Great week all things considered....

Thursday, March 07, 2013

This has been a great week in all but one department the scale lol.. I will kill the suspense I am up 1 pounds. However I feel GREAT!!! I feel lighter than I have in months. I feel stronger. I am gaining muscle... According to my scale I have lost .5% body fat this past week. even though my weight has went up. I had an awesome workout on Tuesday. I finished my last set of single arm rows and incline bench press with 75 pound dumbbells. So even with the gain i am feeling good about where I am. My clothes today are fitting loser and the pant I am wearing I will probably need to retire soon before I have a wardrobe malfunction. Never felt this good about a gain before lol. Here are the numbers for the week.

Starting weight 380 lbs
week 6 weight 272.4 lbs
week 7 weight 273.4 lbs
Difference +1 lbs
Total weight lost 106.6 lbs
lbs to goal 23.4 lbs

Had an awesome weekend. Friday went to see an awesome local band with Korina and friends Tahiti Rey and Jason.. Here is one of my favorite songs they do..

Spent Saturday working but once work was over went and hung out with my co-workers and listened to Them again. They actually cam over and had a drink with us after their set was over.

Sunday We went to the North Shore and hung out during the day and then cam back and had a poker party at my neighbors. Below are some pictures

Oh and just a reminder of where I came from...

    The smile on your and Korina's faces say it all!!

You are doing FANTASTIC!!

Oh! And I'm a huge lover of weights, so I totally know what you're going through with that gain! Lifting heavy weights does AMAZING things to your body composition! The scale, however isn't a fan. But, like always, it will catch up!

Great Job! :-)

    Well done my friend! I've read many articles about muscle gain, many people especially guys see a little gain in muscle weight at first then after no time see a good loss in fat weight. You'll get there, just keep moving forward!

    You are feeling good, and "looking" good! emoticon Congratulations on the "good kind" of gain! My son lifts weights and does push-ups, and is happy with his muscle gains too. You're doing great, keep it going! emoticon

    You guys look happy, and it appears that you've been working on your tan! How you feel is more important than what the scale says and you're getting stronger every week. Keep it up brother!

    Excellent blog--you look fantastic...confidence, happiness, and comfort exudes from your pictures. Way to go! It's so refreshing to hear someone not worry about the numbers on the scale...I'm sure mine will go up, but I'm going to take your advice and focus on the way I feel rather than some silly number!

CONGRATS on all of your progress!!! :)

    Woohoo! Sometimes when the scale isn't moving (or isn't moving in the direction you are hoping for) focusing on the NSVs are always the best! way to go on feelin' fine! emoticon
