Wow – this week I saw some incredible numbers on the scale, inches lost, and some other cool stats on my weekly weight loss weigh-in.
This was a bit of a test week. I decided I would lay off the fitness which included cycling and walking and see how the numbers changed during my next weight loss weigh in. Technically on Ideal Protein you're aren't supposed to be exercising hardcore or else you'll gain muscle and not lose as much fat.
I typically will eat back the calories I lost during exercise. For example I'll where a HRM and if it says I lost 1,000 calories during my cycling, I'll eat back approximately 1,000 calories in good foods that are “legal” on Ideal Protein.
Last week (week 26 weight loss weigh-in) I had a gain on the scale, but my fat mass went down and lean muscle mass went up. I suspected it was because I had been hiking, cycling, and walking a lot that week.
So this was a test week to see how the numbers played out when I stepped on the scale for my weight loss weigh-in.
I'm going to try it again this week (although I just went cycling yesterday) and see what we get.
I've been lax about updating my Food Journal the last couple of weeks. Must be the sun I haven't seen in 9 months! I'll try to do better as it does keep me more focused and in tune with what I'm putting in my mouth.
Progress Stats have been updated so you can see exactly what areas I lost this week.
Crazy! Incredible! Fantastic o!
Those are my words for the change I've seen since starting Ideal Protein protocol.
Check this out.
My fat mass weighed 136 lbs when I first started and now it weights 75.9 lbs! Incredible!
Here's another “check this out” – inches lost:
Arm – 4.25 in EACH arm!
Chest – 7.5 inches
Waist – 8.75 inches
Stomach – 10 inches
Hips – 10.5 inches
Thigh – 7.75 inches in EACH thigh!!! Wha?? Crazy!
Calves – 3.5 inches in EACH calf
I think I'm more in awe of how much I lost in my arms than anything else, but then everything else is crazy too! Just crazy. I keep saying it's amazing what you can do in 6 months.
Main goal to get to 124 lbs. My cycle chick has MADE it past the half way mark!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!
4th Mini Goal is to be at my lowest weight in 18 years – 170 lbs.
