Sorry, I missed February! (213.6) - Mark's Journal
Sorry, I missed February! (213.6)
I think it's not the first time I skipped a whole month since I really got into LiveJournal, but it's been a very rare occurrence. I've also tried skimming my Friends page a couple of times, but I don't remember as often as I should.

Lowest weight in quite a while, at least a year and a half, which you can see from the 213.6 above! But, weirdly, even though I'm down a few pounds since last August, I'm up in body fat percentage. Does that mean I'm losing muscle weight instead of fat weight?!

If the body fat %ge is from one of those home scales, I think those have some pretty significant sources of error. Could just be that your skin is drier in March than in August, changing the effective resistance it's measuring. In any case, congrats on the pounds down. I'm struggling but not making much progress with that myself.

Yup, definitely from a home scale, and it's good to know that that could be just because of drier skin. (My skin is almost certainly drier in March than in August, even though I have a humidifier going all winter and a dehumidifier going all summer.) Thanks!
