Day 351 on the Journey!!- The Saga of the Scale
Monday, June 23, 2014
I promised to update you on the saga that was my weigh-in on Saturday so here goes. So on Saturday morning I woke up all excited to step on the scale because I KNEW that I MUST have lost weight. It was so obvios in how I looked, how my clothes fit etc. So of course I stepped on expecting to see at the VERY LEAST a 2 lb loss!! WRONG!! The scale said I GAINED a lb and was back up to 170!!
I was SOOOOO confused and admittedly a little disappointed so I stepped off and on about 3 more times to see if it would change!!! It didn't!!! So I just moved on and decided that I was going to take my measurements because there was NO way that I hadn't made any progress. So I took my measurements and here were the results:
Waist-32 and 3/8 inches (1.625 inches down from 2 weeks ago)
Hip- 41 and 1/8 inches (same as 2 weeks ago)
Thigh- 23 and a 3/8 inches (1.125 inches down from 2 weeks ago)
Bust-39 inches (same as 2 weeks ago)
Upper Arm- 11 inches (0.5 inches down from 2 weeks ago)
Chest- 34 and 1/8 inches (same as 2 weeks ago)
So in all I lost 3.25 inches!! Take that scale!!
It was super encouraging to see all my progress in a "concrete" way even though a small part of me still wants to see the scale drop because that's how it's always been for me but obviously this picture is exactly what's happening to my body:
I'm not sure if the scale will ever move but as long as I get to the size and look that I want it can stay there stuck at 170.
So anyway that's the saga there. As it relates today I decided to skip my workout this morning because of some factors so I'll have to do it this evening when I get home "Oh JOY!!" (she says sarcastically)
Food is good so far though and should be good for the rest of the day. That's all for me today thanks as usual for your time.
