And on the third month she smiled.
Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Today marks the end of three months on SP and I must say it was an exciting morning. I set my alarm five minutes early just so I could do all my measuring, weighing, and recording before I left for work. And the results are:
Total Weight Loss: 35 lbs.
Waist Inches Lost: 7.5
Hip Inches Lost: 5
This is exciting. I was feeling like I was in a rut and caught myself debating sabotage at least once each day this weekend (Friday - Sunday). We're talking full fledged, gorging on temptation sabotage. And while I did tempt myself, I didn't enjoy it within the first few bites and stopped. I was losing momentum and concerned I was retreating to the old comfort zone; so having such a great monthly weigh and measure day was a big deal. A really awesome, motivating, big deal. It has rewarded my good decisions and reinforced my journey's progressed.
I realize I'm letting the numbers govern a bit of my emotions today, but sometimes we need that. It's the progress that has bought me a sense of pride and so I will take today and the next day and so forth in strides, remembering that hard, consistent work is worth it. And, yeah, I'm worth it too.
