This morning I went in for my weekly weigh-in sure to see a good loss...I mean I ate healthy snacks allllll week! But down .4 lbs. was not really what I had wanted to see. So I'm trying really hard to not let that number put me in a negative mood. The scale can only measure one thing...the scale can't measure that I finally wore a pair of jeans that fit me before pregnancy last night...the scale can't measure that I've lost over an inch on each arm...the scale can't measure that I had more energy this week while I exercised despite staying up all night with a sick baby...the scale can't measure that my wedding ring fits better and doesn't give me claustrophobia to wear it anymore!
So if you're like me and your weigh-in is not quite what you wanted, remember the scale really only measures one thing. And that one thing is just a number. Keep making healthy choices, keep trying, keep being consistent...results will come over time. Trust your body and trust the process! (I'm writing this for me more than anyone else).
