Day 83: Week 12 Weigh-in

Last week I gave a little sneak preview of something that was coming soon on my wife’s blog. She partnershipped with Scotts and me to do a promotional post about Scott’s fertilizer system:

The post is now live over at House of Hepworths – go check it out along with some more pics of me!

Now, for my this week’s weigh-in and pictures. If you remember, last week I had lost 2 pounds. I was a little frustrated because I’m trying to gain muscle now. Well – good news. This week I gained 3 pounds. Two weeks ago I was 160, dropped to 158, then back up to 161 this week.

Over the last two weeks, it’s a net of 1 pound gain. Here is the chart of my weight since I started Body For Life. You can see the initial weight loss as I burned off fat, and I’ve planed a little bit as I’m eating more and trying to gain more muscle, with a gradual increase of 4 pounds over the last 5 weeks. The first 7 weeks I lost around 2 pounds per week and the last 5 I’ve gained an average of 1.25 pounds per week.

Now, for my pictures this week. I’ve done a compilation similar to what I did after four weeks for this week’s pictures. First, the usual pics:

Now, with the progression every two weeks (click to enlarge):

There’s not much left for me in the 12 week Body For Life Challenge. Tomorrow marks 12 weeks to the day since I started. I’ve heard that many times you can’t see a huge difference until at least 6 or 8 weeks. If you’re doing Body For Life and don’t see huge improvements, even through 8 weeks, just keep sticking to it. My most drastic improvements showed the last 4 weeks. You are building muscle all along, but at some point you burn off enough fat for the muscle to start showing through. This has been an amazing experience that I’ll never forget.
