That Minute Hits You

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I had a vision of myself getting on the scale, this weekend, and either not seeing movement or seeing movement in the other direction. I can't say I'm doing much in terms of strength training, so I wouldn't be able to say it'd be muscle gain...

the point is, I saw myself getting discouraged. It's not a visual I want to have, it just happened. I don't really know how I'll react if that happens, so I guess I'm trying to brace myself. The rest of the week is going well, so maybe I could just go with that.

I thought about not weighing myself, this coming weekend. I thought about it! But I'm not going to scare myself or let myself be discouraged. This is a very early point in very early stages. It's so easy to give up at this point with the smallest setbacks- even ones that HAVEN'T EVEN HAPPENED! If it happens as I'm foreseeing, I can examine where I need a boost. If it doesn't, I can breathe a little easier and make improvements as I go- maybe treat myself with a movie or something.

Whatever happens, I think I'm prepared for it. I think this is helping me prepare. It might not be as bad as I think, but I know how to handle it if it is! Thank you.

    Don't give up! Don't ever let a silly arbitrary thing like a number determine how you feel about yourself or what you're doing for yourself and your health!

    The numbers on the scale do tend to impact how we feel; however, we cannot control them. What we can control is how we eat and whether or not we exercise. Then we can pat ourselves on the back for making good choices and just hope the scale cooperates. Good luck =)
