Ok so I am going to provide everyone with my results and explain what my next step is in this process. I am very excited about all this.
To start though let's go back to where I was 6 weeks ago. On January 9th, 2009 I had my first weigh in and measuring. At that point my weight was a whooping 200 pounds, my impedance (resistance) was 502, and my measurements were: Neck 33cm, Shoulders 108 cm, Abdomen1 89cm, abdomen2 102cm, glutes 114cm, right thigh 64cm, chest 96cm, calf 39cm, and bicep 35cm. My body fat percentage was 37.3% which calculates to a total of 74.3lbs of fat on my body (gross!). My lean body mass was 124.7 meaning I had a 1.7:1 ratio of lean body mass to fat ratio. That being said the calculations show that I had 11% excess fat on my body.
My goal was to go down 20lbs. I didn't quite make that, but I did drop 13lbs in my 6 weeks. My long term goal is to get down to 169lbs and 26% body fat for a healthy body. I would even like to drop down to 160 lbs, but that could change based on the muscle I gain which may keep my weight up, so I am not as concerned with the number on the scale as I am with the size of my wedding dress.
So my weight was down ~13lbs( this weight fluctuates during the day, so at the time of my weigh in I was at 191). my measurements read like this; Neck 33 cm, chest 89cm, abdomen1 81cm, abdomen2 95cm , glutes 108cm, thigh 61 cm, calf and biceps were the same, shoulders 103 cm. That equals a total of 15 inches lost during the 6 weeks. My body fat percentage is now 31.3% for a total of 61 lbs of fat which means I lost 13.3 lbs of body fat but I did gain 7 lbs of Lean body mass. So I am now down to 5% excess body fat on my body (yeah).
So there you have it those are my results and I am very happy with them. I can now fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes, so I am looking forward to continuing my lifestyle change to fit into those other clothes that I was wearing when I first started dating Adrian.
I plan to continue with One to 1 fitness doing the group work out classes, as I get closer to my wedding date I may look into changing my workouts so that I can work one on one with my trainer just so that I can keep on my path to healthy living. I am very much enjoying this journey that I have taken, I am so glad that I did and the trainers at One to 1 are amazing. If you are in Red Deer and looking to make a healthy change, stop in and join my class you won't regret it. I look forward to sharing more results with you in the future!!! I will post some pictures soon!!
