This is my first, official weight loss progress report for spring 2012 with the first comparison pictures (below)
According to my weigh ins, nothing much has been happening, except confusing fluctuations in weight! In the beginning of April, I weighed 71.1 kg and a week after that 70.6 kg, but after that I have gotten “odd” results –my 4th weekly weigh in last Friday showed I’m 71.7 kg.
71.1 kg (1) – 70.7 kg (2) – 71.2 kg (3) – 71.7 kg (4)
I don’t think I’ve *really* gained weight (as in gaining more fat) – because I’ve had a rather consistent but small daily calorie deficit. And if you check my first set of comparison pictures below, you can see that my belly fat is melting. My jeans feel loose too.
This isn’t really surprising to me.
I know from previous experience how poorly your weight can reflect actual weight loss when you lose weight very slowly. If you only follow scale numbers, nothing much seems to be happening and you go crazy. 🙂
If I didn’t take the comparison pictures – I would be pretty upset too.
I also started the FBB-program in April, but it’s hard for me to say whether I’ve actually gained any lean muscle mass or not. I doubt that can happen very fast. I DO know I’m stronger already.
The one thing I’m sure about is that I’ve lost some fat.
On the other hand, I could be doing better – I’d really like to have more pronounced fat loss. I wonder whether I’m ready to give up the almost daily chocolate habit to shave off some extra daily calories (~12o cal) ?
