Well, I made it through this morning, jumped on the scale, and it was 166.6! I was concerned because last night’s “debaccle” involved me eating more bars than I should have because I was just soooo hungry! I learned that I also replaced 2% of fat with muscle, so my “body fat %” is down to 36, a new low 🙂 If you’re wondering “What is body fat percentage?” here’s the wiki on it:
So, I weigh 166.6, 36% of which is fat, so…59 lbs of fat, yarg! Essential fat is 10-12% (so I have an excess of 20% of fat leftovers kind of. “Average” is 25-31% according to the wiki, which I am having a hard time with, as me losing 6 more pounds will put me into “average” but I doubt it’ll drop my body fat THAT much…so anyways, of my 166 pounds, about 16-20 pounds of that is “essential”, divide the difference, 59-20=39 lbs of fat I can realistically get rid of…to me that’s nuts, my goal is 135, only a 31 pound loss, I’ll suck up the 8 extra pounds of fat I think and consider myself “lucky” to be that size!
Will I ever be a pant size 8? I’m not sure. I thought that 10 would be my goal, but I’m squeezing into those, and an extra 30 pounds below that would HAVE to be at least one pant size…right?
