Blog #3 - LOST WEIGHT!?!?

Monday, July 01, 2013

okay so today i stepped on the scale with crossed fingers "just stay the same, just stay the same...." I have been really proud of my progress thus far on spark people (I'm exercising more, blogging, eating healthier etc) but I haven't kept my calories within my spark people range. I always find myself going over by quite a bit. Yes, it's not the greatest, but I mean I never really let it get to me because I could see myself improving other aspects of my health. But, weight.... ah weight. Weight has so much effect on me. I knew that a gain would crush me and I didn't want a slight bump in the scale to discourage me. I wanted to avoid the scale completely today, but I know myself : I run away from the scale when I'm scared of my weight, and once I start running I keep running and my weight explodes to a new horrifying number. So in order to avoid that, I put myself on the scale and forced myself to look down at the number. I lost 3.6 pounds!!! HUH?!?
I stepped back on three times and the same number popped up. I was DOWN!!!! whoa ! cool! awesome! amazing! And with the widest smile on my face I logged into spark people to share my great news! I'm no where near my goal, but it is lower than it has been for at least a week and I'm so proud of myself right now! I LOVE SPARK PEOPLE! emoticon

Best Always,

    So happy for you. (-: The scale.. oh the scale, we have had such a poor relationship in the past. I could be feeling like a rawk-star knowing I was nailing my nutrition and workouts... but then it would pop out a number which I didnt want to see and within an instant I went from feeling awesome, to an awesome failure.
    Just remember - use it as a guide, but not the end-all be-all to all of the effort, time and sweat youre putting in. Dont let that number - 'good' or 'bad' dictate how YOU feel about what YOUR accomplishing. (-:
    PROPS!!! Proud of you!!! (-:
