Progress, Not Perfection!

This Sparked Me!

I have set goals.... and well, I didn't lose as much as I thought I would. but wait,... my stomach doesn't seem as big, my legs seem to be thinner/more toned... the zipper seems to be going up more easily (especially when they are right out of the dryer!). So if I didn't lose 5lbs this week as I had hoped, there are some changes worth noting!
Bottom line is, if your goal isn't met, look for the little changes... those that give you the glimmer of hope.

    What a great reminder! I was getting frustrated with the weight not coming off - but as you noted, look for the positive. Even though I still weigh the same, I have cut 2 inches off my waist, 1 inch off my hips and gained 1.5 inches in my arms...a huge plus since I have been working out harder. I just ned to adjust my weight training for less bulk and more weight loss. Thanks for the motivational reminder!!
