Tomorrow I weigh in for BLC 21, I'm nervous and I'm excited all at the same time. I can remember when I hit a plateau and how I felt defeated. How I then just gave in to all the temptations around me and, frankly said forget it, I will never be the size 5 I want to be.
Today I vow no matter how many set backs I have I won't beat myself up over them anymore. I will sleep it off, and get back up and start again.
I was 216 lbs at the beginning of November 2012 I am now 198, well hopefully 196 tomorrow. I will keep pushing, because this woman wants to be great!
Measure without the scale! This article was an eye opener.
We should already know from the years and years of"experience" not to always go by the scale. We need to learn to measure, not just our waist or our hips but our accomplishments, our healthy eating habits, do your clothes fit looser? How are your emotions? Do you view yourself different ?I know that I will hit a plateau, and I vow that I won't turn to a bag of chips to heal myself from feeling like I failed. Just because the scale has stopped moving doesn’t mean that you’ve hit a plateau in reaching your goals. Don’t give up out of frustration—all healthy behaviors are well worth the effort. Whether it’s better sleep at night or more energy throughout the day, start listening to the signs your body gives you that all of your hard work is paying off!
