Mind over Matter

Why is it that one thing can be stuck in our mind... and we let it weigh us down (literally!)
I am pretty sure that stubborn pound that I worked so hard to get rid of was just a mental block. I finally overcame it! The whole next week it was still in the fore front of my mind that it was not truly gone, but it would haunt me the next week. SO what did I do? I skipped my Weight Watchers meeting and worked on it for one more week! I went back Monday, and yes it is still gone, plus a little more! However, I lost what I could have learned at that meeting because of a mentality. I know it is not all about the scale.. and even preach that, but when it came down to it I let it bog me down. I guess in a sense I did let it motivate me.. now, I am dropping more quickly. Heading to the next goal. I am just glad that I made the choice long ago that I am doing this for life... not for a season. So it really doesn't matter if I wasn't down that pound for those weeks... I am still sticking to it. That ... is Mind over Matter.
