May I have this dance...

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Scale only showed -.5 today. I know it probably is more, but I am trying not to be so scale obsessed. I moved the scale out of the bathroom last week its only allowed in the bathroom for 24 hours. I'm not going to fiddle around seeing if it goes down. I know it will. I feel good about what I've accomplished this week, although I could have fit in some more veggies (so I am glad we have a veggie challenge this week). I'm letting it go... it could be water, it could be that I put in more strength training, it could be breakfast, it could be the scale gods have decided that it wasn't going to happen for me this week. But I know that it will go down, I know that my pants are looser, I know that I had to increase my workout intensity this week, I know that I could handle an increase in my workouts, I know that my cravings are under control, I know that I am stronger, I know my body has changed. Iíve done this dance a thousand times over the years... it feels different now and thatís a good thing.

    DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT let that scale get you down or stop you from dancing!!!

What's important here is this "But I know that it will go down, I know that my pants are looser, I know that I had to increase my workout intensity this week, I know that I could handle an increase in my workouts, I know that my cravings are under control, I know that I am stronger, I know my body has changed. " See what I did there? Yep, I used your words to convey my point...tricksey, no?

You feel better now, dontcha? Sure sounds like it to me and that matters more than any digits on any scale on any planet in the entire freakin' universe!

    I know its tough to not pay attention to that scale. I have the same problem. What a great idea moving it out of the bathroom. Every morning when I go to shower it is there staring at me saying "come on and step on and see if yesterday was successful". I just have to do like you say and realize sucess isn't just the number on the scale.
