Over 100 days since committing to #FattoFitCLE and for awhile, I was getting a bit discouraged.

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?

Don't let the scale dictate your progress #FattoFit


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!
