I have gone from 165 to 175 pounds.
11.5 to 12.5% BF

I had just bought some new pants several weeks ago and was a loose 32. After measuring myself this morning, I seem to be a 34. The 32 pants still fit but are much more tight around the waist. I am also measuring chest and legs but don't have a reference point for those.

The good news is that my lifts are still going up.

I'm anxious to see where I'm at in another 10 days. I don't think my body can handle a 36 waist!
Paraphrasing Rippatoe....

nyone who's under 18% body fat and sill worried about it is concerned more with aesthetics than performance...not that there's anything wrong with that...

focus on the lifting, track the eating and don't worry about the rest
