The scales is still bouncing around between 146 to 144 June 17 it only moved a little its now bouncing around 140 to 142 pounds . I am thankful its only a few pounds
YES at times its frustrating, and some days I find I don’t care of I stay on track with my eating. But know what will happen so have chats with my self often .
Sunday on Happy Healthy Sparkers we had a chat about being happy with the scales. And sometimes we feel if we are eating healthy and getting our fitness in and the scales refuses to move be happy..
I liked the idea for others but I still hear the doctor telling me ‘you need to be in the 120s. !
That is a long ways away at 140 pounds its another 20 pounds ! that really discouraged me.
I feel good, I was excited to see 140s on the scales on the scales
My cloths fit better I have even bought a size 16 pair of shorts . Several people at church told I looked good when I wore a dress to a funeral last week. Don’t usually wear a dress.
Today on our devotional thread I read our teams Daily Devotions with Dan Dick (June 17 thanks Shirley.)
I changed my mind I don’t need that magic number 120 pounds in my chart in the doctors office .
I need to enjoy where I am and continue to eat healthy and getting exercise.
Enjoy how I feel. How in my cloths fit eat healthy get fitness in each day.
“society would have us believe that the person who tries to do something is a failure unless he or she succeeds’’. ‘We need never grow discouraged when we don't lose weight, as long as we are doing the best job we can’’
I see now this is what I done. I at started at 200 pounds now I am in the 140s I have tried .I and don’t need to be discouraged I may never see that magical number 120 but I going to be happy where I am.
II not giving up but i am not going stress over the scales and miss out and the fun things I am going to find along way I have a summer adventure with my brother to look forward to will have no idea where it will take us.
