I Don't Care

Monday, February 18, 2013

A few days ago I was feeling a little down with my progress on the scale and I posted a blog about it. We all know the scale can be fickle. Today I realized that while I may have brief episodes of discomfort with seeing a number other than what I want, overall I don't care.
I don't care that the scale isn't moving as fast as I'd like for it to. I don't care that I've done "diets" in the past that had faster results. I don't care that it's definitely going to take longer to reach my goal weight than I originally planned.
What I do care about is that I am honestly enjoying this journey. What I do care about is that overall I am happy. What I do care about is that I'm not depriving myself of ANY of the foods I love. What I do care about is that I AM making progress and still living a "real" and "normal" life. What I do care about is that I am healthier than I was when I started Sparking. What I do care about is that I am more fit and stronger than when I started sparking. What I do care about is that I've gone from a size 14 to a size 10 in three months. What I do care about is that every single day when I wake up, I decide to do a number of things that will put me closer to my health and fitness goals.
And what I must remind myself of is that out of all of it, even though I have days when I want the number on the scale to be smaller, the number is just not that serious. I'm experiencing way more positives than negatives and I should not be stressed about that F-ing number!
I have a cadre of wonderful and supportive Spark friends who I'd like to thank for reminding me of what's important and always showing support and encouragement. We are in this together and emoticon.
