Apples and Oranges

Friday, November 08, 2013

My last profile was 10/24, three days into this three week program. On 10/24, according to their profile, I weighed 150.0lbs. Today, before my workout, I weighed in at 144.6. After my workout, it read 143.2. Apples to oranges comparison, I know, as the profiles are done after work and these weights were taken right after waking up and then the other after my post-workout shower. It still makes me feel pretty darn good though. A six pound loss in 3 weeks would be awesome to show. I have two more days to go, so I can do it. I just have to be disciplined and determined enough. :)

Next week I start my month long DTP (Dramatic Transformation Principle) program. I have to radically change the way I eat (going from 1600 calories max with a lot of restricted foods to almost 3000 per day) and the way I train. Heck, the first day is leg day and it includes 300 reps on a leg press! I look forward to it, but I am also completely intimidated.

I have come to realize that I MUST put my scale away on Monday. I am supposed to gain muscle and this will, most likely, show as gains on the scale. At the very least, it won't change my weight. I am going to update my measurements on Sunday and pick a pair of jeans to use as "control" jeans. Sounds crazy, probably, but as long as those jeans still fit the same, I should be okay mentally. :)

I will update with my profile info and measurements on Monday.

Have a great weekend!
