No Disappointment

Monday, January 25, 2016

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.

    My thoughts are when you know you are eating right and you know you are getting exercise then it doesn't matter what the scale says. It will show up and it does make a difference. And besides, you just feel better.
