Coolorama! It's nice to see when you STS that something in your body has changed.. I hear a lot of people whose measurements went down a lot even though they Stayed The Same.... It's all going the right way... and you have a lot less to lose than 'some of us' lol so your bod's probably gearing up for a big loss next time who knows?*hugs*Gail xxx
Bugger! Weightloss such an imprecise science!! I have WI tomorrow and will be ecstatic if I STS. The food in this house I'm staying in is high in fats = cheese on everything. Trying to have small portions, and hating eating any of it. Will go home late on Friday night and get my body sorted for the following week.
You're still the amazing shrinking woman to me!!
Argh. I can only imagine how frustrating that must be.Early nights are good for the soul!!
It's so hard to get to bed early, isn't it? I wake up in the morning sometimes feeling so tired that I vow to go to bed earlier that night . . . and then . . . it doesn't happen. Something inevitably gets in the way.I've been doing the early dining with the girls, and it has made a big difference for me. Paul and I NEVER used to eat before 8:00, so it was a big transition for me. I just decided family meals were/are too important. And now that we've been doing it for awhile, eating late doesn't sit well with me. I go to bed feeling fairly gross, actually.I like your plans!
You are awesome. Don't get discouraged. I bet you are right and the numbers will show it next week. I want to buy a book I just heard about it that sounds wonderful - Women, Food, and God. I wonder if you would be interested in it too. There was an excerpt from it in a past Oprah magazine.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!!!! Well done Lucy. That is great stuff.And something I learned through doing boot camp - it's all in the body measurements not in the weight you see on the scale (because muscle weighs more and weight shifts to make for a new body shape). So take your calf, thigh, hip, stomach, chest and upper arm measurements and document them and watch them change. For me (for example) I lost masses of centimetres off my hips, bust and stomach, but grew cms on my calves, thighs and arms as I grew muscle. All in all by the end of my boot camp experience (once we did the pluses and minuses and worked it all out) I have lost around 40+ cms from all over my body! The scales though, in all that time, only moved by 6kgs. I like the 40cms result heaps better!
Any week that I don't show a gain I mark off as a good week in my book! I do agree that the body measurements are well worth taking if you don't already. Even the littlest decrease there can often even make a gain not seem so horrible!
I think we all know how you feel! It is super frustrating when the scale just won't budge! At least you didn't gain!Thanks for doing this bloghop! I'm excited to be on board. :)
I have been in the same boat. Working my butt off and the scale not moving like I want it to. I also have access to a scale that measures your BCA so I did that on friday and I had lost fat and gained lean muscle. So Congrats to you on changing your body!
