The great debate: Pounds vs Inches
Remember a few days ago when I was like, I'm back!!! Remember also when I told you I hadn't gained any weight since I last left you? Well, that's true I havn't gained any weight back, but I have gained inches. If you've been with me for a while you'll remember back in early 2010 I did body for life. If I remember correctly I lost 15 lbs and 15 inches. I think that's right because I remember being semi-dissapointed that I only lost 15 lbs, but I felt like that was sort of balanced out by losing 15 inches.
Well guess what, nearly all 15 inches are back on. Since I've been back blogging, I've been very aware of my food intake and all that comes along with "looking good naked". I took my measurements and I'll be dammed. The size of my body is nearly the same as it was a year ago at this time. I was frustrated and a little upset, but I think it proved to be a good lesson for me.
Weight is not everything. Yes, I know you know this, but let me say it again. Weight is not everything.
Would you rather be 10 lbs heavier than you are right now, but be a size smaller too? I would. Not that I want to think of being 10 lbs heavier, but you get the point. For me, being one size smaller would mean being able to shop in "most" stores. That would be life changing. I wouldn't be relegated to Old Navy, Target and Macy's.
So this time, I'm going to focus on the scale (becuase I can't NOT do that, let's be real) but I'm also really going to give credit to inches lost and energy gained. I want to feel awesome again. I want to feel like I can flip a monster truck wheel. I figure if I can feel like that again, and keep that feeling, than the pounds and inches will work their way off this body.
