For the record

I don't normally weigh in more than once a month, much less, two days in a row.  But, given the fluctuations yesterday, I bought new batteries last night and weighed in again this morning.  I showed 211 and 26% BF about 4 times in a row before I decided that the batteries fixed it.  A 1 pound fluctuation is not really much to jump up and down about but I am going to use that as my comparison for next month.

April 1 weigh in

Slow and steady may when the race for the tortoise, but it is not as inspiring when it comes to weight loss.  I am fairly certain my scale needs new batteries in that it first showed 177 and 18% body fat.  It then went up to 216, back down to 209 before settling on 212 and 26% for several in a row and a set of "new" batteries. I must admit that the "new" batteries were batteries found in drawers with no way of telling whether they are fresh or not.

So, I am going with 212 and 26%.  That has me at 55 lbs of fat and 157 lbs of lean weight. I am down 2.5 lbs fat and up about a half pound of lean weight.  At this rate, I will be 6 more months getting to 200.  April will be an improvement.
