The last few days I have been feeling pretty down. I have been keeping up with my exercise and eating right but the scale has not budged. I know that I am a slow loser and that it takes a while before I see the pounds drop but I can't help but feel like all my hard work is for naught.

This morning I woke up and for some reason my mood has changed. Maybe it was because I could feel the burn from my workout yesterday. Maybe I just woke up with a clear head. Or maybe I just needed to get over it! Anyway, I am not going to let myself get in the way of my success. I know that if I stick to it and continue to meet my goals I WILL see change and I WILL feel different.

There are so many positive effects from eating better and working out that have nothing to do with my weight. I have more energy during the day. My mind is sharper. I sleep better at night. I don't crave sweets. I drink lots of water. I need to focus on all of these benefits and trust that everything else will follow.
