I Enjoy Sharing Sweaty Shoes With Strangers

I went bowling this past weekend.  Here are two photos for comparison:
February 2011 (142 lbs)  Size 8 Jeans                     March 2012 (141 lbs)  Size 6 Jeans
I don't wear those size 8 jeans anymore.  They're too big.

Do you see a difference?  Perhaps the extra toning and weight lifting has changed my shape a little?

This is a good reminder for me that it's not all about the number on that scale.

  2. This is a really great entry - especially for those at the home stretch in losing. I've been having the same thoughts myself lately and it became very clear that losing weight is not the end of it. Now I need to work hard to "carve out" a new, fitter me as well. I suppose that can be approached as a new challenge.
    Thank you for the pictures - it gives all these thoughts such a great perspective and visual aid.

  4. Someday I may get to a size 8! But I do know that toning is the key thing! I can't feel that! Way to go! Love reading about where I can go and that it is possible!

  6. Wow... It is hard to believe that is just a one pound weight difference! What an impressive before/after. Yay for toning!

  9. What an incredible difference and you're right, things will move around and redistribute. I've been around 180 for more than a month now and I still get things fitting differently even though the scale isn't going down. You are such an inspiration! Thanks for sharing. Also, this blog post title made me laugh. :)
