According to this, my body fat has gone up and my overall weight is about the same. I know this isn’t true down to my own monitoring with skin fold callipers, a measuring tape and a mirror. I have lost an inch on my stomach and I can see slight positive changes around my stomach, granted it’s only very slightly, but it’s in the right direction.
The body weight not dropping could be down to hydration, clothing, muscle gained and all manners of other things. I really don’t care about my overall weight, I care about my fat percentage. I would be happy with a body weight of 20 stone and 10% body fat, weight is not what I want to lose, it’s the fat.
I will continue what I am doing now and completely re-asses everything March 1st. I will rework all my figures to make sure my macro break down is correct for what I want to achieve. Personally I feel that I am on the right track with a nice steady fat loss. It’s far to early to tell from just 3 weeks of changing things around, 5 weeks will give me a better idea of where I’m going. I can go on a very low carb and fat intake with more cardio at the end of april if need be, but I need to realise what my goal is…
My goal is to look my best for May. I also need to feel alive and strong though. If it’s me losing fat and feeling ill due to my diet, that would be absolutely pointless! This is to test my discipline levels, my knowledge on food, training and so on.
I will get to where I want to be for May! I just need to keep it steady and concentrate on how I need to do it. I hope to surprise myself with the effort I will put into reaching my goal.
I genuinely believe that if I can reach my target for May, I can achieve anything with my body that I set out to do. If I fail down to my own lack of discipline, I then know this isn’t for me. That will not happen though!!! – I want to do it, it would be different if I had to do it because someone forced me in to it.

During typing this up I decided to do my body fat test a different way. I have tried another way and my body fat comes out at 16-17%. I can see that I have been trying to find ways of making excuses up for my body fat to make it lower than my previous week. I need to stop doing this and focus on where I really want to be and not lying to myself about it. It takes time and I know that. I need to just focus…
I know I’m on the right track…
