    Smile Progress after 14 months - lost 100 lbs and to continue cutting or not

    Hey guys. Long time lurker but never bothered to make an account. Finally decided to make one to ask for some advice.
    Stats:
    Male, 24, 5'6
    Starting weight :240
    Current weight: 138
    Current body fat: 12% (used strongur bf calculator based on my lifts)

    I've been fat for most of my adult life. Lost 80 lbs and got into lifting a couple years ago. Then I got married and stopped lifting and gained it all back and more. Once I noticed I was out of shape again I got back into eating right and lifting and have lost about 100 lbs since June 9th, 2021. Doing a slightly modified fierce 5 with compound lifts on MWF and accessories on TRS. Strength was going up when I was heavier but have lately been going down slowly. Eating a low carb diet 3 high protein meals a day about~150g protein daily and most of the rest of the calories from fat currently about 2000 cals total a day and losing about 1.7 lbs a week pretty consistently.

    Current lifts:
    Deadlift: 275x5
    Squat: 215x5
    Press: 105x5
    Bench: 155x5

    I've been a fat guy for so long that I'd really like to get down to about 10% body fat or however is low enough that I can get some abdominal definition (not sure if abs will be the right word considering the extra skin on my torso). My plan is to keep cutting on track for another 4 to 6 weeks and begin a well deserved nice long lean bulk to get some muscle on my frame.

    Any thoughts on how accurate my 12% estimate is? My family keeps telling me I'm getting too skinny and I need to stop but my ego would really like to lean out a bit more before i begin my bulk, figure it'll give me me room to bulk up anyway. But if stopping cutting now would be best for my long term development I'd be willing to begin bulking with a moderate surplus sooner than 4 to 6 weeks. Can i keep cutting if I'm feeling fine or am i a delusional anorexic like my family insists and I need to get some muscle on my frame ASAP?

    New poster so I can't do attachments I don't think but there are progress photos on my account. Thanks for any feedback.

    Great job on your progress so far, man! And uh... thanks for wearing underwear in your after pics lol.

    Anyway I would actually advise that you begin a 'slow' bulk, maybe 1/2 lb. a week. The reason being is that yes it may be possible to get a little bit more definition but you are a bit on the skinny side so wou won't see as much as you would if you put on a little more muscle. Just make sure you're on a solid program and don't fall back into your old habits. The muscle will come.
