I just got done reading all of your messages of encouragement after my weighin. I knew this blog was a good idea! Did I mention that you guys rock?? I just want everyone to know that I'm feeling good about the weighin. At the worst it adds a little human drama to the whole thing, don't you think?
The fact is that I feel good. My clothes are looser. My posture is better. My energy is up and my balance has improved and my legs feel powerful. Seriously I feel like I could leg press Canada! *RrrrRg* You feel that Kyle??
Honestly I had prepared myself for minimal weight loss. I've always known that muscle is 3 times denser than fat. Of course it would have been nice to see the weight come down on the scale...but that's cool. I know that progress has been made. Besides It's way too early to get discouraged. Stick with me for about eight months and watch me whine when I hit that first plateau...then you're gonna see some bitchin' and moanin'.
For now I'm good. And I don't want you to think that I'm just masking disappointment because I'm really not. I can't even begin to express what it's like to have so many kind people (Most of whom I've never met) take the time out to hold me up during what could be a very frustrating time. I could try and I'm sure I'll continue to try but mere words will never express my appreciation.
Tomorrow I work out again and I hope Kendrick agrees with my logic regarding the whole body fat versus muscle gain? What do you think Kendrick? By the way, say hello to my Trainer at 24 Hour Fitness everyone! Kendrick follows my journal every day to check up on me! See you Thursday at 6pm. Don't worry I'll park at the end of the parking lot and walk in!
