The first of the month is measurement day at Curves, and I was actually looking forward to it because I can feel the difference since joining in March. Sure enough - 2 cm less around both the thigh and the upper arm! It really gave me an incentive to put in a hard workout today and to eat well.
Because I live in Japan, I use centimeters for measurements. It's easier to check clothing sizes that way, although I'm still in the LL or LLL range since Japanese women are, in general, so tiny. It also makes the loss look greater when it's measured in centimeters rather than in inches.
The crazy thing is that, although my scales are in kilograms, I keep track of my weight in pounds. Again, the loss of 2-3 pounds seems so much more than 1 (only one) kilogram! Hey, anything that makes me feel better about myself.
If I keep this up for the next 2 months, it's possible there may even be 4 cm less of me by the time of my 50th high school reunion in August! Of course, if some of that were from my butt, er, derriere, I'd be all the happier!
