Oh HELL no

Stuff is starting to sag now…wtf!?  I’m starting to look like the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth!  At least when I was fatter, it kind of gave it some solidity.  Now, it (being my SKIN) just kind of hangs there.  I lost the fat rolls on my upper, inner thighs…so excited about THAT!  But then, damn if the skin just ain’t hanging there, ewww, really?  I really don’t even know where to begin doing something about this little bit of reality.  I did some brief searches online about it.  Most people have chosen surgical removal…which I (at least today) am against.  I’m trying to take care of my body not hack on it ruthlessly.  Also, I’m still a little over 100 pounds away from my goal weight so I don’t know where I’m gonna end up with this thing but eww, really?  Pale man?  Come on!

Week #15 Results (GAIN)

Height: 5’3″

268.2 lb

0.6 lbs gain

47.5 BMI

TOTAL LOST:  30.0 lbs

I find this unacceptable, even if I understand that fluctuations in weight are all part of being human, this also indicates to me that my caloric input for this week was greater than my output, and I can absolutely believe that.

Met with Personal Trainer tonight:

He is encouraging me to move from the weight machines to free weights and showed me several upper body and arm exercises to add into my repertoire.  I am reluctant to try anything new because what I’ve been doing has worked so well.  I am, however, going to continue on the premise that when it comes to fitness these guys know better than I.  I STILL hate cardio though L
