No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
No, it really is. I didn’t get on it this morning and see a weight I didn’t like, the darn thing just didn’t show ANYTHING. And, that, I think says a lot.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the 3 pounds I gained over the Holidays and it was really bothering me. I wanted to weigh myself to see if I had lost at least 2 of the 3 – but the scale had a different story for me to hear. (And why do Ilet 3 pounds matter so much when I have another 80 to lose?)
It was all about telling me to stop worrying about those numbers and to carry on with what I was doing- getting back on track and working out. To stop worrying about NUMBERS and keep my goals in mind. I know my jeans are fitting better, and I’m able to do more than I was before! I went for a mile long walk in the snowstorm we had the other day with my snow boots on with no problem. I shoveled the driveway without a break. I reach for veggies rather than crap (ok, so there is not crap in the house, but that’s it’s own victory). I cook healthy dinners as a rule now. We eat meatless at least once a week.
So I’m going to STOP thinking about that scale- in fact- GASP- I’m getting rid of it. There is a scale at my gym if I need to weigh in. I’m going to think that all these changes I’m making are a lot more than just numbers on the scale and kick some more butt. I have a pair of jeans I’m wanting to get into. That’s what I’m working for!
