Time To Realize

Monday, June 09, 2014

So I've come to the conclusion that it is time for me to realize that I might never get to see that number on the scale that I want. That is very frustrating! I need to learn to be okay with the number on the scale, but it is so hard.

I'm trying to look at other things to keep me going. I do weigh less now than I did three years ago right before I got pregnant. And I feel like I am healthier overall now, I eat better and exercise more.

Why is the scale so important? As much as I try I cannot get over the number I see staring back at me each time I weigh myself. I don't think I will ever get down to my goal weight. Heck, I think I weighed that much once when I was like 20. Let me tell you that cleaning hotel rooms all day will help you shed some pounds! Lol.

How do we focus more on the other accomplishments we have made? Maybe I need to start taking my measurements again, I don't know. But I need something to look at and say, "I did that, and it was something I couldn't do before". I need a push, I just can't find the right one.

    True goal weight is tricky.
    I think it is a bit higher than the "personal best" one can reach at the highest motivation and best effort.
    If your body is comfortable at your current weight, you look good and can do the things you want to do, and you are able to maintain it without too much effort, then probably you are at or very close to your goal weight.

    Congrats to your weight loss success so far, enjoy your healthy body!

    If you weigh less that in itself is great. If you need something physical to look at to know you succeed it, you have two things you can view daily, the first is your dresss size or pant size and the second is the mirror. When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see, because that is all that matters.
