performance: losing 9.0 lb a week

Hey guys and girls, I'm 29 yo, and I have been gaining a lot of weight in the last decade, a trend that started right before college when I was around 17 and lasted until about 4 years ago with me weighting as much as 125kg(275lbs)!! I'm 1,76m(5ft9).

Except for the time in college that ended in 2004, I have always been an avid martial arts practitioner, since I was 4 yo(literally), and even continuing my very bad eating habits, but with a lot of training, I dropped my weight to around 115kg(253lbs) 3 years ago, then after that it sort of settled in 110kg-112kg(242-246lbs).

I began to take my Jiu Jitsu training, at least 4 times a week in 1h30m sessions, far more seriously, and I ocasonally to bycicle rides in a moderate speed, around 15km/h, a couple times a week, after that since mid october, I lost around 3kg(7 lbs), my goal is to be at 99kg(218 lbs) by february, to lose that extra digit, because of that, I'm seen a nutricionist, that I went also a lot because of severe fatigue and muscular pains, caused in a combination of poor eating habits and excessive training.

I'm trying to log all that I eat and all the activities I do through the day, in some cases, overestimating what I eat, when I'm not so sure, feel free to check my diet/exercise/journals, they are all open.

Anyway, here is some of my weight history:

2001: 100Kg / 220lbs
2004: 110Kg / 242lbs
2007: 125Kg / 275lbs
2008: 115Kg / 253lbs
2010: 112Kg / 246.4lbs
oct 19: 110.9Kg / 244lbs
nov 7: 108.4Kg / 238.5lbs
dec 5: 104.5Kg / 230lbs
jan 9: 99.3kg / 216lbs -- MAJOR GOAL ACHIEVED!

Sorry for the long bio, just want you guys to have a good background info.

When exactly do you stop being fat? at what BF% (Before and After Pics Inside)
Thanks @LunaXJJ and I was thinking about that @Spacey47, I thought maybe 18-20%, but a friend of mine who is at 18%, he is not ripped, but seems to be in excellent, really remarkable shape, and a friend of mine at 15% is ripped, so that just seemed rather really difficult goals, then again so did it look to be under 100kg.

When exactly do you stop being fat? at what BF% (Before and After Pics Inside)
Here is the deal, I'm weighting better than when I was 17yo, however, when I was "fat", I didn't feel fat, neither did I care much anyway, today I look at the mirror and I see that I need to lose some more abdominal fat mass, and so on.

Below is a before and after pic, so I presume I'm just currently overweight, before up to 9 months ago (the pics are 4yo, but I still had the same body), I had around 112-115kg(246- 253 lbs) and 31-33% of BF, today I'm at 24% of BF with 93.8kg(206.4 lbs), so I would like know, how much is the recommended % BF of a healthy, "normal" person, IMF I know it's a bad parameter, because it only takes into account height and weight.

Can you outwork your diet?
@kingheld and paperiniko

I'm definitely gonna improve my cal intake in the next week, but at the same time, eat better, only less refined carbs, not fully eliminate it, because my main objective is to reeducate myself and those protein diets just don't do that IMO.

Can you outwork your diet?
I will try that, I always wanted to try bodybugg to see how much calories I spend in a daily basis, however it's impossible to get in brazil and they are very expensive to order from the US, not to mention custom taxes, also my HRM with the help of a friend of mine who is a physio, I can calculate with a lot of precision how much I spend on the exercises.
