I swear I'm still here!

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Hey everyone,
I haven't posted a blog in a very long time and I'm sorry for that! I do update my status at least a couple days a week, but I can't seem to write a blog that often.

Anyways! I need help. I've been going to Curves for about 4 months now. I've lost inches but my weight hasn't budged. I figure the number on the scale isn't moving because of the muscle I've been building. Here's the thing: last week I was weighed and measured... The number on the scale didn't 'move... still 147; I lost a total of 1 inch... .5 on my thighs (FINALLY!) and .5 in my waist; Body Fat percentage... +2% emoticon emoticon emoticon


How does this happen? I've found one forum where other women have had that happen too. I have yet to find an answer though. I did find out that using a bioimpedance (those machines you hold onto the handles) is very inaccurate. Do you have any ideas why this happened?

How have you been doing?! Please share emoticon

    I don't know about the body fat. I do know how it feels when the scale doesn't move for months. When one is exercising and eating well and the scale is punishing them. Hang in there the scale will move eventually.

    Yeah, unless you have a really expensive BF% body-pod, measuring body fat is really hard and inaccurate. I'm sure you've lost more bodyfat than you think.
