Week 9 - the week where I was super happy with my progress

Week 9: Monday 8th March - Sunday 14th March 2021

On Tuesday I decide to check in with my statistics on the renpho scales app.  I've now completed eight full weeks of my weight loss journey - so it seems like a good time to see how much progress I've made.

It turns out that I've now lost almost 6 kilos of weight. That's an extra 2 kilos lost since I last checked my progress, back in week 4 - the week where I struggled to sleep.

As well as the weight loss, my body fat percentage has dropped by 2%, my visceral fat has dropped from 12 to 10, and my metabolic age has dropped from 43 to 41.

I'm really happy with the progress I've made so far. Super happy!

Perhaps more importantly than the statistics - in fact, definitely more importantly than the statistics - is the fact that I feel so much better than I did eight weeks ago. Like I said at the beginning of last week, I no longer have to drag myself out of bed in the mornings, my sleeping patterns have improved massively, and I'm generally just feeling so much more alive and energetic again.  If I'm feeling this good after just eight weeks, I can't wait to see how much better still, I'll feel in another eight weeks time.

Closing thoughts on this week

I've still got a long way to go - but the progress I've made so far has fired me up, and has made me feel more determined than ever to keep pushing for more progress and improvement.

Thank you so much for reading this post!
