Non-scale Progress Indicators

Thursday, December 27, 2012

At time of writing, I've lost 11 lbs from my heaviest weight. I am noticing other indicators that I'm progressing, though:

* My clothes are starting to fit looser.
* I'm not puffing after a game of Nascar with the dogs.
* It's easier to convince myself to exercise, even if it's just for 10 minutes.
* I look forward to trying new exercises.
* I'm sleeping better.
