Scale, same. Non-scale, CHANGES!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013


Now that I'm an official Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, I am not going to be down because the scale didn't move this week. Weigh-in: 144.4 (Stoopid scale). I mean, I know there were a few -- scratch that-- several days over the last 2 weeks when I didn't stay within my range, and my fitness goal lately has just been TEN MINUTES a day, which probably isn't going to make the scale move, and I know that.

BUT. Getting back to where regular exercise, even just ten minutes, is part of my daily routine, is a Very Good thing indeed, and I'm glad of it, and proud of it.

Some of my measurements have gotten smaller, too: hips, thigh, and upper arm. Win.

Oh, and I am wearing BELTS lately to keep my jeans from falling down. Belts! I haven't worn a belt probably in 15 years. And the belt I usually wear is not my husband's belt! Oh, no. It's a women's belt -- MY belt, from long ago. I find this fact inspirational every time I put the thing on! My size 12 jeans are too loose. SUPER WIN.

    Nice job staying on track with your fitness goal. Creating a new daily habit and sticking to it is no easy feat! Also great job getting results in those measurements. That says that you have likely lost fat and gained muscle so basically your are a complete SUCCESS! emoticon emoticon

    Yeah, you're moving forward and you don't need the scale to tell you so!

    The scale doesn't always tell all. NSV are awesome. emoticon on making positive choices in your life. 10 mins of exercise is something, you will build up as you get stronger.

Happy Easter

    Sometimes the scale doesn't cooperate. Could be not enough water or too much salt. What is important is that you keep going!

Awesome win for the week!! GOOD JOB!
