|I feel like you are looking at me naked!|
Boy, did I disappoint myself.
I was a mere four pounds lighter at my latest appointment. My lean mass went up by two pounds. My fat mass went down by four pounds. Not sure how that math works out... My body fat percentage went down a whopping 1.3%. Once again, I can't blame anything on being big boned. My bones weighed in at only 6.2 pounds.
I realize that, like the scale, these numbers don't define me, give me purpose in life or really mean anything. But it sure is disappointing to feel like I am making an effort and not seeing results. I don't know what number would have made me happy. Perhaps this was something that will always be a set-up to feel disappointment. The one thing I've learned in life is that having expectations is a sure-fire way to feel disappointed as things usually don't go the way I planned.

The one cool thing is a virtual-me was created as part of my latest appointment with DexaFit SF Bay Area, located in San Carlos. If I do lose some fat and go back to get re-scanned, I can watch virtual-me change as well. It's kind of fun! I am watching my food a lot more carefully again, and I know I'm not supposed to expect weight loss, but part of me is still hoping. My focus does remain on being strong, not getting thin. And my chaturanga continues to get stronger! That is pretty exciting.
Have you ever tried to measure your body fat? How did you do it and what did you think about the process?
