shift of thinking...

So, last week, I was all rainbows and butterflies and happy, right? I was eating well, felt good, had a great weekend.
Got on the scale this am, looking for my 2 lb reward...NOPE! Gained a half a pound....I literally laughed out loud!
Which brings me to this.
I felt better last week.
I ate better last week.
I moved more last week.
Is any of that diminished because I didn't lose any weight according to the scale?
Heck no. It just means my focus needs to be on doing what I need to do to feel better.
That's it. Its not a number or a reward of a number. Its just every day, eating well, being good to my body, my spirit, my whole self. As I do that, that is my reward. The weight loss is a bonus.
I'm not gonna fall into that trap with the scale. I will weigh on Monday because that is my accountability but I will not allow that to control my efforts.
