Measure Results Beyond The Scale!

This Sparked Me!

I look at inches lost, my doctor's positive feedback, increased energy and endurance levels, firmer/toned body AND I go by how my clothes fit. I buy smaller size clothing and try them on often. As the clothes start to fit, this motivates me to continue my workouts and healthy eating.

This helps with the obsession over the scale and looking at other ways to measure progress.

    I feel the same way. Although it is nice to see the lbs. go down on the scale, it is even better when your jeans are so baggy your family complains. That makes me feel great!
