Side note: I've been a pooping machine for the past few days, woo! Go body, finally getting rid of the soy, dairy, corn, and gluten that I ingested over a week ago!
So I weighed in this morning, 134.8! Last measurements day was 135.4, I'll take it! (According to their scale, I'm down 2 lbs)
So the measurements, that I can remember -
Neck, biceps, calfs, chest stayed the same.
Everything else went down. By how much? I don't remember. I know my thighs are 0.5 inches smaller (WOO!) and I know my waist is smaller, but I don't know by how much.
But the main measurement - body fat percentage, that was a change! I went from 28.2% to 26.1%!! Go me!
Am I happy with my body though? No, not really. My belly button has yet to be visible, I still have that roll covering it up and the pouch below it. I know it'll go away, eventually, but if I'm not suppose to lose any more weight, then how does it go away? Obviously, I'm gaining muscle and getting toned, but as far as shaping my core? I know it's happening, I can see the roll and the pouch getting smaller, but still. I'm a healthy BMI, my body fat percentage is ALMOST healthy (less than 25%) and I'm fit. But still, I hate my body. I just don't understand how all the measurements say that I'm good when I don't feel good. I'm still barely eating, I'm trying to get in my protein, I'm trying to increase my calories, but it scares me. A lot.
But when I get below 25% body fat, I'm going to get a massage and have a spa day. The next time my measurements will be done is in about 6 weeks. That'll be late March, early April. My b'day is late April, so I'm thinking if those measurements are what I'm hoping then for my b'day (or early May when my measurements will be taken again), then I'll go to the spa. I need it. Now. But work is chaotic (seriously) and it's about to get more so for the next few weeks. Everything should click around April, so the spa day will be most appreciative then. I just gotta get there!
