FINAL 2013 maintenance weekly progress report: week #49
Week #49 of my 2013 maintenance program is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. This will be my final maintenance progress report of 2013!
My scale weight this morning (as measured by the EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale) is 174.4 pounds. That’s a -0.2 pound change since last week’s weight of 174.6 pounds, and a 0.0 pound change from my initial 2013 weight of 174.4 pounds.
My 7-point body fat reading this morning (as measured by the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Caliper is 7.2%. That’s a 0.0% body fat change since last week’s body fat measurement of 7.2%, and a 0.0% change from my initial 2013 body fat reading of 7.2%.
Over the past week I’ve lost 0.01 pounds of fat and lost 0.19 pounds of lean mass; since the beginning of 2013 I’ve gained a total of 0.0 pounds of fat and gained a total of 0.0 pounds of lean mass.
My tape measurements (as measured by the MyoTape) show no changes over the past week. Since the beginning of 2013 I’ve gained a quarter inch to my waist and a quarter inch to my hips while all other tape measurements have remained the same.

I’ll be taking a couple weeks off starting next Friday, so this will be my final maintenance report of 2013.
Well, isn’t this interesting? I’m literally at the exact same scale weight and body fat percentage as I was at the very beginning of the year (January 7, 2013)! I’m going to give myself an “A” for this year’s maintenance program: not only did I successfully maintain my weight and body fat percentage, I did it without counting a single calorie or depriving myself in any way. For someone like me, whose natural tendency is to go “all or nothing”, successfully maintaining without micro-managing my diet is definitely a satisfying accomplishment!
