I watch my pounds daily and measure my inches monthly--and the inches are so much more meaningful to me. It is so rewarding to "have" to buy clothes a size or two smaller and bag up my old clothes and send them to Goodwill. I give to Goodwill because they do such wonderful work helping train young adults with special needs so they can obtain and keep their jobs,

Sure do wish I'd kept the original jeans I got rid of---size 20 and even they were tight at first. Now I'm in a size 16 with space to spare! AND I can see my collarbones for the first time in at least 15 years!

1/2 inch on my bust; 1/2 " on my waist and 1/2 " on my hips; Even though my grandson was here for a visit and I didn't do as much as I otherwise would have I love these results; oh plus 2.2 lbs. emoticon

Honestly anything would be great as of now. I have been working out for a week and have GAINED 10 pounds and have not lost a single inch!!! I have been eating mainly a vegan diet this last 2 weeks. Talk about discouraging! I just don't know what I can do? I'm already pushing 200lbs. And I'm only 21. I just don't get it.

I just started today but I am hoping to not only finish this challenge but continue it. I need to be an example for myself as well as for my family so that they can get healthy. I have lost weight in the past but it always came back because I a an emotional eater but now I have a new outlook on life. I need encouragement, though, because I like to quit if things get too hard.

No, I have been active for about 8 months now. The challenge help me loose my last five lbs to reach my weight goal. Personally I feel that inches lost are better than weight.

I agreed with your post. I have have not lost much weight but went from size 12 to size 4. I was being hard on myself because my goal was to loose weight. So, keep up the good work and you will see results. Good job everyone!!!

A moral to the story: Make your goal attainable: losing inches and pounds is optimum but losing inches means you have toned up and look better in all your clothes so don't be too hard on yourself.
You are all an inspiration to me and to others here! Keep up the good work! emoticon
