Scale vs. tape

Friday, March 15, 2013

I have been a bit discouraged that the scale isn't moving much emoticon
But this morning I got out the tape measure and my waist and hips have both lost an inch in the last two weeks!

This should be enough motivation to keep me on track. But today is my DH's birthday, so I'm baking a carrot cake with maple cream cheese icing- not exactly a low- calorie treat. We are going out to dinner and a concert (Irish music, of course) with friends and then back here for coffee and dessert. No way I'll be within my calorie goals today, but I'm going to get in some cardio and yoga later to try to offset the damage.
Have to just keep sparking emoticon

    When I lost weight before, one of my regrets was not measuring myself. I plan on doing that this time. Love that you're allowing yourself a treat, and adding extra exercise, without adding the guilt! Keep up the good work.

    Yes. We have to look as the big picture. The scale that tells all is the best. Your real age, your BMI, calories, omentum, weight, fat percentage, the works. Its worth the investment.. I love mine. emoticon
