well, week 3.... behind me!
i got rid of a pound( i say, "rid of" since i DON'T plan on EVER finding it again!), and a half inch off my biceps and thighs( i guess this is due to "leaning out" my muscles?).
well, week one, i lost THREE pounds and week TWO i lost THREE pounds, so i am thinking that my week three is like most people's week two, since that is usually the week people lose very little or not at all?
now, let's get something straight, was i TOTALLY disappointed when i saw that it was only ONE pound? heck, yes!
was i even more frustrated and angry when i saw that i didn't lose any INCHES in my waist, nor hips or anything? double heck yes!
BUT, then i held a pound of butter, hey, this really IS something!
and a half an inch off my bicep and thigh? that does mean something! it means...
i am drinking more water
i am eating more fruit and veggies
i am not eating as much (actually very little) fast food
i am walking more
i am back to karate (CONSISTENTLY )
i am doing my work out DVDs and getting NEW ones
i am taking the stairs whenever i can
i am wanting to hang out with my friends (being a little more social)
i am wanting to spend quality time with my kids and hubby
i am wearing more flattering clothes (not my big sweats all the time)
i want to buy MAKE-UP! i hardly EVER want to wear make-up!
i try to have more quiet, reflective, prayer time.
AND i have reached my first month's weight goal with a week yet to go!
now i know that i am gonna have more UP and DOWN days, but it is a small victory that even though the scale hasn't moved as much as i have wanted, OTHER things have changed. i am becoming the person i have always wanted to be....
i thank the Lord, and my spark friends for helping me see the positive, i couldn't do it otherwise!
so one pound? yes. just a couple of inches? yes. but a lot of other changes that will make the scale move down and get more inches off, and make me a better person to my family and friends and others, yup, it is worth it!
