Diet Progress

Body Measurements Over time1 Diet ProgressI hit a milestone today. It’s an arbitrary one in many ways but satisfying nevertheless. When I weighed myself this morning I clocked in at 174lbs. That puts me at the absolute upper end of normal weight and takes me out of the overweight category (BMI just below 25).

I say it’s an arbitrary milestone because I know I’m still carrying a significant amount of excess fat (mainly on my stomach) and I’m looking to lose 6-9lbs more before I might consider myself done. Still it is nice after just over 3 months (94 days) to officially not be overweight.

And so naturally I ran the numbers to see how my stats look so far. On average I have lost 0.25lbs per day since I started my diet and exercise program and just under 0.1% in body fat each day as well. If I was to continue at that rate I would hit the lower end of my goal weight in just 36 more days.

I won’t unfortunately because my weight loss has started to slow down. Which is to be expected at this point. Though it may be time for me to change things up a bit.
