Fourteen months along - super sweaty day


Sunday, November 18, 2012

And not from heat.


We'll see how well that picture comes out. That is the back of my shirt I wore at the gym this morning, after I'd finished my workout. The top little section at the neck - that's the only part that is dry. The front didn't fare much better. Whooo-eee.

Here's the latest shots:

17 Nov 2012 @ 169.5 pounds


Side View

Another three pounds this month. I'm in a little bounce up from my latest low of 168.5 pounds (which I sat at for three days, then bounced up a tiny bit for my Wednesday Weigh-In for the BLC#20 I'm doing).

This puts me at 81 pounds down from my starting point - and only about 15 pounds away from my "goal" of 155 (originally was set to 160, but I dropped it after some consideration). I'm leaving that goal really open-ended though. For all I know, my memory of my body at 150 pounds could be skewed and I could safely get down to 145. Or because of all my weight work, I could have more muscle / lean body mass and 155 be a stretch.

Really, even now I'm less concerned with the scale than the pockets of fat that need to be reduced - most notably around my torso and abdomen. They're the last to let go, and likely to take longer than hitting a goal weight to shift as needed.

========================

Last picture has nothing really to do with the above. I've gotten into the habit of walking from work to a further away light rail station that gives me a 1.6 mile walk. The city I work and walk in for this has decorated a freeway underpass I walk through. Hopefully this picture shows what I mean:



It's neat to walk toward that in the dark. (Not so neat that it is that dark when I'm walking ... it's the one pitfall of losing Daylight Savings Time. But I wear my reflective bands from a Firefly Run, so at least I'm not hard to see.)

    You'll reach that goal and it's good that your not letting the scale rule you, muscle is more heavy than fat, so you might have a nicer body at 155 than you used to at 145 :)

go go go, you can do it! :)

    Ok, something occurs to me but I'm not sure how to ask.... You've lost a bucketload of weight and that suit isn't saggin' (that I can see), how on Earth did you fit old you in it when the new you fits in it so nicely? Random though #2 - I have that exact same scale.
Last thought - that underpass reminds me of the Chicago airport.

    Wow...your photos do not lie. Great job!

That is one cool looking underpass. That must liven up your walk a bit.
