Stop measuring yourself in terms of weight or amount of pounds gained or lost!
That's just a number and it can change daily. It's so frustrating to step on the scale only to step off completely discouraged and disillusioned. You've been eating right and exercising yet that number hasn't budged. Or worse yet, it's gone up!
What happens then? You become aggravated. You want to give up. You order up the biggest, unhealthiest meal you can think of. You eat an entire container of ice cream or a whole bag of chips.
Now you're on an endless cycle of emotions and sabotaging all your efforts.
BECAUSE OF A NUMBER!!
The best way to gauge weight gain or weight loss?
Take the Jeans Test.
How do your jeans fit? Are they too tight? Ask yourself why. Perhaps it's that time of the month and you're simply retaining water. That will all go away in a few days. Maybe you're eating too many white flour, white sugar carbs or a had a few too many drinks at Happy Hour. That will make you feel bloated, as well. Or maybe, just maybe, you're eating more than what your body can burn. Time to start exercising.
If your jeans fit fine, good for you! Just maintain your healthy way of eating to keep them fitting perfectly.
If your jeans feel loose or keep getting looser, you're definitely losing pounds and inches. Keep it up! It's almost time to buy a new pair of jeans!!
