April 12th, 2013 - Maintaining I'm fine with that! (w/photo)

Friday, April 12, 2013

So my bestie in the world tells me last week after my weigh in and being 7 ounces away from Onederland...."Oh that's just a poo away". I'm here to tell you I've been doing that all week and still no change on the scale. However I'm fine with that and the reason why is because...

1) I haven't gained
2) I haven't been able to get to the gym like I wanted to

How many people hit so close to something and then put on weight when there is little to no gym time. Honestly that was me 4 months ago! I would get to the point I am now and some how in my warped brain I would think "Oh I got this" and then eat like a pig (and still think I would magically drop the weight!) So to know that I haven't been able to get into the gym and go all out and NOT gain anything makes me feel SO much pride in myself. I still have to go in tomorrow morning for my official weigh in so maybe with the cardio I'm going to be doing at lunch time and the workout tonight that might burn off the 7 ounces......however if not I WILL not look at this as a failure, but look at it as a week of learning to LIVE and not be over taken with the bad way of life that I was living for SO long.

I also think that it is weeks like this when comparison pictures help to keep the fire burning and the motivation going. So below is a picture of me from Nov'12 to April'13...the difference is about 25 pounds gone!

I still have about 63 pounds to go until I am at my goal, but to see the progress only pushes me harder and makes me more determined. In the end it is not about the numbers on the scale and I know that. It is how healthy I feel, how strong my body is and dang it to be back in my goal pants! I'm a work in progress, but I'm LOVING what I'm learning....and LOVING that I can look at myself in the mirror with pride and satisfaction again.

"Learning to love yourself. It is the greatest love of all" Whitney Houston - Dang if she wasn't SO right with that!!

    I can so relate to the eating and expecting the pounds to magically drop off because I was working out or whatever. Sooo relate.

I guess somehow we have to find that balance of diet AND exercise and put it (squish it) in our daily lives. That's where the journey and adventure comes in, it seems. LOL

Off to finish reading for school and try out my new shoes.

You are doing awesome!!!
Oh, and I love ya emoticon
