Results are motivating!

The pic is from the day of my first weigh-in  as weighing 150 lbs.

Current weight: 138 (-1.0 lbs, actually I lost 1.5 lbs of fat and gained 1 lb of muscle. I did really good this week. My eating was really clean -Except for Easter but that is a given- Tuesday AND Wednesday I managed to not have anything besides protein and veggies for dinner... I'm starting to feel like I can control that part of myself now... We'll see how this next week and weekend goes.)

If you're not already, I highly recommend having measurements taken. Sometimes your weight can fluctuate and go up or stay the same, but your measurements really show off the work you've done. Honestly, the numbers changing on measurements can really make the difference in keeping your momentum.

I've had major issues before of losing momentum, but I'll tell you what... Seeing those numbers change really help keep me mentally focused. So, just for the fun of it here are mine:

Wow! Seeing that I lost 4 1/2 inches off my waist is so motivating!!! Makes me want to get myself to the gym and continue! I have 17 lbs to go, the goal is still to be there by the end of June. :D
