Feeling good

So I know the scale hasn't been budging for me for quite a long time. And I'm not doing enough big strength things to be really seeing muscle growth, but I still think something's going on. I haven't done measurements yet but will this weekend (at the end of the month). My pants are fitting differently. Even my skinny pants, the ones I just recently could wear again, are loose on the waist. Not the butt or legs or anything, so they're not falling down, but they gape a bit when I stand up. Weird.

And my jeans that sort of have always fit, and always looked good, they're loose in the hips. Sort of like stretched out, you know, 3 wearings in and just before a wash. But they just came out of the drier. bizarre.

So I'm pretty happy about that. At least this week, I can put anything in my closet on and not have to check a mirror. Granted my tight shirts don't look good when I'm sitting but standing I'm happy.

I think I'm at that weird place when you don't see it any more. When I was my previously skinniest (4 years ago before my wedding). I wasn't really exercising much, jogging now and then, doing the same "diet" kinda thing as I've always done, save treats for treat worth occassions. Then I remember one morning getting dressed and seeing my naked legs, and being impressed. I don't know how they got that way but they were actually nice! (I have never had nice legs, short and muscular = stumpy looking).

I think I might be getting there again. Nothing dramatic going on, just going through the motions. Eating is fairly easy (save TOM) exercising is second nature. This should pay off right?

That is so exciting!!! It's like having a whole new wardrobe!!!

The scale is weird, I have barely lost weight in MONTHS but the inches are going down!

Awesome! Even though you're not dropping pounds, you're gaining tone and definition and overall your body's becoming more compact! Excellent work!!

I love the "seeing my naked legs and being impressed" line.

the fact you could see it, recognize it, and pat yerself on the back for it.

and it's coming around again (made me think of a viewer mail question about scales I just answered...screw the scale :)).
