Attitude Check – Weekly Weigh In

Ya’ll…gains are going to happen.  It is part of the journey.  I knew this week I was going to gain.  I just wasn’t sure how much!  Here is what I saw when I stepped on the scale yesterday:

February 23, 2015 Weekly Weigh In

A gain of 0.8.

I wasn’t nearly as upset as I used to get when I had a gain.  I used to let my mood be affected by what the scale said.  I used to have a whole day ruined because of a gain.  I used to obsess over the gain all day and sometimes for several days.

This time was different.  It was what it was and that’s all that it was.

What changed?

I think I have realized that this is truly a journey!  It is not going to happen overnight or even in a month.  This journey I am in is going to take the rest of my life!  Gains are going to happen.  Losses are going to happen more (I sure hope!).  The journey will continue and the attitude we have makes all the difference.

I know why I gained.  I know the changes I need to make in order to stay on track and focused.  It is up to me.  I have the power to lose and to change.  It is a choice.

This week, I am going to re-focus and do what I know I need to do in order to lose again.  I am on this journey…good and bad.  I WILL use this setback to make a comeback.  Moving on…

How was your week?  Did you do good last week or do you need to refocus?

A setback is a setup for a comeback
