That’s the meal plan this week, Monday to Friday I eat this. I’ve been going 2.5 weeks now and as of my last measurement (I measure myself every Saturday Morning before cheat day starts) I had lost 4 inches from my navel and another 2 inches from my hips. I suppose it would be beneficial to explain my body composition. I had the opportunity to use a machine we have here at work that measure your body composition of skeleton, muscle and fat. My skeleton mass weighed in at 138 pounds. I was telling this to Sean and I typed in “so I really am big boned…lol.” he was kind enough to reply back “. . . that's what she said.” That’s a great example of our relationship. LOL! Anyway aside from my skeleton weighing more than a supermodel, it broke down what I could lose to reach about 10% body fat. Basically my results came back that it’s feasible for me to lose up to 43% of my torso weight and a couple percentage points in each of my arms about Basically .5% in each leg. Most of this I already gathered but it was…interesting/nice to have that confirmed in a way. So you may be wondering what I’ve done with weight loss. Honestly, I have no clue. I made the mistake of not weighing myself until after I had started and I was wearing boots and had pocket full of wallet, phone, keys etc. So I decided to skip the weight until after the first month and then start fresh with a weigh in and go from there. One last interesting thing is I DID measure my resting heart rate. The heart rate on the 10th of January was 73 Beats per minute. When I measured it 3 weeks later on the 31st it was at 66 beats per minute. (I do try to measure everything at the same time to give myself a reference and checkpoints.)
