Default Small Victories

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.

wow! That is so cool. Take pictures that you can blow up. And dedicate a wall to your passion! A good one would be of the view from the top! These are awesome victories!

MissBliss,that's AWESOME!! Isn't it amazing to know what great shape you've gotten in? It's so cool when you feel like you've suddenly gotten fit; every gradual change pays off! It is also awesome that a once tight shirt is now even too big for you. YEAH, GO YOU! NO victory is small.
Fit and fabulous forbids one from feeling frumpy!
