As you all know I set out about 6 weeks ago to lose some fat I packed on during my bulking cycle. I initially wanted to get down to about 122-124lbs.
As of today I am 128lbs and I think this is where I'm going to stay.
This is what I look like today:
And this, if you don't remember (or can't see a difference? lol) is what I looked like a month ago:
And I managed to take a decent side-shot pic today! Check it out, this is what I currently look like in profile:
So yes, I do still have a little fat in the lower quadrants of my abdomen. No, you can't see my abs. But here's the thing: this weight is going to be incredibly easy for me to maintain. (And...um...winning: I'm a size 4 at 10lbs more than I was a size 4 at last summer.) I'm not competing. I don't want to be a fitness model. I look good. I'm healthy. That's all I need or want.
Starting next week I'm going to be tapering my calories back up to maintenance (2,200 a day! Yeah baby!) at a rate of 100 calories/week. (This prevents bloating and allows your body to adapt.)
So yeah, that's where I'm at. I hope I haven't horribly disappointed anyone by not getting ALL the way down to my goal ;-) (That's a joke guys. I know y'all are awesome!)
