In all honesty, this past week I wasn’t as diligent as I should have been in terms of tracking my food intake, limiting my alcohol consumption, and working out. I saw some success last week and that made me slack a little bit. Dolvett on Biggest Loser would be disappointed, and I would not want to disappoint that specimen of a man. Luckily, I was still good enough that I saw some losses. This is inspiration to get back on track, not slack off:
In the last 7 days:
Hips: -0.8 in
Bust: -1 in
Waist: -0.5 in
Thighs: -0.25 in each
Total: -2.8 inches

So, where are those weekly weight watchers check in? Why haven’t you been writing? We’re waiting for posts here Ms. Murphy. These are things I’m sure some of you are wondering, some of you don’t care about (I get it, it’s cool), and some of you have actually said to me. Well, my path with weight watchers has changed a bit. I’m still following the plan as I really love the new points+ system, but I’m not weighing myself every week as planned. I’m weighing myself every month.
As I take on this new, healthier lifestyle, I’m working out, building muscle, and subsequently staying the same weight or maybe even gaining. I’ve decided that I can’t let myself be a slave to the scale – I need to base my success based on how I feel, how I look, how my clothes fit, and my measurements. Within those four critera lies true success. Not in a number on a scale.
That being said, my next weigh in will be on March 1. If the number isn’t much better, whatever. It’s life. It’s all about how I feel and how my clothes fit.
I’m really taking inspiration these days from fitness posts on Pinterest as well as on Tumblr. Join up and let’s motivate each other, together.
