It’s “Measurement Sunday”, and it’s been another productive week of fat loss! This week I lost 2.2 pounds of fat and a half inch from my hips and thighs. My waist size is down almost another 1/4 inch. My arms, chest, forearms and calves did not move, and that’s a good thing!

This morning I’m down to 205 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 9.7%! 9.7% is the highest of the three readings that we took this morning (the lowest was 9.6%, so we’re getting very consistent results!)

It feels awesome to be back down below 10% body fat again! Getting from where I am now down to my goal of 6% body fat is going to be the most challenging part of my cut, so I can’t let up now – and I won’t.

As you’ll see below, there has been a significant change to the front page of this site. For the first time since the inception of JSF back in 2003, my monthly progress photos are no longer featured on the front page. Don’t worry – the monthly, weekly and daily photos are still available in the pictures section of the site. The reason this change was made is because those progress pictures are very unnaturally posed, and are used only as a tool to help track my progress. Unfortunately what I saw happening was people who are new to fat loss, weight training, health and fitness were coming to this site and making some extremely inaccurate assumptions based on those photographs. I felt like prominently featuring those photos was starting to do more harm than good. Instead, I’ve opted to show photos that I feel are a more accurate representations of how I’ve transformed over the years. I hope you’ll agree!

Cardio time. Have a wonderful Sunday and I’ll see you tomorrow!
