Patiently Doing Right

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Well, last weigh in I had a small gain. I was so bummed out. My partner, who is also actively Sparking, cheered me up. I also got thinking: one pound gained totally changed the way I felt about myself in that moment. Yet, I knew that if it had been a one pound loss I would have felt completely different. Why was that difference so powerful? I realized I was letting myself get too worked up over something that was ultimately a very small thing in the long run and I needed to look at that.

Sobering, to say the least.

This week I am continuing to do the same things I have been. I am sure that if I do that long enough I WILL show a loss. I know that in the end consistency WILL pay off. I just have to keep my head in a good space and make use of all the support I have.

I wish everyone a great Tuesday!

    Great job keeping a clear head on your shoulders! It can be so tempting to give in to frustration, so kudos to you for staying positive.

    Yes; consistency CAN pay off. And, I wouldn't worry at all about a one-time weight gain.

    But, doing the same things, week after week, can trigger a plateau. Read some ideas about "Changing it Up" here.
