Woo. And Hoo. And I did the math correctly this week, too.
I was getting a little nervous about making 230 by Halloween. I think I've got a pretty good shot at it, now. I'm off all of the blood pressure medications for now--we'll see how that goes, but I'm hopeful that I'm off of them for good--or at least for a good long while.
Anyway, I had my third "body composition analysis" this week. The numbers are really, really good:
|Today, October 24th||August 11th||Difference|
|Weight:||231.3 lbs||274.5 lbs **||-43.2|
|Lean body mass||167.6 lbs||177.0 lbs||-9.4|
|Body fat mass||63.7 lbs||97.5 lbs||-33.8|
|Body mass index (BMI)||31.1||36.9||-5.8|
|Percent body fat||27.5%||35.4%||-7.9%|
** Yes, I gained 5.5 pounds in the week from my first Body Composition Analysis (274.5 pounds) to my first visit with the doctor (279.0 pounds). A last fling, of sorts.
Oh, yeah. I got another ribbon--my 40-pound ribbon. (Snookums likes the ribbons.)
