How’s that for a freakin’ weight loss? Dang! I’m super excited about this. I have less than 10 pounds to lose to get to my original goal. 4.8 pounds is crazy, but what’s really crazy is that I’ve now lost almost 120 pounds in 40 weeks! Yahoo!
As you can see, I am using a new scale. But don’t worry, I checked the two scales against each other, and they matched; so I think it’s safe to say that the loss is accurate. The other thing this scale does is measure my body fat %, my BMI, and my Estimated Calorie burn. Now, I know all of these numbers probably aren’t accurate, but the important part is that they’re consistent. And they all factor into my new loss-tracking plan. I’ll start tracking my weight, BF%, and measurements. Since I’ll be at my goal soon, I’m planning on focusing on losing weight more slowly (maybe to hit 225 pounds eventually?). In order to keep myself motivated (since I won’t be losing the weight at a 3lb rate forever), I’ll be trying to see the progress in a different form. And I think that will keep me motivated. So the new numbers will be essential.
Anna and I are off to breakfast and a movie this morning (I love going to movies early in the day–way fewer people), so I’ll post my measurements later on today. I’ll just be updating this post, so you’ll know where to come for more info.
Have a blessed weekend!
