I've learned from my past efforts to take off some of these excess inches and pounds that the BEST way to track my progress is by noting the way I FEEL, as well as how my clothes fit, and how many INCHES I've lost. As long as I'm working on this, even if that dreaded scale doesn't do anything to make me happy, my beloved tape measure surely will! I've experienced many weeks in which I lost zero pounds...zip, zilch, nothing, nada!...but still managed to lose inches enough to prove to me that my program WAS working, in spite of that pig headed scale!
I learned that, indeed...but guess what - I haven't taken my measurements yet! I'm not *afraid* of the tape measure, nor of the measurements I'll see (thought I doubt that I'll be thrilled either). I just don't like doing it, and I'm not really sure why that is. Maybe it's just that the measurements, the INCHES, is where I'll see the real truth of weather I'm working my program or not. Maybe it's just that I'm too lazy to go locate that measuring tape and try and get it to stay where I need it to get proper measurements. Whatever the reason, I've been putting it off, and now I'm going to rectify it. Not only am I going to rectify it, I'm going to have my S.O. do it for me! That is a HUGE thing for me, because it means he's going to know every ugly detail about me. But I really think he'll do a better job of keeping that tape in place than I can, so it's time to stop procrastinating and just GIT' 'ER DONE!!
Procrastination has always been one of my biggest problems, but the real problem is sheer laziness if I'm totally honest, which I truly want to be here. So here's to ending the laziness (well, *some of it anyway) and procrastination, and the start of being proactive and getting things done! Um...maybe I should wait 'til tomorrow, when I've had time to give it a little more thought
