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! emoticon emoticon

    Isn't that just the best feeling in the world.....
    I started weighing myself every day just to take some of my power back.
    Doing the happy dance for you.
    Have a great day!
