start of cut: ~183 lbs
weight: ~167 lbs
i dont have a fitday journal to show you, but ill describe my diet as best i can with some of the following guidelines i follow.
-typically have 3 meals in the schools cafeteria. i do 1 scoop of protein before and after each meal
-whenever im hungry, ill typically have another scoop of protein.
-if the cafeteria is serving truly crappy food (ie spaphetti w/ alfredo sauce), ill just come back to my room and eat a can of tuna or chicken with a slice of whole wheat organic bread.
-typically will snack on some almonds if im hungry, as well
id try and get more protein from food, but powder is almost the only option i have here.
so basically what im getting at is i believe my protein intake is good at probably about 120-150g a day. fats/carbs fill in the rest of the gaps, with more carbs pre/post workout than other days.
i have been consistently losing ~1lb a week and i am down probably about 15 lbs since i started late september, yet i still dont think i am getting the results i should be. there are a few little differences, but i did a few picture shots yesterday and compared them to the start of my cut, and there are only a few minor differences i can notice. its just slightly depressing to know i am down weight and i have been trying to do everything right, yet i am not getting the results i think i should have been. have any of you had a similar situation? is it perhaps i just have a lot more weight to lose than i first thought and is 15 lbs just not as much as i think?
i am going to keep cutting until spring break in a month. ill post my pictures ill take from then and the ones from the start of my cut just before i leave. this post is mostly just a rant since im slightly upset at the current state of my "progress." any helpful input from people would be nice.
