Ok, I did it. I lost 3 lbs this week for a total loss of 31.2 to date. This weeks meeting was about what motivates you and the things we may or may not track besides Points. One of the things I do track sporadically is my measurements. Our leader asked me how many inches I had lost and I couldn't tell her because I haven't checked it for a while. So I came home and measured. Are you ready for this?
Bust -5 inches
Hips -6 inches
Thighs -2 inches
Arms -1 inch
Somehow my waist measurement has gotten totally screwed but the fact that I can't keep my danged pants up speaks volumes even if I don't have good numbers.
So what motivates me? Obviously, positive results motivate me and I see their impact in every aspect of my life right now. In our meetings the leader always asks "So how does that make you feel (losing 10, 20, 30 etc)" and today, I felt great. I feel great. My knees don't hurt so much, I have amazing energy (you are talking to the Queen of Naps here folks!), the comments and compliments are so good for my ego. There are too many things to say about how getting the unnecessary baggage off makes one feel. Its more than a physical concept, it forces you to examine different aspects of your life that contributed to you being overweight to begin with in order to not repeat those behaviours. I think I am getting the hang of this!!
