    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 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.

    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.
