weight loss battle 07- 1 month in
Well today was judgement day again, time for the monthly official weigh in and new measurements, and I have to admit I was somewhat surprised yet encouraged. As it relates to weight, my official weigh in was 337.2 which is right at 5 lbs lost for the month. When I started this year I was at 342.2. While I did not lose as much "weight" as I had wanted to this month, the numbers are actually a little deceiving. My BMI went down almost a whole percentage point, which is great meaning I am becoming more active and my metabolism is going up. The best part though was that my body fat percentage went down 4.6% equalling out to 18lbs of body fat lost...so basically I "lost" 18 pounds of body fat, converting 13 lbs of that into muscle which is great. To say the least I am encouraged! So one more month down and a long way to go, but we'll get there! Gotta run, I'm off to the gym since all I did this morning was weigh in. Thanks for your prayers and encouragement and if you are fighting the battle with me, hang in there WE can do it!
