Good morning, everyone! Yes, it’s Monday again, and time for the weekly weigh-in. Ready? Here we go!
Hmm, let’s see … last week, it was 183.6, so I’m up 0.8 pounds. Should I be concerned?
Nah, definitely not! And here’s why: even though I only post my WEEKLY weigh-in here on this blog, I’ve been weighing myself DAILY for quite some time. I can tell you from personal experience that it really does make a difference in how you deal with these minor weight fluctuations. And it’s really easy to do, too. I just buy these cheap-y magnetic pads and write my weight on it every morning before breakfast.
See how it started out at 183.6, then went up a little, down a little, etc.? Chances are excellent that tomorrow, and/or later in the coming week, it’s gonna go down again. Ever heard the old saying, “God writes straight with crooked lines”?*
Well, weight loss is kinda the same way! Once you start keeping yourself in a calorie deficit (by whatever method works for you), the weight WILL start going in a downward trend. It’ll take some time, and there’ll be some ups and downs and zigzags along the way ’cause, well, we’re humans, not machines!
So don’t let those little fluctuations get to you. Just keep doing what you know you should be doing, and have faith* in the process — it’ll work! Just keep at it!
Have a great week, everyone!
*oh, and even though, as I’ve said before, this isn’t a religious blog, I personally don’t think I would have been able to do this without God’s help, so sue me! I could use the publicity, nyuk nyuk!
