today i spent lakeside with friends, catching up and enjoying eachothers company. it was a good time. i ate within my parameters, enjoyed fresh brewed iced tea and really felt like it was the perfect topper to an interesting week. tomorrow i weigh myself. it was really challenging to not get on the scale all week. i thought it was important for me to just go through the week, looking at patterns, making adjustments seeing what fit and what didn't fit and NOT have success be defined by numbers on a scale. i was going to skip blogging tonight and wash up and head to bed. as i was going through my evening routines, i saw the scale waiting for me. i wanted the immediate gratification of seeing what story the scale would tell. but i made a promise to myself to not be driven by the story on the scale. this is a story of mindful living, of making lifestyle changes while following through with consistency. i didn't get on that scale. I decided to follow through with my original monday weigh-in plan. Instead, of caving to immediate gratification, i came out here and blogged. and now i will go to bed.
