It’s Thanksgiving, and I thought I should record my weight loss before I gain a few pounds this afternoon.
I only lost 4 pounds since October 1st, but I’ve made some very significant gains in muscle mass and strength!! So it goes both ways with getting healthier. Just because I don’t lose weight doesn’t necessarily mean I am not getting healthier.
Now I’m able to bench 205 lbs and I’m able to squat 275. I used to not be able to bench more than 150 lbs and I was able to barely squat my former body weight before the semester.
So while I am not losing weight, I can tell I’m losing fat because it came to my attention recently that my cheeks look thinner on my face! So I can tell I’ve lost weight just by smiling now, and that is pretty awesome.
Well, I think I’m going to go gain about 2 or 3 pounds in a few hours. I swear my new tennis shoes (my goal for when I get down to 215 lbs) will never come. lol But I know they will sooner than I think.
For everyone else about to have a happy thanksgiving, don’t let the festivities get you down. Be thankful that you still have the ability to work it all off!
Peace out, and stay on that Journey to Fitness! :)
