Good morning, hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!
Like a lot of Saturdays, I walked into town yesterday. It is about a mile to the town center and I walk there as fast as I can to combine exercise with shopping at the farmers' market. I walk back as fast as I can but weighted down with shopping I am usually a lot slower on the way home. Walking down the road I noticed that my beloved jeans (stretch jeans that didn't need to stretch over my bum for some time now) tried to follow gravity towards the ground.
Today I measured myself: weight slightly up but hip and waist down about half an inch from last time! No wonder my pants are falling off and I can fit in some old trousers again that were too tight for a while.
It just goes to show: you cannot rely on the scales. Measuring and the fit of your clothes gives valuable feedback, in particular when the scales seem to get stuck.
