Focusing on the Positive

Sunday, March 03, 2013

After last week's big loss, I was expecting to have a small loss, no loss or even a gain this week even though I stayed within my calorie range every day and worked out as planned. I was right, I went up by 0.4 pounds which is minor, I know. I had a great week and feel good about how I'm doing. I'm eating well and able to do more and more with my workouts. My scale's fat percentage figure shows me losing a little body fat this week as well. As more time goes by and I have more data, I'm sure I'll get even better at predicting the cycle my body goes through. I think that will help me keep my head in the game even if the scale does not cooperate EVERY week. :-)

So, I'm still motivated and feel good about the changes I've made. Plus, what's the alternative? If I have a disappointing week here and there, does it make sense to just give up? Of course not!! I am determined to stay with this and to keep moving forward.

    You are so smart to keep your perspective on the scale and not to take 0.4 too seriously. It sounds SO definite, doesn't it? NOT. One morning I got up really early--5 am and weighed in. It was really too early to get up so I went back to bed for 2 hours. At 7 I weighed a pound less! Taught me a lesson.

    Have a wonderful day. Wise blog!!
