Same Shirt, Different Sizes
Wednesday, July 03, 2013
So, I've been just ever so very slightly discouraged because I haven't lost more weight. I've been trying to stay on track with SS & not doing too bad, but the numbers haven't budged. And that's fine. I know I'm not going to lose weight every week, no matter how hard I stick to my plan... I didn't put this weight on overnight and it's not coming off that way either.
But then, I got dressed today. And I pulled a shirt out of the dryer that I have 2 of, but in different sizes, a 1X & a 2X. I'm not exactly sure why I have 2 of them...I don't wear the smaller shirt. It's more form fitting, I feel too self-conciousi in it & I'm just not as comfortable.
But the shirt that I pulled out was the smaller one! Which means I inadvertly wore it last week & didn't even realize it! And that means I don't need that other, larger shirt anymore!!
Just another reminder that we can't just look at the scale to judge our progress on this journey. In addition to weighing ourselves, we also need to regularly ask:
Am I sleeping better at night?
Do I have more energy?
Do I feel better physically?
Is my attitude more positive?
Am I able to do things I wasn't before?
And of course, do my clothes fit better?
