Don't let the scale spark a bad mood!
Monday, February 23, 2009
I'm fairly new to SP, and have had really good weigh-ins for my first 3 weeks - losing more than my goal of 2 lbs per week. My fourth week, not feeling as if I slacked in any way in the week leading up to my weigh-in day, I hadn't even lost a pound.
I know that in the past this would have upset me - most likely even set me back. I would have declared a "cheat day" and been in a bad mood for at least the next few days, making it difficult to be active or exercise. I also probably would have boycotted SP out of guilt!
This was not the case at all! I feel good about myself because I didn't let the scale determine my mood like I always have in the past. Not reaching my goal of 2 lbs per week didn't throw me off. I accepted the number on the scale, kept my mood up, and continued to try! I'm okay with whatever the scale happens to say on future weigh-in days, and feeling okay about it gives me confidence to continue towards my goals!
