Another good couple of weeks...

I was out of town the Friday before last through Monday, so this was the soonest that I could do another body composition. It has been a crazy last couple of weeks. I flew back to California for a short visit. One of my friends was getting married, and I was one of the bridesmaids. The ceremony was great. She had some beautiful colors and decorations. All of the bridesmaids wore kimonos, which were beautiful, however, it was an outdoor wedding. The high for that day was 105, so we were burning up. =) You all should be very proud of me...I passed on the wedding cake, which was very hard. I also was able to sneak in a jog while I was in town. My parents have this great jogging/biking trail near their place. Here's a snapshot of me in my kimono, from the wedding ceremony.

I loved how my hair was done up for the wedding...

And I know it can be silly in Japanese culture to wear ohashi (chopsticks) in one's hair, but I couldn't pass on looked so cute. =) This photo was taken later in the evening, so I think between the heat and sweating, it got a little messy.

Walking down the isle...

The bride and her father...Bekah is one of my closest friends. We've been close since junior high. She and her fiance (now hubby) had been dating for 7 years. So it's about time!

Oh, and I guess I should post my stats for the week too =)

Saturday: 10/03 /09
Weight: 164.9 (down 6 lbs. WOOHOO!)
Body Fat: 30.38% (down 1.04%)
Fat weight: 50.10 lbs (down 3.59)
LBM: 114.8 lbs (down 2.41)
Chest: 11.5 mm (down 1.5 mm)
Midaxilla (below armpit): 18 mm (down 2 mm)
Abdomen: 34.5 mm (down 1.5 mm)
Suprailiac (diag. fold abv. hip bone): 25 mm (down 2 mm)
Thigh: 42 mm (same)
Subscapular (below shoulder blade): 18 mm (same)
Tricep: 19 mm (down 1 mm)

All in all, I had another good week. I did notice that I lost a little more lean body mass this week. Although, I did hear that is normal to lose a little bit of muscle mass on any fat loss program. So I'm still keeping an eye on things. If my lean body mass losses start to exceed my body fat losses, then I will go ahead and increase my calories.
It's nice to have my clothes start fitting a little more loose.
