I started my journey on 1/6/13 at 195#. Since then I had lost 16# until yesterday...I gained a pound. I was very upset. All my hard work, exercising every day, eating better, tracking everything...and I gained!!! (I know it's only a pound but it was still a gain to me!) I was ready to give up! Then I thought, how silly? I have been working very hard, doing things I never thought I could, walking 1.75 miles every day, strength training every day, eating more veggies and fruits I should be proud of how far I've come in a little over 2 months!!! So I decided the scale wasn't the only way to evaluate my progress. So, I took my measurements, and I am proud to say I have lost 13.4 total inches since I started. I figured my BMI and it has gone down 2.47 points since 2/17/13! I had my DH take pictures when I started and I had him take more today.....below are the results. All of my pants are very loose on me!!! I WAS SO EXCITED!!!! So, just to reiterate what Sparkpeople always says, the scale is just a number! It's not the only measure of success in our journeys!!! We can do this!!!! We didn't gain this weight overnight so we're not going to lose it overnight!!! Keep pushing!!! We can do this!!!!
