So with excitement bubbling up in my heart I went off to weigh in tonight. We are officially one week into the cruise challenge. I wasn't in any doubt that I would not win tonight's weight loss because ALL these ladies are there for their first week which means loads of water loss. I'm into my 4th month and don't lose large volumes of water any longer. I will say that I was pleased with my .6g loss (that's not far from 1kg). My disappointment came when my readings were all wrong....or right, I've yet to discover which it is?
The scale says my body fat is up from 44.2 to 48 that's a MASSIVE JUMP.
Doesn't sound right??
It also says my body water has gone down from 40.2 to 37.8.
Again, how with all the water and hot lemon water and herbal tea I drink in a day....how is this possible?
My visceral fat has gone up from 13 to 14???
Can this be true considering that I go to boot camp every jolly morning???
My physical rating went from 57 DOWN to 52.9???
At this rate I'll need a wheelchair to go anywhere soon.
How can I be doing more and more at boot camp every day and get weaker?
My bone mass went down from 3 to 2.8.
I don't get it.
The harder I work, the fatter I get and the weaker. Well that's what those stats say?
I'm going to check with my boot camp trainer tomorrow.
My weight loss challenge lady feels that I probably am not getting enough protein. Really?
I eat protein with each meal, and each snack. She says I need even more because of boot camp every day which means I should be on a pure protein powder which is only 23 calories per 5g because I sure as heck can't eat MORE FOOD...I'll explode.
Ordinarily this wouldn't worry me, because I can see myself changing shape with my bare eyes. I can see the clothes lying in a bundle to go to charity because I don't fit in them anymore (too big for me now). My concern is that all these stats get fed into a computer and it deducts all those losses against my weight loss.......I can see my cruise sailing off without me.
I'm going to check the facts out, but ultimately if I don't get to go on a cruise....as long as I keep losing weight and feeling healthy, and get to exercise regularly...I will be content with that. The cruise was just the cherry on top. Still, I wont write it off unless I have to.
Let's see what Rico says tomorrow.
In the meantime, I am well, happy and doing great. So thrilled.
