It’s numbers check in day for me, and I have a new weapon.
I know now is not that time, but since I’ve been there, done that so many times, I know there will come a point when the scale will stop moving and I will get discouraged, and that discouragement over the scale will cause me to fail.
Keeping that in mind I’ve decided to add 2 more indicators to my visual arsenal. The first, obviously, is my scale. Here’s what it had to say this morning: 257
Last week: 259.4
This week’s loss: -2.4
Total loss to date: -9
Yeah. You see those numbers. I’m baring my soul and putting it all out there. It’s hard, and it’s scary, but it is what it is and no matter if I put it here or not, it’s still there.
My second weapon is a digital tape measure. This one:
It is taking a bit of playing to get used to the buttons, because it will save your measurements (the saving is the part I’m having trouble with). It’s stupid easy to use just to measure, though, if you want to paper track. It has 8 default measuring areas but I only plan to track my chest, waist, and hips. These 3 will be perfect indicators for progress and figuring out what size clothing I need to be wearing. It will also measure bicep, thigh, calf, shoulder, and neck.
Here’s what it had to say this morning:
Yeah. Ouch. But, I’m really excited for next Tuesday to get here so I can see what it says.
The third weapon in my arsenal isn’t here yet, drat, so you’re going to have to wait.
