Fat vs Muscle weight
Saturday, September 07, 2013
Life's conundrum , pretty much like which came first the chicken or the egg?
Ultimately we always talk about having other ways to measure our progress other than the scale and it is just as well. For the past month I have sat at the same weight. I cannot budge that darn scale...however, today I fitted into 3 (unforgiving style) dresses I made for myself 7 YEARS AGO and they fitted well with a tiny bit of room to spare.
When I last wore the dresses, I was - in weight - lighter than I am now.
So while I know that 1 kg of fat = 1 kg of muscle........????
I am in no way complaining, I love the progress I have made and plan to still make.
I saw this on face book and LOVED IT.
I saw this email and photo from my nephew AND REALLY LOVED IT.
The email comment was short and sweet, all it said was "good girl"
I'm 53 years old and he's 34 years old.....I'll take the compliment if its all the same to anyone.
I can't wait to see the original photo's taken from the back view on day 1 of the first weight loss challenge compared to this photo.
Ah well, time ticks on and progress is slow, but it is progress all the same. The scale shows that I not only have stayed the same, sometimes even gained a little, but the clothes tell a totally different story. Not going to let that phase me because Im working entirely to the scale. From Monday I will be taking my body measurements again and then seeing that number compared to the scale also.
Hoping you are all having a good weekend and making great choices.
