    Weekly weigh in update. So I came in at 165 lbs. A 1 pound loss from last week. I have to say I am a bit disappointing with the results, I thought that I would have lost a little bit more. I stuck to my diet 100%, without a cheat meal this past week. Been busy with family, had a new child born last week. So maybe the hectic nature of the week and lack of sleep could have impacted results. Also the veggies I've been eating was cooked in oils, so it may also be impacting. I still am losing weight, albeit slowly. I do feel better. The start however is slower then previous cuts. I'll evaluate next week before making further conclusions. Till next time...

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 167 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 2 - 166 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 9 - 165 lbs.

    Weekly weigh in update: Weighed in at 163.5 lbs. So in 2 weeks I am down 3.5 pounds. Again a little slower loss then expected, but any progress is good progress. Right now I am sticking to the same routine, and won't change anything drastic. I think I'll have to go at least another 4 weeks to hit my goal f 157 lbs. Goal for next week is 1 pound loss. Diet has been pretty easy to follow and I haven't had any major urges for cheat meals. Next update is next week.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 167 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 2 - 166 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 9 - 165 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 16 - 163.5 lbs.

    Weigh in Wednesday update: Weighed in at 163 lbs on the dot today. I have been using different scales week to week so there may be some variance in consistency. I did lose .5 pounds, but was shy of my target of 1 pound. I am slightly disappointed, but all news isn't bad. Visually, I noticed I am looking more lean overall, and my stomach feels like it lose some as my pants are getting looser. I am still targeting my 157 pound goal, I am wondering if over the years though my muscle mass increased, because at 163 lbs a couple of years ago I don't think I look as lean as I do now. I may have to adjust target weight based on BF readings in a few weeks. But I do know I need to do a minimum of 3 more weeks in order for me to get even close to my target. Its longer then I wanted, but 3 weeks is still not too bad.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 167 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 2 - 166 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 9 - 165 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 16 - 163.5 lbs.
    Week 4 - Day 23 - 163 lbs.

    I weighed in today during my weekly weigh in around 162.5, scale was actually hovering between 162/63 but so I'll register it halfway. My scale weight is only down .5 lbs this week. I am glad I lost something, but I expected more. I do see visual differences in my arms, chest and stomach. So I am happy with the visual improvements, but not so happy with the weight. This year has been definitely a slow down in week to week progress. I am sticking to 1 cheat meal a week. But the last 3 cheatmeals in a row for the past 3 weeks were all cheesesteaks. I think going forward, I will cut out the cheesesteaks for the cheats as I think they are hurting my progress, and I tend to retain water from them. Right now I have scheduled 2 weeks left in the cut, and there is no way I will reach 157 in 2 weeks. I will still target 2 weeks and see what scale weight I am at, and BF%. If I feel I need to do 1 more week, then I will make that decision at that time. Next week goal is another 1 pound loss.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 167 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 2 - 166 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 9 - 165 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 16 - 163.5 lbs.
    Week 4 - Day 23 - 163 lbs.
    Week 5 - Day 30 - 162.5 lbs.

    Another update for the week. Weighed in today exactly at the same weight as last week, 162.5 lbs. Disappointing with the scale weight, but I have been happy with the visual improvements this week. Skin seems to be tightening up. This years cut has been very different in terms of progress from what I am used to. I have never been this high of a scale weight this far in the cut. I also visually feel that I have improved a lot. So I checked my BF% today, and it came out to 11.9%. I normally end my cuts hovering around 11%. But that is when I would end at scale weight of 157 lbs. I did some basic calculations, and to get to 11% BF, I would have to lose 2 pounds of fat. So I can safely assume if I hit 160 lbs, I would be at 11%. (2 pounds fat, and .5 pound muscle loss). This indicates to me that I have gained muscle mass in the past year. So I may need to adjust targets in the future to be at scale weight of 160 lbs. at the end of the cut.

