I had a lot of breathing trouble with the wet weather. I don't get enough oxygen, and then I'm super tired all the time. And so I was on hold, weight-wise, for about 6 weeks, but it started moving again in the past few days. I think it's also because I figured out I needed to increase protein. Still not having enough variety, but that's for a couple reasons that aren't entirely fixable just yet.
Here are numbers I posted 6 weeks ago:
So today I weigh 125, hips 37 (a problem area for me is just below there,) abdomen 32, waist 27. My brown striped dress fits better, and my jeans are too big. Here's the thing. I'm still about 5% too high on the fat meter. Obviously, losing 3 pounds through sugar reduction and vigorous walking isn't going to make any part of me toned. But I'm losing 3 more pounds anyway, over the next 6 weeks or less. And starting around July 7, I'm going to make getting really toned and strong the priority. I am not likely to add muscle weight, but if I do, that's certainly fine by me. Just no more extra fat; I want to get to 22% and stay there, or even drop a bit if I get in really good shape. For my age, going below 20% isn't really necessary, but I don't want to add any more for a good long time.
There's no reason I couldn't get the belly down to more like 30, if I really work at it. And I can take an inch off my waist, probably. But that's for then. I got a trip to take this week, and a busy few days after that. I'm not stressing about food or weightlifting until that's all past.
I am back to my "me" bra size; 34C. I lost a bit of fat off my back, and that's a nice thing; it really feels better.
