Haha, I know it's bad when Naiad threatens me with the bat of doom.
It's not the problem. I like some parts. Sometimes I even think *gasp* I look fine.
I ain't got no belly rolls, just an hour-glassy shape. My arms aren't toned and it'd be nice is I had some definition in my abs and legs, but other than that I don't look overweight or anything.
Then I go outside and I discover I'm usually the fattest twenty year old around!
-Okay, exaggeration... there are many others but I'm sure they feel as crappy as I do and can't get a date :3
People are just judgy, it's annoying.
The real reason is I wanna get as fast as possible to that magic number, cause maybe, just maybe, it'll make me like myself.
Like I thought I'd feel better at 133, but now I'm here and it's even worse.
Week 1 Results: 134.2-133.8= 0.4lbs; 36.5-28.5-36.5
-0.4lbs is pretty freaking lame. I'm not sure if I've lost half an inch from my hips and waist or I measured it wrong. Even though the instructions technically say I need to measure my waist at the smallest point and that would be the smallest point... I'm not even sucking my stomach in like I did last time.
Measured my thigh too, 1'' lost.
I measured a few times... I kinda didn't eat yet so I probably haven't lost any weight. Just maintained.
I measured my BF%s and LBM via different tools.
Haha, one of them said this:
"Percent Body Fat:**
Lean Body Mass:**
Your weight is in the normal range.
You do not need to lose weight.
Minimum caloric requirements: 1721 Calories per day
Your diet should contain at least 67 grams of protein per day."
The other one said: LBM: 99.1956, BF%25.8
So both methods have completely different indications.
According to the first method I've lost fat and gained lean body mass.
Which, according to my new fitness manual, is: "This is very unlikely to happen, except for genetically gifted individuals (the pure mesomorph) and sometimes for ectomorphs who have highly efficient metabolisms. If it
does happen, terrific!"
–yes... that's very unlikely.
According to the other method I've lost lbm and my bf% stayed the same.
Manual says: "When you lose LBM and your body fat does not decrease at all, this usually means
your metabolism has slowed down and you are burning up muscle for energy; you are not in fat burning mode. This often occurs when you skip meals. Losing lean mass means
that you need to eat more to stimulate your metabolism. Don’t be afraid to eat, and keep
up your meal frequency to five or six times per day."
Pretty freaking confusing, right?
I really don't know... I need to think about it.
