Day 56

End of Week Eight – 15th September
+0.1kg (+0.2 lbs) weight gain

Total weight loss, to date
10.3kg (23 lbs)

So, a tiny weight gain this week of 0.1kg as I move into a new phase of this fitness reboot. Merely losing weight was just the start.

Having now completed nine gym sessions in ten days, there is a clear trend of increased muscle mass – which has accelerated three fold over the past week compared with previous weeks. Whilst weight loss is still a goal, it is now combined with muscle gain.

So I’ll be tracking body mass metrics more closely, along with weekly measurements of key body parts… chest, waist, biceps, quads, etc.

Following quite a gruelling 60 minute session at 0815 this morning, Matty the PT has given me the weekend off. I’m off to my parents so that works out well.
