    I had a difficult weekend where I was sick likely from artificial sweetener. I am re-focusing on keeping my food real. I'm also focusing on keeping my protein from getting too high.

    I'm planning to attempt an extended fast starting after dinner tonight to continue to address my insulin resistance.

    Oh right, it is Wednesday. Well, since I've not posted this anywhere previously, I'll start here.

    6/22- 155.1
    6/29- 152.3

    Still dropping faster than I'd like, even after pushing the kcals up to 1700 per day, and having a couple of notably higher days during food prep.

    6/29 - 152.3
    7/6 - 151.2

    Going to let it ride for one more week and adjust to slow down as needed.

    7/6 - 151.2
    7/13 - 151.9

    About what I was hoping to see this week, though well within a margin of error either way. Going to see how the trend runs over the next two months, making slight adjustments every couple of weeks.

    7/13 - 151.9
    7/20 - 151.5

    Getting pretty static, and I'm seeing about what I would expect. Going to hold this caloric level (1700) for another couple of weeks and see how it runs.

    7/20 - 151.5
    7/27 - 151.2

    Still running well within the expected range, and seeing extremely low variance during daily weigh-ins.

    7/27 - 151.2
    8/3 - 150.1

    Welp, time to average and adjust upward.

    8/3 - 150.1
    8/10 - 154.0

    Going from completely sedentary to lifting six times per week, and being more active outside of that than I have ever been, is definitely having a clear impact on weight fluctuation. Feels good though. Looking forward to seeing how the upward trend actually runs, now that I am running a surplus.

    8/10 - 154.0
    8/17 - 155.4

    Seen all manner of weight fluctuation over this past week, from a high of 158.4 (yesterday), to a low of 152.9. It doesn't surprise me, given the change from doing nothing, to lifting (or some form of resistance training) every day for the last week and a half or so. Already starting to notice a lot of musculature being brought back to life, from it's previously unused state. Going to run for another couple of weeks before I bother photo updating my bulk thread though.

    8/17 - 155.4
    8/24 - 158.5

    Continuing with the pretty rapid fluctuations and swings, though I am seeing a defined upward trend. Going for a couple of more weeks before tinkering with anything. Lifts are up, measurements are acceptable, and calipers haven't changed much. I'll take it, for now.

    8/24 - 158.5
    8/31 - 158.1

    Weight has started to stabilize a bit. I should be able to get a better grasp on things from here forward. Still going to mostly be watching the tape, calipers, and my emerging abdominals.

    8/31 - 158.1
    9/7 - 162.5

    Weight has stabilized at this exact point for the last few days, after a pretty strong falloff following my last refeed. This is likely the set point where I can finally start judging how intake is affecting weight, while also watching composition via tape and calipers.

    9/7- 162.5
    9/14- 167.5

    You never realize just how much water you put away, until a gallon only makes your shakes and PWOs for the day, and you still have a half-gallon of Coke Zero involved.

    9/14 - 167.5
    9/21 - 168.7

    Had to make some adjustments, and temper the intake. Putting in way more fat than I am comfortable with, given the rate of muscular accumulation.

    9/21 - 168.7
    9/28 - 170.6

    9/28 - 170.6
    10/5 - 170.0

    10/5 - 170.0
    10/12 - 171.1

    I'm honestly shocked that it's only that much higher, given that I pushed my refeed back by two days this week. Usually takes at least five days for all of the pickup from that to go away.

    10/12 - 171.1
    10/19 - 170.9

    10/19 - 170.9
    10/26 - 166.2

    Well, that escalated quickly.

    10/26 - 166.2
    11/2 - 163.4

    Dat dere RFL. Think I'll end the cut as soon as I break back into the 150s, and the waist hits 32. That's clearly going to happen before my planned six week run is up, at this rate (I'm only halfway through week three).

    11/2 - 163.2
    11/9 - 164.5

    Still trending downward overall, though there was some obvious pullback after switching off RFL for a two week break. Following Lyle's macro recommendations of 100g c/208g p/46g fat for the duration of the break.

    I do find it amusing though, that this still qualifies as low-carb, but I am feeling waaaaay over on them. Used to that keto still.

    11/9 - 164.5
    11/16 - 163.8

    Not bad for a week at maintenance -10% followed up with a few days of standard maintenance. Going to ride this train until after Thanksgiving then get back on dat dere RFL before starting another bulk...a leaner one this time. *kitten* fulking; I hate getting squishy.

    11/16 - 163.8
    11/23 - 162.9

    Back on dat RFL after a 600+g carb refeed this past weekend.

    I'm really hoping to get back to 130-131 so I have some wiggle room. I seem to hang out a lot in the 134-136 range (and yes, it does make a difference in clothing fit, crazy as it sounds, since any extra weight goes straight to my belly).

    If I make it to goal that will be 15 lbs lost this year - which is my goal for the year, so far I have been mostly on target month to month...I love it when a plan comes together...

    I always reset my weight at the beginning of the year, so make it or miss it, I need to set new goals for 2017...I'm kind of leaning toward a 6lb loss for 2017, but I have a month still to really decide...

    Goal range for maintenance: 130-133
    Blah. I spend a ridiculous amount of time just above that range. I really should probably just focus on recomp now rather than caring about 1-3 lbs. And how is it possible some of my pants are tight when I'm only 1.4 lbs above maintenance? (I've been bloated lately and not sure why.)
