Measurements After Hiatus

Noooooooooooooooo

Well, this is painful. After leaving the diet for several months, I have gained over ten pounds since last May. But this is why we get back on the horse, isn’t it? These will be my new base measurements.

Age: 22
Weight: 135.4 Up 11lbs
Height: 5’1″
Body Fat: 30.62% Up 4.15%
BMI: 25.6 Up 2.1
Neck: 12.75″ Up 1″
Right Bicep: 11.25
Waist: 30.25 Up 2.25″
Around Belly Button: 36.4″ Up 3.65″
Hips: 37.23″ Up .1.88″
Left Quad: 17.5″

Okay, so that’s a lot of red. It’s pretty painful to write this out, to see how much I’ve let myself go. Health needs to be a centerpiece of my life, and these measurements bring me back to reality. Back on the wagon.

So this week I didn’t seem to lose a whole lot except for in body fat… which is actually the number that I care about most. I’m gaining inches in my arms and legs but I am still attributing that to climbing (I AM A BEAST! ).

Some people want graphs. Okay!

Weight loss over time (red line is my goal).

Body fat % over time.

Until later today,

Considering I started my monthly today, I’m not at all upset with these numbers… minus my body fat going up. My guess is that the calculation was reacting to gaining .5″ in my hips, which is (hopefully) all water weight.

I’m off to celebrate belated Valentine’s Day! Happy cheat day, ya’ll!

All I can say is “thank god I’m measuring body fat,” or else not losing any weight this week would really upset me instead of only mildly annoy me. I think that I’m going to cut out the philly cheese steak without the cheese from my diet… I’m pretty sure it’s fried in butter.
That said, I lose 1.5″ in my legs! Whoa! Time to celebrate with CANNOLIS!!
Until later tonight,

Yikes. I can’t believe I have a 5″ difference between my waist and my hips! Gross! Okay, well hopefully those will be the first to go. Either way, Aaron and I went out supplement and grocery shopping today after ridding our pantry of everything anticarb (okay, mostly ridding… we’re saving a few things for our cheat days!). The total bill came to be $150, including all supplements and food for the week (taco salad every day? Get ready…). Tomorrow, we begin. Tonight, we dine!
