Not long ago, The scale would not move, no matter how much I spoke to it. It would not listen to reason, argument, or desperation. Those numbers just stared back at me silently. Almost as if I never said a word.
So, I spoke quietly and calmly at first. Then I began to get more demanding.
That scale could care less!
So, I blogged in pure frustration, "I am stuck."
Well, guess what?! I won the argument, eventually. It started on Sunday. That blessed scale moved down 1 LB. I thought I had gone to heaven! 1 LB, 1 LB!!
Then today (a total fluke, mind you!) I stood on that blessed flat scale, holding my breath and asking myself why was I weighing again only two days later?
And, I beat the scale at it's own game! I lost another 2LBS. 2 LBS! 2 LBS!!
3 LBS in less than a week!
So, here is a moment to share that the scale is NOT your friend, but it is not your enemy either. We all reach plateaus and feel frustrated, but do not despair, and PLEASE do not give up. The scale will move eventually.
Many blessings to all of my Sparkfriends and smile because you will win!!
You win when you feel less winded.
And, also when you have more energy.
Another win is when you notice your measurements have changed.
An aha moment when you actually feel "good."
Every step you take leads to a greater goal and ultimately a healthier future.
So, please don't let the scale be your be-all. It, isn't.
