Since I've been piping up with questions and comments about my keto endeavor, I didn't want to clog the Senior's Keto Thread with my comments and questions, and turn it into the Minotaur Show, lest I become a pain in the ass. Hence, this catch-all little dumpster for my beginnings, progress, goals, etc. So, I'll be a pain in the ass in my own thread. (note to audience... The Minotaur does not take himself seriously).
I found a spreadsheet I made back in the day. It's from1997; I really started working out around 1993-1994. I posted those pics in the pics, thread, but I'll just throw them in here for consolidation's sake.
I did have measurements from 1993-94, but they're on an old *** PC-XT in my storage locker... best extrapolation for size is that I wore a 14.5" shirt collar, 38 jacket, and Small for pullovers, polos, T-shirts, etc.
(D'oh! I forgot to add that I'm 5'5" and currently 45 years old, 46 in July. In 1994 I was 37, etc.)
My measurements in Nov. 1997...
The quality of the next few pix is not good.
(I really hate this shot! I've seen pix of kangaroos with less of a pouch )
Just a few months ago my arms measured a shade over 16. Then a few weeks ago they were 16 3/8. Today, they measured 16.5, cold flexed! This was after my weekend carb refeed, but even after last weekend, or even a few weeks ago when I was eating carbs, they never measured 16.5. This is a first. Now I'm greedy and want 17"
Even after my dietary debauchery this weekend, when I used my keto strip ths morning, it still turned color. So I guess I was still in ketosis.
As far as goals, I don't care what the scale weight is, but I want to lose 4-5 inches from my waist. That would put me at about 10-12% bodyfat. Achieving that will make everything else fall in line... like being able to strut around in a speedo or butt floss at the beach. That's really it.
