Congrats to all. I haven't measured since the first day. Scale shows only 5 lbs lost. I can tell I've lost though. I go too much by the scale. The other day I weighed and it showed I had gained 2 lbs. I was so depressed. Two days later it showed I had lost 2.5. I shouldn't get on it at all. Just go with the flow but it is so tempting.
I forget to measure myself and know its the way to go for me. Altho, I just squeezed myself into a pair of jeans that had been taunting me in my closet for a few months. The scale has not moved, so it felt pretty satisfying to stuff myself into them.

I think I measured once - almost a year ago- but I figured that since I am not doing Strength Training that I wouldn't see a change in the numbers on the tape measure. Maybe I am wrong. I do depend on the numbers on the scale far too much. Congrats to you!! Sounds like you are doing everything right!

The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Well ... its been a month and I have not lost any weight, but then I have not gained any either. So I got out the tape measure and started working my way through the list! To my amazement I discovered that I have lost two inches off my hips and half an inch off my waist. Not bad for one months walking about the estate. Magic!
Just goes to prove (to me) that SP are right about not getting upset about that little needle standing still on that damn machine.
Hoping that next month will show more progress in a nice slow way.
