Slow progress is still progress!
Sunday, June 02, 2013
I have lost 1.5 lbs. in the past two weeks, which I know in my head is not too bad, but emotionally I feel a little disappointed. I know it is progress, and that is all that really counts, but I want to weigh less than 200 lbs. as of yesterday!!!
My unrealistic expectations have tripped me up more than once, so I really need to work on this issue. I want to lose like 10 lbs. every week, LOL!!!! Wouldn't that be great?
My non scale victories are that my pants are definitely looser (I can actually pull them down without unbuttoning them! About two months ago, they were uncomfortably tight) I lost another half inch off my waist this month (Woo Hoo!) and I can walk longer now than I could at the beginning of the month. With that said, I know I have made progress. Like I said before, it was an emotional reaction at the number on the scale.
And that is all it is, a number on the scale.
My real progress is that I have been great at the healthy behaviors and feeling like I am worth the effort to change.
