I'm Being Awesome And No One Can Stop Me, Except Illness

In case you didn't notice or were confused I decided to go ahead with not posting on the weekend until Immortal Space is back up and running. I didn't have many ideas for weekend posts and I still read posts made over the weekend, I just won't be writing any for the foreseeable future. It really is strange to think that for over a year I posted every day and now I only post three times a week. I guess it's just a sign of how far I've come that I don't have all the time in the world to dedicate to this stuff.

Anyway I was at the gym last Friday and it was a review session. What happens is that when you first join the gym they take your measurements and your weight, so you have a starting point. Then every month they do the same thing again to see the difference. While I did technically gain in terms of actual physical weight it seems it was either temporary weight, muscle mass, or I'm pregnant. I've not quite ruled out pregnancy just yet. But anyway the main point is that I have a slightly trimmer figure as I have lost 10 centimeters (which is just under 4 inches) from my waist.

I can confirm the rumours are true, I have lost weight. The guy measuring me even said it was the single greatest loss he'd seen, which made me feel pretty damn good. It also goes to show you that scales are evil. If I had just used the scales, and saw my weight had gone up, I would have been in pretty bad shape. As it was I feel sick but motivated. Being sick also has nothing to do with going to the gym, I just got sick over the weekend.

In closing:
In other news: It's July already.

  4. Congrats with the waist loss, it sounds like the weight gain is muscle mass.

  6. Damn that's really awesome! And yeah, it's weird when you start getting more muscle mass, and it seems like your progress has stopped, but really, you're still losing fat, the weight is just being counter balanced by the muscle. So keep up the good work!

  9. Yes, it's July and my physical is only 10 days away now.
    That didn't seem like such a problem when I made the appointment back in April.

  10. That's great. I guess having the support of some experts at the gym really does make a difference. Great story, Mark!

  11. If you lived here, we could go to the gym together. In truth, the gym scares me.
