The scale finally moved in the right direction

Friday, April 05, 2013

I've faithfully been doing SP since mid February/end of February and my scale hasn't moved. Sure, it went down 1 pound then back 1 pound that's been it. I joined SPCoach and they said not to focus on the scale so much. Measure myself and see if my clothes are fitting differently. Well, that's what I've been doing. My clothes are more loose, I see a noticeable difference in how my body looks in a mirror.
So it's been about 5 or so weeks where once a week I stand on the scale and fully expect to see 184lbs. What to my surprise this past week the scale finally moved in the downward direction. I nearly jumped off the scale when it read 181lbs.

3 pounds! I can't wait to measure myself in a few weeks to see how those numbers have changed as well.

    emoticon Good job, Heidi! SP says that it's a lot better to see a gradual weight loss instead of an immediate huge loss, that it means that the real weight is coming off, so celebrate that victory. emoticon

    Even small changes bring huge benefits. Proud of you. Keep it up, or should I say "off"?
