I have decided that Mondays are going to be the days that I will weight myself. I will only do this once a week for motivation, and although I have a pound goal, I am not chained to the scale! During the month, women fluctuate up to 5 pounds! Therefore, I use the scale as a loose reference point.
My starting weight:171
My goal (for healthy BMI): 145
Thought of the day: You are an original, like we talked about yesterday, so why do we constantly compare our bodies to other people. Here’s an idea, let’s stop posting pictures of other peoples bodies as “thinspiration” and instead start visualizing our own bodies at our final goal. Visualization techniques are used by the best athletes, so let’s try it for ourselves. If we keep looking at other women we are only going to be disappointed, because you are original, just like they are. You might be the same weight, even the same height, but you will not look the same and that is OK! In fact, it is a wonderful thing! Let’s start loving our bodies, today!
