It's just amazing.......

Monday, March 16, 2009

Ok, today started off kind of rough for a monday. I was really late for work and super sore from starting my strength training this weekend but it shaped up to be a pretty awesome day....

First off, this morning when I was trying to find something to wear I noticed that my work pants were a little baggier than normal...I didn't think to much of it because I didn't think I'd been working long enough to where I would start to notice the pounds coming off - not to mention I've only lost 1 pound, according to the scale. When lunch time came around I went into the break room at work and two ladies I work with both said I already looked smaller, that I was losing weight and they could tell...I was like what??? It made me feel really good to know that all my hard work is paying off and even though its not showing on the scale that I'm actually still losing weight! I guess I'm gaining muscle in place of the weight coming off???

When I got home I was anxious to try on a few pairs of pants that I knew use to be *just* to small. I couldn't believe it when they slipped right on! And a pair of lounge pants I have that I just tried on 2 weeks ago that would barely fit around my thighs pulled right on. They are still a tad snug but they fit!! Its so amazing to me that according to the scale I've only dropped a pound but I already seem to be getting smaller.....doesn't seem possible even though I know it is.....

Awesome day to say the least!

    Sometimes encouragement comes in different forms.

    Nothing better than finding clothes getting baggier.

    Congrats, hun! All that strength training is paying off for you. Not only are you burning fat, but gaining muscle too! This will trick you when it comes to the scale, but sliding into clothes that use to be snug but now baggy, is a great feeling! Keep up the Good Work!
