Feeling Good

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I see my doctor in less than two months, and have decided not to weigh myself until then for many reasons. Joining SP has been a blessing. I've learned how to eat all over again and take care of my body. There have been a couple of slip ups, but nothing too major. At this point I know that if I see the number on the scale I'll just start crying. I need all the support I can get. Short of sounding 'emo,' I cannot thank everyone enough for sending e goodies and words of encouragement. I really, really need all of that. It's hard looking in the mirror and wondering why you et yourself get to this point.

With all of that being said, I can tell I've lst weight. I'm standing taller and I'm not pinching as much on my sides. It's something that only I can probably notice right now.

I just want to be healthy.

    I do not have the scales out. The doctors office and the chiropractor is where and when I weigh. May be once a month.

    I don't know if you read PIXIE-LICIOUS blogs but she doesn't weigh herself. That seemed very amazing to me. I just couldn't get to the 20 pound loss that I wanted as my first goal. Would get to 17 or 18 and then just stuck. Well, I got my 20 lbs. gone and now am not going to step on the scale again for awhile. Maybe not until Christmas. Pixie has 100 day thing going on because it's about 100 days until New Years so instead of waiting she's doing it now. That made big sense to me. You are (we all are) so much more than a number on a scale. I learned NSV here at SP-it means Non Scale Victories...like no inch to pinch, clothes that fit better or better yet, are falling off, more energy, better sleep at night, not being out of breath after a few flights of stairs...all those things that are not measured by the scale but are definitely victories on the road to health and wellness.

    I love SP for the same reasons you do. The goodies come at just the perfect time and the comments let you know that people are reading what you write and cheering you on.

    I dislike the scale as well, and am now more focused on non scale victories. Good luck! emoticon emoticon

    That sounds like perfect timing. I've heard it said that it takes about that long for others to notice, so you can just keep on keeping on - and it will be a wonderful result. Glad you are feeling a bit more positive. Keep that chin up, and Onwards and Upwards!

    Just hang in there, keep going, don't give up even if you slip and slide some. You will become healthier by the day!

    And speaking of weighing and scales, I just read CHERYL_ANNEs awesome blog-post posted today on the subject;

    We all slip up from time to time and I believe all of us benefit from the support here or wherever we can get it. Your Spark People family want you to succeed. I have a long way to go and have to continually remind myself of two things, (1) it took years to get in the (bad) shape I'm in, so give it a couple years to make the necessary corrections and (2) if I want to succeed I have to get right back up when I fall down. Some days it seems like it would be easier to just give up and accept what I've become, and every once in a while I do give up, but only for a day. I get back on Spark People and see all the wonderful success stories and remind myself "if they can do it so can I". You can do this, and the day when you look back and say "I did it" will be here sooner than you realize. Keep a positive attitude, don't beat yourself up if you fall down, and if you're feeling weak, reach out for help, whether it be here or elsewhere. emoticon
