The Results Are In

My Get Fit final screening appointment was last night.

3... 2... 1... !!!

As I've indicated before, my weight hadn't been changing so it came as no surprise when I weighed in at 2/10 of a pound less than when I started the program in January. What DID come as a surprise was the change in my body fat percentage. I went down almost 8%!! Even though my cholesterol was good to begin with, it went down 6%! My BMI stayed the same. Even though I am "overweight" according to the height/weight charts, the nurse said she's happy with where I'm at.

Overall, I am very pleased with my results. Now if only I can maintain the routine!

In May, my employer is offering a similar health screening so I'm looking forward to seeing if anything has improved/changed.

(Nancy, HOW are you doing with the exercise? Hint. Hint. LOL)

Waow!!! That's great ;) Eventually the weight will come off if you don't give up your routine ;)

That would be.... NOT yet..... I have tomorrow off and then the weekend to figure something out. We had a birthday lunch at work today, so I had to have a slice of brownie cake, but just had an egg for dinner tonight. I figure that was a fair trade-off.

Congratulations!!!!!!!

Sometimes it's not about how much weight you lose; it's about improving your overall health.

I'm so proud of you!

Nancy said...

What great results from your hard work & devotion to improving your health!!

Only a few more days until the work insanity calms down for us, huh? I am SO looking forward to everyone going back to being quiet & grouchy, instead of very vocal & grouchy! *lol*

Contratulations on doing so well on the evaluation. It sounds like you've made wonderful progress. Sticking with it, it will be interesting to see how much more improved by May you are. Your new project with the Whisper floss looks interesting. Can't help with any suggestions though on fuzzing it up as I haven't done that with any of my projects.

Congratulations on doing so well with the get fit routine.

I'd never heard of the whispering floss thing before. It looks really interesting.
