Another weigh-in before breakfast this morning. Here are the results:
Weight 83.6 kg (184.3 pounds)
Body fat 38.4%
Body water 44.7%
Muscle mass 29.9%
Body Mass Index 27.0
Basal Metabolic Rate 1508 kcal
So I'm still losing weight on my calorie-controlled diet at the rate of half a pound a day (actually 6.4 pounds in the last twelve days), my body fat is decreasing, my body water is increasing, my body muscle is increasing, and my BMI and BMR are both going down. I feel fine, and I still have the strength to lift medium-sized sheets of chipboard (just!).
And I still have some kind of figure. The vital statistics this morning were:
Bust 108 cm (42.5 inches)
Waist 88 cm (34.6 inches)
Hips 103 cm (40.6 inches)
My target pre-op weight is 80 kg (176.3 pounds). I therefore need to lose another 8.0 pounds, and at half a pound a day that's 16 days: 11 February. By then I hope that sensible eating habits will have been permanently learned, and I can maintain or even improve on my 80 kg. After all, some girls are very much less hefty than that!
The only downside to all this slimming is that I have to readjust the seat and steering wheel settings in Fiona now and then, as I change shape. Tsk!
