To help inspire me to continue the Spark program, I play a little mind game with myself before getting on the scale. I set the balance to my weight milestones I have had over the past 6 months. I set the scale to my start weight in Feb to 266. I then step on the scale. The needle doesn't budge. YES!!! I step off and set it to 255, my weight in March. The needle doesn't budge.Yes!!! I step off and reset it for every month's milestone until I reach to the current weigh in. Last weigh in was Aug at 235.
This process reinforces the POSITIVE and gives me a mental readiness for the possibility the needle will go up before I reach the weight at which I think I should be. My thought process is already "look how far I've come" rather than "I'll never meet my goal" when the scale registers no weight loss.
