following: adamevegod's own diet
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

I'm 55, from central Maryland.
5'10" and fluctuate between 154-157 lbs
I'm currently at 12% body fat. I believe I have achieved 10%, and would one time like to achieve 8%
Married for 35 years have 3 children, 2 girls, one boy. Two years ago I lost my son (26 years old at time, former USMC who toured Iraq) due to PTSD and an overdose while self-medicating.
I have 11 grandchildren.
At my heaviest I was 191. I got into a 116 week weight loss competition with a group of about twelve people. It was evident by around 6 weeks no one but me was serious. By the end of the competition all had dropped out but me. I really liked both the weight loss and the health gains that I had achieved and continued. At my lowest I got down to approx 143 lbs, all through portion control-no exercise.
It was then that I had been noticing people's concern for my health. I looked so guantly that some thought I was wasting due to cancer. I finally, realistically looked in the mirror and saw what they saw, ergo the exercise phase. Needless to saw I didn't pursue this properly either. I never warmed up or cooled down all while achieving unbelievable numbers for a man in his 20s, let alone 50s. I completely tore off my supraspinatus and had it reattached. Needless to saw it will never be right in spite of all the PT and exercise I have done to overcome the malady. No one could know unless I had to do something overhead. My present journey is one of health and physique. I NEVER exercise without warming up or cooling down-NEVER. Every workout is an internal competition with myself. I love to compete.

You can do it by early summer
Yes, losing 2lbs a week is very doable, and can be done healthily. Do it!

Good to get a grip-grip it hard, only you can make you fail.

Weigh in
I agree with Ingria, it is likely water weight, it could also be your scale. Sine mine was new (it's digital) the first reading is always, "ALWAYS" 4-5 more, then after that it is always consistent. make sure it is not on carpet, try a few readings at the same time. Always weigh in on at the same time, and I never do it more than once a week, and always on Mondays. Monday readings keep me more disciplined through the weekend knowing that Monday is the day of reckoning. Lastly, you need to want this, no one can do this, only you. train your brain to appreciate this thought; "I like the permanent results I see in the mirror, more than the failure I taste in my mouth. God's speed.

How often should someone work on their abdominal Everyday? or 2-3 times a week ?
I do 5x a week, and my workouts are insane.
