okay ladies, i am back. I left sometime around thanksgiving because i had been traveling a whole lot and did not have access to a computer. Between thanksgiving and Christmas (and the traveling the two caused) i totally fell off the horse, gaining everything (7 lbs) i had been working to lose since September. I am fighting to get back on and stay back on--and i think i found my motivator. I got a scale that tells percentage body fat. I weigh 155 right now, but the scale says that i have somewhere between 34 and 36% body fat. I think this is absurd. According to this measurement 55 lbs of my body is fat. that leaves virtually no body weight as mucles.
did any of you start off with a really bad percentage body fat for your weight?
if so, how did you change it?
i am starting some exercise classes through my university in the middle of march ( 1 night yoga, 1 night kick boxing, one night stretching and toning, and 1 night water aerobics per week.) i am just afraid that any progress i make will be totally undone by my lifestyle habits...i dont live a sedentary life, i am a waitress for crying out loud...i probably walk a few miles every night that i work!
anyhow, sorry to rant...i am just a little perplexed at how unhealthy i am realizing myself to be....and at how small my frame must be under all this fat...
