Monday Morning Weigh-In

Today was my second weigh-in to check my progress.  It was a little disappointing to see that after a week of eating well and exercising the number on the scale went up a pound to 172.  I do know that weight, especially in women, fluctuates, so I am not taking it too personally.  I know that, regardless of what the scale says, I do feel better when I am eating properly and exercising regularly.  Even after a week I can tell changes in my body, ever so slight, but changes non-the-less.  I am looking forward to next week, when I will expect to see more progress.

Thought of the Day: I have found that over the course of this week I have been looking at my body so differently.  I am appreciating what I have and not constantly letting myself be disappointed if I am not getting the results when I want them.  Eventually, living a healthy lifestyle will inevitably give me a healthy body! 

Question for my followers: How do you handle yourself when you seem to hit a speed bump on the road to your goal?

  1. usually I would turn to food but recently I've been repeating a few things to myself to keep on track;
    one is your comment about God not making junk the other is from the sermon our preacher gave last week about wisdom; "It's not about perfection. It's about patterns"
    These remind me that every good choice I make is part of a pattern for a healthy life and a step in the right direction & that I am worth it!
