Bri's progress

Post by Bri3626 » Mon May 21, 2007 7:53 am

Today is the big start!

Weight- 205
BMI- 27 Overweight classification
Waist to hip ration (WHR) - 1.02 heart disease risk elevated. should be under 0.9
Waist- 42 inches (holy crap!) :oops:

Geez its amazing how this can sneak up on you. Fit most of my life and went to pot the last 7 years. And I counsel patients regularly about diet and exercise. No calipers to measure body fat but I bet its 20-25% range.

I actually found my calipers. Decided to post just for "the science" of it. Basically, though, I'm going by how fit I'm getting in the WOD's. I did two different measurements:

Jackson/Pollock 3 = 24%

Tape measure = 31%

Big difference between the two eh? Tape is fairly inaccurate I think. I'm a pencil neck so my ratio is automatically higher. Anyway I'm just going to use this as a measure since we use it in our organization.

2 other very simple strategy's

1 measure around the belly at the navel and simply use that as a way to watch progress works well

2 jump up and down in down in front of a mirror, anything not used for reproduction that bounces is excess fat.

I just want to note that method number 2 does not apply to women. :)

I'm going to use em just as reference points for this but for me seeing the waist disappear will be enough.

90% of this is you just keep coming back especially after the initial excitement wears off.

Keep at it Bri, you're not alone out there and you're head and shoulders ahead of those who don't even try.

We are all pulling for you - keep at it :D

Thanks guys. Appreciate the encouragement. Interestingly enough I weighed in yesterday and gained a pound. I'm figuring thats probably a little more solid weight as opposed to fat gain. Two people said I was looking a lot slimmer.

Gonna keep reading my quote every day heh and make it mine.


Lets see also did 5 pullups pretty easy on L2D3 right off the bat the other day. Little bit of a struggle on the 5th one but I didn't want to fatigue out. Did it in the rain too so that presented a gripping challenge.

So all in all progress is going quicker than I thought. I was struggling at two and went to five easy in a couple weeks. Hard to believe so much time can pass so quickly and you can get unfit so fast.

You know when I left the Marine Corps in 1985 I was doing 17-20 pullups easy and my 3 mile run best time was 19:28. I run about a 10 minute mile now.

I'm going to continue this program and test myself in about a year and see how I do (if I stick with it that is).

Can't say enough how much I like your site and ideas. Thanks.

The tape is allot better than the scale, you are probably putting on some muscle with the progress you are repoting and muscle weighs allot more than fat.
