As some of you may know, in my journey to lose weight, get healthier, and become more fit I’ve decided to stay away from the scale. I weigh in once a month just to have a rough idea of where my weight is, but other than that I don’t pay too much attention to the number. As I continue to lift and work out, my body changes while the number on the scale often won’t. Instead of continually weighing in and being discouraged that the number isn’t moving, I’ve decided to base my successes off measurements. That being said, in the past 3 weeks, my measurements have changed as follows:
Arms: -1.25 inches each
Hips: -0.5 inches
Waist: -2.5 inches
That’s 5.5 inches off my body. I call that a success! Who cares what the number says.
