I'm Wide, But Not Fat!

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Today was official weigh in day. Not much of a budge on the scale since last month only minor reduced inches, but some progress has been made!

I decided a few days ago to drop my weekly calorie goal some more to shake up my body a bit along with some informal calorie cycling. I think it is a good plan as I swing into month #2 of trying to get back to where I belong. It seems to be working. Also being mindful of carb consumption. I can't live w/o them, but I was exceeding my range too often.

The best news is that my energy level, resting heart rate (59), and estimated body fat % are awesome! I don't have a fancy scale or those skinfold calipers, but I used two different mathematical BF calculators and decided to record the higher result for tracking (16%).

I guess this means I am LEAN. It probably is somewhat skewed as I have a tiny waist and more ample hips. But I don't care...this makes me feel positive and healthy! DH keeps rolling along sans alcohol. Thus, life stress levels are definitely way better than they were at the end of 2010.

Looking forward to slipping back into my clothes without thinking "damn, these are snug" -- but I'll take these modest victories for now.

    Way to go. Girl, as a woman with "AMPLE HIPS" myself, I say if you are working out, watching what you eat, and being more conscious of healthier choices all together who cares about the rest.
