Starting next week I will tape a spot on my floor so I am always the same distance away from the mirror, the progression pics are all wonky because I am either super close or farther away- or in a baggy shirt in one of them.

    @FAVALL- no need for a body fat scale, I'm a crossfitter and we can get that info at the box. However, I am only working on losing the weight I gained back during surgery, as I already explained I lost A LOT of weight last year, I am a crossfitter and runner, I am just trying too get back to the weight I was at before surgery so I am ready when I am cleared to go back to my sports.

    You might want to get a scale that measures body fat composition. I'm finding it very encouraging to me. Allows you to track more than just weight, although 16 lbs in a month is pretty impressive. Good for you on give the increased attention and effort toward achieving your goals!

    Thanks for the 77 catch- yeah it is my waist and is for sure 47, I'm never sure where I should measure I put where I actually measure. I eat paleo and know my body really well at this point, I am very happy with the results considering I couldn't workout the way I normally do considering I am not cleared for running nor crossfit and pushing my knee too much isn't an option. I have about 24lbs to go before I am back to pre-surgery weight, I would guess that the next few months will be less than this month so I am happy to get such a great number.

    18 pounds lost in a month is incredible! Even considering it being your first month it's still a lot! I assume belly button is your waist? And you're a 47 and not a 77?

Edit: Never mind about the first month thing, just read the reply below me lol, but even starting back that loss number is very impressive!

    This isn't really my first month- I was, still am, an a crossfitter and runner- but I had knee surgery 4 months ago and gained 47lbs back during recovery so I am now taking that back off. This isn't my first rodeo so that's why it is coming off quickly.
