I have a question and I don't know in which forum to ask it. Since it does involve motivation, I figured this thread was as good as any.
I've been working out regularly since January 10 and I've noticed some good improvements. My weight is moving downward, albeit slower than it used too (bleh), but it's been consistent so I don't mind too much. I am happy that my clothes are fitting better so I decided to check my measurements today. I last measured myself December 23rd. I am confused because my waist measurement says it's gone up half and inch. My thighs have gone down one quarter of an inch and my arms have decreased the most percentage wise. My question is how are my clothes fitting better if my waist measurement has gone up? I know it hasn't gone up substantially but I still don't think it would make my clothes feel looser.
This ties in with motivation because, even though I feel good and am happy that I no longer have to suck in my tummy just to get my jeans on, seeing the numbers not move much was kind of disheartening. I've never measured myself in my past attempts to lose weight so I don't know how quickly it takes to lose inches and I'm sure, like all other aspects of weight loss, there's no set amount of time because it's different for everyone.
I'm just curious if anyone has any knowledge or advice. I'm just feeling a little down today, is all.
