I remind myself daily that just because the scale hasn't changed, it doesn't mean I am not making progress. I keep mental and written notes of how I feel each day, how my clothes fit, etc. as reminders that every little bit counts. Sometimes, accomplishment is not tangible but is based on the feeling of self worth you get when you make a commitment to better health and wellness....and stick to it!
I believe far too much emphasis is placed on weight and size as opposed to health. Many people do "controversial" things to have an appearance that is acceptable to society, while unhealthy physically and emotionally. I want to do it the right way! Thanks to Sparkpeople...I AM!
