Well I finally got a new scale, and while I was looking forward to getting back on track with it, I was also scared to look at the number, knowing that even though I have definitely lost some lbs in the last 3 weeks, I also definitely gained some over the holidays, so I wasn't sure which would be reflected in the number on the scale.The last time I was on the scale was in September, and unfortunately the number today was a few pounds over that. Therefore, no matter what lbs I have lost recently, its not showing up yet. Normally this would have sent me into depression, and a "why do I bother?" attitude. I would have walked away from the scale and sat down with something yummy and said hell with it. This time was different though. I knew what to expect, and when I saw I hadn't lost anything, but gained, I just said to myself, well, that's because I am still losing what I gained over the holidays, and soon it will start to show what I am losing now. I can take my ring off, which I haven't been able to do for ages, and my pants are looser than a few weeks ago. And most importantly...I FEEL better. Ok, so now I have a starting point, and each week from here on out will be progress. I am ok with that.
