I've been dieting and working out pretty consistently for almost 4 weeks now and I'm pretty proud of myself. I allow myself one splurge day a week and I don't go crazy. When I started, I decided I wasn't going to record measurements because I didn't want to get discouraged by the numbers. I decided I would weigh myself once every 2 weeks and that would be it. But even that gets discouraging (even though I know muscle weighs more than fat). I can tell a difference in the way my clothes are fitting, but one of my friends encouraged me to start taking my measurements to see the progress I'm making. Any thoughts??
