The Little Things
Wednesday, June 05, 2013
I have been so consumed be the numbers on the scale that I have missed the little improvements that are happening in my life. I have focused so much on losing weight that I have missed the other areas of my life where this lifestyle change has affected me. I didn't even notice until last night when I was talking with my husband and he told me how proud he was of me for sticking with this even tough I haven't seen the results I wanted on the scale. He also mentioned how proud he was that I haven't had any mac & cheese (which I love deeply!!) and haven't even complained about. That got me thinking.... I didn't even realize when I was making it last night for them that I missed the mac & cheese and quieting isn't even an option so why complain?!?!
So I started thinking about other little things.....
The stairs in my office don't kill me anymore!
I am wearing a shirt that I haven't been able to wear for a year!
I get excited about exercise now!
I crave water!
I am in a better mood when I get home from work!
I am ready for bed earlier and I wake up easier!
I don't think about food all the time anymore!
My sister is getting healthy with me!
Those are just some of the improvements I have noticed and in only a month!!! No matter what the scale says, I have noticed a positive change and there is NO going back!
