Weigh in

Another half pound gain.  Yet I’m not unhappy about it.  Why?  Because other areas are seeing the benefits of this new lifestyle.  Take a look at what my SW consultant posted on FB the other day:

It's not just weight loss

I can tick all of those.  I run further, the red jeans that I bought that were very tight are now loose enough not to irritate when I sit down, the inches are going (slowly), it won’t be long before I’ll have to have my wedding ring resized, and I have way more oomph than at almost any time in the past 10 years.  And as an added bonus my body fat percentage has fallen 2% in the past 6 weeks or so.  I’m just all round happier.

I’m doing longer run periods without stopping and, when I have to walk for a while I’m walking less.  Muscle is being built, which is denser than fat.  A pound of muscle takes up less space than a pound of fat.  To put it another way a litre of muscle weighs more than a litre of fat.  So, because my fat is going and being replaced by fat my inches are going down but my weight is maintaining/increasing slightly.  Yes I am looking forward to the scales moving downwards again BUT it’s not the only thing.
