Day 28: You gotta be patient [The Weigh-In update #3]

WEEKLY WEIGH IN

Short update on my progression, both my diet and workout is going as planned. I’ve just recently gotten used to the quantity of food regarding my  diet plan, my first instinct was that I’m eating too much. But hey, the numbers don’t lie, you just gotta go with the flow, I guess. A few minor updates on this post, I rearranged the weekly measurements so that the latest results are at the top and grouped the weekly pictures. I’ll be sure to add some additional graphs and tables later. This is a great way to visualize progression and even plan future development.

“Be patient, if you don’t see any results on the mirror or scale, be sure to check your measurements. The tape measurements rarely lie to you. “

I measured my body fat the previous weekend, I’ve gone from a 13.64 % to a 12.41 %. I’m not so certain if this is a lot, and this is of course relative to MY body composition and not an obese fat american (no offence America). But let’s say for now that I did a good (tap on the shoulder). I won’t be changing anything regarding my diet since it feels like I just started doing it seriously, so I’ll stick with it until next fattie check up. Anyways, here are some stats and pictures for you guys:

Week 5

Week 5 – Feel actually leaner and the diet is going smoothly.

Week 3, about 3 kg lighter. Not much different, but that's ok.

Week 1. Still a few premium versions out there to unlock the stars.

The numbers in the parenthesis is compared with the previous week/time of the measurements. Green means a good change, red less good (not a certainly a bad thing) and yellow is unchanged

    • Thank you cousin! Don’t worry I’ve very careful with that, there is two ways of checking this:

      1) Use the scale and caliper test (fattie test) to check if you’ve lost fat or “anything else”. What this means is that you get your fat percentage and all other shit in your body, which includes, water, bones, muscles and so on. As long as this isn’t dropping your doing it right.

      2) Checking your strength gains, I’m in my third workout cycle and I’ve only increased my weights, so this is an indication that I’m not getting weaker, hence, not “losing” muscles.

      How is it going for you, cuz?

  1. I don’t know if your tightening your muscle or something. But if not then your muscles look a lot more defined in the week 5 pictures. Specially the top left one (from the front). Abs starting to show, good progress I guess 🙂

    Also it is nice to see that your bed is consistently looking messed up each week. Thumbs up!

    • None of the pictures are when I’m flexing, so yeah it’s progressing slowly =). However I didn’t think of the lighting when I started this, In my case I used sunlight, which will get problematic later. The shadows can be a bit misleading sometimes but since I’ve checked my fat % and measurements, scale AND weight gains, I have some data that indicates that I’m moving forward.

      HENCE working that degree =)
