The Results are in

Body fat measurement test was a success!  I hesitate to get too excited for it because it almost seems to good to be true (although Paula, the pro, assures me that my numbers are completely achievable and healthy). 

I did weight, girth measurements and body fat.

My weight stayed the same.  I’m not upset about this since weight loss isn’t my goal. 

My girth measurements went down slightly although my waist is down an inch!  Yippee!  A part of me doesn’t want to believe this because (1) it’s great and (2) a different person measured me.  I can’t help but think it’s a difference in people that affected my measurement (in terms of where they measured).  However, I’ll agree that it probably went down since my pants are fitting quite comfortably these days.

My body fat went down 2.2%!  So – I’m at 18.8% and officially in the “athletic” or “fit” range.  I’ve already hit my goal!  Now I just want to maintain this.  Again – I slightly hesitate to truly believe such a figure only because of the difference in people who measured me BUT Paula is a pro and I trust her.  I told her about my fears but she assured me that this type of loss was completely feasible.

She also did some magic calculations and determined that I had lost 2 lbs of fat and gained 2 lbs of muscle.

I am beef cake!!

Okay, not really.  But I feel good.

Here are the results from my last measurements compared to today’s measurements:

As of 3/13/2009 (30 days into the program) I was at:

Weight: 137

Body Fat: 21.1%

Girth Measurements:

Arm: 10 inches

Waist: 28.25 inches

Hips: 37.25 inches

Thigh: 19.5 inches

As of 4/9/2009 (60 days into the program) I am at:

Weight: 137

Body Fat: 18.8%

Girth Measurements:

Arm: 10.125 inches

Waist: 27.75 inches

Hips: 36.5 inches

Thigh: 19.25 inches

So that muscle gain?  Clearly it went to my guns.  And no you can’t buy tickets.

Now, if one more person poops on my parade by making a snide comment about my goal of losing body fat % (not like my goal is very high.  It’s 3.  Just 3.  Not 10.  As much as I hate my period, I’d still like for it to stick around so that I feel normal), I will punch them in the face.

My fist.

Their face.

My fist in their face.

Oh yeah.  Fear the fist… because I’m beefcake now.

  1. Woo hoo! Go you!!!

    Thank you!

    Wow I’m impressed. It’s 90 days right? I’m thinking I might have to do it this summer – I have high hopes for getting back into shape since I won’t be in school!

    It’s only 90 days! I definitely think it’s worth a shot. I think it is easy to push yourself when you have a program to follow.

  3. Go you!!!!! And then there’s me, up 10 pounds since the wedding. Sigh. Now excuse me, I have a couch to sit on.

    Ha! Don’t feel bad – this whole whipping myself into shape has more to do with my depression of entering the last year of my 20s!

    Go head Kim put ya guns up, put ya guns up! (In my best Baltimore club music rendition ever!!!) lol

    Congrats Kim…That means you have over 500% less body fat than me.(Arrrrgh!) No hate over here…lol

    Oh please! You look fabulous and you know it. I’d trade my 2.2% body fat loss for your boobs!!

  5. Rock on! I’m so impressed with your dedication to this.

    Thank you! I just hope I make it through this until I run a marathon (or at least I seem to believe I’ll be able to do that sometime in the next year!)

  6. That is awesome!! Congrats!

    Thank you!

  7. Paula is TOTALLY a pro.

    I’m glad you agree. Haha!

    Congrats Kim. That is fantastic. Remind me to stay on the good side of those killer guns!

    I will try to use my power for only good. 🙂 Too bad that I’m sure I STILL couldn’t beat that one girl from our bootcamp class in a run.

    Katie? Puh-lease…that girl is superhuman! I’m still fuming over the 120 mountain climbers she did HURT! I nearly had a heart attack doing my measly 70 perfectly well!
