Like you, O&T, I’m a daily weigher as I find it helps me stay accountable, accepting fluctuations and using them to help me focus, regardless of which direction the reading has taken. Some people find the daily fluctuations tough to deal with though and if they are likely to knock off kilter by them, it’s better they don’t weigh in as often.
There are other ways to gauge progress … taking measurements; how well garments are fitting; and indeed our fitness levels. All of these are valid markers for how things are going and indeed, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the bigger picture and not focusing solely on one gauge of progress.
It’s really good that you are accepting of your situation O&T, beating ourselves up for gains and transgressions is a waste of energy and just breds negativity, making us feel worse. You’ve made great progress, so keep going and keep us posted.
Elle, glad your fiance is on the mend.
SG, your doing brilliantly … I’m confident you’ll be where you want to be for your doc appointment.
Ruby, hang in there. We all get those days when getting in the right headspace just doesn’t happen. Just try to make good choises for the next meal and take it from there.
Julz, really pleased you are getting back to more normal activity again … don’t over do things though, be gentle with yourself.
V, I’m kind of where you are … in need of pulling out the BSD tools to really make progress. Like you say, just need to keep on.
Lauren, hope you are doing okay, take things gently.
Happy Women’s Day to you all … Hope it’s been a good day for everyone.
