So I made 1 mistake and had 1 incredible result!
So I threw a bit of a hissy fit on Thursday morning as I weighed in and found that my weight had gone up by 2lbs exactly, needless to say I wasn't too happy but I knew that the scale wasn't the whole answer.....
I had been feeling a bit bloated and for me to say that well doesn't feel so comfortable, lol....but I was. I took a look at what I was doing during the last week, and the only thing different was my protein shake. About a week and a half prior I decided to switch up the flavor and went with banana, I still stayed with the same brand as I love Elite!
Now, as you may or may not know what banana's can do to you, but let's leave it at bloated.....lol
So I stopped using it and went back to my regular vanilla and cookies and cream flavor, well within 24 hrs the bloat was gone! I was feeling great again. I didn't weight back in as I do that on Thursdays, why bother at this point as I went with how I was feeling.
I did however check my body fat and it was the exact same which told me that the weight on the scale wasn't fat. I also had Kelly check my waist for inches lost and well to my huge surprise I was down another 3.75 inches!!!
Yeah, I know! You know many people focus on the scale and some don't and my answer to that is some need to and some don't need to but you need to combine that with bodyfat check ins and how you look in the mirror! That's the true judge!
Sounds crazy right now, but just the fact that I changed that one thing in my meal plan was the result of a feeling that I delt with for over a week....and one that was a mistake but made me remember that, that one little change really had an affect on how I was looking and how I was feeling.
Yet I lost 3.75 inches in my waist and I couldn't believe it because of how I was feeling and looking in the mirror, it wasn't until 24hrs after the bloat went away and I could see the new lines in my mid-section.
Ahh, yes the mirror was my friend, get used to using different ways to measure your progress, it's so important to not just stick with one thing!
I still have a big goal ahead of me about 25 more lbs and I'm moving closer to it!
Are you moving closer to your goal, I would love to hear about it!!!
