Using a tape measure for success...

/hihi  So last month I got out a simple tape measure from a cheap sewing kit and measured all sorts of body parts. I wrote down the measurements in inches for my arms, waist, hips, thighs, stomach and butt.

  I figured that it might be another great way to see my progress, especially if the scale was the same but I was still working out. Well, guess what?! It IS a great tool- the scale has been the same for a while, but when I measured myself again over the weekend I found out I'd lost an INCH off my waist and hips!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /XD

I had NO idea :D I mean I thought I looked a bit better in the mirror but I had no proof that anything had I do! My goal is to lose some inches off my thighs next :)

This weekend I got up and worked out on Saturday morning, feeling pretty proud of myself :) I find soooo many other tempting things I'd rather do on a Saturday!!

Still at 133 pounds, oh well....keep trying!! I did go out TWICE this weekend to say goodbye to my darlin friend /no who is moving to Cali! I'm sure that wasnt tooo great for the waistline, but it was good for the heart :)
