Cowabunga! Wowza. Big loss this week. I never know why I sometimes lose big and why I sometimes gain or lose small.  I didn’t really do anything different eating-wise or exercise-wise than I have in the past. In fact, I didn’t get to the gym that much since Spring Break has difficult hours, and I couldn’t walk as much thanks to the neverending rain. I will say that the times that I lose big tend tend to be times that I’m happiest, and I am pretty happy right now with how things are going in my life. I’m not sure if it’s a cause or effect, but there seems like there might be a correlation.

It’s hard to complain when I’ve had such a good week, but I really feel like this body fat percentage measurement is fairly inaccurate and inconsistent. It seems to be good when I think it should be bad and vice versa. Oh well. It serves some sort of purpose I guess.

Well, here’s hoping next week is just as good!

Back on the weight loss train! I’ve been seesawing a lot more this year, but that’s to be expected I would say. This is now officially Spring Break starting tomorrow, and I’m planning on getting some serious exercising done. Or some serious fun. We’ll see! Things are definitely looking up at the moment, I would say.

So close, yet so far away! We’ll break out of the 220s next week.

I bought a couple new suits yesterday.  Well, actually my mom bought them for me.  Thanks mom!  I purposely bought the jacket a little tight because a) jackets are rarely buttoned since I’m usually sitting down and b) I’m going to lose more weight so it won’t be too tight for much longer.  When I told the salesperson she was a little skeptical of me losing weight.  I’m sure they hear that a lot.  But my mom preceded to tell my story and then she was making all sorts of suggestions for bringing it in when it starts getting loose.  Not bad.  At some point I’m going to bring in my old suits to see if they can be salvaged, but I think they might be too big to alter them to my current size and not look odd.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Close to cracking under 220!  We are officially back on track.  This week was good because I was a lot stricter on eating than normal.  I didn’t get out to the gym as much, but I didn’t let myself snack as much.  Which is good, because I’m going to be snacking away today whilst watching the Superbowl.  I’m not a huge fan of the NFL (maybe that will change when LA gets a team), but I do enjoy watching the Superbowl.  Even, when like today, I couldn’t care less who actually wins.  I wouldn’t mind watching Tom Brady lose, though, so if I have to root for a team it’s be the Giants.  Really, I just want to watch a good game with some awesome commercials.

I’m still not to sure about the body fat % measurement.  Oh well, as long as it stays similar we’ll continue to go with it.
