I think you're in the forever fluffy range (between 12 and 17%). Although you make significant progress, it's difficult to tell when looking in the mirror. Just a few percent less and your abs will 'pop' more. Great job so far and don't be discouraged.

This also must be the endless fluffy range where ab seekers end up dying.

You start to question if you'll ever get there. Start to think you're losing too much muscle mass. Start to wonder if it's worth it.

I've been here before.

Think the good news is it's only Feb 17th. Three + months till Memorial Day. Should be plenty of time even with some lengthy maintenance breaks to keep me sane.

Really would love to put this stake in the ground pre 50 years old. Snap the pic, enjoy the summer...

...then proceed to gain 25 lbs.

It may not be worth it. Once you have abs you'll forever screw up your view of what "fat" is.

That being said, for me at least, whatever my goal weight loss is, I may have to double it to reach my goals. Sucks, that's reality. So, keep losing until you like the way you look.

Although there's a fine line between liking the way you look, and pushing too far and feeling like crap.

I think my view of what fat is may already be screwed up lol.

The feeling like crap bit is not there for me. UD2 helps with that. I can deal with 3-4 days of pain if I know an avalanche of carbs are coming. It's not a big deal to me. Also, periodic maintenance (like this coming week) has my brain totally forgetting about dieting.

Will keep on pushing. Think next stop is 165.
