Non- scale victories... While the scale may seem like it's the best measure of success, it's not! Gasp!!! Stay off the scale, I know, easier said than done. That sucker calls my name. Mostly because I want to make sure I'm in check, but I can see that in the mirror and in the way I feel!
Photos, inches, the way you feel, your stamina when working out, your food victories, no matter how insignificant they seem, adding heavier weights, shaving some time off your mile, these are non scale victories!
Here's mine for this month: I have successfully banished coffee mate for over a month! And I not only fit in, but I look great in my Hollister jeans. Growing up, they just never looked right on me, and it's been one of my goals... Must. Fit. Into. Hollister.
Stay off that scale! We are focusing on getting healthy, not getting skinny. Who wants to be skinny anyways?!
If you have experienced any of these, call this week a success! You are kickstarting your healthy lifestyle, and nothing can top that.
