So many times, when I am waffling or not giving this new lifestyle change 100% of my efforts, any thoughts I have about the scale are downright unpleasant. I dread getting on it, I dread looking at that number that will probably not have moved, and I dread thinking about the next time I am going to have to look at it again.
But it is absolutely amazing how giving 100% of your effort to this new lifestyle change can change how you feel about your scales!
For the last few weeks now, I have been giving it 100% by making small but effective changes. Today when I got on the scales I was rewarded once again. I am thrilled! I am now thirteen pounds lighter than my heaviest weight. This is the lightest I have been in three years!
Oh, I know that sometimes we have water weight or hormone fluctuations (especially as women) and the scales will still sometimes show me a number I do not care for. But the bottom line is that if we are eating healthy food and exercising, we will have to move towards a healthier weight that shows itself on our scales.
It really is about giving it 100% (did I mention that already?!?) and viewing it as a permanent change instead of a temporary "diet". I truly feel like I am on a very long journey, filled with ups and downs, and today I realize I am not only moving in the right direction on the scales, but also in my heart and my head. So thankful :)
