Finally Lost a Pound

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

After a week of working out more than I normally do, tracking my food, ending up at a higher weight than I started, and a two day pity party, my scale finally shows a loss. Woo Hoo!

    Oh that is great news! BTW, thank u so much for posting just now about my blog, "Bless Me, Bless Water." I love your profile pic, too - very sweet :)

    Just before I step on the scale, I take a deep breath and say to myself, "Remember, Lori: Feedback, not Failure," and I repeat it as many times as needed, for that particular weigh-in.

    I've been doing this for about 3 months now, and I've noticed that I don't get depressed or frustrated anymore, when I've gained or that scale isn't moving. I just started tracking my food again, and I love the way the SP tracker helps me see exactly which food choices need changing as well as which ones are working. So, the Feedback, not Failure mantra points me in the positive direction of a solution instead of the negative direction of, "Well, if THAT'S the deal (gain or no loss), I might as well eat what I want!" (resentment, poor me, lol :)

    Keep the faith and have fun with it!

    Blessings Abound in Your Life,
