Week 11 Weigh In:
Change this week: -.5 lbs.
Change overall: -30.5 lbs.
Ugh. I knew this would happen. I was prepared for it -- but I'm still bummed out. I only lost a half a pound this week. And it was barely a half a pound - when I re-weighed myself after brushing my teeth, it was a totally flat weigh-in. I'd already recorded the half pound loss, so, that was my official count... but, still. UGH.
Now, I know any loss is a good loss... and every week that I stick to my plan is a step in the right direction. But it's hard to stay motivated when you feel like you're working hard and making good decisions and the scale is not giving you evidence of that.
So, this week I'm going to concentrate on some of the things that are a testament to my success regardless of those annoying little numbers on the scale.
Obviously, your victories will be different from mine. And sometimes it's hard to notice them, even when they are happening all around you. Here are a few tips to get past the scale doldrums:
Of course, the most satisfying thing in all of this isn't related to the scale or a dress size or any other external goal or reward. Every week that I'm sticking to my program I'm feeling better and, more importantly, feeling better about myself. Take a deep breath and think about the distance you've come and the changes you've made -- whether you've been at it for a year or a few days, you're that much closer to where you want to be.
