The scale is still hidden for another week and a half so I have no idea how much progress I've made in the last six weeks, weight or measurement wise. But, the last few weeks I have been able to start pulling on jeans that haven't fit in over a year. Then, this morning I needed a belt and have one hanging in my closet that hasn't fit in nearly two years (last time I tried, the ends wouldn't even meet). I decided just to see how close it was now and it actually fit! Granted it only made it to the first buckle hole but, it is nice to have some qualifiable evidence that all of my hard work is starting to pay off. I think I'm going to keep using this belt as my progress tool in between my monthly weigh, measure and pics. Can't wait to move down a few more notches.
