187.2 this morning so nearly a pound off, just water weight as expected.

Felt really good getting back into the high volume lifting again. Was sweating the most I have for a while, which was probably helped by the extra carbs over the weekend tbh Grin

Hopefully another weight drop tomorrow.

186.4 this morning, backs up my theory of the rise being water weight. Still coming off Smiley

Weighed in this morning at 185.2... almost 3lb's down from Monday's weigh in and nearly to the 184lbs I was at before the off track weekend.

Also tried back & bi's with a friend from work this morning, deadlifts at 7:15am are not fun... Cheesy

Been a while again! Weight still coming off.

Down to 179.2 now. Which is around 18lbs lost in around 18 weeks. Currently on a diet break & deload this week as scheduled by my online coach... calories bumped up from 2000 to 2500 and 100g added (up to 300g) and still losing weight Grin

Around 6-7 weeks until Ibiza, so still time to get as close to 170lbs as possible. Happy with what I've lost so far though. Cool

Good progress, mate! It looks like 170lbs is certainly attainable. Smiley

Cheers bud! That's certainly a longer term goal, I think 175lb will probably be my holiday weight, although coach has said this last month or so of cutting will be a little more aggressive, just to try shred as much fat as possible before going away. Smiley

Wow been a while again Grin

So Ibiza was great. Lowest weigh in before going away was 174.2lbs Shocked but the stable average leading up to Ibiza was 175lbs. As expected, I gained some water/fat/weight on holiday. Was all inclusive and zero tracking of macros or calories was done haha. Came back around 179lbs, which wasn't TOO bad I thought for an all inclusive holiday in Ibiza lol

Had a few birthdays the week I came back too, so couldn't really get 100% back on track. Currently sitting at 179.6lbs - 181lbs; keeps fluctuating.

The plan is to cut until I get to around 165-170lbs, or whenever I feel I'm a good level of leanness, so probably until around Christmas time. I thought I've come this far (lost around 20lbs), so why not keep going and actually get lean for the first time. Smiley Then I'll maintain for a bit then go into a nice, slow, long lean bulk and try put on some decent muscle mass with minimal fat. Smiley

Currently on:

2000 calories
P187
C210
F47

In terms of cardio I'm just aiming for 6-8k steps a day. Whether that's through being active during the day, or fast walk on treadmill.

Also purchased some Vitargo from Bulk Powders for an experiment on myself. Sometimes intra workout I'll be lagging a bit; think this is a combination of being on a cut (energy levels lower as expected), but also because I prefer to consume the majority of my calories post workout in the evening, so usually I have my lunch around 12/1pm and then train at 5/6pm, so thinking Vitargo may give me that 'boost' during my workout.

Si (or anyone who's used it before), how much would you recommend for intra workout? I was going to use around 20-25g just to start with, as I don't want to use too much carbs on a drink as I'm on low calories to start with, but I read on the Bulk Powders suggested directions for use, it says "1-1.5g per kg of bodyweight" so would be around 80g of Vitargo for me.

180lb was the average last week, so down around a pound.

Weighed in 179lb over the weekend and again today and that was including a few drinks and a birthday meal/cake. Just proves if you factor these types of things at events into your macros/calories, you can still lose fat. Smiley

Really can't wait to get leaner then into a bulk. Want more food and muscle Cheesy

On the Vitargo, the quoted figure would be more for recovery post-training. I'd say 20-25g would be fine for you intra-workout.

Good to see you're continuing to make noticeable progress!

Cheers mate, tried 20g the other day and seemed to notice a boost later in the sesh but could be placebo.

Thanks mate, slow and steady. Smiley
