The Little Things

Thursday, November 08, 2012

For the past two months I have really been working towards my goals of losing weight and becoming the healthiest me that I can be!! At times, I have wanted to quit, give up, throw in the towel because the scale doesn't always reflect the hard work that I have been putting in but there is this small voice that says to me "don't forget the small victories"!! Sooooooooooooo, I thought about something that I have battled with for years "SWOLLEN ANKLES"..I know that sounds crazy but since I was 14 I have had to battle with them but today marks 1 week since my ankles haven't swollen and I feel great!! So, it's not all about the number on the scale but the small victories along the way that helps keep you on the right track!!!! I'm down 23.8 pounds and counting but I now pride myself with the small victories

    Oh I almost thought I wrote this blog. We share similar things with the exception of the swollen ankles. I've loss about the same amount of weight, put in the hardwork, and just see the scale bounce back and forth. But the small victories of lose clothes, increasing endurance and speed in exercises let me see I have come this far....

    So hang on to the small victories your body will get the message soon. We're in a war and we will win the battle.

    I agree the small things are important. The scale is a bit deal when you want results, but then I have to remember all the small things that have changed since I started this. I was glad to read this because it reminded me of that all over again. Thank you for the reminder!
