Today is the day i set aside to weigh-in. In my goals and attempts to loose weight i found myself frustrated by weighing in everyday and seeing the scale ping-pong like a heart monitor!
(i dont know about you- but i like to see results: especially if i am working hard to change things!)
Well, i have to say that i am now "overweight"!! i have never been so happy to be labeled overweight in my life! Before you start thinking i need to be admitted to the phsyc ward, let me fill you in. . . i dont own a scale- i have wii Fit. If you have ever used said program you know that you can customize the mii to look just like you: eye color, height, hair and so forth and with the fit program you can even match the weight that you are carrying! Sounds exciting doesnt it?! i am a visual person and to step on that "scale" and watch my little mii go from normal to obese was depressing! The 'dun-dun-dun' music didnt help nor did the animated scale going "That's obese!" Every time you weigh-in and your mii swells with the poundage, her face grows sad as she looks down at her body- something like this....
For almost the last year now my mii has done this. The scale has taunted the "Thats obese" obviousness and would turn it off discouraged.
Since i started THM - i am down about 5 lbs. (and a total of 10 lbs since before Thanksgiving.) It is not going as fast as some other success stories, but i dont have 100's of pounds to shed. i am content with progress- which leads me back to being happy to being overweight! This morning marked the slip into the category of overweight!!! No longer obese, and that much closer to healthy!
Whereas i do have a goal weight in mind, i told my Mr.J that if i start to look unhealthy or funny on my journey there, i will stop and maintain that weight. Ultimately i want to glorify God with a healthy body and please my man! That means more than a number on a scale or a pant size! (which is part of what i have learned- how to do those things with where i am, but the challenge to be healthy and the best i can be could not go unanswered! This is something i needed to do!)
AND- i am on my way there!!
