Just watched The Biggest Loser finale, and wow... Rachel lost 155 pounds, which would be great if it didn't bring her down to 105. When the scale started fluctuating and I saw 95, 97, I started getting worried. She looks too skinny, and there is definitely buzzing around the web about it. Some are blaming the show and the trainers, as to how they let it get to this. I do understand the desire to lose weight and be healthy and happy with who I am. But I never wanted to be that thin. My goal weight is 140, and even the thought of getting to 120 scares me. I don't see anything good coming from going to an extreme. I can't imagine what made her go that far...
I stepped on the scale today and I gained a pound. Awhile ago that would have made me stressed and upset, but I just took it in stride and tried to think what I did differently and what I can do better today to stay on track. So I transferred out a high calorie snack for a healthier one, and I was strict about not earing after 8 pm tonight. I hope it pays off on the scale.
But I am so happy that I am able to shrug it off and keep going. So I gained a pound. I will keep going and soon lose it, and many more. My head is in a good place, and that is what matters.
Despite the snowy slushy weather here in New York, I had a great class tonight, and ended up walking and talking with the professor after class. I am looking forward to a good day tomorrow.
Be safe everyone, and remember that it is not the number on the scale that matters, it is how you feel inside.
