Current Weight: 208 lbs
At this point in time, we are well past the halfway point in my 16-week transformation. The original goal was about a 35-pound drop in body fat, so I am only somewhat behind at about 20 pounds.
I am going to continue to modify my workout to up my caloric output. I'm continuing with my six training days per week (see previous article for details), with a three day split. The first half of the week will be heavier, strength-based compound movements with moderate rest. It will be followed by half hour cardio, which will consist of swimming or the stairmaster.

I am absolutely committed to this goal, and even if I haven't been perfect to date, I WILL be successful.
This time around I found my energy levels and motivation somewhat lackluster, so I brought in a workout partner from Bodybuilding.com Customer Service, Anabolic Adam, to help spur me along. He kept up with me (actually, I was trying to keep up with him!), and he helped push me along to complete my workouts.
