Felt like I needed a mid-week boost so I jumped on the scale...and three more pounds bite the dust! Beginning to feel my clothes loosen a bit, too.
Yes, I know I won't always have that sort of pay-off, but here's a pay-off I'm planning to hold onto: using the scale as another friend in my journey!
Alongside with hunger, self-support (as opposed to self-bashing) & numbers my scale sidles up to join the powerhouse pack!
I used to play lots of games with the scale and weigh-ins...such as after a weekly weigh-in (yes, a sneaky under-handed method to sticking with only weekly weigh-ins!) I would relax my vigilance and look at the first few days of the week as my "coasting" days where I could "afford" to relax on my food choices. Now THAT'S how to keep the scale the ENEMY!
I've been having some nervous thoughts about shifting my approach as the weight slows down but with the wisdom, knowledge and support of the At Goal & Maintenance team I know I'll come up with something that works a whole lot better than what I've done before.
Now: off to a BUSY Saturday of ST, Spinning and moving a ton of pellets for our stove!
Keep the SPARK!
