Comp-In 07.06.2013: Two Out Of Three!!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

This is not, I repeat, NOT (note the all caps for emphasis) a weigh-in blog. This is a Comp-In blog (focusing on Body Fat %)

If you're looking for a weigh-in blog, many others are still posting them. If you're really picky about seeing one of my personal weigh-in blogs, I strongly recommend going into my blog archives. This one is one of my personal faves:

Seriously, someone with the SparkHandle SPIFFYCAT commented on it. How awesome is that!?


I have been experiencing a plateau for the past two weeks. Given that I usually post weigh-in blogs, I figured that my Saturday readership would plummet after 3-4 weeks of me whining about not losing weight (or worse, me bragging about being able to eat whatever I want and not gain).

so instead of posting my numbers in 2xx.x@yy%, I'm making the bold move of posting my BODY FAT FIRST (Mua hahahahahaHAHAHAHAHA). yy@2xx.xlbs


Goal: 21% Body fat by end of July

June 29__22@206.0lbs (First Comp-in)
July 06__21@206.2lbs (-1%)

Mission acomplished-ish. My first comp reading had me at 22%. "OK", I thought, "maybe next week". Then the second said 21%. I was, like, "OK, that's weird. Lets go for a third time." And the third came up 21%!!!! WhaAAAAAT!!?? Two out of three wins the match.

I've been working my lower body really hard between walking, Pilates and leg workouts. I know that's what moves the body fat percentage downward on my scale. Not neglecting upper-body, but not giving it the huge focus that I have been

While I'm realistic that this plateau may still have a few more weeks in it, I'm going back to my 2000-2400 calorie range to get to 195. My body reflects a 1% drop in body fat (or at least a two-thirds of one). While I can't wait to start losing wight again and hit 199.x and 195.0. I'm going for 21% three out of three next week.

Time for my morning walk. The body fat isn't going to burn itself!

Thanks for reading.

    AWESOME!! I'm assuming your scale calculates your body fat percentage as well as your weight? I think I may need to invest in a body fat percentage scale! (mine scale is kinda iffy anyway) Then there might be less disappointment if the scale isn't moving but I have another way to track to see if i'm gaining fat or not! I have total faith that you will hit 3/3 next week :D I can't wait to see!! emoticon

    oh P.s.. thanks for not rubbing in the fact that you can maintain and eat whatever you want emoticon
