November update!

Somewhere around my 12th week now! Still exercising daily. Have been dipping above and below 230 lbs and above and below 20% BF for the last week or so, hopefully I start to break through as the week progresses (my cheat day is Sunday).

Starting weight: 279 lbs

Current weight: 229 lbs

Starting BF: 37%

Current BF: 20%


Keep up the good fight my slow carbers!

p.s. I've started swimming laps and doing some water aerobics. Big change! I feel less tired and sore after I go to the gym. I am a great swimmer but I can't swim straight laps despite Tim's suggestions, so I just do a strenuous side stroke.

Congratulations man!!!

20% BF?!?!?! AMAZING!!!! And in such a short period...

Right now I am at 27%BF... it's a very strange place, because I can see the BF decreasing but the scale keeps showing some gain... it's a mixed feeling for me!

    Focus on how you look. People don't gaze at you and see a number, right?

Very great man! I'm on my second week not seeing any weight lost yet but I haven't done any exercise either, I use to go swimming, I will follow as you did it! Thanks for sharing this!

    By week 12 it will be so routine you'll be disgusted by the memories of how you used to eat. Also you'll be disgusted by eating the way you used to eat, I have more and more trouble eating cheat meals every weak. Don't forget to drink a lot of water before doing anything strenuous in the pool, sometimes it's hard to know when you need it even though you're swimming in it.

    Thanks man, on week 3 now, I have been drinking a lot of water, probably more than 4 L per day. One interesting thing is that I have felt that my jeans are starting to feel more loose ;) and I have lost 1 kilo weight. Getting exited!
