I hit a small speed-bump along my road to recovery this week. It was the “Progress” speed-bump.
I have been moving along on this journey fairly well. I have made healthy changes in my life through following a nutrition and training plan to a “T”.
Then came ….the bump!
I decided to hop on the scale, just for kicks. To my surprise the number on the scale was the exact same as when I started this process 18 weeks ago. This surprised me, and brought me down a few notches. All I could think was, “with all of the changes that I have made…why is that number being so stubborn?”
After a bit of time, I came to my senses. My progress is not entirely measured by the number on the scale.
Since starting this process I can name a number of areas in my life that have improved. I am happier. I have time to do the things that I love. I have a healthier relationship with food. I have a plan and know that I am moving in the right direction.
For me, progress is steady improvement. Dropping weight quickly is what got me into this mess…dropping it slowly will help to get me out of it!
Thank you for reading my progress thoughts! Enjoy your holiday!
