Weigh in and measure

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I finally got a chance to weigh again after a month. It was a different scale. I haven't lost ANYTHING since the initial 2 pounds. It sure felt like I'd lost weight! My measurements are a better story. Since the beginning: Waist 2" smaller, hips 1 3/4" smaller, thighs the same and arm 3/4" smaller. I really don't get how my weight could be the same! I've been doing this since August 11th, so about two months. I walk a 15 minute mile for 3 miles, 3 times per week. I strength train different body parts 5-6 days per week and I do pilates and cardio for a total of 6 x's per week. I also keep my calories in the middle to lower range most of the time. I don't know what else to do. I really don't think I can lower my calories or work out more. I know I feel better and my clothes are looser, but good grief!

    You look fine and I think the fact that your measurements are down is a good indication that you are making progress. I am kind of in the same boat right now- everyone says that I am looking trimmer but the scale isn't budging. But I am wearing size 4 jeans today!

    I second the comment that muscle weighs more than fat, and I am sure that is part of issue. Also the scale can be a factor - trust the measurements - they verify you are makeing progress

    Remember that muscle weighs more than fat -- that may be the key here. Don't be discouraged -- the tape measure shows improvement! and I'm sure you feel better than you did back in July! And yes, the scale not being the same one can also come into play in this! emoticon
