Those scales tend to produce results 8% high for someone who has gained some real muscle through weight training. That means if it reads 18% and you are 5-11 and 190 you are at 10% BF right now. Do you have 26 inch thighs or some kind of massive hernia that we can't see?
If you are 5-11 and 190 and at any rate no more than 6 weeks from super lean, why cut up now. Are you happy with the size? Regardless of scale weight, you have got at least 20 more pounds of muscle in you and that is going to take a lot longer than cutting 4-6 pounds to take you to 7.5%. And its odd to read that you are disgusted by your flab.
