Some healthy progress

December 21st, 2010 at 10:40 am

I believe I posted about my 2-lb. weight gain at my Sunday-before-last weigh-in. Well, last Sunday I weighed myself having only worked out twice during the week, and I showed as having lost 3.5 lbs.! I think it's more that my earlier weigh-in was thrown off by a heavy meal shortly beforehand, but still, great news.

Cumulatively I'd gained 1.1 lbs. since I started trying to be healthy, so with this latest loss, my cumulative progress is a loss of 2.4 lbs.

I actually think I look like I lost more than that, because I had no muscle on my body, and so building muscle might be slowing my weight-loss numbers. So I feel pretty good. I'm within 8 lbs. of my estimated pre-pregnancy weight. More important, getting in shape has helped me get through the snow, which has been crazy-deep this winter. There are a few times going to daycare when I've been very thankful about my slightly strengthened leg muscles!

    Scales do fluctuate.

    For me, the BMI and body fat numbers are really helpful. (My gym has a machine you hold in your hands that calculates those). Inches lost and fit of clothes is good. And, I use my mile run time as a guide. In 6 weeks, I went from 10 minute mile to 8:55. To me, that is progress.
