9 weeks and looking for more changes

Sunday, July 12, 2009

Just weighed in for the 9th week, and ive now lost a total of 21.2lbs (1 and half stone). I am truly proud of what I have acheived so far, and but I am no where near content, its only going to get tougher from here on in, so I am on the constant search to keep my motivation up. I have had to buy loads of new clothes etc, which has made me feel great, and have dropped sizes in jeans, shirts, t-shirts just about everything! Took some more photos today, but there was only very slight changes in the body from my 5 week photos, but did a comparison of the photo that made me start this journey and one now, and could see quite a big difference in the face, but again, I still see this as work in progress.

At the gym I got my body fat percentage calculated using calipers and it came out as 32% body fat, so that says it all really, Ive still got a long long way to got, and right now hitting the 185lb goal seems acheivable, I think I will need to ammend that to about 160lbs to really tone down and reduce the BF%. After that, its a change of focus again as I would like to build up muscle, feeling a lot weaker these day, dont get me wrong, have loads more energy, but just not as physically strong as I used to be.

On to week 10!

    Great blog, THINBEANZ! You are doing very very well and have to be proud of yourself -- and at the same time, it's understandable that when you see what you have done, you think about what more you might do and adjusting your goals accordingly. I'm in the same space myself right now . . . .

    WOW! That is a huge difference!!! I'm sure you've changed a lot more than you're letting yourself believe. We are, after all, our own worst critics, ya know? I looked at my before and after pics and learned that I wasn't giving myself enough credit when others would say I'm doing great and looking good... I'd just brush it off cuz I felt I wasn't really seeing changes. But, now I do and am giving myself loads of credit. Living this lifestyle isn't easy, so take credit where credit is due!!!!
    Have a great day!
