Not the usual progress

August 2, 2008 at 4:11 pm 2 comments

Well, this has been a weird week.  For the last week, since last SUNDAY, I have been the exact same weight, within a few tenths of a pound.  I’ve been walking at work, moving up from about 1.5 miles to about 1.75 miles each time.  I walked Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and today.  I met and actually exceeded my SparkPeople goals for the week.  I did my strengthening workout on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. 

Now the progress part.  Last night when I was getting ready for bed, I glanced at myself in the mirror and realized that I’m already getting better muscle definition.  My endurance is growing quickly.  I feel great after I exercise.  I don’t dread it, most of the time. 

My food intake is in check, too.  The scale has to give sometime soon.  I did my last measurements last Sunday.  I think I might do them again tomorrow to see if there is any progress there.  I’d really like to see some scale movement though.

Oh, that damn scale is playing with me too.  On Thursday, I stepped on it and the first reading was 262.2.  I thought, WHAT?!  Wednesday it was like 267.something.  So I got on it again and sure enough, 267.4.  Blah.  Stupid scale.

*Edited to add:  I went ahead and did some measurements today.  My waist went down 1.5 inches, hips 2 inches, my bigger upper stomach went down an inch, calves down an inch and upper arms down an inch.  WOW!

    The whole gaining-muscle-losing-fat-staying-the-same-weight phase is hard, but you will definitely see the results!

    Congrats on the lost inches!

    Congrats on the inches lost. Try eating something different in your diet then you have been. I find when I eat the same things day in and day out I stay the same but when I eat something different my weight changes. Just a suggestion.
