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 I’m not upset. I’m not even disappointed. And no, this isn’t a big excuses; because what I saw below my feet was a good number to me. Yeah! I’m 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 –pizza and I must admit. I felt pretty darn good. Now, that number won’t be around next weigh in. 179 won’t 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 won’t let this 1 number get in my way. It’s better than 183 I tell you that much. It’s way better than 183, and that could have been a bigger gain of the week, but it wasn’t. 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.

    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.

    Good for you, Lynn! What an upbeat blog. The scale shouldn't ruin our lives, we are blessed no matter what the thing says.
