Sometimes I feel like nothing has changed. When I get stuck at a weight, like I have been for a while, I forget that I ever lost any weight. I let myself get sucked into the fat thinking that I’ve always been this size, and it’s a fat one. I forget that even though I’m stuck, I’ve made progress. Sometimes I need a visual reminder of my weight loss so far. So, here it is.
That’s some progress. Look. Remember. I might be stuck now, but I’ve changed.
I’m fitter. I’m healthier.
I weigh less than I did.I’ve lost inches. I’ve lost dress sizes.
I’m training for a triathlon!
I can run! I can play rugby!
I’m not at my goal yet, but that doesn’t mean I should discount everything else. No, I shouldn’t do that. So this is reminder to stop doing that.
Just because I’m not at my goal weight, doesn’t mean I haven’t lost weight. It doesn’t mean I haven’t improved my life. It just means I’m currently rocking life and slowly on my way to the goal weight.
I’ll get to goal eventually and add a third picture to this lineup, but for now? Celebrating successes so far. Because they count too.
