Half a Pound - Gone!

Sunday, August 05, 2012

Why do I sound so excited about only losing a half a pound?

Well, as far as I can tell, I have a choice. I can either be thrilled, sad, or indifferent about this seemingly minor weight loss. I'll admit that after busting my tail all week and then seeing the scale barely move, I began to topple through the five stages of grief. Then I decided that it IS a loss. No, it's not some huge Biggest Loser number, but it did move the scale in the right direction - down.

With that said, I realize I can no longer choose sad and my choices are now thrilled, or indifferent. If I choose indifferent then I'm missing the point. Indifference brings a feeling of ho hum, in some way I failed, but I'll get over it. I can honestly say that in no way, shape, or form have I failed. I'm feeling better than I have in a long time. My workouts are going well and I can feel my endurance climbing. Last week I was able to go longer on the elliptical than I have ever been able to and that feels good. This makes me feel better, but how do I get to thrilled??
Oh, I forgot to mention that the other day I tried on my wedding ring and guess what? It fits again! THRILLED!

Onward we go...

    I can relate. I only lose 1/2 to .8 per week. Keep up the good work and you will get there.

    You've got the right attitude! Congrats on the 1/2 pound GONE!

    And as for the wedding ring....well that is a huge accomplishment.

    Keep on keeping on and you'll get where you're going.
