Time for another weigh in! I’m happy to report that I’m still moving in the right direction and happy with my progress. Here are the numbers:
I’m almost in to the double digits!
I think I’ll start posting my measurements monthly as well as the scale really is only one of many ways to gauge changes in body and health.
I want to give myself a pat on the back as well for a non-scale victory too. Every year I get a health screening at work and last year I found out my cholesterol was high. I know I had gained weight (I hit my highest weight last April) but that was the first time I saw it reflected in real health numbers.
I had this year’s screening on Monday and I’m happy to report my cholesterol is back in the healthy range! I was surprised by this because I am only down 10 lbs. In the last year I have made some concerted efforts to eat more healthier, eat fewer processed foods, and increase my exercise. I guess this proves that healthy habits can improve your health even if you don’t see a big change in the size of your body. That’s good information for all of us!
Tell me about a non-scale victory you’ve had!
