“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, then starting on the first one.”
Gosh, it’s that time again. Weigh In Day. Seems like these weeks are just flying by!
Before I get to my weigh in there are some other things…
Am I losing you?: I know I haven’t accomplished anything with my weight loss. I don’t have any awesome workout secrets to share. I wish I could come here every week and report some great news, secret or victory. And I feel like I am always talking in circles.
Please, don’t give up on me yet!
Fall Colors: Today is December 15th. Half way through the month. 6 days before winter officially begins. Check out what I finally saw in my front yard yesterday!
Cookies: I just got rid of the M&M’s in my house and look what ended up in my hands last night. Happy Holidays right to my stomach, hips, thighs, and butt!
Weigh In and thoughts: Okay, it’s finally that time. I was not particularly motivated to take my measurements this morning, let alone step on the scale. So no measurements from me today. But I did record a slight loss on the scale this morning.
|That is a loss of .6 pounds since last Wednesday.
While I am thrilled to see loss this week and I am still trying to figure out this whole weight loss “thing”. I believe I am OVER thinking it because it really can’t be THIS hard, can it? In this moment, weight loss seems very complex to me and I don’t know why. All the numbers and details seem to cloud my thinking and over power me. It’s like I am missing the answer on how to solve the problem. I often wonder if I am just not trying hard enough. I am still waiting for when it will finally “click” with me.
Question: While you are on your weight lose journey, what numbers do you focus on or worry about? The number on the scale? Calories in vs calories out? BMR or BMI? How are you losing weigh without over thinking the situation and stressing out about it?
