Update:

March 13, 2017: 66.60 kg / 146.8 lbs
March 20, 2017: 65.85 kg / 145.2 lbs
March 27, 2017: 64.50 kg / 142.2 lbs (today)

Current skin-fold measurements (quadruple-checked):

Suprailiac: 4 mm
Chest: 5 mm
Thigh: 8 mm
Abdominal: 11 mm
Midaxillary: 6 mm
Subscapular: 8 mm
Bicep: 3 mm
Tricep: 4 mm
Lower back: 11 mm
Calf: 5 mm

Current waist circumference: 78 cm / 30.7"

Current neck circumference: 38 cm / 15"

The journey is slowly coming to an end. Been working hard, and progress is great. I like what I'm seeing in the mirror.

I know I have low LBM, but I also have lots of time to build it. My small frame however (wrist circumference = 15.5 cm / 6.10") is something I can't change.

Estimating myself at 12% BF currently. Jackson-Pollock ridiculously underestimates (as expected) by giving me 7.28%, whereas Durnin-Womersley gives me 11.48% (much more realistic IMO).

Goal is 10% BF, which I assume will be somewhere around 62 kg / 137 lbs. Will not post photos until I reach my goal.

I'm not sure what sort of weights you're lifting, but tbh 64kg sounds outrageously skinny at your height, even at 12% body fat. I advise caution going further. I fear you are risking running into hormonal problems.

Thanks for your insight and concern.

Nonetheless I do feel the need to point out the following:

I have a very small frame for my height. As I pointed out in my previous post my wrist is only 6.1 inches, maybe even slightly less. Ankle size is extremely small and just overall bone thickness is, well... tiny. This puts me at a significantly lower weight than someone else my height, even having the same amount of muscle & fat.

As far as weights go, strength has started to somewhat decline, which I was expecting to happen many months ago to be honest. My current 1RM in bench is 75 kg, which I'm satisfied with.

AFAIK (and I'm no expert) hormonal issues are mainly due to very low body fat, and not merely low body weight. In regards to hormonal health I try to get plenty of dietary fat and also supplement regularly with Vitamin D. And if endurance / strength / libido is any indicator, I'd say I'm doing very good.

Well, good luck with it anyway. Probably another 3kg or so, max. Phenomenal weight loss btw. May your success serve as an inspiration to many.

Congrats on your big loss. That is something and it was not easy.Long journey but worth it.
Can you post a recent picture with you? I'm curious how 1.84 m goes with 64 kg. I'm 1.8 and started from 118kg and now 87 kg. I know that I have to go for at least another 8-9 kg but then after that I don't know what to do.Thanks.

Thank you.

I actually wanted to avoid posting until I'm completely finished with this cut, but sure, why not.

Here are two from today:





The stubborn fat deposits are slowly but surely disappearing.

Now definitely won't post new photos until I'm finished.

And these last days feel like weeks.

After so many months and so much work... finished.

April 03, 2017: 63.10 kg / 139.1 lbs
April 10, 2017: 62.25 kg / 137.2 lbs
April 17, 2017: 61.60 kg / 135.8 lbs (final weight)

Total weight loss June 06, 2016 - April 17, 2017: 52.4 kg / 115.5 lbs

Starting today I'm aiming for estimated maintenance kcal minus 10% for safety reasons. Will monitor weight closely and adjust. Goal is to remain at maintenance for 4-6 weeks prior to going into any surplus. Will also keep fats low during high carb days.

Body weight will most likely increase during actual maintenance and stabilize at around 142 lbs I'm predicting, even prior to going into any surplus.

Although I'm "exhausted" after all of this for various reasons, I also feel fantastic for many other reasons. Overall I just feel great to be honest.

Will post photos and other stuff including skin-folds in an upcoming post. I'd do it sooner but really really busy with lots of things at the moment.

Thanks to all for your insights provided in this thread. Will write more later.
