I am not getting on that scale
Saturday, January 18, 2014
What a bender...I lost 9 pounds and gained it all back-- and then some. When I reset my intentions after Christmas, I told myself that I was not going to get back on that *#-! scale. Well, I peeked and I'm not even back to my starting point. But it's ok. My resolve is still strong and i'm trying not to obsess (even though I am). And I'm trying to put healthy lifestyle goals ahead of weight loss goals. That's going to take some time. So many years of one diet after another, not really incorporating the forever part of it.
I feel a little like a crazy person reading articles and talking to myself to stay motivated. I read a Spark article about putting the 'I' first so that's what I'm practicing today. That doesn't come easily either but, like everything else, it's about balance and perspective. So I'm off to start my day--and I'll try and listen to the angel on my shoulder and not the devil on my back!
