My weekly body fat test and tape measurements – usually done on Sunday morning – were delayed until today because Lisa has been out of town and I require her assistance for the 7-site body fat test.

My fat loss progress this past week was quite good! I’m down another 1.6 pounds (203.3 pounds), and I lost another quarter of an inch from my waist, my hips, my chest and my thighs. My arms, calves and forearms remained the same.

My body fat percentage this week (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall) is down to 9.3%. Every week is bringing me a little closer to my goal of 6% body fat, and that’s all I can ask for. I’m very happy with how things are progressing with this year’s cutting phase.

The amount of email I’ve received over the past few weeks is insane. I haven’t even had time to read it all (but I will, I promise!) If I were to spend every waking hour for the next month answering emails, I might make a decent-sized dent. Unfortunately there’s absolutely no way I can do that, and that just kills me because most of the emails are absolutely awesome. Many of you are asking me very basic questions (nothing wrong with that – we all have to start somewhere) about how to get started losing weight and working out. Most of your questions are answered on this site and on the the forum. Start educating yourself by reading the “sticky” threads in the Beginner’s forum (the threads that are “stuck” at the very top). You may also enjoy my own detailed food logs, my training routines, my FAQ, and the daily news archives. I encourage you to create a free account on the forum and introduce yourself, or ask any questions you may have. There are plenty of resources and assistance available to you, but you’re going to have to invest a little time and effort into getting the ball rolling. You can do it!
