Fitness Friday – Non scale successes

As you know I am currently taking part in DW Fitness Festive Fitness Challenge

I don’t know what it is about this challenge but I am really enjoying it and taking it head on

Maybe it’s the fortnightly tips we get to try something different or maybe it’s the fact that I can write these posts and get feedback but I feel I am doing really well

I’ve lost 8.65% of my body weight so far!!

It’s not just about the scales though

My clothes are so much looser, especially my trousers. ย So much so that I am going to have to get new work trousers as they keep falling down!

People have also been commenting about how great I look and that they can tell I’ve lost weight

My stomach is definitely flatter but I still want to tone it up as I feel it’s a bit wobbly still

I’ve really enjoyed trying different exercises too, it’s easy to get caught up in the habit of doing the same thing all the time


Are you trying to lose weight for the festive season? ย What have been your non scale successes?


My new exciting health, wellbeing & fitness linky with Laura’s Lovely Blog & Life of My family & Me starts on Monday

It’s called Me, Myself & I and will be a monthly linky

    Luckily I have always managed to keep my weight at a decent number without having to try. I am sure that will all change now I’ve hit the big 30! I have no willpower whatsoever though so I imagine I will find it tough! It’s great you’re enjoying the challenge so much! Time for a new wardrobe?!

    Non scales is definitely the way to go for me! Whilst you can’t beat the satisfaction of seeing the numbers go down, it’s not that accurate a measure of your success particularly if you’re training. As you’ve found inches is where it’s at. Well done ๐Ÿ™‚

    Non scales are the best for sure! Ohhh I like the sound of this monthly linky. It might give me the motivation I need to tone up!! I have definitely started to let myself go! I love the name of it too. xx

    Congratulations on your weight loss so far, and your non-scale successes, it sounds as though you’re doing amazingly well. Unfortunately I think my scales and non-scales are probably going the wrong way at the moment, the cold makes me comfort eat! Best of luck for the new linky xx

    Well done, that is amazing body fat loss! My scales don’t tell me that info, would be nice to know though!
    I’m back on the New You Plan tomorrow, I’ve let it slide recently, just for being content. I’m still in my target stone bracket but would rather be dead on! Bring on the last slide to Christmas! Good luck with the challenge! Sim #MeMyselfandI #WeightLossWednesday x
