Comp-In 07.06.2013: Two Out Of Three!!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

This is not, I repeat, NOT (note the all caps for emphasis) a weigh-in blog. This is a Comp-In blog (focusing on Body Fat %)

If you're looking for a weigh-in blog, many others are still posting them. If you're really picky about seeing one of my personal weigh-in blogs, I strongly recommend going into my blog archives. This one is one of my personal faves:

Seriously, someone with the SparkHandle SPIFFYCAT commented on it. How awesome is that!?


I have been experiencing a plateau for the past two weeks. Given that I usually post weigh-in blogs, I figured that my Saturday readership would plummet after 3-4 weeks of me whining about not losing weight (or worse, me bragging about being able to eat whatever I want and not gain).

so instead of posting my numbers in 2xx.x@yy%, I'm making the bold move of posting my BODY FAT FIRST (Mua hahahahahaHAHAHAHAHA). yy@2xx.xlbs


Goal: 21% Body fat by end of July

June 29__22@206.0lbs (First Comp-in)
July 06__21@206.2lbs (-1%)

Mission acomplished-ish. My first comp reading had me at 22%. "OK", I thought, "maybe next week". Then the second said 21%. I was, like, "OK, that's weird. Lets go for a third time." And the third came up 21%!!!! WhaAAAAAT!!?? Two out of three wins the match.

I've been working my lower body really hard between walking, Pilates and leg workouts. I know that's what moves the body fat percentage downward on my scale. Not neglecting upper-body, but not giving it the huge focus that I have been

While I'm realistic that this plateau may still have a few more weeks in it, I'm going back to my 2000-2400 calorie range to get to 195. My body reflects a 1% drop in body fat (or at least a two-thirds of one). While I can't wait to start losing wight again and hit 199.x and 195.0. I'm going for 21% three out of three next week.

Time for my morning walk. The body fat isn't going to burn itself!

Thanks for reading.

- TD Out!

    NICE! Keep it up! And keep working those large muscle groups too! 21% on a 2/3 - I'd take that in a heartbeat! XO

    AWESOME!! I'm assuming your scale calculates your body fat percentage as well as your weight? I think I may need to invest in a body fat percentage scale! (mine scale is kinda iffy anyway) Then there might be less disappointment if the scale isn't moving but I have another way to track to see if i'm gaining fat or not! I have total faith that you will hit 3/3 next week :D I can't wait to see!! emoticon

oh P.s.. thanks for not rubbing in the fact that you can maintain and eat whatever you want emoticon
