Seeing and feeling results

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Consistency is its own reward insofar as it gives me something to feel proud of, regardless of what shows up on the measuring tape or scale. I've been working out every morning for the past 5 days and it feels great. I feel like a woman in control of her life.

I also feel as though I look a bit trimmer and more toned, but there's been no change on the scale or in my measurements. No matter - I feel better, and that's valuable in and of itself. It hasn't been that long since I rededicated myself to tracking and made a firm commitment to morning exercise. The "objective" results will come in time.

    It sounds like you have already earned so much with your hard work. Confidence is something you can hold on to at any weight. Knowing that YOU CAN be consistent and set and reach goals beyond the scale is a great feeling.

  I feel the same way. I've been on Sparkpeople since March and I've lost about 5 pounds. I was disgusted with the scale, but like you I was consistent with my workout and my food tracking and noticed that I do look trimmer and toned and have been getting a lot of compliments. So, it's not all about the scale, it's about the consistency. So stay consistent and yes, the results will come.
