No time to sweat the small stuff

Friday, October 25, 2013

Just when I could finally SEE my weight loss, the scale went up 1.4 pounds. It's okay though because I look the same and feel the same as before I got on the scale. Little things like a pound up don't get to me the way they used to, and that's a good thing. Getting passed over by the leader of the group when she was asking the "successful members" to give a talk next week, was a little harder to take, but as with the pound up, this too shall pass, and i'm still as successful whether or not she asks me to sit on her panel. I know how hard I've worked to accomplish this weight loss, and my friends do, and most of all, God does. So I'm very grateful today for all my blessings and the few rain drops that fall along my path will quickly fade away. For today, I have so many blessing to count, that there's no time to sweat the small stuff. emoticon emoticon Thank you Lord.

    It sounds like you've already won the game because you're keeping your eye on the prize, not on the small distractions. You've done/are doing a great job!

    Hi Patty, Like you I used to get upset when I gained a pound or two as usually WI every other week. . .but I've learned like you it doesn't change how I look or feel so if need be I tighten my resolve and make sure I've lost it by my next WI. Even then if it doesn't happen I don't "beat" myself up about it or stress out either. I guess we're aging well like fine wine and know ourselves even better than before we started our WL Journey to better Health and Weight Loss. Good for You for not taking it personally as Your WW Leader could only choose a few so it's just not your turn this time. Continue thinking positive and feeling good about yourself. Have a Wonderful new Week!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
