Day 184-2 (M, 120702) — Another Low

The Results.  Almost inexplicably, my current habits (good during the week, some Free Meals on the weekend) seem to be working.  This is my second week in a row with a decades-long low.

Date Weight BF% BF #
Δ from start -35.8 -6.3 -22.9
Δ from Last -1.3 -0.3 -0.9
Week 27-2: 120630 192.7 23.4 45.0
Week 26-2: 120623 194.0 23.7 45.9
Week 0: 110101 228.5 29.7 67.9

I think I’ll probably faint the day I see a number starting with 18.  I wonder how long this can continue. . . .

Still Re-examining my Goals.  I didn’t get much feedback last week on my comments about adjusting my longtime weight goal of 185 pounds.  I know commenting can be a chore, but if anyone out there has some thoughts on the subject, I’d appreciate any help you might have to offer.

Food Tracking.  My nutrition totals for the past week:

Calories Fat Net Carbs Protein
Su 24-Jun 3305 185 275 135

Avg (last wk)
1966.4 105.4 82.4 130.9
-159.9 -6.7 +23.9 -24.3

I’m not sure how this is working, but it is.  I’ll take it and run, so to speak.

  1. One issue regarding your question about the 185lb goal and if you have to get to 160 in order to be at 17%bf is that you are looking a linear decline in weight and trying to equate that to a percentage decrese in body fat.

    At 192.7lb/23.4%, you have 147.6lb of lean body mass. If you reverse the equations for 17% bodyfat, and assuming you aren’t losing lean body mass, you would only need to get down to 177.8lbs to be at 17%. To get down to really seeing your abs which on most men is going to require 10% bodyfat, you would need to maintain your lean body mass and get down to 164lbs.

    The bottom line is that 148lbs of lean body mass isn’t much.
