The Simple Diet - Day 164 ~ Measuring success

Thursday, June 21, 2012

So over the last couple of weeks I have been getting frustrated with my lack of weight loss. I know where I have been going wrong and am now working on that.

But I have found that it is very important to notice the positives I am seeing. My cloths are getting larger, I have more energy, my chest is bigger then my largest belly roll and when I am standing I can look straight down and see my feet.

I have also lost quite a few inches. Just since mid-March I have lost 18 inches with a bunch of that being off of my hips.

I think it was good for me to have this hurdle to cross so that I can better appreciate the physical changes that my body is undergoing.

    Kinda nice to be able to look down and see your own feet, eh? lol I can do that now, too! WOO HOO! Such a great feeling when you can visually see the changes you've been working so hard for!!

    I think you've finally talked me into it. I'm gonna measure and maybe check that once a month.

    The tape measure is always more accurate than the scale.

    Thanks for this, it can be so discouraging when the scale does not move and we can get caught up while not acknowledging all the other great loss such as inches in our waist.

    I need this, thanks :)

    Hmmm I'm thinking that your clothes are not getting larger and maybe you're getting smaller... lol I totally agree it's not all about the weight. lots of really great things are going on keep up the great work.
