Disappointed in the scale but NOT in me!

Monday, June 09, 2014

Well I'm officially at my highest weight in 2 years. Scale my not tell the whole story but it doesn't lie either. So what's the deal?

I love, Love, LOVE to exercise. That's great. Problem- I love dogs, good food, "fun" food (I don't like the term bad food), and the richer the better. I had my eating under control for a little over a year. Then things started sneaking back. Lately. I've just been buying (and eating)anything I want.

Well, no more. I bought no fun foods. No cookie, no chips, no cheesecake. No wine! I have looked back at my trackers to when I was eating healthy and I'm going start modeling after those days. I'm sick of sucking in the gut or having to stand certain ways in pictures to look presentable.

But I am still very proud of myself. I have maintain a 50 pound weight loss for 2 years. I can run 3 miles when doctors told me I should be able to walk one (granted I'm no speedy Gonzales, but I beat the turtles). And I actually miss my elliptical. These are great victories in my life that a number on the scale can't touch.

So day one today- let's rock it.

    CHEERS to the victories!!! They mean so much more than the number on the scale!!

emoticon You have so much of what it takes already fully integrated.... get your food tracker back to how you want it and emoticon you will be totally on track again.

Maintaining your loss is no small deal. I'm glad you are celebrating all that you have accomplished!!

    I think you are totally REMARKABLE my dear friend! The things you do for your loved ones and your doggie children are amazing.

All of the runs you participate in are AMAZING! The friendship and encouragement you give to your fellow sparkers is AMAZING!

I always say it's just as easy to fill up on healthy than it is to fill up on junk. Our bodies deserve the best we can possibly give them and to honor ourselves by doing so is AMAZING!

Hugs To you and keep on keepin' on! emoticon

    You really have come a long ways! It's so easy to let little things sneak into your eating and then before you know it you have let too many little things sneak back into your eating. The scale ins't necessarily a liar but it doesn't tell the whole truth either. Good for you for not buying the things you know you shouldn't be eating or drinking. emoticon on that and emoticon for keeping 50 pounds off! emoticon emoticon

    I have been where you are with respect to doing the "right" things while going right of my goal weight. Twas a time I looked at numbers on minutes that were recorded by FitBit walking around, making the bed/walking out to the kitchen from my office to look in the refrigerator, looking up answers to trivia questions in order to get a higher score, and all time worst for me...filling the nutrition tracker to get SparkPoints.

My Goal Board says, "I will be honest with myself." "I am responsible for my own happiness."

You have much for which to be proud. You do things I have not been able to do. You have been an inspiration to me and many other people who you have helped cross the line to victory. I am very proud of you.
