    No Change - Not even an ounce. I would be more disappointed then last week, but I am not for 3 reasons.
    1. The scale is not an accurate indicator of body composition change. Muscle weights more then fat so even tho my weight was unchanged, I suspect I have put on some muscle. Fat also occupies more space and seem my clothes are baggy in the butt/thighs. My booty has gotten smaller so there is no way I have gained fat.
    2. I noticed some definition in my arms and legs and back that I didn't have 3 weeks past!
    3. Several ppl asking if I have lost weight and today, the gay guy in my office say, "G Friend" are you losing weight? I said I am trying but the scale doesn't think so. He says, G friend, you ARE looking thinner. I ask where, He has me turn with my back side towards him and touches the spot between my waist line top of the gluts and says....right HERE!

    I did pirouettes down the aisle all the way to my office. That man has never made me feel so good!!! Just try to beat that! HA!

    I hit my macros 5 of 7 days but failed on the 2 days I start late and work out later so I am going to address this by tweaking meal times.

    Week 4 Plan
    same macros - 1400 cal; 158 g p/105 g c/ 39 g f.
    Cardio 4x per week/ Weight training 3x and Continue Austinite OTC Fast Loss Stack.
    Glad all is going well. I actually do like her music. I use pandora. Anything from Led Zeppelin to Amy Winehouse to Little Wayne.

    I think tomorrow is going to be the end of a grand week. Just got that feeling. I had a cheat meal last nite - feeling it today but heading to the gym for a 2 hour workout. . Should be gone just in time for weekly battle of the scale. Lol

    3rd week recap: Scale not showing me any new numbers.

    haven't been taking pictures and will start. Thanks for the reminder TDogg. Weekly pics are more effective motivator.

    Austinite has me straightened out on his OTC fat loss stack. One more week and then i need to take a mandatory 1 week pause. I rather not, but he INSISTS and He might issue me a written warning if I don't take the week off. LOL

    3 Strength training/1 yoga/3 cycle/1 - 4 mile run at 10.5 min mile pace - this is the most training i have done in about 1 year - feels good.

    Symmetry - my upr arm / shoulder symmetry is off - very noticeable to me. I need to even this out.


    ONE MONTH SUMMARY
    Didn't get serious until second week and after the major cheat weekend.....so it's out of my system now and I hit my stride.

    Down cumulative 2.5 inches. The areas of loss are where I carry fat so this is good sign. It's not in all the areas I want to address, but good start.

    The Austinite Fat loss STACK is awesome for carb cravings. Luv luv luv it!

    My look - more toned, arms looking ripped.

    Week 5 plan

    hmmmmmm I would really like to see the scale change.....

    3 months back I was only eating between 700 - 900 calories on a good day. 1400 is still plan.

    one more week at this macro split and then open to forum suggestions/recommendations.

    Plan to have another good week - food, training, water, macros!

    I've only been on the scale once since I started the stack. This is month two now for me. Seeing more results in the ab section on the right side lol.


    Pictures are key. On the scale I went up 2lbs, but I lost a good bit of fatty fat fat.


    Keep going!!!!

    I am noticing a difference. I this stack! Ppl are noticing which is even better!!! Several ppl including the gay colleague - commented on my Badinkadink this week. He is very observant and body conscience of himself and others. LOL

    My stomach is deflating altho yesterday was rough. I am going to consider it my high carb day and let it at that.

    Today, back to biz!

    Some weeks it would be easy to give up if it wasnt for this log and YOU guys and gals keeping me motivated.

    No workout in one week bc I have one of those jobs that makes demands on my time certain weeks. No workouts which I really miss. I feel sooooo much better when I workout. My mood is better, my confidence is lifted, my mind is clearer.

    Weekly food was ok with exception of one day as noted earlier. I come to realize that one bad day and no working out isn't moving me closer to my goal. Water intake was not up to par. Busy at work means not eating and drinking is inconsistent.

    Good news is I didn't gain any weight, bad news is I didn't loose any neither.

    Now the other good news. I had LHRemoval this week. Technician sees me mostly undressed and commented on how thinner, tighter and sculpted. I haven't lost an ounce in about a month and i haven't been in for an appt in 2 months.

    This week. Gonna tweak the macros alittle. See what happens. I have a week pause in the fat loss stack from Austinite. And will get in a few workouts this week.

    Appreciate the support. Happy to be looking thinner. Hating my scale. LOL.

    Out of 150 words, YOU focused on those 5 LoL.

    Btw those techs do men as well. Big burly hairy backs. And even legs and chests. Apparently some gals also have very hairy backs, almost beards and some are 2 bills. Pick your poison I guess.

    Well I guess I that's what's happening but I want that scale to go down too!!!!!!! My measurements have also gone down but not exactly where I want. I must figure out how to get rid of fat in my tummy. I guess it's just consistent diet over time. I need to be more patient.

    If lipo was an option. I would suck those tummy fat cells and place right into my booty. No joke.

    I couldn't keep any food in me for 5 days but finally turning the corner. I did weigh in in Wednesday and down 2 lbs but pretty sure it was all fluids. I worked out one day, extremely fatigued and think it prolonged my recovery.
    I am going to take another 2 days off and pickup a more normal diet/training.

    Staring back on the austinite OTC fat loss stack

    So, are you fat or fit at the minute? Or somewhere in between? Fat fit? Fit fat?

    in the big picture fit! But I am not content !!! I have one fat spot that bugs me to no end and there is no other option but diet and exercise. I have been working on both. Becoming more purposeful, but haven't found the answer, yet.

    I don't see anything wrong with wanting to improve. In the last several months I have increased calories by 500 and lost 9 pounds but I do seem to be stuck.

    Recently discovered I am carb sensitive - I have always suspected this, especially since I am diabetic (genetically predisposed). It is becoming more clear to me that I must eliminate certain carbs, reduce carb % and/or find the carbs that don't make me sick.

    Many members have had amazing results with carb cycling - 405 had recommended this approach for me. Your thoughts???

    I've always wanted to try carb cycling myself due to 405's great results. Just can't seem to let go of carbs. I may be in love with carbs.

    BTW, Dietary changes made in the past 3months account for good news in the fasting BW front and drastic reduction in hemoglobin A1c points to the chromium taken in the last month prior to blood draw. The change is so significant from prior results, doctor instructed me to keep doing whatever I am doing!!

    I am following Austinite protocol in this thread from supplement forum.

    I didn't know Chromium would drop the hemoglobin A1C?
    I should spend more time reading in that thread!

    Sure hope you turn the corner soon! It's been a long time.
