Made to Crave [Day 44] Thought for the Day: It's easy to do the right things when we see immediate results. But sometimes it pleases God more to do the right thing even when the results are not so immediate.
I am down to my last 12-15 pounds. I do really well during the week, but the weekends are my trouble areas. I still workout on the weekends, in fact my longer runs are always on Sunday and I make sure to hit a Pure Barre class on Saturday.
BUT. I still struggle with what I eat.
I know that there are some people out there who have "broken up" with the scale. I am not one of those people. I still want to hit my goal. And I still think my goal is attainable.
However, I have to admit when I step on the scale on Fridays and it doesn't say what I want it to say, I get frustrated.
I am in the middle of persevering to the end of my journey. This year has been much harder for me than last year was.
I don't see the results that I used to and I am stubborn.
Being stubborn is a national past time in my family, it seems. And yes, it is a good thing to continue to get back up when I fall down again. It is not a good thing to make a bad choice in the food department because I didn't get my way with the scale.
The scale isn't the problem. It's the person standing on it.
When I let go of reaching for food to console, congratulate, encourage, etc me, then I will move forward.
I have got to be stubborn, but in the right way. I think a better word for this is persevere.
Anyways, this is why I haven't been posting weight updates. I'm stuck and I'm not happy about it. I just thought sharing would be a good thing because I am sure someone has been here before me. So solidarity sister!
What are some things that motivated you to the end? What pushed you forward? Any favorite sayings or healthy truths?
