Scale Got You Down?

Scale Got You Down?

Sometimes your victories don’t necessarily show up on the scale. Sometimes your victories are more than just numbers. Sometimes your victories show up on your body that you never saw before. Sometimes your progress is more than just what shows on the scale.

Sometimes weight loss shows up in inches and not in numbers on the scale. Have you recently put on a shirt or pants, and it is a little less snug? Victory the scale doesn’t show!

Have you walked down to get your mail at the end of the driveway and not pass out on the way back up? Victory the scale doesn’t show!

Have you been to the Doctors office and been able to wear a regular sized gown? Victory the scale doesn’t show!

Have you been on a recent flight and have not had to ask for a seat extender for the first time?

Victory the scale doesn’t show!

The list can go on and on… When you make small victories, they don’t always show up on the scale as a weight loss.

One pound at a time is all you need to continue on your journey of weight loss. Don’t get too overwhelmed by what the scale is showing you. Inches also count! And remember one pound is four sticks of butter! That is a whole lot of weight off your body! Don’t get discouraged. Don’t live your life by the scale alone. Relax, you didn’t put this weight on your body in a week, it will take time to come back off. You just need to focus on doing the right stuff to permanently lose it, and the scale will tip in the right direction for you!

It’s not going to happen overnight! The sooner you realize this, the easier it will be for you to let go of only focusing on what the scale shows you! Little victories are all you need to keep going. So, keep going and embrace those small victories away from the scale no matter what they may be!

Happy New Year! Happy New You!
