I'm A Loser

Saturday, August 03, 2013

A loser of INCHES that is!!

I have been really bummed because though my workouts have been more consistent this past month and my eating has been on a better track the scale has not moved much at all in July. I want to get out of the 150's SOOO bad but I've been reading so much about how when you first start strength training that the scale might not move or even go up but its because you're gaining muscle so I shrugged it off as best as I could.

Today was measurements day! I've been trying to measure every 1-2 weeks but July was crazy so I haven't measured since the first of the month and after one month though on the scale I've lost one measly pound I have lost over 4 inches all over my body!! What I find odd is that my clothes aren't really fitting that different though. Strange. I think when I gained this last time I gained in places I don't normally gain and maybe that's why?

I don't know. All I know is that I am losing and my scale is a liar. ;) Haha!!

I'm celebrating by going out to dinner with my amazing husband and then hitting the gym for a killer workout.

Enjoy your weekend!! emoticon

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's so awesome!!!

That is exactly why I'm so pro measuring yourself! Think of all the people who would have given up when they didn't see the scale move - but not you! You're awesome!

    emoticon Nice! We seem to be at about the same point. I was bummed the weight wasn't coming off as fast as I would like, but my measurements did change in the last 2 weeks! Yay getting stronger!
