Old lady?

Thanks hubby. Love you too. Hrmpf...

Nothing like when people tell "how it really is". Hubby has been very supportive and encouraging every step of my weight loss. He tells me when he notices changes in my body (and with 20 kg lost, there are some changes for sure!). But - last night, he pointed out a huge disadvantage of losing weight fast (20 kg in under 2 month surely qualifies as "fast"). "Honey, you have to start doing some exercise, you are getting all wrinkly!" Oh no! Am I starting to look like an old lady??? According to hubby, I'm getting "wrinkly" not only around my tummy (which I have noticed) but also around my legs.

So this weekend, I will dive into my workout magazines and look for the best body firming exercises I can do at home. Don't want to end up with huge amounts of excess skin around my body!

Any advice?

Weigh-in number 3

Yesterday it was time for my third weigh-in. The numbers were really pleasing to say the least:

On August 31st, the scales showed the following:
Weight126,6 kg
Fat %45,3 %
Fat mass57,4 kg
Total body water50,7 kg

Yesterday, On September 28th, the scales showed:

Weight118,3 kg
Fat %43,6 %
Fat mass51,6 kg
Total body water48,8 kg

To summarize:

Weight-8,3 kg
Fat %-1,7 %
Fat mass-5,8 kg
Total body water-1,9 kg


Weight-20,3 kg
Fat %-3,2 %
Fat mass-13,3 kg
Total body water-5,2 kg

I also filled in the xtravaganza wheel, and I'm doing quite well on all points except the mind training. I just don't seem to remember to listen to the CD - I like those 15 minutes in the beginning of each class, but at home I just don't do it. I've decided to "schedule" these 15 minutes in my calendar, trying to do it at least 3 times a week.

This post is long overdue. I had this weigh-in on August 31st, and the next one is scheduled for Wednesday, so I thought I'd share my last results before it's time to share the new ones!

Total body water54 kg

On August 31st, the scales showed:

Weight126,6 kg

I'm really pleased so far, and having weighed myself at home every now and then, I know that Wednesday's weigh-in will be a good one too! Stay tuned!
