What does the scale have to say?
Usually I weigh myself everyday and I don’t worry too much about the ups and downs of it. But with 3 days not exercising and 2 days over indulging at Christmas time I will admit that I was a little worried about what my Wii balance board would show me.
So this morning I got on it and was pleasantly surprised to see that I still lost a pound from last week. YES YES YES. So I am at 194 pounds now for whatever it means. I am still waiting to see the real weight loss and the result on my general health. When I will feel a loose in my pants just then will I believe what the scale is telling me. Until then it’s a number that makes me happy but it is still just a number.
I was way lower on Dec. 23 but It’s why I like to write it down on my blog only once a week even if I step on the scale more often. That way I can see a real progress. So far I have lost 14 pounds and it feels good but sometimes I would like things to go faster. For me who do better with short goals it is a real challenge to be patient and work my way down slowly. I was thinking of lowering my calorie goal so that I would lose 1 1/2 pound instead of only 1. I am still unsure about that as I don’t want my journey to be too hard because it has to last and be enjoyable. I will give myself another month at this goal and see if I am ready to lower the calories a little more. Until then I have a few questions for you guys.
What is your goal per week?
Do you set yourself mini goals or you just aim for the ultimate weight goal at the end of your weight loss journey?
