Getting Stronger

March 2015 Update: I had a personal goal to get to 135 before my annual Cabo vacation and I did it! And, I recently had my body fat measured using the hydrostatic water displacement method - so should be very accurate - 23.07%!! I'm glad to know that my new home scale measurement, for the most part, in line with these results. I'll probably gain some weight and fat while on vacation but I know it will take care of itself as soon as I get back into my regular routine. Meanwhile I'm still ...
March 2015 Update: I had a personal goal to get to 135 before my annual Cabo vacation and I did it! And, I recently had my body fat measured using the hydrostatic water displacement method - so should be very accurate - 23.07%!! I'm glad to know that my new home scale measurement, for the most part, in line with these results. I'll probably gain some weight and fat while on vacation but I know it will take care of itself as soon as I get back into my regular routine. Meanwhile I'm still working on my legs and booty. Making progress, slowly but surely.

Jan 2015, got a new scale that measures my BF at 27%. I want to try and get down to 25. My weight after the holidays crept back up to 140 - as expected this time of the year. Looking forward to renewing my commitment to lose a few more lbs, get leaner and stay that way!

Update - Since I started eating Paleo/Primal (late June 2014), my weight is slowly moving down. And I can tell I'm getting leaner. Yay!

May 2014....I guess I'm officially in maintenance. My weight has not gone down much since my 30 lb weight loss from Nov 2012 to Nov 2013. I got down to as low as 137.5 but now I'm holding steady between 139 and 142. I'm ok with the weight. Check that - I'm ecstatic with the weight (after being overweight since the third grade, I weigh less now than I ever did as an adult) I just need to lose the stubborn flab around my lower body. My legs have been heavy for 40 years, they are not going to get lean overnight. I'll get there, I just need to be patient. Here is my story: In Nov 2012 I started this final quest to get in shape and lose weight. I was tired of approaching the holiday season knowing that I was probably going to gain 10-15 lbs. A gain that I would then struggle to lose the rest of the year (and failing to do so as I got older!). No more! Thanks to the 3 things I give credit to below, I am at a new place! I am not afraid of the holidays. I know I will maintain decent control, but most important, I know I will get right back to my normal routine and no lasting harm done.

I just noticed that your weight ticker is almost the same as mine (174 - 125). Looking forward to seeing my ticker at the lower end of the range like yours!

Hope you are having a great day!

Thanks for the blog comment! Don't sweat the age thing....I started lifting weights at age 50.....it was awkward as hell. 4 years later, I'm setting PRs, giving advice to 20-year olds, and feeling better than I did in my 30s!

Thanks for the feed comment!

Yeah, I pushed it up pretty hard (knowing that I was going to push it contributed to caving to the donut urge).

This one was my once a month 90-95% max effort where I do 5 sets of singles at 90-95% of my max lifts on squats, bench, overhead press, and deadlift. My combined on squat, bench, and deads was 915 lbs. That was my max effort from last October at my first Powerlifting meet....not too bad to have my previous maxes be my new training weights!

Hope your training is going well!
