    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.

    11/23 - 162.9
    11/30 - 172.0

    1000g carb refeed on Monday. Feels good at the moment, but I know I'll be back to sub-170 within a couple of days. Glycogen supercomps don't last long.

    11/30 - 172.0
    12/8 - 168.7

    After ending up with a bout of deydration/sodium overdose/potassium deficiency induced water retention that saw me climb to 177, and look like Damon Wayans in The Great White Hype, it looks like I've finally got everything purged and starting to settle back in line.

    12/8 - 168.7
    12/14 - 168.6

    Doing some maintenance seeking, then easing my way into a winter bulk. I've drastically increased my conditioning work for this bulk, so I'm hoping to end up in the 3500 kcal/day range to lean bulk. Nothing prevents seasonal affective disorder quite like lifting heavy *kitten*, hill sprints, and eating all the things.

    12/14- 168.6
    12/21- 169.1

    Dead on in line with what I am aiming for. Since recalibrating my intake, I'm eating an average of 3100 kcal/day to gain 0.5-1 lbs./week. For those of you who may remember my keto bulk thread, I gained 2.5 lbs./week on a 2800/day average and got fat as *kitten*. Therefore, this current setup amuses me.

    12/21- 169.1
    12/28- 170.4

    It took a 6000 kcal day on Christmas just to get my average gain up closer to where it should be.

    12/28- 170.4
    1/4- 169.3

    Starting to get mildly annoyed at how slow this bulk is running. Up to 3450 per day, and only averaging 0.4 lbs. per week. Gotta step my game up, or I won't be anywhere near my goal at winter's end.

    1/4- 169.3
    1/11- 172.2

    My moving average is still bleh, but things are creeping up slowly as I increase the kcals. Up to nearly 4000/day, and still only at 0.6 lbs./week gain.

    1/11- 172.2
    1/18- 175.5

    Still waterlogged from an overfeed last Saturday. Will be interested to see what I need to do in order to avoid it in the future. I know what my problem is, but how to dance the thin line with water intake will be key.

    Highest weight: 161
    Keto SW: 151
    CW: 133
    Goal range for maintenance: 130-133

    My DietBet goal puts me at 132.5, though that's with clothes on :tongue so I'll have to hit more like 131.5. I really do want to get to 130-131 though instead of being right at the top of goal range w/no wiggle room. (3 lbs is maybe too narrow of a range, but I know 133 is my upper limit unless I actually gain muscle. Maybe I should say 128-133.)

    I am almost there... Which in itself is daunting because I am looking at maintenance. Maintenence plan is all set out, will just be odd to increase carbs (happy to increase calories though!)...

    I am 5'10" and small build so am happy with where I am. I do need to check my body fat as I was 33% at my SW and want to see how much it has gone down!

    Gain has stabilized since getting rid of most of the water. My average is still skewed by it, but showing 0.7/week, which is about where I expected.

    January 25 CW 146,
    no change from last week. Still very happy. 7 pounds lost so far this month.
    Still, I was very careful to stay in my carb range. I don't understand why I didn't lose a little bit. I have added exercise this past week. Any thoughts?

    Adding exercise will cause your body to retain water for muscle repair. It should taper off after 2-3 days.

    Thank you ccdragon! I didn't know this. I haven't been able to exercise in over 2 years because of back pain. :'( Feeling much better now, so this is very good to know. :p

    1 Jan: 137.6lbs

    18 Jan: 134.8lbs


    Today: 134.8lbs

    I said I was going to maintain for a while, here it is. Surprising, as I've had a terribly stressful week and turned to carbs twice (family member at end of life :'( ). It will get worse before it gets better (the end) for her, so it's important to work through the acceptance of this situation.

    I'm not even worried about my indulgences at all, as it doesn't even matter compared to the events unfolding. I will stay steady and remember to nourish my body the best I can to remain strong for the family.
