I cheated? hah!  
I decided to go ahead and get my measurement over with today. I didn't want to do it Monday, because last month I spent the weekend before my measurement pigging out over at Celine's mom's place. And I'm going to do it again this weekend! It'll be fun :X
Anyway, I'm sure I gained weight from eating all sorts of stuff I don't normally eat, and this weekend will be the same. I guess I kind of feel like I'm cheating, but the computer told me to go get weighed, so whatever. It works? :X

Anyway, no weight loss this month. The scale says I gained a pound :/ I'm a little bummed out about it because I'm very anxious to drop 40lbs ASAP, but it wasn't all bad news this month. According to the other tests/measurements/etc they do, I've gone down another full percent of overall body fat, and lost over 2 lbs of fat this month. This means I've probably gained about 3 in muscle. I'm also burning a good 100 calories more per work out than I was when I started. As far as measurements go, the butt stayed the same size this month, and so did the arms. I lost nearly an inch everywhere else though. Overall, I think this month is the best yet as far as inches lost. I'm still frustrated about the overall numbers not going down the way I want them to, but I can't complain too much as long as I'm moving forward. It's still very frustrating that after 3 months, my overall weight has gone UP 1lb, but whatever. Matt says I should stick with it because it's good for me, not because of the numbers. It's hard for me to disagree, but the numbers are all I care about XD I can say there are slight differences in the way my body looks to me now, but no one's going to notice unless I drop a substantial ammount. It feels more like the body is just reorganizing all the fat to other places :P But hey.. I still haven't missed a day yet. I've gone 4 days a week no matter how crappy I've felt, etc. So I can at least take some pride in the fact that a total slacker like myself has been able to stick with this that long.

I'm still working on somthing to wear to our silly metal concert. I'm making a full pleated skirt out of that stretchy faux snakeskin. I think it will look cool, and with the thick material and stretch, it should fit well too. If I wear my ribbon lace-up ankle boots with those gold leggings and that skirt, I have the botton down taken care of :P I'm thinking about just copping out with my venture bros. shirt club shirt and some arm warmers for the top. And I have no fucking clue what to do with my hair, but I know if Celine comes up with somthing exciting to wear too, we'll be doing cheesey Dethklok whiteface& smeared black makeup

It's hard not to focus on the numbers :( But it really should be about how healthy you feel (because feeling healthier lets you be more active which leads to the numbers goal ;) ) and size. And muscle does weigh more than fat. :P

Man, I swear my shoulders are getting so buff! lol

Really, I have such a large insulating layer of fat, it's hard to see the progress on my muscles. It looks some areas are just getting puffier, lumpier, and weird shaped, but I know that's because there's buff buff muscle underneath. I just need the fat to melt away so I can see it! :X

i just have a phrase to say: fat never gets out where it¡'s suppoused to be.

Ya know, last year i lost a lot of weight (from 65 to 47 kilos and from size 46/44 to size 38), my legs are so fucking thin, so i can't wear boots anymore (just if they're made out of an elasticated material...) and they're pure muscle. but my arms... god... my arms are still like before. Even when i've made deadlifts to death and exercise... that goddamn fat NEVER dissapears!!!

The same goes with my tummy. I look like an african boy... I'm tired of doing crunches... but if you touch inside, my abs are hard as rocks. i want a lipo! ;_;

Haha, I know, right? So far I've lost a few inches here and there, but not the places I want to lose them the most :O
