spark coach assignment. focus on the next small goal

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I had trouble thinking of the next small goal. Maybe it will be my dr appt next week... having lost more than my scale is saying. My scale is hooped I think. when I step on it is goes right back to the last weight to the tenth of a pound. So I step off, back on... it goes up 2 pounds... I change the number of the setting and it reads 1-2 pounds less. I don't trust it, am going with the non scale victory feelings, am I feeling stronger, are my clothes fitting looser, am I breathing better etc. Until I go to the dr next week. I will weigh there. Even with my scale being untrustworthy I am off the obese scale at home, in the morning with no cloths. My next small victory will to be off the obese scale mid day with cloths on the scale at the dr's. office. Yes since this is a lifestyle change I am happy to weigh only once a month and not fixate on the scale. However I am excited to find out...
What type of things do you consider small victories along your jouney?

    Great job on your weight loss! I agree, weighing myself on the scale is once a month if even that. Small victories for me are: tracking my food every day, exercising at least 5 days a week, eating clean and patting myself on my back instead of beating myself up.

    Being able to move around easier was a victory for me.
Really don't fixate on these scales, I always feel better when my clothes are loose, as a matter of fact I use that more than my scale. If my jeans get tight I know I am going in the wrong direction. emoticon

    Getting my daily exercise in is a small victory.

Eating on plan for each meal and snacks.

Losing any weight and keeping it off.

Feeling good.

Sleeping good

Being stress free

Finding time to do extra things around the house.
