How is this possible???

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Ok I weighed in this morning. Not quite what I was expecting. I figured I would have gained some weight, as all the female problems I am currently having. I did...0.6 pounds. But I cut my body fat % by 8%. I am now at 43% body fat. How does that work?? How do I gain weight but drop a good percentage of body fat?? My hydration level was 41.3% so I am obviously retaining a little water; this would explain the bloated feeling. But I said I would keep track and update everyone of my progress so here it is:

Last Week:
Weight: 217.2
Body Fat %: 50.1%
Hydration Level %: 36.4%
Chest: 43
Hips: 45
Waist: 39
Thighs: 22.5
Calves: 16
Arms: 13.5
Neck: 15

This Week:
Weight: 217.8
Body Fat %: 43%
Hydration Level %: 41.3%
Chest: 41
Hips: 44
Waist: 38
Thighs: 22.5
Calves: 15.5
Arms: 14
Neck: 15

So there is the progress I made this week. Some numbers went down, some went up, and some stayed the same. Luckily I still have tomorrow to weigh in for my 10 pound a month challenge team challenge. And 2 more days to weigh in for my biggest loser team challenge. Hopefully I will have lost some of this water weight that I gained this week. Workout I

    Okay 5 words!
    Fat weights less than muscel.

    Did you notice that sure the scale said a little bit more but the measurements went down!!!! That .6 could be only a glass of water you drank!!!

    Great job on the NUmbers going down!!!
