Weekly Weigh-In

Today's measurements are for twenty-four weeks on plan:
Weight: 169.0
Chest: 38"
Left Bicep: 11.75"
Waist: 34.5"
Hip: 39.5"
Left Thigh: 22.5"

Total weight lost as of today: 69 pounds
Total inches lost as of today: 48.75"

I also finally got my scale to start showing all the measurements that it was supposed to show me from the beginning.  It measures the percentage of my weight that is body fat, water weight, muscle mass, and bone mass.  This is the first time I have seen these numbers, so I have taken the liberty of looking it up on "the Google" to see what is normal for my height and age, and those numbers are in parentheses beside my actual measurements:

Body fat: 33.3% (average is 20-21%)
Water weight: 48.2% (average is between 37-49% for my body fat %)
Muscle mass: 28.4% (average is 36%)
Bone mass: 4.0%

Looks like I have some work to do still!  Next week I will have my numbers again, so I can see how much they are changing from week to week.  It will give me a better gauge on how I'm doing, since my weight loss seems to be slowing down a bit.

(I have another "during" picture to post, but I don't like the ones I took this morning ... I will take more tonight or tomorrow and post it then!)
