Numbers Don't Lie, or do they?

I'm finding it a little hard to believe that I've been following the New Rules of Lifting For Women strength training plan for a month now.  I finished workout 7A last night, which means I only have 3 more workouts left in Stage 1.  I'm not sure how that will work with my half marathon coming up on Sunday and then traveling for a week, but I might get the workouts in.  I'm not going to beat myself up though if I don't.

I had decided a few days ago that I wasn't going to measure or take "progress" pictures because, frankly, I didn't feel like I'd made any visible progress (I know I've gotten stronger because I'm lifting a lot more weight and the workouts really aren't very challenging at all - which means I'm not lifting heavy enough).  I certainly can't see any difference and my clothes are no less tight and today my weight was EXACTLY the same as it was a month ago (GRRRR).  There are definitely factors going into the fact that my scale hasn't moved in a month well, it's moved but up a little down a little but overall it's a wash.  My eating has been pretty crappy.  I haven't been tracking shit my stupid Livestrong app reminds me every freaking day at 6 pm that I haven't tracked, fraking technology.  

In any case, I decided WTF and measured myself this morning (no pictures though).  Now, maybe I didn't have the tape measure in exactly the same spots or something, but the numbers have changed.  If you have some weird curiosity as to what they are exactly, you can see them here (and please be kind - I don't post my weight because I like it).
  • Weight - unchanged
  • Bust - down 1/2"
  • Chest - down 1/2"
  • Waist - unchanged :(
  • Hips - down 1/2"
  • Right Bicep - down 1/4"
  • Right Thigh - down 1"
  • Right Calf - down 1/4"
I'll certainly take those numbers and hopefully at the end of next month I'll actually be able to SEE some changes.  Have you been following the NROLFW?  What do you think?  Seeing any progress?
