life with out the scale

In an attempt to not miss checking my scales 10 to hundred times a day (since my mother has well and truely hidden it... did attempt a sneaky look for it but did not prevail) I am making a list of all the none positives I do not need a scale to tell me. so here goes....

1. My body is 10 times more healthier than when I started in January.

2. I am now on the last notch of my belt. I had to have three extra holes punched into it.

3. My thighs are at least 3 inches smaller (according to the last measuring)

4. It is no longer an embarrassing struggle to tie my shoe laces.

5. When I look down I can no longer see my belly stick out further than my boobies.

6. My favourite hoody is now hanging off me and can only be worn around the house :D

7. My body no longer actively protests to exercise. In fact a lot of the time it bloody well enjoys it.

8. The top half my body now enjoys at least a one size smaller in the clothes department

9. I feel great for losing what I've lost so far

10. I enjoy the healthier food and how it makes me feel.

That is just freaking awesome! I'm loving that list! So many great things to be proud of! Belt notches are a particular fave of mine.

Keep it up, yo! Kicking ass!

Yes! Boobs should stick out further than the stomach! Unfortunately for me, mine are shrinking faster than any other part of my body.


Yup. That was today's toomuchinformation report.

#5 was my favorite! Glad mum hid the scales. All the things you listed are awesome. This is not just about what that DAMN scale says anyway!

Great psot!

I searched for my scale too, didn't find it, yelled at hubby for hiding it so well, then he yelled at me for looking for it. Damn lol.

Love the list! Good for you for finding the positives love!

Yippee on the shrinking. It's worth it, huh?

I had to laugh at #5, but that is true progress! My boobs are so small, it's going to be a while before I get there, lol!
This a great list, and yes, all these things are so much more important than that number on the scale.
So glad to hear you're still going strong!
