I used to look good at 170lbs, didnt had much size but was far from emaciated, I looked fit. I suppose I was 15-17% body fat then. I believe if I got down to 160, Id look fairly lean and smallish and if I got down to ~150, Id look very lean but awfully small.

Yes, I want to add muscle and gain strength. Weighing 150lbs is far from my goal, it's just that I wanted to 'get this over with' you know, get 'lean' once and for all.

I figured I'd maintain that new condition for a couple of months, maybe more, to try to upregulate my hormones or other physiological aspects as well as to consolidate new eating habits. After that, I will probably attempt to 'bulk'.



But again, this is all conjectural. I say I'd like to get to 6-8%, but given my history if I manage to get down to a healthy 12% body fat - instead of getting even fatter and less active than in 2017 - and stay there for a while it will be a huge victory for me.
