So Monday was the beginning of week 5 with the personal trainer!! I have 15 weeks to go!
We did a 7 point caliper test today, and it turns out that 118.06 pounds is muscle, 25.6 lbs are fat and my body fat is 18.0%. Now this means that my goal of 130 or less is not obtainable. While I was excited to hear the news about how low my weight is now, and the body fat (I shouldn't complain because I started out with 47.6% body fat) I was somewhat disappointed. Reason why I was disappointed is because what I wanted was not going to be realistically possible for my body. I have a larger frame and I am mostly muscle as you can tell from the 118.06 lbs as stated above. Weird how I went from happy to bleh in .1 second. But I shouldn't be down, I am proud of my self for loosing 29% body fat, that in it self is way more than I ever thought possible.
The way I should look at this is that I saved my own life by taking the steps necassary to carry out the weight loss. I DID IT, no one did it for me, and for that I am proud. I went through pain, I sweated, I cried, I chose not to have that BIG FAT JUICY BURGER!! I chose healthy choices over bad, I went months without sodas or Ice cream. I am so proud of my accomplishments and I am determined more than ever to keep pushing my body to the edge! I am ready for that 6-pack abs to be more defined, I am looking to tighten my glutes!! I am excited to see what the next year will hold for me!! (no more babies!!) If it weren't for kids I would still be skinny, but without my kids I would still be fat....my babies are my motivation to be fit, healthy and happy!!
