Day 30 – Body Progress Report

Today marks the 30th day since I’ve started this body transformation project. 1/5th of the way down. Numerically speaking, I am making progress. In fact this Day 30 stats aren’t looking too bad:

  • Weight: 191.8 lbs.
  • Waist: 40″

Total Change:

  • 12.2 lbs. of body mass
  • 2 inches of belly fat

Not terrible. My pants are feeling a little looser and my body is feeling stronger; however, the pictures aren’t particularly dramatic.

The most dramatic change in the photo appears to be that 30 days later, I am finally able to comb my hair. In the before and after profile shot, it is evident that my belly has shrank a little bit. As a result, I am able to wear a lot of shirts that I wasn’t able to before. That says a lot a right there, but we all know that nobody wears shirts on gay cruises, so for the purposes of my transformation, it’s not a particularly helpful indicator of achievement.

I can’t say I am disappointed with the visual results, but seeing these pictures only inspires me to keep working hard in hopes of a more dramatic difference.

Short Term Goals

Looking forward, my next Body Progress Report will be on day 50. My short term goal to achieve on that day is to lose 6 pounds of body mass and to lose 1 more inch of body fat. which will put me at around 185 pounds (generously rounding down.)

Day 20 – Body Progress Report

 

D20 Weight Graph D20_Waist_Graph

Day 1 Stats:

  • Weight: 204 Lbs.
  • Waist : 42″

Day 20 Stats:

  • Weight: 195.6 Lbs
  • Waist: 40.5″

I am quite happy with the progress that I have made. I have managed to keep to my workout regime, weight lifting 4 times a week and hiking 2 days a week.

I weighed myself a handful of times over the past 10 days and I fluctuated from about 192 right back up to around 197. This morning the wheel landed right on:

I am happy that I am not losing fat too fast. The plan was to give myself reasonable goals and lose weight slowly, not “crash diet” and starve myself (too much) and I like to think I am sticking with that. I must admit, following a lower carb, intermittent fasting diet is quite a challenging shift from my previous no-limits, overindulgent eating habits. However, I have to keep reminding myself that in order to take up residence in the gay ideal body, I must subject myself to a considerable amount of self-denial.
