This week, I didn't sneak a peek
Sunday, September 27, 2009
I woke up today and almost forgot it was time for my weekly weigh-in. This is a huge turnaround compared to previous weeks where I kept sneaking on the scale to see if it was really "working." Sometimes I was peeking every day, which is not a great idea, especially mid-day when I was well into my 8 glasses of water. While I was certainly happy to hit my first milestone today, to me, the real accomplishment was that I didn't think about jumping on the scale all week.
Why this is an accomplishment might not be readily apparent. Clearly, it was subtle for me as well, since I didn't even think to include it in my list of goals. What I realized, as I walked away from the scale, is that I felt SO GOOD this week, so energetic, healthier than I have in a while, that what the scale had to offer was irrelevant. What I realized this morning was that it doesn't matter what the numbers say, it matters how I feel...and today, I feel strong and healthy!
