Also, as promised, here are my latest progress pics!
I lost 5 inches in 8 weeks! I actually only lost about 8 pounds between November and January. That's 1 pound a week, which is good! However, the really awesome thing is I lost almost FIFTEEN pounds worth of FAT! The percentage of my body that is lean mass has increased - meaning...I am STRONGER! Remember that word?
I'll report more results after the next 8 weeks. (at my gym, I get weighed/measured every 8 weeks) My goal is to have lost 10 pounds. Oh, and to be able to do the push ups in my workout routine as regular push ups, not girly style push ups. Stronger, right?
