All right, week #1 is complete, and it was a good one!
To give some context for those who haven’t read my original post, I started off this 60 day challenge on October 23rd with the goal of going from my current 16% body fat to 12% percent body fat (about 10 pounds).
As of the start date, I was 71.5 kg (157.3 pounds) with a 185 cm waist.
I did the official weigh-in and measurement today (November 1st). I’m currently at:
70 kg (154 pounds)
183.5 cm waist
So that’s 3.3 pounds lost and 1.5 cm off my waist. In just over 1 week. In other words, a slam fucking dunk.
A couple observations. I had a good week. A REALLY good week. I was on the ball, and even on the weekend, I managed to keep things in check.
But 3.3 pounds is still a shit ton of weight for someone at my level of leanness to lose in just 1 week.
First and foremost, I need to point out that weight doesn’t come off in a linear fashion. Sometimes you can go for a while on a diet and lose nothing- and then wake up the next morning 4 pounds lighter.
I suspect that’s partly what’s happened here. The day after I started (October 24th) I weighed myself in to discover that I was 71 kg (1.1 pounds lighter than the day before).
So I suspect that “delayed weight loss” skewed the numbers in my favour this week.
Still, the fact that I was able to drop an additional 1 kg (2.2 pounds) this week is fucking awesome!
