Congrats on the fantastic results but even more so on discovering that the scale is just one measure of overall fitness!!
I haven't stepped on one since I started and so far, so good!
Those are AWESOME achievements you got!!!

I'm sure you know this, but muscle weights more than fat so the numbers on the scale aren't nearly as important as the the numbers on the measure tape. So, whooo hooo on adding muscle! emoticon

Great job in finding other victories instead of just concentrating on the scale. emoticon

It's good to remember that the scale is just a number and there are so many other ways to track your success! :D Congratulations on your loss so far! Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the encouragement! I certainly do hope the scale budges soon.

All in all, it is size that matters, doesn't it? Well that and health but you know what I mean. It sounds like you are doing great! You'll find that the pounds start moving again quite soon.

my measurements are certainly changing! I have been a SparkPeople member since the beginning of March, and after an initial weight loss of 3 pounds, the scale hasn't moved.

However, my pants have been getting looser, and my dress for Easter was a size 8! Tonight (with a lot of anxiety) I took my waist, thigh, and hip measurements again, and lost 1.5 inches from my waist, 2 inches from my thighs, and 1 inch from my hips! That is such an encouragement to me.

Now I just need to keep working hard, and start working on lowering my sodium intake...my intake today was a little over 5 grams - yikes!
