Progress is More Than What the Scale Tells You
Saturday, July 06, 2013
Sometimes, I become very frustrated by what my friend, the scale, tells me. I've upped my activity level by quite a bit, I've cleaned up my diet and paid more attention to portion size. I've eliminated all soda pop from my home and cut out all snacking after 8 PM, and STILL my "friend" disappoints me with little number change......
And then ~ getting ready to meet my daughter for some shopping, I realize the laundry isn't quite dry! The capris I planned to wear are in that load! OH, NO!!! What will I wear?!? Digging deep in my closet, I find a pair that I haven't been able to wear for quite some time. Shaking my head in despair, I grab them, say a little prayer, and figure I might as well give them a try...... and they FIT! They are 2 sizes smaller than what I was wearing in April! And with that encouragement, I am now motivated to keep on keepin' on, knowing that sometimes my friend, the scale, does not always tell the whole story!
