The gym at work has a nifty gadget that calculates your weight, height, body-mass index, and even your fat index. I've decided to measure myself every Monday as one form of assessing my progress. I'm happy to report that after my third measurement, I have lost over 7 pounds of body fat. Now my overall weight hasn't shifted much. In fact, I gained a pound this week but still slightly less than my first measurement. Also, I'm noticing my heart rate isn't going as high for the same effort. Another plus!
