June 27 Switching it up. Cycling calories. 2350 and 1800 calories on alternating days. IF on the 1800 calorie days.
Forget the weight - yeah, no I won't... I have to watch it like a hawk - as long as I can stay in size 32 jeans it's all good. I'm hanging around 180 with a 32" inch waist. I intend to keep the waist, trim the fat, and build the muscle.
Greetings from the frozen wastelands of British Columbia. There are two season's here. Winter and Sprawl.
At the end of 2012 I was 230 pounds. I started The Zone diet, a diet I had used before that had worked well for me, and began to cut. By the end of 2013 I was about 180. Diet turned to lifting weights. I still love to lift. Got down into the 165 area in the summer of 2014 and held for a while. Then I went with the excuse of a bodybuilding 'bulk' to eat more. I won't do that again. I ended up very close to 200 pounds by the new year. Now I'm on the cut again and have another month or so to go. Though I still love the weight lifting, my focus is turning more toward rock climbing. I've always had trouble sticking to one thing.
Anyway, diet led to lifting to accelerate the diet results, then lifting became my focus and diet was used to support it, and now lifting and diet will support the rock climbing. Now if I can just get more comfortable with hanging from a cliff by a thread. That rope seems to look thinner each time you venture higher. :( Loving it.
