This is a “quickie” but wanted to share a mini-victory.
Tonight after working out, I put on the LAST of the “fat shirts”, the sole hold-out from my entire wardrobe. Not only DID IT FIT, it was BIG everywhere, including over an INCH from the “dreaded FUBAS”!!!
Did I see a difference when I looked in the mirror? No! Did the scale show a drastic change? No!
Unless we periodically measure ourselves and use the “clothes guage”, the change in our bodies as things shift from day to day won’t be dramatic enough to see. Looking in the mirror only shows you a piece of the whole picture.
So it’s just as important to take your measurements on a monthly basis as it is for the weekly “weigh in” and quarterly “clothes check”.
VIT – Very Important Tip:
Hopefully you have kept one set of “fat clothes” from the beginning of your weight loss (mine in buried in the garage sale pile and will have to be fished out!). DON’T GET RID OF IT! Not only will you need it after you’ve lost the weight for your “after picture”, but it’s a powerful motivator “along the weigh” whenever the scale decides not to cooperate or you’ve just eaten enough for a small country and are buried under a case of the “guilt’s”.
So, let’s hear it for the “magical shrinking FUBAS”!!!
