On this site I have tried to emphasize the importance of fat loss instead of weight loss. I do weigh myself daily to see trends and typically my weight fluctuates with a downward trend. I have actually charted this out.
The bad news - On my Day 3 lifting (see My Routine) high rep workout I do several exercises that have been tracked to see see how my strength trends as I loose weight.
For a very long time this has trended up yesterday I wasn't able to do near as many. I look at this in a few ways
1. I did crossfit the day before - I had been taking a recovery day in between this but with my schedule this week I wanted to fit both workout in and I was sore
2. I had my weekly 44 hour fast on Monday-Tuesday and went straight into my crossfit workout and intermittent fasting I just don't think I had the food/carbs in me to push it
3......which is also the good news is I weighed in this morning at 192.4
This is a new low and it means I have lost 20 Pounds since I started I think this recent weight loss push has caused my strength to decline some which is ok, it happens. keep in mind that I am eating carbs so this weight is not me cut down from keto shedding my water weight.
I have not been doing a cheat day as my weight has continued to dip and I have been feeling light. My weight loss has been consistent over the past few months but recently I feel like I just plain can't eat as much in my window as my stomach seems to have shrunk. This fullness is new to me as I have always been able to just keep eating and not get full.
I'm guessing my weight will go back up a little and then continue to trend down as it has as long as I've been tracking it. Looking at my current body I think getting down to 185 would be good. I can't imagine being 180 and not looking sick but we'll see how things continue to progress.
In other interesting news I have been taking 3mg of Boron for the past few months and stumbled a across an interesting video showing studies that for testosterone enhancement 3mg showed no change but 6-12mg is a better amount. I am going to up my dose to 9mg today and 6 tomorrow rotating back and forth skipping my fasting day. We'll see what this does for me. I'll keep you posted.
