For the last 12 weeks I have been working out for one hour, 3 nights a week. My Company offered this program as part of a benefit for Kilometers for Cam. Cameron is a young boy who has Progeria, a disease that makes you age faster. The 5K walk was the highlight to the program. Also included was 12 weeks of Strength and Cardio training by a local fitness/nutrition professional.
We had a pre and post weigh in, BMI, blood pressure test, and a step stress test to see how our bodies did for the period. Below are some of my results:
Weight: Start = 307.5, End = 308.5, Gain of .3%
BMI – Start=39.5%, End = 39.6%, Gain of .3%
Fat %: Start = 51.3, End = 36.4, Loss of 29%
Total Body Water: Start = 35%, End = 46%, Gain of 31.4%
I was asking my fitness coach why I wasn’t losing any weight. Instead of losing weight I was turning my fat into muscle. I lost 29% of my body fat!
My Total Body Water went up 31.4%. My coach advocates you drink one-half of your body weight in water per day. For me that is over 150 ounces! I have not met that amount but am drinking more water than I used to.
I am very pleased with my results. I feel better and can move easier. I hope to continue her program.
