Did the scale disappoint you aGAIN this week? Read on...

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I had an 'aha!' moment recently that may help you. Whether you lost, gained or stayed the same the last time you weighed yourself, something I read from SP in an email has really 'stayed' with me and maybe it will help you too:

'Trust the process. As long as you are embracing healthy habits, changes are happening within you.'

That really struck me as truth. If I am consistently doing the right things for my health, my health IS improving...even if the scales or the tape don't reflect it yet. I know I am doing drastically better than before SP and it can get frustrating when I 'did the work' all week or all month and the scale refuses to reward me the way I think it should. Now, when the scales don't behave, but I know I've been doing things right, I remind myself to trust the process.

If you are feeling frustrated or disappointed...Please don't give up! This is a process, not an event. It will take time. Just keep making healthy choices every day...keep doing the work the process! You can do it! You really can! Have a great, health-minded week.

As for me, I will trust the process, because...quitting is not an option.

The scale gets stuck quite often for me.

    This has been a frustrating week for me, too. I feel like I must be doing something wrong, since it's only my second week and I'm WAY overweight - why isn't the weight coming off easily?

But I like what you said - Trust the process!

    I like that quote. If the scale and tape don't have any changes but we do keep our healthy lifestyles, try to look at other aspects, especially on daily non-exercise activities - can endure longer workouts or able to walk up lots of fleets of stairs or no more puffing and huffing when lifting up heavy groceries or you can look at your rump much easily by twisting your body around (means you are more flexible, hehe) etc etc

    It is easy to get discouraged but you make a great point. As long as you are doing the things you should to get healthier, weighing is a point in time exercise. Trust the process and eventually weight loss and a more tone physique will come. emoticon
