okay so today i stepped on the scale with crossed fingers "just stay the same, just stay the same...." I have been really proud of my progress thus far on spark people (I'm exercising more, blogging, eating healthier etc) but I haven't kept my calories within my spark people range. I always find myself going over by quite a bit. Yes, it's not the greatest, but I mean I never really let it get to me because I could see myself improving other aspects of my health. But, weight.... ah weight. Weight has so much effect on me. I knew that a gain would crush me and I didn't want a slight bump in the scale to discourage me. I wanted to avoid the scale completely today, but I know myself : I run away from the scale when I'm scared of my weight, and once I start running I keep running and my weight explodes to a new horrifying number. So in order to avoid that, I put myself on the scale and forced myself to look down at the number. I lost 3.6 pounds!!! HUH?!?
I stepped back on three times and the same number popped up. I was DOWN!!!! whoa ! cool! awesome! amazing! And with the widest smile on my face I logged into spark people to share my great news! I'm no where near my goal, but it is lower than it has been for at least a week and I'm so proud of myself right now! I LOVE SPARK PEOPLE!
