The Scale


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

This week I lost one pound. I got on the scale and said sarcastically, "Oh woohoo 1 stinking pound." My friend I was going to work out with that morning said "Yes you lost a pound! It's better than nothing." Remembering to celebrate the little victories!

    I understand. I got on an lost 1/2 pound and felt the same way, but ya know... at the end of the day. 1/2 less is better than 1/2 more. emoticon Slow and steady wins the race.

    I'm glad I read this today...I can certainly gain weight without much effort but it is soooo hard to lose it. I weighed this morning...lost 1 lb and have been fighting all day to remember that ate least I lost and not gained. Thanks for helping me to remember to celebrate all victories~no matter how small. emoticon
