More temptations; Down to 195 pounds; Monthly pictures to be delayed?

Lisa and I relaxed and watched movies all day yesterday, which of course involved massive quantities of delicious snacks and treats…for Lisa. Yes, yesterday was another day full of dietary temptations and unbelievable cravings. The growls in my stomach were almost as loud as the crunching noises coming from my left as Lisa chowed down to her heart’s content in all her ectomorphic glory. I kept grabbing the bowl of snack mix and inhaling deeply, imagining that I was eating it. Yeah, things are getting a little weird. At one point I grabbed two snack crackers from the bowl; Lisa’s jaw fell open in amazement! Her astonishment melted into a smirk as I tossed a cracker to each of our dogs.

My “treat” came this morning: I’m down to a new 2007 cutting low 195 pounds, and looking extremely lean! My trouble area just below my belly button is much less pronounced now, and the fat in my love handle area is nearly 100% gone. It’s amazing how much difference another 4 or 5 pounds of fat loss make once you are below 8% body fat.

So I’m kind of playing around with the idea of making a break from my normal protocol this month. Normally I would be taking my monthly pictures this coming Friday morning, but I may wait until I hit my goal of 6% body fat to take my June pictures. I don’t think it will be more than a week (give or take a few days) from June 1st until I reach my goal, and I’d like to have a set of monthly progress photos at 6% (by July 1st I will surely have crept back up to 7% or so due to my somewhat relaxed summer diet). Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’m going to do this…
