Here is an average of my daily food intake for this past week:
107.1g Fat (65.3%)
19g net carbs, of which 14.3g came from veggies
I weigh on a body composition scale, so I can tell how much fat, muscle and water I have gained or lost.
Scale weight lost this week - 1.2 pounds
Fat lost this week - 1.2 pounds
Muscle lost this week - 0.1 pounds
Water gained this week - 0.1 pounds
Total scale weight lost since starting - 7.8 pounds
Since starting, I have lost 5.2% of my total body weight. I need to lose another 11.5%. I have lost 31.2% of the 25 pounds I need to lose.
According to my doctor, I needed to lose 35 pounds of fat, and gain 10 pounds of muscle. So far, I have lost 9.7 pounds of fat, and gained 1.9 pounds of muscle/water. The testosterone and weight lifting must be starting to work!
I've also been keeping track of my measurements on fitday. I measure every Sunday.
Neck 13.75 - 12.75 = 1 inch down
Bicep 11.75 - 12.00 = 1/4 inch up
Forearm 9.00 - 9.00 = same
Chest 38.25 - 37.50 = 3/4 inch down
Midriff 33.00 - 30.75 = 2-1/4 inches down
Waist 31.50 - 29.75 = 1-3/4 inches down
Navel 39.25 - 35.75 = 3-1/2 inches down (the heart health zone, so this is great!)
Hips 42.00 - 39.75 = 2-1/4 inches down
Thigh 24.50 - 22.50 = 2 inches down
Calf 14.50 - 14.25 = 1/4 inch down
Total lost this week - 1/4 inch
Total lost since starting - 15-3/4 inches
I am finally seeing some good weight loss! At Colette's advice, I dropped my calories down to the lowest end of minimum, and, as soon as I did that, I immediately started losing. What a relief!
I am taking my supplements, including Acetyl L-carnitine, drinking 72 oz. of water each day, and walking 2.5 miles on a treadmill at 3 mph at least 1 time per week. I do a Hatha Yoga class twice per week. I do the circuit (weigh training) at the gym twice per week.
