It's that time of the year again, you know the time when many of us lament our out-of-shape selves and seriously start thinking about getting in shape. Last summer I lost twenty pounds. I hit a plateau so took a break and effortlessly gained back some of the lost weight. This is very unfortunate because I still had ten pounds to lose.
This is the down side of living in the east coast. The winters are harsh and the days are short, as a result many of us take in more calories while not getting enough exercise.
Well if you fit in this category you're not alone. On a high note, if we all make the necessary changes now, we may all be fit by June. It's possible.
Where to begin- weekly weigh-in's
It's been a while since I weighed myself, so earlier today I dusted off the scale so it's ready for use. There was a time when I let my clothes gauge my progress, but I find being accountable to a scale provides much more motivation. I use a scale that gives additional info: such as muscle, fat and water weight, I'm then able to get a more accurate picture of my progress, or lack there of:(
|EatSmart GetFit Body Fat Scale|
For the last couple year I've been using the EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale. It's a user-friendly scale that provides all that extra, but well-need information. What did I do before not knowing my muscle-mass or my water weight? I'm spoiled.
The scale retains information for up to eight people. The 'P2' on the left represents person 2. The 7.0 pounds on bottom is bone mass. The weight above, 117.6, well, that's my goal weight.
