Change of perception

There used to be a time when I hated when SparkPeople would announce my losses after I gained weight and then at least one person would like it, and I would think, "Why? I'm just losing the weight I gained back." But now, I see the victory in that. Whenever the scale goes up, it's very discouraging. We always want it going down, but when it's that time of the month, I do not escape gaining weight. I'm bloated and feel like I have a tape worm so to find the scale going down afterwards is something to celebrate about now. Inches lost would be even better, but it's all a process. I realize that every step I take to a healthier lifestyle is helping me in some fashion. I just need to be patient and trust the process. I'm going to get there!
These challenges are very insightful because I can see where I'm doing okay and where my work is cut out, but right now I'm still working on goal 1 which is getting my sleep. I'm almost re-established so the next goal will be re-establishing my water kick. Going to start small and build myself back to 8. I know to meet this goal I will have to get diligent of taking my ranitidine so that my tummy isn't upset. So with that, I'm going to go and take it!
