I wrote a little pep talk on the Grey Wolves message board last night about not letting that darn scale define you or make you upset. The scale is just a messenger of what you are doing and how it is affecting your body. I knew that I was really writing it for me! I have had days of getting on the scale and being so happy that it was going down! I have had days that I was really disappointed and upset that it was going up or staying the same. I weighed in this morning. It went up by a pound. Well, that is disappointing for sure but, looking back at my week, I can see that I did not track my food a couple of days. I have had a lot of fibromyalgia and arthritis pain and fatigue this week and my exercise was down. When the pain goes up, I tend to snack more. I guess I think that will relieve the pain but it really does not! :) So, I know where I need to pick up the pace a little and where I need to write things down. I am not going to beat myself up but rather I will take this as a little lesson and I will do better next week!
