- People keep commenting about how “skinny” I am. Haven’t been called that in a while!
- I see pictures of myself and can’t believe how I’ve changed.
- I tried on an old pair of work slacks this morning . Ok so the back story on this one. These pants are a size 6 and were my “skinny” pants when I used to work at a company that required business casual (now I wear jeans). On a good day, these pants fit me perfectly. On a bad day, they were slightly too tight. After I got back from my 4 month backpacking trip in Southeast Asia at the end of 2009, these pants literally did zip. Today I put them on and they looked like clown pants! Now that’s results!
- I am down a bra size. I got fitted for sports bras on Saturday I have gone down an entire band size.
As I watch the scale bounce back and forth between 11 and 9 lbs lost, sometimes I get discouraged because I tend to gauage my results on the scale. I especially get down on myself after a weekend that included one or more cheat meals or snacks. Although I’ve always told meyself that I need to look to my measurements and my increased strength as indicators of my body changes, today it really hit me that I need to stop focusing on the scale and start focusing on what really matters – how I look and feel!
There are only two weeks left until I’m a P90X graduate and I can’t wait to re-take the fit test and really see how much stronger I am! Until then, I’ll keep bringing it!
