Eek! This is the first time I’m putting any weight loss progress photos on display (for everyone to see and comment).
Because I don’t use scales, taking pictures of myself wearing my goal jeans (size 8) has been the most important way to document my progress .
I’ve taken a set of progress pictures two or three weeks apart, starting on March 27. The latest pair was taken on May 23. The slideshow shows only my first and the most recent pair of pictures.
I actually have more pictures, but I really don’t want the whole world to see me wearing just bra and panties, from every possible distance and angle. 🙂 (It’s a shame, because it’s easier to see my progress in those pictures…I’ve followed closely how I my “back rolls” shrink).
Taking progress photos has been an ideal way to track my weight loss. I’m able to see exactly where I’m losing FAT. That’s something scales can’t tell you. If you’re only following numbers on a scale, you lump together everything from gains in muscle mass (good thing), losses of muscle mass (bad thing), temporary bloating, plus fat loss and fat gain.
In my opinion, weighing yourself is not a the best way to track your weight loss progress.
I obviously still have time to go before I’m able close that zipper. 🙂
Week 23 Workouts
On average, I walked 10,040 steps per day. I had one low step day (6,903) I spent sitting in a car. Otherwise the week was pretty normal for me.
- 5 x 40-45 minute walks
- 1x 50 minute Nordic walk
- 2 x 30-40 minute kettlebell workouts (plus other stuff)
I’m planning on buying a new online fitness course at the moment. I miss a proper workout planned by a real fitness expert. I also wouldn’t mind gaining more strength and sculpting my body in a more systematic way.
