    Keep it up fellas. I'm cruising along. Haven't weighed in in awhile.

    Body fat looks much lower than a month ago. Just gotta keep going. Progress pics are really showing a huge difference! Don't even really look fat anymore.

    Sweet!

    Weight is average of morning weights over Sunday-Saturday over the dates listed. BF% is measured on Sunday morning, the first date listed (though ideally it would be Wednesday, in the middle of the weight average).

    Week 1's Average Weight/BF%: 169.2 lbs || 18.5% (8/28-9/03)
    Week 2's Average Weight/BF%: 168.3 lbs || 18.1% (9/04-9/11)
    Week 3's Average Weight/BF%: 167.8 lbs || 17.5% (9/12-9/17)*
    Week 4's Average Weight/BF%: 168.9 lbs || 17.4% (9/18-9/24)
    Week 5's Average Weight/BF%: 168.3 lbs || 17.0% (9/25-10/01)
    Week 6's Average Weight/BF%: 167.8 lbs || 17.3% (10/02-10/08)**
    Week 7's Average Weight/BF%: 167.1 lbs || 16.7% (10/09-10/16)**
    Week 8's Average Weight/BF%: 166.2 lbs || 17.5% (10/17-10/22)**
    Week 9's Average Weight/BF%: 164.8 lbs || 16.8% (10/23-10/30)

    Total loss so far: 4.4 lbs total, 3.6 lbs fat. Slow but steady? Sigh.

    *N=1 for the average weight since I was on travel much of this week.
    **Fell off a very rickety wagon here.

    I know not everybody is on the same goal date, but who has a final weigh in soon?

    I had a final total of just a smidge under 8 pounds lost for my goal date. As of this morning I am up a little over a pound from the start of this challenge. I am carrying a lot of water weight right now, though...

    How about everybody else?

    I lost 5 lbs. Embarrassing. Worst part? I absolutely busted my ass and put in some serious work.

    I was down to 163.8 lbs last week, for a net of about -5.4 lbs. If I recall my mathematics correctly, 5.4 < 20. But, I'm at 15.8% bf, which is tying my record low in July 2008.

    It's not horrible, not necessarily bad ... I'm moving in the right direction, just not as quickly as I'd like to be.

    Alright fellas, good effort. I've changed things up lately.. eating more as well as switching up my program to 5x5 Stronglifts.

    I'm migrating over to the Feb 1st challenge. 2 months. About 10 lbs for me right now.

    Who's coming with me??? :lol:
