Thanks for the reminder that the scale isn't the only thing that matters.

I can't agree more. When someone points out that I lost weight it makes we feel great! I don't feel like I am depriving myself. I feel like I am improving my life and myself at the same time. emoticon

They don't sound like little things to me! Fantastic. It is so great to be able to do things without pain/stiffness. Exercise and movement are truly great therapies!

How great that you can now hold your child over your head without pain! That is such a reward for your efforts, I think!
And then - having more energy and craving exercise and of course, the belt! Wow!

I always read the messages from our Sparkpeple members but rarely make time to respond. However, in this case you hit the nail on the head. My weight still varies up and down as I find it hard to keep on track all the time. BUT it is the little things that I also notice and some big ones. For example I am much fitter and can walk 2 miles with no problem now. When I first started my exercises I could barely do 5 or six reps but now 20 to 30 is no problem. I can move so much better and so, so much more.

Following Sparkpeople has made me more knowledgeable, fitter and lighter and one day I will get to my goal despite going forward and backwards - but isn't that true of life?

Well done and keep checking on The Little Things. emoticon

Aaaaahhhhhh- the last hole on the belt- there are few things as satisfying as that - apart perhaps from the sheer pleasure of having to buy a new belt!!

Of all the "little things" you mention in your post, the most striking to me is "I crave exercise". All the other little things are happeing because of your craving for exercise. You are sculpting your body through exercise even if your weight is not currently decreasing. If you can hold on to that mindset of exercise plus lose the weight slowly and steadily, you will achieve success beyond your wildest dreams. You will have head-turning, jaw-dropping results. Guaranteed.

Spark On!

Although I may not be seeing the changes I would like on the scale, there are a number of little things that I am noticing, which help me believe I am on the right track.

- My face seems thinner to me, my "chins" are getting smaller
- I can pick up my three year old and hold him over my head without pain
- My thighs are becoming more firm
- My arms seem longer, though maybe they're thinner
- I have more energy
- I can now take off my wedding ring (though I don't have a need to)
- I crave exercise
- I have reached the last hole on my belt

It's the little things! My little efforts are adding up to little changes, which are adding up to a new me!!
