Since i started 5 weeks ago i'm down exactaly 3lbs. Certainly not a rate of loss to brag about, but enough that i'm pleased. Thats about a 1.5% reduction in bodyfat %, putting me just out of the teens according to my scale at home.
I've suffered no loss of strength due to my training meathods. Well.. only a slight loss. i've been neglecting my pulls, and as such a set of 10-12 is exceptionaly hard. gotta remember to work with them.
Well still a long way off from my welter-weight goal, I think i'm finaly moving in the right direction. Obviously i'll never have a walking weight in that class, but should I ever get into anything competitive I should be able to cut to it.
