R5 Day 4 120 ( +.1, +3.3 LDW)

Meh! Day 3 and essentially the same as yesterday. I had tomatoes for the first time during P2 and this morning I could hear the chatter in my head wondering if that could have caused the lack of loss and then I could hear the clients I've counseled asking similar questions... and then I heard what I've told them, which is that this is normal. Granted day 3 is a little early, however I have very little to release. I'm practically within my range, and 5-10 pounds from where I'd like to end up with 17-21 days to go.

I suspected I wouldn't have a loss given how heavy my tummy was feeling. Not sure what that's about. Anyway, I'm not concerned.

I just got my NEW fancy dancy scale! It's the one we use at work. It not only weighs you, but it also calculates the following:

Omron HBF-514C

Body fat%
Body mass index (BMI)
Skeletal muscle%
Visceral fat level
Body age
Resting metabolism
Body weight

I've watched clients get really excited even if losses are slow because they are able to watch their body composition totally shift.

I didn't have time to try mine this morning before coffee so I'm waiting until tomorrow. I'll be very curious how it differs from the scale in my bedroom.  Here are some other images:

Off to check on you guys!

Ooooh, that is fancy. Where does one purchase such a device? I just have the kind that has the foot sensors, so less accurate. None the less, I do get to see my body comp change and that rocks!

OOOOOH I want one like that too. Thats even fancier then my sisters. Going to look now because I think that would be lots better then driving to town all the time for me. You are going to rock losing this time. Go girl go.

I'm glad you had a perspective on today's weigh-in- You have already come so far, given that you only have 5-10lbs to lose the whole round! There's no question that you are going to make your goal, just be patient with your body as it releases the pounds. It WILL happen-

That is one snazzy scale! What doesn't it do? Wow! Right now, I don't really want to know my body fat make-up, as I think it might play with the mind-game I'm having with myself. However, as I get closer to my goal weight, I think it would be a wonderful tool to have.

love you!
