Hanging in there vs. going strong
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
I've been at this for less than two weeks. I've been going strong all along, but today I feel like I'm just hanging in there. I weighed myself this morning, even though I've told myself I'll only weigh once a week. I just can't resist that scale and I need to learn that it is not my friend. While the weight isn't going up, it is not going down terribly fast and the day the day fluctuations are messing with my head.
So, while I feel like I've been going strong all along, my weigh in this morning has deflated me enough that I feel like I'm just hanging in there. I had quite an ambitious goal for the first month and there is no way I'm going to reach it. Instead of getting frustrated, I've recalculated everything and reset my first goal, set a second goal and changed my final goal date.
I hope that with those new numbers in my head, I won't get discouraged with the small numbers lost on the scale. I also took my measurements yesterday so I can start paying attention to that instead.
Here's to going strong again...not just "hanging in there!"
