Goal date - September 1, 2009
Here is an average of my daily food intake for this past week:
107.8g Fat (67.4%)
13.7g net carbs, of which 10g came from veggies
Total lost this week - 1.1 pounds
Total lost since starting - 6.6 pounds
Since starting, I have lost 4.4% of my total body weight. I need to lose another 12.3%. I have lost 26.4% 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 6.6 pounds of fat, but I have not yet gained any muscle. The testosterone and weight lifting should get that started!
The weight loss has been slow but steady, and 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 - 11.5 = 1/4 inch down
Forearm 9.00 - 9.00 = same
Chest 38.25 - 37.25 = 1 inch down
Midriff 33.00 - 31.00 = 2 inches down
Waist 31.50 - 30.00 = 1-1/2 inches down
Navel 39.25 - 36.00 = 3-1/4 inches down (the heart health zone, so this is great!)
Hips 42.00 - 40.00 = 2 inches down
Thigh 24.50 - 22.75 = 1-3/4 inches down
Calf 14.50 - 14.00 = 1/2 inch down
Total lost this week - 1-1/2 inches
Total lost since starting - 15-1/4 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, drinking 64 oz. or more of water each day, and walking 2.5 miles on a treadmill at 3 mph at least 1 time per week. I do a Pilates class once per week, and a Hatha Yoga class twice per week. My doctor ordered me to start my weight training, which I did the other day.
