I'm going to think positive. I weighed myself this morning and it showed a pound and half gain. I know, I didn't cheat myself so, what gives? I named this Blog entry, Positive because when the scale moves up or doesn't move at all, I usually beat up on myself and become unmotivated. So, here is a list of things, I can be positive about:
1. I drank my water on yesterday.
2. I walked for 1 hour on yesterday.
3. I ate healthy yesterday ( I even ate vegetables, not my favorite).
4. I prepared healthy food for yesterday and today.
5. I got a 100 points on Spark (that's my own personal goal).
I am positive, I did the right thing no matter what the scale read. The scale is not the boss of me. I will move forward and continue to do the right things regardless of the number on the scale.

    There are lots of ways to determine whether the lifestyle change is working. How you feel and how your clothes fit are two.

    There are so many variables day to day, hormones, fluid retention, etc. Also, to lose a pound, it involves 3500 calories. So that means you must be decreasing your intake and burning more than you are taking in. But even sometimes when you exercise, your body will retain fluid. You really cannot get hung up on the scale and expect to see changes day to day. You have to look at this over time and look for changes in your cloths and you will see changes in the scale, but it just may not seem to happen as quickly as you would like. Hang in there and it will happen!
