My latest set of progress photos are up! I’m very happy with how things are coming along. I definitely look smaller all around, but that’s a good thing because I’m losing fat and not muscle. This past month I lost 7 pounds, for a grand total of 19.6 pounds since January 1st. when I started cutting on January 1st I was around 14% body fat, and in February I reduced my body fat from around 12% to roughly 10.5%. I lost almost 1.5 inches from my waist in February, bringing my total waist size reduction to just shy of 3 inches since I started cutting.

March should be a very “dramatic” month, because the bulk of my remaining fat is around my mid-section and legs. By the end of March I should be at, or close to, 8% body fat; my abs should be quite defined, and my quads should be showing some separation. As I move from 8% body fat down to 6% in April and May, my physique will take on a very lean and vascular appearance. Because I’ve never cut down to that body fat level with any appreciable muscle on my frame, this will be uncharted territory for me. I’m very excited to see how I’ll look at 6% body fat because I’ve added around 40 pounds of muscle since the last time I was at 6% (back in 2003).

Yesterday I mentioned my dog Turtle’s spinal surgery, and I’d like to offer my most sincere thanks to all the wonderful people who took the time to email me, PM me or post on the forums. Your positive energy could be felt, and it really helped. I’m a huge animal lover – always have been – and my dogs are like my kids. The past few weeks have been very difficult for me, Lisa, Loki and, of course, Turtle. I posted a follow-up yesterday afternoon in this thread (scroll down a bit), along with some pictures of poor Turtle that I took when we visited her at the hospital yesterday. The good news is the doctors are all stunned by her incredible recovery, and unless I hear differently I get to bring her home this morning! 🙂
