Maybe I should call this Truth Tuesday? I don’t really know why I am so stuck on the alliteration aspect :P Any way…
I had already chosen my blog topic before weighing-in today because I thought I was going to have a bad weigh-in. Well …
I didn’t :) I lose 1.2 lbs for a grand weight loss total of …. 45 lbs!! YAY!
I seriously was not sure when this number would finally appear. I feel like I have been stuck around 40 for quite some time. At least now, I am half way to 50! 50. Wow, I might actually cry when I hit that mark.
So I was thinking this week about how much emphasis I put on the number on the scale. Like if I think it should be a good number and it isn’t, my whole demeanor changes. My mood worsens and I am generally unhappy the rest of the week. I know that since it is a weight loss journey I would put a lot of pressure on what the scale says. But the longer I am on this journey, the more the priority changes. I want to really start celebrating the non-scale victories.
Future Fit Girl had a similar post last week.
So this week I have 3 non-scale celebrations:
2) I went to Lululemon Athletica on Saturday and actually FIT into their clothes. Woo! That felt amazing!! I have wanted some of their workout attire for ages.
3) Today marks 6 months since I had my last Diet Coke/soda. It was definitely harder at first, but water is proving to be a fine replacement. EXCEPT, when I am somewhere without a Dunkin Donuts – then it is definitely still tough!
So folks, what do you have to celebrate today??
