This past Monday marked the one-month mark of my exercise and fitness regimen on my #Roadto40. So, much like she did on January 22 of this year, Katie of Precision Athletics took my measurements with the help of some cold and sharp calipers. The measurements only took a couple of minutes: she would name a body part, hook up the calipers to pinch said body part, I would grimace and hold back my tears, she would remove the calipers, and I would pretend it didn’t hurt.
The final results showed some decent progress: in one month I lost 11 pounds, shed 4 inches off of my waist, and reduced my body fat by over 4%.
I knew that I had lost some weight over the month as my watch and wedding started to slide a bit and I moved to the next notch on my belt buckle. My double chin is less pronounced (it’s more like a 1.5 chin now) and both my face and waist are a tad slimmer.
