Scales lie (not really)

Monday, March 29, 2010

Scales lie. I say this because I am the same weight I was one year ago. In a way, I can celebrate that I don't weigh more. But I feel like crap. I am out-of-shape, and that's what makes me feel fat - not the scale. I've lost muscle and put on fat, my clothes don't fit right, and I'm out of breath and energy.

It is easy for me to lie to myself when I see the number on the scale and be in denial - to tell myself that I don't need to do anything different because the scale tells me everything is OK. But that's just not true. So in the end, it's not the scale lying at all - it's me lying to myself.

So the question is, what will be the trigger for me to be honest & do something different? What do I care about enough to motivate me to stop being lazy & do something about it?

    My new motivation collage has been helping. It helped me to re-focus my energy and remember that my goals have changed, updated as I've attained my previous goals.

    I've asked myself the same question many times.... and still have not found an answer.
