Day 1 - Measurement Time

Friday, March 10, 2017

I'm trying hard not to be ashamed of these measurements, and I'm sure they will be decreasing soon :) This is just the way it is for me right now. I need to learn to accept and love myself at this size if I want to make a lasting change for the better. I will be remeasuring on the first of every month to see my progress.

    Goals written and measurements written are good motivators. I am looking for the measuring tape now. emoticon

    I understand! but, you did it! Now you can measure your progress! The smallest changes can make huge differences.... Good for you for counting the tartar sauce and all! If you want a tip, here it is, if not, just ignore! but, maybe try either sour cream or butter on your potato instead of both. I first switched to sour cream only, then light sour cream then fat free.... Then less and less! I do measure it! I put lemon juice on fish now and skip the tartar altogether! That didn't happen overnight mind you! I first just cut back on the amount! I'm really proud of you!

    Be calm and breath. No one active at sparkpeople is here to judge. We are all here for many different
    reasons. We are an army of sparkers ready to share, pray, love and support each other.

    I know it's hard to put the numbers out there. Reality and acknowledgement are often difficult to own.
    But you have done this. You have taken a huge step.
    I am proud of you!
