Omg My Hard Work Is Paying Off!

Monday, January 21, 2013

Good morning Everyone, (MySparkpeople)
So I weighed myself this morning & I was happy that I lost 1.8 lbs! I wished it was more but at least its something & that the weight is going down not up! I have decided that my Scale ( emoticon) is Evil ( emoticon) & I will not let that deter me anymore! I will not be defined by my Scale and I'm now just gonna go by how I feel & how different my Clothes feel! I know that I have been drinking my Water & Eating Healthy so I haven't cheated myself because I'm doing all the right things! I also took my measurements and this is where all my hard work is being done! So I wanted to share with all of you my progress & mind you this is after one week from last Monday! I'm soo proud of myself here's the proof that I'm working hard!

January 21, 2013
Neck 15 1/2" down 1 1/2"
Right A 16" Same
Right L 26" down 1"
Mid S 47" down 1"
Waist 49" down 1"
Hips 54 1/2" down 2 1/2" (WOW!)


So Yay! Look at all my hard work in one week! I'm soo proud! Even if the Scale didn't say No loss or the Measurements went up instead of down I would of still felt proud because I am not just changing myself for short term but I'm changing myself for a life filled with healthier choices and living well! So as you can see by these Measurements that they are definitely showing all my hardwork & dedication & that feels good! So I just wanted to share the good news with all of you! Have a great day everyone! emoticon

    Good for you! You SHOULD feel proud, you are doing amazing!!! The measurements mean more than the scale if you ask me because no one knows or cares how much you weigh, but everyone can see what you look like. Great, great work! Well done!

    Great work! Way to go with the measurements ... the scale is simply a tool, not the judge of how we are doing! Keep up the great attitude!

    you were only 0.2 from the recommended maximum loss. So 1.8 was excellent.

    Ooo! you reminded me! Last week I had my trainer help me take my measurements and we're going to try to hopefully do measurements monthly and see how I"m doing. Not sure I could do weekly but I could see if she'd do that.

GOod job! I haven't officially weighed myself. I will tomorrow I think. emoticon So, Hopefully it will be good news, considering I have been pretty darn good! and we can both celebrate!!

    Way to go!

I haven't ever taken my measurements. I have only used weight as my measure. I think I will take a cue from you and enter my measurements as well.

Wishing you all the best for the upcoming week.
