So I’m pretty new to these forums, but I thought I’d start another training log to hold myself accountable.
I’m currently just under 5 weeks into a caloric deficit. My starting weight was 107kg. I’m currently 98kg, as of today. I weight myself daily, and fit it to a graph with a trendline, which I’m happy to share if anybody doubts my progress. Because of that, I can visualise my progress, and I know that this time, it’s not going to be like all those other timesI said I was going to make a change, lost 2kg of water weight and called it a day.
I’m male, I’m 184cm’s tall, and I’m 25% bodyfat. I’m 24 years old. A healthy weight range for my height is around 65-80kg. More importantly, I want to join my country’s police force, and I need to be under 92kg just to get in. Because of that, my goal is to get to around 65kg, then start working on my second goal.
That second goal of mine is to eventually compete in powerlifting. I don’t have a deeper reason for it, I just think it would be cool. But that’s not just “go to a meet and finish a lift”. I want to be competetive, at least on a local level. That means when I hit that goal of 65kg, I’m immediately going to start trying to pack on muscle, and try to really give it a real go.
I’m stuck in lockdown, and have been since 2020, with only sporadic bursts of being able to go to gyms, and because of that, I got to the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life. Not only do I not want to go back there, I want to be the guy who makes an epic transformation. I want people to go “wow, he really turned things around!” and so far, I am. I haven’t taken any new progress pictures since I started, because I want there to be a real difference when I do.
This is going to be my log. Right now, because cardio is most of what I can do for my weight loss, I think the name is accurate. I’m gonna run like I’m on fire, and try to burn all this fat away.
