August report- 0 pounds lost, but down a size!
Thursday, September 05, 2013
In the month of August I lost exactly 0 pounds. I did mostly good with food, I'd say I had about 25 good days out of 31, not too bad for my first month getting serious here again. What I did better then expected with was getting back into running. At the beginning of the month was able to walk 4 miles, but could barely run 1. I ran 3-4 days a week and I'm back able to run 3 miles again! Okay- not nonstop, but I'm ready to start signing up for some 5ks this fall and winter!
Despite no loss on the scale I'm feeling good- really good. I feel like my face is starting to slim a bit, my chest has definitely shrunk- from a 42F to a 40DD (yay!), my rear feels smaller and a little less jiggly, and my clothes were starting to feel a bit loose. So even though the scale hasn't budged I decided to go shopping yesterday... I lost a size! I bought 3 shirts an a size L and a skirt in a size 14! My boxes full of pre-pregnancy sizes 12 and 10 don't seem so far away anymore!
I'll admit, I sure would like to see the number on the scale go down soon, but I'm thrilled the number on my pants has!
