New Motivation

Sunday, February 17, 2013

So I blogged yesterday about how I had recently taken off 17 pounds but then fell off the wagon and eats have been completely out of control, and how as a result I was afraid to face the scale and see what kind of damage I had done.

Well this morning as I was getting out of bed my eyes fell on the scale in the corner and I decided to be brave and face the music.

Yes, I have regained some of what I lost, but I'm still down 8.8 pounds from my start weight so I hadn't completely derailed all my hard work and seeing that has renewed my motivation to get back on track and heading in the right direction again!

It just goes to show that what we fear, in this case the number on the scale, is rarely as bad as what we have imagined it will be, and that facing what we need to face and taking some form of inspired action from that is far better than sitting and commiserating.

So that's my wee-bit-o-wisdom for the day, LOL! Hope you all are on track or conquering your fears so you can get back to good again!

Enjoy a beautiful and gratitude-filled Sunday! :D

    Thank you so much for yours words of wisdom! It's just what I needed to hear, as I'm presently doing the EXACT same thing. You've motivated me to get back on the scale tomorrow and face the music.

    You have a great attitude and focusing on what you've accomplished will get you to your goals!

    8 pounds is a good start. At least you have that. And your getting your groove back, that's the most important thing. emoticon
