Preparing to NOT be disappointed

Saturday, February 09, 2013

I did pretty well this week with my eating. I did go over my calorie range three times but not by much. I still had a calorie deficit every day and made very healthy overall choices, even on the days when I went above my calorie range a bit. I've also done well with working out and am feeling really good! Because I wasn't as perfect this week as I have been the last 3 weeks, I'm preparing myself for not having any loss when I weigh in tomorrow morning. Tonight I feel like I have it all in perspective... weight loss is not perfectly linear like a math equation, the way I'm feeling is great and a sign that I am definitely doing the right things, I'm able to do more strenuous exercises than I could before, etc. I just want to have it down in writing so I can remind myself tomorrow. I know I am more committed to getting healthy than I have ever been before and don't think I will get discouraged. I know I could choose not to weigh in but I like having a weekly checkpoint. It's also now the end of my 4th week so I'll be doing body measurements as well.

So, I'm saying right here and now that I feel very good about the changes I am making and will continue on this path not matter what the scale says tomorrow.

    I have a love/hate relationship with my scale. I'm always taking a deep breath and not looking down until I've let it out. I've found that, as so many people have told me, the scale is merely one tool. You know you've been doing well so regardless of the scale, I say congratulations! Then again, you may get on the scale tomorrow and be surprised that you lost more than what you may even be expecting. I certainly hope so! Your mindset is positive so continue taking one step in front of the other, doing well, and the scale will eventually show what you're wanting it to! I'll be looking tomorrow for your status update or blog post to let us know! emoticon
