I was worried about stepping on a scale today. I have been working crazy hours recently and while I have maintained my food and workouts, I just don't feel like I've been able to give it my ALL... only given it 90% at times. I have not been getting enough sleep many nights and am really feeling the affects. My work is deadline driven = long hours as needed.
So when I stepped on the scale I was trying to remind myself that ANY progress is good. I had to step on the scale twice to make sure I was reading it correctly :: I have lost 4.6 pounds since the last time I weighed myself less than three weeks ago!! I only weigh myself once or twice a month because I get disappointed easily - it's much better for me this way. I plan to buy a scale soon to keep myself in line, but I don't think I'm ready yet. I would be too compulsive if I had a scale right now.
I am so stinking proud of myself right now!! This is BIG for me as it's the first time in my life that I was able to lose weight. I've always gone up, little by little. I'm so inspired by all of the supportive folks on SparkPeople and the wealth of knowledge at my disposal. I feel so blessed to have stumbled across SparkPeople. I am now 10 pounds away from my first major goal - A HEALTHY BMI!! When I started to get serious about living healthier after New Years, I was just one BMI point away from being in the obese weight range and it scared me! I have seen too many people around me suffering from obesity, heart issues, diabetes, etc... two who lost their battles recently. I knew I had gained weight and was 'overweight' for my height but OBESE! ME?!?!?
I say HELL NO and NEVER AGAIN!!
