First Weigh-in of 2016

Sunday, January 03, 2016

Okay. I rejoined Sparkpeople on December 21, 2015. I had a long hiatus (most of 2015) and had regained 23 pounds. Health was suffering; it was time. Since then, I have had one weigh-in and I am down 2 pounds. Yay! My next weigh-in is tomorrow morning. My first for 2016. Let me just say my scale is a 'frenemy'. It is a friend when I am down and my enemy when it stays the same or, God forbid, posts a gain. I have had trouble in the past by allowing the scale to dictate how I feel about myself. I've decided that ends right now. Whatever the number, of course I hope it's a loss, I am resolved to be okay with it. I am eating right, started exercising (slowly but I am moving), journaling and tracking. All positive things. Things I want to remember when I get on the scale tomorrow. The scale is one way to measure my success but not the ONLY measure. So, of course, I am hoping the scale went down but I won't let it bring me down if it did not. Spark on!

    emoticon This is, unfortunately, Not A One Way Journey. Sometimes the Dumb Scale does go Up, even when we are doing everything "Right" and, Sometimes we make Bad Choices. But it is all part of the Journey -- Enjoy The Ride!

    I did the same thing. Spent the last 1/2 of 2015 stress eating and regaining 22 of what I lost. Started over yesterday and hope for good things. Be patient with yourself, you can do it!
