Some you may have seen my status from this morning if not, here it is:
"....it seems I figured out how to MAINTAIN my weight...175.8 for 3rd week in a row. Let's see how I can break out of this rut and shake things up this week."
I want to say I've hit a plateau, but I truly don't think that is it.
What I've hit is a comfortable area...comfortable with the routines: comfortable with the foods I am eating, the workouts I'm doing, even the clothes size I am in.
While it's good to feel good about your day, I'd rather feel GREAT about my choices.
For me, comfort sometimes equals complacency. And I think this is the case.
I've obviously changed my eating and fitness level or I would no have dropped those initial pounds, but I signed up to lose 2 lbs a week and I am NO WHERE near that on ANY week.
If you look at my weight tracker chart you'll see I've never even gotten CLOSE to that goal line. As a matter of fact, it looks like I've come to a full on stall....
But doing the same things over and over again - while building routine and consistency - can also build a brick wall that either needs to be torn down and broken through or somehow overcome.
You know the old saying - if you do the same thing over and over again expecting different results...well, that's just plumb silly. (ok, not the exact wording, but my version of it, lol)
So it's time to ramp it up.
This week I am shaking things up a bit in my routine. I am trying new things. I am going to be adventurous. And I am GOING to break through!
Each day is a new day - a new FRESH start to create a new ME.
I know the # on the scale is just a #, and it WILL eventually change - but not unless "I" do.
So here goes...onward to a new exciting week and all the fun discoveries I will encounter along the way to finding ME.

If you've been reading my blog entries you know the tug of war I've been having with the numbers on my scale (and how they never EVER seem to change).
Well, starting today, I am giving up shooting for that lower number and instead aiming for a HIGHER number...with my Fitness Minutes, that is!
I want to stay active and motivated while here on SP and in the forums and teams, but seeing that blasted weight-loss ticker never moving is a bit depressing so I decided that if the weight won't go down, the minutes WILL go up - and seeing my ticker tick closer to my monthly minutes goal each time I log my fitness will give me a fresh burst of inspiration!
So I say...down with the scale (and eventually the number on it, heehee) and UP with the minutes!!!
And I know that pushing myself harder by wanting that ticker to move WILL get me to the healthiest me I can be - whatever that size ends up being ;)

I love to start my day with morning devotions, then pour a cup of tea with lemon and start diving into the articles here on SP.
It just starts my day out RIGHT!
Here is an article I came across this morning it is was a HUGE encouragement to me. Maybe you've not yet read it - I hope it inspires you!
Maybe you HAVE read it - I hope it leaves you feeling a refreshment of motivation.
Here is the link to:
"10 Signs You are Getting Healthier, Even if the Scale Doesn't Move"
May your day be a joyous one!

Continuing on from yesterday's blog post....
I reweighed myself this morning and according to the new scale....I am at 181
While the number still looks a little shocking to me (since the old scale was showing me weighing in at 176), I am keeping in mind that it is only 5 lbs more than what I originally thought.
AND since I am seeing my body shape slimming down, have a major increase in energy and stamina, and my joint pain has lessened quite a bit, I am claiming ALL vistories up to this point.
181 is just a number...and that number WILL be going down.
It already HAS gone down, even if I don't actually know by how much since the original weight was so far off.
But no matter...I've reset the weight-loss ticker and am not letting it steal my JOY
Here's to a fun, fit Saturday for us all. The weather here is GORGEOUS...time to get outside and enjoy it.
Wishing you all an AWESOME day!!!
