Okay so I am three weeks into my SP journey and have been feeling really good about my commitment and my progress, until this morning when I stepped on the scale for my weekly weigh in.
Weighing in can be tricky for me because my mood and attitude can be influenced by the numbers on the scale. First week here I lost four pounds, felt euphoric, full of hope and promise, motivated to focus and be diligent on this journey. Second weigh in last Monday, down 2 more pounds, hoped for more but was pretty much okay with that because I was moving in the right direction. Committed to continue to be diligent and work hard all week.
Great week last week with lot's of exercise, checking in here, getting to my food addiction recovery meetings, meditation and mindfulness, didn't go over my calorie count on any given day. Positive outlook and attitude! Really looked forward to weighing in today after having such stellar week and getting through a holiday clean and committed.
Number on the scale today? Same a last week. I have been telling myself all morning that I am okay with that, that it's reasonable to maintain after losing 6 pounds during the first 2 weeks. Figured I'd better check in though because this is where the path forks. Which direction will I go. Give up and say it's not worth working so hard or stay the course knowing that I won't show a loss every week and that this is the time when I need to redouble my efforts and commitment and keep pushing though?
I am not working today so I can easily get to my lunchtime Zumba class. My food is all planned and committed for the day and I have gotten a start on my water. I just ordered 3 of Coach Nicole's fitness DVD's and I am sharing my feelings here and asking for support. I really want to keep my focus on the positive strides that I can make today and not focus overly much on the numbers on the scale.
