On the Road: Checking Weight Loss Progress

On my trip a few years ago, I really made an effort to lose weight. At that time and still today I try to get in at least an hour of exercise each day no matter where I am. While I was at home, I adjusted my scale to match my doctor's scale to make sure I was always aware of my weight, but I did not have that advantage on the road. Although I knew I was losing weight, I did not know how much. My daughter came up with a great idea. She gave me some jeans that were too big for her. When I tried on these jeans for the first time, I was not able to button them. Over the weeks I was still in California, I tried on the jeans one time a week to see what progress I had made. Now the jeans are too large for me and are very loose. Even though I did not know how much weight was lost, I still knew I was on track.

Another way to assess weight loss progress is to use a belt. I do not mean that as a means of punishment!! I was able to determine if I was losing weight by the number of new notches I had to use. I finally had to get a new belt!!!
