tr90 Day 15 Check in

Sunday, September 06, 2015

While I'm not a fan of trying any "weight loss program," I did find one that had some great recipes and a fun tracking challenge. It's no different than Sparkpeople really, just printed in a book that's on my desk so I look at it and its a motivator.

Soooo. I figured, 90 days of tracking, I'll try it. Didn't use any of the supplements or follow the meal plan for the first 15 days, just to be able to compare.
Day 1
5'6"
192.8
BMI 32
Body Fat 44.02%
Upper arm 14.25"
Chest 40.25"
Waist 39"
Hips 45.25
Thigh 27.5"
Calf 16.25"
Push ups 13 Modified
Crunch 20 *pain starting at 10 (switch to ball)


Day 15
Weight 191
BMI 30.8
Body Fat %: 40.71%
Upper Arm 13.5
Chest 39.5"
Waist 38"
Hips 43.25"
Thigh 26"
Calf 16.25"
Pushup Modified 27
Crunch 26 (pain at 18 switch to ball)

So what I see is that while the scale is not moving, the rest of my body is changing. So I'll continue on. I am going to try the tip of drinking a full glass of water with my vitamin supplements that the Dr. ordered 15 minutes before my meals. We'll see if that helps to curb the appetite (I did remember to do that on Friday before I gave into my MUST HAVE GREASY BURGER craving and couldn't even finish half of what I purchased. Let's see if it's a fluke.)

Dr. also wants me to get my protein intake higher. I tend to fall short on that. Going to try adding the TR90 "TrimShake" powder to my morning smoothie to see if that helps bring that up. If it does help, then I'll spend days 30 to 45 working on how to bring that protein level up to what I need without using a powder mix. I prefer not to use soy products.

    I had that happen, too. Very little weight loss but inches lost. It's all to the GOOD. Eventually the weight will catch up because of all the extra muscle you are building.

    P.S. I think you've got the Arm/Chest dimensions wrong. Just left out the Arm and didn't put in the Chest.
