Do you weigh yourself, keep track of your inches, do you worry about the numbers? I don't worry about the numbers, I don't ultimately care what the number on the scale says. But, as you may know I have been taking my measurements & weighing in every 2 weeks or so. Especially when I'm working out a lot I really like to see what my body is doing. I'm not obsessed with how much I weigh or inches I lose, but I do like to see progress in some way of the numbers when I feel like I'm working so hard.
But, This month I wanted to focus on just how I feel, how my clothes fit, my energy level...focusing more on the things I'm doing with my diet, getting stronger while working out, getting faster and better for my upcoming 10K without thinking about weighing in every 2 weeks. I haven't taken measurements or weighed myself at all since January 28th as you can see in the progress on My Fitness Story. It feels good to not even think about the numbers for a while, but focus on the most important things for me: just being and feeling healthy overall. Sometime in March I'll go ahead and do the numbers to see if there happens to be a change.
It does feel a little weird to not get on the scale at least once in a while, I guess it must be habit for me to just want to know where my body is. But, I'm staying away and I'll be nothing but happy if there is any sort of progression when I finally do sometime in March.
Do you watch the Biggest Loser? Of course they are all about the numbers, but that is what they need to do because they have a lot to lose. I feel like I'm walking around in circles with this post...haha, my point is I hope you are not obsessed with the numbers on the scale. Especially if you are at a normal weight range. Sometimes those stinkin' numbers can depress you, when there is no need for that. Just keep on putting your health in the right direction with good changes and see how you feel. If you do have a lot of weight to lose just give yourself small milestones, little by little is what it takes and you can do it!
