kg/220lbs I'm happy.

    Notes

    7.2 lbs to lose in 2 week remaining.
    3.6 lbs to lose per week needed to reach goal on time.

    1.
    This was a good dry weigh-in.
    I'm 199.2 lbs, between 13.7% and 14.7% body fat.
    It's possible I'm at 170 lbs lean, not 172 lbs lean.
    That would still be a fantastic year of gains, 8 lbs gained of lean muscle.
    However, it would mean I would need to get to 188.8 lbs to get to 10% body fat, extending my cut into the summer.
    I'm fine with that.

    I'm surprised I lost any weight since I was eating well above maintenance during my travel for a wedding.

    2.
    With 2 weeks to go, I can realistically make it to somewhere between 195.2 lbs (11.9%-12.9%) and 197.2 lbs (12.7%-13.7%).

    My original goal starting back in January was to get to 175 pounds from 190 (I am 5'10 by the way). Then my goal was 170, then 168. I am at 168 now. Right now I am gunning for 165. I think the lowest I might want to go is 160 lbs. That will take months since it is becoming harder to lose weight and each pound takes much more time now.

    Back in December I had high cholesterol and was knocking on pre-diabetes status. After losing that weight all of my blood lipids are normal and my fasting blood glucose is in the non-diabetic category.

    These threads have been a big help.

    Cheated a bit this last week, especially during my birthday, and it shows. Will have to be more strict this week.

    Notes

    7.4 lbs to lose in 1 week remaining.

    1.
    This was not a dry weigh-in.
    I'm 199.4 lbs, between 13.7% and 14.7% body fat.
    It's possible I'm at 170 lbs lean, not 172 lbs lean.
    That would still be a fantastic year of gains, 8 lbs gained of lean muscle.
    However, it would mean I would need to get to 188.8 lbs to get to 10% body fat, extending my cut into the summer.
    I'm fine with that.
    As it looks now, I will continue my cut into the summer because it will take me weeks to cut down on this last bit of fat.
    I'm looking at extending my cut an additional 10 to 12 weeks to make sure I can finish dry and lean.

    2.
    With 1 week to go, I can realistically make it to somewhere between 197.4 lbs (12.9%-13.8%) and 198.4 lbs (13.3%-14.3%).