    Other differences this year is 1 day a week I do this "boot" camp style workout, which is high intensity, in replacement of my HIIT. I feel like it has been a very high intensity workout, but its different from what I have done in the past. Also my sleep has been disturbed this past month because I just had a new baby, he wakes us up a lot at night, so it effects me sleep. Lastly, the veggies I have been eating have been cooked in oil, versus boiled, so that may have an impact.

    The target for my cut was to end next week, the 14th. I don't think I will be able to successfully reach 11% BF or 160 lbs in a week, but who knows, maybe it will be possible. I will still target next week to end the cut, but may extend a maximum of another week. 2 weeks drop dead date. I am very interested to see how my numbers come out at the end.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 167 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 2 - 166 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 9 - 165 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 16 - 163.5 lbs.
    Week 4 - Day 23 - 163 lbs.
    Week 5 - Day 30 - 162.5 lbs.
    Week 6 - Day 37 - 162.5 lbs.

    Another weekly weigh in today, and came on once again at 162.5. I am still pretty surprised I have been weighing in at the same weight pretty much every week for the last few weeks. Visually, I have improved since last week.
    My stomach, arms have leaned up quite a bit. This year major differences in my cut: I did "boot" camp style cardio 1 day a week, which included kickboxing, sparring, core, jump rope circuit type training. I also ate more "cooked veggies that were cooked in oil. I still overall feel great, but just my scale weight isn't where I wanted to be at. I am going to go another 2 days until Friday, and re-check my weight, and decide from there whether I will continue until next Wednesday or just end this week. I am also going to check my bodyfat percentage and see where I am at. My guess if I want to have any significant losses I will definately have to decrease caloric intake slightly, as what I am doing has been keeping me at the current weight. Also, it was my birthday this past week, and I cheated 1 time during the week in addition to the regular cheat day. Wife wanted to take me out, so I couldn't refuse that.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 167 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 2 - 166 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 9 - 165 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 16 - 163.5 lbs.
    Week 4 - Day 23 - 163 lbs.
    Week 5 - Day 30 - 162.5 lbs.
    Week 6 - Day 37 - 162.5 lbs.
    Week 7 - Day 44 - 162.5 lbs.

    Random update post week 7 weigh in. I weighed in today (Friday) at 161 lbs. I am 50/50 on whether to continue this until next Wednesday. I'll feel it out this weekend, and decide from there. I do feel like I may be losing a little more fat, so I might just stick it out these next couple of days. Target was 160, by next Wednesday, if I continue the cut, I am pretty sure I can get there. I'll post an update next week as the final post of this years cut.

    Hey everyone, so another year has went by and I am so ready for a new cut. It's not 2019 quite yet, but since it's Monday I am starting my cut today. This past year has been overall good, but the 1-2 months I think I ate too many desserts, and pizza, and it showed with my initial weight in at 173 lbs. I was pretty surprised as visually I don't feel like I look that weight. The first year I started doing these cuts, I was at 174 at the starting weight. But now I look a lot better at the same scale weight. I am not saying I am happy with how I look, but definitely I have backed on several pounds of muscle since 2006. This year my target will be 160 lbs even, and I am anticipating the cut to last 8 weeks. This year I am going to cut out sugar in my daily coffee, and try to eat cleaner veggies (not cooked in oil). Cheat meal once a week (Saturdays), and everything else 100% strict. Will do my normal weigh ins every Wednesday.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 173 lbs.

    Just a quick update, I am in day 3 of my cut and today is weigh in Wednesday. I am down 2 lbs, and clocked in at 171 lbs. Of course that is just water weight, so now the real work begins. Mentally feeling good now that I am on my way . Goal for next week is minimum 1 pound loss. To reach my target in 8 weeks however, I need to lose an average of 1.5 lbs a weekly.

    So today is weigh in Wednesday. I weighed in at 170 lbs, which is a 1 lb loss from last week. Overall I am feeling good, and noticing some small differences in the tightness of my chest. It’s only 1 lb. but it met my goal for the week. Next weeks goal is 1 lb., I am pretty confident I will have no problem with that.

