Day 61: This post will go unnoticed since everyone’s watching the football match [The Weigh-in #5]

1

Just a few minutes until the kick-off between Sweden vs Portugal, important match since it determines if we’re qualifying to the World Championship in Rio next year. I’m not a big fan of fotball, but when it comes to a match that can bring a whole nation to a stop, it’s hard not to join in. Since my majority of readers are from Sweden, NO ONE will see this update, except my mother (Hey mom, thank you for liking my posts).

So a brief update since the last weigh-in, I got to admit that I was hoping for some increase on my measurements. The ones I’m referring to is my biceps thighs and chest, they haven’t changed much since I started. I’ve gained in strength but not in muscle volume, but again this was not my main goal. Here’s a great example of why it’s helpful to monitor other factors than just your weight; My diet and workout has gone great, however my weight hasn’t moved much since three weeks ago ( 77.7 +/-0.5 kg), and looking in the mirror no bigger change has shown, except maybe the lower abs are starting to show a bit. I went to check my routinely fattie check and it seemed that I’ve lost 1.2 % fat, (that’s almost 1.0 kg fat, shieeet). So, there is more than meets the eye, remember that.

So if I wasn’t clear with this before, don’t put all your focus on the weight scale it will only disappoint you when it’s moving the “wrong” direction.

Nothing new that "pops out" except my uncleaned room. My lower abs are slowly showing as well as my back.

Week 9: Nothing new that “pops out” except my uncleaned room. My lower abs are slowly showing as well as my back.

Week 7:Yeah, I got a haircut, I tend to get a giant head when I let my hair grow, I feel more in proportion now. No real change since last time, except those 2 kg that’s hiding somewhere. Can you spot it?

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 3, about 3 kg lighter. Not much different, but that’s OK. Does anybody see any difference?

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.

  1. What are you talking about, comparing the week 1 pictures with the latest ones there are huge differences. Many things on your body are more defined in the latest ones. Awesome progress.

    You lost about 1.2% fat percentage the first check and the last check, but what happened in the second check? You only lost about 0.4%. Was there a difference in the execution between these checks? Logically it should start off big and stagnate the more you work out. Got any thoughts on this?

    Looking forward to seeing you in person again without a shirt! no homo 🙂

    • I think this was mainly due to the “calibration” to the diet schemes I set up. The first check I dropped considerably a lot and to be honest I think I didn’t eat enough. This can be shown on my weigh in, I went from about 80 kg to roughly 76 kg. So to be sure I didn’t starve myself I ate a bit more than I maybe should (rather be above than under). So that could be the main reason why my second weigh in was a bit off. The latest one I’ve seemed to have found some kind of sweet spot, which is awesome :).

      Hahah! Pick a date and I’ll swing by shirtless!
