Monthly Weight Check 7/28

Standard

Ok I am not too happy about my weight at the moment. I have been doing what I need to but did not reach my goal. Realistically, I know I did improve because as I said in my last post I lost an inch off of my backside. But as far as reaching that magic number for this month, I did not quite make it. I’m not going to beat myself up about it but it is a little annoying when you know you are working out and you are eating right and there is not enough change. I know that it is so easy to get discouraged when you don’t see what you want to see, but I am not going to do that. I see the difference in my shape and the way my clothes fit. I feel the difference when I am out hiking with my family. I know the difference every day that I wake up, I feel so much more energy. So whereas my number has not reached my goal, my body is changing and I know those numbers will change.

 

My next monthly goal August 25, 2016 – 173 pounds     current weight: 178.8

  1. One of the best ways to become discouraged is to focus on the number on a scale. Think about it; your clothing is fitting more LOOSELY, you’re able to hike with the family in a new light, you’re eating healthier and nourishing your body to provide it the tools that PREVENT DISEASE, you’re exercising and gaining physical strength and endurance, YET if the number on a scale doesn’t register, all the other POSITIVE changes feel LESS FULFILLING! 4 Huge POSITIVE improvements and 1 NEGATIVE feedback and the mission feels unfulfilling. Stay focused on becoming the healthy person you’re striving to become. Learn, read, discuss your strategies with people you trust are qualified to give good advice and most of all, LEARN TO ENJOY THE JOURNEY. Weight is ONLY a SYMPTOM of underlying problems. If they are ALL being addressed, the SYMPTOM will “go away.” Don’t make the typical mistake by letting the scale determine your level of success!

    • Thank you so much!! It is so easy to get discouraged when things don’t go the way you want them to but this time I won’t because so much has changed and I feel so good on the inside. 🙂
