Weight and Measurement - Progress or Not???

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Today my weight is 205.8 lbs

Body fat is 44.8% which is up by 1.5 emoticon
Water 40.2 which is up by 0.3....this is high!
Bone 5.6 - the same
BMI 29.8 which went down by .1%


Neck.................13.9in ......down 0.1 inches
Bi's (L).............13.0in ......up by 0.1 inches
Wrist (L)............6.8in .......up by 0.1 inches
Chest.................40.8in ......down 0.4 inches emoticon
.......down 4.2 inches emoticon
in same
n........up by0.6 inches
Ankle (L)..............9.1in.......d
own 0.3 inches

These number's are very confusing. I expected to see more progress in all areas. Water seems to be a huge factor and I can see where my body is storing some of it. I limit my salt and processed food intake.

I'm disappointed, but not discouraged. I'm still on the right path moving forward.

It's time to make some more changes. I'm going to re-introduce raw food into my diet. I'm also going to cut out fast food/restaurant food and junk food treats. I need to get my water down and fat down.

I incorporate treats into my diet. I would have a dark chocolate Lindt truffle ball once or twice a week. I also like to eat twizzlers. I cut that out for a few weeks, but my bf bought some the other day and I ate a lot on Sunday and Monday. emoticon

On Sunday my bf made breakfast in bed. It was a whopping 600 calories!
I had no idea. He was not mindful as he should have been. I let him know for next time.

I'm hoping with all these new changes starting today, I will have a better result.

Sleep is still a huge factor...but I'm working on that. I'm making progress there. emoticon

    I see progress...your waist alone went down 4.2 inches that's something to celebrate. You've got your eyes on what may be the problems but like I'm learning the body don't aways cooperate the way we want it too. I even had times when I didn't workout at all for several days and I end up losing 2-3#s. But when I workout everyday for hour or more I'm staying the same and gaining weight. Today I posted that I might have to avoid the scale this month. It's discouraging to see how hard you're working and not see progress. Keep at it we won't give up will we? emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I know the feeling, you are really working hard, giving it your all and then the numbers don't reflect that. Hang in there! The numbers will change! When I have weeks like that, I look back at where I was when I started or I look at my healthy behavior and take pride in that. Keep strong! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    No reason to be discouraged...it takes time and you're taking the steps the change those. Get your sleep in and you may be surprised how the numbers change as well and give yourself some time to see the numbers change. If you've been at a certain weight for a while, your body may be working on the old eating/work out schedule; it's a machine and, on it's own, tries to maintain the status quo until it recognizes the old status quo is emoticon . You've probably heard, or experienced, that when you start making changes to your lifestyle, weight often times goes up. That is the body trying to keep the status quo and it will pull from other parts of the body to keep it there. Staying consistent in your plan is what reprograms the body.

    Keep on keeping on...keep pushing, regardless of how small the steps. emoticon

    Don't be too confused by the numbers. Sometimes the body freaks out when you make changes and it reacts in the opposite of what you're trying to achieve. Keep at it.

    The water could be from lack of drinkin genough water.
    I wouldn't get too discouraged. We all have bad weeks and good weeks.
    Keep up the good work.
    As long as you are feeling strong and healthy then that is all that matters.
