Simple Diet Journal #34 -- Mixed Messages

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Been here before -- the scale reports no loss but the mirror (and my jeans) show otherwise. No bother -- I have learned -- I have grown -- and I am continuing to stay with the plan, stay on the plan, and enjoy lots and lots of green vegetables (don't know what it is -- but I am so into Kale and spinach and arugula these days -- found a kale I like and that has made a huge difference).

Eventually, the scale will reveal what I feel and see to be true :-)

Another mixed message -- watched Biggest Loser this week with one of my kids and as Jillian was having a total yelling, slapping-the-wall moment with Pam -- my son said, "How ironic!". "What?" I asked. "Look at her sweatpants -- they say "PEACE" on them!"

If you didn't see the episode -- (spoiler alert) -- Jillian calms down and regathers and moves forward -- a good message for all of us, I guess. 'cause even when I don't have pants with meaningful words on them -- in my heart, I'd like that to be true of me and I know there'll be times when I'm probably giving out an ironic, mixed message, too. Here's to peace -- inside and out . . .

Smiles for you today!

Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What . . .

    That squarish box with the telling numbers ain't got nothing on you! Good for you looking at other wayys to measure your progress. Slow & steady wins the race:)

    I had one of those days yesterday when the scale was mean but my pants (and people) said otherwise. Bittersweet. Also saw the Biggest Loser episode. Jillian was out there. LOL

    I think that if I am healthy, and look good in my clothes, I will never worry about weight , unless I become a jockey. I applaud your workouts and your jeans fitting better emoticon
