FFF Challenge After W8

So. I didn't get around to weighing in or measuring after week 7 as I was headed up to the snow. I did weigh & measure after week 8 on returning from the snow & while I was lucky enough to have the scale weigh remain the same, I put on 4.5 cms over my body.

Measurements (Starting after week 1):

Waist (Belly Button): 88cms; W2 85cms; W3 82cms; W4 83cms; W5 81.5cms; W6 81cms; W8 81.5cms

Pot Belly: 94cms; W2 91cms; W3 90cms; W4 90cms; W5 91cms; W6 89.5cms; W8 93cms

Butt (broadest part): 108cms; W2 105cms; W3 104cms; W4 105cms; W5 105cms; W6 104cms; W8 104cms

Bust: 97cms; W2 95cms; W3 96cms; W4 96cms; W5 96cms; W6 93.5cms; W8 94cms

This week: +4.5cms!!! oops. Most of it pot belly. Bloated??? Much!!!

Scale weight was the same: 63kgs
Total lost since start of challenge: 2kgs

Exercise has been fairly non existent as I've been sick with a very snotty cold. Other than attempting to ski last weekend, I made it to Pump this Wednesday & also managed a bit of tready & bike before the class.

I have fallen a bit behind in my goals - I was hoping to weigh in at 61kgs after this week! Hahahaha that is not going to happen!

I did test out my fat calipers last night & according to the chart that comes with them I am at 24% body fat, which puts me in the Average or Fair category. Lean or good appears to be 16 - 20%, so I am going to aim for 18%. Of course my reading may not be that accurate, but it is a starting point & so long as the % decreases, I will be happy. According to a formula I found, my proposed body weight to acheive this is 58.39kgs! Looks like I need to review my goal weight.

I also did Plumbing Boy's measurement as well & I think he was a little shocked that he has a higher % than me, considering all the dirt bike riding he's been doing of late, I think he expected to be leaner. Perhaps he'll be cutting back on his nightly garlic bread!!!

Anyhoo. Here's what I've been feasting on if anyone is interested!
