Progress not yet Success

As im only half way to my goal I contemplated not putting up this pic yet however after I took the pic this morning I wanted to reflect on my progress so far.

I lost 23lbs and 7% body fat.

My goal is to reach 15% body fat which should be around 180lbs.

So far its taken me 4 -5 months to come this far however I could have got here quicker but I had a few cheeky McDonalds and birthday cake along the way.

Right now im in the Zone and in the next 2 months I will be even more toned and defined.

I'm eating around 1600 - 1700 calories and losing around 2lbs a week but ive hit a plateau along the way. I train 4 - 5 days a week 3 days Circuit/strength training 2 days cardio(Hiit intervals). I go my lunch break so train no longer than 40mins.

I am prepared to maintain for a month or 2 when I hit my goal and then go hard again to try and drop to 10 - 12% body fat.

    This is great and really motivational - I am at a similar loss with a similar routine and also now trying to jump off this plateau and on the slide down again. You are doing so well and look great for it. Keep up the motivation and have your goals in sight!

    Progress is success. Success is progress over time. This is not about perfection, but progress. You're doing just fine :wink:
