I stepped on our scale this morning and it read 179.8 ... I'm scared to believe it. Okay let's back up and say a year ago the scale said about 190. And round about June-ish it was stuck between 188-186. I started on products and lost over 20" but the scale has stayed roughly around 184/186. Of course I usually weigh myself at the end of the day and at the gym. Their scale is on carpet which I hear is not exactly accurate. And how accurate can gym scales be really? So I weighed myself this morning...just curious I guess. I was still in my PJs and it was a.m. and the scale said 179.8. I want so much to jump around like a freak and be excited...except that in a couple hours or even just tomorrow the same scale at the same time of day could read 182. I know that scales aren't the ultimate rule over this losing weight and being healthier thing...but a LOT of people focus on the weight part of it.
Let's talk about how I've dropped from a size 14 to a size 10. That's over 20" all over! My bra no longer fits either! So I suppose I'm a bit frustrated that the scale is hardly moving ... because so many people focus on that. BUT I also suppose that if I'm consistantly losing inches and not weight then I'm gaining muscles. So that means if you give me a hard time about not losing weight then I can beat you up?? :P
I'm not done yet :) I'm still headed down and that's all that matters. It really is slow and steady for me, but as long as I get there I guess I don't mind too much!
Francisco is melting before my eyes! lol he's so close to getting below 200lbs! I'm so excited for him! (Cheer him on!!!)
