Numbers...

Lately I have found myself struggling with numbers regarding weightloss, bodyfat,... And it is something I never want to admit to myself as I thought everything was find. But now I have realised that it does bother me when the scales are not going down, that my body fat is still at 40% and so on...

Now my sessions with my PT are getting much tougher. So the result is that the scales also show that. When I weight myself the day after a weight session then I will definitely have put on some weight. And I know the reason why. But somehow this morning I had enough of weighing myself every day and being disappointed about the numbers not always going the way I want them to go. So I decided that I shouldn't get hung up on these numbers all the time and stop using the scales.

My main goal is still to get to 70kg. But that is right now such a long way off and don't want to focus on that. That is too depressing. A lot of people will tell you that it is how your clothes feel that is the main thing. And they are right. So will have to focus on that and my fitness. I have decided to exercise 6 times a week. I am still on target for this week. And as long as I do that the weight has to come off at some point. Maybe not when I want it go but it will go off. It is such a tricky thing these numbers thing ... But I have to get away of that as it is not helping me and there is more to life than numbers.

The other thing is that my social life has picked up quite a bit. So going out all the time is not going to help my weightloss. But on the other hand it makes me so much happier inside. And I am not going to put my life on hold because I want to weigh 70kg. That is soooo wrong. It might take me longer to get there but I will get there!! And the day I do I will have a massive party and invite everyone who has helped me along the way ... So you will be all invited !! :)

I keep wondering would I be happier if I weighed once a month. While I dont get completely down or up with a reading it does affect me a little.

so what if it takes a while longer to get to 'goal' (which is still, just a number!) it's the journey you take that counts.

enjoy the ride, have fun along the way and you're more likely to stay at your destination xx
