A weigh-in isn’t a strategy. It isn’t a motivator. It is data, cold hard and INCOMPLETE data, with no need whatsoever for emotional attachment.
As a conscious decision, I have almost never shared my personal metabolic experiments WHILE doing them. Partly, this is because I don’t want to call more attention to weigh-ins, and contribute to the social reinforcement of scale-worship. Partly, the weird stuff I do, though educational, is not particularly analogous for the layperson.
That said, this go-round I am going to share during the experiment. This was my peak weigh-in 2.5 weeks ago. To be clear, I was gaining weight on purpose, in order to regain lower body strength and mass lost from last spring/summer experiment (I didn’t train legs for 6 months). I don’t have an end-weight goal, though I expect to end up under 225 to be pretty lean.
During this particular season, I will relegate myself to only 16 minute bouts of “cardio” for cutting down. I’ll share methodology along the way, all of which has to do with strategy and steps, NOT weigh-ins for anything except dispassionate data collection.
