Postby anom » Wed Aug 29, 2007 11:37 pm

it drives me crazy at times. want to lose weight ...incorporate pump classes and free weights. other people have said i have lost 'alot of weight' but when i weigh, i havent! in fact i've probably lost 4kgs despite dropping a dress size and feeling way fitter than i did before.

how much muscle am i gaining? argh!

you may well be gaining muscle which would 'hide' your fat-loss since your weight won't go down but you are exchanging fat for muscle. You could try taking measurements of key body bits (say arms, thighs, waist, hips) so you can track your progress that way.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Oh...... I am so sorry it has only shown up as 4kgs on the scales, I know it's hard.

I measure myself....... I see the inches disappear.

Also, I get the % of body fat measured at the gym every six weeks. Can you do that?

I really don't know enough about this topic to comment. All I know is that the weight will come off and that you are doing an amazing job with working out.

Keep your chin up!

I cannot wait to read your success story!
