OK, so the scale showed a 4 pound loss two days ago, but today it shows that 2 of those pounds are still hovering nearby, and apparently landing on me and trying to hide themselves in all the other pounds, hoping to go unnoticed. I'm sure they are planning to settle in and get comfortable, and then call back the other lost pounds until they have all just made themselves a permanent home. HA! Not this time, flabby fatty pounds! I'm in the driver's seat and I'm driving you away.
Yeah, the pounds might be coming off very S - L - O - W - L - Y, but I can finally actually SEE that it's not the numbers on the scale that matter. Despite still being unable to squeeze comfortably into the dress I was working on getting into for an upcoming family wedding, I tried on a couple of pretty tops that were hanging in my closet, waiting for me to lose enough weight to wear them with confidence. Not only do they now fit and look lovely on me, but one of them actually shows that I have a waistline! It's not a tailored blouse, but it just drapes nicely and accentuates my curves in a positive way for a change. What I'm saying is, I actually look nice in it! It's been over a year since I thought I looked nice in anything, so this is the epitome of inspiration!
I have had more set-backs than I probably should have, but I am not going to let those set-backs defeat or define me. I'm just going to use them as learning opportunities, or reasons to push harder, or whatever it takes for me to stay on top of the game. I'll keep writing in my journal (although dreadfully behind, and it's an important tool for me) and wait for The Spark Solution full book to become available in my cloud reader.
Thank you again to all my beautiful Spark Friends for nudging me along when I need a shove.
