June 2010 Summary

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

I gained a pound!

I did manage to journal every single bite that crossed my lips every single day of June. I've got some good data to analyze.

The" Calorie Differential Over Time" report shows my calories consumed firmly in the center of my Exercise calories.

Either I don't really burn as many calories during exercise as SparkPeople thinks I do or SparkPeople has miscalculated my BMR.

Bottom Line: I need to eat less. My average calories consumed in June was 1830. My goal is to trim that to 1730 for July.

Waist: 33.5 (-.5)
Hip: 43.5 (No Change)
Thigh: 24.75 (+.25)
BraLine: 33 (+.5) This is the measurement that's going to get me into that VeraWang gown again. But, not at this rate.

    Quite welcome :) I hope that the tape measure is kinder than the scale. The tape measure personally scares me because of my size (I have A LOT to lose to get me to a better number that still isn't good, but I'm not giving up).

    Thanks for the reminder SLUBERINGLOTUS! I took my measurements June 1. I will revisit the tapemeasure tomorrow morning.

    That is true, maybe you should add measurements too your tracking. You may have gone down in inches.

    Thanks, and nice try, Karen!
    My scale also measuress body fat. I've got an Excel spreadsheet with daily details going back years and years. My lean mass stayed the same (112ish pounds), but my body fat is up to 48ish from 47ish in May. I've been working out aggressively for almost 20 years, it's not likely I'll see much change in my lean mass - except for the occasional 4 pounds of bloat from an indulgence in pizza and beer.
    There's no denying it's a pound of fat.

    What about the adage that "muscle weighs more than fat"? You sure have been working out hard and consistently, Matilda! Bravo!
