This week has turned out to be a win for me, weight-wise. I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I jumped on the scales. Well, not “jumped” but you get the idea.
I found that I had lost only 1/2 a pound. But that was OK, since I hadn’t dropped any weight last Monday when I weighed.
Then I took my measurements. Gone were 1/2 an inch in my waist, and 1/2 an inch in my hips. BOOM! Not bad. I’ll take that. 🙂
I was trying to figure out why that would be the case. I think the reason may be that I started using weights again this week. I have been using my 5 and 10 pound weights, and working my upper body while doing squats and lunges, etc. I haven’t “hit it hard” but obviously what I have been doing has had some effect. 🙂
This is good motivation for me. I haven’t been using weight to work out with for awhile, especially since my foot surgery the end of last year. That really put a crimp in my workout schedule.
Here’s a blog post from one on my favorite weight loss blogs, From Doughnuts to Dumbbells, about this very same topic. Talk about timely!
Well, it seems like I am on the right track. Back to a slimmer me! 🙂
