Default Happy Measurements Dance

So, I had a 6 week assessment done at the gym this morning and I have lost an additional 6.5 inches in 6 weeks!

My cardio recovery has improved again as well and, I did 6 more pushups and 4 more situps in a minute!

The scale isn't moving a great deal for me but that's OK. I feel great and have a tonne of energy and stamina.

It's things like this that keep me on track.

Thanks 3FC for making me realize that health doesn't revolve around a number on the scale and a BMI reading.

Awesome!! That is a great accomplishment and a total endorsement of why people should have goals and measurements that are not scale related. Keep it up!
