I know sometimes it isn’t pretty and this time of year a week of maintaining is a victory, but whatever your results, knowing where you are helps you know if you need to adjust.
There’s no shame in determining that your holiday goal is maintaining your current weight-loss…but you need to make sure you’re doing that. Finding extra pounds on the scale in January isn’t any more fun than finding those credit card statements in the mailbox.
So, if you’ve been avoiding the scale, go take a quick peek and just assess where you are. We’ll wait.
I was a little worried about stepping on the scale yesterday after last week’s gain. Plus there was the fact that I didn’t feel like I’d done significantly better in my eating or workouts last week.
Apparently, I did something right, though because I lost 2 pounds! I was very pleasantly surprised. That puts me at 0.8 pounds from hitting the 90 pounds lost milestone. Um, yeah, guess what my goal is this week.
So, what about you? How did you do on the scale last week?
Do or do not. There is no try.
