It's been 21 weeks since I first began the Nutrisystem program! Today as I hopped on the scale, I wanted to scream because for two weeks that sucker has not budged! I guess it is a good thing that I haven't gained but i want movement (in the negative direction)!
After a few choiced words directed at the scale, I stomped off to pout on my computer. As I played around online, I happened on a post from a friend of mine. Sharon from A Little Bit Of Everything is on a weight loss journey herself and wrote a post about her battle with the scale. How fitting, right? Something in her post really touched me, it was a game she played with her daughter. Her daughter would get on the scale and ask what it says. She replied "It says you are perfect." This hit home big time! You see, my little girl watches me and likes to "mimic" me. She sometimes hops on the scale herself and asks "Mommy, how many pounds am I?" I would tell her but since reading Sharon's post, I now say...
And she is and so am I.
The scale does not define me nor does the number on the scale prove my worth. I am a success, not because of how many pounds I have lost but because of how hard I work at making better eating choices and taking care of my body. Sure, Nutrisystem provides me with awesome food to make this weight loss journey much easier but I work my butt off, literally! And for that, I totally rock! The scale might not always show it but I know my body thanks me.
