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 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!

Yay Matt! Great job! I was down another .4 tonight, not what I was hoping for, but still moving in the right direction! It's snowing in Ohio, and I'm loving it! I'm sure you're enjoying your warmer weather there, but I LOVE the snow! Have a great week!
