Last week with the approaching 4 Week Weigh-In and Karla’s statements that there might not be a big change in the scale, I decided that I was going to rejoice in any, big or small, changes that I saw. I knew that somethings have begun to shift because the way my clothes were fitting. Well, there was a 2% reduction in body fat and 5 less pounds of me. How fantastic!
Today I went to see my physician who has a machine that calculates body fat, muscle mass, and cell hydration, this machine is called a BIA (BioImpedence Analysis). I’ve been having a BIA done since 2006. Today’s BIA compared to a year ago I have lost 6.7 pounds of fat, and gained 2.2 pounds of muscle. Which puts me back to where I was in 2006 except with an extra pound of muscle. That is monumental! Don’t get me wrong, I still have issues. But it so so encouraging that in a matter of 4 weeks to see such changes that is enough to keep me going.
Despite any groaning or bellyaching I do during the workout, I look forward to each session.
Thanks MommySTRONG, you’ve made a difference in my life.
