I just realized that I am so fixated on the number on the scale and I shouldn't be. This is what I believe has been holding me back. Every morning I get on the scale, if it goes just a bit I am upset, if it goes down I am happy. I just need to throw that scale away.

I think that I need to just try to make healthy choice when eating, get some cardio in at least 5 times a week, lift weights at least 3 times a week. I so be happy that I have been able to stay in the 160s. The weight will come off. I really need to practice and believe what I have been preaching to everyone.

I know that I am not at my goal weight but I am getting closer. I should be happy with what I have accomplished in the last few years.

I have stayed out of the 180s, 190s,200s this past year.
I have ran multiple 5ks - 30+.
I have ran two half marathons.
I have done two mud runs.
I can do regular push ups.

I just don't understand why I am so fixated with the stupid number on the scale.

I am healthier and fitter than what I used to be.

    I get caught up in that number too... it can make or break my day which means it holds way to much power. I've challenged myself to only weigh once a week. It helps.
    Sounds like you are doing great. You'll reach your goals if you keep doing all the wonderful things you are already doing :)

    It's so hard to not get attached to the scale. We all have some sort of # in mind that we're aiming for and it' hard to let that go! Thanks for the reminder because at the end of the day, how healthy we are is what really matters!
