I have to say, I was feeling a bit discouraged lately because the scale is not moving much. I will be the first to call the scale evil and admit that there are tons of things that interfere with the scale. But, at the same time I can not kid myself and think that I am gaining all this muscle. I can not simply trade fat weight for muscle weight because my frame can not support 222lbs regardless of how low my body fat percentage is!! The scale needs to move. So when I looked at these pictures I was shocked. I normally have to really look at my pictures to see progress but this time I saw the progress before I even put them next to the other pictures! I have no measurements to go with these. The pictures were taken spur of the moment this morning. No time to hunt down a tape measure.
