Weekly Summary for the week of January 18, 2010

Either weekly summary reports aren't working anymore on "LoseIt" or I'm doing something wrong. The first week it worked perfectly but now not so much.

As of this morning my weight is 173. My lowest weigh-in this week was 171.5. I am keeping track of this information in a Google spreadsheet which I may or may not share at some point. I should be getting my new body fat scale this week and I want a place to track that percentage. I know that these things are not 100% accurate, but I feel like they should at least have some test-retest reliability, so it will give me some way to track my progress besides just in pounds.

Hope everyone has a good week!

  1. Hooray for the new scale coming. And, you are right..they are not necessarily as accurate as hydrostatic weighing...but..who could do that every week? The good thing about the body fat % is so you can see the "trend"..up or down, etc. I would suggest using it at the same time each day under the same circumstances. Hydration will affect the reading. So, if you weigh first thing in the morning..before eating or drinking anything...then you will have a consistent number each time. The % is a bit higher in the morning....but for me it just makes it easier because I know I am comparing the same thing each day/week. My post-workout-shower reading is always really low. So, I do jump on there just to "see" what that number is...but record the morning ones in my spreadsheet. (I hope that all makes feel like I am
