This morning I weighed in at 192.8 pounds, but yesterday my weight was 191.2 pounds. Mastover said to expect weird weight fluctuations at this point, and he was right. I only post my scale weight as a point of interest, and out of habit. It really doesn’t mean much, if anything.

What I am excited about are my tape measurements and my body fat reading. I lost another quarter of an inch from my waist and a quarter of an inch from my hips this past week. My waist measurement is now exactly 30.5 inches, and that is the lowest waist measurement I’ve ever had in my adult life! The last time my waist measured 30.5 inches was all the way back in 2004 when I weighed about 170 pounds.

This morning my body fat reading is 6.5% (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall). After a 6-month journey I’m finally standing on the doorstep of my goal. Next Sunday I’ll be walking through that door…

As I mentioned last Thursday, the final week of my cut (June 24-30) will be spent doing a pre-contest style diet, which is designed to help me shed water, make my muscles look as full as possible and bring out my vascularity. Two weeks from today I’ll take my monthly pictures along with some other photos for posterity. You can bet that I’ll be enjoying a nice cheat meal that evening, too!
