The scale is not your firend

Friday, January 18, 2013

So I checked my weight this morning and I stayed the same weight. BUMMER!!! I need to realize that the scale isn't going to help or motivate you, and your real success is in the way your clothes fit and how you feel. I have a new goal to try to check my weight once a week. That will be a hard one.

    The scale is a tough one sometimes.. First off I want to tell you how much I miss you! You have no idea.. I weigh everyday. Everything I have ever read says NOT to but I use it to my advantage. I usually can tell when it will go down as you can tell how you feel and if you know you are working hard it will show. When and if it goes up.. this can be a number of things that may or may not have to do with your hard work!! Such as hormonal fluctuations, water weight, and or an increase in muscle! If I see that it doesnt change I just think to myself.. I must push on and push harder! And it will eventually show! Love you honey.. you look fantastic whatever you are doing!!!

    I was so psyched last week when I stepped on the scale and had lost even with the little goofs I had made during the week. Motivated me to stick closer to my program this week. I just knew that if I had lost last week, this week's weigh-in should be even better. I was feeling really good about things...until I stepped on the scales. I hadn't lost a thing! And I had worked so hard and was so good all week. I got mad and discouraged and let those negative feelings ruin me for the rest of the mood, my activity level and my eating. I didn't post anything yesterday, but did post today what I ate yesterday...mainly I could see what I did to my program...a bit of shock therapy you might say. Ok...yesterday is what it is and I can't change it now. Learn from my mistake. Be better prepared for those disappointments and don't let the scale be my only guide of success. Today is a new day, the sun is FINALLY shining again and I'm in charge of what I do with this day. It will be a good day!!!!
