So, I think I have been saying for a month or so now, that I would indeed take my measurements. I could see the difference in my clothes and in the mirror, but those pounds are hanging on for dear life. Damn them...
I think I had to get to a place of comfort, in knowing this is in fact working and my hard work and commitment to the gym is paying off. So much of the credit I do feel, goes to yoga. The part that makes me "see" the changes. Yoga is hard work...sure some of the benefits are the resting poses and de-stressing...and finding your spiritual side....but those strength poses...are hard core. And when you can go to the next level in them, you find you are sweating up a storm. So going into this commitment, I might have gasped at the numbers. I WOULD have...but now, I do wish I measured first. I would be smiling at these numbers from today. Knowing I am getting there, made me say today...go and do it!!!
It is a bit daunting to get that tape measure out and do it...but I finally did. I have my numbers recorded and next month I will do it again. I did step on the scale again, and lost 2 pounds since the last time...but that was weeks ago. So for now, I will look at the numbers next month and go from there. It took a few years to collect these pounds I now carry, so I will not expect them to come off quickly. As long as they are coming off. Doing my best each day, with no expectations... that's all!
