My scale weight this morning is 195.2 pounds, and that’s just shy of a 1/2 pound net body weight loss for the week. This past Friday I wrote about scale weight at length, and today my tape and body fat measurements will support what I wrote on Friday. Let’s go over my findings…

First of all, my tape measurements were very encouraging! Over the past week I’ve lost over 1/4″ inch from each my waist, my thighs and my hips. My arm and calf measurements both increased slightly (not quite a 1/4″) while my chest and forearms are about the same.

My body fat measurement this morning is 10.8% (as measured by the Fat Track PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers), down from last week’s 11.5%. That means that this past week I lost approximately 1.4 pounds of fat, and gained 1 pound of lean mass.

This just goes to show that scale weight alone is a very poor indication of progress. In light of this morning’s results, I will not be making any changes to my diet or training. My progress has been good!
