Measurement Sunday.

It’s measurement Sunday, and it’s been a pretty good week!

This morning I’m down to a 2007 cutting low of 194.6 pounds. That’s about 1 pound of fat loss for the week, and good progress at this late stage of the cut. As I draw closer to the 6% mark, fat loss is expected to slow.

I lost a quarter of an inch from my waist and a quarter of an inch from my hips this past week. All other measurements remained the same. My waist size is just below 31 inches now, and is about the only area on my body where I’m still carrying an appreciable amount of fat. I think over the next few weeks my waist measurement will be the only measurement that will change significantly. The lowest waist measurement I ever had was 30.5 inches back in 2004. I wonder if I’ll match it or beat it by the end of my cut?

This morning my body fat reading was exactly the same as it was last week: 7.4% (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall).

I’m not concerned about the body fat reading not changing this week. If anything it just shows that my measurements are consistent. The only pinch area that was reduced was my abdominal pinch, and that was just by 1mm. Even though I lost a quarter inch from around my waist, that didn’t really translate to much of a reduced caliper pinch.

Well, I’m late for my cardio so I’d better close this out. Thanks for stopping by – have a great Sunday!
