Today is day 4 of week 7.

My weight lifting routines have mostly not changed from last week with some exceptions:

Fly Maneuver: 105 lbs vs. 113 lbs 2 weeks earlier (Again a drop in performance)

Seated Lateral Raise: 90 lbs vs. 95 lbs 2 weeks earlier (Another drop)

Rear Deltooid: 105 lbs vs. 100 lbs. 2 weeks earlier

My trainer is not concerned about the few drops noted. He is confident that a significant progress has been achieved and that things look quite well on multiple levels. A drop here and there every now and then is expected and is no big deal.

He also advised that it is not realistic for me to expect my weight to continue dropping as it did in the first few weeks. In his mind, 0-1 lb per week is realistic as I am doing things the very hard way: Losing fat while adding muscle. The muscle mass itself would translate in higher weight but that’s a good thing. As long as we continue to see a drop in fat percentage when the body composition test is repeated, there would be no reason to worry. I am fine with that.
