Why the scale DOESN'T matter and why pictures DO.


Saturday, October 06, 2012

I gained two pounds this week-and regardless of the fact whether it be water or muscle, hormones or sodium related, I am FINE with it. Because the scale doesn't DEFINE me-it doesn't say that my cholesterol is a healthy number (total 145, good 65) or my skin is healthy. It also doesn't tell me of my endurance when sprinting, or my strength when I bench press heavy.And while those two pounds may be gone next week's weigh in-I don't care. Because the pictures tell me that I am moving in the RIGHT direction.


A year ago....



This past week. Jillian Michaels, P90X, Zumba, Supreme 90, heavy weights, sprinting, walking, incline treadmill combined with low carb/low glycemic eating helped me. So phooey on the scale!!! emoticon


Off to do Banish Fat/Boost Metabolism--have a BLESSED week all!

    Awesome!!!!! emoticon You look amazing! emoticon I'm really trying to work on my emotional attachment to the scale and reading this gives me hope that someday I'll be able to see it for what it is, just one kind of measurement of my progress, and not the whole picture. emoticon

    You are right, the scale is not the whole story. flexibility and balance and attitude will get you where you want to go. You're doing great, and you look great too. Keep going! ;)
