Happy Superbowl {win for the Hawks} day

Woohoo!! It is Super Bowl Sunday people. More importantly, ok maybe not MORE important it's time for me to fill you in on how my weight-loss has been going.

In all reality, I'm sure there aren't many people stopping by to read today. BUT before I head out to eat everything in sight today I'll tell you the exciting news.

So, here's the thing.... I haven't actually weighed myself in 2 weeks because when I weighed myself then, I hadn't lost a single pound. Needless to say I stopped working out because of it. I figured if I was not going to be losing weight AND was missing out on all my favorite foods this wasn't the road I was about to travel. I know all of you that actually know a thing or two about losing weight or being healthy are probably shaking your head right now. I am too, trust me. Because I did some research and learned about water retention as your muscles are growing, and how about the fact that sure I may not have lost POUNDS but that because I was building muscle.

I didn't want to let you all down so I still put on my progress pic clothes on Friday night and took my front and side pics. Here they are:


I was shocked.

I didn't realize how much less of a gut (aka preggo lookin belly) I had after literal only working out through half of the month! Here is last months pic to prove it!!


So it's back on people...... uh, after today mmmmkay?!

Enjoy your game day eats and

yes! this is why it's well advised to ditch the scale, especially during those first few weeks. it's a natural response for your body to retain water (body's protection during times of stress) and if exercise if fairly new to your routine, then that's what your body does -- it thinks your body is under duress and will therefore retain water, causing the scale to go up. but once your body adjusts and adapts to regular exercise, that goes away. this is why i never step on the scale -- it never takes into account the ONE TRUE thing that matters most: fat to muscle ratio. i have dropped a lot of dress sizes but i've only lost maybe 15-20lbs at the most. in the course of year, you really shouldn't drop more than that because the weight of fat you lost should be replaced with weight of muscle that you develop.

so go by inches lost only!! even your progress pictures are telling you that actual weight doesn't even matter -- your belly is shrinking even though the scale isn't moving. that thing is a lying whore -- throw it away and liberate yourself from the numbers :)
