I'm going to be updating this log soon as I have started to IF seriously again after a long layoff. This time around I started in the middle of July at BW of 192 (UGH!) ~15% and I'm currently down to 186 and ~12%? I'm noticeably leaner than I was when I started. Performance has increased since July.
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
