Default I really HAVE lost weight!

OK, my ticker says I'm down 13 lbs, but I really am not convinced. I keep thinking it's a fluke or a temporary thing. I haven't made any big changes in diet or exercise, & I guess I didn't think small changes could make a difference.

Tonight, against my better judgment, I weighed myself - after dinner, fully clothed, fully expecting to be back to my starting weight. It was down 8 lbs from my starting weight (the last time I weighed myself at night fully dressed). I really am excited! I don't know why I have such a fear that I won't possibly be able to lose weight, other than years of telling myself that.

Anyway, it wasn't a NSV, but a mental victory, I suppose....

Just wanted to share!

That mental victory is very important. Now you know that you can lose weight!


Persistence is more important than Perfection

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. - Winston Churchill
