After I wrote my last post, I got to thinking about how it might have sounded like I let the scale determine my success and my mood. And this morning when I was reading through the comments, Carla and Roxie reminded me not to let the scale, or the number I see on the scale, be the deciding factor on how I feel. In the past, I did let that "number" upset me when it didn't go the way I'd hoped. But lately, I am so determined to look at this trip down weight-loss lane as a means to a better me, that the number I see only makes me work harder.
And the number on the scale today is a good indication that I'm doing things right. I saw 250.4 on my scale! That's a loss of 1.6 lbs since last Monday. And yes, it did make me really happy. But I can feel the changes in my body and in my energy and how my clothes are fitting and that means much more to me than the number I got in today's weigh-in.
If it weren't for blogging, I'm not so sure I would have this healthy attitude about my success. The encouraging words and motivation that blogging brings into my day are must-have travel accessories for this weight-loss trip! I want this time to be the last time I'm faced with losing this much weight. I want this journey to be IT!!!
Happy Monday! And don't forget to drink your water!
