Some Conflicting Data

I am getting some conflicting data quite frankly. Let me explain. I am not to weight until next monday, but I will admit that I have not been as on course eating wise as I would like. It hasn't been a shamble by any means, but with Slimmer for Summer challenge coming up, I am looking to change my evening snacking habits by way of the challenge, if that gives you any indication of where my problem area STILL lies. However, I am still active and working out a bit more strenuously with the weights and have began to concentrate on getting my core in good shape with three different types of crunches and weighted squats now. I still run on the weekends, and from 5 in the morning til 7 in the evening, I am good diet wise, it is that damn 7 o'clock mark that screws me every time! So anyway back to my conflicting data. I would think that given my malady, I would be standing still at best. Well without a weigh in, I can say this. I have a pair of shorts that I bought that are a 32 in the waist. When I bought them, I hadn't reached onderland yet, and they were snug. They fit, but I knew they were there the whole time I wore them. Now, they are a little loose in the waist. I went on a shopping trip about a month and a half ago with Kathy and while out, I bought me an Aeropostale shirt, cause I have always wanted one and there was a sale at Aeropostale. It has always fit me kinda snug when I first put it on then kinda loosened up after I wore it for a bit. I wore it yesterday and it was not snug when I first put it on. In fact, most of my shirts are starting to be a little looser on me, and they are all larges! So I can't weight to get a number on the scale but what if it hasn't gone down. Like most of us, I count on that number to define my journey. I am not sure if I could realistically be ok with a higher number even when evidence shows I am trimming up in inches. Anybody got any input on this?

  1. If you are gaining muscle and trimming up, yes that could definitely be happening. A few months ago, the scale wasn't moving but I was clearly changing shape as I was buying smaller clothes!

  2. Well, soon you will be in law school: the evidence indicates body changes, whether the scale illustrates it or not. I go with the evidence. Your body is responding in other ways now, to all that weight you lost and of course your ever increasing exercise. Great work, my man!

  3. You're exercising like crazy so you're body is still changing. How much more are you looking to lose? I would just continue to exercise and eat well. If the scale feels like cooperating then good. You're building muscle which eventually will burn the rest of the fat away too. That's what I need, some more muscle! Keep it up!
