Happy Dance!! ~~

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

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!! emoticon

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! emoticon emoticon

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.

    Kim, you are the true SP Spirit! One of my most critical tools is to post every day cause it keeps me focused and motivated but I notice not many members feel the same. Then I got your message today and my determination was renewed! I am ready to face the scale tomorrow and give my SP plan a fresh start. Thank you and big hugs ...

    Congrats! Your body just follows its own timetable sometimes but if you stick with it, the weight DOES come off. Way to persevere!
