SGX Journal C4W6D2 (SGX Update)

Thoughts: Heh…I’m so late now with my 4 week photos that I’m just going to go ahead and shoot for 6 week pics at the end of this week. Progress on SGX has been very slow to be honest. I am going to keep at it though, because a) I said I would (and I’m an extraordinarily stubborn wench–I stuck out four whole years in the US Army because I swore the oath at MEPS, even though I didn’t REALLY mean to go that far, :lol:) and b) the first four weeks haven’t been clean enough for me to make a fair assessment of how effective the program is for me.

Here are my stats for the first four weeks. I’ve only dropped a pound, but the good news is that it was nearly 100% fat instead of the usual mix of lean mass and fat that usually occurs when I cut. Also, my chest, shoulders and arms are actually marginally BIGGER!!!!! Hips and waist are a bit smaller. My knee got bigger (??) but I think I measured in different locations.

Also, here are my caliper readings from February:
Skinfolds from 2/3/2005
Tricep: 11 mm
Suprailiac: 12 mm
Thigh: 15 mm
Ab: 16 mm
Body Fat: 17.467%

I’ll get today’s reading up in a bit. I need to run home, get my towels into the dryer, grab some packaging tape so I can mail some packages off to my sister and a friend in Cali, retrieve an issue of Hers, take a quick pic of my JSF logo shirt, and make myself some cherry Jello, heh.

UPDATED Caliper Readings:

The Awful Truth:
1. Erm…meal 5 turned out to be a slice of carrot cake, but that was the last of it. Calories were still on target.

2. Almost done with laundry.

========
Short-term Goals:
1. Find some more fish recipes.
2. Find some more recipes in general that work with SGX, particularly snacks/desserts.

  1. Hey maggie! love your blog. To be honest, I can’t wait until you are done with sgx so maybe we can learn a little bit more of what you were doing…!

  2. I’ll trade you a Tilapia recipe for a scallops recipe I tried last night! 🙂 I’ll email it to you…
