When I googled *sigh of relief* the above photo came up. I gotta get me some of that ~ and soon.
I know what to do now, when the scale doesn't move for a week. Complain! Loudly!
So ~ this morning when I stepped on the scale, it was down almost 3 lbs.
Am I grateful? Not really, because that is where it should have been all along. And being that I didn't do 'anything' different or 'unusual' in the last almost week, it had no reason to do that. No reasonable, measurable, explainable reason, anyway.
Am I happy ~ hell, YES! But, I do have to figure out a 'plan' for this not happening again. I don't know, yet, if that will be only weighing once a week, or what it will be. The only problem with weighing once a week, is what if I pick the wrong day. Say I'd have picked yesterday ~ I'd be miserable during the entire next week. So, I'm not sure what I AM going to do but will give it some thought.
Spark Coach was talking, in my program, this morning, about 'helping other SP members and them helping us. Which was right up my alley because I told my son, this morning ~ even before I weighed ~ that I was so grateful for my SP friends. That the responses I got yesterday, the suggestions, the ideas, the thoughts, even the understanding of why I was whining, lol, really helped me a LOT. Luke had said he wished he could offer some 'information' or 'reason' why the scale was doing what it was doing, but he had no clue. That's when I said, "That's ok, my Spark friends know some answers that they are sharing with me ~ and they are helping me through this, even if they don't have any answers". It felt awesome to say that!! :)
So, I want to say a huge 'thank you' to everyone. Spark Guy is right. This IS a community and helping other is so much a part of our program. I try to do my share, too, and some days helping or encouraging someone else is really what makes my day and keeps me accountable.
I know I have messages to answer ~ and I will get to them. Eventually. :) My son is here and we are going shopping soon ~ so for now, I just want to wish everyone a GREAT weekend. Keep Sparking!!
