Weight vs. Inches

So, today would normally be my weigh in day...but because I have been so frustrated with the whole weight vs inches thing, I think I am going to skip this weeks weigh in and see if going every two weeks will help out.

So, last night we went out to dinner with some friends and their little boy. She is also expecting=) We went to Applebees. I suggested it because I had already looked up the menu and had found what I wanted under a certain amount of calories. And guess what?? I also asked for a to-go box right at the beginning and halfed my meal before I ate it! I felt so good!! My hubby looked at me like I was crazy, but after I explained it to him in the car he was very proud=)

Now that I have been losing inches I'm starting to get people saying, "Wow! You look great!" and all Ican say is "Thanks, but I'm not even close." Why do I do that? Why can't I just say, "Thanks! I'm trying really hard!" I even told my hubby that I am tired of people telling me I look good because to me...I don't. I still see my huge muffin top and chubby face. His reply was "Inches show honey." I know that! But I haven't had a high self-esteem in a long time!

So, I am still upset about the whole inches vs weight issue. Don't get me wrong...I am still going to keep working at it and doing the same thing, but I'm not going to be fully happy until I see at least two or three more pounds leave.

Confession: I did eat a few french fries off of my sons plate last night.

Cheer: I walked an extra 30 minutes after I did my Couch to 5k last night! Week 3, Day 1 complete!!


  1. ugh weight vs. inches.. i'm the complete opposite! in the very first three-four weeks of my weight loss journey i lost ten pounds and didnt' see a thing :( heartbreaking..and now i've gained some back..so of course still don't see a thing! HA
