NYAYNE Great news from the tape measure. You go girl. You just proved that the scale is not the only way to measure success. As fat is replaced by muscle the scale moves slower while the tape tells the real story.
A note on the belt. I knew dancers that always wore a thin belt under their clothes next to the skin to keep tabs on weight/size and over eating. They would graze all day on healthy snacks but would never eat enough in one sitting to feel bloated. These we muscular young women that were fit and trim. 3743 days ago
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!! I was smiling so big while watching this! HEheee. And my husband walked into the room so he got to see what you look like too (since I'm always talking about you)! LOL!!
This is a really neato monthly review! I absolutely LOVED the part where you were looking at your current measurement and comparing to where it used to be - looking at that STRETCH of measuring tape is a really really neat visual! I'm going to have to go try it out myself!
And, I think that I'm going to make something that's the same length and add it to my vision collage bulletin board to remind me of how far I've come! GREAT way to measure beyond the scale!

Yep great motivation. Especially when the dreaded plateau descends. Or worse. My scale is going the wrong way this week. Ayeeee. After all my earlier success I have let myself get hooked on sugar again. I'm going to keep focusing on the positive. And the overall positive. Just as you suggest.
That is so cool how much slack is in that belt. It's cute that you make little excel spread sheets and then graph it. I agree a nice graph does put things into perspective. I like the chart that my Wii Fit makes because I see the downward trends even when the weight goes up and down. It looks like a little scatter plot.
Great video! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on measuring. I usually hate to measure b/c I can't find the tape measure, or whatever, but you're right its a good indicator of progress. I checked out your page, WOW, you are doing great, you are such an inspiration. Congrats on all your success! 3745 days ago
