6/21/06 Weigh In!
*sigh* I gained a pound. I'm exactly 1 pound heavier than I was 2 weeks ago. Now I can't say that I'm not disappointed because I am...just a little. I will say that I do feel that there has been improvement. My muscles are tighter. My Balance is much better. I have a little more energy and my clothes and even my car fits a little better. So there has been obvious physical improvement. I was just hoping that the scale would reflect that. But it doesn't...yet.
I don't know how accurate these electronic scales are. The ones that supposedly measure your weight, body fat and fat free mass... But I used the same scale so I assume it's at least accurate when checked against itself. And if that is true then there is one reading that has improved. Total body fat:
on 6/8 the computer told me my total body fat was at 51.5% and 269.4 lbs (122.2 kg)
on 6/21 the computer tells me my total body fat is at 49.9% and 261.5 lbs (118.6 kg)
which in my books constitutes aprox 8 lbs of fat loss. Someone check my math...I could be misunderstanding the numbers!
So there you have it. I don't know if it's a major improvement but I'll take it as a sign that things are starting to go well. Besides I never expected this to only take 2 weeks...I'm in it for the long haul and I hope you will join me for what should be an interesting ride. Besides I need someone to talk with me on the trip so I don't fall assleep and crash this blog into a ditch somewhere in the middle of nowhere!
