Changing the focus
Monday, May 16, 2011
Today starts my 19th week with SP. I realize that my focus has changed. In the past, it's always been about the weight. Have to lose the weight. How much weight did I lose that week. How much more weight do I have to lose. How much I want to lose by a certain date.
This time I'm concentrating on getting fit, getting in shape. I know the weight will come off, that a lot has come off already. Don't get me wrong, I still want to see a lower number on the scale. But more than that I want to see a slim body with defined muscles. The scale has gone up a few times in the past 4 months but I never let it faze me. Because it's so NOT about the number on the scale.
When I joined SP I set my weight loss goal. Now I realize that I might not reach that number. Because it's about getting in shape and that's the important goal. I might be good weighing a little bit more than that magic number I picked, or I might need to weigh a little bit less. I'm not sure yet. But I'll know when I get there. Fit and healthy!
