Taking a break

Monday, August 13, 2007

Ok, so I'm not really. I'm still going to be on here, on the message boards, talking to friends and listing my food/fitness. How is that really a break then?

Well, I'm basically going to be taking a break from losing weight. In other words, I'm not going to be TRYING. I'm going to eat things that are good for me and get some exercise in every day!

I'm boycotting the scale. I get too wrapped up in what it says, and half the time I think it's messing with me. Either it gives me way too low of an assessment, or it says I've gained 3 pounds overnight for no reason. So, I might still weigh myself randomly, but we'll see.

So for now, I'm just enjoying myself and will remain happy!

    I probably need to do the same thing. I have to keep reminding myself I am working on a lifestyle change, not a diet. Keep sparkin', Girl- you will get there!

    Good for you. I think we start to get to lost in the number which can really be discouraging. The whole idea of this is to change your lifestyle. So really just follow all the tools you have learned here on spark and avoid the scale- I think you will be surprised to see that in a weeks time it will go down.

    Sounds like you have to do the same thing I do from time to time.. take a mental break from "trying" so hard!
You look great! Best of luck to you!

    That's a very wise decision...this is a change in lifestyle and it's way to easy to spend too much energy stressing over an overnight weight gain. When I was pregnant with one of my kids, I gained 10 pounds was all water retention and went away as quickly as it came on. Good decision.
