Been working overtime at the security job, and the computer business has picked up again. Haven't had much time to log anything. The scale is still going the right direction though. Seems to me I'm loosing weight kinda fast, but strength is up in the gym, so not going to worry about that right yet. Scale said 205 this morning, that was just as I woke up so I'm sure I was a bit dehydrated, but thats a 15 pound drop since the 1st.
Will try to post new pics tomorrow, and will hopefully (finally) get caliper and tape measurements posted.

Ok. I had my fiancee help me take caliper readings. Now, something MUST be wrong. I got the Accu-Measure Fitness 3000 calipers from NP. According to the chart that came with that, I'm at 6.7% body fat. I do NOT believe that. I figgure I'm at least 15%. So, we found a few other sites on the net that can be used with the same calipers. I went to this site: http://www.linear-software.com/online.html and used the Jackson/Pollock 7 Caliper Method. It came up even leaner. Here are the readings we got:
Thigh 1.5mm (I have very lean legs)
Put in my age as 45, and my body weight at 207. It says I'm at 3.99% bodyfat
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I thought calipers were supposed to be pretty accurate, but I don't think so anymore.

Oh. Here's the tape measurements:
Around the love handles: 39.75"
Chest: 43" (unflexed-cold)
Shoulders 51" (Unflexed-cold) Are you supposed to go all the way around on shoulder measurement?
Right Bicep: 15" (Unflexed-cold)
Left Bicep: 15"
Right Thigh: 24"
Left Thigh: 24.5"
Right Calf: 15.5"
Left Calf: 15.25"

Thanks guys! Didn't make it to the gym today because of snow and other obligations, but hitting it tomorrow for sure. Chest/tri's and cardio is the plan. Probably no school tomorrow so my boy will be with me. Always good having him there to help spot me and vica/versa.

Weight loss has slowed quite a bit, but I haven't had much time to do cardio either, so I'm sure thats the problem. Between my business and the weather just haven't had much time at the gym. I was at 204 pounds this morning.
My Eviscerate came in on Saturday. Added a bit of Clen to it so we'll see what happens with that now.
I've tracked everything I've eaten with Fitday. Here's a breakdown since 1/1/09
AVG. Calories per day: 2019
AVG. Protein per day: 194 grams, 38%
AVG. Carbs per day: 135 grams, 27%
AVG. Fat per day: 80 grams, 34% almost all fat has come from EVOO, Fish oils, Lecithin, and ground flax seeds and nuts.

Had a planned Cheat meal last night. We went out for my fiancee's birthday dinner. Chinese Buffet (OUCH) Didn't do too bad though. Took DCP before and after, tried to keep portions reasonable (Although the General Tso's Chicken kept calling my name)
I was pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning and get on the scale and find it said 203.
Probably wont make it to the gym today, but will do the stairs at work tonight with my weight vest to get some cardio in.

Good job man, you're an older dude and changing diets and excercising can be tough sometimes, for anyone.
Just wanted to congratulate you.
Hope you get better results!

Been doin real low carb since that cheat meal. Got in some good cardio on Saturday too. Scale said 201 this morning I'm pretty happy with the way things are progressing. Gonna hit chest and cardio hard tomorrow, and I have my weight vest with me for the stairs here at work tonight. Gawd I hate that.

Wow has the computer business been busy. Not complainin, just sayin. Makes it tough to get to the gym and to eat right. But, the good news is I hit 200 this morning. Still averaging 200 grams of protein a day, hitting about 2100-2200 calories on average. All carbs are comming from oats or brown rice (except for incidental carbs from veggies and nuts, pistachios or almonds mainly)
Started the evicerate about a week ago now, and I can see the difference all ready. Also started CLA in the morning and night (6 caps split)
My boy and I made it to the gym this evening. I'm not much into evening workouts, but took a EC stack and ended up having a pretty decent shoulder workout. Hopefully I can get back there tomorrow for a back workout.

WooHoo!!! Woke up today and weighed myself. Came in at 197!! The cardio and diet are certainly working. I feel STRONG too. Set a PR on the incline machine yesterday (all the flat benches were taken) Maxed it out at 400 pounds for 10 reps... my best before that was 8 reps. Pyramided my way down in 40lb increments worked each set till failure. FUKC I'm sore today!
Will try to post new pics today or tomorrow as time permits.
Edit: Thanks for the tip on Eviscerate Dsade! I think its making a real difference.

down 20 lbs.....definitely congrats. I am most likely gonna follow along the type of diet you are doing. I like the idea of still losing weight with good carbs while maintaining a high protein content.

awesome progress man! im on a cut myself too. tired of having too much body fat. your gonna look great. time to get cut!
02-15-2009, 09:46 AM
Hope its going well. I'm sick of my diet already and the junk cravings are hitting hard, add that to non stop stress at the house and I'm headed over the edge!
02-15-2009, 10:12 AM
You can do it! Just hang in there. I was craving pizza bad at my security job last night. Almost picked up the phone a couple of times. Then one of the guys I lift with sometimes (he works on the 4th floor) decided to go to Wendy's and asked if I wanted anything. ARRRGH! I munched my bag of cauliflower and looked at the progress I've made.
Still hanging in at 198. Once again the computer business has been very busy so I haven't been to the gym since Thursday. Will be going tomorrow for sure though.
02-15-2009, 10:16 AM
I need to find the time for cardio. I can get my gym time, which luckily is cardio based in rest and supersetting. But the daily cardio..not been there.
I will get it done, I'm nothing if not stubborn, but man I hate the foods I'm on. Orange roughy..shudder...
02-15-2009, 02:26 PM
Very good progress!
Calipers take time to learn to do correctly...Has your lady ever used calipers before? How many times did you have her pinch each site?
02-22-2009, 09:51 AM
WooHoo! Weighed in at 195 this morning. Still have those damned love handles though. Workin my abs a lot more.... I've kinda neglected them. Going to continue the cut down to 190 and re-evaluate from there. Gotten some really cool comments from people at the gym! Sure makes me feel good LOL!

Extremely impressive. I am trying to drop my love handles as well. Keep up the dedication and they will be a thing of the past....eventually. :-)
