New Year's Experiment Update


The challenge at our gym started 4 weeks ago tomorrow. I've got 8 weeks left. I had all my stats re-done this morning. I've lost ten pounds and seven inches. However, looking in my file we found that my measurements were not taken correctly at the beginning. The measurements today showed that my fat percentage has gone up but that is not possible. I did not think that my fat percentage measurement was right when they took it and I said something then. This means my results are going to be skewed. Today I was one percentage point higher than what was stated in the records. Oy.

My before pictures are in that file as well. HORRIFYING. Why on earth did I do this? I signed a release for those pictures. OH. MY. SWEET. JESUS.

That's not swearing. It is a prayer of DESPERATION.

Wow. I've had some people tell me I'm brave. Ummm. No. Stupid would be more accurate.

WHY? why? WhY? Waaaaahuuuuhuuuuwhhhhhhhhy???

On a more positive note... yes, I am aware 10 lbs and 7 inches means I've made progress. It is my problem that I wanted more progress than that. Also... the blood sugar has been excellent and I have not been in the pre-diabetes range at all the last couple weeks. No drugs for me.

This is what really matters, all those other numbers are gravy. These numbers will keep you alive and healthy.

Congratulations, it sounds like you are doing wonderfully. Keep up the good work. Weight that comes off slowly but surely stays off. E

Mmmm, Rusty's Mom said, "Gravy." I think that I shall go have some. On Pop-Tarts!

I am understanding that you are now all of 5'-4" tall. Is this actually what you were trying to accomplish?

Congratulations on taking the steps to work out. I always plan to, but I come up with some excuse or other. 10 pounds is a LOT!
