Back to college has been bitter sweet for me these past few days. I shall start with the down side.
This past week i have hit a bit of a plateau in my weightloss, hanging around 201.2-202.5. I thought that the last pound and a half would be gone by now but i cant seem to shake it. I know it has only been a week but i have been eating tons more fruits and working out just as much, if not harder by throwing in some other exercises. I may be a little worried about this prematurely, but its really been a bit of a bummer for me this week...
On the bright side, it seems as though the classmates i haven't seen for 4 months have really noticed my transformation! I got three compliments on it yesterday all from different people! I cant even begin to explain how big of a confidence booster this was, one comment and i walked a little taller and smiled alot more! It is just a fantastic reminder that through all the sore muscles, choosing salad over fries and dedicating my whole summer to my health is a life long reward that i will never regret!
Question for all of you sparkpeoples! for those of you who haven't read my last entries i have lost about 30 lb in 6 months bringing my to my current weight stated up top. I am very pleased with that number but the number on the scale has been giving me some troubles this week as you have read. I have never really gone below this weight in my life and i would like some advice.
Should i keep my main goal at 170lb seeing as my sister, who has a thinner frame, was at about 160lb when she was my age?
Should i go to a health professional/buy my own fat calipers and make my overall body fat percentage goal 18-20%?
Please leave your advice below in the comment section and if you think i should do the body fat percentage, where should i go to buy/ get this assessed?
Thank you all for taking the time to read this! Have a great day and remember: be healthier than you were yesterday!
