I got the 411

Saturday, April 10, 2010

So Its been almost a year on SparkPeople. 364 days exactly. Tomorrow is my one year anniversary. What have I accomplished? I lost a lot of weight. I can pretty much tell the calorie content of a plate of food, just by know whats there. I didnt know what to expect really. I was hoping to look differently though. Even though I have lost over 30 pounds, I still look at myself the same way in the mirror. I still see love handles, man boobs that are slightly less jiggly when I brush my teeth, and other problem areas, that probably only I view as problem areas. I wish I would have know the importance of strenght training in the beginning. Maybe I would have more muscle definition. Maybe some abs, or just not a gut for once would be nice. I grew tired and worn out after the end of last summer and didn't really exercise for almost four months. I am motivated again but trying something different. I have started strength training, to regain the muscle I lost. I am also going to try to add some cardio to help burn the spare tire off. I am not really concerned with what the scale says anymore. There are big people and little people...

Brock Lesnar is big. He fights in the UFC at 265 pounds.

Urijah Faber is small. He fights in the WEC at 145 pounds.

Both men are phenominal atheletes, and neither one is fat. Unlike Roy "Big Country" Nelson, another UFC Heavyweight, who prides himself on his belly.

So I guess what I am trying to say is.... I look a little like Roy Nelson in my mind. I want to look like one of the other guys, and know that the scale really isn't going to help me. Just because Brock Lesnar weighs 265 pounds, would you call him fat?

    The scale is definitely not the best way to measure progress! I think strength training will help you out a lot to lose inches! emoticon
