As promised, I took my measurements this morning. These numbers will serve as a baseline for the next 12 months. (I haven’t found an “ideal” BMR – I don’t think there is one – but I will continue to track this in the coming weeks.)

I will be taking measurements once a week at the same time (in the morning before breakfast) to try to keep the data consistent.

At certain milestones, I will post charts of how I am performing versus target on key measurements. I will also be doing some experiments with exercises and foods to see which are most effective at moving the numbers.

Happy New Year, everyone!
