That Stupid Box

Every now and then I get discouraged because I don't feel as if I'm losing weight as quickly as I have done in the past. However, it is a good reminder that every journey is different, and just because the scale doesn't move, doesn't mean I haven't seen success. 

I've lost 38 pounds in just a little over two months. I take steps into work instead of taking the elevator like I used to. I don't get winded climbing those two flights anymore, and that is something to celebrate.

When you get discouraged, look at how far you've come, and when the number on the scale doesn't budge, think about all of your non-scale victories. Do your clothes fit better? Did you run that mile a little bit faster than before? Sometimes, these wins can be so much better than seeing decreasing number appear inside of an electronic box.

I'm going to start focusing more on how I feel instead of the number in that stupid box. It's going to be difficult, considering I have based my success on that number my entire life, but I know it's possible. I am more than just a number, and I'm doing this for me. I started this journey to get healthy, feel better about myself, and become stronger than I have ever been before, and I can't wait to accomplish so much more.