    Weigh in Wednesday! So I am happy to report I weighed in a 168 lbs, a 2 lbs drop from last week. I was strict with my diet, with my standard planned cheat meal on the weekend. I am overall happy with my visual progress, my stomach is feeling slimmer and I have leaned up a bit in the chest area. I do have to average 1.4 lbs loss per week in order to meet my target, so this helps up the average, as I know there may be a week or 2 where I may plateau. Goal for next week is a 1 lb loss. I do feel good but I know I have some work to do to be where I want to be.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 173 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 3 - 171 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 10 - 170 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 17 - 168 lbs.

    So here's my weekly weigh in update. Unfortunately today I weighed in at the same weight as last week, no change at 168 lbs. I had a feeling that I might not see any progress as I didn't feel any significant change in my weight. I did do one cheat meal this week as usual. The plan for the upcoming week is to train harder with the cardio, and have more steamed vegetables versus cooked with oil. Looking at previous cuts however, I do tend to plateau around the 3 week mark, so nothing to be terribly alarmed about. I will just stick to this plan and have a goal of a 2 lbs loss for next week. Right now my estimated remaining cut is 5 weeks, which means I need to lose 1.6 lbs a week in order to reach the target. This year I also will be checking my body fat percentage when I reach the low 160's to see really where I am at in terms of bf percentage. 11% is really where I would like to end the cut at ideally.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 173 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 3 - 171 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 10 - 170 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 17 - 168 lbs.

    So good news and bad news for my weekly weigh in update. I lost 1 lb from last week, which is the good news. The bad news is I didn't meet my week goal of 2 lbs. I do feel good in terms on how my aesthetics are looking, my arms are leaning up, chest, and stomach slimmed down visually, and I can especially notice when wearing my pants. I do know I still have some ways to go to shed weight off my stomach. I have exactly 4 weeks left in my stomach, and to reach my goal if 160 at this point is going to be very difficult, so I think I might have to adjust my target weight again. I do feel that my body composition is evolving as I age and gain muscle. I am turning 38 next month, and think I need to evolve in terms of my target weight. For the longest time I targeted 157 lbs, then I moved it to 160. Maybe 162 is the "right" weight for me. I'll have to wait and see a couple of weeks to see visually how I look and feel. I still have that bf check that I need to do, but I will wait until about 2-3 more weeks for that. But regardless I am feeling a lot healthier and my overall well being is better, which is a very important part of this whole process. Anyhow, next week the grind is still on, 1 lb target weight loss goal.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 173 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 3 - 171 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 10 - 170 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 17 - 168 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 24 - 168 lbs.
    Week 4 - Day 31 - 167 lbs.

    So some very good news this week. Weighed in today at 163 lbs, which is a solid 4 lbs loss from last week. So that weight loss in a week is unprecedented for me. But here's the catch, on Sunday, I had a terrible stomach bug, and was sick for like 1-2 days, I barely had anything to eat, was just eating a few bananas, soft rice, and Gatorade. But hey, I'll take it. I can definitely tell my waistline has reduced significantly, and I am just feeling overall better as I go through the cut. I have 3 weeks left in the cut, and now that 160 lbs goal seems in reach. I will continue to do what I am doing, eat clean, and workout hard. I do feel it would be good to have those extra couple of pounds shed.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 173 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 3 - 171 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 10 - 170 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 17 - 168 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 24 - 168 lbs.
    Week 4 - Day 31 - 167 lbs.
    Week 5 - Day 38 - 163 lbs.

    So another weigh in update. I am happy to report another 1 lb loss this week, bringing me down to 162 lbs. Overall I am very happy on how my cut is going. Stomach slimmed down quite a bit and I am just looking leaner overall. I have 2 weeks to go exactly before the 8 week mark (8 weeks and 2 days to be exact). I am hoping these next 2 weeks will get me to that 160 lbs sweet spot. Will continue working hard in the gym and keep a clean diet minus my weekly cheat meal.

