21 DAY CHALLENGE - Day 21, January 27
I have looked into the mirror lately and am liking what i am seeing. From Jan 1 to 27 I had lost about 3kg. Which doesn’t sound like much as far as KG are concerned, but it’s roughly 6 lbs. That doesn’t sound like a large number either, but I will challenge you to buy 6 lbs of sugar, throw it into a backpack and walk around all day with it. See what kind of a difference 6 lbs really makes.
Since November 2011 I have lost a total of 7 kg. A friend of mine, Crystal, blogged about measuring her weight loss success by more than just a scale. It’s hard to stop thinking of health success as anything but inches lost or pounds dropped. Ask yourself, when was the last time you read an article in a fitness magazine that didn’t talk about the above to measurements? Offhand, I can’t recall. When I did a Google search there was only one article I really liked.
And while I am conscious about the points in the article, I still feel frustrated and disappointed whenever the numbers don’t change in my favour. But when I looked in the mirror in January and over the last couple months I can see the changes in my clothes. I can see that I’m looking better in my skinny jeans. While no one has actually complimented me on any changes, I know that when I work out I feel like I have more energy to give to my work outs. I also have tracked my runs and made a mental note of the weights I lift and the reps, and each week I’m able to do a little more.
So yeah, today I feel good.
And goal completed.
