The importance of measurements
Friday, February 15, 2013
So... I started out this recent weight loss journey at 155lbs. I started weight lifting and doing very mild cardio, and ended up at 161lbs. I wasn't taking measurements when I first started out, so needless to say I was pretty bummed. I was doing awesome on my eating and everything.
I started Turbo Fire on 1/26/13, but the next day I threw my back out something awful. I didn't exercise for 2 weeks, then did Turbo Fire for 6 days. Which brings me to today. Today will be my 7th day of a modified prep schedule, then tomorrow I am going to start my regular schedule of Turbo Fire. I feel I am ready to take it on!! My endurance has improved greatly, just in this one week I have been doing it.
I've been taking measurements, and they have been decreasing. My weight is currently at 159lbs. The picture below, I am pretty much the same exact weight, plus or minus a pound. So I guess there is something to say about gaining muscle and losing fat.
The "Before" pictures (on the left) were taken 1-26-13. The progress pictures were taken 2-15-13, after 1 week of Turbo Fire.
So see people... you can stay the exact same weight but lose a lot of inches. Had I not taken these photos, I would still be discouraged. I knew I lost a lot, because my clothes are fitting way different, but I didn't realize just how much, especially in my hips. Wow.
As of today, I've lost 1.1% body fat. I will have all my measurements tomorrow.
