  3. I'm waiting to see the next weigh in!

  4. Next weigh in should be Day 19. I have to quit getting on the scale everyday because I am up and down, up and down. I am sure its all in water weight but I keep centering new weights so I know I am going down.

    Hopefully my laptop will be fixed Monday so I can get back to the detailed logs. You would think an IBM T41 could work with no issues after being dropped 5ft on the concrete... : )

    Hey great progress so far and the detail of the log has been top notch. I am real excited to see your progress!! I am hoping you see substantial weight loss while maintaining muscle mass or gaining some!!! I know you have been asking for some additional sup advice here are my two cents:

    weight loss supp that would stack well: Dicana or a sesamin based product.. both stack great with leviathan

    muscle builder that wont add fat and allow you to train loger and harder: I would go with either a bulk Beta-alanine sup or you could use Incarnate. We have had a ton of people cutting who use Incarnate with Leviathan and get great results.

    Just my two cents on the supps..I would like to see some other people opinions as well!!!

    I left this info out for today so far because my wife has not decided what we are having yet. : )

    DP
    yup, I figured


    Def. want to try as best you can eliminating that potato out of any meal past say,,,5pm --- that is if your really wanting to get serious about losing weight/fat....just food for thought my friend!

  7. btw, those pics look great man..I can DEF see a difference.

    Will do. I much rather have the weight/fat loss than the few minutes of Potato pleasure. Got on the scale this morning and I am back to 257... Whats the deal??

    DP

  9. Think about it... if you have an extra few glasses of water, or you are retaining water or a big meal... you will weigh more.
    Just be patient and dont judge weight loss by a scale necessarily.
    1 gallon of water = 8lbs
    2 glasses of water = 1lb
    it can all add up quickly.

    judge weight loss by how your clothes feel...


    also...looking at your diet.. you may want to try less or zero carbs after 5pm. Carbs are a main energy source and taking them later at night can be problematic to some people. Its all about figuring out what works for you!

  10. Yeah, what dave said A fluctuation of as much as 3-4 pounds in a 2 day period isn't unrealistic. Its charting the overall loss over a long period of time that is important.

    look at the attached pic. If the red dots are the daily (or weekly) weights, it doesn't matter whether one measurement is up or down from the last, so long as the trend is downwards. That 8 pounds from one gallon of water can be non water based - just to prove that, take 1/4 cup of psyllium husks one night, and drink as much water as you can. The damn things will bloat up your intestinal tract and hold at least 4 pounds of water with it. Rather, don't try this, cause I did by accident, and it sucks, damn cramps all night, it was nasty. But a swing of up to 5 pounds either way isn't crazy (and our scales aren't 100% accurate either)

  11. exactly give it time, you wouldnt beleive how much I fluctuate from day to day....its crazy.....
  12. Day 20 - Leviathan Log (Going by Fast!!)


    I have bitten off more than I can metabolize with a tiling job at home. I have ripped up 75 sqft of ceramic tile and am currently working on getting the tile glue up (thinset). This is a workout in its self. Thats why I have a hole in my log from Day 15 to Day 20. But I am continuing to maintain my daily regiment and are still seeing results.

    Yesterday I had to wear my suit and its WAY to big in the waist now. Last time I wore it was a month ago and it was big but not too big. My every day belt has been worn on the last notch for sometime now. I need to send it back to the manufacture to have a few more holes popped in it and maybe some trimmed off the end.

    Anyway here is Day 20, with a new weight included.

  17. Day 26 - Leviathan Log (MAJOR Progress)


    My logs have slacked off do to a large tiling project that I have undertaken at home. I have not been able to hit the gym because of needing to go home at 5pm, working to midnight, to attempt to get it knocked out.

    However, this tiling stuff is not for the meek. Its giving me the workout that I am missing in the gym. Except this is full body, for several hours at a time.

    Regardless, I have been making some SERIOUS progress... I am not going to spoil it today. You have to wait until Day 29, thats right, this Friday.

    BUT I GUARANTEE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!

    I can tell you this!! I weight less now than I did on my last log entry! I do not want to jinx myself but I believe I have pushed thru my plateau with the help of LEVIATHAN from PAL .

    So for DAY 29 I will have:
    • NEW PICS
    • NEW Weight
    • NEW Measurements


    I am looking forward to sharing this with the community and will give some updates between now and then.

    Thanks again for the support!
