Slow Progress is Still Progress

I realize I forgot to share my Omron and Scale numbers with you yesterday.  It was a busy day, and I was dealing with a cranky baby.  Without any further delay, here they are.  I weighed in at 194.5, which means I lost half a pound.  Of course, my first inclination is to say, “ONLY HALF A POUND?”  I recognize, though, that slow progress is still progress.

Here’s a look at my measurements…


2014 Measurement Tracker


While the scale only moved half a pound, my body fat index dropped by 1.5%, which is awesome.

Because of the snow, we’ve been unable to go to the gym.  So, I’ve been working out at home with the kids.

Last night, we were finally able to go to church.  My friend, Tammy, took my picture for the new church directory.  It turned out pretty well, I think.

As I said, my progress is slow, but it’s still progress.

How are your 2014 SMART Goals coming along?

  7. progress is progress. think how mad you’d be if you had GAINED half a pound!

  8. I’ve done the 30 day shred and saw GREAT results, both on the scale, in my clothes and in my fitness level. I loved that it was only 20 minutes a day, because I have a really hard time committing to exercise.

  9. RIGHT!!! Slow progress IS still progress:) Keep going sweetie!!

  10. I know you’ve done this before, so you know what you’re doing. You’d better believe slow progress is still progress!

    I am in the same boat right now!

  13. Love that your kids are getting involved! I am also on a journey and think I’ll start keeping better measurements so even if I’m not seeing it on the scale I’m getting more than just visual confirmation.

  14. That’s awesome when you see progress so fast in the measurements! Keep up the great work!
