It's not all about the NUMBER
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Though I'm slightly disappointed in my 0.2 lb gain this week I am thrilled by the changes in my body that I see when I look in the mirror. I used to be completely obsessed with the numbers on the scale, but I have slowly learned to recognize the NSV as well. For the first time since I got pregnant with my son (16 months ago) I was able to see definition in my arms! I"m so excited. There really is a muscle under there. I"m looking forward to working hard and maybe some more will appear!! My loose saggy post-pregnancy belly is less jiggly and my pj shorts are starting to fall off. So to me this outweighs my negative feelings about my 0.2 lb gain.
I would be lying if I said my nutrition was perfect this week. It wasn't as bad as it used to be, but a few days are unacceptable for the new healthy lifestyle I"m trying to live. So I will work hard this week and track all of my food and hopefully next week I will be celebrating victories both on and off the scale :)
