I’m getting really excited to get “weighed” tonight! After zumba, one of the trainers is going to do my body fat/muscle measurements. While I wish I had something to compare to, I’m really anxious to see where I stand with my muscle mass.
I know 8 months ago there was not a lot of muscle mass on my body. I’m also really interested to see how close I am to a healthy BMI by that measurement. Right now, I’m still considered obese. Only by .8, but still… That number is down a lot from where I stared. I started with a BMI of 43.6 and am now at 30.8.
That being said, I am wearing the same size I wore in high school, but am still tipping the scale at about 25 pounds more than high school. I’m working out 3-4 times a week and know that my body make up is totally different than it was when I started.
If it actually happens tonight, I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m a little nervous that it’s going to be higher than I expect but I just have to remind myself it’s lower than it was.
According to my weight, I would have to lose more than 36 pounds still to be a “healthy’ BMI, so it will be really interesting to see where I stand.
On another note, I finally got my 75 pound barbell at Weight Watchers today. I got there before July 4th, but then had a gain (which still kept me at over 75) but just didn’t have the funds to make it to a meeting. I finally did today, and while it might just be a small dangle on my key chain, I so thrilled!
