Rick43's Journal, 12 August 2008

It has now been 2 years since I started this journey (August of 2006). So I’ve posted my before and after picture as my new image. Start weight was 210 lbs. and 30% body fat (that’s about 63 lbs. of fat overall). Now I’m 197 lbs. and 17% body fat (that’s about 33.5 lbs. of fat over all). So, I’ve lost 29.5 lbs. of fat and gained about 17 lbs. of muscle in 2 years. Unfortunately, I’m now at a point where the gains are coming very slowly. I’ve only lost 2% body fat in the last 6 months, and that’s with working out (lifting and cardio) 3 to 5 times per week.
197.0 lb Lost so far: 3.0 lb.    Still to go: 17.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Your explanation of weight and body fat help me get a better understanding of where I want to be. My weight is not bad but I suspect my body fat is. Thanks for the motivation. I just recently started working out with weights so that should help. You are looking great! Thanks for sharing.

You look great - Rick. My husband has a similar profile. We are proud of you! The important thing is good health! Keep the faith!

WOW! That is amazing! I know that when I went to Curves to work out, they would measure me once a month. They kept telling me over and over again that muscle weighs more than fat so you can't go by your 'weight' to judge success. Your picture proves it! Great job! =)
