It’s been another textbook week of fat loss (down 2 pounds), and my fat loss progress in March was also excellent!

I started off the month of March at 216.4 pounds and roughly 15% body fat. This morning I’m down to 207.2 pounds, and my body fat percentage (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall) is 10.7%! 10.7% is the highest of the three readings that we took this morning (the lowest was 10.1%).

This past week I lost a quarter inch from my waist, a quarter inch from my hips and a quarter inch from my thighs. My arms have dipped below 17.5 inches now (cold/unpumped), so I’ve done what I always do and rounded down to 17.25 inches on my official stats page. I have to admit that seeing my arms below the 17.5 inch mark was a little difficult, but I got over it pretty quickly because it was fat that I lost and not muscle. I know this because my strength is still high, and the vascularity and cuts in my arms are really starting to show. The added cuts and increased vascularity actually make my arms look bigger now than they did a couple of months ago.

So I took my monthly photos this morning. I sure do look smaller this month! The biggest difference is in my legs: my quads are no longer touching! My upper body also looks smaller than last month, but that is largely due to my inconsistent posing (I usually inhale a bit to sort of accentuate my upper body, but did not this morning). My mid-section is showing more definition, but the stubborn fat below my belly button sticks out more than ever. It will definitely be the very last thing to go. My face is looking far leaner, and I’m really happy about that. I hate it when my face looks puffy, and it has for many months. I’m glad that’s behind me!

By the end of April I should somewhere around 200 pounds and 8% body fat. My mid-section should be looking very tight. The trip from 8% to 6% body fat is likely going to take place in May, and should be very interesting.

Tomorrow I start the new “refeed” phase of my cutting diet! This is going to be an all new experience for me, and I’m looking forward to it a great deal. Stay tuned!
