Default Tape Measure Victory!

So I've been feeling a bit de-motivated after having a no-loss week followed by a 1/2lb-loss week, since I've been religiously following my diet and working out like a fiend.

But today is the first Saturday of the month, which marks one month into this weight loss journey and also my first measurement day since starting. Imagine my shock, after no results on the scale the last two weeks, to find I've lost 4.5" off my chest and 1.5" off my waist in the last month!

<<---- (I really love these guys LOL)

That's just what I needed to keep me going right now

Congratulations, it makes a big difference when that wardrobe starts looking different! You must be adding lean body mass, and that is exactly what you want to do!
