Surprise Surprise

So I've said it a HUNDRED times but I really can't stress enough... it DOESN'T MATTER what number that scale says!!! But I will admit that regardless of that, it feels good to be moving in the right direction. I also will admit that YES, I am trying to LOSE weight {I did have a baby nearly 9 months ago}. But am I trying to lose a specific number? No, not really. After I got the okay to start working out again I took my body measurements and figured my ideal BMI range. I weigh myself ONCE a WEEK. I also take body measurements ONCE a MONTH. Anything more than that is not a good thing FOR ME. I also take pictures; Tony Horton {P90X} and Jillian Michaels {Biggest Loser} call them Goodbye pictures or something like that... & no, they will NOT be posted!

So LAST month my weight had gone down but there was ZERO change in my measurements. Even when I swear a number means very little {if ANYTHING} to me, it's hard to see zero change. I got over it pretty quick; it's better than going in the WRONG direction... right?!

THIS month {today} is a TOTALLY different story. In the past 30 days I have lost 4 pounds; a pound a week is right where I want to be. I have dropped 6 inches on my waist and 2.5 on my hips. My chest is bigger {no griping there}. My arms and legs are stronger. It was thrilling to see my pictures from before and now. I FEEL great and it's nice to see that I'm starting to LOOK great too.
