      I've been cutting for almost 6 months now and dropped a total of 61 lb, however I am not seeing the results I expected.

      When I first started I convinced myself that I had only 30 lb of fat to lose and that I would be shredded at 200 lb (LOL) I realised that I was not gonna be shredded at all by 200 lb and to carry on with the cut.

      I am now 172 lb and still nowhere near ripped... I can still grab a handfull of belly fat. I feel like I've probably got around 30-40 lb of fat left which is gonna put me at 130-140 lb.... which is way too low... I must of lost a hell of a lot of muscle as I did lose a ton of strength, however when I look at my pics it dosent actually look like I've lost that much muscle. I am getting quite depressed at the moment as I don't wanna end up looking really skinny and anorexic but by the time I can actually see my abs I'll be like 130 lb which I think puts me in the underweight category.

      I've tried to make sure that my diet is completely perfect so I don't understand why I've failed so much :S

      Welcome to natural bodybuilding. Everybody who has had abs has had to get a lot lighter then they originally planned.

      First and foremost, it was NOT a failed cut. look at the comparison.u definitely are better off, and closer to any goal in the seconds pics that in the first. I wish i knew how to remedy your bump in the road, but i can at least tell you, you have not failed

      So wait, let me get this straight. You've lost 61 lbs in 6 months and your calling that a "failed cut"? You can't possibly be serious.

      looks like you did a good job to me, and as said most people have realized they had to go much lighter than thought to get to their goal look, I figure I will be around 165 or so to look like I would like to...but then bulk bulk bulk after

      OH LAWD if 61 pounds in 6 is failure....

      Byseps, you've done a really good job, it's just that you haven't achieved your true goal yet. That is not failure. You're doing the right thing, please keep at it.
