Fat Fighter

Fighting fat one calorie at a time!



Tales from the scale

I’m currently 218 lbs, which is the lowest that I’ve been since at least January of this year.

I have faith that the fat will reduce;  I’m doing all the right things (most of the time). But in the end, you can’t out-train a bad diet. I think a few tweaks to my diet and drink more water and I’ll be doing really well. Continue reading “Tales from the scale”


Started out good and healthy, ended not so much.

Today was a confusing day, success-wise.  I started out rockstar mode: I got up at 4:20, had coffee, and went to the gym and did all but 1 exercise of my weightlifting routine.

Last week, I began taking my body fat measurements with a skinfold caliper too. I don’t expect to see a drop in those numbers on a weekly basis. It would be really nice, but I don’t think it’s realistic.

I weighed in yesterday, and was not happy, but that’s okay

I weigh in only twice a week. Once on Friday mornings, and then one additional time any other day that I choose during the week. I do this because if I weighed in more than that, I would become obsessed with the scale. The natural, daily fluctuations would play with my mind and it would be counter-productive.
