Where am I after 5 months?

Sunday, November 01, 2009

I never expected a number to have such an impact on me nor did I expect it to be the catalyst it was. 34% body fat was where I was back in June. That number really bothered me. I told everyone what it was. Many people thought it had to be wrong because I didn't "look" like I could have a number that high. Clothes hide alot.
I've continued to keep track of the food I've eaten. This has included days where my food choices were good and days where the choices were not so good. That's ok though.
I've also continued to keep a regular workout schedule which can be difficult sometimes.
So after 5 months, my body fat is 18.2%. I increased my lean weight by 10 lbs from 112 to 122 and decreased by fat weight from 58.3 lbs to 27 lbs.
So I say to the ol' 34% number...... pffttttt!
