August report- 0 pounds lost, but down a size!

Thursday, September 05, 2013

In the month of August I lost exactly 0 pounds. I did mostly good with food, I'd say I had about 25 good days out of 31, not too bad for my first month getting serious here again. What I did better then expected with was getting back into running. At the beginning of the month was able to walk 4 miles, but could barely run 1. I ran 3-4 days a week and I'm back able to run 3 miles again! Okay- not nonstop, but I'm ready to start signing up for some 5ks this fall and winter!
Despite no loss on the scale I'm feeling good- really good. I feel like my face is starting to slim a bit, my chest has definitely shrunk- from a 42F to a 40DD (yay!), my rear feels smaller and a little less jiggly, and my clothes were starting to feel a bit loose. So even though the scale hasn't budged I decided to go shopping yesterday... I lost a size! I bought 3 shirts an a size L and a skirt in a size 14! My boxes full of pre-pregnancy sizes 12 and 10 don't seem so far away anymore!
I'll admit, I sure would like to see the number on the scale go down soon, but I'm thrilled the number on my pants has!

    Those muscles you are toning weigh more. Way to go on a size smaller!

    Congratulations on the change in size!

    The scale is only one way to measure progress. I think a reduction in size can be even more rewarding. It may indicate you are holding on to more muscle WHICH IS EXCELLENT!
