Stubborn thing still reads 180 after 5 weeks of trying to cut.
Thing is the scale at the gym is reporting that I've lost a pound a week for the past five weeks.
Being as obsessive about minutia that I am this led me to question one of the staff about its calibration. This led to a "Jesus, Jay, you asked that six months ago when it read above 200. Most people would be happy to have the scale report they've lost 25 pounds. If the bar floats at neutral when the slides are at 0 it's calibrated."
I certainly don't want to cut my food back any more... if anything the 1600 to 2000 I consume are dissappearing as soon as they hit my stomach: Before I was never hungry and now I look longingly at a pound of meat. I'm stronger on most lifts and I look much larger in certain areas (especially shoulders, back, and forearms which I've traditionally ignored).
Maybe I should add some cardio. Or throw my 10 buck home scale off my balcony. Or just keep doing what I'm doing until none of my lifts increase for a month. Maybe #2 and 3.
