Progress Update - fairieluv77 - 07-24-2012 07:37 AM

Hello everyone,
Before starting EM2WL I was netting around 1400 calories per day working out 5 or 6 days per week (usually twice per day). I started EM2WL around 8 weeks ago and upped my calories to 2250 per day. Then a couple weeks later I started NROLFW. I just finished Stage 1 of the workouts and thought I'd post an update. I'm doing NROLFW at home so I really wasn't expecting much in the way of results.

Here is my info so far:

Weight at start of EM2WL - 187
BF % - 38.6
I calculated my body fat percentage by putting my measurements into the Military Calculator and Covert Bailey Calculator and averaging the two. Funny thing is that my scale came up with the same number. I'm sure this probably isn't the absolute best way to do it but I figured it would be better than nothing!

Weight at start of NROLFW - 181.5

Measurements at start of NROLFW:
Natural Waist - 35 inches
Waist at Naval - 42 inches
Waist " below Naval - 45 inches
Hip - 46 inches

About 2 weeks into my workouts I gained 2 pounds making my weight 183.5 which remained the same throughout the remaining weeks.

Measurements this morning after week 6 of NROLFW:
Weight - 181
BF% - 37.5
Natural Waist - 33.75 inches
Waist at Naval - 41.5 inches
Waist " below Naval - 42.75 inches
Hip - 45 inches

I know these are not huge changes but these were made while eating 2250 calories per day, limiting cardio to 2 or 3 days per week and doing my lifting workouts at home. I bought a FitBit 2 weeks ago to get a better idea of my TDEE (which is averaging 2400 per day!). Last week I started using the FitBit calorie recommendations to lose .5 per week so I've been eating an average of 2140 calories per day. This past week of eating hasn't even been the greatest either. I've been busy and not cooking at home as much as normal so I was really surprised to see any change on the scale at all.

Sorry for the long post!
I'll update at the end of Stage 2!
