Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Weekly Weigh-In: Learning To Love Small Victories

aug 3 weightI’m down a total of 0.6 lbs. Not as much as I hoped, but I’ll take it. The needle moved in the right direction and I need to keep it up. This plateau’s kung fu is very strong. But I’m stronger. I will break its death grip.

I have essentially lost 2 sticks of butter this week. When you put it that way, -0.6 lbs is pretty frickin’ awesome.

Funny, when I got off the scale I felt disappointed. I know that the average safe weight loss is up to 2 lbs a week.  But like most people, I focus on “2 lbs” and that becomes my weekly benchmark. I need to temper my expectations. If I keep up the work I’m doing this week – eating right and exercising – I’ll have weeks where I’m down 2 lbs or 0.3 lbs.

I just need to keep my eyes on the prize and celebrate all the victories…no matter the size.
