Non-Scale Victories!

Sunday, July 20, 2014

So, my darn scale is being a witch. That's okay, I'm steady exercising and losing INCHES! Yes, that's right! emoticon I've lost a total of 4 1/2 inches since July 3rd!

emoticon Go me! emoticon

I am learning that after you begin an exercise program, you will likely gain a few pounds due to water retention. Your muscles are storing and burning fat for fuel. After 4 to 6 weeks, there is a breakthrough, and the scale will begin to move downward once again.

I can live with that! emoticon

I am so enjoying this... the swimming... the workouts... the sheer joy of being alive and moving.

Why did I wait so darn long?

These are the bracelets on my right wrist. They used to be quite tight. Not anymore!

    emoticon for NSV! Go you!! You are right! More muscle is better then having/losing fat for now and seeing scale go down. After gaining more muscle, you'll see scale move better. Keep on keeping on my friend.
