I Quit...

… The scale that is!

I’m tired of stepping on it and getting discouraged because it doesn’t move! I hate the way it makes me feel like I am putting in so much work but getting no results! I don’t like being ruled by a number. I don’t like the negativity that I associate with the evil little thing… I don’t like the negativity that I associate with myself because of its lack of movement, or its movement in the wrong direction (but who’s fault is that really?)

So I’ve decided to quit the scale and I’m not taking measurements. I’m just focusing on myself! I’m focusing on the way my close fit… the way I feel when I look in the mirror… I’m not letting the numbers rule me anymore. I want things to be different this time! I want to be able to actually make it through a summer and holiday season without gaining at least 10 lbs (if not more)! I want my focus to be on positive lifestyle changes and not getting caught up in numbers! If and when people ask me how much weight I’ve lost I want my response to be, “I have no idea!”

No, I'm not dead... It's just been a while!

I’ve been sitting here staring at a blank screen… Should I or shouldn’t I? I like having it because I like being able to look back, but I feel like I’m saying the same thing over and over… So why even start again? Even now I’m debating if I should start posting again… What would I say? Does anyone even read it? Does anyone even care?

Well… I read it… I care… and if you don’t like what I have to say that’s too bad! I probably won’t be able to post every day and not all my posts are going to be exercise or weight loss related. I just want to be able to look back at more than a few months at of the year before I disappear again!

So with that I’ll leave you wondering and waiting with sweet anticipation as to when my next post will be and what it will be about…
