Last month, I went back to my weight loss goals, as the end of the year is now quickly approaching. I felt it was important to really focus on it since that has been my main goal for the whole year. As a reminder, this was the goal I set for November…
So, how did I do? Well, I made it into the 140’s for one week, but I did not get down to 146 by the end of the month like I had hoped.
Seeing the scale hit the 140’s, even if for just a brief moment, was so exciting. Given that it was the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving and one that I would be off and away from my normal routine, meant it would be a challenge. And it was. Excuses? Maybe, but all these factors worked together to cause a gain at yesterday’s weigh-in and put me back in the 150’s.
But, despite what the scale says, this last month has brought with it a lot of changes that I feel and see. My clothes are fitting different, I’m back in size 10 jeans, and I am wearing shirts from the back of my closet that I thought I wouldn’t be able to wear again. I am a firm believer in that when you eat right and work out, there will be weeks the scale will go down and other that they won’t, but you will still feel it because your body is rearranging itself. It can take awhile for it to catch up to what the scale says. These non-scale victories are a huge motivator to keep pushing, to keep going!
