We’ve had only 6 training sessions up until today. We’ve been sore the next day after every one of those sessions, although not near as much as that first one. I’ve been sticking to the diet at least 98% too. We did get to have one 6 hour window this past week where we could eat and drink anything we wanted. Yippeee! We chose Saturday evening since we had some family coming over for dinner. Everything we made for dinner was actually on the diet, the only thing we did do was eat a fat with a carb. And we did drink alcohol. I stick to wine, and I did have a few glasses. Stayed up late and felt pretty good the next day, just a little tired.
OK, so now it’s been two weeks since we started the weight training and diet program. I weighed this morning and got a nice surprise … I’ve lost 4 pounds! I thought that was very good since I should be gaining muscle too, and we all know that it weighs more than fat. So, considering, I think 4 pounds in a couple of weeks is great.
We went to our training appointment this afternoon, and it was measuring day before our workout. Our trainer Boyd took our measurements again with the tape measure and the pinching fat calipers. Those little suckers hurt sometimes, LOL. But I was even more pleasantly surprised when he was finished.
Here were my results:
Lost 9.5 inches all over, 1/2 inch off my neck, 2 inches from chest around shoulders, 1.5 inches from my chest, 2.5 inches off my waist, 2 inches off my hips, 1/2 off my arms, 1/2 inch off my thighs.
Then Boyd figured out that I had: lost 2.6% body fat, added 1.95 lbs of lean body mass, and lost 5.95 lbs of fat.
Wow! I was ecstatic! I had really been sticking to everything pretty well, so it’s paying off. YES! It’s about time!
