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.
