Weigh In 2/28/11

Feburary 282011
Weight: 160.4lbs (-2.2)
Body Fat: 32% (+1)
Bust: 37.75" (-.25)
Waist: 30" (-.75)
Hips: 40.50" (-.50)
Bicep: 11.75" (-.25)
Thigh: 23.75" (+.25)
Calf: 15" (0)


Overall a good weigh in I think. A few goofy +'s in odd places, obviously I don't really trust the body fat calculator on my scale, since I can be 32% and drink a cup of water then be 34% so I don't mind that + and the thigh addition is also odd, but it could be a measuring issue. The important thing for me is I was able to lose what I gained over vacation and some! Too bad I couldn't break through my 159 barrier.

I think it is important for me not to build that number up, I mean it has been that number that I just couldn't seem to budge past, but being only 1.4 lbs away, I am almost positive I can get it next week or by the next. Now this does mean that my goal of 150lbs by March 12th (my girlfriends wedding) isn't looking so hot. I mean 10 lbs in 14 days - maybe for a biggest loser contestant but seeing as it has taken me 2 months to lose 10 lbs I just don't think that is an appropriate goal for me to set for myself. Instead I am going to shoot for simply breaking through my 159 barrier. Maybe... just maybe I will be 155 for the wedding which would be just peachy for me.

Since it is the end of the month (my goodness where the heck did February go?!?!) I think it is important for me to remind myself of how far I have come. Here is a summary for the month of February:

I am really happy to see mostly greens for February. Its a bit odd that I can lose 7.2 lbs in one month ( 64% of my total weight loss) and not see as much reduction in my measurements as I did in my first month. It seems like your measurements should also decrease proportionate to your weight. I wish I could have some expert explain this to me, but I guess I will see them go down eventually. I just can't give up hope, I love the progress I see in my pictures. My tummy is getting flatter, and all of those skin folds are starting to disappear. I think my very favorite part are those cute little dimples above my bum that are starting to poke out - I never knew I had those!

I can't wait to see what March brings!
