Today marks the one month milestone of this journey of mine. In this short period (though honestly, it seems like an eternity) I’ve lost about 6-7 pounds. Not bad, I guess. I really shouldn’t complain because that’s a substantial amount. However, I can’t help but think that perhaps the numbers should have moved a lot more, you know? I mean, look at all of those reality shows in TV that involve weight loss. Those people seem to move huge amounts of weight every week. Of course, all things considered, those people are usually way overweight anyway. By comparison, even though I’m overweight, I’ve got a lot of muscle weight. I purchased myself a digital fat caliper a little while ago. By my measurements, I’ve got about 175 lbs. of lean weight. If somehow I manage to keep all this mass, even if I drop to 13% body fat, I’ll still be over 200 lbs. Isn’t that insane? Personally, I think the weight is very stubborn to drop off because I’m sort of in this crazy equilibrium state. I’ve still got a lot to figure out. Maybe one day it’ll just click and I’ll reach the tipping point. Who knows? At one month, it’s still too early to tell.
So, here’s to another month of progress. 2007 is the year.
