Non-Scale Victory!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I only lost one pound this week. I could be bummin' but I am not.

Let me explain. When I first started SP this past June, I wore size 24 shorts, then I went down to size 22 and now I wear a size 20!



To celebrate my non-scale victory, I went to Clinique and bought a lipstick in a pretty new shade. When I put it on, I literally said out loud, "I am starting to feel like myself again!"

I feel like the old me, but at the same time it feels like a new beginning. It feels like spring after a long, cold winter. I am so excited.

    that's great !! I too have noticed that I even bought perfume this last month...... its strange how I had just slowly stopped wearing it ..... I guess I was so disgusted with myself that I didn't wear lipstick or perfume or even CARE !! Its amazing how it all just trickles on down through all aspects of your life on many different levels !!

    Clothing size always tells me more than the scale. I know the scale victories will be there -- after all, I have a lot of weight to lose in order to be fit -- but the non-scale victories are more meaningful because they translate all the hard work and effort into something practical, like a new clothing size, or feeling good when you walk down the street.

Feeling "yourself" again is wonderful. Good for you!

It isn't about the scale - EVER!!!
How you feel is #1 and a smaller size? Yeah...Awesome too, but mostly because it makes you FEEL so good!!!
