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?
