12/17/18 Weigh In   Leave a comment

So my weight went back up again.  I was 269.6 last week and I’m 271.4 this week.  So almost 2 pounds.  Not sure why.  I’ve been in ketosis the whole time according to my Keto Mojo ketone meter.  I’ve felt pretty good, and my clothes feel like they’re fitting looser than last week.  I’m not sure if it’s me or maybe the scale.  I’ve decided not to worry too much about the number quite yet though.  As long as I feel good and it’s clear the clothes are getting looser, not just feeling that way, I’m not going to let the roller coaster effect the last few weeks get me down.

Last week my muscle mass was 27.9% and that didn’t change this week.  Pound wise that amounts to a .3 pound muscle gain.  I’m guessing that’s within the scales margin of error so I’m calling that breaking even.

Body fat wise I was 36.1% last week and 36.2% this week.  So basically a pound of body fat gained.  So the remaining .5 pounds must be water weight.

Exercise wise, as I mentioned earlier, I’ve been on point.  I closed all three rings each day last week.  And on three of the days I was at 150% of my move goal for the day.  And on my weekend I got three workouts in each day.  Not sure if the up/down plateau I’ve reached means I need to dial it back or ratchet it up.  I’ll try ratchet it up first as I don’t feel fatigued or burnt out.

Meditation is progressing at its usual slow but reliable pace.  I have added one change I’ll mention here.  I don’t know if I’m being too critical with myself but I do feel I should be doing better about my thoughts not wandering so much.  To help with that I’ve given myself something to focus on.  I downloaded a fireplace app to my Apple TV.  So now while I meditate I play that and can focus on the flames.  I think that’s helping so I’ll keep it up.  Side benefit is it adds a cool ambience to the room when I’m not meditating.

Food wise I’m keeping it pretty keto.  My only thing is I really need to start tracking it better.  I think one of the problems I could be having is I’m guessing on calories from day to day.  I may be underfeeding and that could be holding me back.  I’m pretty sure I’m not over consuming, but can’t say for sure.  I didn’t like weighing everything at first which is why once I got in the habit of eating foods that had the proper macro ratios I stopped tracking.  However, if my progress keeps stalling like this I’d rather deal with the nuisance than the lack of progress.

That’ll wrap it up for this weeks check in.  Thanks for coming along for my weight loss journey this year.  Just two more weigh ins to go that’ll be the icing on the keto cake I’m sure.  Have a great day.
