I weighed myself and measured my body fat percentage when I began Slim in 6 last week. Ryan had to help me because I couldn't figure out how to work the stupid scale. Helping meant he had to be standing right by me while I did it so he could make sure I did it right. Nice. It wasn't at all embarrassing or anything.
I was NOT happy with the numbers I saw. Gross. I could have consoled myself with a donut, but I didn't. Instead, I let them motivate me and I've been working hard. Really hard and every day. I know. Amazing. I've been producing real, actual sweat when I work out and I am already seeing results.
I weighed myself again this morning and am already down 3 pounds and have lowered my body fat percentage by 1.5%. I know that weight can fluctuate up or down a couple of pounds from day to day, but it's only gone down since I started. I know this because I've weighed myself almost every day since I started. There's been no fluctuation. It's only been dropping at a rate of about a pound every couple of days. I started on Wednesday, Friday I was down 1, Monday another 1 and today another 1. I don't know if this is the normal, average amount. I'm sure it has to slow down at some point. I hope it doesn't. ☺ Losing 1 pound every other day would be amazing.
I hate to say it, but sensible eating and regular exercise really are the answers to weight loss and healthy living. Great. Guess I'll have to stick with it if I want to maintain.
