I started my new lifestyle adventure on June 1st. I stopped eating sugar and refined carbs and I threw out my scale. I am walking at the track at the local university and climbing the stairs at the stadium. I have had some frustrations along the way, but for the most part this plan is really working for me. Lately I have been regretting the loss of my scale, but I know myself well enough that if I plateau, I will start emotional eating, and that is just bad in so many ways!
This past weekend we went to a local lighthouse festival. Lighthouses are my passion! I had the opportunity to climb to the top of the lighthouse and even though I was fearful that I wouldn't be able to do it, I climbed to the top and it was EASY! Taking those steps at the stadium every day paid off in an unexpected way! I was so pleased!
And then this morning, when searching for a shirt to wear to work, I decided to try a shirt that had been tight across my stomach and it is loose! Almost too big! Woo Hoo!!!
So, I will contine to stay away from my scale and take these non-scale victories with much happiness!
Thanks for letting me "crow" this morning! Have a wonderful week!!!!!
Whatever you ardently desire,
Sincerely believe in,
Vividly imagine, and
Enthusiastically act upon,
Must inevitably come to pass.
