I'm Not Trying To Lose Weight

My aim isn't trying to lose more weight. i guess I have to keep reminding people of that. I know I've written about this before but I still hear the comment "Don't lose any more weight".

Today, someone hadn't seen me for a while and said it. Instead of realizing that I was about the same weight I was when she last saw me, instead she needed to remind me that I don't need to lose any more weight. I don't know why it annoys me when I hear it, but it does. I think it's because I've maintained right around the same weight for over two years now. As my body fat percentage changes, the only weight I lost was a couple pounds (two pounds, to be precise) from my lowest weight. And I've been maintaining this weight for weeks now, of 210 pounds.

And Won We Did!

"And Won!" was our team name from the beginning of the challenge and we had that goal in mind. My teammate Janet Perusse and I won the Northwest CT Fitness Commitment Challenge! It was a long battle this fall, but we came out on top!

Janet really worked hard and lost an incredible 16 pounds during the challenge. Of course, my goal wasn't about weight loss but rather to lower my body fat percentage. We both reached our goals!

Body Fat Percentage Down Again!

I've been working hard, so I knew the numbers would be down when my personal trainer checked my body fat percentage. In my quest for a tighter belly, my trainer wants my body fat percentage lower… the only way to tighten without a tummy tuck.

I did the calculations based on the measurements and it came out to be 13.95 percent! The last time my trainer checked me, it was 15.03. This means, I'm getting much closer to my goal.

The Workouts Are Challenging!

I had a personal training session today and my trainer changed my workout routine. It's not good to stay with the same workouts over and over, so my trainer mixes it up every month or so.

What a grueling workout it is this time. I'm up for the challenge!

Body Fat Percentage Update

I've been so busy with the challenges and personal training class that I haven't had a chance to update the status of my body fat percentage.

My trainer did take measurements with the calipers. I did the calculations and it's down from the last time he checked. A few months ago, my percentage was 16.76. When I figured it out the other day, it was down to 15.03! The hard work is really paying off! I feel a lot stronger and my workout is improving, especially with the class I'm taking.
