Feel Good Convo at the Gym

Friday, April 19, 2013

So, as you know I have been feeling pretty down because the scale isn't going where I would like it to. It is going down, but not as fast as I would like. But, today my Body Pump instructor that I see about 2 to 3 times a week told me today that I am looking thinner and better every single week that she sees me and that I am an inspiration to HER. She says that she has lost a dress size recently because every time she is thinking of eating something high in calories or a sweet treat she thinks of ME. Umm, WOW. :) She also welcomed me to the "skinny girls club" and told me to never go back to where I was before because there is nothing there for me now. So, I might not be getting any positive feedback from that nasty old scale, but I getting it from people who are in the fitness field, so I guess in a way, that is a LOT more important!!! :)

    YES!! Awesome! That instructor probably doesn't even know how much that meant to you! To me that is worth to much more than what the scale says. Remember, muscle weighs more than fat-that"s another reason not to rely on it that much!

    YES! There are so many ways to measure health and progress. The scale is definitely not the most important one. Thanks for the reminder.

    what does that crazy old scale know anyhow? It is an unfeeling, inanimate object. You however, are trimming and toning in amazing ways, muscle still weghs more than fat and the feedback you are getting from real people , who have watched your journey , is irrefutable- you are slimming down!!!!. The people who have led the classes that you worked so hard in see YOU as their example of how that hard work pays off- (and a reminder of how far the journey has been) is amazing. Be proud of your accomplishments!!! emoticon
