I have come to the conclusion there are two times not to look down.
One is if you are afraid of heights!...::: Don't Look down! ..
The Second is:
If you know you are doing everything you know to do but the scales refuse to budge ! Don't Look Down!
Instead of facing morning discouragement after all your hard work, do what Sparks advises and STOP making them your fitness guru! ." The information on the scale is limited! Would you go to a Doctor who is a known Quack?..... I hope not! ....It's your life!
Stay calm and look for the positives instead!.. My spark friend, Nomi-822 shared recently that she had "only lost 3 pounds", yet she measured herself and the measurements revealed she lost a sum total of TEN inches! ..... What then did the scales NOT reveal?
I ask what is right and take mental inventory? .as I am here to have a healthy lifestyle, I have more energy; clothes are fitting better, muscles are firm and toned ....and yes, my measurements are smaller too! .
I know many people much younger than myself that have had heart attacks, strokes, joint replacements ... both hips and knees; serious mental break-downs, and faced cancer, I recently worked with a gal 38 years old who had BOTH breasts removed after a cancer diagnosis! ...:::: My first boyfriend died tragically in a motor cycle accident. An All star Athlete I grew up went to the hospital with excruciating stomach pain before his 30th birthday and never came home. Yes, Over twenty of my classmates died in their twenties.
In lieu of all this, can I really allow a metal device to ruin my day when I was expecting change?
August was a good month for me and I lost three pounds and more besides just weight.... But if those scales don't move, I move anyway! ..... And when the number rises, I consider the ST leg press I used and more the day before .... So my attitude with the scale is:
I am grateful that I am still standing, breathing, walking and talking and have the insight to share with you! ..... I hope you will reflect and recognize the positive changes you have made towards the best healthy lifestyle and continue to LOOK UP .... NOT DOWN ..
That's right! Keep smiling and looking up!
And Thanks for stopping by friends. Have a great day!
