Measuring Up...

OK. I have been a real slacker as of late. I have not been weighing in and I have not been checking in at Tales from the Scales. I know that this is a terrible time of year to play the ostrich game. I know all too well, that if I ignore it, the weight will creep back on and I won't have even seen it coming. So, in order to keep myself accountable, I decided to measure myself this morning. I will add my weight after I go weigh in this afternoon.

The Racer and I officially began this "healthier lifestyle" journey last January. That is when we did our first measurements. We measured again in October. So, here are my totals of inches lost.

In the past 2 months: 10.25 inches lost
Since January: 20.00 inches lost

Yes, you read that right. Over half the inches I have lost have been in the past 2 months. Yippee!!

Goals for the holiday season:

  • Limit soda intake to 2 per day.
  • Workout a minimum of 3 times per week
  • Be conscious of emotional eating.

Your inch numbers are amazing! Way to go! I never took mine. I know I should have - and still can - but I have large arms and I don't know if I want to know that number. Plus, I think I'd need help and I definitely don't want hubby knowing those numbers!! :o)

It looks like you have set perfectly reasonable goals - best wishes to you as you work on them during this hectic time of year!

Merry Christmas!

Keep at it! You are doing good. I used to be a pop-aholic, once I quit that junk I started feeling much better. Congrats on cutting it down.
