Hi, my pretties! It has been too long and I have been trying to find a subtle way for you and I to get reacquainted, but I realize that I'm just overthinking this. LOL...
The other day I was looking in the mirror and I thought "I look pretty good you know, humm." Then I turned and looked at the scale. I have vowed never to weight myself anymore. It's to much pressure, plus at one point I was getting on it every morning. However, a few days before, I did and I absolutely hated the number I saw. It's funny how you can feel and see changes in your body, once you decide that you're going to be in the best shape of your life, but the scale is such a bitch. You've been doing all the right things, but that BITCH will not move. So, I had to stop weighting myself and my scale and I have become estranged. Bye Bye..
I really had to get clear about what it is I am trying to achieve. I don't want to necessarily lose weight. I want to burn and lose the fat, while tightening and toning by building lean muscle mass. I noticed for myself that I like the way I look in clothes for the most part, but when I get naked my perspective changes... I don't love the way I look NAKED. Ugh! I asked myself this question; "What are you going to do about it?!"
I'm letting go of giving up. Consistency is hard, but it is the only way to eventually see the results you crave. When I weight myself often I find myself giving up or discouraged and that is a nemesis to consistency. Progress begins and ends with consistency. So, fuck the scale. I'm going to the gym!
