Monday Weigh-In #2 August 18, 2008

Filed under: bigger loser contest,personal,weight loss — Dj @ 11:29 am

As of 5:05am this morning I weighed in at 196 poundsI met my 2 pound goal for the week!

Surprisingly! I was not as careful with my food as I should of been last week. Saturday I ate over 2600 calories (Cheeseburger in Paradise is my personal weakness!) Not at all what I had hoped for but still managed to pull off the loss.

As I think about it, I’m not sure I’ll make the goal to 175. Not because of lack of willpower, but because of weight gain from muscle. I started weight lifting, and when you put on muscle, you gain weight (the good kind). This is why you often see on the Biggest Loser some people either lose very little or actually gain a little weight.

But the good news is that muscle burns up to 15 times more calories than fat alone. So that’s great news!

    So… you lose it, I gain it? This could be problematic.
