For those of you who’ve been keeping track, you know I’ve been plateaued FOREVER. Almost forever. I’m staying OP – never eating my weeklies, and working off any points over my dailies. Gain an ounce, lose an ounce. Run, bike, Zumba my fanny all over the place and the darned scale wouldn’t budge. Wont’ budge I tell you.
I was reminded by my WWLeader that not all victories are scale victories (though they can often be the sweetest!) and that I needed to look at the
big shrinking picture. She urged me to measure myself and track that progress as well.
Since it’s been ages since I posted the stats on the blog, I pulled out the tape measure and WOW!!! I’ve shrunk! My overall weight has gone down just a pound or so in the past few months, but my BMI is lower, and my body fat percentage (calculated using circumference measurements all over and caliper measurements of skin folds is 25.0%, firmly at the lower end of normal! I’m almost considered to be in the “fit” range!!
