horrible results this yr
I fasted for 19 hours after a major burger and fries binge.
Weight is up to 303
Scale Fat % says 38%.
Together those say I have less Lean Body Mass than last yr. That I would doubt; but I know a little fluctuation of the fat % on those scales is inevitable.
All of that is no surprise
What was a surprise:
BP: 159 / 79.
I have only tested it a couple times in 3 yrs and not since last yr. It's never been over 130. I'll be looking at that again later today, and more frequently. I'm not particularly stressed before the test.
They have really shot back up. They were ovedr 200 18 yrs ago, and 141 last yr. That's the only data points I have.
LDL and HDL essentially the same as before LDL down 18, Total up 5, HDL no change.
What is the gap between HDL, LDL and Total.
32 + 128 <> 211.
My dad has better cholesteraol numbers than I, but otherwise, I dont recall. That is, I dont think I can blame genetics 100%.
Last yr, I had gone on a serious diet in October, losing 16 lbs. This fall, I've done nothing like that. Practically giving up on a weight loss contest with my dad. Who by the way has quit smoking for ~8 weeks now. So he wins either way.
When I revisit this thread http://www.exrx.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7679
I see the genesis of the rationale I've had to keep eating. Even though several of you noted to clean up the diet, I just wanted to hear (do) the get stronger part. When I did go to far last yr and lose 16 pounds and 20 pounds off my squat, that further deterred me from focusing on calories.
I'm just a sorry undisciplined sap.
Lets see if these numbers wake me up.
The nurse who reviewed this with me did suggest I eat less sat fat and less eggs. And less fried foods. I nodded.
Like Doc said it's a marathon.
But I need to be going in the right direction, at least.
