Today’s Near Perfect Minute covers a key aspect of a weight loss program that targets fat deposits. I want to lose fat, not muscle or water. So I am very particular about how I lose weight and I perform simple body measurements to track my progress. This week, I lost another 2lbs. No big deal. But at the same time, I also shrank 2.5 inches.
For all of you who are tracking, I am down 10lbs and I have gone from 130.75 inches to 122. By contrasting the relatively modest weight loss with the significant size loss, I know that my body composition is shifting. I have less space-filling fat and more muscles. I like that!
By the way, even with the super cold weather and all the snow storms, I still made it to the gym 6 times this week. How are you doing with your exercise regimen?
Options: Other numbers would be good to track also. If you have access to a high end body fat analyzer, that is great. Some blood tests would be neat also. I am particularly interested in triglycerides level.
Thanks for the feedback and keep sending me news of your progress! It’s fun to do it together!
