I am still sick today and home "vegging" on the couch again. I feel worse when I stand, but I am starting to feel better.
I have been surfing SparkPeople this morning, my favorite down time activity. I like to do this because I find it motivating, but also because it is a good positive reinforcement. I am not the only person struggling. I am not the only person with slow results. I am, most certainly, not alone.
I have been thinking about taking a break from the scale this week. Maybe even for a few weeks. I am considering sticking to my calorie range, continuing tracking what I eat and what exercise I do. It would be nice to feel the pride in the healthy life style and worry less about the scale. That is just a number. The real accomplishment are the other goals I have: Eating healthier, exercising more and living an overall healthier lifestyle. Then, when I do that, maybe in a few weeks I will be pleasantly surprised.
