Ok, you guys may be wondering why in the world I am weighing in day 5 of my week instead day 7. Well, I learned a long time ago perfection isn’t worth it. I felt myself slipping. I thought I needed some structure so I began a week on plan without ‘officially’ weighing in. (For the record, I officially weigh in on the Weight Watchers scales) I started when I needed to start, not “tomorrow”, not “on Sunday”, not after my first week of classes because it would be “to hard”, I started now, well then, whatever you get my point. I made enough of those procrastinating remarks in the past and I never found success until I stopped putting off what I could do today EVEN if it was a Friday, or in the afternoon of a day I already pigged out on pizza. Every choice is a new choice. It took me a long time to figure that out and lose the “all or nothing” mentality and honestly, sometimes I still struggle with it.
So you may be wondering how the weigh in went. This is another lesson is mindset that took a long time to master. I was UP! (144.6) After all my hard work these past 5 days I gained! However, I am NOT going to let it get me down, especially after my morning scale reading. Remember that number on the scale is just a number. If you know you are making the best choices you can don’t let the scale derail you. It will catch up.
Alright, sorry for the preachy post today. Just know, I’m normally telling myself what it is I need to hear so I feel better. It’s like my own personal pep talk.
