    Hey Joe/Bryce/All,

    Been cutting for about 6 weeks now. Down about 10 lbs to 6’2 205. I’ve always been lean”ish” but in July I hated what I had become (roughly 16% bf). Figured I would cut for about 10 weeks and really love what I’d see. I’ve been training for about 11 years and tend to have a pretty good grasp on nutrition.. for someone without any real background and thanks to HTC. I recently measured for the first time in about 5 weeks and noticed my arms are down a quarter inch, legs down a half inch, chest/back down 3/8″, and calves down a quarter. I get super uncomfortable at the thought of losing muscle and/or size because I was so skinny up until about 9 years ago. So when I cut, I tend to cut it short thinking I’m losing muscle. Am I overthinking all this? It’s only 9 lbs but that drop in measurements seems pretty drastic. Could be water, I guess. Just curious if anyone else, including the coaches go through this, if it’s normal, or if i am right in panicking haha. Btw, lifts are still pretty consistent and I have seen decent changes in the mirror in 6 weeks.

    Anyway, thank you guys for all the content and information. Can’t express how useful it is and how much I enjoy you, Joe, on all platforms.

    Man, that is so reassuring. I really never thought about glycogen. You’re absolutely right there is something wrong with us and how we get in our own heads and get discouraged. Certainly won’t be measuring anything else but maybe the waist from time to time. Thanks so much Joe. You’re the best. Also, can’t say how personal and awesome it feels to get audio replies and tailored responses. This app and your platforms are invaluable. Thank you.
