Not getting hung up on the numbers .....

Monday, August 23, 2010

Ok, so today is Aug. 23rd and I did a weigh in this morning simply because I know that I cheated on Sunday big time and wanted to see what the numbers were looking like.

So I get on the scale and I'm still at 257.4, but I'm not even upset because I seem to be loosing inches. I never took the time to measure myself; which I probably should've done, but sometimes, that's just the way it is. I will however be sure to get a measuring tape today.

But all isn't lost. I may not be losing the weight as fast as I thought; but hey, fast doesn't always mean good. I'd rather loose the weight slowly if it means keeping it off forever.

What I have seen or realized though is that although I'm not losing an obseen amount of weight; I am losing inches.

I have these capri jeans that I wasn't able to get up past my thighs for the past 2 years.
I have been awaiting the day that I could get them to come past my thunder thighs. And OMG .... two days ago,not only was I able to get them past my thighs, but zip them up too and wear them comfortably. I also had a pair of linen pants that I'd brought 2 years ago that I could not get past my thighs as well; and YES!!! I was able to wear them and by the end of the day; they were loose in the front. emoticon

My neighbor told me this morning that my thighs are getting smaller as well. So I'm glad to say that my efforts have not been in vein.

Thank you all for your support; it's so appreciated ..... you have no idea.

Peace & Blessings,

    emoticon emoticon I am so proud of you, congrats on the loss and the difference in your clothing (I am going through the same thing and I LOVE it). Stay focused and committed and keep doing what you need to, remember many many inches eventually lead to pounds loss.

    I have also come to realize that the scale is simply sometimes a liar. LOL! It's good you are measuring your success in other ways... other than that number on the scale. Keep it up.
