Why is it that the weight comes off soooooo much slower than it goes on? How is that fair? I know, I know, no one ever said life is fair.
I did lose another 1.5 pounds, according to my weigh in. That was on my old crappy scale that only measured to the nearest .5 of a pound, not my new *fancy* scale that measures to .1 of a pound. AND measures BF (just as inaccurately as my old scale) AND tells me my BMI (in case I didn't have access to the bunches of BMI calculators to be found on the internet) AND tells me my "max calories" that I can eat to maintain my currently body weight. And I have to say....that was the most entertaining of all. Apparently I can consume about 2300 calories to maintain my weight. Yeah, right. I think that's how I got into this mess to begin with. "I'm working out a lot, I can eat whatever I want."
I'm about 5 pounds from what I *think* my goal weight is. I have yet to figure out what my racing weight is, according to Racing Weight, because I have to determine my actual body fat percentage. I still haven't been able to fit in an appointment to get dunked and I don't trust either my trainer who pinches me with the calipers (which shows a much higher than realistic BF percentage) nor my new scale (which shows a much lower than realistic BF percentage). Maybe I could split the difference?
But I am on the right track....slowly.....slowly....getting there. And when I get there I'm eating a big 'ol pizza to celebrate!
Just kidding........sort of.
