Another day

Friday, August 03, 2012

I'm guilty of this.
Only measuring my success on what I can see. Only by numbers on the scale.
I need to start focusing on what I FEEL.
Do I feel better?
Am I getting stronger?
Am I lasting longer?

I don't know how to answer those at this point.
Of course I've only been working out again for 4 days.
I've been eating healthy 75% of the time these past few weeks.
I don't feel much in the way of change. I don't crave bad things as much as I did.
So thats got to be something.

My weight this week has been a roller coaster. I had lost 3 pounds by Wed. Then yesterday I gained 2 and then 1 today.
I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday, because of things like this. I know weight is supposed to fluctuate and whatnot, when i see it do down i get so excited and have a burst of energy and want to work harder. When I see it go up I get sad, and wonder what all this work is for if nothing is changing!
So i decided to measure my waist thing morning instead. And.....i may have lost 2 inches.....
I have to make sure and get a better measuring tape, and double check tomorrow morning.

So as much as I am struggling with myself. That makes me happy!

I honestly wouldn't care if I weighed as much as I do now, if I could just fit back into my size 9's.

    yup, thats exactly why you have to be careful with daily weighings.

    and also remember, you didn't gain in one night, so it will take more than that to lose it :o)
