What changes have you made???

Thursday, April 11, 2013

We all get caught up in the number on the scale, how our clothes fit etc. Often we get down when we get stagnant. We haven't seen the scale move in a few days, weeks, months. We haven't had to buy a new wardrobe lately. I have hit many a plateau along the way and now that I am hitting a certain point my body is slowing the weight loss and occassionally bucking it all together. I was getting down and a bit unmotivated but then I got thinking. 4 years ago I would have gotten down given up and maybe drown my sorrows in a pizza. That my friends is just plain stupid. Maybe the losing stalls but the habits are still there. I drink my water, I eat my veggies, and I move more. So think about this if you are getting down if you have truly made changes you should be HAPPY with that HAPPY you eat better, HAPPY you cut back/out soda, HAPPY you take the stairs instead of the elevator. Keep doing these things all day every day and you will see the changes come again.
I had this thought after having 4 days where I was stressed, tired, and unmotivated. I felt like here I am working at this for 4 years and I'm still not at my goal weight. Then I realized I am also a completely different person than that other girl. I am someone who enjoys eating healthy, likes working out, and wants to be healthy for the rest of my life. I am going to have to do this the rest of my life but not because I have to, because I want to. For me it is not longer enough just to exist I have to LIVE!!

    Looking back will often motivate you when the scales say nope I'm not moving. You can sometimes use the tape but my tape just laughs at me.

    You are right that you can say we I am not the same person I was and that will help. With luck the scales will move next week.

    Good luck and have a good weekend.

    My best change (and my biggest one) is my DESIRE to walk . . . it's no longer a chore that I have to do, to build up steps. Now I get home and I want to go out and get moving. I love it!
