That dreaded scale strikes again...

Monday, December 03, 2012

Well - it's happened. A gain when I expected a loss. So now what? Eat till I puke? Completely throw in the towel?

NOPE! Not this time! Why not? Because I can FEEL changes taking place. My endurance had grown exponentially! My flexibility has increased by leaps and bounds. Even my hubby said he noticed some tightening going on!

Now I sure am not going to was VERY disappointing to get on the scale and see a 1 1/2 pound gain. Especially after all of the hard work I have put in over the last week. But I am NOT letting it defeat nor define me. I am moving on with what I had planned. I am drinking my water. I am eating healthy foods. I am exercising DAILY.

Moving forward...pressing on...kicking butt and taking names! LOL

Even if this is a *little* bit self talk...I really am not going to stop. I don't even feel the need to. I am going to continue doing what I've got to do, and use other things besides the scale to help me recognize that I AM making progress. It is hard, but I am going to do it.

On a completely side-note, I am eight days into my exercise Spark Streak, and still going strong! I am almost 1/60 done! It's all in the bag! :-)

I got this. I know it! I've made the commitment, and I will see it through! emoticon

    Good Luck and I know you can do it. We all have those days when that liar of a scale makes us feel small, but don't worry and just measure and go by how you feel and how your clothes fit. Keep Pushing.
