    5.5month progress pics (I need alot of work)

    I started at about ~225lbs, 19% body fat. I dont have any decent pics from when I started, but I was getting pretty chunky.

    These first pics were taken in about January. I was about ~208lbs 17% body fat. I dont remember exactly, and I should have recorded it on the pictures, too late now though :hs:
    *edit* the dates on these four pics are wrong.

    These are taken today. This should almost be the 6 month mark. I am not too happy with the progress since the last set of pictures, I think I need to workout harder. My ultimate goal is to get ~10% bodyfat, then add some muscle from there. I never really had a desire to get huge, I just want to be attractive (to women :o).

    I know I need work on every part of my body, but my legs are especally bad. I'm going to start kicking up the cardio, and maybe get to about ~190lbs. I cant decide if I should try a bulking phase, summer is coming up and I want to finally not be fat at pool/hot tub parties. I'm down almost 30lbs though, I suppose that's something to be proud of. I dont have pics of my fat ass before I started to cut.:coolugh:

    you're looking good man, you have a good amount of muscle mass another 10 or 15lbs of fat loss and you will be pretty lean, keep up the good work

    Thanks, I need to stay motivated. My biggest problem is I love to eat, and go out drinking with friends. My favorite foods are grains, I wish I could eat baggles and bread and pasta constantly but I have to keep the carbs out and it's soo hard for me :wtc:

    my best guess is about ~2500 a day. I try to keep a mental record, and try to keep it under 2000 (with a high protine intake) but portions through me off alot.

    I tried using fitday.com but it was too much work trying to record everything exactly. I figured I'm just a chump and being that exact isnt necessary.

    Is it good/healthy to cut for long periods of time? I'm coming up on 6 months here.

    I have to assume since I'm cutting that my muscle gains are pretty weak right?

    yup, if yor at a caloric deficet your muscle gain will be slim to none. When you are cutting, muscle retention is the main goal (aside from the obvious).
