Weigh-in Wednesday + Progress(!) stats


First of all, thank you guys so much for all the support and kind words on my last post.  Your comments put a lot of things into perspective and really got me motivated to continue strong on this journey.

Starting weight: 176.4 lbs.
Last week weight:  130.2
Current weight:  128.4
Current loss:  -1.8
TOTAL LOSS:  -48.0

Today's weight almost puts me back at my lowest March weigh-in two weeks ago, and even though I was hoping to be lower than that, I'm totally happy with it.  Lots of food was consumed this past weekend during Easter so I was expecting the weight to be about the same as last week... but that's not the case.  =)

Moving on to my stats.  I had measurments done with Trainer L at the gym yesterday and here are the results:

One month difference.

So why the exclamation mark in the post title?  Because according to the body fat %, I GAINED some muscle!

130.0 lbs. x 31.2% body fat = 40.56 lbs. of fat and 89.44 lbs. of lean mass
128.4 lbs. x 29.8% body fat = 38.26 lbs. of fat and 90.14 lbs. of lean mass

Heck, it's only 0.7 lbs. but it's still 0.7 lbs.  

All the other times I've been measured (roughly every month by Trainer L for the past two years!) the pounds of fat and lean mass decrease together so this is the first time EVER I've shown a muscle gain (thank you, LiveFit program)!!!

Huge, huge, huge NSV!
(And it came at the perfect time after my pity post.)

I swear that all of my extra muscle adds like 10lbs to me. But I seem to forget that when I'm being down on myself :(
Keep it up!

NEver minimize a loss. You're already pretty slim at your weight, so losing that much, to my mind, is really great.

I admire how you really work at this. I really do!
