OK... So on May 5 I decided to take my measurements for the first time. I was always anti the whole measurement thing... It just seemed like such a hassle.
I also always felt there was so much room for human error! I mean, if you move the measuring tape the smallest bit you get a different measurement!
But I did it anyway.
I said I would measure every month on the 5th.
Today is the 5th. I measured...
I am down a total of 3.5 inches!!!
Now... That may not seem like a lot... and I still have that whole "human error" thing in my head... but it was consistant.
I did not go up in ANY measurements.
Some stayed the same.
Some were down anywhere from 0.5-1.0 inches.
I am really happy I recorded them a month ago. I know I have lost a few pounds, but this somehow feels even better! Maybe because it's tangible. I actually feel it in my body, and the measurements support it.
So... for those of you who are like I was... Never wanting to measure... I say just do it. In a month you will be happy you did.
