I stepped on the scale this morning and my initial reaction was to pout a little bit.
I wandered around our apartment, made some coffee, logged in to Weight Watchers Online to update my weight tracker and take my measurements, but I was still pouty.
I lost .6 lbs this week, which is no reason to pout. So now I'm practicing positive self talk.
Come on, Meg. Pull yourself together. Think of how great a loss, any loss, will feel after a few weeks at a plateau. You worked hard for that slightly-more-than half pound! Be proud of it! They add up, and as long as the scale is moving downward, be happy about it.
I'm disappointed because I really wanted to hit my 5% of my body weight goal before we left for our holiday at the end of the month. I'm close - but I don't think I'll be able to reach it by next week. I'm doing all the right things, but my body apparently needs time to adjust. I believe that if I can stay positive and on track, I will see results and I will reach my goal.
A small loss is still a loss!
