Well, the weight loss results are in at least. I didn’t make it to my goal of 130 for the trip, but after getting my body fat test re-done today, I have learned some valuable information. The original goal I had of 130 was actually too low. Had I starved myself and not built any muscle mass, I bet I could have reached it. My body fat went down by 3.9% which now puts me in the “normal” range for my height. AND I love that the weight that was lost was FAT and very little muscle. I plan to keep up the intensity until I reach my goal. My new goal of having a fat mass of 20lbs. No more weighing in on the scale for now (ha, who am I kidding, I’ll still be on it everyday). I just want that body fat % to keep dropping.
Here are my results after one month of dedication.
Weight: 143 135
Body Fat: 27.6% 23.7%
Lean Mass: 103.53lbs 103lbs
Fat Mass: 39.47lbs 32lbs
Whoo hoo! That means I’ve lost 7.47lbs of PURE, DISGUSTING, SQUISHY, SQUASHY FAT! So should I go to Vegas even though I didn’t hit the mark?
Today I went to the allergist who tried to do a skin test on me, but I was too “reactive” all over. They said they’d have to take blood instead. Blood yesterday, and more, lots more, today. Awesome! I’m sure I’ve lost at least another pound in blood.
His diagnosis: I’m either allergic to something or have some sort of virus that is causing hives. Really? You think? I just thought that it was normal to walk around looking I got attacked by a raccoon. Not my best look, let me tell you.
I can only imagine how AWESOME I will look stuffed into in my slightly too small bikini, all pasty white, covered in scratches and blotches. I meant to go shopping for a new bikini. I also meant to get a bikini wax and a spray tan. Vegas is SO not ready for this show!
