Just wanted to share my progress over the last 6 months. I have done a number of different things to get where I am today, but I am down from 172 lbs to 146 lbs.
Based on the pictures, you can also see that my fat % is much lower, and I have gained muscle as well in this transition.
I have recently gotten a DEXA scan so I know exactly what my Fat % is (and interestingly, exactly where it is), and my goal over the next few months is to keep lowering my Fat %, and increasing my lean muscle mass. Looking forward to another set of 6 month progress pictures next May/June.
