I’m not sure I want to put this out there, but, it’s time to record some starting measurements.
The scale is hard, because it can make or break my day. It can completely derail me, or send my flying high. (Have I told you I’m usually an all or nothing dieter???)
Progress, Not Perfection
But, part of my transformation is going to have to be mental, and the scale needs to become a tool. Just like the tape measure and the body fat analysis tool.
They’re all tools, and that’s part of my mental transformation.
Weight Loss, or a Physical Transformation, is 80% Mental
So, as a form of measuring my progress, I will weigh in weekly, check my measurements monthly, and do a body analysis every 6 weeks.
Another thing to note, different body analysis machines are going to give me different results.
When I went to Kvell yesterday for my body analysis there, I compared it to the one from NutriShop. They were totally different.
The NutriShop one will get wonky if you’re not hydrated enough and will not measure correctly. Thus, the body fat percentage was significantly higher on their body analysis.
The Kvell scan was super cool.
You strip down to just your underwear and it does a 3D rotation scan. So cool!
Then it calculates your measurements, body fat percentage, how good your posture is, and such.
I’m only going to have access to their body scan scale for 6 weeks, while I do their challenge, but I think a starting and ending analysis will be super cool.
Okay, now to the not so pleasant part… at least this is my starting point.
- Body Weight: 176.3 lbs
- Body Fat Percentage: 37.16% = 65.5 lbs
- Lean Body Mass: 110.8 lbs
(I don’t feel like these are true starting stats, since I started the beginning of last week, and I’m already down, but I think these are a good start.)
- Bust: 39.3 in
- Waist 36.7 in
- Hips 45.7 in
- Biceps (R): 13.9 in
- Biceps (L): 13.5 in
- Thigh (R): 27.6 in
- Thigh (L): 27.0 in
The other cool thing this scan did was tell me that I burn 1449 cal per day if I were at rest. That is good to know and I can calculate my meal plan around that.
Well, that’s all for today.
