Day 88. Scaling Down

Feeling a bit like a 1-pound yo-yo. This week’s progress:

  • Monday, September 02, 2013. 170 lbs
  • Monday, September 02, 2013 after run. 168 lbs
  • Tuesday, September 03, 2013. 171.5 lbs
  • Wednesday, September 04, 2013. 172 lbs
  • Wednesday, September 04, 2013 after run 170
  • Thursday, September 05, 2013. 171

What I’m learning … weight loss can’t be solely measured by the scale. You need to be mindful of how your clothes fit. How your skin feels … for example, mine is feeling much tighter these days. And that tightness is either from a loss of overall body fat or it is the sun actually cooking my skin while I’m out on the road.

I say these things because if I started out the week at 170 and four days later I’m weighing in at 171, even after logging in 12.29 sidewalk miles, it could be discouraging. So, if you stumble upon this particular entry today, tomorrow, or years from now, and have been scale-discouraged, take heart and take measurement. You may need to tighten your belt and didn’t even realize.

Life lesson #88 – The scale doesn’t measure all your efforts. Sometimes, you need the eyeball test!

Morning weight = 171
