Today I've been discussing weight loss with some ladies on Facebook and Twitter. I realized that there's WAY too much emphasis on the scale, blast that damn thing to hell! Or do this!
While the scale is a useful tool for weight loss, it is not the only tool we all should have in our arsenal. Two of my other favorite tools are how my clothing fits and my measurements. Another useful tool, that I'm honestly not 100% comfortable with, is pictures. It's been said that a picture tells a thousand words and I've found that to ring exceptionally true about weight loss & healthy living.
So I challenge those of you who are up for it: go for 6 weeks without weighing yourselves. Eat right, exercise, and every week take a few pictures and your measurements. I'm going to push myself out of my comfort zone & post my progression pictures at the end of March. I'm nervous, excited & curious to see exactly WHAT I can accomplish in those 6 weeks.
Tomorrow I will weigh myself for the last time until at the end of March. I'll have Adamm9 snap a few pics & help me with measurements every week. Who knows, maybe I'll re-sculpt my body yet again & get some super toned arms, legs or a less flabby midsection! Now THAT would be one hell of a birthday present.
