I am More Than a Number

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

After losing 100 lbs., I've maintained for over two years. That's the "glass is
half full" outlook. The negative side is that I've been in a plateau for over two years. But the first one is more empowering, so I'm going with that.

See I have 25 more lbs. to goal weight, and I wanted to reach that by my 40th birthday, which is at the end of August...

And since over indulging say the holidays I've gained 5 lbs. I just can't seem to lose.

So to motivate myself, I wanted to visually see just how much 100 lbs. looks like.

I know I've come a long way, just need to commit to making healthy choices and with God on my side I can do this!!

    I just wanted to check in & see how you were doing. So proud of you for maintaining these last 2 years. It takes a lot of effort to swim against the current - even if you don't feel like you are moving forward fast. For me, I've been letting go of one healthy habit at a time over these past 2 years... have re-gained about 60 lbs. So, I'm completely impressed by you today & as, usual, you are a huge motivation for me. :O)

    Totally agree. BUT, at some point you just may have to make your peace with the number you can maintain, at which you can still enjoy your life. Because the number? It's superficial, and the only one who sees it is YOU. Everyone else sees your beautiful spirit and presence!

    You have come so far and are such an inspiration.
    Don't lose faith-you will make your goal, you are not defined by the number or the date.

    A very wise spark friend, KANSASROSE67, told me that it helped her to measure what she could control. For example I cannot control (nor be defined by) the number on the scale, but I can count the number of minutes I exercise each week, and roughly count the number of calories I eat. Following her advice helped me in a period of plateau (which eventually became a period of gain, but that's an entirely different story and not at all applicable to your wonderful self!)

    I am on the same type of plateau, but am finding if I work more on the mental blocks and issues the scale is moving again. I have faith you will do this Kathy! You are so much more then a number!
