Weight Loss Success: 25 things celebrated since losing 100 lbs

I started a list of 25 things that have improved since losing 100 lbs to celebrate my weight loss success.  This list is part 2 of 4.  My first weight loss success list of 25 can be found by clicking on HERE.  I plan to have a total of 100 things listed to celebrate my weight loss success of losing 100 lbs.  I haven’t gotten to 100 lbs lost yet and I’m only 2.2 lbs away.

Weight loss success is not just the number on the scale.  When you sum up your weight loss success to be the number on the scale, you will get so frustrated and want to stop.  I have been developing muscle and losing inches in my pants but have been staying the same weight.  February I made onederlander (under 200 lbs) but I have gone from a size 14 to size 10 pants with only 4 lbs lost during that time.

I had the opportunity to listen to Rachel Cosgrove on A Healthy Revolution Virtual Conference.   She talked about how women can drop two sizes without focusing on the scale because of strength training, eating the right foods and not being a restrictive diet.  I feel my muscle tone has helped me to go down in sizes.  Fat does not have firm structure but muscle does.

Listening to Rachel Cosgrove helped me to feel that I was accomplishing a lot but in a different way (non-scale victories).  It’s healthy to celebrate your weight loss success with non-scale victories.  I feel it has helped me to stay motivated and focused.

Now to my list.  I have included 26-50 improvements since my weight loss.  Celebrate your weight loss success with your own list or a list of the things you want to accomplish.  Stay tuned for the next 25 as I near towards my 100 lbs lost goal.  Cheer me on by commenting below.
