Week 80: Weigh-in Results
I need to lose a few pounds.
August 4: 224.4 pounds
Weekly Change: N/A
I’m not upset. You shouldn’t be, either.
I don’t buy the BMI calculators that say with my height I should be 170 pounds to have a “healthy” weight. I’d be skin and bones at 170 pounds.
With that being said, I do need to lose weight. I still have a small tire around my gut (loose skin?). I know I have gained weight since was last weighed in, but I’ve also gained about half an inch on my arms, as well. I’m not sure what part of the 24 pounds is muscle and what part of that 24 pounds is fat.
I’ll start to find out next week, though.
I’m proud and excited to announce that I’m getting calipers to measure my body fat on a weekly basis. We’ll see what my body fat percentage is every Wednesday starting next week. And, maybe even more exciting, I’ll start using a body tape measure to begin to monitor the shrinking/growth of several body parts, including biceps, chest, legs, waist, and calves.
As I said on my Facebook page the other day after I left the gym, I’m building a machine. It’s time to start digging into the numbers, tracking progress, and keeping a proper record of everything to find out what is/is not working.
This show has just begun, trust me.
