If my calculations are correct...
Over the course of the last two years and four months, I've changed
considerably both mentally and physically. I lost 108lbs and then put on
6 while marathon training. This 6lbs was purely lean mass (muscle, bone
density) and I'm now at about 6% body fat.
Running is known to increase bone density, and the various forms of
exercise I use in my training increased my muscle mass as well
throughout this transformation. I've been curious to know just how much
fat I lost.
If my calculations are correct, throughout this process I lost 123.96
pounds of fat and gained 21.96 pounds of bone and muscle resulting in my
current net loss of 102lbs.
Why is this filed under the Running section? Because running was what
enabled this transformation to happen.
