Weigh Day!

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Yes it is that day again. I have stayed away from the scale all week. So I open my eyes and peek at the clock. It is 5:30 am. What day is it? It is Saturday the dreaded weigh day! Can anyone relate to this feeling. So I get up and head toward the bathroom. As I prepare to step on the scale my daughter knocks and says there is a car that has been parked in the back with headlights on since 4:00 am. So now I am distracted from my first purpose. I dial 911 and wait for the police to arrive. Then life starts to get in the way and I forget. When I finally remember it is almost 11:00 am. That is how it works with weight gain also. We get distracted and just start doing things and we then eat distracted and wonder why weight-loss is time consuming. It is not that weight-loss and getting healthy is time consuming but it requires that we focus and use time that we would otherwise waste on some other distracted activity. So I finally get on the scale and it is down 2 lbs. I must be honest internally I hoped for more. Yet realistically 2 lbs lost while eating more healthy is the best thing I could ever hope for. My caloric intake is more than I have ever been allowed on any diet.

    You're doing wonderfully! Two pounds is great! Typically, about 1/2 lb to 1 lb per week is doing well.

No matter what, there are two pounds you're no longer carrying. THAT is victory!!
