I am more worried about body composition right now. I just used weight as shorthand. My approximate body fat has dropped from about 35% to 26% (using a tape measure, so who knows how accurate it is).

I'd like to see if I can get down to the 69kg weight class, but if when there I'm at a level of leanness that is too difficult to maintain without going diet-crazy and sacrificing my workouts, then I will bulk back up to stick around at 75kg.

EDIT: Oh, I think my post was confusing. I have been eating 1800-2000kcal a day, and have dropped from 187 to 171.