    Week 1 - Day 1 - 173 lbs.
    Week 1 - Day 3 - 171 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 10 - 170 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 17 - 168 lbs.

    Week 4 - Day 31 - 167 lbs.
    Week 5 - Day 38 - 163 lbs.
    Week 6 - Day 45 - 162 lbs.

    So a suprising weigh in this week at 163 lbs, which is a 1 lb increase actually from last week. I don't think that has ever happened to me before (except 1 time where I did a cheat meal like a day or 2 before). Only explanation I have is I may be retaining some water weight. I did only 1 cheat meal this week as usual on Saturday. I did start also adding a little bit of sugar in my daily coffee, so that COULD have contributed as well. Nevertheless, I am very pleased still how I look visually. I do think a little slimming down in the waist is still possible. I have 1 more week left in the cut, and I'll be happy with whatever the final weigh in is. Ideally 160, but I think realistically I could fall at 161 lbs. .

    So my final weigh today, which is day 59 of my cut. I weighed in today at 161 lbs exactly. My target was 160, so I came very close. I think i'll probably still eat clean until the end of the week and then weigh myself again. 12 lbs of weight loss, I am very happy with this years cut. I feel much better, my stomach feels better, and visually look much better. I think a few more pounds from my stomach could be shed, but I think in the next 1-2 weeks as my skin adjusts I should continue to see visual improvements. I really enjoyed this years cut even though it was 8 weeks, it didn't feel like a burden. I am going to work on continuing to eat clean during the week, and relax the diet during the weekends. My hope is I won't get to the low 170's again for next years cut, I was disappointing in starting that high this year. Anyhow signing off for now, have a great year!

    Hey all! A year has went by and a few interesting things have occurred. So you might notice it is Feb, and not Jan (when I typically start by annual cut). So Dec 30th, while playing soccer, I partially tore some ligaments in my foot, and was in a boot all of January. I didn't do any exercise at all last month. So I pushed my cut to after it got off, which was end of last week. Monday (2/3) was the first day of the cut. I weighed myself yesterday, and came in at 165. Not too bad at all to start off. I did do a cut back in September, and I ate relateively clean throughout the winter, and played in soccer leagues over the past year. That definately helped me keep off any extra weight. Last year I started at least a solid 5 pounds heavier. My goal is to do a 4 week cut, and end the first week of March. I am still also doing PT to get my ankle back and fully healed, so my cardio will be limited to elyptical for now.

    Week 1 - Day 3 - 165 lbs.

    A little late of an update, but I did do my weekly weigh in on Wednesday, and surprisingly came in at 162 lbs. To be honest I had no idea I would have lost that much in a week, I am thinking at least some of it was water weight. I am not complaining, but this isn't typical of me. I also have been slightly sick and dehydrated, so wondering if that has anything to do with it. Anyhow, I am continuing with rehab for my ankle and am continuing elliptical right now 3 days a week. Goal for next week will be a 1 lb weight loss, which I think is very achievable. Feeling my stomach fat is a bit loose right now, so thinking this is ready to go by next week. Weekly cheat meals are still every Saturday. Feeling pretty good about the diet so far, I don't see it going farther than first week of March at this pace.

    Weekly weigh in update. Came in exactly at the same weight as last week at 162 lbs. Only difference this week with my weigh is that I did it after eating lunch, which may have had a very slight impact, but I am not banking on it. I am still relatively satisfied on how the cut is going, I am overall down to a good weight, stomach fat is getting reduced, and I feel pretty good. 2 more weeks and I am going to wrap up this mini cut, so whatever I get down to, I'll be happy with. It's possible I can get down to 160, but lets see. Till next week.

    Week 1 - Day 3 - 165 lbs.
    Week 2 - Day 10 - 162 lbs.
    Week 3 - Day 17 - 162 lbs.
