The scale wouldn't budge!
Frustration does not begin to explain the feelings I was feeling. Anger, disappointment, despair, and bitterness were a few.
I feel great. I even feel stronger. So why, why wasn't the scale showing some sort of movement?
That's when I reached for the measuring tape. At the start of The Real You Program at the YMCA, I was measured. In fact, I was measured before, in the middle, and at the end of the program. Why wasn't I doing it now?
3.5 inches. I lost 3.5 inches from my waist and bust plus 4.2 inches from my hips.
Then it happened. Finally, a loss on the scale!
So, what do 19 pounds mean to me?
