Weigh in and some words:)

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Nobody cares, but it's kind of a tradition now for me to post Sunday weigh in results:
Current weight: 190.7 kg aka 420.4 lbs
Week weight loss: 3.2 kg aka 7 lbs

To everybody who takes interest in me - thank you, appreciate it very much.
But don't look at those numbers as goals or even accomplishments, they are just numbers.
If you're goal is to see low number on scale - tilt your scales(left higher then right) and you'll get low number - goal achieved! The real goal is to become healthy and stay healthy for the rest of your life, sure that alone won't bring you happiness, but it will make happiness possible.
Please don't be those people who look at before and after pictures asking "how did you do that?" and not even caring for the answer or discarding it as not been viable to them.
I hope that you are not this way, and more interested in principals, behind these numbers, only that way you can achieve your true goal, not losing weight, but been healthy.

Thanks for reading, if you have any questions or need guidance or real support, I'm here always ready to listen and to share knowledge...

    "...don't look at those numbers as goals or even accomplishments, they are just numbers."

Very true! We get hung up on the number on the scale, but it is not the be all to end all. Plateaus happen, but the question we all need to ask ourselves is "How's the eating? How's the exercise?" If it fits within the parameters of what is healthy, then keep at it. As you said, overall health is what matters.

Great post!

    You're kidding me about tilting the scale to see lower numbers...goodness we woul'd only be fooling ourselves doing that. But well done on the loss...its a nice number all the same. Your pictures are totally inspiring. I have lost 20kgs and working on the next 10 from now to the end of the year. Your pictures have given me a boost. on top of my own boost. lol

    You are so correct on this Andrey.. I have to agree 100%. In the end... it is being healthy and keeping up with all the healthy habits we learn. However.. I must say for myself and others.... you DO inspire us. Not only because of pictures we see... or numbers you type. You inspire us because you keep yourself going. You have encouraging words and advice to share. I have seen many instances of someone thanking you for one supportive word or some advice. You have a positive attitude.. and that goes a long way with me. So no... it is not just pictures and typed numbers. It is what is inside of you.. that you share. You are appreciated. Jo

    You're doing amazing and being healthy is definitely the most important goal I think. You're progress are inspiring because you keep pushing towards your health, like with your walking that you do and how you choose to eat.
Sometimes what works for one may not work for another because we are all different in the way we approach our journey. But you have a very good base and great ideas and advices and a lot of the stuff you suggested to me is working good so far and it gave me other and nice meal ideas :-) So thanks :-)
Have a nice day.
