I've been so focused on the complete lack of movement on the scale, that I forgot there are other ways to be successful! Take my pants, for example... I bought these pants about two months ago. They were pretty tight across my hips -- I usually only wear them with a longer sweater. Today though, I noticed I kept having to hitch them up, and so I went to the bathroom to do "the test." Yes, these pants that were once too tight will not slide right off without unbuttoning or unzipping. Pretty cool! Dare I say all the strength training is paying off?
