Inches, Not Pounds

Friday, February 05, 2010

As you can all see on my weight loss ticker, the scale has hardly budged this month. Ugh.

BUT I measured myself today, and I'm down 8 total inches! You know, an inch off the thigh, 2 off the bust, etc. emoticon

The scale had me discouraged even though I knew that I was losing circumference: my clothes are getting looser all the time. emoticon Still, I was annoyed and discouraged and kinda felt like giving up. Not good.

My January consistency goal and today's measurements are keeping me on track, though. It's fantastic to see progress, even if it's not the kind you were looking for. emoticon

    I wish I had the ambition to take measurements. I see that in some areas I'm shrinking, yet I just can't make myself do it. Grats to you!

    I have the same problem! It is so frustrating to not see the scale move when you are working so hard. I've stopped weighing myself and go by measurements only. Our weight will catch up one day. Congrats on the inches lost!
