It's Just a Number
Saturday, September 24, 2011
That is something I have FINALLY come to terms with. Every week I do the dreaded weigh in. Holding my breath as those numbers flash back at me calculating.....then the final. Then there's the expelling of breath and the let down. It's never the number I want staring back at me.
These past two weeks I have done all I can. One week, I worked out seven days straight. Yes I did say SEVEN! Then last week I was only able to work out three days. Between the two weeks I lost almost three pounds. Any other week I would have been "ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I SWEAT LATELY AND I ONLY LOST THAT MUCH!!!!" This past week I weighed in and thought to myself "well, at least it's something and I know in my heart I did everything I could do this past week"
I am paying more attention to the little things. Walking up my stairs I don't get winded. When I bend over to tie my shoes theres not as much fat being pinched. Sounds weird typing it, don't know how else to describe it but those are the things I notice. So maybe my scale isn't telling me what I want it to but my body it showing me I am headed down the right track.
