Well, most people go by the weight the scales say... Despite making an effort and eating more sensibly, cutting down on snacking, only drinking water and tea, for over 3 months, (I started before I joined Health Unlocked) and then last month starting the c25k programme (now half way) my weighing scales don't give me as much loss as I had hoped. HOWEVER, this morning I suddenly realised I can put on my work trousers with ease, (and my jeans now too, come to think of it, yday!) my wedding ring feels looser on my finger, I can actually slide it off rather than having to twist it to get it off! My face shape looks a bit slimmer, etc etc... and I have gone down a clothes size. I still have a VERY long way to go, but hey, for me, its a start to a longer healthier sustainable (the key word here, not a fad diet) life... for me, clothes size don't lie! The whole thing about BMI leaves one to ponder - not everyone "fits in the box" if you like - some slim people have heavy bones and some fat people are slimmer than those... BMI score isnt always accurate.
So, whats your take on this? Clothes size v weighing scales? I'd be interested to see what your opinions are! Let's have a debate!
