I heart my measurement tape

Saturday, January 10, 2015

And the scale is mean.

I gained a couple of hundred grams (ooooh) so to make me happy I took my measurements today. Turns out I lost 2.5 cm from my waist since last month, even though I'm nearly the same weight. Lost around my hips, thighs and arms too! Not so much around my arms, but I'm telling myself it's because my arms are getting more muscular, haha.

All in all, I got rid of a total of 42.5 cm from arms, waist, hips and thighs since the beginning of this adventure in september. The online converter told me that's about 9.6 inches? Anyhow, to me it's probably my biggest feeling of success so far. Measurements speak louder than the scale I think, and I feel my clothes getting looser and my belly isn't getting in my way anymore, lol. I can even breathe when I'm putting my socks on! emoticon

Today I'll need to study A LOT, and I will probably only do my crunches and the stretching video because I got an awful cold 2 days ago and I'm still not 100% well. Tea and stretching. Sounds like a plan.

Hope you have a good day! emoticon

    Awesome! And thanks for the reminder. I always seem to forget to check my measurements- and they do matter, too.

    Congrats on those centimeters lost, that's awesome! That's definitely way more important than the number on the scale!

    Hope you're feeling better!

    You're doing great, Therese... sounds like your body is making its adjustments, which are not always shown on the scale. Eventually it will all catch up together but it sounds like you're doing a fantastic job! No stress! emoticon

    Omigosh, I have to agree here--the tape measure always tells it like it is! The scale, not so much, lol. Hang in there, you're doing great!
