Dropped 4% of body fat. Oh crap.

Friday, November 13, 2009

Yesterday I got my body fat percentage test results. Turns out I dropped almost 4% of BF in this 4 past months. Started at 27.9% and now I'm 24.1%. Go me, right? Yeah, sort of.

This last three months I was feeling really good about my fitness efforts and seeing results in how my clothes fit, my face changed from a "ballon" shape to a more normal shape.. you know, good progress. So good that I started to feel like me again, 4 years ago when I was at 11-12% body fat and had a "4-pack" (yeah, never got to the whole 6 or 8 pack back then).
So I was-- I am doing great, eating better, training a lot, and feeling like me again. Thinking about myself has a "lean" guy. Fitness role model. Super me. Ripped me.

But with this results, ugh- I don't know. This made me feel that I'm not fit, nor lean, nor ripped. I just went from "UBER obese me" to "just obese me". I felt like I was so close to the goal line, and now I see it soooo far away :(

Oh, well. Just got to keep at it. Yesterday I missed my workout, not because of this but because I was too sore from the last time. Today I have body combat class.

Last, I did the math and I have lost 2 pounds of muscle too. Crap.

    cut the negative thinking crap-
    it serves NO purpose.

    What's your hurry?
    You are making changes you can live with your whole life.
    That's what matters.
