paperiniko's Journal, 19 September 2012

Kept similar trend to the last 2 months, higher burn rate and higher calorie intake. On Avg I ate 2686 kcal over the period and created a nominal deficit of about 27500 kcal which corresponds to about 18000 deficit if accounting for usual BM overestimation.

Still I would have expected a drop bigger than just 0.9 kg. It is possible that I added some muscle and water since my fat according to my BIA scale has gone down considerably to 24% (from 26.6%).My LBM has gone up 1% to 36%.
Of course the BIA is not accurate, I think I am still way over 25% body fat, probably closer to 30%, but so far it has been good at showing the trend. I have lost 2 cm on the waist so that might confirm the theory of fat loss higher than weight loss.
Still despite all this I can't help being a bit disappointed for the lower than expected weight loss. It is quite silly but old bad habits are hard to die.
I am quite glad I keep weighing only every 2-3 weeks, so I keep a good feeling of the general trend and do not get too distracted from weight variations.

Today I will also go to get tested with the BODPOD to see how far off my scale is at estimating fat %. Probably a waste of money since also the BodPod is not perfectly accurate, but I am curious.

For the next two weeks before my trip to the US I want to try to lower my avg calorie intake to about 2100/day to create a slightly higher deficit that allows me for the extra calories I will certainly consume while hanging out with my friends and attending at least 4 dinners and receptions.

More on the Bod Pod later
201.5 lb Lost so far: 59.1 lb.    Still to go: 45.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.
