Pre-cut measurements and predictions.

In anticipation of my 100% strict cutting diet that starts tomorrow (no cheat meals, no alcohol and no missed workouts – period), I’ve taken a fresh set of tape measurements, a 7-point body fat caliper reading and my scale weight. I’ve been have a “free” weekend, so these numbers are slightly inflated due to water weight.

My scale weight this morning is 213.8 pounds. I actually wish it were higher because after taking my body fat reading (below), it’s obvious that my slacking has cost me some muscle.

My body fat reading this morning is 14.7% (as measured by the Fat Track PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers). That means I’m presently made up of 31.43 pounds of fat, and 182.37 pounds of lean mass. My body fat goal is 8%, so I need to lose around 45% of my current fat stores. So, with 31.43 pounds of fat I need to lose around 14 pounds to hit my goal. Of course I’ll lose some lean mass along the way (just for starters at least 5 pounds of my current lean mass is water bloat from this weekend’s junk food frenzy), so my actual scale weight loss should be somewhere around 20-23 pounds. I think I’ll reach my goal of 8% body fat in just 10-12 weeks. In other words, my six pack will be looking pretty tight just in time for the end of summer. 😆

My tape measurements (as measured by the MyoTape) can be found on the stats page.

OK, I’ve got more yard work to do this morning (there’s always something to do out there), and this afternoon I’m going to relax and get mentally prepared for the upcoming week. Have a great Sunday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
