Hundred Pushups Update: Better Posture

After only a few pushups sessions, I awoke one day and realized that I already stood a little taller. The pushups are working muscles in my chest and back which are pulling my shoulders back and improving my posture. I can’t wait to see the results at the end of this challenge!

Day Eight: Tuesday Weigh-In

The scale said 215 this morning. The other day it said 214.5, so when I logged it in Lose-It, it tweeted “I’ve gained .05 pounds,” when really I appear to have lost 5 pounds overall. I know in the beginning of any weight loss program, you lose a lot of weight right away that’s not necessarily fat. But that’s ok, any little budge of the scale is encouraging to me!

Another thing to remember: you may be gaining muscle mass (yes, even from walking), and since muscle weighs more than fat, you may see an increase in overall weight even though your clothes are fitting better and your body is beginning to shrink.

Keep it up!
