Why do we lessen our accomplishments?
I am forever reading where people will say something like "I lost 5lbs las week." and then follow it up with "But I know it was only water weight" or some other "supportive person" will say "Great...but you know that was probably only water weight."
it is statements like that that lessen how hard we have worked to lose weight....whatever form it is in. I don't know about anyone else but I don't have a scale that, when I step on it, gives me a separate reading for water and one for fat. When I get on the scale it says "200" and that is what I weigh...bones, skin, water, blood, everything.
When I lose weight I don't really care what form it is in. Weight is weight and I am proud that I lost it...
