Weigh n with gain. Not sad at all. BLESSED!

Sunday, October 07, 2012

You would think a girl like me would be upset over this number, but Iím not upset. Iím not even disappointed. And no, this isnít a big excuses; because what I saw below my feet was a good number to me. Yeah! Iím up. But the truth of the matter is. I know what I am up from. Yes! I had an outing with my kids that involved food Ėpizza and I must admit. I felt pretty darn good. Now, that number wonít be around next weigh in. 179 wonít even be a part of my number. By Thursday that number is going to change big time, and I will share in a blog. Because I know me and I know how my body handles waste and a lot of other things. I also know how my body processes the wrong stuff. I had a stressful week last week, and now I can get back to doing me fully. My plans are in place, and I wonít let this 1 number get in my way. Itís better than 183 I tell you that much. Itís way better than 183, and that could have been a bigger gain of the week, but it wasnít. You see, we take what is giving, and we take it as a blessing. This is about getting healthy with me. My non scale victory is inches lost in my hips and my waist. So, am I upset. NO! I'm blessed. And I know what that number is all about below my feet. It's not even a cheat. It's just life and how I choose to process my defeat.

    well said! exactly how i have been feeling about my recent week. sure i can always give more but there are times that i know i just wont. good thing that we are still keeping tracking and keeping ourselves in check the best we can during that time.
i'm proud of you even though there wasn't a loss. :) this whole thing is a never ending journey and we have so many things to learn along the way. u are making great progress! wtg!

  I am happy for you too. I looked at the scale today and was not as happy as you. Not discouraged though, just not happy. I do feel motivated that there are others like me. Keep going girl.
