For those of us that have been on this journey for a minute, we know it's not always easy to stay motivated to continue. Given my second gain in as many weeks, I decided that it might be a good time to share our non-scale victories (NSV) and/or perhaps our "why".
Non-scale victories for me:
I have had Blue Dots 12 out of the last 14 days. I have hit my step goal for 9 days. Other than the days I've been under the weather and only drinking Ginger Ale, I've hit my water goal of 64 oz. Other things, I've meal planned or have come up with ideas that stay within my Daily Points.
As for my "why", I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I want to be able to get up the mountain by myself. I did when we were in Colorado last, but I want to make sure I can continue that trend. I may be slow, but I made it by myself. Also, I made a promise to my kids that I would take care of myself. It seems so easy to get caught up in things and put my health on the back burner. I sometimes need to revisit my "why" because I get caught up in everything I want to do.
Honestly, I am a work in progress. This has come in cycles for me. This time, however, I really want this to stick. My weight loss is slower this time, but it's coming. I am making changes that are also sticking. One step at a time. Feel free to share your NSV or your why.
